I'm renting one private, fully furnished bedroom in my HUGE 2BR apartment. The room itself is small for a couple, but not unreasonable. The bathroom is shared, but cleaned frequently.
The apartment is right in the middle of the trendy East Village. Out the door are many restaurants, shops, bars, cafes, markets, etc etc. There are also many public transportation options nearby.
You will be sharing the apartment with me. I'm a really quiet 37 year old bachelor who works a lot. I'm working at home these days. I'm an extremely quiet guy for the most part, especially compared to the loud neighborhood outside.
- I'll provide clean towels and bed sheets.
- In the bedroom: Storage space: small closet, nice shelving system on the wall, and a small dresser. A full bed. A small desk.
- The huge part of the apartment is the nice sized kitchen and the gigantic living room, equipped with: large dining room table, couch, TV, stereo.
- Please note that the apartment is a 5th floor walk-up with no elevator.
I've gotten a few comments in the past saying that I'm aloof. This is true, I am aloof... I'm usually either busy working or hanging out with my girlfriend. So, really, it's not that I don't like you, I'm just preoccupied. Feel free to interrupt me at anytime and ask me anything.

Ben was on-time to meet me with the keys, friendly, and helpful in finding things to do in the area. The room is cozy and there's plenty of room in the apartment. I'd definitely stay here again.
Great location--close to restaurants, shopping and the subway. Ben was quick to respond and easy-going.
Stayed there for 10 days...Ben was a nice host and apartment is in a perfect location! Recommended!
Gostei do apê do Ben. O quarto é bem pequeninho mesmo. Fiquei com uma amiga lá. As duas tinha mala para um mês de viagem. Ficou meio apertado, mas não foi problema porque achei um lugar delicioso (bem em frente à varanda para ficar). O Bem foi muito gentil. É um cara que conhece bem NYC (e se não conhece, ele saca imediatamente o celular e descobre através do (website hidden)). Gente boa, gente fina, com uma vibe super (website hidden), definitivamente, ficaria lá de novo.
Nice place, great location - and the air conditioning allowed me to sleep in this super hot and humid period in New York...
Ben's place was definitely an authentic Manhattan apartment. As Ben makes clear, this is where he lives and works - it wasn't hotel-spotlessly clean, but was perfectly clean *enough*. If you're the sort of person who religiously cleans your own home every week or more you might be a bit disappointed - I'm not though :)
The building itself is far from new and that shows (just like any building a few decades old) but it's essentially a good flat with really spacious living room. It is, of course, also excellent value compared with NYC hotels!
The room size was perfectly adequate for me and my fiancee, and has a super-powerful a/c unit - which we needed as NYC was really hot while we visited. The a/c is loud though, so you probably want earplugs to sleep at night if you need to leave the a/c running.
We were out during the daytimes, Ben was often available in case we had had a problem or anything, but we didn't. The location is great for exploring New York as tourists, with a couple of different subway lines an easy walk away. We were able to see and do loads in just a few days, and we had an excellent stay overall.
I was very pleased with my stay at Ben's place in the East Village. The apartment is located in a great area with lots of things to do (bars, restaraunts, parks, etc..). It is also closely located to several subway stations, which is very convenient for getting to other parts of the city. Ben was prompt and courteous in his communication with me, and even met me at the door and helped me carry my bags to his apartment. The room was comfortable and Ben created a welcoming atmosphere in the apartment as a whole. I would definitely reccomend Ben to any of my friends or family visiting New York.
My sister and I had a great stay in NY! We were only there for a night to see a comedian and meet up with some friends so we needed a place to crash. Ben was really accommodating, and the room was comfortable and just what we needed. Would definitely stay here again!
My stay in Manhattan was so good. Thx to Ben that I had a good place to stay. I was out the whole day, enjoying that amazing city and came back for the night! Everything went well- keys etc.
Ben is a very friendly and helping person. His place is in a good location & only 5min walk to Astor Place subway. The room was small but good for a single person to stay. I had a great time visiting new york. Thank you Ben.
