About our home

Our comfortable East Village 3.5 Bedroom apartment is unusually spacious and light, full of books and toys, and family-friendly. Fabulously situated on a quiet block just steps from Tompkins Square Park and close to all of the bars, restaurants, and people-watching that the bohemian neighborhood has to offer. Easy walking distance from NoLiTa, Soho, Greenwich Village, and the Lower East Side (with buses and subways a short walk as well).

We are a family of 4 (children age 11 and 5), who love to travel and have friends all over the world. We have two bedrooms with single beds (children's rooms) as well as a master bedroom where the Queen size bed is located, and a small study with an extremely comfortable sofa bed could sleep two more. A family of four or five would be very comfortable in our home. We are a television-free household, but we have wifi that we are happy to share with you. The kitchen is equipped with a dishwasher, clothing washing machine (though no dryer - we use a rack), and the cozy bathroom has a steam shower.

Our apartment is on the 5th floor, which means lots of light, but please note: This is a walk-up building; there is no elevator or lift!!
