Other Things to Note
My apt is quiet as it faces the back of the building
I take my shoes off when I enter the apartment so the neighbors downstairs are not disturbed. Also, I do not play loud music after 10:00 pm. NOTE: BE COURTEOUS ESPECIALLY AT NIGHT.
We stayed at Chris's place for 4 nights, the place was as shown and had everything you could ask for. It's only half a block from Central Park and very close to bars, restaurants and two subway lines. Chris was the perfect host, very easy to contact and providing loads of information and tips on how to get the best out of New York. Can't wait to return
Chris was a fantastic host! Before I even drove up to her building she texted me and told me there was parking space in front of her building and she was standing in it!! Awesome! She told us everything we needed to know about the area and even gave us a gift card for the fabulous Magnolia Bakery just a block away. Chris also gave us great tips for finding discounts on Broadway shows. The apartment was not huge but it was cozy and had everything we could need. It was raining while we were in town and Chris even had umbrellas for us to borrow. Even though we had bad weather (cold and rainy) we still had a great stay at Chris' place!
Chris was very responsive, supportive and positive in all her communication prior, during and after my stay.
The studio is accurately described, very clean and safe.
My flight home was cancelled last minute and I had nowhere to stay. Chris offered her studio to me on the spot. What a lifesaver! So generous and kind.
Chris communicated well before our arrival and made us feel welcome. The apartment was as described. It's on a residential street convenient to Central Park and Lincoln Center. We would stay there again.
