Hi, my name is Tom. I’m in a great apartment in East Harlem, and would love to hear from you if you’re interested:
– 3 BR / 1 BA, railroad layout (i.e. no bedrooms sharing walls, good privacy)
– Washer, dryer, & dishwasher !!
– Renovated 3 years ago, 3rd floor of 5-story walk-up
– Next door to a park, so TONS of natural light & every window with a view of trees, playground, and basketball courts
– many tenants are family relatives so most everyone in the building knows each other (i.e. packages never stolen, grandmotherly ladies welcoming you on front steps!)
+ 3 min to subway 6 (the 4 is two stops away)
+ 12 min to Q line
+ 8 min to Mt. Sinai Hospital
+ 8 min to Central Park
+ 10 min to East River Walk/Randall’s Island
+ 3 min to two grocery stores
Rent would be $1,150 + ~$50 utilities/electric (heat and water included).
Lease would start Sept 1.
I really liked the community my roommates and I formed, where we would often share meals/cooking (2-3 times a week) and linger in conversation, without the expectation or pressure to do so. I’d like to find roommates with a similar vision of communal living, who speak their minds when tensions arise, and who are clean and respectful.
Since one roommate had to leave suddenly due to a family emergency, and the other is looking at graduate housing, I’m looking to fill two rooms. I strongly prefer guys but I’ve lived in coed housing before for three years and it can work if the respect, privacy, and right personalities are there. If the apartment sounds good but you’re concerned about coed living, I’d be happy to connect you with my current female roommate who would give you her honest experience of living with me this past year.
I’m a middle school teacher who loves deep conversations, basketball, dabbling on mandolin, and exploring the city. I’m also a decent cook. No drugs, no drama, and authentically interested in people.
If you think this might be a good fit for you, send me a message and we can connect soon.
Have a great day! – Tom
