All who stay will experience living in a fantastic apartment in NYC while saving a few bucks from pricey NYC hotels that are located in the heart of the tourist frenzy areas in midtown. It's new, very clean and is in a great location, being only 2 minute walk to subway or less than a minute to a bus stop.
The apartment has a large bedroom, full bathroom, fully stocked kitchen and living room with 2 new modern retro sofas that also fold out flat into comfy double/full beds, HD TV with 1900+ channels, WiFi and includes breakfast!
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!

Reviews for this host's other properties
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!
Everything was perfect. You are a great host!
The apartment was very clean.
We recommend a stay at Bruce` apartment!
The apartment really has everything you could possibly need. Bruce has kept even German socket adapters and power strip.
The surrounding area has some nice restaurants and the nearby metro line one is very fast in Times Square.
He really is very concerned about its visitors. Very pleasant!
Thanks a lot Bruce!
Everything was perfect. You are a great host!
The appartment was very clean.
We recommend a stay at Bruce` appartment!
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!
The apartment Bruce is perfectly situated in the lovely East Village, plenty of nice restaurants and bars to get some food / drink and all that literally around the corner. Metro is within walking distance and provides easy access to all hotspots. Metro is about 10-15min walk, alone with a nice walk along park and quaint shops, coffee shops and restaurants. Apartment is fine for his 2and, good bed, a table for breakfast and cozy to own fridge which is stocked on arrival with breakfast. Entire apartment is very clean! Shower is fine, and you share with the residents. In our case it seemed a private bathroom / home, because we are only at the Bruce and Cindy weggan bumped. However, they were constantly ready to give tips / advice if you wanted it. So we are, for example. Been to Union Square for the Christmas market, verruit the best in all of NY! All in all highly recommended and I would stay there again so when I go to NY!
Het appartement van Bruce is perfect gelegen in het leuke East village, genoeg leuke restaurantjes en barretjes om wat te eten/drinken en dat allemaal letterlijk om de hoek. Metro is op loopafstand en geeft goede verbinding naar alle hotspots. Metro is zo'n 10-15min lopen, met alleen al een leuke wandeling langs parkje en leuke winkeltjes, koffietentjes en restaurantjes. Appartement is prima voor z'n 2en, goed bed, een tafeltje om gezellig aan te ontbijten en eigen koelkastje welke bij aankomst gevuld is met ontbijt. Hele appartement is erg schoon! Douche is prima, en deel je met de bewoners. In ons geval leek het wel een prive badkamer/huis, want we zijn Bruce en Cindy pas bij het weggan tegen het lijf gelopen. Wel stonden ze continue klaar om tips/advies te geven als je dat wilde. Zo zijn wij bijv. naar Union square geweest voor de kerstmarkt, verruit de leukste in heel NY! Al met al zeker aan te raden en ik zou er zo weer verblijven als ik weer naar NY ga!
A super great room and shower facilities. Bruce and Cindy were very gracious and hospitable. The area around the East Village is super cozy, with many fine restaurants, and there is easy access to the subway.
Et super godt værelse, og gode badefaciliteter. Bruce og Cindy var meget imødekommende og gæstfrie. Området omkring East Village er super hyggeligt, med mange fine restauranter, og der er let adgang til subway.
It was just the best at Bruce. He is just great, our stay was short, but he has given us all the information we needed. It was clean and very comfortable. We have felt very comfortable and would stay there again. The subway is about a 10 minute walk. Nearby restaurants and opportunities are to buy things. A very nice and safe environment. Thanks, Bruce
Es war einfach top bei Bruce. Er ist einfach klasse, unser Aufenthalt war zwar kurz, aber er hat uns alle Informationen gegeben, die wir brauchten. Es war sauber und sehr komfortabel. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden immer wieder dort übernachten. Die Subway ist ca. 10 Minuten zu Fuß. In der Umgebung sind Restaurants und Möglichkeiten Dinge zu kaufen. Eine sehr schöne und sichere Umgebung. Danke, Bruce
Bruce was a very kind and helpful host. Location of the B&B in East village was great.We can only recommend to stay with Bruce.
Great stay at Bruce & Cyndi's in the fantastic East village.Easy reach of subway(about 10 min's walk) area full of every type of restaurant you could ever need seems safe enough at any time & its great to stay as part of the city instead of just being in an anonymous hotel.Would stay again no problem.
we stayed 14 days at Bruce's appartment and had a fantastic time. The room we had was very clean and homely. There was a small fridge, cable TV and WLAN. It perfectly fitted our needs and we felt straight at home. We could even sit outside and have a smoke and a glass of wine which is not that common in NY. Bruce and Cindy are fantastic hosts took time to talk to us and gave us excellent tips on were to eat in the neighbourhood. In short: good people that make you feel welcome. The appartment comes with a shared roof terrace which gives an incredible view of the NY skyline. The neighbourhood is secure and there are loads of good restaurants and bars. The underground is quite easy to reach so it's perfect to get to other burrows as well. All in all we can highly recommend a stay with Bruce and Cindy.
First I want to thank to Bruce and Cyndi by their attentions. They tried to provide us everything we needed.
We were all the time visiting the town, but the few time that we shared, they were very nice.
About the room, it was all what we need. It is clean and more than enough for 2 persons. May be that i missed a kitchen (as Spanish I like cook frequently), but there are a lot of place to eat in the zone, so it isn't really a problem, and Bruce has got an double hot plate where you can prepare something.
The building is great (2 lifts/elevators, gym, laundry) and the doormen, in special Bob, are friendly.
The zone is good and the weekend have a lot of revelry. There are some bus lines crossing it and they leave you in subway stations, so you can access to any place of the city easily.
In resume, it was a nice experience that we would like repeat.
To all who thinks in visit NY, Bruce's appartment is a nice option.
