YOUR OWN LARGE PRIVATE ROOM, fully furnished in 2 -bedroom apt.

675 total sq ft apt. which takes up the entire 1st floor in a well-managed, quiet 4-floor brownstone building.

Share kitchen & bath with myself only and have your morning coffee or evening drink in the private backyard . Utilities are incl. like high-speed Wi-Fi and Con Edison). Sorry, theres no TV in the apt but Spectrum access is in place if you want it. 3 cats live here also and they also like the backyard.

The rental room is larger than it appears in the photo, the bed is queen size, the mattress is vintage 2017.

Im a personable guy and I like conversation if you like it. If youre new in the city, I offer advice and tips on how to make your stay in the Big City more interesting, easier and perhaps more affordable.

Youd be staying in a rapidly changing, and yes, safe neighborhood:
The Shopping Center East River Plaza, that holds Target, Costco, Starbucks, Burlington, Aldi is just 3 walking minutes from my apt. In theres also a new Planet Fitness which, at $10/mo, is a bargain. This mall and gentrification have changed this funky nhood - quo vadis? Rents are going up but so have restaurants, bars, cafes... Still, expect most daily everythings to be cheaper than in any other part of Manhattan.

Ive lived in this apt since 2006, in this nhood since 98 and in NY City much longer: Originally from Zurich, Switzerland, Im a freelance designer/writer & art director and I work out of home. Currently, Im engaged w artists from Cuba (and the ever-changing situation on the island...) as their representative/dealer.

To come and go:
Theres a bus stop 1 min. from here to get to Lex./116th & no 6 local subway or you could walk there along busy 116th St. & which would take you approx. 10 min. Also, a subway ride from 116th & Lex. to Grand Central Sta./42nd Street is 17 min

Im sure you have questions - please ask. Thanks for reading all this and good luck in your search.
