Hello, and thank you for viewing my page.
I have a large airy very sunny bedroom to rent which is located 1 1/2 blocks from Central Park and 2 blocks from Riverside. The bed is full/queen with 3 windows in the room and very lovely sheets. The bathroom is shared and towels etc are provided. I am a gym goer, so I shower there daily. The kitchen is charming with new appliances and old world detail.You may help yourself to a french press cafe in the morning with a yogurt,toast. The apartment is on the top floor (9th) with elevator. One flight up to the roof, the view is east side across the park and down toward midtown Manhattan. The apartment is quiet.
The apartment is 1 1/2 blocks from Central Park. Just walk or take the Cross Town bus across the park and you will be at the Met Museum on 5th Avenue. Museum Mile - Guggenheim,Frick,Nueve Gallerie. If you are a runner, conveniently located to the Reservoir path for running. National History is a 2 blocks away as well as The New York Historical Museum. Restaurants and bars within walking distance on the avenues - Columbus and Amsterdam. A ten minute walk and you are at Lincoln Center. Subways the A,B,C lines 2 blocks and the 1,2,3, 3 blocks. You can get anywhere in NYC from here - 10 min. from Times Square and 20 from the 9/11 museum. Many fabulous shops are also in this area. If you want,there are prepared food at westsider's favorites, Fairway, Trader's Joe's and Zabars. Also, the apartment is just a 1/2 block away from Cafe Lalo where "You Got Mail" was filmed. If you would like to watch the sunset along the Hudson River, enjoy the view with a glass of wine at the Boat Basin in Riverside Park - just 3 blocks west. You can rent a bike at a neighborhood bike shop and ride along the Hudson from here. There are also, vegan and vegetarian restaurants just 1 and 2 blocks away that are very good!
Hairdryer if you need one
All sheets and towels are provided, .
Washing Machine in basement
My one rule is that shoes not be worn in the apartment
I always have a toothbrush, if you forgot yours
Shared bathroom. Limited use of kitchen, no evening dinner cooking, however you may bring in prepared food and eat here. Use of dining room living room (till late evening). My feeling is just make yourself at home.
I am present in the home with my guests and very willing to help with questions about NY - transportation, museums etc, local sites in the various neighborhoods. I regularly attend the major and off-beat cultural venues here and can advise my knowledge to my guests.
Yes, extremely close to most subway lines just a few blocks away,
