Hello! I'm very excited to be on airbnb - I love New York City and look forward to sharing the experience of living here. A little bit about me: I was born in Russia, grew up in Brooklyn, NY and moved to Manhattan ten years ago - three of which have been spent on the Upper West side in the apartment featured here. I really love my neighborhood and wouldn't want to live anywhere else! The apartment is steps away from Central Park, next to three train lines (1, B, C) and has tons of restaurants, bars and convenience stores. But what I like best about it is that it actually FEELS like a neighborhood (unlike many other parts of Manhattan). I know all of my neighbors and the local deli owners.
