About this listing
My awesome modern corner penthouse apartment on the Upper West Side has sweeping views of the city and river in safe luxury doorman (24/7) building that's 10 mins from Central Park, Lincoln Center, the subway, taxis and more.
Beautiful corner penthouse w/ SW exposure overlooking the Hudson River in a terrific luxury doorman building on the Upper West Side.
I've lived here for 10+ years (which is like 632 in NYC years) and absolutely love this place.
This is a large (by NYC standards - 1000+ soft) 2-bedroom apartment with 2 separate, private bathrooms. The bedrooms & bathrooms are on opposite sides of the apartment, so there's plenty of privacy (no shared walls, etc.)
Each bedroom has its own bathroom, queen-sized bed with a VERY comfy mattress (I promise you'll fall in love), and you'll have use of the entire apartment.
I live here but travel quite a bit, so some dates I'll be at the apartment as well in my own bedroom - just check if you have any questions and I'll be happy to accommodate your preferences if you need privacy.
Some highlights of this apartment:
* Modern luxury doorman building
* 39th floor penthouse - spectacular, sprawling views of the city & Hudson River
* Balcony overlooking the river
* Great Upper West Side location - 5 minutes' walk from Lincoln Center, 5 minutes to Hudson River Park, 7 minutes from the subway, and 10 minutes to Central Park
* Full kitchen w/ gas stove, dishwasher, and fully plumbed Expobar espresso machine (if you're into that sort of thing ;)
* 50" Plasma HDTV
* Verizon FiOS cable & internet - the absolute best. 50 Mbit / sec internet w/ WiFi included.
* On-site parking garage available - attached directly to building (daily rates apply)
* Full gym w/ pool in lobby of building (privately owned/operated, so additional charges apply)
* Laundry room in lobby of building
* Supermarket & several small markets all within 2 blocks.
* Easy access to the subway (1 line @ Lincoln Center is about 7 minutes' walk) and there are always dozens of taxis zooming by on West End Ave. downstairs.
In other words, you'll love it here. My previous guests have been thrilled, and you will be too. Let me know if you have any questions!
* I'm pretty chill when it comes to rules. We can keep it simple: Leave the place as you found it and we'll be golden.
* Recycling required as per NYC laws - nothing serious, but just be sure to separate paper, metal, and regular trash into the three bins provided.
* Housekeeper is scheduled to come weekly if you'd like. A cleaning before and after your stay is include, but if you're staying for >7 days and would like the housekeeper to come, that's no problem - just let me know. There will be an additional $140/visit charge for this.
We stayed in Noah's apartment for 10 nights, visiting from Australia. From the moment we arrived we loved it! We were traveling with another couple and it was the perfect size for the 4 of us with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The bed was one of the most comfortable that I have ever slept in. The views of the Hudson River and downtown skyline were spectacular, especially at night time. Noah's apartment is in a great location- about a 10 minute walk to the subway at Lincoln Station and only a few extra minutes to Central Park. There are convenience stores very close by and plenty of restaurants in walking distance. The apartment was very quiet and we hardly heard any street noise. It is well equipped with high quality bed sheets and bath towels. I highly recommend Noah's apartment and would definitely stay there again if we are lucky enough to visit New York in the future.
This was our first AIRBNB rental and I was a bit apprehensive, Noah assured me everything would be fine and it was.
We have been coming to NYC, basically the same week, for the past 20+ years, for a trade show. We would take a two bedroom suite at a hotel that is undergoing restoration. We thought Noah's apt would be equally as comfortable - no way, the apt was much better.
We arrived earlier than check in time and was met by Rosa (she gets the apt ready for the next guest). Rosa helped us get our luggage placed so it was out of her way, gave us the keys and off we went to enjoy the afternoon.
The building staff are very helpful and the apt and building are very clean and quiet. Within two blocks there are two markets and a liquor store. Public transportation is literally 1/2 block away.
If it is available we will be back next year.
Perfect apartment in a perfect location! Noah was a fantastic host from the moment of booking to the moment of checking out. He always replied quickly to any queries and thought of everything in the information provided beforehand. Location of the apartment is perfect, the Lincoln Centre is just around the corner and Central Park is only a short walk away. The subway is just a couple of blocks away to connect to any part of the City you want to reach! The views are amazing and the comfortable air conditioned apartment was an absolute haven to come back to after a long day of walking - especially in the 90 degree humid heat we had! I would not hesitate to recommend Noah's apartment to anyone who wanted to visit New York, there was absolutely nothing that we were left wanting as Noah had thought of everything! The super fast Wifi also meant that as Business Owners we could check in and deal with any Company issues quickly and easily without having to worry.
Noah and his support team, Rosa and Kimbre deserve an A+ for meeting our needs during our stay. They provided us with important "extras" to make our visit pleasurable. We enjoyed breakfast in the unit while looking at the spectacular views. The location is ideal to see the sites in New York. We mostly used the bus rather than the subway to the theater district or major museums on the East Side. The M57 bus is on West End near the park. The bus drivers and other locals were very friendly and helpful.
The unit was equipped with everything we needed for our stay: toilet paper, laundry soap, superb wi fi, etc.
> Noah was very responsive and easy to get hold of.
> Apartment has great view of the river and the city lights, as advertised.
> Apartment is close to Lincoln Center and subway stops that get you easily to other sites you are interested in.
> Plenty of linens (towels and bedding).
> There were no wine glasses, no placemats, chipped glassware and dishes.
> Several outlets, especially around dinner table, did not work.
> A cord ran from the bedroom to the living room by way of the entrance to the kitchen.
> Paint splattered on the kitchen floor and chipped formica on the counter give the apartment a uncared-for look.
> Owner's assistant showed up unannounced, even though owner had phone numbers and email addresses, to troubleshoot the espresso machine, which we had no interest in.
Neither Pro nor Con:
> This is a transitioning neighborhood.
> This is definitely a bachelor's apartment.
> Location was not quite as close to what we wanted to do, but that was our responsibility.
Staying at Noah's place was really like staying at a friend's place. We were welcomed by Rosa, who showed us around. The apartment was clean and everything was arranged to make us feel comfortable. If necessary we could always call on Noah. From all rooms we had a great view at Manhattan and the Hudson River. Because we were with four of us (my husband and I, my daughter and son in law) it was very handy to have two bedrooms and two bath rooms. In every way much better than a hotel. We liked to prepare our own breakfast and to exchange our experiences in NYC sitting in the drawing room during the evening. Our son in law could even use the bike that stood in the hallway. He loved it.
So really a place that I can recommend to everyone.
Although we did not manage to meet Noah in person he was the best host imaginable. We were a group of four and whenever we had a question concerning the flat before or during our stay Noah replied promptly and politely and managed to help us quickly with whatever concern. The flat was super clean, everything from free wifi to clean towels was provided, and there was virtually nothing that turned out to be different from the description we had read on airbnb. Special thanks go to charming Creuza who jumped in for Noah to give us the keys a short tour of the apartment. We would definitely come back and stay at Noah's wonderful place again!
