My cool, comfortable, quiet one BR apartment has a true city feeling! It comfortably fits two, is 100 paces from beautiful Central Park, has a bright 7th floor south-facing big-city view, cozy kitchen, great shopping & a NY minute to express subways.
The apartment has a bedroom, kitchen/dining, hallway and bathroom. A curtain separates the two main spaces and makes the bedroom a/c more efficient. Views to the south are bright and feature the classic NY skyline at night - there's even ONE tree in central park visible! Curtains shut out unwanted light in the morning so you can sleep in. You could put a third person on the cushions on the floor if you wanted. Kitchen has everything but a dishwasher so you can cook at home; all the pots and pans and knives and silver you'd expect are waiting for your culinary magic. The bathroom is small and the tub is really a standup shower, and the bathroom door is a curtain - so if you need more privacy in the bathroom than a curtain affords, this might not be the right space for you.
Guests have the full use of the space - I'm not there when you rent it!
Interaction with Guests
I will not be there at all.
This apartment is in the most desirable neighborhood in NYC - across the street from the famous Dakota (home to Lauren Bacall, Madonna, John Lennon, and other famous New Yorkers) and just 100 paces to the entrance to Central Park. You're close to the Boat House, the recently restored Tavern On The Green, and you can jog or bike or walk through Central Park every morning or evening. Terrific bagel and coffee and serious shopping abounds. There's a reason all the tour buses visit 72nd and Central Park West!
The apt is a four minute walk to the 72nd St 1/2/3 express stop, and a two minute walk to the 72nd St B/C trains. A few more minutes walk gets you to the 59th St A/B/C/D stop. And of course the neighborhood is littered with Uber and Taxi and city bus services.
Other Things to Note
Building has washer and dryer in the basement. It is truly quiet here, in a way that is surprising given how centrally located it is, with the exception of the occasional fire truck siren or distant (if loud) garbage truck.
The building is quiet; there are pets allowed in the building, so you'll encounter dogs in the elevator going for their walk with their owners. (I will consider a guest with a pet, but this must be discussed in advance - the apartment is not an ideal space for a large dog or a shedding cat, for instance.
Great place. Very quiet clean and comfortable, with lots of light and in a fantastic location. Michael is a great guy, very easy to deal with. I would happily stay here again.
Michael's apartment was extra cozy and just as described. Michael was out of town, but went to great lengths to make sure we were accommodated. The housekeeper, Aureliz, was attentive to any questions that arose during our stay.
Absolutely fantastic experience at Michael's apartment. Quick communication whenever we had a question was very nice. Once we got in the apartment, it was better than described! Very homey and comfortable. The location is perfect and has great views. Half a block to Central Park. We are looking forward to staying here the next time we are in Manhattan.
The pictures from the listing are very accurate! The apt was actually even larger than expected. Michael left lots of notes and was very thorough and welcoming. Definitely recommend this sunny, cozy little stay tucked away right by Central Park West!
Michael was great! Made sure I knew everything about the place. The apartment is very cozy! A little drafty on cold nights but I would def stay there again! I recommend!
Absolutely a pleasure interacting with Michael. The place was everything I hoped it was. He was extremely punctual and on the ball with making sure I understood the more subtle aspects of his place, making things very easy and straight forward. This is a cozy, warm abode not even a block from Central Park for a great price. I would absolutely love to stay here again if Michael would have me.
I have a great time in Michael's apartment! It's very clean, bright and cozy apartment, 1 minute walking distance to Central Park. Michael was nice and helpful. Highly recommended!
I love NYC and Maine and boats and running. I am co-founder of an internet startup because I like making things. Also a big reader, as you'll see from all the books!
