I have a warm, clean, happy apartment on the Upper West Side full of our funky decorations, trinkets from world travels + fully stocked with everything you could need to have an awesome trip. :) Close to subways, stores + restaurants. An urban oasis!

The Space

This is a clean, comfortable, cozy single bedroom in a three-bedroom place with a queen-sized bed just off Broadway near the 1 train or two blocks from the B + C trains. We have an elevator!! An anomaly in NYC!

Central Park is three blocks away, and Riverside Park is two blocks. Plenty of amazing restaurants, bars, shops and grocery stores. A lot of Columbia students live in the area, as well as estrablished families and young professionals. We have a huge kitchen + living room, great common space-- and with my sister roommate, we are happy to give suggestions for Big Apple merriment and general directions/travel tips.

We provide linens, towels, pillows + anything else you would probably need:

Hair straightener
Curling irons
Breakfast foods
Cold beer
A knock-knock joke that probably won't be funny : )

Any and all questions, feel free to ask- I'm happy to help!

Guest Access

The entire apartment.

Interaction with Guests

If you want input + friendship, I'm game! If you want to do your own thing, coming + going as you please, feel free. You'll have your own set of keys.

The Neighborhood

It's calm, quiet + safe yet still has a lot of flair + fun. There's a lot of families + Columbia college students, making for a nice balance of exuberance, safety + a happy neighborhood feel.

Getting around

Super close to three subway lines that will take you anywhere you need to go!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

  • The location was great! It was very convenient to the subway and busses. KT and Kristy were also very friendly and willing to help but could improve communications prior to guests' arrival. Sometimes it was a bit difficult getting in contact with them. We really appreciated their recommendations and felt comfortable in their apartment. You could tell that they genuinely wanted us to feel "at home" by allowing us to come and go as we please with our own set of spare keys.

  • I had a wonderful time staying with Kristy and Katie. Their place was very large and clean and ideally located. They were the perfect hostesses and I would highly recommend staying with them. And I would stay with them again in a heartbeat in my next trip to NYC. Thank you both again so much!!! Five Stars

  • Fabuleuse semaine à NY, dans un quartier super, un appartement très sympa, et des filles surtout géniales ! Métro au coin de la rue, restos, magasins ouverts 24/24h, ça fait bizarre de retourner en France et de voir les commerces fermés passée une certaine heure ! Je recommande vivement, et retournerais chez Katie & Kristy si je devais revenir dans la Grosse Pomme, sans la moindre hésitation !

    Wonderful week in NY, great neighborhood, really nice apartment, and most of all, amazing girls ! Subway at the corner, restaurants, shops opened 24/7, so weird to be back in France and see "closed" at night ! I strongly recommend, and I'll go there again without a doubt if I had the chance to !

  • KT的姐姐迎接的我们,她是个非常好的人。帮我拉了行李,还给我们列出附近的超市和饭店。房间有点小,但是有个很舒服的大床。对于旅行中的人来讲足够了。位置也不错,离地铁1号线就二分钟路程 。可以走到中央公园。

  • I stayed with KT at her lovely apartment and had a great time. The place was clean , very cozy with such a comfortable bed. KT was really friendly and awesome, a real good person and will definitively go back...she made everything so easy for me and helped me in all she could. I had a problem with the payment and she helped me really incredibly...She will be always my friend!!!!
    I totally recommend her place.. besides, it has a subway just on the same street and many places nearby to do laundry, to eat (McDonalds, KFC, Dunkin Donuts..etc) Thanks you for everything KT!!!You are the best!!!!!

  • Kt & Kristy Bar's warm, welcoming and cozy apartment full of character is 2 min. to the subway and 10 min to downtown. It was my best visit to NY, during a cold winter too. Not my favorite time to travel but it turned out to be the best time! They were gracious and helpful hostesses, making sure I knew my directions ( which really matters a lot in such a big city) and they went out of their way to make me feel at home which I really appreciated. I look forward to future visits and highly recommend their accommodation.

  • I stayed with Katie and her sister for a bit over a month and had an absolute blast!! They are both so welcoming, friendly, and made me feel right at home and like family in their apartment. They invited me to hang out with their friends, and I had a lot of fun. I could not have imagined a better stay!

    The apartment is great, it's fun and spacious. The location is amazing. It's super close to the subway, the supermarket, and heaps of bars and restaurants - everything I could ever need during a very cold New York winter!

    I definitely recommend staying with Katie and her sister at their apartment - it's the best way to experience New York City. I will definitely stay there again. It was the best decision of my trip to New York, and I'm sure it will be for everyone else too! Thanks again!!

  • Amazing! What a wonderful time we had! Katie, Kristy and Mike were so nice...we highly recommend this place. Their directions from LaGuardia to the apartment were great. The price (for NYC) was very good; especially during the holidays. The bed was crazy comfortable! The apartment is right next to the subway and just up the road a bit from the M60 bus. They were helpful, informative & always available - very warm and welcoming. Their hospitality made our trip.

    Anyone going to NYC for the first time THIS is the place to stay.

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Katie and Kristy. They are very warm, friendly, energetic, helpful and trusting hosts. They made us feel part of their circle of friends and part of their everyday life which enhanced our experience of New York (which is one of the great benefits of an Airbnb adventure).

    The accommodation and facilities were more than adequate. The best location of our visit to the US for access to the subway being only a 1 minute walk from the front door of the building.

    Highly recommended.

  • My friend and I stayed with katie and kristy for almost a week, and thanks to them our vacation went from great to amazing! They welcomed us with open arms and helped us with everything we needed help with. Clean room and great location near the subway. When i go back to NY I will absolutely stay with Kt and Kristy again! /your "swedish sisters";)
