Two easy flights up, this is an unfurnished one bedroom floor-through in the heart of the East Village available for a one year minimum rental.
The renovated eat-in kitchen features stainless steel countertops and appliances, including an oversized fridge, dishwasher, washer and dryer. The sun-filled king-sized bedroom has a large closet, additional built-in storage, and a leafy, open view. The expansive living room offers plenty of room for a home office. Oak floors throughout.
This apartment is perfectly located in a 24/7 neighborhood, right next to some of the City's best restaurants, shopping, nightlife, parks, and the newly-developed East River recreation area for biking and jogging. It's convenient to three different subway lines, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, as well as the NYU, New School, SVA, and Cooper Union campuses.
I can show the place beginning August 5th. This is a formal, legal, above-board sublet arrangement. If you decide you'd like to apply for the apartment, I'll ask you to fill out a short application. If I decide to put you forward to my management company and co-op board, they will require a more detailed application along with a credit check fees, letters of support from your employer and current landlord, and copies of your last two years' tax returns. I'll need first and last month's rent plus a 1-month security deposit. The good news: there's no broker fee. (In NYC, the broker fee can run as high as 15% of a year's rent.)
(Again, this rental is for one year minimum. Up to two cats would be okay; no dogs. I can email a floor plan if you're interested; I had trouble uploading it when I posted photos of the apartment.)
I write historical fiction (two novels, both published with the Riverhead imprint of Penguin, one set in 1880s Kyoto, one set in 1920s Paris) and teach fiction writing part time at Columbia University.
Drawn to the East Village by its literary and counter cultural history, I lived in the neighborhood for ten happy years before moving to the West Village for an easier commute. When my mother passed away, she left me some money, with which I bought this apartment: I'm glad to have a stake in the old neighborhood again.
I'm an urbanite, but I'm a tree-hugger, too: I bought this apartment for the view out the front window, which looks across First Avenue to the trees in front of Village View Towers. Because the Towers are set way back from the street, an unusual amount of sunlight reaches the apartment, especially in the mornings when you need it most. I also love the washer/dryer, which is invaluable in a walk up apartment.
This apartment is convenient to three different subway lines, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, as well as the NYU, New School, SVA, and Cooper Union campuses.
