About this listing
Minutes from New York City...
This 2 bedroom apartment located directly off of the prestigious Blvd East* is only minutes to Manhattan and is perfect for a family or a small group of friends. The bright and spacious pre-war apt sleeps 5-7 (Queen size bed, twin bed, couch and futon. AeroBed and "Pack & Play" crib available upon request).
It features original hardwood floors, crown molding, Air conditioning, surround sound, wifi, flat screen TV with cable, track lighting with dimmers, stainless steel appliances, microwave, dishwasher, bathtub/shower, coin laundry on main floor ($1.75 per load) and soundproof, Eco friendly windows.
The apt is on the 3rd floor (3 quick flights up - no elevator/lift) and has lots of natural light and beautiful views of the sunset towards the west. The bus stop and breathtaking views of the NYC skyline are both right outside the door and buses will bring you to the center of Times Square 42nd St in 15-20 min. A beautiful alternative to the bus is the ferry which takes 8 min across the Hudson River and is a must at least once during your stay.
The apartment is currently unoccupied so all the drawer and closet space is yours to unpack in. It's beautifully and stylishly decorated with all the comforts and amenities of a hotel but without the clutter of someone else's belongings. You're free to make yourself at home and to respectfully make the place feel like your own.
We're happy to offer suggestions during your stay and are easily reached if you have any questions or encounter any issues. If you love good food, wine or desserts let us recommend the places locals love. We know that travel can sometimes be stressful and we want to make your vacation as comfortable and worry-free as possible while helping you experience the special parts of New York that tourists generally miss.

NYC is only a quick ride away from this gorgeous apt and you can enjoy breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline from Blvd East that make New Yorkers jealous.
* - Blvd East runs along the crest of the Hudson Palisades, affording it stunning views of the Hudson River and the New York City skyline that are recognized around the world. Much of Boulevard East runs parallel to the edge of a sheer escarpment and offers expansive views of the iconographic Manhattan skyline. Dotted with parks, green space and scenic lookouts, Blvd East is a popular stop for tour buses allowing tourists to capture photos of the best and most famous view of NYC. Since 2009, when Macy's began to launch its annual Fourth of July fireworks from the Hudson River, portions of The Boulevard are closed to allow spectators to view the display.
Please treat the apartment as it's your own.
No loud parties or noise after 10pm (strictly enforced)

About the Host, Ryan
Hey! My name is Ryan and I am a dad, a traveler, an entrepreneur and a performer (a long time ago). I performed onboard Royal Caribbean Cruiselines as a singer and dancer in the revue shows. I was fortunate enough to travel LITERALLY around the world over my 3 years on ships and had amazing experiences that I couldn't have packed into a lifetime of traveling had I not been "working" at the same time.
Needless to say, traveling became a bit of an obsession and since leaving cruiseships 10 years ago, I've continued to travel to new places as well as revisiting some favorites from the cruising days.
Originally I'm from LA but have lived in NY for 10 years now trading one show biz city for another. I have stopped performing but have remained on the business side of show business as a producer and founder of 2 companies tailored to performers in the Entertainment industry.
I love to look for interesting places to stay during my travels and much prefer the comfort, space, uniqueness and warmth of someone's home to an impersonal and more expensive hotel. It feels like I'm experiencing the place I visit the way the locals do.
I became a dad to an amazing baby boy in Jan, 2012 so trips to places like Australia, Africa, Europe and Hawaii are gonna be on the back burner for a while but I LOVE living in New York City and hope to help make other people's vacations to this amazing place as special as the one's I've experienced in the past.
Hope I can help make your vacation memorable!
