Spacious Renovated One Bedroom Is Situated Directly On Riverside Park
- english, a little Spanish
Greetings! I'm a southern California native who's lived in New York for just over 10 years and can honestly say that even the coldest of winters has not deterred me from enjoying everything NYC has to offer! Running is one of my passions and am fortunate to have made my new life next to one of the most beautiful and tranquil parks in NYC - Riverside Park, on the Hudson River. I am a former restaurateur who currently works in hospitality and I transfer that expertise into the apartment and my guests as i've always loved entertaining and sharing my homes with others. The walls are adorned with original artwork by a local NYC artist and decorated with modern yet comfortable furnishings. I use the apartment regularly so it is well equipped with everything you'll need to live comfortably. My hope is to find like-minded people who are respectful but will enjoy the warm and inviting atmosphere I've tried to create to its fullest. Please don't hesitate to ask me additional questions about the apartment or specific inquiries/needs you may have that I failed to address in the description. I hope you get the opportunity and have the desire to experience my little oasis for yourself. Cheers, C
CG purchased this Apartment in 1996
Why CG chose Upper West Side
I chose the upper west side because I found myself attracted to the beautiful parks - Central & Riverside Parks - allowing me all the open space I need right in my own backyard. It's a slightly calmer lifestyle here, not being in the middle of the chaos of mid and downtown, but within just a couple of blocks from an express subway stop gets me anywhere quickly and easily.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment is modern and contemporary but in an historic pre-war building so it features the best of the old and new in a sunny, spacious and clean space.

My husband and I loved our stay. The apartment was comfortable and had every amenity. The bed was large and comfortable. It is very close to public bikes and also the wonderful ride along Hudson River Parkway.
Beyond our highest expectations
This apartment was perfect in every way—immaculately clean, tastefully furnished with beautiful artwork on the walls, fully equipped with every imaginable amenity, superbly located within walking distance of friends, family and shopping. It really felt like a home away from home, and we feel so fortunate to have found it. Our heartfelt thanks to Catherine.
This is a magnificent VRBO site.
Of all the VRBO places we have stayed in in New York, this is by far the best. Amenities like a five-star hotel. Clean. Comfortable and firm king-size bed. We will be coming back many times. We are in love with this condo and the owner was unbelievably helpful and friendly.
Five Star Location and Apartment
We have stayed in Home Away apartments around the world; this is the nicest we have known. Perfect location with easy access to all NYC attractions but in a quiet and beautiful neighborhood over the Hudson River.and Riverside Park. Perfect owner-host who has added every imaginable amenity, like a suite in a five star hotel! Great staff in building with great fitness center, laundry and bike room. Alcove adds an additional level of individual privacy; we were there for a month and never felt like we were on top of each other. Our daughter camped out with us for five nights and it never felt crowded. We will back regularly to soak in everything about the greatest city in the world!
Wonderful nyc apartment. Well kept
Thoroughly enjoyed my stay
Well equiped Upper West Side Apartment
We loved our stay at Catherine's Upper West Side apartment. Its is easy to get to and has great access to the rest of the city. Catherine was very accommodating and helpful and always available if we needed her. I love what she has done with the apartment. It is very comfortable, fully equipped and Catherine throws in allot of extras that made our trip to New York a pleasure. We will definitely stay there again on our next trip.
The quiet and convenient position of the apartment, located across from Riverside Park (and 4 blocks from Central Park), is perfect for EVERYTHING you'll want to do in NY, especially for a multitude of outdoor activities; unbelievable running, biking, rollerblading and walking trails are directly across the street; bird watching, nature exploring and hiking are fabulous, especially in the old growth areas of Central Park. Tennis on clay courts is just a block away in Riverside Park or on hard courts in Central Park, or fishing on the Hudson. There's also free kayak rentals a short walk away on the Hudson (seasonal), and the Central Park Ice Skating Rink is a short subway ride away.
The apartment is a few walkable blocks from Columbia University, Lincoln Center and the Natural History Museum. And of course as much eating and shopping as you and your budget can manage are just steps away.
The close proximity to an express subway stop makes the location ideal for getting directly to fabulous shopping at Time Warner Center/Columbus Circle, Time Square and the Theater District in just 10 minutes, Greenwich Village just 4 stops away and all the way down to the World Trade Center site and financial district in 20 minutes. But don't stop there, without having to complicate your lives with subway transfers, you can get directly to Brooklyn and the Barclay's Center on the same subway line (and, of course Madison Square Gardens and Penn Station are just 3 stops away).
And for a wonderful walk, head through Central Park and you'll get to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in 30 minutes.
