This is a large shared studio (1 room). You will of course have your own bed and full access to the apartment, kitchen, etc. I go to work from 8am - 7pm, so you will have the apartment to yourself. I love to recommend new places to eat, go out, and explore. Irving Place is a local neighborhood close to Union Square with tons of interesting restaurants / bars. It is away from heavy midtown tourist crowds, so you will get a real taste for what it feels like to be a New Yorker.
