Upper West Side apartment description

Location, Location, Location !

This location is amazing and it has a lot of value especially during cold or rainy days when it's hard to catch a taxi. You are right across the street from an express train !

Newly renovated one bedroom, wood floors, spacious living room, kitchen, and bath. Fantastic location at 72nd and Amsterdam, close to Central Park entrance on 72nd (Dakota building, Strawberry Fields, Boat House). Has cable TV in Living Room and Bedroom, and wireless internet. Trader Joes is conveniently across the street. Apt is four floors above street level in a walk up building.

Also VERY CONVENIENTLY across the street is the 1,2,3 subway (2,3 run express stops). You're one stop from Times Sq, 2 stops to Penn, 3 stops to a short walk to W Village. Excellent restaurants and Cafes on Columbus Ave close by. 10 Minute walk to Lincoln Square where there is the Opera, Ballet, Philharmonic. 10 minute walk to Hudson River boardwalk.

There is a plush comfortable queen size bed in the bedroom. For your protection, the pillow top mattress is wrapped completely inside a premium fabric bed bug protector and no comfort is compromised. For guests that want accommodations for 3 there's a very comfortable long one piece (down wrapped) cushion sofa that sleeps one. For 4 guests a comfortable pillow top queen size air mattress will fit in nicely in the large living area. For 6 guests, an extra queen size pillow top air mattress can fit in the large living room. Bedding and towels will be provided for the selected number of guests staying. Attention all ladies: I have a hair dryer for you in the bathroom, no need to bring one !

Convenient free pick up and drop off same day laundry service available if needed. No need to pay the expensive hotel laundry service.

Finally, I'm a great host, you will have access to my cell phone if you have any questions related to the apartment and for things to do or places to see. My goal is to have you become a repeat guest !

Please note: I have many positive reviews from Airbnb (Just joined VRBO) - Whenever possible, I will allow for an early check in and/or a late checkout. My neighbor (only two apartments per floor too!) is also very nice and when possible, she allows my guests to leave their luggage at her place upon arrival or departure.

              Owner info

              About the owner: Hi I'm Richard. I am originally from New York and lived most of my adult life in Los Angeles before returning to NY five years ago. I work as an independent financial advisor. In my spare time I love traveling and learning about new cultures and languages. Here in Manhattan, I love Central Park close by and find myself biking, rollerblading, and simply walking a few times a week in the park. I'm a people person and enjoy meeting new people from different countries. If we meet and you speak a different language, I will probably be asking you how to say something in your language. I look forward to meeting you and will do whatever I can to make your stay in NY enjoyable.

              Why the Owner Chose Upper West Side:
              Can't beat the location: Close to the best entrance of Central Park, John Lennon's home and Strawberry Fields PLUS you have the option to travel quickly via express subways across the street !
