About this listing
Beautiful newly-renovated 1 bedroom apartment on the 6th floor of a bright modern secure building with an elevator. The apartment is on top floor of the building and has large airy windows, high ceilings and polished bleached wooden floors. The view from living room is a uniquely NY experience as it looks down onto the Avenue of the Americas and looks up to a skyline that includes the Empire State building; in the bed room, the hustle and bustle of downtown NY is replaced by large billowing trees that provide a calming oasis with the perfect amount of shade and a wonderful breeze for those warm summer nights. The top floor also means that the noise level which is infamous for NY is faint. The living room has a brand new sofa/crash pad, designer lighting and furniture and A/C (new and powerful). The bedroom has a brand new bed, ample storage and space. There is a fully equipped, newly renovated kitchen and also a newly renovated bathroom with bathtub and power shower. Towels and sheets are supplied. High Speed internet available.
The apartment is so comfortable and is a wonderful base in the city which offers so much, at once a retreat and also at the center of everything with its amazing location. The building sits on a square that is perfect for people-watching with its benches and trees and also a convenient and friendly Deli that is open till late and a florist. There is a washer and dryer facility in the basement of the building that is available for you to use although the option of serviced washes and drying cleaning exists with the laundrette/cleaners just across the street.
The superb location of the apartment means that walking to the west takes you into the heart of the famous West Village with its restaurants, shops and cafes. Further west and only a 10 minute walk away is the Hudson River Park with all its glory - activities (from jogging to canoeing to tennis) and just the sheer beauty of the river. To the East and only a few steps away is bustling SoHo with its many shops, restaurants and fun. Basically, some of the best restaurants in town are on our doorstep. To the south is TriBeca, again a cool neighborhood with plenty of restaurants, looking to the South one sees the Freedom Tower, a new and significant not to mention beautiful landmark in the city . North of the West Village is Chelsea with all its art galleries. The neighborhood no matter which direction is filled with small parks, basketball courts and playgrounds. From the small Vesuvio Playground to Playground of the Americas to Washington Square Park which is only a few blocks away. There are a few gyms also close by with the closest Equinox gym only a few blocks away. The IFC cinema is a few blocks north and to the east is the Angelika, although Union Square with its shops and movie theaters is also not too far away. The perfect location to experience all that New York has to offer.
The location also benefits from the most convenient public transportation links with Spring St (C,E) train a block away. 1, N,R trains are also very near.
It s also never hard to find a cab.
We love our apartment so much - it is so comfortable and we could not ask for a better location! We hope you enjoy your stay as much as how much we love to live there.

Perfect apartment in a great spot! Philip was very responsive from the first inquire and was always available during our stay to help us through any doubt. Everything was perfect upon arrival and Philip gave us a lot of excellent tips for our visit.
The apartment is nice, sunny and really comfortable, felt like home.
The neighbourhood is just the best.
We highly recommend the apartment and the host!!!
Philip was in contact right away after we rented the space and remained accessible during our entire stay. We felt very welcome in the apartment and really enjoyed the location. The apartment allows for a lot of sunlight, plenty of space for our family of 4 and was clean and comfortable. We definitely recommend it.
Even though our flight was late and we got in far later than expected, the check-in process was easy. The place is located within a couple of minutes from Spring St subway station which made it rather convenient for exploring both uptown and downtown. We made almost daily use of the deli downstairs in the building as well as some of the restaurants that Philip provided us a reference to. Overall, this was a good (and first) AirBNB experience for us and we would stay here again.
A great spot in a great neighborhood. Philip made sure everything went well for my friend and I, including providing a well-researched list of great restaurants and things to do in the neighborhood. Apartment is comfortable with a small kitchen that includes a gas stove and refrigerator. Buy some groceries on the first floor and save some $$$ by cooking a meal or two!!
We loved staying in Philip's apartment! Accurate description, great neighborhood, excellent host: truly felt like home away from home. Will definitely book again, thank you Philip!
Perfect location in Soho! Already planning to book Phillips on next trip! Very comfortable, prefer over any hotel. Phillip is easy to communicate with and all instructions were very clear. Can't wait to go back!!! The designer in me loved the furniture too :)
Philip and his place were the perfect host and stay we could have imagined for our nyc family trip. We stayed for two and a half weeks and always loved comming home to this beautiful, clean and perfectly located home. We were a bit worried because this was our first time travelling to nyc with our two year old, but Philip's place helped get rid of all our anxieties. amenities included a crib, laundry, elevator, and a bathtub. The apartment is located close to major subway lines and great restaurants and trendy shops but still maintains a very quiet and serene ambiance. It's a corner unit, so there is lots of windows and natural light. 24 hour healthy mini grocery downstairs was so convenient as well. We absolutely adore Philip's home and look forward to staying there again. Philip was also very easy to communicate with, which made our stay hassle-free. Can't wait to visit nyc again. Thank you so much for having us stay Philip. Your place is a gem. - abee, aki & ted
