About this listing
Huge penthouse apartment in New York to rent. The apt is on the top floor in a modern building (built 2008). The apt has 3 levels including direct access to the roof from the apartment.
The apt has huge 19 foot ceilings in the living room and master bedroom. There is a balcony on the main floor as well as one on the roof. Both balcony and the master bedroom have stunning city views from the World Trade Center (Freedom Tower) up to the Empire State Building. Have a pre dinner drink on either balcony and enjoy the sun setting over the city skyline!
There is one master bedroom as well as a mezzanine loft that doubles as a guest bedroom (a premium airbed is available for the third and fourth guest). There is also a long leather couch that another guest can stay on. I have sheets for it too.

I have another apartment that I sometimes rent out that has lots of reviews. See the below link:
I can accommodate late check ins and late check outs in most cases. Keys can picked up and dropped off extremely close to the apartment. The place will also be clean with fresh sheets and towels provided.
Hope to hear from you!
We stayed at James's apartment for four glorious nights. The apartment was clean and bright. It's a 10-minute brisk walk to the J and M subway lines going to Manhattan. Communication with James was excellent and he offered us many tips on shopping and transport. I highly recommend the apartment. Being a family of 5 it was far cheaper than the cheapest hotel establishments in the Manhattan area. The apartment offers spectacular views of Downtown Manhattan and the Lower Side.
The view is amazing. James was an excellent host, accommodating my check-in and check- out times, and responding very quickly. The condo is close to tons of food, music and coffee. Excellent stay.
The place is as advertised with a beautiful view of the city from the roofdeck. The apartment was also very clean. I would recommend staying here if traveling to NYC.
James' apartment was truly perfect! Firstly, communication with James was really easy. He responded immediately via email and getting the keys was a smooth process. His place is safe, centrally located, really quiet (hard to find in NY apts), and very clean. The apartment itself is huge, with large windows allowing for lots of light. No clutter and well decorated. The balcony and rooftop areas were especially nice, with great views of the City (particularly at night). The bed was comfortable (plus he provided lots of pillows). Also, heating/AC worked really well. Street parking but always with available spots. Thanks for being a great host, James!
James' apartment was the perfect option for our trip to NYC. It's centrally located in Brooklyn, and only one subway stop away from Manhattan. James was quick to respond to my reservation request, and sent me detailed and clear instructions on picking up the key, etc... He even sent me a message during our stay asking if we needed anything or had any questions.
I could ramble on about his panoramic view of the city, but you should simply experience it for yourself. It's even better than the photos. No joke. Given the opportunity, we would definitely stay at James' apartment again. Thanks James!
Wow. This place was amazing. From the two balconies with amazing views of Manhattan to the gorgeous kitchen and really comfortable bed - I really can't say enough. James provided me with a very well thought out document which included everything I needed to know to check in and get comfortable. When I emailed James with a question about internet access he phone me immediately and was a huge help. The apartment is close to two subways stops and is a short walk to the East River Ferry which drops you at 34th Street in Manhattan.
The apt is in great part of Williamsburg, just off the main drag enough to be quiet.
