Live like a New Yorker, steps away from the subway with all modern amenities. Like having your own home in New York, fully private and with a separate entrance. You’ll have a large bedroom, living room with convertible couch, fully equipped dine-in kitchen, and bath, on the 6th floor of a prewar elevator building with doorman.
In the immediate neighborhood you’ll find dozens of restaurants and cafes, the 24/7 West Side Market right on the corner, and the quiet sanctuary of the nearby Cathedral gardens and their strolling peacocks. You’ll be a five minute walk from Columbia University and Riverside Park, and a ten minute walk from Central Park. With two subway lines and five bus lines at your doorstep, this is an ideal home base for exploring New York City—and a luxurious refuge.
You’ll enjoy the beautiful features of a prewar New York apartment—high ceilings, thick walls, plaster and tile ornamentation—with newly updated amenities. All rooms are flooded with natural light, and have ceiling fans and air conditioning. A corridor connects the rooms, allowing for space and privacy. Wifi and TVs provided, air conditioning and ceiling fans throughout.
The spacious bedroom, with double exposures, is fully furnished with a brand-new queen bed and pillow-top mattress, Cable/Roku TV, writing desk, and ample storage in closet and bureau.
The windowed living room down the corridor includes a comfortable sectional couch and a Cable TV. The couch converts to a queen bed, and we offer a mattress topper for those who prefer a softer sleep.
The windowed kitchen includes all brand new appliances including dishwasher, microwave, electric cooktop, and table-top oven. A dining table comfortably seats four. You’ll find plenty of cookware and dishes, an electric kettle, teapot and French press, along with an iron and ironing board in the pantry.
The bathroom has a huge soaking bathtub and shower, a beautiful marble vanity with antique base, honeycomb tiling, and plenty of storage space.
We supply toiletries, high grade linens for the bed and bath, duvets and pillows. Terry cloth robes too.
Public transportation: With the #1 subway line steps away and the B/C subway a short walk away, the City that Never Sleeps is at your doorstep all day and night. You’ll be at Lincoln Center in 15 minutes, Times Square in 20 minutes, and downtown Brooklyn in 40 minutes. The M4 bus on the corner takes you to Metropolitan Museum of Art and the other museums on Fifth Avenue’s Museum Mile in half an hour (or you can take a leisurely walk through Central Park). Other bus lines nearby include the M104 “Broadway Bus” for exploring the Upper West Side, and the M60 bus to LaGuardia Airport.
New York City prohibits short term rentals of most apartments. You will be staying as our guests in fully private, separate entrance space within our apartment.
