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.

The Space

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.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • We loved the location in NY. Irving place is a very nice street: quiet and lively at the same time. It is near Union Square which we loved too very much. Metro close by as well as all other amenities you want. The small studio was nice too. It has a good feel and being at the backside there's hardly any street noise reaching the room. Airco, which was needed when we were in the room (it was 35 degrees Celcius during our stay), makes a lot of noise but I suppose that is normal in NYC. Very spacious bed! We didn't really use either the kitchen nor the terrace, but it is great that it is available.

  • L'appartement de Jack est idéalement situé pour accéder très facilement et rapidement à tous les endroits incontournables de NYC.
    Rare à New York, la petite terrasse est vraiment agréable pour commencer la journée par un bon petit déjeuner.
    La literie (Kingsize !) excellente et confortable nous a permis de bien récupérer de nos longues journées de marche à pied (plus de 70 miles parcourus en 10 jours), et Jack est vraiment très réactif et attentif à toutes les demandes.
    Bref, un séjour magique et inoubliable !

  • Awesome location, crystal-clear instructions and travel tips, great value.
    I would recommend Jack's studio to anyone who wishes to stay in this most charming of all Manhattan neighborhoods.
    I lived in NY 8 years and do not believe there is a more charming street in the entire city than Irving Place.

  • Jack's apartment is terrific! Just what you'd expect, want, and hope for in a NY brownstone. I won't repeat what everyone has said, except to reiterate, comfortable bed, cool decor, great having the roof deck, wifi, tv, amenities all great. Hope to stay there again on our next NYC visit. IMHO, the location is the best in NY. Staying in walking distance from Union Square, the Village, Flatiron and Little Italy/Lower East side and away from the tourist crowds and big buildings keeps you sane, but the subway to everywhere is very close. Great coffee downstairs and restaurants all around. Jack was very available and responsive.

  • My second lovely stay at Gramercy Park studio. Lovely comfy bed. Excellent, responsive host. Fabulous neighbourhood. So close to Union Square subway for all your sight-seeing desires. Wonderful compendium of information about the area and it's amenities. Everything is as described, with your own lovely terrace for fresh air and privacy. For a special experience, pop across the road to Pure Food and Wine for the Degustation - $69.00 for about 10 courses of raw vegan delights, gorgeously concocted and presented. Exceelent experience. Thank you JC.

  • I adored my stay at Jack's apartment. A cosy, serene, safe "home away from home" slice of heaven, with the whole of amazing NYC bustling just outside the front door. Just as described - everything you could need or want. Lovely comfortable bed with quality linens. Communication with Jack was instant, clear and extremely helpful. I loved the atmosphere in the apartment with books and personal and interesting photographs - just like being one of the family! Really looking forward to my next stay. An exemplary host. Thank you so much, JC.
