We (Brian & Shonda) currently have a great bedroom available for short term (please inquire about longer term) stays in our 2 bedroom apartment.
Conveniently located on 24th and 7th, this unit is on the ground floor of a walk-up building (In other words No Stairs :-)). We have been the only occupants since it was gut renovated 2 years ago, mint condition still. Whole Foods on the corner, Trader Joe's a few blocks away, FIT, New School and NYU all within easy access. West Village, Gramercy, Meatpacking District, Madison Square Park, High Line Park, Union Square... pretty much anywhere you want to go all within a matter of minutes. Subway lines around the corner include 1,C,E. A block further you have the F and M trains.
Don't waste your money on hotels, stay in the best neighborhood in manhattan!
