Property description

Lovely Private Rooftop Penthouse Studio available! This Studio sits on top of the Parc Coliseum with the rooftop as your private space. The Terraced area of the rooftop is surrounded by some of New York's finest architecture including the Ansonia and the Alexandria. At night you can see the lights and some of the buildings located in Time Square, and all of The Freedom Tower, which is lit.

With large windows on three of the four studio walls, and a private terrace on a private rooftop outside of the windows, you will feel like you are staying in a small house while living 1/2 block from the 72 street subway stop on New York's Upper West Side! This cool studio has 2 private side-by-side elevators which you key for access to the Penthouse. There is a fully equipped kitchen and full bath with shower and tub. The studio living space is shaped like a large dog bone with the main living space on one end the elevators in the middle and the kitchen and bath at the other end.

Start your morning with coffee on the terrace under your sun umbrella and feast your eyes on lovely architecture and sky. Spend your day walking to numerous neighborhood locations, or grab a cab or subway at the end of the street, then return to unwind with a glass of wine in the cool breeze of the outdoors before stepping out for the evening! This time of year, a coat is required!
-3 blocks to Central Park
-3 blocks to The Hudson River, The Hudson River Park,
Pier Restaurant and bike trail that runs the entire length
of Manhattan
-3.5 blocks to Lincoln Center
-5 blocks to the Museum of Natural History
-1/2 block to the 72 street subway

The bed is a Sterns and Forest Queen with 600 thread count sheets. There is a 40' television with cable and Roku for streaming Netflix, Macintosh computer and WiFi, a multi-purpose print, copy, scan machine. The kitchen has everything you need to cook, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and the bathroom shower is marble. I am the second tenant to rent the space since renovation and there are full laundry facilities in the basement.

The Penthouse comes with Fluffy the female cat. You will only see her a little at first as she is a bit timid, however, you will be responsible for feeding her daily. Cat liter is out on the rooftop in a quant old wooden dog house so you won't be bothered by that!

I realize this is not the season to be outside, however, the feeling of isolation in such a busy city is a rare oasis!!! And, being able to look out, or even better to walk right out your own door for a private view of the city is an amazing morning, noon, or evening event!

Owner info

About the owner: Born and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan I had a great life living with the resources the University of Michigan had to offer. After graduating from college, I taught elementary education and continued my education until I graduated again and became the Director of John Denver's Wildwood School in Aspen, Co. 10 years later my son was born. Wow, no time for anything but wanting to be a mom. The bills had to be payed however so I started my own company which I still own and run today. Built on the shoulders of my mother's company (Calico 'N Things), CNT Pattern Co. is very much a homegrown business. As sole proprietor, I'm one of those lucky kids who got the opportunity to return to the soft down of mother's wing. The knowledge she shares with me provides the base on which my company is standing. After moving close enough to my home in Aspen to fully enjoy her grandchild, my mother encouraged me to produce patterns for her company. I had taught school, run my own school and written a book titled 'Building Self-Esteem For Decision Making: A How-To Handbook for Parents and Educators of Young Learners - Ages 3-7' (now there's a mouthful). With a desire to build a little more self-esteem of my own, I decided to follow my mother's suggestion.

Why the Owner Chose Upper West Side:
If you like the feeling of solitude, this space with it's windows and views wherever you look, above the bustle of the city is for you. It is quiet, yet uniquely located to some of New York's greatest performances at Lincoln Center! And New York's gem Central Park as well as The Fairway Market, Citarella's.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
It is amazing to ride up to the top floor of the Parc Coliseum in an elevator and have the doors open into your apartment! 5 steps out of the elevator, open your french door and walk out onto your very own private rooftop with views of some of the greatest architecture in New York, The Ansonia, World Trade Center, Trump Tower.
