A perfect home away from home in the East Village!
Beautiful, spacious and quiet East Village apartment with a private rooftop deck. All wood floors, open space, brick walls, surrounded by green in summer.
This is a lovely duplex in the best neighborhood in NYC if you want quiet amidst East Village excitement. There are lots of trees (and birds), great restaurants and markets, theaters, music, proximity to transport of all varieties (including CITIbike), and historic Tompkin Square Park. Three bedrooms, 2 full baths, all amenities, and did we mention the great roof deck.
Near metro L Train (next stop heading east: the too cool hipster Williamsburg) and other transit opportunities (buses, easy cabs, new Citibikes).
Our apartment has the following characteristics:
* Quiet top floor with private roof deck overlooking neighborhood with views of bridges to the Empire State Building and, now World Trade Center #1.
* A park across street - Sauer Park - and trees out all windows
* Calm homey environment
* Owner occupied (4 units) small building
* Cable/wifi, W/D, Dishwasher, AC
* 3 bedrooms, 2 baths
* all wood floors, no carpeting
* working fireplace (for winter)
A recent visitor felt that they were in a small town, not NYC. (But, you are in NYC, just a great respite from your busy day).

I am an economist and educational consultant living in NYC with my husband, who is an investigative journalist working for Thomson-Reuters.
We love to travel when we can. And, we are mostly away on weekends - to Shelter Island - about 100 miles east of Manhattan, so we can rent our place on weekends and for longer stretches in winter and summer.
We've done home exchanges and now enjoy sharing our home with NYC visitors.
