This apartment is located in the heart of the Upper East Side (East 80's). This historic, 1890’s brownstone is just five blocks straight East from the Metropolitan Art Museum and Central Park. It is very centrally located to transportation, museums, shops and cafes. It is a very charming block with mostly row-houses. If you ever saw the movie 'You've Got Mail' with Meg Ryan...this is about as close as it gets.
It recently underwent a mulit-million dollar renovation and now houses three apartments (two are short-term) and one is the owner’s duplex. The property is only used for short-term stays and both the 2nd and 3rd floor of the property have the same floor plan. Each floor has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. This is 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms when combined! Please view our other listing #138897 as well.

There kitchen is new and stocked. We are family friendly and children are always welcome. There is a portable crib, high chair and a basket of toys. We can NOT accommodate pets and NO smoking in the apartment. There is a fair amount of street parking for cars and a reasonable priced garage on the block. There are several gourmet food markets in the area and even a full sized grocery store just around the corner.
We are a couple with four kids. Both orginally both from Utah, met here in New York on a blind date. That was 15 years ago. I graduated from Columbia University and worked at a large consulting firm. Now I run the rental units and enjoy staying home with my children.

Prior to buying our building, we lived in four neighborhoods with in NYC. There is a reason why most long term residents of NYC eventually migrate to the Upper East Side. It is similar to Hyde Park in London. The Upper East Side is consistently manicured with clean sidewalks, flower boxes and splendid street cafes and boutique shops. In fact, it is such a nice neighborhood we send our kids to the public elementary school.
The real draw for the Upper East Side is Central Park. We are located a five minute walk to some on the prettiest areas of the park. Don't take just our word about the location.... Madonna just bought a $40 million house four blocks away.
This will be a completely different experience than staying at a midtown hotel. While only a five minute cab or subway from Grand Central Station, this location is far less bohemian and noisy. You will hear birds out the window, see squirrels in the trees and have people greet you as you walk down the street. The city gets overwhelming if you are running around seeing tourist sites. Our guests all comment how nice it is to come back to a peaceful setting. I guarantee after three days you will consider yourself a New Yorker.
