This wonderful apartment with stunning hardwood floors is one of only two in the building. Up one flight of stairs with exposed brick walls, and into your 600 sq ft city getaway you will find a sparkling white bathroom (with combination shower/tub) and in the bedroom, your Queen- size, latex mattress awaits you (doctor recommended for bad backs).
Perfect for meals you may wish to “eat in,' the kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots, and pans for the cooks among you. But why cook? Some of New York’s finest restaurants are in the neighborhood.
Only steps away is the Grand Szechuan, recently opened and acclaimed by New York Magazine as Best New Chinese Restaurant and for the best price, too. And authentic to boot! Across the street is the famous St. Luke’s Place, listed in every guidebook as the Historic “must see” street in The Village. As day turns to night, the urban sounds of the city immerse you in the magic of the New York City experience.
You can rent a book from the Hudson Branch of the New York Library and enjoy it nearby in The James J. Walter Park. The Park packs plenty of entertainment for children of all ages; from jungle gyms to tether ball, ball fields and athletic fields, as well as an Italian Bocce Court for the young-at-heart. Adjacent is the Tony Dapolito Recreation Center which offers adult memberships at $35, seniors at $10, and 6-17 year olds are free.
Bleecker Street, only two short blocks away, is famous for its new designer shops and specialty food stores, selling everything from freshly baked bread to homemade Italian sausage. Experience what it is like to be a real New Yorker with anything that you could ever want within 2 blocks. We are sure you will enjoy your stay in this charming Village apartment near all transportation, shopping and some of the best restaurants in the Village. The 6th and 7th Avenue subway lines are close and all other lines are nearby.
Whatever your heart desires, from music to food, is within minutes of this magical apartment.
