About this listing
Sunny 1 bedroom 2 min walk from Central Park. 19th century brownstone typical of NYC. Quiet street. Large living room, high ceiling, bow-window, brick wall. One flight of stairs up. Very clean. Close to several subways, shops, restaurants. I love it!
The living-room (exposed South) is very large and nicely furnished (big sofa, large table with chairs), with apparent brick wall and decorative chimney. The mezzanine in the living-room accommodates a real double bed (about 4 feet high: please note that you cannot fully stand).
The bedroom has a comfortable double bed with a new mattress.
The kitchen contains a dishwasher, a fridge, an oven, a microwave oven, a coffee machine, a nespresso machine, a blender, a toaster, a kettle, and everything you need to cook a nice dinner, all fairly new.
The bathroom has a bath/shower.
Everything is very clean and well maintained.
We do have high-speed internet.
everything except for a few closet spaces and the second mezzanine in the bedroom since it is used as storage (the one with the double bed is above the living-room)
Interaction with guests
Whereas the appartement is on a quiet street, this is nevertheless a very lively neighborhood: lots of shops and restaurants literally round the corner; theaters on Broadway; fabulous National history museum, Metropolitan opera and NYC Ballet at a walkable distance. Central park is 2 minutes-walk away, the Hudson river and its nice park at less than 10 minutes away, with great views on New Jersey.
Very good supermarkets very close (Fairway on 75th and Trader Joes on 71st and Broadway).
Line 1,2,3 are at 7 minutes walk (lines 2 and 3 run express, and take you to Times Square in 3 minutes).
Line B,C is 5 minutes-walk (takes you downtown too, direct to Chelsea and the High Line)
Other things to note
Laundry across the street.
No loud music after 10pm please.
Strictly non smoking apartment
Hi! I'm a transplant to New York City from Paris and I've lived here for 2 and a half years, working to promote French fiction and non fiction in the US. I love traveling around the country, whether staying near New York or going far afield (a recent great trip was to Santa Fe and the small towns nearby). I like spending time relaxing in my cosy and sunny apartment and also going for a birdwatching walk in the nearby Central Park. My partner and I often have guests from Europe staying with us, and we enjoy it very much. No life motto yet, but I'm working on it.
