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 Manhattan

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.

Fantastic apartment, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough good things about our stay at this homeaway rental. The location cannot be beat for the price we paid! The apartment was very clean, the bed was super comfy, everything was just as pictured. Yes, there was noise at the construction site, but we had no problems getting a good night's sleep every night. Tom was very responsive when we called with issues getting into the apartment. The only thing that could be improved, is to make sure there is a set of keys in the key box for people dropping off luggage. I highly, highly recommend staying here and should we every come back to NYC overnight, we would love to stay here again!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as described and the location was great. Lots of space for an apartment in this part of town. Tom provided all kinds of helpful information and was available for questions. Perfect for an event at MSG or a business trip. The four flights of stairs weren't that bad. Thanks Tom!!

Great apartment in the perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

My kids and I loved staying here. It was clean, comfortable and I think helped give the true New York experience compared to a hotel. Host was very friendly and helpful in responding to questions.

Clean, convenient, cool

  • 5 of 5

Tom's place was great, perfect for a family of 3 (2 adults + 1 teen), located in great district and close to many amenities.

The four floors up would be rough on older legs after a day out walking the city, we found no issues though.

Given the very hot weather experienced when we were there, thoroughly enjoyed coming home to nice cool apartment.

Yes was some construction going on around area, however we were able to sleep in each day til 10am after late nights out exploring.

The blow up Aerobed supplied for our 6ft 1 child was very comfortable and easy to use.

Tom made the checking in and out experience a breeze and provided clear and great instructions for the apartment. We will definitely be back next trip to NYC!!
