Welcome to the " James Dean" experience.

In this loft you ןis surrounded by paintings and urban rawness - an interesting eclectic combination.
A perfect place to for a respite before and after your long day in the greatest city in the world.

750SF / 90m2 open space with 11ft ceilings.

Full Kitchen, bathroom w/ a shower, concrete floors, AC.
My mother occupies this loft. She is a painter. she works and lives in this space. Its very cozy and has a lot of character.

Building: is a 5 stories building. There is a regular elevator plus a freight elevator. Washer and dryer room is on premise.
Access to building roof top on the 6th floor.

Location: Loft is located technically in S.Bronx (Mott Haven) which is 5 minutes away from East Harlem. Many are not familiar yet with this amazing and up and coming neighborhood. This is Williamsburg 10 years ago. But still hidden form the main stream eye.
4 other commercial loft buildings around who are occupied by artist and creative people alike.

Neighborhood: Very industrial commercial feel to it. Inspiring to any creative person. Especially for photographers. Lots of locations to shoot. Are is very safe and quiet.
3 minute walk to 138th St. where there are many stores, and grocery stores.
2 major huge grocery stores are close by.
If you have a car there is always a parking spot. Very convenient.
The area is mainly commercial so after 5pm it pretty much barren and quiet. Very safe.
Down the block there is a wonderful sushi restaurant (Ceetay) owned by one of my friends and a neighbor. Cool place to hang out. They have good food in affordable prices.

Commute: Building is 7 minute walk to the 4,5 express trains. 5 minute walk to the 6 train.
10 minutes to midtown Manhattan. 20 min to union sq.
Also the 3rd avenue bridge is right next to the building . Walking to east 125th St. is 10min walk.

It depends on the guest. Usually every few days or so if they don't interact with me. :)
I contact them every now and then to make sure they are having a great time and to see if they need anything else to make their time as pleasant as possible.

It's dynamics. It's still gentrified, has character. It's a walking distance to Randall's island park which has bike and jogging lanes all across.
It's walking distance from Harlem - the jazz mecca of manhattan. It has 3 great restaurant and bars around the block. It's fairly quiet and safe.

Very convenient. 3 major subway lines and a bus right across the street to manhattan.

    Very accomodating with arrival and departure times but as we had no issues with the apartment we had very little need for contact.

The apartment is in rough condition, has no good ventilation, smells old. The building is pretty sketchy, you'll be greeted by meth-heads and scary people.
