About This Listing
This is a very comfortable one bedroom apartment available for rent :-) The train and bus are just two to three very short blocks away :-)
This is a one bedroom apartment. All the pictures above are accurate and taken by airbnb. This apartment is practically perfect! It has all you'll need :-)) and it's just comfortable and feels like home! It has three big windows in the front and three big windows in the back :-)) You can either come here while your in transition to a new apartment or just lay back and vacation! It's an apartment that really works for whatever occasion you might have. Our area's proximity to mid-town Manhattan, makes it one of New York's most desirable residential neighborhoods. What sets the Upper East apart from all other areas is it's closeness to Madison Avenue & Park Avenue. Madison Avenue is famously known as the world's premier shopping district for the finest food, opulent merchandise, luxury lodging and services available anywhere. Between 57th Street and 100 Street, Madison Avenue is identified as "the fashionable road" In this area is where most of the very well known fashion designers and upper class hair salons are located. Other areas may have their impressive retail strips, but Madison Avenue is the world's most famous retail address. Park Avenue, has prominent astounding architectures, as`well as great antique and painting galleries. The upper part of Park Avenue (around the 90's) is known for it's wealthy neighborhood with landmark buildings, one block over you have the museum mile, with all the major museums. In our area there are a lot of multicultural heritage (Spanish,Turkish,Italian American, French, African-American and Indian) restaurants. One of our favorite things to do is walk down Madison Avenue, read the menus posted outside and just dine. In addition, we love to check out the many beautiful and fashionable boutiques by many famous designers. On 5th Avenue, we have the famous Central Park and down in Harlem there's the famous Apollo theater, and of cause the famous Sylvia's restaurant! You can walk back home to our cozy apartment with all the amenities that one needs. It's an old renovated Victorian Brownstone in the Spaha area of East Harlem. This apartment is on the 2nd floor of the brownstone. It has three huge windows in the front and two huge windows in the back in addition to a full size balcony. The bed is a Queen size Tempur-Pedic mattress and in the living room you have a leather sofa bed that is also a tempur-pedic mattress. Fall is the best time to come to NYC the weather is just awesome! The restaurants are just in walking distance and have been reviewed by the NY Times as one of many fabulous places to eat:)) The train is just two blocks away and you have the #6 line that will take you straight to 42nd, 50th street, Wall Street, SOHO and the Village just to name a few.
In the apartment you have internet and cable. We live here :-) on the ground floor apartment, and at your reach anytime of day or night! :))
You have access to your host anytime :))

Sehr schönes Appartment, dass der Beschreibung bei airbnb 100%ig entspricht. Die Lage des Appartments ist verkehrstechnisch sehr günstig gelegen. Mit der Subway hat man eine gute Anbindung innerhalb Manhattans als auch vom/zum JFK. Verschiedene Restaurants und Supermärkte sind in der Nähe. Auch der Central Park ist fußläufig in wenigen Minuten erreichbar.
Die Gastgeber Blanca und Teddy sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Sie empfangen einen herzlich und mit offenen Armen. Wir können die beiden nur weiter empfehlen. Vielen Dank nochmal für die schöne Zeit bei euch :-)
Blanca & Teddy's apartment is really great and they are great hosts. We came in close to midnight and they not only stayed up, but we warm and friendly and helpful. They explained the public transport system (a great help to us), they were never intrusive but always ready to help if we needed it. We would happily stay with them again.
Very roomy and clean studio. Nearby subway statino and five minutes walk to Central Park. Teddy was very helpful, nice and gives us many suggestions. A very good solution for enjoying New York!
Blanca es una perfecta anfitriona. Nos sentimos como en casa, y cualquier duda, ella o su marido Tedy nos la aclaraban encantados. Recomiendo este apartamento 100%.
If you are looking for a place to stay in NYC, LOOK NO FURTHER! Our stay with Blanca and Teddy was just amazing. The apt was much larger than it appears in the pictures. It is spotlessly clean and well-kept. We arrived nearly three hours later then we expected - there was a blizzard so our plane was late. It was no problem with Blanca and Teddy, we tried to get them updated on our estimated arrival. They were very understanding, we felt comfortable and it was no problem at all showing up late. When we arrived, Teddy was there as Blanca didn't make it back home because of the blizzard, too. He showed us the apt and gave as a short overview over the subway map, nearest shops, etc. The moment we entered the apt we felt welcome and at home. During our stay, when we came back in the evening, it was really like coming home, just loved the apt. There's everything you need (towels, linen, kitchen tools, wifi, etc.) that you need to enjoy your stay. Teddy even drove as around the town one night to show us the beauty of Manhattan. When we left for the plane back home, he drove us to the next subway station for the E train we had to take. Amazing!!
A word about the neighbourhood: We felt absolutely safe and comfortable there. The neighbourhood is great, all kind of people, but we never met someone unfriendly. Going around the streets even at night when we came back home with the subway (btw: subway station only 5 minutes away, bus station you just have to step outside) was no problem and we never had to worry.
Would I choose this location again? ABSOLUTELY! Great apt, great neighbourhood and the most amazing hosts you can imagine. So we surely will come back.
A big thanks and hugs to Blanca and Teddy. You made our stay in this great city a not-forgettable experience. THANKS!
We recommend this apt to our friends, and some of them have already booked a stay with Blanca and Teddy ;)
Thank you!!! It's very easy to be a good host when you have absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!! people like you and Marina ;) Your the BEST!!! ;)) And that's why wherever you go you will receive the same reaction from any host, because you are an absolutely beautiful couple, For sure!
The apartment is very spacious and well equiped. The location is pretty close to the subway and there is good coffee and others types of shops around. Blanca's place enabled us to get a good taste of NY, will surely miss it.
The apartment fulfilled our expectations completely. Well located and well communicated (Subway station was very near) and very comfortable. It was sufficiently equipped to make it cozy and warm. Anything we could need was available in the shops of the neighborhood (El Barrio) which as long as everybody there speak Spanish made us feel almost like at home. On top of that, Blanca and Teddy were superb hosts, always there for anything we may need. I definitely recommend Blanca's apartment when visiting NYC.
