About the Property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 1-1/2 Baths (Sleeps 3-5)

I lived in this apt when I first bought the house. It has my own personal touch . I live in the same building on the top floor (it's a townhouse), and take care of the whole house with the help of my affectionate Hortensia who keeps this apt clean and in good shape.
Full-service kitchen with microwave, toaster, coffee maker, and dishwasher. Full Bath + 1/2 bath. Sunken Art Deco living room with parquet floors and high ceilings. View and use of a private garden patio, large Cable TV, and WiFi Internet.

Tasteful Italian-style living. Close to subways and buses, one block from Central Park, and 3 blocks from Riverside Park. On the Gold Coast of the Upper West Side. Very conveniently located near a supermarket and several gourmet stores, plenty of very good restaurants, and lots of shopping.

Nearby: Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Columbia University, Museum of Natural History. Very close to subways and bus stations that can take you all over Manhattan–and make you feel like you are a real New Yorker!

Two of the bedrooms are below the ground level and have windows looking up onto the patio. Smoking is not permitted in the apt. You may step outside to the patio if you must smoke.

The place is very quiet and, at times, it feels like you're in the country–especially in the warmer months, when you can enjoy sitting in the backyard.

For insurance/safety reasons, children must be at least 10 years old. No pets are permitted.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: Livia is a painter. I was born and raised in Rome, Italy and moved to this part of the world in 1975. I feel very lucky because I am bicoastal. I have 2 granchildren that for the time being live in Rome. For now, I spend more time in NY, and I am always busy. I don't have time to miss the place where I was born, nor my family as I visit Italy frequently. Come and visit me in the big apple.

Why the Owner Chose Upper West Side, New York, NY, USA:
After 9/11 the Upper West Side has become a much quieter place to live. I was able to by this property in 1994, and I really enjoy working and living here as an artist . Walking in the nearby parks (Central Park & Riverside Park) makes me feel close to nature. There is also easy access with public transportation to all different kinds of attractions- museums, theaters, restaurants and more.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Among the best locations in Manhattan to live, a quiet, residential neighborhood, nearby stores, great restaurants, and entertainment, with easy access to all of Manhattan by subway and buses.
