About this listing
Lovely apartment near the Natural History Museum. Great neighborhood with great restaurants. Ground floor back of a brownstone. Nice for people who want privacy and do not want to hike up stairs! Very quiet with small outside space. Near the 1and 2 and A and C trains. Near Fairway. Flee Market on the corner on Sundays! If you know NYC you know this is a very good location.
My apartment is not suitable for more than two people. I get a lot of inquiries for more than two and I would just rather not do that. There is a sofa bed. But it's better for a couple or just one person.
No additional guests. No smoking in the apartment. No parties. Regarding early arrivals; Check in time is 2pm or later ( unless it is convenient for me to check you in earlier) The apartment must be vacated by noon the next day. It's just gotten so busy that I need time to clean up.
Barbara is a very nice and cooperative person. We met on time and she explained all the need to know with a big smile. Although the apartment is luck of natural light, the small privet terrace is a wonderful place to relax with a cup of coffee. The location is the best in NYC. We will be back.
Barbara was a delightful host. Although out of town, she arranged for us to get keys to the apartment, left helpful information about the place and neighborhood, and quickly and warmly responded to any questions we had during our stay. The apartment was cozy, comfortable, quiet, had excellent wi-fi, and was located in a great UWS neighborhood easily accessible to the park, subway, restaurants and shops. It was a perfect base for another fabulous stay in NYC. Thank you, Barbara!
Barbara was such a good host. She wasn't in town by the time we arrived, but sent us the keys ahead of time with clear instructions on how to get to her place. She also gave us a list of instructions on checking out, some restaurant recommendations, and things like that. She was immediately available at all times via text message or phone call.
The rooms were clean and tidy with all that we needed. The place is in such a great neighborhood and so peacefully quiet, which is a good find in NYC.
I would definitely stay here again if I had the chance.
I rented Barbara's apartment for my parents-in-law during the week of my wedding. This could have been complicated--they are elderly and a little nervous about the city--but everything about the experience was wonderful. The apartment is lovely, cozy, quiet, well-furnished and ideally located (the little backyard deck, a true rarity in Manhattan, was a big hit). Barbara herself is a warm and generous person, and her friendliness made this experience even nicer. I'm very grateful to have found this listing, and unconditionally recommend it.
It's the second time we've been to Barbara's apartment and we recommend it to everybody. The location is perfect and Barbara was very helpful and responsive. The apartment is comfortable, clean and contains all of the necessary amenities.
Barbara’s apartment is classic NYC, in a great neighborhood. It is quiet and contains all of the necessary amenities. Barbara responds very quickly to questions. I had a positive experience and would enjoy staying here again.
We really enjoyed our stay in Barbara's cozy apartment. The location is amazing, with the Museum of Natural History and Central Park so nearby.
