    Property description
    New York City
    Condo/Apartment – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    For the love of art, New York City, a sweet romance or the marathon or the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (you do have to walk across the park for this) , you will find the apartment charming and perfectly located.

    For Runners: 3 blocks from Road Runners Club, Central Park training routes (and the reservoir ), 2 blocks from the local Super Runners store. Convenient subways and buses to get to the Expo.

    For Everyone: The apartment is quiet and serene. Large kitchen. Great big tub for soaking weary limbs. Take in a museum (ten within 20 blocks) or just chill in this magnificent neighborhood.

    The Space

    The apartment is pure Manhattan, a study in black and white with pops of color. (Sorry, the pictures do not do justice. The decor has changed dramatically since the stripes. It is no...

3 of 5 stars Reviewed 31 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Great location! Close to Central Park, museums (Guggenheim, Met. Museum of Art), shopping and restaurants. All are within walking distance. Gina, the owner, is very welcoming and accommodating. Communication was timely from pre-rental until departure.

This is not a modern apartment (over 100 years old) but it’s spacious and has everything one needs during a stay in NYC. The bed could have been more comfortable (dips in the middle). But hey, we didn't come to NYC to sleep.

Management response:

Thanks so much for the review. Yes, the building is old - as in Olde New York. As for the bed, after these guests left, the cleaning woman discovered the frame had collapsed. I'm always available and if I had been alerted to the fact, would have corrected it immediately. It is now fully solid across the entire area. Overall,... more
