Semi-furnished, large (17.5 feet X 13 feet), sunny bedroom with 2 windows looking out over a park. You see sky and trees, you hear birds and dogs. Room contains 2 closets, quality queen size bed with a new mattress cover, one desk, chair, two closets and an Antique wardrobe which cant be removed, you can also have a garment rack if you need. Desk and chair can be removed, but, wardrobe and bed cant. I also have sheets and towels if you need them.

Express A-train is 2 blocks away, 20 min. to Columbus Circle, 30 min. to Union sq., and 40-45 min commute to Wall street. The #1 and C trains are 5 blocks away. Columbia U. Medical Schools are all a few blocks away, Columbia Presbyterian Hospital is 5 blocks away.

Available starting APRIL 1st (dates are a bit flexible), but, you must rent for a min. of 3 months. Actually I am looking for a permanent roommate, but, I want to have a trial period of 3-4 months.

You will be sharing a clean kitchen, bathroom, and dining room with a me. I am a Portrait Painter who works at home in my room. Since I do work at home I would prefer a roommate who either has a full-time job, or is a full-time student, but more important is someone compatible, and responsible with bills. Sometimes I babysit my mothers dog, so you must at least like a part-time small dog (Rat Terrier named TARA).

laundry is in the basement, there is a doorman. The price of $1,104 per month includes WIFI, with an additional contribution for gas/electric. Since air-conditioning incurs additional costs in summer-estimate $30-$70 depending on electric bill. This sublet is for one female, but, a sometime guest is welcome as long as you discuss ahead with me. One guest can stay no more than 10 days during a one month period.

Washington Heights is a quiet, safe, neighborhood near major NYC hospitals, and University Medical schools. There are also lots of supermarkets 4 blocks away and a daily green market. You can also buy a bike (there is room for another bike in the kitchen) and ride almost all around Manhattan along the river from here.

This room is great for someone spending the summer in NYC to study, move here for a new job, doing an internship, needing a place to stay while renovating their own home, recently divorced, etc. It is NOT GOOD for someone smoking, in NYC for a constant nightly party, doing drugs, or, someone who needs to store a lot of boxes and furniture. You will be required to show me proof of what you do in NYC, (letter from a university, proof of employment, proof of projects, etc), also I will give the building a photocopy of your ID, and register you as my roommate so in case you are locked-out, or, need emergency repairs if I am away the building will know that you are staying with me.

If you live far away I can SKYPE/Whatsapp, or, Face Time with you to show you my apartment. You are welcome to send over a friend or family member to see my flat. Io Parlo Italiano, Je parle Francaise, Ich can un bischian Deutch sprechen!
