Upper West Side Apartment Rental Photos and Description

On West End Avenue between 76th and 77th street in the heart of the trendy Upper

Apartment 2 is on the main ground floor entrance and 10 feet above street level. It is actually the grand Parlor of the house and is truly a step back in time with the two original ornate fireplaces, original wood carvings and paneling, decorative ceilings and original converted gas light fixtures. This apartment features two super large rooms containing a Day Bed with an additional trundle bed (two singles when separate or one king when closed) and a queen-sized sleeper sofa in the other room. There is television with DVD and VCR plus full cable access with HBO and Cinemax. There is also complete wireless access in this apartment. In addition, a lovely baby grand piano is available for serious and amateur musicians. The apartment is air conditioned and has steam heat provided in the winter.

A small but fully functioning kitchen, with a stove, microwave, refrigerator, ice maker, dish washer, coffee pot, toaster oven, toaster, and mixer, blender, and food processor is a cook's dream, as everything is within arm's reach. There is also a separate standard sized stand up shower and toilet room within the kitchen area.

Comfortable, convenient, quiet, felt like home.

  • 5 of 5
I was in NYC to compete in the NYC Triathlon 8/3/14. Best location ever! One block away from Riverside Park, the event start. Conveniently located within close walking distance of Subway, Broadway, Amsterdam, and Central Park. Comfortable, convenient, quiet, functional, and spacious for two people. Shower/toilet area small, however functional and appropriate. Wi-fi, movie channels, private. Owners live in building and were friendly and easy to work with. I'd stay here again!

A Wonderful Experience All Around

  • 5 of 5
We rented the property for a long weekend, and were not disappointed. We have stayed in rentals and hotels in many countries, and this was one of the best, if not the best - a spacious, comfortable, elegant oasis in the big city. The location was wonderful; the owners are generous, caring and friendly; and the apartment was a lovely place to stay all around.

We cannot recommend this listing enough, and hope to return soon.

Perfect home away from home on the Upper West Side

  • 5 of 5
The listing description is accurate on this well-maintained listing. It is a wonderful, comfortable and lovely home away from home. The owners are gracious hosts and met our every need. I would recommend this property to all my family and friends, as well as to those who would respect and care for this historic gem.

Historic Elegance, Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5
The apartment has an old-world feel as though stepping back into the 1890s and is beautifully maintained. The location is amazing for its proximity to Central Park and the beautiful Riverside Park which we enjoyed tremendously, as well as many museums which we only scratched the surface (Guggenheim, Metropolitan Museum of Art, and of course the Museum of Natural History which is very close by). The subway stop #1 got us everywhere we needed to go in our 5-night stay to tour NYC with our teenagers including everything from visiting NYU and Columbia to broadway plays and restaurants, to the statue of liberty. The kitchen is fully equipped with every appliance and although the counter space is limited, the table worked for prepping just a few steps away. The West End Market right around the corner was perfect for us. We would have loved to stay longer to enjoy the fantastic restaurants, museums, and performances both in the peaceful neighborhood and throughout Manhattan - we felt on the go the entire time. The owner was very hospitable and we enjoyed meeting her at the beginning and end of our stay -- if time had allowed we would have been able to get to know you better and dress up to enjoy an elegant evening in the beautiful parlor. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay in Manhattan!

Victorian Gem in a Dreamy Location!

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have enjoyed immensely staying in this apartment several times over the past year! The owners are wonderful and truly care about your stay. Having stayed in many hotels here and in Europe, we would give them five stars for their kindness and communication! The apartment is located in a dreamy neighborhood in a Landmark building on West End Avenue which is mostly residential and quiet. The apartment has been beautifully maintained by the owners and features the original lighting fixtures; wood and plaster work-gorgeous! We enjoy the very well equipped kitchen as there are an abundance of food shops nearby (i.e. Fairway; Zabars). There are also some fantastic restaurants nearby and plenty of activities (Central and Riverside Parks; Metropolitan Museum; Lincoln Center) within walking distance! We have recommended this apartment to family and friends!

We wanted a place to stay in NY where I can cook (I'm vegan) walk downtown and relax and read should the hibernation bug bite. This apartment was a delight. Just quirky enough to make you feel native NYer yet comfortable and welcoming. It had everything we needed, more in fact than we used! It is large and the living areas are spacious. It was clean and quiet. The kitchen faces a garden, the front rooms look over the street view which was also captivating for people watchers. Close to the hurly burly of Broadway but tucked behind on a quieter residential street. The location was perfect, we're great walkers and we walked everywhere downtown, uptown, thru Central park, museums, shopping, etc We always felt perfectly safe, and we could have happily stayed in the neighborhood for our needs, but isn't NY just so fun to explore? Buses, metro one block over, taxis everywhere. The restaurants are great nearby, behind Broadway, other than breakfast, we stayed off the Broadway strip for eateries, following native NYers, and yes I found a great vegan/vege restaurant nearby! Strongly recommend this apt, we'll be back!
