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.

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!
