I'm Ronnie - I moved into my apt in Midtown East about a year ago and absolutely love it. I also work about 5 blocks away and love walking to work in the morning. As far as the apt goes, it's a very large studio with a large separate kitchen. I often host friends for drinks, dinner, or to watch movies, sporting events. etc.
As far as the neighborhood, there are lots of restaurants, bars, and lounges in the area and tons of activities to do such as walk to Central park, go to the movies, go shopping, etc. There are subways within a couple of blocks of my apt which can get you anywhere in the city.
I absolutely love my apartment and keep it spotless. I have a maid come once a week and am a very clean person in general. Hopefully you can keep my apt clean while I'm gone!
