Ah, the Upper East Side!
From the edge of Central Park at 59th Street to the top of Museum Mile at El Museo del Barrio at 105th Street, this is New York City's Gold Coast. The neighborhood air is perfumed with the scent of old money and glamorous sophistication, with Champagne corks popping and high society puttin' on the Ritz. With its world-famous museums, elite schools, luxury boutiques, and proximity to Central Park, the family-oriented Upper East Side is home to some of the city's richest residents.
We have decided to rent our Upper East Side Townhouse.
Our spectacular four-bedroom triplex apartment is now available for rent by the week or by the month. Let me describe it to you:
When first you enter the enormous living room, you will be dazzled by the Italian fresco on the high ceiling (an homage to Grand Central Station’s restoration) framing a huge antique Venetian chandelier. In the center of the living room stands a working Vermont-marble fireplace with a French Empire mirror hanging over the mantle. Look out the window and view the 1000+ square foot, multi-level private garden with 5 person hot-tub spa.
Relax on the new celadon sofa or the matching loveseat with built in his & hers recliners, while listening to Mozart on the stereo or watching the evening news (or World Series?) on the 50” Panasonic Plasma TV set. (There are also handy DVD and separate VHS players). Not enough room for your company to sit? Well, there is also an Art Deco sofa between the 8 foot high windows.
Our open kitchen looks out over our dining room, large enough for sit-down dinners for 10 or more. The art deco Heywood Wakefield dining set beautifully complements the new hardwood floors. And there is a wood-burning fireplace in the dining room, too!
The primary master bedroom overlooks the garden and has a private entrance to the garden via the spa room. This bedroom has a 25 foot wall of built in closets and dresser in addition to the lovely new bleached wood furnishings and original wrought iron bed.
The second master bedroom is off the living room and shares its 15 foot ceiling height. This bedroom has an enormous 8 foot by 4 foot sunny window facing south, and boasts a Venetian chandelier and a Vermont marble fireplace.
In addition to this, there is a third child’s room together with a separate family/playroom/4th bedroom in the finished basement level, with a door and window to the garden.
And, of course, there is a separate private laundry room for your exclusive use.
We have a similar luxurious four bedroom apartment also available, as well as a more modest one bedroom apartment. We urge you to ask for futher information.

I am a retired RN and my husband is a retired banker. We decided to raise our kids in the 'big city' so that we could give them all the cultural and social benefits that a giant metropolis like New York has to offer.
We selected this property because it is in a great public school district and is only a short walk to the hospital where I worked for many years. My husband commuted by subway in the morning, but always walked home from Grand Central Station every day.
Our house is in Yorkville, a neighborhood originally settled by German immigrants. We still have several good German restaurants and bakeries to add to the hundreds of other restaurants as well. The neighborhood is so nice that the city maintains a private mansion for the Mayor just two blocks away. Be sure to visit his house, Gracie Mansion, when you come on your next visit.
