About This Listing
Prime area of Central Park just steps away! World famous gourmet food markets and high end shopping around the corner. Best cinema in city two blocks away (often hosts red carpet premieres). Horses and carriages, pedicabs, finest reviewed restaurants--all within walking distance!
Charming studio in a lovely little townhouse. It is four flights up, sunny, North facing apartment--it is quiet--you forget you are in the city! Yet, it is in the heart of Manhattan's Upper West Side, five blocks to Lincoln Center, 11 blocks to The American Museum of Natural History. It is within easy walking distance to Central Park, Riverside Park, Lincoln Center, Columbus Circle and so much more. Major subway hub two blocks away! You'll be at Macys in ten minutes on the train! The block is residential, safe, and very quiet at night.
The generous sized apartment faces north, but has pretty good light because it is on the top floor of the building. This apartment is old, vintage we like to say, dating from1937, but well-maintained, clean and comfortable. There is new paint throughout and freshened floors. The kitchenette has just been renovated with a new cabinet unit (plates, cups and utensils, all new). It is a 4th story walk-up with no doorman. It is rear facing, thus extremely quiet--despite being in such a vibrant area! (see reviews).
It has a fully working kitchenette (oven, stove, sink) and full sized refrigerator/microwave. It is furnished with a queen bed, vintage dining table and two comfortable upholstered chairs. The bathroom is NOT renovated, but is cleaned fastidiously between every guest. Tiles, tub and sink are unrenovated, but you can be assured the bathroom is VERY clean. There is a TV, DVD player, and WIFI included in the price. There is an alarm clock so you don't oversleep and miss how gorgeous the neighborhood is in the morning! We provide coffee and coffee maker (though Starbucks around the corner, too! ) We also provide shampoo and conditioner (helpful for airline travelers)--though 24 hour, new, drugstore (CVS) directly across the street should you prefer to buy your favorite toiletries upon arrival. Please note: The favorite Trader Joe's Market is only two short blocks away!
We will greet you personally and live on site. Though you will have privacy during your stay.
Of course we have the apartment professionally cleaned between guests!

The immediate neighborhood is chock full of great restaurants, theaters, parks (including Central Park) and museums. The apartment is 2 blocks from the West 72nd St. subway station on the 1/2/3 lines. If you are familiar with NYC transit, you know this is a tremendous luxury.
Please note we charge a $75 fee for check-in after 11:00PM.
House rules are:
- No smoking
- No loud noise after 9PM, and be courteous of others living here and aware of noise all around since this is an old building with thin walls.
- No pets
There is an iron-clad, no-exception, strenuously-enforced no smoking policy in effect for the entire building. Other than that, we're pretty easy to get along with.
We very much enjoyed our stay in this studio. The place really is quiet with windows out to the back, and with no neighbours on top; a very positive surprise given it is only a 3 min walk from 72th Street metro station. It is equipped with everything we needed (kitchen, coffee machine, hair dryer etc.), and we were couldn't have feld more welcomed (with a bar of delicious chocolate and a bottle of water) and comfortable. Highly recommended!
Welcome was...really welcome. Help getting suitcase upstairs. Everything clean and in order. Great location. The studio is comfortable if a bit in need of some minor repairs and some updating. When there were wi-fi problems Ted worked hard to get things working again. Overall a comfortable stay.
My Parents had the best time by you. They said everything was clean and enjoyable from the moment that they arrived.. They said your hospitality and customer service was phenomenal and that they would recommend there friends back home to stay with you. I thank you on behalf of them for hosting them. Thank you again
Contact with Ted/Karen worked very well: Quick and efficient. Appartment as on pictures. We were greeted with some Swiss chocolate- nice welcome.
The Studio is sufficint in size for 2 people, bed comfortable, everything in kitchen one needs for cooking.
The bath is very small and the shower has good water pressure.
The location is great: Some 20min to the Lincoln Center and Central Park. Neighbourhood felt safe. On the corner to broadway are many quick eateries (good pizza) and a Trader Joe supermarket. 72nd metro station is 5 min walk.
Would stay here again and highly recommend.
Ted is a very accommodating host..very easy to get a hold of. This us our second time staying at one of Ted's apts and we were very satisfied this time also. The apt is exactly how it was described. The bed was comfortable and the neighborhood pretty quiet. Thank you for a great stay !
My third time at this lovely studio, this time with my wife Sonja. Again, the place was totally ready, everything very clean, beautiful fluffy towels, and even a big chocolate bar on the pillow. An A+ location and apartment.
This was our second visit to Ted and Karen's Quiet Studio. Just home
from a wonderful week long stay there. The neighborhood is great, full of real New Yorkers, functional shops, very convenient to the 1,2,3 subway and Crosstown (email hidden)e unit involves some steps and it has some age to it, like me, but for us it is a good trade off for ultra quiet, and homey feeling. Good frig, functional range, plenty of hot water in the shower....Karen was very repsonsive when we had a problem with the backup air mattress. If you are a "traveller" this place will be tops.

About the Host, Ted
Hi, we are seasoned and stable New Yorkers who love living in the small building we own on Manhattan's Upper West Side. It is a brownstone here in the Lincoln Center neighborhood-- the heart of the Upper West Side--one of the best neighborhoods in the city. We will be present in the building during your stay, making our rentals conform with city ordinances. Our friendly, secure, convenient building will have all the amenities you need. We like to make our guests feel that this is their home away from home and try to be accessible should they have questions on sightseeing, restaurants etc. We hope you will choose to stay in our lovely, owner-occupied, building! Karen, our manager, handles all communication on this website and she is happy to discuss a rental with you!
