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.
It will fit up to 4 guests comfortable. Please no pets or smoking.
No smoking, no pets, no parties
Please respect neighbors at all times
Fabulous apartment in a perfect position. Great access to all the fantastic shops in both Soho and Greenwich. A 24 hour deli below is ideal and Spring St subway station only about 2 minute walk. Great value and in a word....perfect! We'll be back. Thanks Philip!
We loved to stay at Philip's apartment. It is very clean, cozy and bright. Every morning we enjoyed the beautiful sunrise.
The location couldn't be better. Restaurants, bars, shops and points of interests are in very short walking distance.
We highly recommend Philip's apartment and would definetly stay there again.
The apartment is very clean and light, and it feels much bigger than the photos. Philip was a great host! He was always easy to reach and made sure we were fine before, during and after our stay in his apartment.
Also, great location if you want to walk around in lower manhattan! The area feels very safe and the 24h opened deli next to the entrance was very convenient.
Description of the apartment is accurate. We stayed there with our teenage sons who were happy on the sofabed. Location is great with lots of shops and restaurants. Easy enough for tourism on foot and subway is just around the corner. Internet worked really well and there was even an adapter for our European plugs. Philip always replied promptly to my emails and checking in & out was really easy.
Would definitely repeat!
Philip is an excellent host! He is very responsive and thoughtful, all of which made me feel welcome as a guest in his apartment. As for the apartment, what a great location! It was easy to grab the subway or cab at any time if you weren't up for the short walk to great shops and restaurants nearby. And the 24 hour deli downstairs is a great convenience. I would definitely stay there again for our next visit!
I would stay here again. Great pplace Philip was gracious and accommodating. Perfectly situated. Lovely apartment well worth it. Can't wait to go back to New York and book. This apartment is very reasonable for its size and handsomeness.
Philip was a great host and he checked in a couple of times before and during the visit to confirm all of the arrangements. His place is true to the listing and in a very good location.
