Kathleen was the greatest host and promptly replied to all my e-mails prior to and during our stay. Her apartment is lovely, clean and is well equipped with anything you could possibly need. Much cheaper & more convenient than a hotel, I would not consider staying in expensive NYC any other way and would happily stay in Kathleen's apartment again when we come back to this wonderful city some day! The subway station we used - 66 St & Lincoln Centre - is only a 5-10 minute walk and also located on these few blocks are many restaurants, shops, cafes & of course the Lincoln Centre. The subway ride into Times Square is 3 stops & under 5 minutes away. There is a large grocery store directly opposite the apartment and a few restaurants on the same block. The location of this apartment could not be more perfect - so convenient! Thank you so much to Kathleen for allowing us to experience NYC from her beautiful apartment & on such short notice and for more than half what we would have paid at a hotel! We would definatley stay here again when we come back to NYC one day hopefully soon.
Kathleen´s apartment was a great place to stay and she is ideal to deal with. All our requests, though few, were promptly and efficiently dealt with.
One thing Kathleen does not mention about her place is the convenience of public transportation. Although the subway is six blocks away, Bus M57 runs right in front of her place. Taking the bus towards uptown will drop you off at Broadway and 72nd, right at the subway stop while taking it towards downtown will take you to the East side along 57th street.
Overall, we had a great time, in spite of my medical condition which Columbia Presbyterian treated admirably.
I highly recommend staying at Kathleen´s place to anyone who enjoys NY and specially the great food of the UWS.
It was a great stay at Kathleen's. The studio was spacious and comfortable. The only thing that bothered us was that the nearest subway station was three blocks away, other than that it was perfect.
Staying at Kathleen's was great. We already knew the area so we felt immediately at home. It is near Columbus Circle and Lincoln Center, easily reachable by bus and subway. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. I would certainly recommend staying at Kathleen's!
The pictures do not do Kathleen's apartment justice! Her studio is very comfortable and spacious--very comfy bed, great big windows (for both a view and fresh air), excellent water pressure, fully functional kitchen, clean, quiet and safe. Kathleen was easy to work with and even provided a few single-fare metro passes. Close to Columbus Circle, a crosstown bus, etc. Kathleen's place was an excellent place to call "home" while staying in NYC. What an ideal NY apt. would be for a couple--we would stay there again in a NY minute!
