Upper West Side apartment description

I lived in this apt when I first bought the house. It has my own personal touch . I live in the same building on the top floor (is a townhouse), and take care of the whole house, with the help of my affectionate Hortensia to keeps this apt clean and in good shape.
DESCRIPTION OF THE APT.
Full-service kitchen with microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and dishwasher. Full Bath + 1/2 bath. Sunken Art Deco living room with parquet floors and high ceilings. View and use of a private garden patio, a large Cable TV, and WiFi Internet.

Tasteful Italian-style living. Close to subways and buses, one block from Central Park, and 3 blocks from Riverside Park. On the Gold Coast of the Upper West Side. Very conveniently located near a supermarket and several gourmet stores, plenty of very good restaurants, and lots of shopping.

Nearby: Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Columbia University, Museum of Natural History. Very near subways and bus stations that can take you all over Manhattan–and make you feel like you are a real New Yorker!

Two of the bedrooms are below the ground level and have windows looking up onto the patio. Smoking is not permitted in the apt. You may step outside to the patio if you must smoke.

I live on the 4th floor. The place is very quiet and, at times, it feels like you're in the country–especially in the warm months, when you can enjoy sitting in the backyard.

For insurance/safety reasons, children must be at least 10 years old. No pets are permitted.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Livia is a visual artist. I was born and reased in Rome Italy and move in this part of the world in 1975. My family is all in Rome. I feel a very lucky one, that I can go to Rome, on my 'grand mother mission' twice a year. Although I love living in NY, and I am always so busy that I don't have time to miss Rome/Italy…..The only thing …. I wish I could be spend more time with grandchildren I am also a Buddist, and I know how to be patient, and greatful.

Why the Owner Chose Upper West Side:
After living for 17 years in downtown Soho, at that time was just mainly artist . In 1974 I bought this town in exchange of a 3000 sq feet loft in Soho on Greene St. I was very lucky and happy, beacuse I coudn't stand what Soho had become after I had lived there for many years. The best part was, that I made a 100% profit with the sale of the loft. Of course I had also to pay lots of taxes…. but I choosed a safe haven to grow older and keep doing my art……Now between my apt on the top floor of the house, and the Art Student Luege on 57th St….just 3 subway stops on the C train from my house. Thanks ASL

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Among the best locations in Manhattan to live in, a quiet, residential neighborhood, nearby stores, great eatery , and entertainment, with easy access to all of Manhattan by subway and bus.
