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
My wife and I stayed for a week and had a great time. Location is good, room was big enough for us, wasn't too noisy at night, and the host, Alex , was very helpful with suggestions for things to do or places to eat. Many restaurants nearby. Subway was very convenient. Possible negatives are dog, or sharing living room and kitchen with host, but we saw those as positives, since dog is very mellow and Alex was so helpful. Stairs to fifth floor could be a problem if you're physically limited. Overall, a wonderful experience!
Alex was really amazing although he wasn't physically available he did everything in his power to make sure I settled in comfortably now that's true hospitality.
We only stayed here for two nights, but it was exactly what we wanted! The location is fabulous, and Alex was a wonderful host. The place was everything we needed. Thanks!
First of all, you can't beat the price for the time of the year that we stayed. Alex was very helpful and gave great suggestions of places to go being the foodie that I am. I've been to NYC before so this time was for local spots. Everything we needed was in the apt and Alex was very accommodating. The apt is in a great location with Central Park a few blocks away. The subway is right around the corner which was very convenient. There is no elevator in the building so be mindful when packing, you will need to carry your luggage up 4 flights of stairs. We drove from upstate NY so we parked on the street and had no issues. Overall our experience was great and if ever in NYC again I will definitely stay again! Thanks Alex for your hospitality!
We were greeted by Alex and his friendly dog lucky! Alex provided us with helpful information about the city both before and during our stay. The bed was very comfortable and room very warm although it was chilly outside! There is a fridge, microwave, hair dryer, dishes and Alex is very accomodating on anything else you may need. Thanks for a great trip to NYC!
We stayed six nights. The apartment is in a great location, good restaurants and bars nearby and close to Central Park and other parks. The room is in the corner with a view across the park to the cathedral. The host Alex is a great guy and his dog Lucky is very cool. Highly recommend this to anyone as inexpensive accommodation in New York. Close to subway stations which we used to go everywhere.
Walking distance to Columbia University and Central Park.Located directly on Morningside Park with Concerts and events throughout Spring/Summer/Fall.Museums all in walking distance(Met,Natural History)
