Abundance of space, small building... this experience is stately & distinguished; a perfect match for small cocktail parties or filming/photo work. Book now if you're seeking those true New York artist vibes for your next project. This is a large 1500 sq foot (150 sq meters) duplex event space with a garden. A luxury yet vintage accommodation with two working fire places and large windows to let light shower into the living room, this duplex house is already a true gem before considering the 300 sq ft (27 sq meters) garden which is the perfect place to eat breakfast or enjoy a good book. In Manhattan, this is where city luxury meets genteel country living. The master bedroom features a Casper queen size bed, gas fireplace, 50 inch HD TV, a stylish midcentury modern working desk and full size private bathroom with 2 sinks with standing shower and separate tub. The master bedroom also features large windows that bath the room in sunlight and offer a nice view of other living and garden arrangements of our neighbors. You also have access to a full size kitchen, which is rare for New York City, and a large living room with gas fireplace. This then leads out to the beautiful garden escape where you might just happen to forget that you are in the city altogether. A perfect oasis in the best neighborhood in the city. It is truly a priceless amenity. You can even see the stars at night. Please be mindful of our neighbors and keep noise to a minimum. They are old, crotchy...and apparently have the cops on speed dial. Seriously! Be cool calm and collected when you are out there. At the heart of Greenwich Village lies Washington Square Park, where on any given day you can see NYU students huddled against a tree with their reading, local songwriters strumming on their guitars, artists sketching the variegated scene, and even old men playing chess. In the middle of the park is a large round fountain, which is at the center of activity in the summertime. Greenwich Village has always been a haven for artists, leftist thinkers, political movements, and new ideas. It hosted a big Beatnik community in the sixties, who moved there to escape what they perceived to be social conformity and oppression. Every subway train is within 5 minute walk or less of the event space. This is the best location in the entire city transport wise. Cabs come right in front of our event space every few minutes. Can't be beat.
I live in the building and I am available if you need me, but won't bother you if you don't. Please be prepared to present your passport or a valid US driver's license upon entry to the event space, we will make a copy, this is to verify your identity in an effort to protect residents of the building and for insurance purposes. And in case we need to contact the police for your misbehavior. Due to insurance restrictions, no people other than those listed on the reservation are allowed at the event space at any time. Please message me the full names of all guests who will come into the event space. Please do not ask me during your stay if it's okay if someone comes over, it is a not something I like to reply to, it makes me very uncomfortable. Please do not break this rule, I do have surveillance cameras set up of the common areas of the event space, the second entrance, and garden area. This is for your protection and for mine, and to protect my investment in the furniture. If there is any damage I will review the footage to see when it occurred. If I suspect there are more people in the event space than on the reservation, I will review the video to see how many people have entered and possibly terminate your event. Please leave the event space as you found it, this is my home, not a hotel, please don't trash it :( If you accidentally break or scratch something; or if you think something in the event space isn't working as it should..please don't hesitate to start a conversation with me I am very reasonable and compassionate, and am certain we can figure out a solution to any concern you may have before, during, and after your reservation. No parties, excessive noise or drug use please. The neighbors will call the cops and someone will get locked up. I promise you this. It has happened before. We are in a very expensive part of the city, and our neighbors don't put up with any excessive noise. Smoking is allowed out in the garden, but not in the event space. It is best to smoke in the garden at night after 9pm, but light cigarette smoking in the garden during the day should be okay. You can smoke out front of the building or garden, but please do not smoke inside the event space. If I suspect you are smoking I will review the video camera footage and potentially cancel your reservation mid-stay and not refund you any money. That is my right. Airbnb House Rules are as follows: "There's no penalty for canceling if guests break your rules." I repeat now for clarity: if you smoke in the event space or if you have guests visit the event space who have not been approved before your reservation, your reservation will be terminated immediately and you will not be refunded any money. -Please remember to rinse your dishes and put them in the dishwasher after use, please ask if you cannot figure out how to use the dishwasher. The soap (Cascade) is under the sink. I am happy to instruct you, please ask if at all unsure.
