Upper West Side Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

'Cozy' two-bedroom brownstone apt, sleeps up to four people. Located on the Upper West Side's most lovely street, a half-block from Central Park and a few minutes'walk from major subway stations.

It's the street pictured in Nora Ephron's:'You've Got Mail' and dozens of other movies -- a quaint neighborhood with food markets, newsstands, coffee shops and bars, and your choice of restaurants almost outside the door.

You can run along the reservoir in Central Park or walk across to the Metropolitan Museum. The Museum of Natural History is minutes away, as is the Jewish Museum and the Conservatory Gardens.

The apartment is two floors up. Its rear windows look out on sycamore and willow trees, and the only sounds are those of the birds in the morning.

Lovely apartment in a fantastic location, close to Central Park

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a lovely 5 days in this great apartment. for us, it was perfect as it is located in a peaceful street 2 minutes walk from Central Park and 5 minutes walk to the nearest subway for great access to all that Manhattan has to offer.

It was so easy and cheap to get around Manhattan with the Metrocard!

The apartment was a very quiet (a peaceful haven after the hectic sightseeing!), it had everything we needed (2 adults and 2 grown up teenagers)

Don't miss the American Museum of Natural History just a couple of stops away from the apartment - what a fabulous place to lose yourselves in for a day. One of our favourite meals was in the Korean quarter where we had a traditional Korean BBQ - brilliant and affordable food!

Our hosts Joseph and Vera were excellent at keeping us informed and communicating before and during our stay - we could not recommend them enough - thanks guys!

Great little apt in a terrific location offered up by reliable and honest owners

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this apartment which is exactly as described, a cozy (but definitely not too small) spot. We were a family of three (parents and a teenager) and found the apt well-stocked with the necessary amenities. The location can't be beat - a very short walk to 2 subway stations (6 different lines) and bus stops. And of course, Central Park just doors away. We really appreciate the owners' response when the WiFi wasn't working. They did absolutely everything to fix it as soon as possible, responded to us all-but instantly. They also provided a guide to the neighbourhood (grocery stores, restaurants and more) which we used and found helpful. Not only would we recommend this rental but would certainly stay here ourselves again.

This 2 bedroom NYC apartment is in a fantastic location close to Central Park.

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I spent 4 nights in this apartment in July 2016. The location is wonderful. It's located 1/2 block from Central Park, on the upper west side, close to the 96th street subway station. The apartment's kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed to make our own breakfasts, and more meals if we had wanted to. The living area is small, but adequate. The decor is somewhat lacking, there isn't much on the walls, and a coat of fresh paint would be a big improvement. The apartment was clean, and lots of linens were provided. The bathroom has been updated recently. I was very thankful for the air conditioning units, as the weather was very hot, but they were noisy, and I did need to wear ear plugs in order to sleep. There didn't seem to be any other noise at all. Our largest complaint was the mattress of the main bedroom. It seemed to be so worn out in the centre, that we both would fall into the middle. It was very uncomfortable, and we only slept together the first night. Thank goodness we had the second bedroom that had bunk beds. For the rest of our stay, I slept on the bottom bunk. Our hosts Vera and Joseph were great communicators, and provided lots of helpful information on the local area. I wouldn't stay in the apartment again, however, unless the mattress is replaced.

Owner's Response: We try very hard to make sure our guests have an enjoyable experience while staying in our apartment. There have been no other indications from visitors that the bed is less than comfortable. It was, in fact, replaced about six months ago, and is a quality mattress purchased from Macy's department store. When we entered the apartment for cleaning, however, we saw that the mattress was not laying squarely on the bed frame and immediately adjusted it. The air conditioning units are window/wall models, not a central air unit whose working parts are separate from the living space. We will look into this further and make adjustments as required.

LOVE this place!

  • 5 of 5

We would definitely stay at this place again!

Convenient location: walking distance to subways, Central Park, tons of wonderful cafes, gelato shoppes, markets, etc.

The apartment was spotless, with wonderful rustic brick, clean bathroom and kitchen. Bedrooms are small, but we are from Texas where everything is big, and in NY, everything is smaller, but we got used it. We LOVED IT!!!

Vera was extremely attentive and ALWAYS returned my phonecalls/emails/texts within minutes (before & during my stay). You can't beat the price either. We can't say enough about this apartment and the wonderful service Vera and her housekeeping service provided. Thank you and we will definitely refer people to you home!

Feels like home!

  • 5 of 5

You can't ask for a better location. This apartment is a lovely gem in a city that can be daunting for out of state visitors. As four unescorted ladies, we NEVER felt unsafe in this neighborhood. The building is just steps away from bus and subway stops, yet feels tucked away and "homey." The close markets and drug stores were convenient. We took a leisurely 20 minute stroll through Central Park to the Met. The ability to leave our luggage until 3pm was also VERY helpful! When picking up the luggage we happened upon the cleaning service. This place is CLEAN! She appeared to be very thorough. The only thing was the volume of the TV would randomly go out. This wasn't really an issue, we didn't watch much. Just a heads up that it may need to be serviced. I can't say enough how much we enjoyed the apartment!!!

Amazing location on the UWS!!

  • 5 of 5

We felt very lucky to find a 2 bedroom apartment on the UWS located a 1/2 block from Central Park for this price. We loved the location and how quiet the neighborhood was. On our first night there we walked down the block to Central Park and came out near the reservoir. We love to spend time in Central Park so this apartment was perfect for us. This area has great restaurants, coffee shops and grocery markets on Broadway, Amsterdam and Columbus.

Vera was great to work with and very professional. We hope to stay here again in the future.
