About this listing
Central Park is the heart of NYC and this apartment overlooks it! A safe neighborhood with tons of great restaurants and fantastic museums puts the best of the city at your fingertips. The apartment is classic, comfortable and fully equipped.
This beautiful studio on Central Park West provides a delightful and accessible oasis on the Upper West Side to explore magnificent Manhattan. Just steps from the subway and directly across from famous Central Park, the apartment is on the 6th floor of an elevator, pre-war building, with fresh flowers, on-site laundry and a doorman.
An antique chandelier graces the raised dinning nook, providing a wonderful place to sit and drink coffee over-looking the park. A full-sized, very comfortable "sleep-comfort" mattress (you can adjust the firmness) is fitted with 1,000-count sheets. The classic tiled bathroom has an extra-long tub and a strong shower. The petite kitchen has a natural cork floor and cherry counters plus all the necessary cooking utensils and an array of wine and champagne glasses and cocktail mixers.
High speed wi-fi, cable and a blue ray player (as well as a flat screen TV) are included. There is a comfy couch that pulls out into a full-sized bed too. There are laundry machines on the bottom floor of the building and a woman's bike available with the rental.
Within just a few blocks you'll find a Wholefoods and plenty of shopping not to mention lots of delicious restaurants offering everything from Indian to Mexican to French cuisine. The building is located in a very safe neighborhood that zings with the city's special energy but not the extra noise. Some favorite neighborhood spots: Smoke, a jazz super club; Cafe Soilel, an organic breakfast spot; Life in Motion yoga studio, and a really cool speakeasy called Orange 67. Walk directly across the park to explore the endless gems of the Met Museum or romp around the Guggenheim or the Natural History Museum just down Central Park.
New York is one of the world's great cities and this classic home is an elegant and comfortable base from which to enjoy its riches...
Card-operated washers and dryers on the ground floor of the building; woman's bike, mail box.
Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as required and desired...
The Upper West Side is a haven in NYC--larger sidewalks, great restaurants and a bit quieter but close to all the museums....
Couldn't be more convenient--the C/B line is literally on the corner! Bike paths galore in the park. Lots of cabs too...
No smoking. No big parties. Condo laws must be abided (recycling, quiet hours, etc. you'll get the full download on a PDF).
This is a warm condo environment with friendly neighbors and a lovely feel for the building as a whole-- and I am very careful about the folks I let stay here. Please treat my home as your own and we will both be very happy!
About the Host, Jules
I am a creative professional living in NYC for nearly 20 years. As much as I enjoy the city, I also want to see the world! When I'm home, I love to watch the leaves in Central Park budding bright green in Spring then orange and gold in Autumn. The sunrise and moonrise can be seen shimmering on the pond in the winter... I'll fill you in on all the cool bars and restaurants in the hood and I promise-- you'll love it here.
