The Space

Hello! I have a dedicated, beautiful guest bedroom with a private black marble bathroom in my renovated three bedroom apartment in Manhattan on the Upper West Side. This classic New York building is turn-of-the century (pre-war), on the corner of Central Park West and 100th street... across the street is Central Park!

The apartment is conveniently located near subway and buses... within walking distance to over a dozen museums, and you can get almost anywhere in Manhattan within 20-40 minutes, door-to door!

* Just to clarify, since the question comes up a lot, I am only renting this bedroom, not the entire apartment. If you need another room, or this one is booked, I occasionally rent out my bedroom if I'm traveling (check out my other listing).

THE ROOM:
This beautiful room is a dedicated guest bedroom, and is fully furnished with a private black marble full-bathroom (only you will use this bathroom!). There is beautiful brick wall, dark hardwood floors, and a wall-unit that lets you hang clothes, with drawers and shelves so you can fully unpack - you don't have to live out of a suitcase. There is a plush pillow-top Kings Down full-size mattress on a captains bed with 2 drawers that is available to put more of your things in. There is also a small wooden desk and chair. This is an interior bedroom within the apartment, and the windows face a light well (not Central Park). There is high-speed Wi-Fi throughout apartment, including this bedroom, and you are free to use it.

I will supply sheets and towels. The room will comfortably fit a couple. The bed has a cozy down comforter, and pillows. You are welcome to hang out in the large and comfortable living room during your stay. Guests are welcome to use the kitchen as much (or little) as you want. There is a shelf in the refrigerator for your food, as well as space in the cabinets to put groceries. I keep basics groceries in stock for when guests check-in such as milk, juice, tea, coffee, snacks, etc.

If you have a lot of luggage, you can always store them in the living room, under the piano.

THE APARTMENT
This is a large, furnished, 3 bedroom apartment with 2 marble bathrooms & kitchen (approx 1200 sq ft). It is a beautifully renovated pre-war building, and we are on the 4th floor (walk-up). There is wi-fi in the apartment. I have a great long term roommate (one) in the 2nd bedroom, who is mostly out during the daytime. I have the third bedroom.

Most guests say this apartment looks like the quintessential New York City apartment, being right on Central Park with the brick walls in every room, fire escape, grand piano, and dark wood floors.

Since I am a composer and music producer the apartment is filled with musical things... photos and posters from my shows, musical instruments, and my studio setup. I also have a 6ft baby-grand Baldwin piano which guests can play during the day, when myself and my roommate are out of the apartment. I've had many wonderful musical guests stay, ranging from students auditioning at music conservatory to musicians performing at Carnegie Hall!

THE NEIGHBORHOOD
The neighborhood is residential area that is quiet and safe! The Police and Fire station is 2 blocks away. We are also within 2 blocks from a lot of stores including Whole Foods, several pharmacies, banks, a bakery, and dry cleaner. 3 blocks away on Broadway are tons of restaurants, and many deliver.

THE LOCATION
We are located right on Central Park West on the Upper West Side of Manhattan - a very residential area. You can get almost anywhere in Manhattan within 20-40 minutes. Within walking distance of the apartment are more then a dozen museums including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim, Natural History Museum, Hayden Planetarium, Neue Gallery, Jewish Museum, and many more. Also within walking distance is the famous "Tom's Diner"used in Seinfeld!

TRANSPORTATION
The 96th street B and C subway is a 2 minute walk from the building. Within 20 minutes (by subway) you can be in Times Square and the theater district for Broadway Shows. Within 20 to 40 min you can be almost anywhere in Manhattan! You can walk thru the park in about 15 or 20 minutes to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim, or the Natural History Museum. From any of the main airports it will take about 1.5hrs to Newark or JFK by public transportation and 45-60 min by taxi. To Laguardia about 60 min by public transportation and 25-30 min by taxi.

MISC
If you are new to NYC, I am more then happy to help explain how to get places, recommendations, and answer any questions - I grew up in NYC!

  • Spent a fabulous week in NYC. We stayed in Patrick's apartment in a bedroom with our own en suite bathroom. Patrick was a charming host, gave us friendly advice when asked and made us feel welcome at all times. We were able to make breakfast each day in a well equipped kitchen and on 2 nights we ate dinner in bought from the Wholefoods Market 2 blocks away. Apartment is in an ideal location opposite Central Park to walk and jog daily as well as within a 5 minute walk to the subway. Was nice to come back to the apartment in a quiet area after a long day in the noisy bustle of the city. Highly recommend the location and apartment for those who want a holiday in New York.

  • Patrick's appartement is in a very nice location and a great place if you want to explore nyc. The Appartement itself is also a cool place, but because it's a little older not very well soundproofed. That isnt a problem if you bring oropax though. Patrick was friendly and helpful. We had a good time here

  • We enjoyed staying in this nice, clean and quite apartement. The beautiful old building is located close to Central Park and the subway station with shops and starbucks or birch for a coffee not far away. We find everything in the room that we need, including free wi-fi. We had a pleasent stay while we explored New York and we recommend this place to anyone who is visting New York. Thanks to Patrick.

  • A great location across from Central Park, just a block from 96th St subway. A small but charming apartment; the climb to the fourth storey is steep with luggage. The room is cosy and quiet and Patrick is a discreet and welcoming host. It was a pity that the building suffered a hot water outage during my stay but these things happen: the cold shower was exhilarating!

    Response from Patrick:

    As described in the listing, the apartment is a 4th floor walk up; I am happy to help carry luggage up or down! Yes, we did have a hot water issue for a few hours that day, but it was back a few hours later in the afternoon (after Paul checked out)... sometimes these old buildings have quirks!

  • We had a very pleasent stay at Patricks. He was very nice and we very much enjoyed being there. Clean place with fine space, and our own bathroom.
    The location was amazing near by central park almost in the back yard, and close to the subway.
    We will like to come back to NYC and Patrick.

  • Patrick's place is in a perfect location, overlooking the gorgeous Central Park, and Central Park West is such a beautiful street. Everything in New York is so easy to get to on the subway, and the Wholefoods five minutes away made me very happy :)
    The apartment is nice and warm, cosy and althogh has it's quirks (like most New York apartments do), it's such a fun place to stay in.
    Do your washing at the dry cleaners right next door, and go for coffee at Birch, just up the road on Columbus.
    It's a very quiet, peaceful place to stay. It made for a perfect little home while I explored and fell in love with New York.

  • We loved the location of Patrick's apartment. The bed was comfortable and the apartment was clean. Patrick was quick to answer our questions and concerns. I would definitely recommend this place to travelers who want a quiet place that is close to the subway and central park. It was nice having internet access, our own bathroom and the use of the kitchen.
