This lovely apartment is at the heart of a thriving neighborhood, the trendy East Village which combines chic cafes, coffee bars, restaurants, galleries, and upscale shopping with the continuing vitality of the traditional Lower East Side are, long the melting pot of waves of immigration into this country starting just after the Civil War. Institutions such as Katz"s Delicatessen and Russ and Daughters have survived the gentrification and are still dispensing delicacies of Eastern Europe in much the same manner that they did nearly 100 years ago.
The apartment, which has been cleverly converted, consists of two rooms; one is a living room with sofa bed (which is used as a sleeping area for a third) and a bedroom with a comfortable queen size loft bed. There is also a small, but pleasant kitchen area with fridge, stove top, coffeemaker, and microwave--its perfect for preparing your morning coffee to have with a freshly baked croissant available just down the street, or perhaps a genuine New York bagel from the area that made bagels a household word.
Looking for a change from the touristy blight of midtown? Come stay for a week, and be on the cutting edge of the hippest section of New York City.The apartment is a short walk from Soho, Alphabet City, Little Italy, Chinatown, Greenwich Village, and right across the bridge from Williamsburg.
Other amenities include: AC, cable television, wireless internet service, artwork, stereo, and linens.

The New York region
"Master songwriter Irving Berlin summed it up rather succinctly, "Everybody ought to have a Lower East Side in their life." A neighborhood so diverse and culturally rich undoubtedly deserves the recognition. After all, society owes an invaluable debt of gratitude to the onetime slum. Much of our nation is descendant from those who passed through here. Not to mention the innovations birthed in this historical doorstep community. The area spawned creative institutions like Yiddish Theater, Vaudeville, ice cream sandwiches, Punk Rock, and certain slang-speak still in common parlance (e.g. "Jonesin'," "On a Bender," “Chum,” “Kick the bucket”). But enough of what was. What is, is a neighborhood composed of a gung-ho populace, and one that continues its evolution in eclectic ways. For the last decade, new architecture has hastily replaced the pre-war tenement standard, thus paving the way for contrasting streetscapes. For instance, trendy glass hotels are flanked by low-rise residential living; upscale hair salons and galleries sitting side-by-side with unisex barbers and tailor shops. Such drastic change also serves as catalyst for nightlife. Restaurants and bars - the old standbys and popular new destinations alike - continue to attract ballooning crowds from across the tri-state area. Of course, it's hard to ignore the vibrant street art scene on the Lower East Side. For decades, some of the city's finest have graced gates and facades with colorful murals (Chico, Lee Quinones, Keith Haring). These days, graffiti writers near and far paste and paint their part. The iconic wall at Bowery and East Houston, for example, is a coveted space, hosting a revolving door of artwork, including recent placements by Os Gemeos, Kenny Scharf, and JR. Our ancestors couldn't wait to escape. Now their descendants can't wait to gain entry!" ( Neighborhood description provided by "Bowery Boogie":http://www.boweryboogie.com/)
