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.
The apt was sunny and clean, just as described in the listing. It is in a great location, 1 block from Central Park, close to the subway stations and 2 grocery stores in walking distance. I highly recommend Mike's apt to anyone visiting NY. Mike was very responsive and easy to communicate with as well. Thanks Mike!
We looked at many places before deciding on Michael's apartment. We are so happy that we made the right choice! He made our first Air BnB experience a great one. Excellent communication, perfect location. We loved being steps from the park and went there each morning. It felt great to be a tourist during the day and then to be able to "come home" at night. Thanks Michael for a perfect place to stay! Kathy & Cory.
Michael est un très bon hôte. De plus il parle un peu francais. Très bon accueil, serviable et de bon conseil. L'appartement est situé au plus proche de 2 stations de métro c'est très pratique! Sa proximité avec central parc fait qu'on a pu si promener un peu chaque jour! Idéal pour les adeptes du jogging ;)
La description de l'appartement est fidèle à celle faite par Michael. Je recommande fortement cet appartement! Merci Michael!
Apartment was great! Michael left the key with a local business and we had no problem picking it up. Michael called to make sure everything was in order, which it was. The space was more than sufficient for my son and I. Thanks for a great stay!
Michael was helpful and flexible, and communication with him was very easy. His place was cozy and comfortable and the location was great. Definitely recommended!
The apartment is great - brilliant location, a stone's throw from Central Park and the subway. The view from the bedroom is stunning, and despite the central location, it's very quiet. There is a comfy bed and Michael provided everything we could possibly need. The pictures are a very accurate reflection of what the apartment is like, and Michael gave us a really warm welcome. We'd definitely recommend this apartment.
Location was great! Close to subways and Central Park just down the block. Michael was attentive, courteous, thorough, and above all, responsive! Hassle free stay. Would recommend.
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!
