Alex Meyer purchased this apartment in 2001
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
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.
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
We stayed at this property for the first 3 days of our visit and we enjoyed it. The location is good, close to subways, parks and restaurants. But it was the little things that impressed us. The room was very nice and private. Alex, his son, and the dog were fun and provided a homey atmosphere for us. It rained heavily our first 2 days and a large umbrella was waiting for our use. Alex thought of everything. The only downside, the apartment is on the 5th floor with no elevator. But I would recommend this location highly.
Very nice the alex place, next to mayor transportation , very clean place, friendly dog the only thing that you have to think are the stairs to the 5th floor. No elevator at the building
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.
This was a great stay. It was convenient, easy and fun. I would highly recommend.
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!
