About the property

Located 2 blocks from West 242nd Street in NYC, we're located in the charming Ri

Located 2 blocks from West 242nd Street in NYC, we're located in the charming Riverdale/Fieldston area of the Bronx. Our 1 bedroom, 1 bath, ground floor apartment is 2 blocks away from the NYC Subway or a 15-minute drive to the heart ❤️ of Manhattan. Also just 2 blocks away from Manhattan College, Van Cortlandt Park, & across the street from the Horace Mann School, it's an ideal home-away-from-home while visiting the Big Apple or checking out local colleges.

The Space

"If you can make it here, you can make it anywhere!" You'll LOVE ❤️ your NYC experience staying on W 242nd St. You'll notice we're very centrally located.

Our "city & country chic" ground floor apartment has it's own entrance next to the garage, by the driveway. The apartment is cozy and modern, just like the metropolis we're located in!

Although this is the "city that never sleeps", sleeping accommodations are perfect for your family: clean and comfortable. The bedroom has a queen sized bed, there's a queen-sized sleeper sofa and love-seat in the living room, accompanied finally with a day-bed with a "pull-out and up" trundle bed that connects to the main twin bed to make it a king, or simply as two twin beds. The kitchen is fully equipped inclusive of a washer and dryer!

Guest access

Should you rent a car there is ample street parking. Private parking, on premise, next to apartment entry is available at an additional cost.

Other things to note

We have a wonderful travel consultant that we can recommend for your car rental, Broadway tickets, day tours, sightseeing needs and local taxi cab service for getting around town and for pick-up/drop off airport service!

The neighborhood

You're literally in the center of it all without paying exorbitant Manhattan prices.

- Manhattan - 15 minutes by car, 25 minutes by Subway which is walking distance.

- Airports - LaGuardia 20 minute taxi cab, JFK 45 minutes.

- Westchester County - 10 minutes.

- New Jersey - 15 minutes.

Located WALKING distance from the apartment are fantastic restaurants, nightlife, challenging hiking trails, horseback riding (believe it or not), NYC's first public golf course, Manhattan College, the Horace Mann School, Riverdale Country School, the Fieldston School, the NYC Subway, and Metro North!

Getting around

Aside from the NYC Subway's Number "1" line; Uber, Lyft, and NYC Taxi's are all very active in the area.

Metro North is also close-by with the Spuyten Duyvil Station only a 5 minute taxi ride away.

Lastly, NYC MTA buses are also 2 blocks away, Bx9, BxM3, and the Westchester Bee Line system is also just 2 blocks away, BL 1, 2, 3.

My Promise and Yours:

Greetings dear guest! Thank you for choosing my apartment to spend a few memorable days in New York City! It is my duty as your host, to make your stay the best possible. This means making sure that every detail is resolved quickly and without inconvenience, and to conclude your unforgettable stay, that you are 100% satisfied staying in my apartment - always serving you with the utmost respect.

For your part, please give me an opportunity to resolve any concerns - either directly or through an individual on my team. Also, I ask that we can treat each other with the highest level of respect, allowing enough time to resolve any problems. Finally, for the benefit of both a little bit of American legalese - you agree to the following statement during your stay: I state that for reasons beyond our will and negligence, or carelessness that occurs causing damage, loss, or injury to property or self, both our own and yours, as the guest or tenant you are responsible directly for compensating and repaying and rectifying the damage caused, pledging to fully comply with this liability. Finally, the beach and pool areas are well maintained however, do not have a lifeguard present at any time. Both are subject to your own risk.

Thank you and again, I wish you a fun, peaceful, and wonderful stay!

Sincerely your host,
Carlos Antón
