About This Listing
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).
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.
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 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.
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!
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.
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!

Please be aware that this building is a 4th floor walk up. If you were to need any assistance with your luggage just let me know I'll be glad to help.
The apartment is in a pre-war (old early 1900's) building. It has some quirks, but the apartment itself is newly renovated.
I will do whatever I can to accommodate any reasonable guest requests.
Any questions - please feel free to ask!
The guest bedroom.... a plush full size mattress on a captains bed (with empty drawers), a wall unit to hang clothes, chair and small desk. I'll provide sheets, towels, duvet and comforter. Bathroom entrance is to left of the window.
This was our first airbnb experience, and we will definitely do it again. The loft was clean and attractive, the bed was comfortable, and the location was perfect for walking to the Metropolitan Museum, great restaurants, Central Park, and the subway. We weren't expecting to have a private bathroom, so it was a pleasant surprise. Patrick was pleasant and helpful, giving us directions and suggestions to make getting around town easier. Though he lives and works in the apartment, we only saw him once. From his profile we knew that he was very accomplished, and would have loved a little more interaction, but with only 2 days in New York we were up and out early, and stayed out late. If we travel to New York again, we would be happy to stay there again.
Patrick was great and his place is in a great location - easy access to subway, the beautiful Central Park just over the road was such a bonus ! We loved it !
Patrick took time to show us around and talk to us about any questions we had. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about NYC. The space was clean and comfortable with groceries very near by. The location was perfect. We loved walking through Central Park and being so close to the subway. We also appreciated the nice write up of information and recommendations Patrick gave us. We would definitely stay again!
Patrick was a great host, he was there to welcome us and help with our bags, and gave us some tips for getting around the city. We didnt see much of him but we were welcome to come and go from the apartment as we pleased. The room was a perfect size for the two of us, and the bathroom was well appointed. The location is great, literally a few steps away from central park, and very handy for catching the subway or getting a cab. Overall we were really happy with our stay.
Honestly, we only need a place to sleep at night, so this was perfect for us. It was a great value and met our needs. The room was cozy, we felt very welcome, and were able to come and go as we pleased. We only saw Patrick the first day. After that we left early and came in late. The only suggestion I have for anyone coming to explore NYC is to make sure you realize that 100th Street is quite far from Times Square. We did a lot of walking an finally resorted to using the subway, but some of the stations were under construction so even that did not save us much time or money. We ended up having to take a cab quite often. All in all, for two women exploring NYC and tagging along on our children's school trip, it was a perfect place to stay that saved us a ton of money!! We felt safe and really enjoyed walking through Central Park!
Patrick is a very nice person, and his apartment is very lovely.
Didn't get a chance to say goodbye with him, but definitely will live in his apartment if I go to visit NY again.
