A pre-war 2 bedroom apartment on the most beautiful block in midtown Manhattan: all prewar apartment buildings; no businesses. Only all-residential block in midtown Manhattan!
Large Master Bedroom, 12' x 15' with queen sized bed Shiffman mattress (the best) & 100% goose-down blanket in top quality duvet! Full cable tv. 42" flatscreen. A decent amount of closet space (about 1/3) & 3 empty bureau shelves in each bedroom. The 2nd bedroom (10' x15') has the choices of 2 twin Aerobeds (9" in height) and/or 1 9" queen-sized air bed on top of which i place a queen-sized featherbed; therefore, it is almost as luxurious as the bed in the 1st bedroom! The same amount of closet & drawer space! Large living/dining room of 300sq.' It includes a very comfortable couch (like an extra long twin bed). Elegant dining area! Much improved since those pics were taken!
Comfortably fits 5 people, but only for a family with children I would think (unless your situation is very compelling)! Generally I host groups of four, sometimes three! After the February 2013 paint job photos are up, fee will rise but probably not unless more than 4 people!
This quiet, tree-lined block is actually in an amazingly central location. 2 short blocks from Carnegie Hall, 6 from Lincoln Center, and 2 - 12 to all Broadway shows. Also very close to the E, D, B, C, A, N, Q, R, N, and #1 subway trains. Close to midtown business and shopping including Columbus Circle and 57th Street!!! Close to the 57th Street art galleries, and also to MOMA & the many museums close to MOMA. Short walk to yRockefeller Center & Times Square. 4 or 5 short blocks to Central Park & to Hudson River Park.
H Have 3 bikes in bikeroom downstairs so you can also enjoy huson River Park, a lovely shoreline park that goes all around Manhattan! BCitibike, NYC's bike-sharing program has arrived. There are Y always wanted more cafés; still don't have them!
This is a bed & breakfast, and I ensure many breakfast choices during your stay: coffee, teas, milk, 1/2 'n 1/2, cereal, croissants, bagels, bialys, butter, cream cheeses, yogurt, fruit, jams, even Nutella, Belgian biscuit cookie spread & Marmite. (It can depend upon what is available!) If you tell me in advance; i.e., "We love soy milk!" or "We love almond milk," j I will endeavor to have it!!!
Plus: wifi & guest space on my computer (in second bedroom). Beautiful original museum quality paintings on walls. Midcentury modern design. Lots of sheets, duvets, towels & blankets. The city is full of bike lanes & in a year, bikes will be free, but for now, they are 6 - 10 $s per hour, so just bikes & breakfast alone make this a great choice!
We now have a VERY fancy lobby. And the apartment has improved enormously since I took those shots! Has it ever!!! Plus, we have the most wonderful building staff in all Manhattan!

My Husband, two teenage children and myself stay @ Lynnie's over the Christmas / NY period and it was a God Send. Staying in an apartment is perfect vs a hotel were space is very limited and you can't find a place for quite me time which we all need after the rigors of holiday site seeing or shopping, we looked forward to making it home after a hectic day, yes I called it home as this is what it felt like to us, everything is there that you would need and much more. The breakfast foods that Lynnie supplies is perfect to start off your day in a relaxed style before you head out for a day of adventures. Lynnie is the most interesting, genuine, loving, honest person I have met in a long time and it was refreshing to know people like her still exists in this world today. Her apartment is perfectly situated to everything you would want to see and do in NYC, museums, Central Park, Times Square, stores for shopping & subways. We had better meals in local restaurant's than we did in highly recommend restaurants, Georgio's Country Grill on 9th Ave and Cancun Mexican restaurant on 8th Ave both are a short walk from the apartment.If you like 5 star treatment then this is the place to stay, the door staff are friendly and the apartment block has so much history you can feel it has many stories to tell, I just wished I could have walked back in time to hear and see them all, the lobby has been beautifully renovated recently and the laundry room is fantastic, weather permitting there are 4 bikes at your disposal which would be fantastic to use to cycle through Central Park. I would not hesitate to stay here again and I consider Lynnie a new friend for life.
Lynnie's apartment is located in a terrific position with easy access to all the NYC sites, either by walking or via the subway. The apartment is very warm and homely, and equipped with everything you need for your stay.
Thank-you for a great week Lynnie. My sister and I and two friends enjoyed meeting you on our arrival. The apartment is in a perfect location for most anything you want to do in the big apple. Clean and spacious. Walking distance to most any attraction. Plenty of dining experiences on 9th Ave. But if you didn't feel like dining out the food is abundant, varied and delicious. The apartment is comfortable and a welcoming place to come home to relax after an exhausting day or just to start out your day. We'd definitely rent again. Overall it was a great experience.
My friend and I had nine wonderful days in New York in August, and staying in Lynnie's apartment certainly contributed to our New York experience. The location of the apartment is within easy walking distance to the many attractions we came to New York to enjoy. Lynnie was a very warm welcoming host who was there to meet me and go through the ins and outs of staying in a New York apartment. We found the apartment comfortable and a very pleasant place to spend an evening after a busy day of sightseeing. The breakfast, fruit, bagels etc etc was bonus. The only slight downside for us was that the second bedroom was not as comfortable as the main bedroom.
I stayed at Lynne's apartment for almost two weeks with my family and must say it worked out very well. The apartment was easily big enough the four of us. The location just a few blocks from Central Park also turned out to be great, especially for our three year old.
Lynne is a great host and met us when we arrived pretty late in the evening. There was enough breakfast to last us the entire period (and probably an extra week).
The apartment and building are somewhat old and it shows here and there but it was nothing that felt like an issue and you can tell from the pictures what kind of place it is. It mostly added to the charm of the place.
I have no problems recommending the place if you are heading to New York, especially if you are a group of 3-5 people it feels like great value.
We would like to thank Lynne so much. She is such a wonderful, warmhearted and unique person. We loved her apartment very much. It's perfectly situated to discover midtown and beyond. The top of it all is the breakfast she provides for you. Don't miss the late shows at Dizzies Club at Jazz at the Lincoln Center with view over Central Park by night.
My family and I had 2 fabulous weeks in this apartment. Lynne had thought of everything we might need including a choice of cereals. bagels. milks etc for breakfast. The bed was probably one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on and my sons were very comfortable in the second bedroom. The location of this apartment is so amazing. We walked everywhere and if we didn't walk we used the 4 bikes Lynne made available for us. That was so cool and what a great way to see Manhattan! The apartment was very clean when we arrived and Lynne had left little notes dotted around the apartment in case we forgot anything. She was so helpful and approachable and certainly has a great knack of making you feel welcome right from the beginning. The air-conditioning units worked perfectly in all the rooms and she even had air purifiers too. The staff at the front desk of the apartment were very friendly and they even opened up the roof on July 4th so the residents could watch the Macy's fireworks display. We would highly recommend this apartment in this beautiful tree-lined street of Manhattan. Lynne is very serious about making sure you have everything you need and you find you will build a bond with her in the short time you know her. Thank you for an unforgettable fortnight in New York.
Lynnie est une hôtesse très très accueillante, qui laisse effectivement de quoi faire de copieux petit déjeuner.
Son appartement est très bien situé au coeur de Manhattan.
Le seul bémol pour nous c'était un peu bruyant (il y avait des travaux dans la rue) et la cuisine est un peu limite. Cela ne nous a pas empêchés de passer un très bon séjour.
I want to tell everyone reading my reviews that as you read down, you will find a spot after which phrases like "lived-in" and "could use a paint job" begin (as you go backward in time...). These were in otherwise terrific reviews and shoed great understanding of the difficulties of painting and plastering a New York City pre-war apartment, for which I remain most grateful!
Just want the reader to know, however, I did finally manage to rectify the situation! Yes! Yes! Yes! And what a job it was, too! But I want to report plastered walls of white and linen-white; honestly, the rooms are lovely. More to be done, of course, but for the many who rented this spring still on the basis of old pictures, for the one per month beginning in October, and especially to my earliest guests, I heard you! You'd love it!
Thanks so much for the help! I could not have done this without you! All of you. One group at a time, you have made it possible. Look at the pictures! You did this for me. Hugs and kisses, Lynnie!
My wife, my 15 years old daughter and myself stayed in Lynne’s apartment during one unforgettable week.
Lynne was a great host. She was very kind and made us feel welcome at her home. Even when she had to deal with a recent surgery in her broken arm, she was available every time we required her and did all what she could to ensure us a wonderful stay.
Location is perfect: just a few blocks from Central Park and close to 2 different subway stations (9 or 10 lines to choose). The neighbourhood is quiet considering the centric location.
The apartment is spacious and warm, and completely equipped with all what we needed.
Breakfast deserves a separate chapter: Lynne left supplies to feed a battalion!
Doormen were very kind as well.
Summarizing: Highly recommended!!!
