About the property

Studio with View of Riverside Park - Hudson River - 2 Blocks to Broadway

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. We are located 2 blocks from Broadway and the 96th St Subway express stop [2 stops to 45th St/Time Square]. Bus stops on block away Well laid out modern studio with separate living and sleeping space. Doorman and elevator building.

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.

About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Upper West Side

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.

What makes this condo unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Leslie,

I filled in the review, but I have a constitutional dislike of using facebook, and refuse to sign up for it.

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.

Excellent NYC studio for short or extended stays

  • 5 of 5

This is a quiet, well-appointed studio in a well-run building on the Upper West Side, minutes from Riverside Park and the 96th street subway stop. The Park works well for running or walking; and there's easy access to the Hudson River walk. The unit is tastefully and thoughtfully furnished and supplied. It is within easy walking distance of all the stores one might need on Broadway, including very good grocery stores. It's also an easy walk to Central Park. The kitchen is highly functional, and the layout creates a small, but useful sitting area. The computer desk/bookshelf unit is perfect for work. Leslie Marsee is an excellent communicator and everything was as advertised. The building staff is friendly and helpful. I would certainly return and/or recommend it to a friend. Perfect for a trip to New York, if a studio apartment works for you.

Great location and comfortable for extended stay

  • 5 of 5

The studio is in a well kept elevator building with 24 hour doorman service. The staff is very pleasant and helpful. There is a view of Riverside Park, the Hudson River and, in the distance, the GW bridge. It is about a 2 block walk to the #1,2 and 3 subways which allows you to get pretty much wherever you want easily. There are numerous restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk and many others within a 15 minute walk or a short subway ride. The studio is nicely decorated and should you have any additional needs or questions the owner is very responsive. This is our second winter stay at this apartment and if our budget allows it it will be our choice for next year as well.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I was in NYC for a few weeks on business and this apartment was my oasis away from the chaos. It is steps from the water and beautiful Riverside Park. Close to the 123 and tons of restaurants as well. The team of doormen at this building are top notch and really helped to make my arrival / departure effortless. Highly recommended.

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.

Great apartment, great location!

  • 5 of 5

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.
