During renovation I decided to keep the original (extremely comfortable) bathtub in the kitchen, so you will be living like the original immigrants lived, taking relaxing baths. The building was built in 1900 for the immigrants.
A very short walk to SoHo, Chinatown, Lower East Side, and you are in Little Italy. Subways in a few blocks including the B,D,F,V to Broadway-Lafayette | 6 to Spring St. | J,M to Bowery. It is very easy to get uptown and to Brooklyn. You can walk over the Manhattan or Brooklyn Bridge too, just about 1/2 an hour walk away.

About the neighborhood...
Elizabeth Street is in the NoLita (North of Little Italy) area, and has plenty of unique shopping, restaurants nice bars. My favorite restaurants include Cafe Gitane (hangout for models, artists, and great food and excellent coffee), Cafe Habana, just feet away from our front door, and Butchers Daughter.
The original St. Patricks Church is right across from Cafe Gitane. (Featured in the film Gangs of New York by Martin Scorsese). Try to see this film before arriving - you will recognize some of the buildings! There is also the Tenement Museum close by. It focuses on America's urban immigrant history, and is a wild look into how people lived and worked in New York in the turn of the century. Yes, they also had a bathtub in the kitchen.
About me: In college I was a bicycle messenger so I know the city very well. Now I am a New York artist working with glass. I might have a couple of pieces of my stained glass art in the apartment. I have lived in New York since the 1980's so ask me any questions you like.
I am an artist and educator working with glass. I have lived in New York City since the mid 1980s!
Any questions just let me know : )
