About this listing
There are no cleaning fees. And this is not a share. You will have the flat to yourself.
This large, very sunny one-bedroom apartment measures about 650 square-foot in a lovely brownstone building on Manhattan's Upper West Side.
It's located just a few steps from Central Park in a charming neighborhood filled with wonderful cafes, bars and restaurants. The flat sits on a very quiet, tree-lined street that's dotted with prewar Beaux-Arts and landmark brownstone buildings.
The three - room flat has air conditioning and includes WiFi and TV. It has a newly renovated kitchen and wonderfully renovated bath in a well-appointed, very clean and quiet apartment with modern decor. The apartment has a full-size bed, hardwood floors, 10-foot high ceilings and plenty of natural light. All utilities, linens, towels etc are included in the price. There are no extra cleaning fees. This is not a share. You will have it to yourself.
The apartment is centrally located to many subway stations and not far from Lincoln Center and the Museum of Natural History.
If you've seen a leafy, residential Manhattan neighborhood depicted on TV or in the movies, there's a decent chance it was the Upper West Side. It's where Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks lived in You've Got Mail, where Jerry made his home on Seinfeld (and in real life) and where Liz Lemon lived on 30 Rock. Chuck Bass owned a hotel there on Gossip Girl.
Most visitors ans locals love the local flavor and the fact the area attracts people from around the world and across all generations.
The Upper West Side is bracketed by Central Park and Riverside Park. There's culture, in the form of the American Museum of Natural History, the Beacon Theatre and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. And plenty of shopping, eating and nightlife as well. Read on for details about what to see and do.
There are several easy subway and bus connections in and around the apartment and the UWS. Take the 1, 2 or 3 , or C or B trains to 86th Street. The red line (1, 2, 3 trains) stops along Broadway. The B and C lines stops along Central Park West.
This is a non-smoking apartment. Pets are not allowed.
Space was as seen in picture, very simple. Station to downtown was close which we really liked and just a few steps to Central Park! Host was excellent with detailing how to arrive and what do to when we left it was easy to do.
Staying in Joseph's place was quite enjoyable as it was very clean, quiet and also ideally located in the Upper West Side (across the road from Central Park). Subway, restaurants and grocery stores are all within walking distance. All in all, the choice of this place - in a beautiful brownstone type of building, is probably one of the best choices you can make for your trip to NYC. Joseph also makes every effort to communicate well and to let you know things in advance so you don't have to worry about anything :)
My daughters and I booked Joseph's apartment last minute and had a terrific stay. The apartment -- located on a lovely, typical block of Upper West Side brownstones -- was neat and clean and a perfect fit for us. It's just a couple of blocks from the subway, incredibly close to Central Park, and convenient to many city attractions. Joseph was also very helpful throughout the entire booking process and even helped us navigate a late check out for me and the girls. A great fit for us and a good price and west side location for Manhattan. Further, my kids loved pretending we were "real" New Yorkers in an apartment all of our own, versus being in a hotel.
L'appartement était tout à fait conforme à la description et aux photos figurant sur le site.
Il est très bien situé, dans une maison de ville typique de l'Upper West Side, à deux pas de Central Park.
Joseph est très disponible et réactif, il était facile de communiquer avec lui pendant le séjour qu'il a constamment cherché à rendre le plus agréable possible.
Excellent location literally steps from Central Park. Apartment is as described. It is quite comfortable. It is a 3 floor walk up so if you have luggage then it can be fun luging it up and then down again ! We were well aware of this when we booked and it was quite a laugh doing it ! The apartment itself is quite comfortable for short stays. Coordination with Joseph was smooth and very cordial. He was very helpful and even came by to fix a faulty light bulb. We would surely recommend staying here again !
Joseph's apt is great. It's clean, fresh, and good value and price for Manhattan. And the best thing is apt only half block away from the park. The checkin was smooth without any issue. Joseph's communication with us before the trip was perfect. Overall, we enjoyed everything about our stay at this place.
Joseph, was very responsive and accommodating at the last minute. The apartment was bright and as advertised. The location was great, and the whole experience was very easy.

About the Host, Joseph
I'm a journalist and split my time between New York and Europe, where I lived and worked for several years. When I travel, I occasionally rent out my apartment for short stays. It's a wonderful little apartment in a terrific section of Manhattan.
