About Me

Hi! I'm a Canadian living here and working in midtown as a lawyer. I've been in the city since 2013 except for a year stint in London. I like the usual: hanging out with friends, food (especially rice or noodle dishes), going out, movies, live shows, running, biking, travel, and the like. When I was living in Montreal, I had 5 roommates and shared a single bathroom, so I'm used to being easy going. I care about keeping common areas (which here is just the kitchen) clean and happy, so I wash my dishes typically as I use them, take out trash and recycling my fair share, and split fridge and cabinet space. I'm pretty quiet generally but happy to chat and hang out if I'm not working. (And if I'm working, I'll just pop on headphones, so anything below party noise levels won't bother me.) I also prefer to let my roommates know if someone will be in the space or I expect there to be more noise than usual. It's helpful if you're similar, but I don't get too fussed by some mess or noise.

Bedroom+bathroom+own living room in a 2bed/2bath brownstone apartment

Hi! I'm currently living with a couple, but they're looking to move into their own place. I love the apartment so I'm looking for someone (or a new couple) to sign on when the lease renews April 1. (Move in is possible as early as February 17.) The best short description is two one-bedroom apartments connected by a nice kitchen, but there's a lot of good things, so sorry for the long listing!

Key details:
- BUILDING: The building is a co-op brownstone on a tree-lined, quiet street midway between 2nd and 3rd. An absentee owner has the downstairs unit, then our landlord owns the unit above (when it's not rented, we're allowed to use the back-facing deck), and above that is an unit owned by a lady who's been in the building 50+ years. I know the permanent neighbours and have a good relationship with them. We also have the best stoop on the block, and pets are allowed (there might be a size restriction but I can check with the landlord if it would make a difference to you).

- LOCATION: *Short* (I do it in 7) walking distance to the Union Square 4/5/6/N/Q/R/W/L, or to other stops for those lines. There is a Citibike station on our block and multiple others within one or two blocks. I will happily list the numerous restaurants and bars that are within 2 to 10 minutes walk from the apartment but they cover an extensive range of cuisines--my favourite is a Georgian restaurant and it'll be yours too if you like cheese and bread. There is a Trader Joe's (including Trader Joe's wine store for your cheap wine needs) and Whole Foods next to Union Square (plus the specialty Japanese grocery store two blocks south). We are within a block of an AMC and East Village Cinemas, and there's a Regal on the way to Union Square. Tompkins Square (spacious, pretty park) is a few blocks east and every year has a Halloween dog costume contest where hundreds of dogs descend on the park so you're guaranteed at least one day a year of pure happiness.

- APARTMENT: The apartment is a floor-through of the entire second floor (up one flight of stairs from the ground level), and used to be two apartments. Landlord lives in Ireland (he's lovely) but is pretty responsive. Anything needing someone in the country can just be passed through the upstairs neighbour who handles it for the co-op--she's been responsive and helpful to everything I've needed this year.
- Each side has its own bedroom, bathroom, and living room. The (large) kitchen is shared and connects the two sides.
- Your half is the south/non-street-facing side. That side benefits from more direct sunlight during the day, as well as almost no noise. The back side looks out onto apartment gardens and other buildings, but is nice. Throughout is exposed brick and the apartment was redone relatively recently.
- I made an amateur floorplan which I'm happy to share, and I can snap photos as helpful. (The attached are from the listing when we rented it, showing your bedroom and living room and the kitchen.)

- BEDROOM: The south side has the larger bedroom, which fits a queen bed either direction and I think fits a king lengthwise. Closet is large but you could get a dresser in with a queen bed if you'd like. The room has a wall AC unit and steam radiator.
- BATHROOM: Your bathroom is a standard bathroom with tub shower. The mirror folds out if you want to feel like a movie star but it's otherwise just a bathroom. Bathroom is vented.
- LIVING ROOM: Your living room has a gas-burning fireplace and size-wise can fit multiple couches, coffee table, a dining table, and a desk, without crowding. It also has a wall AC unit and steam radiator.
- KITCHEN: This is shared but can accommodate multiple people cooking at once. Full gas range (which is vented), though the oven is smaller than average. Tons of cabinets, counter space, a spice rack, good size refrigerator and freezer, and a couple frosted windows letting in light during the day. One of the moving roommates cooks extensively. There is also a WASHER/DRYER in the kitchen so laundry is easy.
- ENTRANCEWAY: This and the coat closet is split and leads into the south side living room, but if you really value the space, we can adjust the rent split and you can have it to yourself (I have a side door I can use on my side but would prefer not to). You're welcome to use the built-in desk yourself regardless for work or storage.

RENT: 2650/month.
Utilities are extra, and since last April have averaged $50/person/month. Internet is also extra--I would be replacing a departing roommate's plan so it's up in the air but happy to discuss. As is legally required in NYC, heat and hot water are included in rent.

Lease would begin April 1, but feel free to move in as early as February 17.
