All who stay will experience living in a fantastic apartment in NYC while saving a few bucks from pricey NYC hotels that are located in the heart of the tourist frenzy areas in midtown. It's new, very clean and is in a great location, being only 2 minute walk to subway or less than a minute to a bus stop.
The apartment has a large bedroom, full bathroom, fully stocked kitchen and living room with 2 new modern retro sofas that also fold out flat into comfy double/full beds, HD TV with 1900+ channels, WiFi and includes breakfast!
This apartment is on the 6th + top floors of a modern, elevator building which faces South (sunny and bright, with excellent breezy ventilation or A/C) and is across the street from a school, so it's quiet at night and in the mornings on weekends!

This neighborhood is very lively after the sun goes down. The East Village has been heavily built up over the last 5 years and located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Manhattan. The East Village offers a variety of restaurants, cafes, bars and a beautiful park. You can walk to Indian, Russian, Italian, Mexican, Japanese, Chinese, Thai, Vegetarian and American restaurants within a 5 block radius. If you're too tired and beat up from touring NYC and don't feel like going anywhere, you can simply order room service and have anything delivered to the room (usually until 11 pm or midnight) as there are plenty of menus from all the nearby food establishments. These little privately owned restaurants are MUCH better than midtown/tourist-trap food chain places as well. There are at least three 24/hr places to get food within 2 blocks and about 50 restaurant/bars/cafes and shopping within a 3 block radius and probably 500 within a 10 block radius. This building is one of only a few in the neighborhood that has an elevator. About 95% of the buildings in the area are walk-ups. Enjoy a beautiful park (Tompkins Square) 2 blocks away the East River waterfront park about 5 streets/blocks to the east.
I'm always happy to recommend the cool, not-in-the-guide-books places for nightlife or dinner or anything else you may seek while in NYC!

Reviews for this host's other properties
Lovely apartment, great location, friendly welcome and clean. Definitely recommended. We (5 pers.) Chose air mattress in one of the two bedrooms (present and very comfortable). Sleeping in the room (sofa bed), but also did not our preference. However, only four stools and what meager cutlery but that did not spoil the fun!
Heerlijk appartement, goede plek, vriendelijke ontvangst en schoon. Zeker een aanrader. Wij (5 pers.) kozen voor luchtbed in een van de twee slaapkamers (is aanwezig en zeer comfortabel). Slapen in de kamer (bedbank) kan ook maar had niet onze voorkeur. Wel maar 4 krukken en wat karig bestek maar dat mocht de pret niet drukken!
Our stay at Bruce's was definitely great! He kept in touch and sent us useful information before our arrival. The room was cosy, everything we needed was there. Whenever we had a question, Bruce was happy to help us. The neighbourhood is really wonderful, we think it's the best place to stay at in New York.
We had an excellent stay at Bruce's place. The room is very spacious and has plenty of room, the bed is very comfy and breakfast is included. It a 10 minute walk away from the subway; the neighbourhood seems to be safe around the clock, so no worries there. There are a lot of bars and restaurants nearby, so you won't be bored. The appartement features a nice rooftop view over Manhattan - buildings like the Empire state, the Crysler and the new Freedom tower are nicely visible.
Best of all, we really liked Bruce himself. He has loads to tell and tips about what to do (and what not) in NYC. He's really relaxed and down to earth. As we didn't know wether we'd get out of the city or not (due to an upcoming storm, which grounded a few hundred planes) Bruce offered us to stay for another night (without charge); as far I am concerned, he was the perfect host.
Highly advised :)
Bruce and Cindy are very friendly! Hyper welcoming their apartment is clean, great location close to everything because (walking and metro). They advised us and made us feel comfortable and at home (because it is true that it is a bit annoying from "squatter" among others ...) but all is well past. There was no problem to link even with the language barrier we were able to have conversations, not really it was great! They made us live a great experience, and we were able to share with them our first Thanksgiving meal with the famous turkey was delicious! You can trust their really, do not hesitate to go home. It is true however, that the street is a bit noisy but hey, New York is the city that never sleeps, so it is something that is difficult to counter.
Bruce and Cindy are so kind, so friendly and so welcoming! Their apartment is clean, well located, near from everything (walking or taking the subway). You can really trust 'em, They adviced us and make us feel like home. We Could Have Some odd talk the language barrier. It was just a wonderfull trip, we loved it! The only drawback is the street noise at night goal, well, New York is the city that never sleeps so we can not do nothing for That No, really, we advice you to choose Bruce and Cindy, They are really great people!
Have a nice trip!

Bruce et Cindy sont très sympas ! Hyper accueillant, leur appartement est propre, super bien placé car proche de tout (à pied et en métro). Ils nous ont conseillé et nous ont fait nous sentir à l'aise, comme chez nous (car il est vrai que c'est un peu gênant au départ de "squatter" chez les autres...) mais tout c'est très bien passé. Il n'y a eu aucun problème pour créer des liens même avec la barrière de la langue on a pu avoir des conversations, non vraiment c'était super ! Ils nous ont fait vivre une super expérience, et nous avons pu partager avec eux notre premier repas de Thanksgiving avec la fameuse dinde qui était délicieuse ! Vous pouvez leurs faire confiance vraiment, n'hésitez pas à allez chez eux. Il est vrai cependant, que la rue est un peu bruyante mais bon, New York est la ville qui ne dort jamais, c'est donc quelque chose qu'il est difficile de contrer.

My Family of 4 adults and 1 child stayed in Bruce's apartment for 3 nights, the apartment was big enough for all us. It was clean and newly decorated...the location was just right for us with plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants just at the end of the street.
Bruce was very helpful and a great host, he met us outside the apartment when we arrived and showed us around the apartment and made us feel at home.
There was plenty of juice and milk in the fridge which was a bonus.
Would definitely stay here again if I travel to NYC.
Thanks again Bruce for making our stay comfortable and easy
Warm, Bruce is very friendly. Ideal room to sleep only (noisy, provide ventilation ball earplugs because the other apartments) For breakfast, there is a little light (lack of orange juice or bread) The apartment is very well located ( near shops and transport) and we spent one week enjoyable. We recommend this apartment anyway.
Accueil chaleureux, Bruce est très sympathique.
Chambre idéal pour dormir seulement (bruyant, prévoir boule quies pour cause ventilation des autres appartements)
En ce qui concerne le petit déjeuner, il est un peu léger (manque de jus d'orange ou de pain)
L'appartement est très bien situé (proche commerces et transports) et nous avons passé 1 semaine agréable.
Nous recommandons cet appartement malgré tout.
Very kind and helpful people. Perfect place if you enjoy the laid back atmosphere of East Village. I’d like to come back! Thank you Bruce.
Bruce is a very nice and helpful host. We also enjoyed the large, clean rooms very much. Only limitation is the lack of food. There is a small coffee maker, fridge and micro. For us it was fine. But what is really really great, this is the location in the bustling, colorful East Village! We had fun exploring the countless witty, very individual shops, pubs and restaurants. If you like walking a conquered city, here is the perfect starting point! Weather permitting, the roof terrace is a great place to look over all of Manhattan, or to relax with a book. We would come back!
Bruce ist ein sehr netter und hilfsbereiter Gastgeber. Uns hat auch das große, saubere Zimmer sehr gefallen. Einzige Einschränkung ist die fehlende Küche. Es gibt eine kleine Kaffeemaschine, Kühlschrank und Micro. Für uns war es in Ordnung. Was aber wirklich richtig genial ist, das ist die Lage im quirligen, bunten East Village! Wir hatten viel Spaß beim Erkunden der unzähligen witzigen, ganz individuellen Läden, Kneipen und Lokale. Wer gerne zu Fuß eine Stadt erobert, hat hier den perfekten Startpunkt! Bei schönem Wetter ist die Dachterrasse ein großartiger Platz, um über ganz Manhatten zu schauen, oder mit einem Buch zu entspannen. Wir würden wieder kommen!
Bruce is very kind and his room is really convenient and quiet
That is a great advantage in NYC and the neighborood is really nice
Thanks a lot Bruce
Bruce was a very accommodating host and welcomed us warmly to New York! Lots of info was provided via e-mail before arriving so that was great.
The room itself was clean and spacious, and East Village is a fantastic location to spend some time and feel like a local in NYC.
If you were hoping to do lots of cooking (we weren't, we were more than happy to eat around New York :D) then the kitchen doesn't offer the best facilities and is quite small, it sits in the small hallway room between the bathroom, your room and Bruce's room.
If you're happy to eat out and want to be in a great local area of New York out of the super tourist area then I definitely recommend Bruce's place!
