We are: a mostly 2 person household with 1 student away at school, in a spacious 3 bedroom apartment in the coveted, diverse section of the North West Bronx, known as Riverdale.
Surrounded by trees and up the block from the Fieldston Mansions, this is a safe, quiet block. There are only 2 apt buildings on the block, both owned by the same owner who lives in my building.
The building is locked and has video cameras both inside the building as well as outside.
The neighborhood is filled with upscale shops, lots of different restaurants and fresh produce markets, banks galore, hardware stores, a post office, cleaners as well as multiple houses of worship . . . you get the idea. Subway transportation is along the 1 line which is an easy walk down to (although you'll probably want to take the bus back up the hill). There is an Express bus to Manhattan, Metro North a short ride away, as well as local buses located on the nearby corners.
We are a pet household and ours are cats, 4 to be exact, but they are also well behaved. As well, we are a substance free, non-smoking household and request the same in our roommate. If you are of age, wine and spirits are fine.
There is cable in the living room, internet/wi-fi (if you have a laptop) and unlimited US calls that are all included in the rent as is the electricity (within reason).
This homestay is perfect for any student (Grad or Under Grad). We are conveniently located close to both Manhattan College (down the hill) & Mt. St. Vincent College a short bus ride away.
Both rooms are bright with lots of sun, furnished with a bed, cabinets and a dresser with a generous closet that has its own shelving. There are thermal drapes on the windows that keep the warmth in during winter and the heat out during summer.
We will provide meals for an additional charge that can be tailored to your needs and can be discussed at length during the booking phase.
