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 space

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.

Guest access

Guests have the full use of the space - I'm not there when you rent it! When I am out of town I provide access to the keys using a service called KeyCafe that allows guests to pick up and drop off keys 24 hours a day. This accommodates very early and very late arrivals and departures.

Interaction with guests

I will not be there at all during your stay. Normal checkin is after three pm and checkout is by eleven am, to provide time for the housekeeping. I try to accommodate the needs of guests arriving earlier or departing later, but I always need to check the prior and following guests' needs as well, of course.

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.

No smoking
Not suitable for pets
No parties or events
Not safe or suitable for children (0-12 years)
Check in is anytime after 3PM

No parties. No smoking. No pets. No loud music or talking after 10 pm. These are all "house rules" as defined by Airbnb - if you break them you may be asked to leave with no chance of a refund. Please be sure you understand the "strict cancellation" terms on Airbnb, because I use them. Let me know if you have questions! I typically respond within an hour - sometimes within minutes. Also, as it is an old building, walls are not super thick. My neighbor is super quiet - but she is bummed out by loud guests. Please be sensitive to the neighbors' need for quiet. Thanks!

We stayed in three different Airbnb's this road trip and Michaels place felt very much like home! We were extremely comfortable being there. The location is incredible and he had places highlighted on a map stuck on the fridge which helped out a lot since we were clueless of a lot of places. I would recommend this place in New York to anyone! And for us the key cafe was not a hassle at all which I saw people complain about.

This place is great! If you love New York, want to be in the city, but hate the touristy crowds, this is where you should be. Michael had everything prepared and the place was full of personality. Books galore and a great view. The bed was a futon, but it was amazingly comfortable and two of us had no problem sharing. Michael was even super kind and accommodating when we didn't plan very well (oops). If you're considering this place - do it!

This apt is located in an amazing neighborhood right next to Central Park. It is beautiful and quite spacious for this area too. Much thanks, Michael!
