About Tom Watkins

I am working for an NGO that requires I spend time in Geneva, so am often out of New York.

Tom Watkins purchased this apartment in 1982

Why Tom Watkins chose NoMad

Because it is in a great location from which the city's attractions are easily accessible -- steps off FifthAvenue between Flatiron, just to the south; Murray Hill, a block to the east; and Midtown, whose southern tip begins four blocks to the north. It's in the center of the Persian rug district, two blocks south of Korea Town and four blocks north of Madison Square Park.

What makes this apartment unique

A clean, quiet, calm, orderly and safe place of refuge that is within walking distance of many of New York's attractions.

Beautiful New York Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfect walking distance from Penn Station as well as many other restaurants, bars, and all other activities. The stop for the 6 train is also just a couple blocks away. The apartment itself is very spacious and very well kept. I did not here much city noise the entire time I stayed in the apartment and I was there on a busy weekend. The homeowner provided clear instructions, and offered way more than he needed to. He truly offers you a nice stay in his home. I would most definitely go back again. I felt like I was a big shot in a Manhattan apartment for the weekend and I didn't mind that at all. Five Stars and if I could give 6 I would. Waaaay better option than the hotels I was looking at.

Nice place, excellent location, good price

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for a four-day mini-vacation in New York. It was a great location in midtown.

A few reviewers of this apartment complained about noise. The place has three windows facing the street up four flights of stairs, and it is midtown with garbage trucks and construction and so on. I did get woken up one night (morning?) by garbage trucks but that is par for the course for this sort of midtown apartment. One thing we noticed when we arrived was that all the windows weren't fully closed and locked, which may have made things a bit noisier for other visitors. In any case, I am planning to come back to New York next month on a mixed business/pleasure trip and would like to rent this place again if the unit is available.

Great value if you are not very sensitive to noise.

Room great, location good, construction loud

  • 4 of 5

All nights were great and apartment is nicely appointed. When it was cold on the first night, Tim made sure I had a room heater the following day. Early mornings were full of backing trucks and banging hammers from construction of building next store. Good value overall. Look forward to coming back.

Walk to the lights of Times Square, the clubs of Greenwich Village, the restaurants of the Flatiron District, the galleries of Chelsea. Doubtless the best location you could find to have access to all that New York has to offer.
