“All my friends want to go in on a Hamptons rental this summer but I can’t afford it. Wait, I’ll post my apartment!” are sentences we’ve heard approximately 7,000 times. Before you do, take heed.
We’ve copiloted tons of hosts. We get feedback all the time from guests on their experience in New York. We’ve hosted ourselves. We know things. We’ve seen things. Good things. Bad things. Weird things.
If youse guys — sorry, you — want to be an host more than once, these are seven things you need to know:
Big news: WE MOVED. Moving’s the most fun ever, right?
The City Copilots have relocated a whopping one block from our old place on Orchard Street to
a new location: 166 Allen Street. That’s right, we’re still your trusted neighborhood front desk in New York City with key exchange, luggage storage, and accepting package deliveries, and we’re still loyal Lower East Siders.

We are closing in on the end of the year. It’s a time for reflection on 2014 and planning for 2015. It’s a time for family and friends to celebrate, commiserate and contemplate. That being said, City CoPilot likes to keep it light, so we are going to stick to celebrate.
- NYC really IS a small town: New York can be a nice and safe place – further the Lower East Side is a true community – we have connected with more neighbors in the last three months at our storefront than we have the last 6 years living on Orchard street (and we go out a lot..so that’s saying A LOT)
- Travel light: Baggage / Luggage weighs you down – when traveling through life or just a busy city it is best to do it hands free. It doesn’t matter if it is a soul crushing job or a bad relationship – we are taking a nod from one of our favorite girl power movies of the year Frozen.. to just “Let it go” – especially since it is almost January you don’t need all of that stuff – Store your bags and bikes with us!
- Sharing is caring: Whether it is a handcart, drill or your own apartment; sharing stuff makes less clutter, saves money and connects people – so we are all for facilitating the Sharing Economy.
- Nothing can replace people: Yes, people make mistakes and have bad days… But we would all get lonely (and mislead) if we only picked up our packages from Amazon lockers or got directions only from Google maps. It wouldn’t just be a lonely planet but sterile and impersonal.
