Apartment is just one express subway stop from Times Square (5 minutes!), two express stops from Madison Square Garden (7 minutes!), and no more than 15-25 minutes via subway from all NYC attractions (Statue of Liberty, Empire State Bldg, Rockefeller Center, 5th Ave, etc.)

This is a sunny duplex (2-floor) three bedroom apartment with one room available to guests. Two of the hosts stay on the second floor and one host will be in an adjacent room. A friendly CAT roams the premises, but he can stay upstairs if guests prefer (**Please be aware for those who have allergies**).

For larger groups up to 4 people, we have a comfy couch and an air mattress available in the living room (w/ AC too). Fresh linens and towels provided (extra fee applied for larger groups). A clean bathroom will be SHARED with one host. Complimentary WiFi, cable TV on 100" projector screen in living room, shared kitchen w/ various appliances, and use of roof deck w/ grill!! You can enjoy drinks with a view, relax on the hammock, and are welcome to any fresh herbs in our garden. Laundry access in basement.

As three young professionals (2 guys & 1 girl), we work during the day, but maintain a laid-back atmosphere and are always happy to meet new people and share our knowledge of NYC. We know great places for all budgets and tastes, both around the neighborhood and in the city (including outer boroughs) and will be happy to share suggestions with you!

This is a comfortable, clean, and charming duplex apartment on the third floor of a walk-up (no elevator). We are also the only tenants in the building which makes the place amazingly private and quiet in the hustle-and-bustle of NYC. Hard wood floors, high ceilings, exposed brick, fireplace, and outdoor space. If you want to visit NYC and have the New York experience, this is the place to be!

Note: We are a strictly non-smoking household. We understand if guests choose to smoke. However, if this impedes on the cleanliness of the room or the smell lingers, we will charge a fine accordingly for extra cleaning costs.

Interaction with Guests

We are usually busy ourselves with work or night classes. The apartment will usually be all yours during the day and we are respectful at night when someone is home.

The Neighborhood

The UPPER WEST SIDE is a beautiful and classy neighborhood with great eats, nice bars, and easy access to museums, subway, and Central Park. The area is very safe and quiet at night when you want to sleep, and less than 10 minutes away by subway from NYC tourist hustle-and-bustle.

  • This place was awesome. My friend and I stayed here for a couple of days to see a show. We felt very welcomed from the get go. Very clean and comfortable and quite. Crystal really paid attention to detail and it made for a very nice stay. I would most definitely stay again.

  • OK. 3.5/5
    La chambre est correcte mais sans plus. C'est petit mais suffisant pour une semaine si on ne reste pas trop longtemps. La localisation est parfaite, a 5 min de central park, a cote du metro et du supermarché. Les "collocs" sont gentils et agréables.
    Gros bémol, la propreté de la cuisine et de la salle de bain...

  • We had a great time! The appartment was very comfortable and clean and the hosts was friendly and helpful. It's very close to the Central Park and close by there are good possibilities for shopping and having a delicious bagel- breakfast or fabulous walnutcookies!
    To conclude I can recommend this lodging anyway!

  • Great hosts, great location. We will come again!

  • Everything you've read or are reading about Crystal on Airbnb is true and much more! Crystal, Dave, and Mark were friendly and courteous during my entire stay. Visiting NY for 7 days solo for the first time can be challenging. They were nothing but helpful in letting me know several great locations and best routes. This fun bunch even went out of there way to hang out with me and get some great eats when there was free time! Crystal went above and beyond her hostess duties when she became aware of my unexpected weather emergency flight cancelation out of jfk, and accomodated me by working out an emergency extra day of stay. (Thank you so much for the huge save Crystal!) There are more than enough reasons why I highly recommend Crystal and her very convenient & charming apartment. An overall 5 star experience!

  • Pros: The apartment is in a great location for Central Park and quick transportation to any area in the city. The room top garden is an awesome feature and really makes a difference in New York. The apartment and room backs onto a courtyard so the room is very quiet.

    Cons: Not really a con but you need to walk through Crystals room to get outside to the patio which feels slightly invasive.

    Definitely a keeper.

  • An ideal NYC location and very very comfortable stay. Crystal is running a warm and friendly place, not so common in dear NYC, and my room was very quiet and comfortable - the quiet also not so common in NYC.n allWith the use of the kitchen and living (plus huge screen tv), I felt right at home. But as soon as I left the building, there was so much, so convenient in all directions. The metro is only a couple blocks away as are yoga and swimming and CPW. I came for a family function, was inure to my kids, close to the fun and could get around. We even were able to figure out the parking, a surprise bene…
    Thank you,Crystal.

  • Hi everyone! We stayed at the apartment for Christmas holidays and it was awesome! The flat-mates are very nice and we had a great time with them. The apartment is very well located and in good conditions. The room is good for 2 people and you can use the kitchen and others commodities during the stay :)
    I hope to come back again sometime !!!
