Owner info

Year Purchased: 1982

About the owner: I live in Atlanta, Georgia, and travel about two weeks per month to New York for work and pleasure. During the times I'm gone, I rent the apartment. I typically send the keys via mail, and ask that you return them to me via mail when you're through. The building superintendent is reliable.

Why the Owner Chose Midtown:
The neighborhood is centrally located between Flatiron just to the south, Murray Hill a couple of blocks to the east and Midtown four blocks to the north. It's smack dab in the center of the Oriental rug district, two blocks south of KoreaTown and six blocks north of Eleven Madison Park.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
A clean, quiet, calm, orderly and safe place of refuge that is within walking distance of many of New York's attractions.
