GUESTS ADDITIONAL TO YOUR PARTY ARE NOT ALLOWED in the building or the apartment; the doormen will not allow them to enter
Arrival: If you come with a lot of luggage, the building maintains luggage carts. The building will not allow you to use them yourself. The doormen will load the luggage onto the cart and take it up via the service elevator. You ride in the regular elevator. The doormen will then bring the luggage to your door and will help you unload. They should be tipped $5 for this service.
If you order food or dry cleaning delivery, the doormen will call up on the house phone to let you know it is coming up.
Julia and Shelley were great hosts. Our family felt immediately at home in their lovely and spacious apartment. The neighborhood is lively and interesting, as well as convenient for exploring Manhattan. Everything was as described in the listing, if not better! Strongly recommended.
There was a lovely bottle of champagne to greet us. The apartment was neat, well stocked, and close to a lot of things. We quickly felt like we were in our own place. We actually were able to cook Thanksgiving dinner there, and then go see the Macy's parade. The size of the apartment was about right for the eight of us.
Lots of good Restaurants, with in walking distance to where we needed to go .
Julia and Shelley made us feel very welcome and right at home. The apartment was much bigger than I expected and was very comfortable. The location was perfect for our desires. It was close to the park, lots of shopping and wonderful restaurants. I would love to do it all over again.
The apartment of Julia & Shelly was really great. Everything as described, clean, comfortable and both of them assist with every questions we had like recommendation for a nice restaurant. The communication via airbnb was very good. And I loved the view in the morning waking up! The apartment is perfectly located closed to the Central Park. We can recommend this apartment for everybody who is visiting NY.
Great location, well presented and the apartment had everything we needed for our young family. Recommended.

Musician, Skier, Racquetball player, business owner. I love to play violin for special events & dances and I learned how to ski before I was born. Both are ways to celebrate! Although NYC is my home base, I love to travel to fabulous ski houses and fill them up with new & old friends. It's fun to be both a host and a traveler, meeting new people and seeing new places.
