About Tom Watkins

I am working for an NGO that requires I spend time in Geneva, so am often out of New York.

Tom Watkins purchased this apartment in 1982

Why Tom Watkins chose Midtown South

Because it is in a great location from which the city's attractions are easily accessible -- steps off FifthAvenue between Flatiron, just to the south; Murray Hill, a block to the east; and Midtown, whose southern tip begins four blocks to the north. It's in the center of the Persian rug district, two blocks south of Korea Town and four blocks north of Madison Square Park.

What makes this apartment unique

A clean, quiet, calm, orderly and safe place of refuge that is within walking distance of many of New York's attractions.

Perfect Location

  • 4 of 5

Tom was awesome and responded very quickly to all my questions. The property is located right in the middle of garment district and near everything (time square, Madison square garden and all the sub/train stations). The place was cozy and has everything u need for a stay away from home!!! Whenever I plan to come to NY, I will be sure to check the availability here first.

It was a pleasure to stay at Tom's property again. The studio is very clean and comfortable. Location is absolutely perfect for exploring Manhattan. Looking forward to booking it again next time I am in NYC.

wonderful stay in a wonderful place!

  • 5 of 5

This was my second time staying in one of Tom's properties and this go round was as good as the first i.e., wonderful! I love this place - the bed is so comfy and the apartment is cozy and a great place to return to at the end of a busy day! The location is super. I highly recommend staying here if you are in New York and want to feel like a New Yorker. Tom is very responsive so anything you need, he is on it quickly. There are some stairs, but I am 60 and had no trouble!

Map

Walk to the lights of Times Square, the clubs of Greenwich Village, the restaurants of the Flatiron District, the galleries of Chelsea. Doubtless the best location you could find to have access to all that New York has to offer.
