Overview

Upper West Side Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

This is a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment (1,000 sq. ft.) in a modest pre-war building on the Upper West Side in Manhattan (a wonderful, convenient, safe, desirable neighborhood). Custom design, oak floors and oak paneling. Sunny, with three exposures (West, South, East). -- And 13 windows!

There is a separate eat-in kitchen (can seat 6 at the dining table) and a washer and dryer. There is a queen bed in the master bedroom, a queen bed in the second room, plus a pull-out queen sofa bed in the living room, so the apartment can sleep 6. There is a central bath with tub/shower. There is also a private master bath with a shower.

Our family has lovingly renovated this apartment to make it a unique and cozy atmosphere rather than something generic. It is fully stocked with cooking supplies and condiments/spices in the kitchen and plenty of linens for bath and bedrooms. Includes wireless internet (wifi) & two cable TVs. There is a small amount of closet space for hanging clothes, plus 13 large-sized empty dresser drawers so you can unpack. There is no elevator so one flight of stairs to walk up to this second-floor apartment.

We do not accept pets for rentals at this time. A poodle has been in the apartment but does not shed and there will be no sign of her. The New York Times is delivered daily, so you will not need to leave home to enjoy the newspaper at breakfast every morning!

About Elizabeth

We have lived in New York for many years and the city still thrills us. We are happy to share our favorite city with others and can make suggestions for outings or activities that might suit your interests.

Elizabeth purchased this apartment in 1991

Why Elizabeth chose Upper West Side

We wanted to raise our children in a real neighborhood within Manhattan, and we found the Upper West Side to be the perfect combination of a residential environment with parks and local stores and also accessibility to the excitement of the city.

What makes this apartment unique

We enjoy having two full bathrooms and a washer/dryer in the apartment. And we have a separate eat-in kitchen large enough to sit 6 (or 8 with the table extension) at the table. There is custom woodworking that makes the apartment more warm and 'homey' than most city apartments. Also, both local and express subways stop at our local station, so you can get anywhere in the city very quickly. And as a special bonus: Free daily delivery of the New York Times! These benefits give a certain ease and convenience to staying here.

No Work New York.

  • 5 of 5

Subway station (local + express) two blocks away. Uber at your doorstep in 2-3 minutes. Riverside park out the front door and left x 100 paces. Easiest New York visit ever (particularly if you love Lincoln Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Broadway, and the museums. Well appointed apartment (unless you need a lot of closet space --most of it is taken). The steam heat rattles a lot but is actually rather charming, and efficient. Gracious hostess. Surrounded by Emily Dickenson School, but the kids are a delightful study, not an annoyance. Starbucks and McDonalds close by for sophisticates like me.

Just great!

  • 5 of 5

We (family of 4, 2 teenagers) stayed at the apartment at the end of our 3-week-roundtrip through several states for 5 nights and it was sure a good finish for our trip. The apartment was so comfortable that we just felt like home. It was spacious and clean. Having aircondition in each room was just wonderful, because it was so hot during the first days. The location is very good, close to the subway and many restaurants and shops.

And, last not least, Liz and Greg are such friendly and helpful hosts!

We had a great time in New York City and would highly recommend the apartment.

Upper West Side perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We visited NY with 3 big boys (21, 19 and 15) in early July. The apartment was clean with well-equipped kitchen, and a basket of information of attractions, maps, etc.. The best is the location - 2 blocks to Metro 1,2,3, lines and very nice walk across Central Park to the museums. The price is also good compared to other rental properties. The owner Liz was very helpful and flexible for us to leave the luggage in the apartment after we checked out. We had such a good time in NY and the stay was part of it. We will definitely come back. Thank you, Liz.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this rental! We stayed here for 10 days and felt so at home and comfortable. We wanted to be close to Columbia University but still have easy access to the rest of the city and having the express at 96th was wonderful. It so easy to get to the subway and there were plenty of markets and restaurants nearby. It was clean, bright, and had everything you could possibly need.

Liz was the MOST gracious hostess and supplied us with bagels and coffee after our long flight. What a nice touch! She made us feel welcome and arranged her schedule to suit our arrival and departure. She was very easy to deal with and always responded to any questions right away.

The apartment seemed much bigger than it looks in the pictures. The living room is large with lots of windows and two full sized sofas, one was a sofa bed. The bed in the master bedroom is super comfy. Two bathrooms is such a plus and both were nice and clean. Four of us stayed here for the 10 days and felt as though we had plenty of room to all hang out together or have some private space, if needed.

We had dinner guests and cooking was easy with the well stocked kitchen. We will stay here again whenever we get the chance. Thank you so much, Liz!

we recommend this rental

  • 4 of 5

property owner was thoughtful and welcoming and checked in a couple of times during our stay to make sure all was satisfactory. Apartment was comfortable and spacious by NY standards with plenty of room for our family to hang out together in living room and dining room areas. Good sized kitchen with all necessities. Very convenient to subway for getting around the city. And right next to Riverside Park which is lovely. We hope to stay here again sometime.

Fantastic and affordable accommodation in NYC

  • 5 of 5

Thanks Liz and family for the excellent hospitality we received at your apartment. It was clean, comfortable and most importantly very central with a short walk to the subway. We would definitely come back and recommend it to anyone looking for a home away from home in NYC. The bed layout worked well for the five of us and we were especially impressed with Liz taking the time to meet us very late at night to let us in and show us around the apartment. A+!
