Description

We love families! Bring the kids, please. This is a big, bright, quiet, one bedroom apartment located in a 1920s era building on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The building is 20 stories tall, has 24 hour security, two elevators, and a basement laundry room. This 850 square foot apartment offers expansive views in two directions, including a view of The American Museum of Natural History. And best of all is the neighborhood which is full of shops, restaurants, bars, delis, and all the other services you would expect to find in any nice, residential neighborhood such as supermarkets, cleaners, playgrounds, etc. And two blocks away is Central Park. This really is the best neighborhood in NYC!

Location description from owner

The New York region

The Northeast of the United States was the birthplace of this nation, with the first European colonizations beginning in the early 17th century. Many of America's great cities are located in this region, including Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, and of course New York.

The first European to see New York harbor, and Manhattan, was the Italian Giovanni da Verrazano. Hired by those pesky French, Verrazano explored the area in 1524. But the French never exploited the discovery, and it wasn't until 1609 that another explorer, Henry Hudson, explored New York harbor and the river that now bears his name. It is ironic, and fitting, that Hudson's voyage was not sponsored by any government, but by the great "multinational" of it's day, the Dutch East India Company.

The first actual European settlement on Manhattan was a Dutch trading post called Nieuw Amsterdam, established in 1625. The settlement was taken over by the British and renamed New York in 1664, and New Yorkers have been speaking a language very much like English ever since.

New York City, like most destinations along the northeast coast of the United States, enjoys four wonderfully distinct seasons each year. Summer days can become quite hot and humid, and winters can include some cold, snowy spells, but the weather is generally fairly moderate due to the city's proximity to the Atlantic Ocean.

New York City

New York City needs little introduction to most people. It is most famous as the cultural and business capital of the United States, or some would say of the world. It's main attractions are its many museums, restaurants, stores, concert halls and theaters. Central Park, Times Square, the Empire State Building, Chinatown, Little Italy, Wall Street, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island draw visitors all year long.

The Upper West Side of Manhattan has its own share of attractions, all located within walking distance of this apartment. Such attractions include The American Museum of Natural History & Hayden Planetarium, The Children's Museum of Manhattan, The New York Historical Society Museum, The American Craft Museum, The Dakota Apartment Building and adjoining Strawberry Fields memorial to John Lennon, Lincoln Centre for the Performing Arts, and Carnegie Hall. The neighborhood is bounded by Central Park on one side, and the Hudson River with its newly designed, extensive biking path and park on the other.

The Upper West Side is also noted for its countless number of both elegant and more modest restaurants. Broadway, Amsterdam and Columbus Avenues are lined almost continuously with every imaginable type of restaurant, sidewalk cafe, bar, deli, newstand and shop. And while in the neighborhood, be sure to visit Zabar's famed deli and Fairway supermarket, both on Broadway, to see where "real" New Yorkers buy their groceries and gourmet kitchen supplies.

A short walk across Central Park, on the Upper East Side, one can visit the city's famous "museum mile" with such destinations as The Frick Museum, The Asia Society, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Neue Galerie, and The Guggenheim Museum.

“Fantastic New York accommodation in great location”

Reviewed 22 Jan 2013

The apartment was well fitted out, warm, and the beds were great. The owners are from New Your and left a mountain of sightseeing information and tips on good restaurants which saw us enjoy our week in New York (albeit a bit heavier when we left).

“Amazing Space, Amazing Place”

Reviewed 16 May 2012

Location, location, location. It's n American saying to evaluate real estate nd this apartment has the most perfect location in NY. It is close to everything-- nice, reasonably priced restaurants, museums, grocery stores if you want to save a little money,, and e subway stop. It is a fast and inexpensive subway ride to Times Square and to many other xciting areas of NY. It was onderful to hop the subway and get to a Broadway show or play or run to China town foramazing food and shopping. The apartment i terrific. It is quiet, with a nice viw. The kitchen has everything you'd need to cook if you want to save money-- especially nice for cooking breakfastfor folks while someone is showering and dressing. The living room is comfortable, and has fold don, futon bed for guests and their is additional extra sleeping . That is, of course, in addition to the bedroom with a queen size bed. I have 3 older teen/college age daughters and it was perfect for us. Apartment was very clean. The owners were great communicaors and left lots of printed infrmation on areaattractions, dining establishments, and transportation. Great value!!!!!!

“Perfect "explore NYC" spot”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2011

This spacious apartment is an ideal base for staying in the heart of the city while letting the visitor feel the character of the neighborhood. Public transportation could not be more convenient. The kitchen is well equipped and easy to work in. The rooms are spacious and the furniture comfortable. Restaurants and food stores are right around the corner. We have never felt unsafe walking in the neighborhood late at night. The owners provide detailed information about the apartment and the area. They have always been extremely helpful and can be easily reached. We have given up on hotels to stay here regularly.
