I had the pleasure of staying with Laura this past summer (11). The location was perfect for my two internships in the city and is extremely accessible by train. The neighborhood is really residential and has everything you would need.
Laura is an extremely gracious hostess who helped my adjustment to New York tremendously. This is a perfect spot for a low maintenance tenant. The room is cozy with a large bed and a desk area that was great for studying for my GREs. Plenty of drawers and shelves to store your things. I would highly recommend this room.
