Your private walled garden is perfect retreat for relaxing with a glass of wine or cup of coffee.
When you enter your apartment you'll find the romance and charm of exposed brick walls, wide plank floors, and original art.
A cushioned single Bahama bed is convenient for another guest and 2 of the chairs fold out into single beds.
A quaint 150 year old opaque glass wall separates the living room and bedroom. Pamper yourself with an excellent night's sleep and wake refreshed in the queen size bed with quality linens, a fluffy feather duvet and lots of extra pillows. There's plenty of room for all of your clothes and shopping sprees in a wall of custom fitted closets. The en suite marble tiled bathroom has a small tub with shower and a glass vanity and sink.
A rare find in New York is the separate and full eat-in kitchen with large double door refrigerator/freezer with automatic ice maker, full stove with oven and full size dishwasher. The kitchen is nicely equipped with microwave, coffee pot, pots and pans, dishes, glassware, champagne glasses, martini glasses, ice bucket and flatware....just what you need for the real New York lifestyle.
The dining area with window seat overlooks the peaceful private garden.
If you don't feel like cooking, just order in from the many near by restaurants or have the grocery stores deliver.
An adjacent 2-room 1/2 bath duplex suite is available for large families. The small downstairs room is furnished as an office/library and has a queen size sofa bed. Private interior stairs lead to a large upstairs bedroom with 2 twin size beds which can be made up into a king size bed if you prefer. A 1/2 bath is off of this room.
There are 5 rather shallow steps into the building making it unsuitable for very young children and guests who might have a problem with stairs.
The apartment is one of three units in a private 4 story townhouse. It is on the garden floor in the back and is exceptionally quiet, clean, safe and secure. You'll find many extra modern details such as high hat lights in all of the rooms, a security buzzer to open the front doors and quality windows and doors.
It is said that the famous dancer Isadora Duncan once lived here.
We haven't been able to confirm this, but like to believe that it is true. We hope that you will spend some time here, too.

Travel is my passion and I love to meet new people. My main home is in Florida, but I come to NYC as often as possible. It is rewarding to share my knowledge of insider places with my guests. I wrote a book for my guests, 'How to Live Like a Real New Yorker in our Neighborhood'. It gives suggestions about where to eat in all price ranges, museums, attractions, grocery shopping, luxury shopping, discount shopping, how to take the bus and subway, how to find your way around the city and lots more.
I also write a blog about NYC with posts about restaurants, attractions, How to get Theater tickets and other Tips for Travelers. Just 'like' me on facebook to read it: facebook.com/VacationRentalsInNYC or if you are not on facebook, please e-mail me for the link. You don't have to stay here to read it.
I hope that I can inspire you to love NYC as as much as I do.
You can't find a better Center City Location convenient to all that New York City has to offer. My husband want to see trees and he did not want to look out the windows into the neighbors' windows. I wanted to open my door and have New York City at my feet.
It is rare to have a large garden and huge trees in the center of Manhattan. Look in one direction and you might think you were in the country. Look another direction and you see skyscrapers. It is only 2 blocks from the subway and 1/2 block from 2 bus lines.....a quick walk but not close enough for the noise.
