Just one block from Gramercy Park (the only private park in Manhattan) is this unique, antique-furnished, and romantic 325 square foot dream sublet. Centrally located, a few short blocks from most subways, it as quiet as a country oasis.
In the building where George Axelrod wrote "The 7 Year Itch" starring Marilyn Monroe, in the hip (Uma Thurman, Julia Roberts) and historic (Teddy Roosevelt, Edith Wharton) neighborhood of Gramercy Park, a few short blocks from Union Square (Barnes & Noble, the Strand, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, Farmer’s Market), Madison Park (Shake Shack, 11 Madison Park), most subway lines, some of the finest restaurants in New York (Gramercy Tavern, Union Square Cafe, Casa Mono, Pure Food & Wine), and, of course, Gramercy Park itself (the only private park in Manhattan), is a unique, antique-furnished, and romantic 325 square foot third-floor studio that acts like a one bedroom, with restored kitchen and bathroom, hard wood floors, tall ceilings, closets, AC, fireplace, a 39-inch HD cable TV (with Roku capability), free wireless, a huge collection of literary classics, towels, linens, china, hairdryer, a full range of cooking and eating utensils, coffee-maker, toaster, filtered water, a Swedish Duxiana king-sized bed with 500 thread count goose down comforter, and the kicker, a 250 square foot terrace -- with barbecue and wrought-iron furniture -- overlooking a traditional Manhattan courtyard. It doesn't get better than this anywhere in the city. The dream sublet for the right person(s). Your Airbnb rate covers all rent, taxes, fees, utilities, garbage, TV, local telephone, high-speed modem, color printer, Xerox, scanner, plus an insider's guide to the neighborhood written by renowned travel writer, yours truly. A comparable place on Irving Place is $500/night without the amenities offered here.
If you or someone you know is clean, quiet, and responsible, and looking for a dream sublet in the heart of Manhattan -- but which is as quiet as a country oasis -- please send name, phone number and two references. The flat books fast and far in advance.
Guests have access to everything in the flat.

You will adore this property.
Jack's apartment met all of our needs and then some. The location was just right. Quiet and convenient. The space was exactly as described. I would definitely stay at Jack's place again!
Me and my girlfriend had a lovely visit at Jack's wonderful apartment. The location is simply outstanding - you have a walking distance to all Manhattan and being close to Union Square is amazing. The apartment itself is clean, tidy, very welcoming and charming. The bed, as many others have commented, is probably the best bed we have ever slept in!
From the beginning, Jack has been very responsive and clear about how the apartment works and what to expect from it. We would recommend it to anyone considering going to the Big Apple!
Second time staying at Jack's flat. Perfect NY location and biggest bed ever.
Our host, Jack, gave us extensive information about the particulars of the apartment, the neighborhood, and traveler's tips in general to NYC. These were very helpful for persons not familiar with the city! The apartment was warm and comfortable; it had all we needed and more, in a great neighborhood that was convenient for us. We found it to be clean, quiet and welcoming! The perfect stay!Thanks Jack!
The location is both quiet and quaint. Our experience was excellent and Jack provided more than enough information to us to ensure our time there was fantastic. It was our first time using Airbnb and could not have gone better. Without question, I would stay here again when visiting NYC.
Our host is very kind and careful. We're grateful for the attention and affection with us. Our days in NYC were a sort of dream. The apartment is cozy, comfortable and well maintained. Above, it has the ideal size to us, a quiet and friendly atmosphere. The spot could not be better.
We were so happy to have stayed over for 9 nights.
Thank you very much, Jack!

I prefer to keep this private. I will reveal all once a reservation is booked. For now, I will say that I am a writer for several American publications.
Going on ten years, I have had hundreds of very satisfied guests from CL, Perfect Places, and now the wonderful Airbnb.
