Apartment - Private room · Lexington Avenue, New York, NY 10128, United States

This centrally-located, Upper East Side gem is perfect for your New York adventure.

The Space

Some friendly notes before you book:
Couples/females preferred.
We don't accept requests for discounts or offsite booking.
Please tell us a bit about yourself and your trip with your message.


This place is much bigger than any NYC apartment you'll see. Try a cartwheel, skid across the floor, do an early morning stretch. All without the fear of knocking a lamp over or losing a limb.

This is a 3rd floor walkup. Not bad for NYC, just FYI in case stairs are an issue for you.

Guest Access

One of the two bathrooms is for your use exclusively, and is stocked with clean towels and an assortment of toiletries. Just what you need to wash that sweet city smell out of your pores. The shower is small, but it's all yours!

You'll have access to our fully stocked kitchen. Perfect for sharpening your culinary skills, mixing morning mimosas or haphazardly throwing together a sandwich after a night of touristy hijinks.

For the non-cooking types, we'll also provide a list of restaurant recommendations.

UPDATE YOUR STATUS. We have wifi! Because c’mon, this isn’t 1996.

GET COMFY. You'll have a medium-sized PRIVATE room. It faces away from the street (note that because of this, it gets hardly any natural sun). But if it's light you crave, the living room has tons of it!

Room has a queen sized bed, fresh linens, a desk and a flat screen tv with cable access.

Also, we hire a professional housekeeper, so no need to worry about any surprise messiness during your stay.

Interaction with Guests

This is a 3 bedroom/2 bath apt. Two females working in advertising live here. If you watch Mad Men, we’re exactly like Peggy and Joan. Except, not at all. Keep in mind we are both very busy and rarely home. But just because you don't see us, does not mean we aren't available to answer all your questions. If you need anything, I always reply to emails & texts immediately.

*Occasionally a 2nd room is also rented, so there may be other guests during your stay. But you would NOT be sharing a bathroom with them.

The Neighborhood

MOVE IT ON UP. The Upper East Side is prestigious and safe. More importantly, famous people have lived here.
Some were real. Some were fake.

Real like Andy Warhol (painted soup cans across the street), Jackie O (jogged at the nearby reservoir) and Barack Obama.

Fakes like the Gossip Girls, The Jeffersons, Carrie Bradshaw and Bernie Maddoff (I said fake, not fictional)

EXPLORE THE AREA. The Met, The Guggenheim and Central Park are all within a 5 to 10 minute walk. There is also a TON of shopping on 86th street.

Getting around

Subway/Metro: 4,5,6 stop is a 4-minute walk.
We are on Lexington avenue. The further away from Lex you stay, the longer the walk to the subway!

Other Things to Note

When you book, you'll receive additional detailed airport transport options

Taxi from LaGuardia*- 15 to 25 min cab ride/ $25+tip
Taxi from JFK* – 28 min cab /$52.00+tip
Taxi from Newark – Ha! Yeah, don’t take a cab from Newark. Unless you’re rich or Donald Trump, in which case we’ll assume you’re trolling AirBnb for real estate research. Otherwise, take Newark Airport Express Bus to Grand Central.

    Although we didn't see much of Sasha (we were out most of the day), she was very friendly and helpful. She left a good guide to the neighbourhood in the room, advised us which metro line to take and gave us a map.
    I lost something while we there and she sent me a message straight away to say it had been handed in to the apartment, saving me a lot of worry.
    We had a fabulous time in NY, thanks for welcoming us.
