About Judith Mason

I am a retired chaplain. I'm very interested in hearing about life in other countries. I love to read - especially fiction that conveys a sense of the experience and interior lives of characters in different cultures.

Judith Mason purchased this townhome in 1969

Why Judith Mason chose Manhattan

I grew up in the South and missed the natural world when I married a man from New York City and moved here with him. This brownstone with its front, back and terrace gardens enabled me to have a little touch of green serenity in all the hustle and bustle of the Big Apple.

What makes this townhome unique

I guess I'm a romantic at heart and prefer a home with the graciousness of the nineteenth century over the hard lines of the 21st. We have lived here so long we have something special for everybody of every age to enjoy.

Beautiful Brownstone in NYC

  • 5 of 5

We had a nice two day stay at Judith's home. Very clean, fully stocked fridge, and safe location. We will book the suite next time as Judith's homemade breakfast is included (with many great reviews) and a better opportunity to visit with her. We checked the suite out and the temperpedic pull out bed looks very comfortable. There is a darling children's room also...would be great for a family.

Perfect place to stay for the NYC Marathon

  • 5 of 5

My daughter ran in the NYC Marathon and I booked Judith's Manhattan Brownstone for my family's stay - all seven of us with two small children!!!!! It was an absolute dream come true for us!!!! This was some of my family's first time in New York and it was even better than we could have imagined. Judith and her son went out of their way to make us feel at home and the breakfast time was a sheer delight. Judith was the perfect host and I could not have picked a better environment for my family. Thank you again Judith for your amazing hospitality!!!! Marsha and Family

We booked this rental for a girls weekend and we were very pleased. Judith was a great hostess and an amazing cook. She can cook a mean fried egg! It felt as if we had the place to ourselves most of the time and felt very safe.

Great, helpful, second home

  • 5 of 5

Nice friendly, helpful 2 nd attent for review...

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

We were 2 familly travelling with young children, we enjoyed our stay in Judith's home, so much better than a hotel, quiet area, easy to get to the subway, and easy access to central park for the kids.

Thank you so much for answering our request as beds, strollers, and even a play room for our little monsters.

Thank you for accepting us a little earlier to drop suitcases, and on the day we where leaving, for allowing us to leave them at your place, for a last visit at the park..greatly appreciated that.

Also big thank you for the fruit, and the milk for our little one, it made our first morning so much easier for us.

The pool was also a big plus to keep grow ups and little one entertainned. Lovely meeting you and hearing all you had to say about your home and your history.

Nice pizza, around the corner and the thai is great...

We would come back again, on a future trip to new york, as you have been so kind, and easy going with all our request.. Great breakfast, our little guy enjoyed the sausages very much...

Only problem, we did not stay very long.. Will do next time...

All the best, thanks a lot to Ben for his help as well.

This brownstone is one of many on a quiet, tree-lined block with free street-parking available. Half a block away is the neighborhood's 'Restaurant Row' which lines Lexington Avenue from 99th to 102nd Street. Mt. Sinai Hospital is a block away 'as the crow flies' and many museums throng Fifth Avenue, which - together with Central Park - is two blocks away. It is 1 block to a bus or 2 and 1/2 Blocks to a subway train, which in less than 10 minutes puts you in the heart of midtown and all that New York City has to offer.
