This apt is in a gated, residential community in uptown Manhattan. It is spacious, cozy, colorful and has great sunlight. It is a brief commute to dozens of NYC attractions and ten minutes from Central Park. Conveniently located three blocks walking distance to a popular subway line, there is also plenty of access to buses and taxis to get you to other parts of the city. 1 Br, living room, bath, dinning & kitchen.
This is truly a beautiful and spacious NYC apartment with a sizable bedroom and large windows for your comfort and peace of mind in the hustle and bustle of the city. The apartment gets excellent natural light through its large windows (rare in NYC), is colorful, warm, and cozy. In addition to the bedroom and living room there is a full kitchen (including microwave), dining room area, and full bath. It is also close to a number of NYC attractions (including the famous Red Rooster restaurant and Sylvia's) and only 15 minutes to Times Square and 30 minutes (a very short commute by NYC standards) to both the east and west village. You can reach Central Park in 10 minutes. Great restaurants and cafes are only blocks away as well as a super market. NYCs most visited museums are 15 minutes away making this apartment a convenient location for both just relaxing and easily reaching top destinations.
There is 24 hour security onsite and a laundry facility in the basement of the building. Outside of the building there is a lovely courtyard for sitting and relaxing outdoors when weather permits. There is a flat screen TV in the home that is HDMI and Chromcast ready for your internet streaming enjoyment while relaxing on the super large cozy couch. There is also a DVD player and a number of DVDs.
The whole apartment is yours! It is really a two bedroom but I travel frequently and often for months at a time. When I travel I close off my room and leave entire home and the second bedroom to you while I'm gone. There is a dresser and an empty closet for you to use should you need it.
Interaction with guests
I will be available by phone or email if you need me, otherwise I regret that I personally will not be there to greet you. However, a dear friend of mine will give you the keys and there are a number of ways I can offer you assistance from afar need be, and plenty of people onsite who can serve you should something arise. I am also happy to give you tips and suggestions of places to visit and ways to get there. I'm a proud native New Yorker and love helping others get a good taste of the city!

The only rule is absolutely NO SMOKING!! Otherwise, I just expect the common courtesy extended to another's home i.e.: keeping it damage free, neat, clean, and returning it to the way you found it. Treat my home with love, care, and respect please! It is a pleasure to share it with you. If you absolutely must bring a pet, let's talk about it I may agree.
