Upper West Side apartment description

Best family location in New York City! What fun! Across from the Museum of Natural History, a block from Central Park and Diana Ross playground, 2 blocks from the Children's Museum, near Shake Shack. This property can be combined with vrbo # 284230, if you are traveling with a large group, or 2 families. That would create a duplex apartment with 3-4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, plus terrace.
This is the top floor of a 23 foot wide brownstone townhouse, in the most desirable location on the Upper West Side. 3 flights up, no elevator, this apartment is for someone who really wants to live like a New Yorker, and doesn't mind the steps. The walk is worth it! Bright and private, with large rooms filled with beautiful detail, and tastefully furnished in eclectic Manhattan taste. The townhouse is owner-occupied, although you probably won't see or hear us. However, we want to share this truly special property with guests that appreciate its uniqueness, and take care of it like their own home.
1300 square foot, floor-thru (full floor). Lots of light. Faces north and south. Large living room (22 X 20) furnished with Italian leather sofas, Murano Italian lamps, and antiques. One bedroom has a queen size bed, and the second has 2 single beds, which can be put together as a king. Sofa bed in living room. Charming old-fashioned tub with new plumbing, large bright kitchen with skylight. Original artwork.
Live in the middle of everything! Restaurants, shopping, movies, concerts, museums, antique shops (thrift shops!), Sunday morning flea market and farmer's market. Enjoy being steps away from Central Park and the Museum of Natural History, across the street from the M79 crosstown bus to the East Side, a short walk to Lincoln Center, and around the corner from everybody's favorite brunch spots: Sarabeth's, Nice/Matin, Fred's, Good Enough to Eat, and, of course, Zabar's and Zabar's Cafe. One block to the subway.
There is absolutely no smoking permitted anywhere on the property. No pets allowed.
THIS PROPERTY AND VRBO# 284230 CAN BE RENTED TOGETHER TO CREATE A 3 BEDROOM, 2 BATH DUPLEX WITH TERRACE. PLEASE EMAIL ABOUT THIS OPTION.
Come see for yourself what a joy it is to live in Manhattan!
