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).

Jack's place was easy my first ABnB experience, and it was wonderful. The location is fantastic; great restaurants are within a few steps. The apartment was incredibly quiet, a true Manhattan oasis. Looking forward to returning.
Au top ! Nous avons beaucoup apprécié l'appartement de Jack, la belle bibliothèque et tout le reste ! Par ailleurs, l'appartement est très très bien situé. Merci à Jack pour sa disponibilité. Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir !
After considering a large number of decent but uninspiring offerings on AirBnB for New York, I came across this particular studio and knew it would be just right. Such a personal space seems to be a rarity on AirBnB, and the magic of it made all the difference to my trip in NY. Bear in mind, if you require luxury and sleekness above heart, charm, and exuberance, you might not quite 'get' the immense appeal of this flat. The generosity of the host and the sense of home makes it easy to overlook the plumbing ideosyncracies and the patchiness of the seals where tubs and counters join to the walls. The neighbourhood is utterly perfect, the smell of fresh coffee from the coffee house beneath makes ascending the staircase a joy, and it's unbelievably quiet throughout the day and night, both outside and within the building itself. The bed is HUGE and there is still plenty of room to move about and store things and hang out. The kitchen is somewhat difficult to prepare anything complicated in, but if you keep your cooking to simple items, you won't come to grief--just imagine you're in a campervan and draw upon your resourcefulness rather than get frustrated with its limitations and awkward layout. And there wasn't a single cockroach in sight, which is something I've never experienced in New York! I would certainly stay here again, and if I were ever to buy a pied-a-terre in The City, this is exactly the kind of place I'd seek. Bravo.
I stayed at Jack's place for a week in February and would recommend this place to anyone coming to New York. It's in the perfect location to explore both uptown and downtown. Gramercy itself is beautiful and has an array of great restaurants and bars. Jacks apartment has a whole lot of charm and was lovely and warm. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the terrace was a lovely area to relax and enjoy the NY skyline. Jack was very accommodating and responsive to any questions I had. He provided a list of bars, restaurants and attractions of the neighborhood which was very helpful. Would definitely stay here again when visiting NY. Thanks jack
Absolutely fantastic apartment! Really contributed to the great time experienced in New York. Very clean and comfortable and just a great place to come back to after a long day in the city. Would stay again for sure.
We have just spent the most wonderful week in Jack's apartment. The space was absolutely as advertised and provided a warm and peaceful space for us to return to after our days exploring NYC. The weather was a bit wild so having a central location with easy access to the subway and every amenity was very important. We felt part of the community by the time we left and can't wait to return. Thank you for your generosity Jack.
The apartment was great everything about it, the price, location and the very home like feel it has. It is a couple of minutes walk to the nearest subway which is good. Everything you need is there coffee machine, toaster plenty of plates cups etc. there is a great balcony aswell. we were provided with very detailed easy instructions and recommendations from restaurants to nightlife. I would recommend this place to anyone and I would love to stay there again.
Jack was a great host. We were really impressed that he communicated with us very promptly when we had a small problem with the loo. He was on the phone immediately helping us to sort out the issue and me and my daughter were very very grateful for his help. He also sent someone around to check that the problem was sorted out. The true test of a host is whether they can sort out problems when there is a hiccup, and Jack did. Thank you. The apartment was perfect for us. Cosy and clean and in the most wonderful location. We felt very comfortable and secure. The bed was a dream to sleep in with lovely linen and the flat itself was really very quiet. We had the luxury of a great shower with hot water, and wifi and television and the cutest cafe downstairs where a coffee and bagel in the morning was a perfect start to the day. Having said that we had a great coffee maker and other kitchen equipment at our disposal but we just chose to go out.We had a delightful 10 days and felt like true locals and simply did not want to leave. I would definitely contact Jack to stay in his apartment again and in fact my son has already booked it for the future.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely space- it's in a great location, and has everything you could want in a NYC apartment. Quiet, comfortable and well-heated. Jack was an excellent host and made the whole renting process a breeze. We'd definitely stay here again!
This apartment is very well situated in the desirable Gramercy Park area. It is well appointed, and has a terrace for outdoor dining. The apartment was quite clean. It is not a luxury flat, but is not billed as one, and it is very good value for the money. The apartment is filled with memorabilia from the host's family. My wife and I found this charming, particularly since there were similarities with her large family! We would highly recomend it.
