This apartment is on the 6th + top floors of a modern, elevator building which faces South (sunny and bright, with excellent breezy ventilation or A/C) and is across the street from a school, so it's quiet at night and in the mornings on weekends!

This neighborhood is very lively after the sun goes down. The East Village has been heavily built up over the last 5 years and located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Manhattan. The East Village offers a variety of restaurants, cafes, bars and a beautiful park. You can walk to Indian, Russian, Italian, Mexican, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Vegetarian and American restaurants within a 5 block radius. If you're too tired and beat up from touring NYC and don't feel like going anywhere, you can simply order room service and have anything delivered to the room (usually until 11 pm or midnight) as there are plenty of menus from all the nearby food establishments. These little privately owned restaurants are MUCH better than midtown/tourist-trap food chain places as well. There are at least three 24/hr places to get food within 2 blocks and about 50 restaurant/bars/cafes and shopping within a 3 block radius and probably 500 within a 10 block radius. This building is one of only a few in the neighborhood that has an elevator. About 95% of the buildings in the area are walk-ups. Enjoy a beautiful park (Tompkins Square) 2 blocks away the East River waterfront park about 5 streets/blocks to the east.
I'm always happy to recommend the cool, not-in-the-guide-books places for nightlife or dinner or anything else you may seek while in NYC!

It was great at Bruce's. Nice little Room with everything needed and pretty well connected to the center of Manhattan. Also some nice Bars arround.
We had 8 nights at the property and were very pleased. Bruce was an excellent host.
Previously, he sent us the exact directions. Cleared in advance on what we wanted to have breakfast and filled the fridge with it exactly. A great reception. He answered all our questions and gave advice.
The room was clean. The bathroom we had to share with him, which was not a problem. The apartment block has an own roof terrace. Madness, a panoramic view of Manhattan. To cook the room is not very suitable, because you have to put the two electric hot plates on the dining table, but everything is there, what you need for it.
The area is safe and with many cafés and pubs it has a student and invigorated.
We have felt very comfortable and can recommend it. Thank you Bruce!
Wir waren 8 Nächte in der Unterkunft und waren sehr zufrieden. Bruce war ein hervorragender Gastgeber.
Zuvor sendete er uns die genaue Wegbeschreibung. Klärte im Vorfeld ab, was wir frühstücken wollten und befüllte den Kühlschrank genau damit. Ein klasse Empfang. Er beantwortete alle unsere Fragen und gab Tipps.
Das Zimmer war sauber. Das Bad mussten wir uns mit ihm teilen, was aber kein Problem war. Der Wohnblock besitzt eine eigne Dachterrasse. Wahnsinn, ein Rundumblick über Manhatten. Zum Kochen ist das Zimmer nicht sehr geeignet, da man die zwei Elektroherdplatten auf den Esstisch stellen muss, dennoch ist alles da, was man dafür benötigt.
Die Gegend ist sicher und mit vielen Cafés und Kneipen wirkt sie sehr studentisch und belebt.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können es weiter empfehlen. Danke Bruce!
We really enjoyed staying here. Bruce is a friendly guy who obviously takes great care of both the apartment and the contact / communication with us. Clear and practical info beforehand and durng our stay, nice and clean apartment and a breakfast that we could specify some things we like. I definitely recommend this place to others and would love to stay with him again.
Bruce was a very accommodating host. I arrived early after flying all night and he allowed me to meet him and drop off my bags earlier than scheduled.
The apartment was very spacious and the view of the city from the roof terrace was excellent. It's in a great location to either walk or get the subway to restaurants or see tourist attractions.
Bruce gave me some handy tips for getting around the City as I was completely clueless.
The water pressure in the apartment would be the only downfall of the property, but this is no reflection on the host. It just means you need to take twice as long to shower.
I was also charged a ridiculous amount of fees by Windu which was not made clear upon placing the booking. Again, this is not something Bruce has control over. I would definitely stay here again cause it's a great location, but would certainly NOT book through Windu.
Good base in the north and south of Manhattan. All Public Must be good, for example, reached by city bikes. Immediately within three Citybike stations. Many good restaurants and pubs in the East Village around the corner. Top roof terrace with great views.
Guter Ausgangspunkt in den Norden und Süden von Manhattan. Alle Sightseeing Must sind gut, z.b. mit den Citybikes erreichbar. Unmittelbar im Umkreis sind drei Citybike Stationen. Viele gute Restaurants und Kneipen im East Village um die Ecke. Top Dachterrasse mit Super Aussicht.
What an absolutely wonderful apartment with such a wonderful host. Bruce made us feel very welcome and provided us with all the info we needed to make sure our stay was as easy as possible. The apartment is high quality, has everything you need and is in a fantastic spot to get to the subway, parks and anything you could want. Highly recommended! We cannot wait to go back.
Bruce was an incredibly gracious host who has supplied in advance with tips. All agreements folded fine, we even got a 2nd mattress and on a rainy day a nice letter with umbrellas. Although Bruce and a friend lived in the apartment, we never got it to actually face, only one night there was a loud quarrel. The room was very large and spacious. And the location is really great. All in all, highly recommended!
Great location, very central and Bruce is a very friendly and helpful host.
Bruce war ein unglaublich freundlicher Gastgeber der schon im Vorfeld mit Tips versorgt hat. Alle Absprachen klappten prima, wir bekamen sogar eine 2. Matratze und an einem Regentag einen netten Brief mit Schirmen. Obwohl auch Bruce und eine Freundin in den Apartment lebten, bekamen wir sie eigentlich nie zu Gesicht, nur eine Nacht gab es einen lauten Streit. Das Zimmer war sehr groß und geräumig. Und die Lage ist wirklich großartig. Alles in allem wirklich zu empfehlen!
Great location, very central and Bruce ist a very friendly and helpful host.
The room with a king-size bed, desk, sitting area and TV / fridge / air conditioning / coffeemaker / dishes / utensils is highly recommended for a holiday in New York. The room is in the basement of a large apartment block in the beautiful East Village with an ideal base for all areas of interest. The nearest subway is about 15 minutes to walk -. Supermarkets, bars and restaurants are around the corner.
In the basement is a fitness room and on the roof an ingenious terrace overlooking Manhattan's south. For athletes also offers a jogging route along the East River Park.
The bathroom with shower and toilet and the kitchen equipment in the hallway (hotplates, toaster / grill, microwave) are to share with Bruce and his partner, but since both of them were not often present, there were never collisions - neither in the bathroom nor in the preparation of breakfast. The ingredients for breakfast are (several times) provided by Bruce as desired worried and in the fridge - the preparation is then up to the residents themselves.
Bruce, we really enjoyed our stay in your apartment and highly recommend it to others! Thank you for your perfect hospitality! Hopefully we will see us again soon in NYC.
Das Zimmer mit King-Size-Bett, Schreibtisch, Sitzecke und TV/Kühlschrank/Klimaanlage/Kaffeemaschine/Geschirr/Besteck ist sehr zu empfehlen für einen Urlaub in New York. Das Zimmer befindet sich im Souterrain eines größeren Wohnblocks im schönen East Village mit einer idealen Ausgangslage für alle Sehenwürdigkeiten. Zur nächsten Subway sind ca. 15 Min. zu laufen - Supermärkte, Kneipen und Restaurants sind ums Eck.
Im Keller ist ein Fitnessraum und auf dem Dach eine geniale Terrasse mit Blick über Manhattan´s Süden. Für Sportler bietet sich auch eine Laufstrecke entlang des East River Parks an.
Das Bad mit Dusche und WC und die Küchengeräte am Gang (Kochplatten, Toaster/Grill, Microwelle) sind mit Bruce und seiner Partnerin zu teilen, da beide jedoch nicht oft anwesend waren, gab es nie Kollisionen - weder im Bad noch bei der Zubereitung des Frühstücks. Die Zutaten für das Frühstück werden von Bruce nach Wunsch (auch mehrmals) besorgt und in den Kühlschrank gestellt - die Zubereitung obliegt dann den Bewohnern selbst.
Bruce, we really enjoyed our stay in your apartment and highly recommend it to others! Thank you for your perfect hospitality! Hopefully we will see us again in NYC soon.
Thanks a lot Bruce!

Das Appartment hat wirklich alles was man so braucht. Bruce hat sogar deutsche Steckdosenadapter und eine Steckerleiste aufbewahrt.
Die Umgebung hat einige nette Restaurants und mit der naheliegenden U-Bahn-Linie ist man sehr schnell am Times Square.
Er ist wirklich sehr um seine Besucher bemüht. Sehr angenehm!
Bruce was a great host. Everything was perfect.
He gave us a lot of infomation about New York weeks before our stay there.
The appartment was clean and we were allowed to use everything we need, like salt,oil, honey,etc.
We just had to walk 8-10 minutes to subway station, where each attraction was accessible.
We recommend a stay at Bruce` appartment!
