Description

The Space

I haven't listed since 2012 and listed for a very limited duration then. So I have only 7 reviews.
The apartment is usually available only Mon thru Thurs.
However, I may be traveling on business and it could be available some weekends.
Please contact me and check availability before you book.
It's a 1 br on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. A short walk from Central Park and Museum Mile. Many restaurants in the area. Close to the subway. A short subway ride from Times Square. I usually walk to the theatre district (Times Square). It's a little over 2 miles. But most of that is through Central Park.
Book the whole apartment for $130/night.
Book the larger room with futon (sleeps 2) for $90/night.
Book the small room with cot and bunk bed for $80/night.
If you book just a room, then I'd also stay in the apartment with you.
It's on the 1st floor. There's a garden, grill, picnic table, chairs. I'd provide charcoal.
A small, fully equipped kitchen.
WiFi
Cable TV
36" flat screen TV
DVD
AC
Queen futon
Cot
Bunk bed (why it's sleeps 4 - just have to be careful of the ceiling)
Phone available for local calls.
Laundry facility in basement.
Free street parking (but have to watch those street cleaning hours)
Linens, towels, soap, shampoo provided.
It's great for kids. My 11 year old son stays here with me on weekends. So all his toys and games are available. There's a small basketball and hockey set in the back yard. Let me know if you're coming with kids and I could possibly even make his Wii and Nintendo Game Cube available.
I have home delivery of the New York Times. So you'd even get the paper in the morning.
Smoking OK
Flexible cancellation.
I'm a member of the Museum of Natural History and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Might be able to let you use my membership card. Have to check that.
Now to Broadway. I've done 8 Broadway shows. Won 2 awards for my work on Broadway. Many Broadway connections. It's possible that I could arrange house seats for nearly any Broadway show. House seats are the seats reserved for those connected with the show. They're usually available til around 48 hours before a performance. Usually within the first 8 rows of the orchestra. They're expensive. At least $160-$200/tkt. And I might have to charge a service charge depending on how difficult it would be to arrange them. As stated above, I offered the apartment for a very limited duration in 2012. Hard to tell how many guests would want me to try to arrange house seats. I wouldn't want to overwhelm my Broadway friends with house seat requests. But I arrange house seats for friends and relatives regularly. So I could possibly arrange them for my guests.
If you book the whole apartment, you'd live with my tortoise and fish for the nights you were here. But they'd be no bother to you. I'd make sure I fed them before giving you the keys.
Occasionally, you can hear the people walking in the apartment overhead. But it's not bad. i'm used to it.
So there you have it. If you have any questions, please contact me.
Only rule is that you can't be too loud in the garden, apartment, or building.

I've been a professional actor all my life. Done 8 Broadway shows. Won 2 awards for my work on Broadway. Done TV, film. Played in regional theaters all over the US. Haven't been leading an itinerant life because of my 11 year old boy. But I might be returning to the life of an actor now. Which means the apartment would be available when I'm on the road. Please check with me about availability before you book. I'm very familiar with NY. Lived in NY or the NY area all my life. I could help you and guide you when you come to NY.
