The apartment is located downtown Manhattan, this renovated artist loft offers over 2,000 sq ft of chic living. Steps from Battery Park, Wall St, the Seaport, Tribeca and all major subways. The space offers a unique opportunity to live out your NYC dream vacation.

The space
This is a true artist loft with 10 ft high ceilings and views of the East River, it is rustic and quaint. It is different as it does not have traditional doors, windows, etc which you would get in a modern building, but it is truly an experience. The room is large, private with a lush queen sized bed, large closet, computer, and dresser drawers.

This building was erected in the 1800’s and at the time, the neighborhood was a shipyard filled with large docks. It was used mainly as a warehouse for rare spices imported from all over the world. If you visit the South Street Seaport Museum, which is just down the street, you can watch a twenty-minute movie about the transformation of this area. It’s incredible how much it has changed.

THE ART

I moved into the neighborhood in 2001, and painted all of the works you see around the apartment right in the kitchen. You will still find me in the afternoons using the space as a workshop when guests are out on the town and I respectfully clean up the space everyday.

Most notably my work was shown at the Art Directors Club Gallery on West 29th St. The Art Directors Club put on a fantastic show and I have since designed, edited and published 4 of their volumes. I’m proud to say, I actually won several awards. These books are also in the apartment, and if you love art, feel free to take a look as they contain many of the up and coming stars in the field. One of my favorite places that featured my work was Dylan’s Candy Bar on the Upper East Side. I highly suggest a visit if you love candy!

All of the art in the apartment is inspired by my travels. I worked as a photographer for the Hawaiian Airlines in-flight magazine and traveled extensively. Many of the paintings are from my time in Taiwan, and yearlong trek in the South Pacific where I focused on the study of Japanese culture.

This is also why I am happy to open my space to Airbnb. I love to think that many of you will be inspired by your travels as well! The apartment is located across from a quaint park, the space is adjacent to bustling Stone Street and trendy Dead Rabbit Bar & Restaurant.

Where you’ll be

New York, United States

The neighborhood is reminiscent of old-school Europe. In the early 1800s the area was a major port, and this building was used to be a warehouse for the storage of spices. All around there are cafes, pubs, and restaurants that line cobble stone streets, and the nearby park offers a refuge from the concrete jungle life. While there is a lot going on, the apartment is quiet, which is unusual for NYC.

I’m an artist who’s lived in NYC for 20 years I’ve spent several years working in advertising and design and had a few years working on big broadway shows. I have had many fun and interesting experiences in New York. I enjoy learning about culture, I'm deeply inspired by Asia (as you can tell by my paintings) and am well traveled having been to over 30 countries. I spent a year living in Hawaii, several months in Taiwan, 6 months studying in Paris, and I use to work for a school based out of Sweden and have spent a great deal of time there as well. I love the world and I enjoy getting to know new parts through the people I share my home with. I usually try to do a 5k run every day. I'm active and love NYC and the waterfront. I spend most of my free time just running, walking, or playing in the river parks by my house.

During your stay

I usually make a pot of coffee, and doing my morning routine, gym, run, mediate. I am friendly, gay and well traveled. I love learning about other cultures and experiencing life through my guests. Sometimes I work from home or in nearby coffee shops in the afternoon, generally it's pretty quite here though. Nights the TV is usually on or I'm in my bedroom watching the news. Feel free to come and go as you please!
