About this space

You will enjoy the big, delicious, hearty (organic) vegan breakfast I serve you each morning. The room is quiet, private with the most comfortable bed in the world. Space only available for one person.

The space

My space is lovely, surrounded by gardens, quiet (except for occasional nights in the summer) and right in Manhattan ("the city")with easy access to transportation to all tourist sites. I live in an area which is populated with all nationalities, with a particularly Spanish flavor.

The room is simple, small, quiet, with all that a weary traveler could ever need, including the most comfortable bed in the world. It is located right next to the bathroom.

Guest access: There is internet access (wifi) throughout the apartment; there's a large garden in which i'm a member right up the block (with chickens who are allowed to roam free at different times); two blocks up, there is a long stretch that provides a lovely place (along the river) to jog, walk or sit and meditate. There is a cable tv here and sometimes my guests will sit and watch a movie with me. I play a medley of music during my guest's breakfast as well as throughout the day, if you are here.

The kitchen

This is a purely vegan kitchen, so I do not like ANY animal products in it. Of course since cheese does not grow from the ground, nor eggs dangle off trees, they can't be considered vegetation and those who consume them really can't be called VEGetarians.

I have a large refrigerator, a Vitamix Blender, a Juicer, glass pots, etc. My preference, however, is that people enjoy the rich breakfast I offer, and eat the rest of their meals exploring the food offered in vegan and veg friendly restaurants throughout this city, including not far from here.

Other things to note

I speak several languages - not fluently - but sufficiently to facilitate communication. (French, Spanish and i'm learning German). I studied Russian for three years in college. Also I know some sign language. I am happy to speak in the language of your choice.

I provide a private bedroom with a (lockable) door and a huge, delicious, healthy, organic vegan breakfast for you in the morning (if you desire it). I've been vegan for 45 years (and mostly raw (the last 5 years)). I'm very active in animal rights and vegan outreach and during the day work diligently on conveying in various ways the importance and relevance of these issues. For example, my group ROAR! (Reaching Out for Animal Rights!) (ROAR24.org) distributes t-shirts, tank tops, etc as well as literature; we produce a weekly tv show; and we are working on a full length documentary film (open to input). I have been hosting people on another (non-veg) web platform for the past three years and have received rave reviews. I am friendly, helpful and supportive. Please check with me to make sure the space is available, before you book. (Thanks!) ';-)

Neighbourhood

this area of harlem is called "east harlem or spanish harlem." it is made up of people of many races, mainly latino or spanish from central and south america, with some african americans (who have been here for generations, due to the enslavement of their ancestors) and quite a few caucasians and asians. you will see many "mixed" couples of different races and shades of skin color (white, brown, black, asian). many people own their own apartments or even buildings. you will notice expensive cars, mercedes benz's, bmw's, along with hondas and suv's. the people in my building are mostly spanish...

in general, the people in this neighborhood (and building) are hard working, respectful and family oriented. it's part of the culture. that makes it a very quiet, peaceful and safe neighborhood. you will be very surprised at how quiet it is (to which many of my former guests have attested). (the only possible exception is - very occasionally on the weekends in the summer, music is playing till around midnight.) because this neighborhood is made up of mostly families and some wealthy doctors and lawyers, people come home from work, on the weekdays, eat dinner and spend time with their children.
that also makes it safe to come home at night (after dark) and walk the few blocks from the subway or bus. i have walked my dogs all hours of the evening, 11pm, 12 am, 1 am and feel quite safe. i also see young women walking alone down the streets at different hours of the night and they are all fine. my female airbnb guests have also come home at all hours and felt safe. the safety of the neighborhood was one of the main reasons that i decided to buy my beautiful apartment here.
Getting around: The nearby train will take you to any tourist site you'd like, as I live in Manhattan ("the city") where much of these are located. If the 10 minute walk to the train is too far for you, there is a bus a block away, that will take you right there. Many people prefer the walk.
