About Linda

We relocated from California over 30 years ago, and love New York, especially the Upper West Side. The park is our backyard. We picnic, run, bike, play tennis, attend free concerts, and shows. Winters in our 'backyard' often allows us to sled, ski, and skate.

We love dining, and are so fortunate to have every type of cuisine and ethnicity within walking distance from our home.

Travels away from home take to exotic locations to explore, and play. Scuba diving is one of many passions, as well as skiing, and Yankees Baseball.

Linda purchased this apartment in 1994

What makes this apartment unique

Ground Floor Apartment, approx 400 Sf, in small intimate historic building with 10 units. Quiet and private with all the excitement of the big city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Linda,



I stayed at your vacation rental apartment for three days the second week in May, and have been meaning to e-mail you to say thank you. Sorry this is a belated thank you, but it's been crazy-busy here.

The apartment was absolutely immaculate and lovely, better than I could have imagined. I was impressed at how thoughtfully you had stocked the fridge and supplied all sorts of toilettries in the bathroom. And I loved having that wonderful big bathtub to soak in the day that I walked from W 83rd all the way down to 21st Street and back again! The neighbourhood was great - so conveniently located -- and I always felt safe, even when walking home from supper at the nearby restaurants in the evening after dark.



I've kept your contact info to give to any friends who might be wanting to visit your wonderful city, and if I'm lucky enough to be able to return to NYC, I will definitely be contacting you again to stay at your apartment.



Thanks again for making my days on my own in NYC safe and comfortable.



Very best regards,

RTF

Linda and Steve have "thought of everything" in their cozy, inviting and well-appointed studio. Felt fortunate to have found it, and anxious to return.

PERFECT LITTLE APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5

You won't find a better base for a visit to New York.

The apartment is spotless and in a fantastic neighbourhood. We have rented many apartments in various countries over the years and never had the little extras that the owner Linda provided, like fluffy white house coats and fridge full of water, coffee and snacks. Linda was so welcoming and helpful and when we return to New York we would definitely stay at this apartment again.
