One-bedroom loft-style apartment in Paris 18th arrondissement

My apartment (323 sq. ft.), completely renovated in early 2018, is located in the Goutte d'Or neighborhood between Barbès and Chateau Rouge near metro lines 4, 2 and 12 and only a fifteen-minute walk to the Gare du Nord (RER B to the CDG airport).
The downstairs consists of a tiled living-dining area and a kitchen. There is a microwave/electric oven, two induction hot plates and a medium-sized refrigerator as well as many cupboards. The downstairs looks out onto a shared courtyard. Stairs off the living room climb to the bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom has a hardwood floor, ample closet space, a double bed and small desk. A skylight allows for a bright atmosphere and for ventilation. The bathroom is tiled in travertine and has a shower, suspended toilet and wide sink. Behind the large mirror are several shelves, and there are drawers under the sink. A small balcony completes the upstairs, just off the bedroom, looking out onto the courtyard.
The neighborhood is safe, but the apartment does have bars on the downstairs window and a security door. There is also a double door lock to enter the complex from the street. The neighborhood is animated, with many small ethnic businesses, shopping and markets, restaurants, cinema (The Louxor), etc., and is within walking distance to the Halle St.Pierre quarter, Sacré Coeur and Montmartre.
The apartment can sleep three, but is more comfortable for one person or a couple.

About Me
I am an American living in Paris. I have been teaching English and translation at a local university for about thirty years. I go to NY regularly for research purposes, about three times a year. I am interested in exchanging my flat in Paris with one in NY for the fall semester 2019. I love cinema, going out with friends for a drink or meal, and of course reading.
