*** 6 & 1/2 blocks to Macy's
*** 6 blocks to Penn Station

On East 30th Street between Park and Lexington Avenues, an elegant and
safe neighborhood.

You can get everywhere by the subway. Even more important is that we are in
center city and you can walk to many places. If you don't feel like walking, you
can take the bus. Two bus lines are on the corner, 3 bus lines are 1 & 1/2
blocks and 1 bus line is 4 blocks.

The area is the perfect place to stay for sight seeing, theater, restaurants,
clubs, cultural and sporting events, shopping and more.

Chose a spacious 1-bedroom apartment or add on an adjacent 2-room suite

The apartment sleeps 5 guests and the adjacent suite sleeps up to 5 additional guests.

After an exciting and fun filled day of sightseeing, shopping, museums and theater you can escape from the fast pace and relax in haven of peace and calm atmosphere...just around the corner from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Much bigger than most apartments. Rare large private garden & Full Size kitchen & dining area.


In NYC it's all about Location. When you want the Best Center City Location, email us. You will be surrounded by Attractions, Shopping, Restaurants, Theater and Museums. The subway is only 2 & 1/2 blocks away but you probably will not need it. You can walk or take a short ride on one of the nearby bus routes.

Home is a quiet private haven right in the midst of Manhattan. This is a real and upscale neighborhood where you will see New Yorkers and how they really live, eat where they eat (and not pay tourist prices for so so food). Walk to many of the tourist areas...they are lots of fun . Then come home to the Real New York.

Your Center City Apartment is just around the corner from the hustle and bustle of the big city.

Sit under the shady Elm Trees in your private walled garden and have a cup of tea or a glass of wine while you listen to the birds singing in the trees.

This private place is on a picturesque and much filmed tree lined residential block at East 30th Street and Park Avenue with easy access to just about all you want to see and do.
Soho is a quick ride south on the #6 subway which is just 2 1/2 blocks away. Or you can head north on the #6 to Museum Mile and the Metropolitan Museum. When you don't feel like walking, ride to Bloomingdale's with a stop right under the store. Madison Avenue # 1, #3 and #5 bus lines are 1 & 1/2 away and run north. The Lexington Avenue #101 bus line is on the corner 1/2 block away and runs south. Of course this being New York, you can always hop into a taxi or call car service.

Inside your apartment you'll find the romance and charm of Old New York with exposed brick walls, wide plank floors, a fireplace and original oil paintings. The spacious living room offers you comfortable seating for 10. Two of the chairs fold out into single beds if you need them and the single cushioned Bahama bed offers a comfortable night's sleep for another guest.

A quaint 150 year old opaque glass wall separates the living room and bedroom. Pamper yourself with an excellent night's sleep and wake up refreshed in the queen size bed with quality linens and 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 rain shower.

Have a bite to eat or a satisfying drink when ever you feel like it in a newly renovated full kitchen with large double door refrigerator/freezer with automatic ice maker, full stove with oven and full size dishwasher. The kitchen is nicely equipped with microwave, coffee pot, pots and pans, dishes, glassware and flatware.

The 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 is available for large families. The small downstairs room is furnished as an bedroom/library and has 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 queen size bed if you prefer. A 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 three units in a private 4 story townhouse. It is on the garden floor in the back and is exceptionally quiet, clean, safe and secure. You'll find many extra modern details such as high hat lights in all of the rooms, a security buzzer to open the front doors and quality windows and doors.

It is said that the famous dancer Isadora Duncan once lived here. We haven't been able to confirm this but like to believe that it is true. We hope that you will spend some time here, too.

Note: If our apartment is booked, please ask us about our friends' apartments. We will be happy to check for you.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: I love to meet new people. My main home is in Florida, but I come to NYC as often as possible. It is rewarding to share my knowledge of insider places with my guests. I wrote a book for my guests, 'How to Live Like a Real New Yorker in our Neighborhood'. It give suggestions about where to eat in all price ranges, museums, attractions, grocery shopping, luxury shopping, discount shopping, how to take the bus and subway, how to find your way around the city and lots more. I also write a blog about NYC with posts about restaurants, attractions, How to get Theater tickets and other Tips for Travelers. e-mail me for the link. You don't have to stay here to read it. I hope that I can inspire you to love NYC as as much as I do.

Why the Owner Chose Midtown:
This is the best location in Manhattan. Open Your Door and NYC is at Your Feet. You can walk to many attractions, great shopping, hundreds of restaurants in all price ranges and public transportation is minutes away.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:

Open your door and Step outside to feel all of the energy of NYC. Close your door and find a serene haven with a private walled garden, mature trees and birds. he apartment is in an especially nice and pretty neighborhood. It is *** 5 & 1/2 blocks to The Empire State Building *** 6 & 1/2 blocks to Macy's *** 6 blocks to Penn Station *** 1/2 block to Dover Market *** 14 blocks to Times Square *** 2 & 1/2 blocks to the subway.
