Stay in Lucas's Unique one of a kind Artist Lost in NYC. The apartment is located downtown Manhattan, this renovated artist loft offers over 2,000 sq ft of chic living. Steps from Battery Park, Wall St, the Seaport, Tribeca and all major subways. The space offers a unique opportunity to live out your NYC dream vacation.
This is a true artist loft with 10 ft high ceilings and views of the East River, it is rustic and quaint. It is different as it does not have traditional doors, windows, etc which you would get in a modern building, but it is truly an experience. The room is large, private with a lush queen sized bed, large closet, computer, and dresser drawers.
This building was erected in the 1800’s and at the time, the neighborhood was a shipyard filled with large docks. It was used mainly as a warehouse for rare spices imported from all over the world. If you visit the South Street Seaport Museum, which is just down the street, you can watch a twenty-minute movie about the transformation of this area. It’s incredible how much it has changed.
South Street Seaport Museum – Where New York Begins @ 12 Fulton St. or ask Alexa where more of the best museums are in the city!
I moved into the neighborhood in 2001, and painted all of the works you see around the apartment right in the kitchen. You will still find me in the afternoons using the space as a workshop when guests are out on the town and I respectfully clean up the space everyday.
Most notably my work was shown at the Art Directors Club Gallery on West 29th St. The Art Directors Club put on a fantastic show and I have since designed, edited and published 4 of their volumes. I’m proud to say, I actually won several awards. These books are also in the apartment, and if you love art, feel free to take a look as they contain many of the up and coming stars in the field. One of my favorite places that featured my work was Dylan’s Candy Bar on the Upper East Side. I highly suggest a visit if you love candy!
All of the art in the apartment is inspired by my travels. I worked as a photographer for the Hawaiian Airlines in-flight magazine and traveled extensively. Many of the paintings are from my time in Taiwan, and yearlong trek in the South Pacific where I focused on the study of Japanese culture.
This is also why I am happy to open my space to Airbnb. I love to think that many of you will be inspired by your travels as well! The apartment is located across from a quaint park, the space is adjacent to bustling Stone Street and trendy Dead Rabbit Bar & Restaurant.
The whole apartment is accessible to guests. There is a full kitchen with enough space to make family meals and the living room offers a sanctuary to spread out in.
During this time please be aware I work from home. I use the front office and will try to keep my zoom meetings after 10am. Thanks!
Other things to note
Please respect that this is my home, and I work and live here full-time. You are more than welcome to come in late and make unexpected noise. But if we could all be quiet without a lot of talking after 11pm, it is apprecaited.
If you are in bed early I can also watch TV in my room with my headphones, I do not mind.
Also on most Friday nights my boyfriend spends the night. We either goto a late dinner or a movie, and then he generally leaves by noon on Saturday mornings.
If there is loud music upstairs after 11, let me know I’ll tell the neighbors to be quiet.
Please know if you cancel 30-days in advance I can refund you. But after that it is to hard to rebook others last minute, and the policy with Air’bnb is 50% refund.
