This apartment was everything that we expected. The sun certainly did come in the front windows, which also had a very nice view of the trees below and lots of birds who used them. I have a fear of elevators, but the one up to our 4th floor apartment was excellent--never squeaked or shook or anything bad, and even went relatively quickly. The bed was super, super comfortable, and the shower was always hot and never varied in intensity or temperature of the water. And the location--excellent! Everyone we talked to told us how the LOE is THE place to be, and we believe it! Wonderful bars and restaurants within 2 blocks. We especially liked being only two blocks from the Tenement Museum, which we visited three times.
My only objections were 1) having to eat at either a tiny, high table or the low glass table in front of the couch and 2) no convenient lights above or next to the bed for being able to read in bed. I do believe that Rod could do something about adding a light or two. But everything else was excellent--no problem picking up the key or returning it to the very kind and helpful gentlemen across the street, or Rod's answering our various emails after our arrival in New York. Thank you for a nice place.
