This is a fantastic apartment. Carole is a friendly, attentive landlord and responds to any queries or concerns quickly. It is a large, comfortable apartment and is well equipped with everything needed for a extended stay. There is a gym and an affordable laundry in the building and the views from the roof-top area are spectacular. The building is well-maintained and the supers are friendly. The East Village locale is a less touristy and more grass roots area of Manhattan, which for me is ideal. I have leased Carole's apartment twice now - both long and short term stays - and would have no hesitation in doing so again.
