There are also utensils/glasses/cups/plates in the room for your convenience. You have use of the main kitchen at all times and share the bathroom.There is a dishwasher for any cleanup and the whole apt is air conditioned with WIFI.Full closet and 3 arced windows facing south and west for amazing exposure to Morningside Park/Cathedral of St.John the Divine.5 minutes walk to Columbia University.Brand new queen size platform bed with a new air bed for a third guest/2 children.Although the room is non-smoking,I have access to the hall landing for smoker's convenience.Washer/Dryer on premesis.10 minute walk from Central Park and the Harlem Meer.This is one of the most desirable areas in upper Manhattan with our own new 'Restaurant Row'of Harlem/Morningside.The subway(b/c) is 2 blocks away and there is a fantastic supermarket(Best Yet) about 5 minutes walk.This is the apex of residential living with all the trappings of nightlife and convenience right around the corner.If you are culturally intrigued,you only have to walk 3 blocks to the best Sunday Gospel Churches and the African Market is not much farther.If your aspirations are for midtown/downtown,the train gets you where you need to go in 20 minutes.Please inquire as I do offer discounts for week or more stays.This is as close as you can come to having your own studio for a hostel price and you will want for nothing

Why Alex Meyer chose Manhattan

The area here is one of the last laid back residential feeling areas in upper Manhattan which had proximity to all the things I cherish(parks,museums,Columbia U).I wanted to be part of a neighborhood that has flavor and is growing with out being sterilized.Could'nt be happier in Manhattan

What makes this apartment unique

My apartment has many arced windows,roof access and a view to the Americas largest Cathedral right from the studio Bay window.The Park is directly across the street and Central Park a stone's throw.I enjoy that it is a new building with the old style charm from the outside without all the slapped together feeling you get in most affordable coops in the city.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Veeeeeeeeeeeeeeery cool couple who give off the aire of being young purpose seekers despite being entrenched in real parenthood.I would love to see these two on their own turf. Félicitez les admirables français

Review of Alex's Place

  • 4 of 5

A spacious place, in NYC standards. It was as described on the listing. Alex was very friendly and accommodating to us. We loved his dog. I was out of breath every time I climbed the stairs, but got better as I did it more. I would recommend this lodging to anyone who can climb stairs.

Wonderful host, wonderful place, wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here at Alex's lovely apartment! He was a great host who was keen to give us his insight into the surrounding areas which was a great help. The apartment was clean and tidy, and Alex provided all the necessary equipment one might need for a holiday! The area was great too, with a fantastic community feel to it. Thank you very much for letting us stay, it couldn't have been better! Hope to keep in touch!

Best place, Best price, Clean, Very good Hospitality and warm Welcome.

  • 5 of 5

If you need a fairly quiet place to stay for the night, then you'd be hard pressed to find a better place for this price. It kinda felt like coming back to your parent's house and sleeping in your old room. Even though I arrived early, Alex helped me to park my car which was really really helpful to me. Getting parking spot in the heart of the city is nightmare. But i didn't face that problem. Check-in time was 4 pm but we entered the room at 11:30 am, just imagine how generous he is. He was really kind and Seemed like a really nice person. I'll definitely be staying here again.

Thank you Alex for everything. I appreciate your hospitality.
