Built between 1928 and 1937, this group of bricks and stone building with interesting architectural details, confers a special atmosphere to this unique Upper East Side block. located between 2nd and 3rd Avenues. This block is often referred as the 'best block' on the UES because of this architectural value and its very central location with very best shops and restaurants nearby. Central Park is 4 blocks away (there's 2 bikes and helmets available in the basement for your leisure) and all the museums are walking distance (Whitney, Metropolitan, Neue Gallery, etc,... ).
The apartment is very clear and calm, as the view is well above other buildings and not obstructed.
It's a 950 sqf (85sqm) one bedroom (queen size bed) with a large dinning/sitting room (2 sofas), 1 Bathroom, 1 walking closets and 2 additional closets in the entry and a brand new high end kitchen. The apartment is freshly painted and fully equipped with 2 TV, internet, wireless printer, air-conditioning in all rooms and a safe box.
It's a perfect pied-a-terre for a professional traveler or a very convenient base for exploring the city in couple or in family (2 children max).
We loved it and found it was easy to get around to stores resturants. The apartment was very clean and cozy.It had everything you would need. Loved the kitchen and views out all the windows.would love to go back and stay there again.
Owner response: Thank you Sharon and Brandon! We look forward to having you back real soon!
All the best for a bright, happy, healthy and adventurous New Year!

About the owner: We are both professional working in Entertainment and Banking industries for several decades and have developed businesses in LatAm and Europe.
Why the Owner Chose Upper East Side: We spent almost a year to find our dream apartment in New-York as we decided to buy a property, after our children went their own way ! As this was a downsizing from the fabulous brownstone we rented, we made sure to find the best for us !
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The building is part of a group of architectural properties developed by the Bing & Bing brothers in the late 20's. The building is very cozy and private with only 11 floors. The layout is very spacious and comfortable.
The location is just perfect, closed to every best shops and restaurants. It's 20 minutes walk to mid-town. Central Park is only few bloc away. It's the heart of UES !
