The brand new construction is in reference to this unit being completely updated prior to Chanchal's arrival. A brand new bathroom, new kitchen, and newly sanded 100 year old oak flooring, with original 100 year old architectural features (all updated and to code of course). I'm not sure but I think Chanchal was saying the room is very quiet, as it's in the back of the apartment building, with the exception being the rare noise from the fire station when there is a RARE emergency in the neighborhood that requires the bells to be rung. Most of the time, the firehouse is jam packed full of volunteers and there's no need to ring the bell as most volunteers respond via texts and phone calls and meet at the location of the fire (which is again quite rare in this neighborhood because the building inspectors of Mineola are quite strict - which is a good thing) As far as me being a humber host, thanks Chanchal. I'm sorry that my sister-in-laws passing coincided with your visit and my own personal grief made me not able to get some of the items you requested to you right away. Next time, I hope to earn the 5 star review, and I pride myself on the services that I provide each guest. I'm glad you came to stay for a second visit, and I hope to host you again soon. Thanks.
