Would you like to live like most New Yorkers wish they could ? What would it be like if you could wake up in the morning enjoy making your favorite brew in the remodeled kitchen, and then take in into your own private garden and bask in the early morning sun? Wouldn't that be rare in center city so close to The Empire State Building. Are you traveling with friends and family? You have a choice of sleeping and pricing options. You can choose 1 bedroom or 3. Five guests can share the large 1-bedroom apartment with a separate Kitchen & Dining Room & a full glamorous marble and glass bathroom, offering you a cost effective vacation. Add on the 2-room plus 1/2 bathroom suite if you are a large group or would like more privacy.Your private walled garden is perfect for relaxing w...Would you like to live like most New Yorkers wish they could ?

Add on the 2-room plus 1/2 bathroom suite if you are a large group or would like more privacy.Your private walled garden is perfect for relaxing with a glass of wine or cup of coffee while the squirrels scamper & the birds sing in the mature trees....Not very many people can enjoy this option in the center of Manhattan. Put your feet up and wind down.Enjoy the cozy charm of exposed brick walls, wide plank floors, a fireplace & original oil paintings. The Living Room has a queen sized sofa in classic muted colors and 2 chairs fold open into single beds as well as a black leather arm chair with a fold out ottoman. . A cushioned single Bahama bed is convenient for another guest. if you prefer, we can add a high quality queen size air bed on legs for you although this takes up a lot of room if you leave it open during the day time. A quaint 150 year old opaque glass wall separates the living room & bedroom. Pamper yourself with an excellent night's sleep and wake up refreshed in the queen size bed with quality linens,a fluffy feather duvet & lots of extra pillows. There's plenty of room for all of your clothes and shopping sprees in a wall of custom fitted closets. The en suite marble bathroom has a small tub with shower and a glamorous glass vanity.Have a bite to eat when ever you feel like it in your separate & full eat-in kitchen with extra large double door refrigerator/freezer with automatic ice maker, full stove with oven & full size dishwasher. The kitchen is nicely equipped with microwave, coffee pot, pots & pans, dishes, glassware and flatware. T he dining area with cushioned window seat overlooks the peaceful garden. If you don't feel like cooking, just order in from the many nearby restaurants or have the grocery stores deliver.An adjacent 2-room 1/2 bath duplex suite has a library/bedroom with an over sized double sofa bed. Private interior stairs lead to a large upstairs bedroom with 2 twin size beds that can be made up into a king size bed & a single ottoman bed. A marble 1/2 bath is off of this room. This is a no smoking apartment for your comfort. Smoking in the garden is always okay.The apartment is one of 3 units in a private townhouse. It is on the garden floor in the back & is exceptionally quiet, clean, safe and secure. The owners live in the apartment upstairs. The rental rates are for 2 guests in the apartment. Add the suite for $1095 a week or $225 a day. Additional guests up to 10 total are $45 a day. More
