"Location, 1 1/2 bathrooms and a patio. These were the selling points of this apartment for a 5 day trip with my husband and grandson. The location between 2 subway lines, near restaurants, markets and a block from Central Park couldn't be better. The patio was a private refuge after a day of sightseeing or for breakfast. Livia provided a notebook of recommendations for marketing and restaurants.
As mentioned by other reviewers, the 1/2 bath is actually a curtained off area in the master bedroom, so if privacy is an issue for you, the bedroom is unusable while someone is using the bathroom.
If reviewing this apartment on location alone, I would give it an Excellent rating. Because of some wear issues with towels, bedding & pillows and kitchen utensils, I'm giving it just a Good rating."

"My wife and I found Richard and Alice's apartment to be the perfect home base for our week-long stay in NYC. Its central location, just a block from MOMA and a few blocks from Central Park and the Theater District proved ideal for our needs as we could walk to many of our destinations. The tastefully decorated space felt like home with its original artwork, comfortable furniture, well-stocked kitchen and commodious storage all welcoming us like old friends. Speaking of welcome -- their son-in-law greeted us on our arrival and took us through the immaculate space, providing us with basic information on the operation of the various appliances, air conditioning units, etc. and answering our questions. The owners generously included an assortment of complimentary food such as coffee, milk, bread, fresh fruit, and a bottle of wine along with basic spices and condiments for our use. They also provided a mid-week house cleaning service which included fresh sheets and towels and vacuuming and dusting -- a welcome extra which enhanced our stay.
All of the neighbors we encountered in the building, from the building super to those we met in the lobby and elevator were friendly, kind, and welcoming. We had a wonderful seven days in New York, packed with activities and adventures. The fact that we could return to an apartment that felt like home at the end of each activity allowed us to rest and recuperate to be ready for the next adventure. We have stayed in numerous VRBO properties throughout the United States and Europe. We place Richard and Alice's apartment among the best of them and we put Richard and Alice at the top of list of hosts. They provided us with outstanding accommodations and were always available to answer our questions to insure that our stay at their apartment would be amazing... IT WAS!!"

"Me and my girlfriend stayed for a week in this excellent apartment. I don't think that you could find an apartment in N.Y city that's better than this one. It's quiet, had a lot of space and a comfortable bed, it was clean and we could always ask Angela a lot of questions before and during the stay and got answers that made our stay even easier. But the best part was the location. You walk to Empire State Building on 3-4 minutes, subway 3-4 minutes, Times square 7-8 minutes and you got a lot of restaurants and stores right outside the building. We would totally recommend this apartment and we would be happy to come again. Thank you!"
