About This Listing
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.
I loved staying a Michael's place. Clean, airy, quiet with a nice view of the mid-town skyline. It's wonderful to stay so close to central park for running and walking at night. Conveniently located between two major subway stops and easy walking access to shops and restaurants only a few blocks away. Michael's apartment is at the top of my list of places to stay in NYC.
His apartment, it is wide, luminous, has a spectacular sight of the buildings and in addition one great personality, it was as having been in my home.
Even if the initial contact was very bad, because, we do not manage he sings to in spite of it being corordinado. The stamp was not working, therefore, the times that I went to his apartment was touching the stamp and this one it was not feeling to sorrow that I was below, but once, in view of the explanations of the case, the situation flew perfectly.
Michael, is a great person, generously and very.
Thank you Michael.
Michael was very communicative and effective in arranging the visit. We arrived late, and he tracked our flights and met us at the apartment. The apartment was as described, well-located and quiet. It had everything we needed for our stay in the city.
