Enjoy the view of Riverside Park, the Hudson River and the George Washington Bridge in our well laid out Upper West Side studio. This is the perfect location for professional, educators, retirees, and grandparents visiting and working in NYC.
The neighbor is safe and quite; only 2 blocks from all of the restaurants, groceries, and shops on Broadway, 3 blocks from Amsterdam. You can get anywhere on the NYC bus and subway system – there are 3 bus lines within 1 block and the express subway station is 2 blocks on Broadway.
Riverside Park is across street which offers great walking/jogging/biking paths, clay tennis courts, and a pool during the summer. Conveniently located near Columbia University.
The building has very friendly 24 hour doorman, elevators, nice clean laundry room. The layout of the studio is nice because there is a separate area for the living room and the bed. Our unit was recently converted to condos so everything is new.
Enjoy the New York Times delivered to your door daily.
Queen bed and fold out (full bed) couch provides separate sleeping and living space including 2 large closets, cable TV, high speed-wireless, domestic phone calls, all new appliances, linens, fully equipped top-of-the-line kitchen (sub-zero refrigerator, Miele stainless steel gas cook tops and ovens, dishwasher), thermostat controlled heat and air conditioning, and heated bathroom floor. The New York Times will be delivered to your door step daily.
In addition to our NYC condo we own a vacation rental near the beach in Ventura, CA and a two unit home in Petoskey, MI on Lake Michigan. When we retired we decided that rather then "settling" down in one of our homes we would continue to rent them and when they were all rented and we were "homeless" we would travel. We are on the road 4 to 6 months a year. Jeff retired as a college president and currently is consulting with colleges it increase their student success rate. Leslie spends her time planning the trips and managing this and the three other rental. We spend the summers in upstate NY where Jeff is working as the waterfront director at a YMCA camp. Our 3 adorable grandchildren live in Houston so we pop in and out of there between trips. When not on the road Jeff spends his time golfing, gardening, and reading. Leslie enjoys playing tennis and dabbling in watercolor painting.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2006
We purchased this property in 2006, Jeff had been living in the City and returned to California for a career move. He wanted to maintain an "anchor" in the city.
The reason we knew this was the right property for us was the amazing views and the incredible location, along with the fact that it is a studio but the layout allows for the sleeping area to be behind the living area rather then integrated into one space.

Here is the review:
On top: Wonderful apartment and view
Rating: 5 stars
Comments: I always enjoy staying in this apartment. It has all the appliances and room one can need. It has good air and a great view, and was spotless when I arrived. Also there is immediate service to any problems that arise both in-house and from the owners. For instance, when there was a problem with the TV screen, Leslie and her mother came the next day with a bigger new screen to replace the old one. I shall definitely wish to continue renting this apartment when I come to New York, as I have been very happy there.
Please feel free to post the review or copy it into your visitor's book.
All the best, and looking forward to renting from you in the future.
Apartamento algo pequeño pero agradable, adecuado para viajeros solitarios o parejas, con todo el equipamiento necesario; a resaltar la excelente situación ante el largo parque de la rivera del Hudson, la proximidad del metro y del autobús, la discreción y educación del vecindario y la amabilidad de los porteros.
My husband and I spent a wonderful month in this apartment on the Upper West Side. The location was terrific, the apartment was well set up with everything we needed for a nice stay. The wireless was excellent, everything was clean, and the kitchen was well equipped. Leslie was great to work with and everything went according to plan. We look forward to staying here again in the future.
My husband and I spent a wonderful month in Manhattan on the Upper West Side. The location was terrific, the apartment was well set up with everything we needed for a nice stay. The wireless was excellent, everything was clean, and the kitchen was well equipped. Leslie was great to work with and everything went according to plan. We look forward to staying here again in the future.
This was our first use of VRBO, so naturally we were a little uncertain initially about how the process worked. Everything turned out just fine and we were totally satisfied with our month in this great studio apartment.
Leslie was very helpful, timely and thoughtful in all her communications before the booking and on the couple of occasions we contacted her during our stay.
The apartment was exactly as described, clean, very well maintained, good TV, great stove top, comfy queen bed and an excellent shower/bath. A copy of the New York Times delivered to the door daily was a real bonus.
The safe and quiet location is excellent, 2 minutes away from a relaxing stroll in Riverside Park. Less than a 5 minute walk to 96th St Station where you have access to both local and express services. Busy Times Square and the Theatre district is only 2 Express stops away, if that's your thing. You can walk east 5 blocks to Central Park or catch the frequent M96 crosstown bus (on 96th St) to Central Park West if you're in a hurry.
Local places we'd recommend highly are Barney Greengrass on 86th & Amsterdam for breakfast and Vai restaurant on Amsterdam near 81st for dinner. Three delicious dining options a little further afield are Marc Forgione in Tribeca, St Anselm in Williamsburg and Blue Ribbon Brasserie in SoHo. We also recommend City Rover Walks as a great way to deepen your understanding of different areas.
Finally a big THANK YOU to Leslie for providing a thoroughly reliable and trusting experience. We would not hesitate to return and we will highly recommend this apartment to our friends and family.
I spent the month of October in NYC pretending to live like a real New Yorker. It was everything I had hoped for thanks to this charming studio complete with view and the NYT delivered to the door every morning. Steps from Riverside Park if I wanted a morning walk and two blocks from Broadway and the subway, which I took almost everywhere. The neighborhood is quiet and accessible and I felt completely safe and at home in this wonderful apartment and building. Leslie was great to work, very responsive. She answered all of my questions quickly (which weren't many as her listing clearly spells it all out) and everything happened just as she said it would. Highly recommend. I would love, love, love to stay here again.
Our stay was fantastic in every way. Leslie is thoughtful and meticulous, and from the moment we entered, we felt at home. Every convenience is available, including a shopping cart so you don't have to haul your groceries back! We had detailed instructions on how everything operated, so from laundry to trash disposal, everything was very simple. The first thing we noticed was that the apartment was much larger than it seems from the photos. There are wonderful books on art, sights, walks and eateries in New York, which you can browse though as you put your feet up in the comfy reclining chair, or actively study for ideas of new ways to experience New York. The closet is huge, and we could put our massive bags out of sight as we settled in for our 5-week stay. A comfortable bed and couch, many surfaces for work and play, and plentifully stocked with linen, towels, soap, detergents etc., this was our first experience with renting, and has made us fans of the site and of Leslie. She was prompt, courteous and helpful at all times, and was genuinely committed to our having a great time in the apartment and in New York. I will run out of words to praise the apartment and Leslie, and still not say how great it was! The location is ideal - 2 blocks from a subway station for express and local trains, steps away from the noise and hubbub of Broadway, in a calm, peaceful, residential oasis. The river breeze never let us feel the true extent of New York's heat or humidity, and the view was a joy at all times. Thoughtful touches like metro maps, opera guides, and torches added to our comfort. Leslie, I will be back to stay at your apartment in New York (and any other properties you might have anywhere else) again and again and again! I have already recommended this property to a whole bunch of people, and will continue to do so. A heartfelt thanks, Leslie, for a wonderful apartment and an amazing experience.
