House-share in a historic pre-war brownstone 15 minutes to Manhattan. Private deck, parking, Triplex. Brooklyn vibe in the 6th Borough

Experience the most diverse city in the country. This is a rare opportunity to share space with a traveler/writer/entrepreneur, in a historic, 2 bed-2.5 bath apt with a pvt deck and parking in a pre-war building in the heart of Paulus Hook.

You get to enjoy a lovely bedroom with in-built study+recently renovated designer private bathroom, a full kitchen, two living room spaces, a private deck. Guest 0.5 bath downstairs.

I am a world traveler, writer and entrepreneur. I traveled for 170 days last year across 9 countries, 33 cities. I am working on independent writing and research projects in the arts. I have lived in Jersey City since 2002. I worked in Manhattan for 14+ years and can be your local guide.

Built in the late 1800's and recently renovated, my home is a beautiful, light filled triplex with a roof-deck and attached parking. I am looking to share my apartment with a clean considerate room-mate, who will treat my beautiful home as their own. My master bedroom is self-contained and is detached from the the adjacent bedroom+attached bath and I am very private. However, I continue travel extensively and would appreciate a trusted guest who could be a good custodian when I am not around.

Location & Transport: 5 minutes on PATH to World Trade Center in Manhattan and 20 min. to 33rd Street. Equidistant from the Exchange Place & Grove Street Path (7 min walk either), and close to the Light Rail and the ferries. PRIME area in a gorgeous, historic brownstone.

Space for visitors is 1 bedroom-with inbuilt study, attached pvt bath. Access to kitchen, LARGE living room, private roof deck. I am self-teaching design thinking, creative problem solving and entrepreneurship. I would love the dialogue and exposure to the academic community.
I have been local to Jersey City and Manhattan since 2002. Car access possible as well. NO SMOKERS. No Pets.

Entire apt is 1500 sq feet, 2 bed, 2.5 bath.. Pvt Roof Deck. Attached car parking.

Location: The home is centrally situated in a beautiful historic neighborhood in Paulus Hook, with quick access to both Path trains that connect you to downtown and midtown Manhattan and ferries. Everything is within walkable distance, restaurants, grocery stores and bars. Closest universities, NYU, St.Peters, Stevens. Car ride away to Rutgers. All NYC based colleges, including Columbia are 2 train rides away (Path+Metro). Approximate time to mid-town Manhattan 33rd and 6th avenue is 35 minutes, downtown Manhattan is 10 minutes via Path and 7 minutes via Ferry.

About Me
Hi! I recently completed 14 years in finance and am exploring a number of creative and entrepreneurial projects this year. I am also self-teaching myself design thinking and applying it to various facets of my life. I am an avid traveler, both within the US and outside and am traveling for close to 6 months this year. I studied Anthropology and Economics as an undergrad and am currently liasing with numerous academic institutions to determine opportunities for collaboration. I love food and wine, studying new cultures, languages, music, books and the arts. I live in a beautiful space and consider my home a sanctuary in a well-situated neighborhood within thriving Jersey City.
