The space

Summer 2017 in the city! (Please note: Regardless of openings in the calendar, we only rent out during the summers--Mid June-Labor Day. Thank You!)

Experience Manhattan townhouse living in this comfortable and spacious ”brownstone” apartment located right in the heart of Manhattan’s Upper West Side! Our bright, sunny, large, well-appointed apartment is an excellent base from which to explore the city.

The living space of this apartment takes up the entire 2nd floor, originally called the parlor floor by the wealthy merchant family who built it in 1875. The apartment is a duplex, and two bedrooms are upstairs on the third floor of the building.

The apartment can sleep 4 people comfortably, and up to 6 if needed. Upstairs, one small bedroom has a queen bed--the bed is against the wall on one side--please see photos. The other, larger one, has two twin beds. Downstairs, the den can fit a twin airbed. A twin air mattress is available for the living room if needed as well. A third, twin airbed is available upon request. There is one full bathroom upstairs (with shower and bathtub) and one full bathroom downstairs (with shower).

Central Park is just steps away! World famous gourmet food markets and high end shopping is around the corner. Best cinema in city is two blocks away (often hosts red carpet premieres). We are two blocks from the West 72nd St. subway station which is a major hub on the 1/2/3 lines. Horse and carriages, pedicabs, finest reviewed restaurants--are all within walking distance! Trader Joe's is 2 blocks away, and 24-hour CVS across the street.

We make sure the apartment is professionally cleaned and fully stocked for each new guest. All linens are high-quality and new. The central air conditioning system will keep you cool and comfortable in the summer. Our charming and quiet residential block is a great respite from the bustle of the city, yet close to everything.

Amenities include:
- High speed wireless internet, and ethernet cable hookup
- 55" HD Flat-Screen Cable TV
- Blu-Ray DVD player
- Central AC which works very well
- Full kitchen with stove, fridge, microwave, toaster and coffee maker
- Pots, pans, utensils, dishes, glasses, serving implements, dish towels
- Bath towels, hand towels, bed linens
- Queen size bed
- Alarm clocks
- Hair dryer
- Iron
- There is a washer dryer in unit which is available upon request
- A portable crib for infants is available upon request

Loved staying here with our family of 5. Plenty of room for all of us and loved the location. Close to the Park and the River which we walked to both every day. Diane was very attentive and answered any questions we had. Would love to stay again on our next trip to the City.

we had a real good stay in this brownstone house. in case of a future stay in NYC, we will do it again. Optimal place in NYC and the house full of charme. Much better than any hotels in in the City. Ted and Diane are very helpfull and get everything clarifid very well upfront. They also asked several times during our stays if everything was fine and if anything missed or needed to be fixed.

The apartment in New York was what we needed and looked exactly as expected. It was the perfect location for our family trip and accommodated 5 of us without issue. During our stay, the apartment had air conditioning issues which was uncomfortable in the NY humidity. Although it was inconvenient, Diane stayed in constant communication with me regarding the issue. She got a technician to the apartment to attempt to resolve the problem in a timely fashion. With no luck, Diane provided us alternate sleeping arrangements in the building. This provided a bit of reprieve from the heat. NY has so much to offer and we rarely stayed in the apartment for any length of time, therefore, it was tolerable. Because Diane worked with us, we did not have to find a last minute hotel room and for that we are grateful. The apartment is within walking distance to the subway station, grocery stores, restaurants and shops. The neighborhood felt safe and the other residents in the building were very friendly and made our stay enjoyable.

Ted and Diane are terrific hosts and their communication is outstanding. The location of the apartment is terrific, it's safe and secure and close to all of the necessities (subway, restaurants, grocery, etc.). There are steps up to the apartment and steps inside up to the bedrooms. There is a fully equipped kitchen and nice sized dining area for families and the A/C works great. We did have a minor issue with some odors, but the owners responded immediately and the issue was resolved. All in all, a great choice for NY!

Hi, we are a couple who love living on Manhattan's Upper West Side. We rent our apartment in a brownstone we own here in the Lincoln Center neighborhood, in the heart of the Upper West Side--one of the best neighborhoods in the city. Our friendly, owner-occupied, secure, convenient building will have all the amenities you need. We like to make our guests feel that this is their home away from home and try to be accessible should they have questions on sightseeing, restaurants etc. We carefully conform to all NYC laws which mean that one of us will be present in the building during your stay. You will, of course, get to enjoy the spaces pictured in this listing with privacy. We hope you will choose to stay with us for your trip to New York City!
