This apartment is the entire 3rd floor of a newly renovated townhouse 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 rental apartment is only used for short-term stays. The 2nd and 3rd floor of the property are identically furnished and have the same floor plan. Each floor has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths. That is 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms when combined!
The apartment has the feel of a luxurious hotel suite comparable to a four star hotel. The furnishings are attractive and comfortable. The bedding is 1st quality, including pillow top mattresses, down comforters, down pillows, and Egyptian cotton sheets. The apartment has one bedroom with a king bed, two bedrooms with a queen bed and one bedroom with a full bed. (please keep in mind that one of the bedrooms is accessed through the master bedroom.)
The living room has a 32 inch plasma screen tv as well as a large tv in the master bedroom. Both tv's have full cable with HBO. The apartment has a secured wireless internet for access with your personal computer. The apartment has central air conditioning.
There is a new and well stocked kitchen in addition to a washer and dryer inside the apartment. We are very family friendly and children are always welcome. We keep a portable crib and high chair in each apartment along with 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 young couple with four kids. Originally both from Utah, We have lived in the city for 15 years. I graduated from Columbia University and used to work for in management consulting. Now I run the rental units and enjoy staying home with my children. My husband works in business development for a software company here in the city.
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 oldest son 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.
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.
