Room is available on April 1st (can be flexible) until end of September, with the possibility of renewing the lease. This is a name change on the lease, so you need to have all the necessary documents for that.
The apartment is a converted 2-bedroom in Hell's Kitchen, with huge windows in every single room (even kitchen and bathroom!). The room is big (10'11'' x 12'7''), has floor to ceiling windows, huge closet space, and amazing views of the midtown skyline as well as the Hudson river to the left, along with the pier where cruise ships stop. Included here are some pictures of the building, room and the views, as well as the floor plan for the apartment.
The rent is $1460 for the room right now, and the gym membership is only $25 a month. There is a second bedroom available for $1255 if that price range works better, you can switch rooms with my roommate.
The building is called New Gotham, it is a modern luxury building with full amenities by the Hudson River (on 43rd str between 10th and 11th Ave). You can see the location here: http://bit.ly/x4D98N. The building has concierge and doorman service, laundry, valet service, a full gym with a half basketball court, sauna, bike storage, complimentary pilates class every Thursday, a separate roofdeck with chairs for laying out in the sun in the summer, children's playroom and tables for having guests over.
