This apartment was fantastic for our one week Manhattan stay and we hope it will available when we return. Let me explain why. We were seven and did not want to waste any time commuting on and off the island. Three spacious bedrooms (very large by Manhattan standards—believe me) accommodated six of us while a seventh slept in the common area. And in a hundred year old row house (like Sherlock Holmes’ in the Elementary TV series but renovated inside). A very good grocery store is a five minute walk and a 24-hour pharmacy only 4 minutes away. The 116th subway station (dingy but safe) is minutes away and can whisk you directly to mid-down (say Central Park, Times Square and Broadway, Macy’s, downtown). Feel like something more scenic, walk one half-block west and take a bus down the Upper West side (say to go to the Natural History Museum or Strawberry Fields). If you walk one half-block east, take a bus that brings you down Fifth Avenue through the Museum Mile. Feel like walking only, visit Saint John the Devine Cathedral—only ten to fifteen minutes away. Our only issue was that the big rooms were a bit chilly in the unusually cold 2014 winter. But to make everything work like a charm, there’s Victoria who lives downstairs and is both pleasant and accommodating. Best regards, Alan of Montreal.
