•This is a special place for the right person(s): 14 windows, 50s modern furniture, great art, classy and spacious. One subletter described as “amazing”; another said he had rarely seen such gracious and elegant space in the city. Most spacious and airy space you will find in the thriving and exciting neighborhood of the East Village. You can see the moon out the windows!

Some reviews from past renters:
"This is an incredible apartment. the place is a slice of NY few people get to experience. Everything was perfect, the apartment is full of the best kind of character, and the park is super close. If you are into lofty spaces and have an opportunity to stay here, I highly recommend you do."
•"This comfortable apartment is a joy to come home to at night. And the many windows and books and plants make it a pleasure during the day as well. We had everything we needed for comfort, and the bed is lightly firm and good. The water heats up quickly and the shower has nice pressure."
•"The flat is just amazing. so spacious and central. Really perfect location. Nice and quiet but less than 5 min walk to great breakfast/brunch places. We thought the flat was too good to be true, but was exactly like the pictures and more."
•"The apartment is an even better experience than the photographs show. Being on the 6th floor, you are distant from most of the noise of NY below. A fabulous, beautiful and spacious space to retreat to after a busy day. You are within walking distance to good restaurants as well as less expensive food options. small markets so you can self-cater and parks. The only issue is you might love it so much you don't feel compelled to go out!"
