About this listing
Private room in a high rise apartment in one of the best areas of NYC. The apartment building has a doorman, ATM, gym/sauna, laundry facilities, dry cleaning, wireless. The bathroom, living and kitchen are shared area. Private room is next to the balcony facing the new towers at Ground Zero (World Trade Center).
My balcony serves as the "private beach in the sky" since it gets a lot of sun in the summer. There are chairs and table for dining.
I am very clean, organized and neat so you will not have to worry about hygiene. I am a quiet person living in a very exciting city. I can give you advise on what to do, where to go, etc. I like to read, walk around the city and scavenge for bargains.
Apartment is centrally located and close to everything NYC has to offer. The apartment building is adjacent to one of NYC's most iconic buildings called "FLATIRON BUILDING" - a well photographed and filmed building. Madison Square Park is a beautiful park where you can get NYC's best hamburger from restaurateur Danny Meyer's Shake Shack - the line can be a mile long but it is worth the wait. In the summertime, there is an art installation in the park and there is free music entertainment at night, plus a big screen projects the US Open Championship, during the day. If you want a fancy meal, one of the world's best restaurants Danny Meyer's Eleven Madison is a stone throw away. If you want a good cup of joe, Stumptown Coffee (voted as one of NYC's best coffee places with the best looking baristas) at the Ace Hotel is around the corner.
You can walk to all and most tourist spots: the best fashion shops and restaurants, Broadway shows, clubs, art galleries, furniture and design stores, etc. I am a 10 block walk to Empire State Building, 20 blocks to Grand Central Station and Chrysler Bldg, Time Square, etc. You can easily walk to the west river (Hudson) and to the east river (FDR) should you want a day in the sun close to the water.
For entertainment, bars and clubs (gay and straight) are close and within a short walking distance. You can get drunk and not have to worry about a cab ride or waiting for the train ride back home. Should you need to get the subway, all the subway lines are within a block of each other going west, east, uptown, downtown.
From Grand Central Station where the JFK/LGA Airport buses drop you off, you can walk to my neighborhood provided that you are not carrying too much.
EASY - Open and close door GENTLY at all times.
