We are always available, but only see the guests when they knock on our door. So far we have had one wedding and a few walking tours with the friendliest guests.
Many people ask if this is a safe neighborhood. The answer is yes. It used to be tough, but these days residents are able to walk around here without worries.
The population is a mix of Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, African American and all other different cultures that make New York a great city. A few blocks down is the Upper East Side, a more affluent neighborhood within walking distance. A couple of blocks to the west is the Museum Mile and Central Park.

It was a great experience staying. Tanya and Juan are very nice and friendly. The place is clean, beautiful, and quiet. Probably because I was by myself, it was actually larger than I expected. It is close to subway and supermarket. I felt safe walking around. Highly recommended!
I took my boyfriend for his birthday weekend. It was the first time that we used airbnb and we will definitely be using it again. The apartment is a gem! Not only does it have a kitchen and a bathroom but it is very clean. The porch is awesome. One of our friend's lives in New York City and she was jealous. She said it was extremely nice for NYC. I have to agree. We were very pleasantly surprised. We were able to walk to the subway every day. One day we walked over to Central Park and it was less then 10 minutes away. The apartment is quiet and cozy. Close by is a small grocery shop where you can get the essentials and down a few blocks is a larger store if you want to go full out grocery shopping. My boyfriend's words about the place, "It was awesome, a great find!" When we go back, we hope to stay at Tanya's again. Terrace on Lex Near Central Park helped make my boyfriend's birthday great.
It was an amazing apartment with a good location, close to metro and shops, are also close by central park. Tanay and Juan were friendly. Everything was perfect.I recommend to visit this apartment
twice was superb to stay here ))
Excelente estancia, súper recomendable!!!
Excelente lugar! Estuvimos muy cómodos durante dos semanas en el departamento. Es exactamente como aparece publicado, incluso más grande de lo que parece en las fotos - además tiene televisión con direcTV, cosa que creo que no se llega a ver en las fotos. Los anfitriones Tanya y Juan fueron siempre muy atentos y se preocuparon de que estuviéramos cómodos. Incluso pudimos enviar un paquete desde (website hidden) antes de viajar y nos lo guardaron sin problema. El departamento está a tres cuadras cortas del subterráneo, con lo cual se hace muy fácil llegar a cualquier lado en Manhattan (en menos de media hora se llega a midtown). También se puede ir caminando hasta a parte norte del Central Park. Tiene cerca un supermercado y algunos lugares para comprar comida hecha que están abiertos hasta tarde. La zona parece segura, y no tuvimos ningún problema de este tipo. Volveríamos a este lugar sin dudarlo, muy recomendable!
Tanya and Juan are so sympathic! It was very good! Thanks for all, hope c u my friends
Tremendo estadía, apartamento limpio y cómodo.Cerca del subway station muy eficiente para viajar. Encantado con el trato de Tanya y su disponibilidad!! Muy complacido.
Me encantó el departamento. El sector es tranquilo, seguro. A pocas cuadras del metro. Es pequeñito, pero para 1 o 2 personas es ideal, tiene de todo.
Juan y Tanya son excelentes anfitriones. de todas maneras recomiendo el departamento.
Thank you Tanya and Juan for everything!
It was my first time experience with AirBnB. The place was exactly as described, and close to sub. Hosts were very friendly and nice! They made our NY trip unforgettable! Will returne to Terrace on Lex for sur on my next NY trip!
