About the property

Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

'Cozy' two-bedroom brownstone apt, sleeps up to four people. Located on the Upper West Side's most lovely street, a half-block from Central Park and a few minutes'walk from major subway stations.

It's the street pictured in Nora Ephron's:'You've Got Mail' and dozens of other movies -- a quaint neighborhood with food markets, newsstands, coffee shops and bars, and your choice of restaurants almost outside the door.

You can run along the reservoir in Central Park or walk across to the Metropolitan Museum. The Museum of Natural History is minutes away, as is the Jewish Museum and the Conservatory Gardens.

The apartment is two floors up. Its rear windows look out on sycamore and willow trees, and the only sounds are those of the birds in the morning.

**No Pets allowed **NO SMOKING **Please check calendar for availability

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect, the apartment was clean and gave us everything we needed for our family of four. Vera was very responsive and sent us tips prior to the visit, which was very helpful. This was our first visit to NYC, and I would definitely want to stay here again in the future. I loved waking up in the morning, and strolling to Central Park for a morning walk to start my day.

Best location EVER!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four traveled to NYC to celebrate high school and college graduations! We couldn't have picked a more perfect location as the home-base to our 5 day adventure all over the city! This is a true neighborhood where people walk their dogs and kids go to school! So much within walking distance, but having the Mani Market on the corner was awesome! Two subway stations close by for quick access EVERYWHERE! Being so close to the park was a perfect perk for the runners in our group. The washer/dryer was a big plus along with the great kitchen. This is NYC so expect the bedrooms to be small! Also, it was unseasonably hot for a few days during our visit and the AC window units didn't put out a lot of cold air, which made for some uncomfortable sleep! We would definitely stay here again!

Fantastic Upper West Side apartment!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this apartment for four days in May, 2017. We were extremely pleased with the trip. The apartment is bright, clean, and had plenty of room for three adults and a child (it will sleep more.) The location was perfect, 1/2 block from Central Park, two blocks from a subway stop, a 15 min ride to Broadway and Times Square, a 20 min walk to the Met. There is a market, Whole Foods, multiple places for coffee and eateries between 1/2 block and four blocks away. The building and neighborhood were quiet, and we felt safe at all times including walking back from a show at 11PM. The owners communicated regularly with us prior to the stay. They mailed the keys so we had them with us when we arrived. They included a two page introduction to the neighborhood which was very helpful. Super nice folks who genuinely want you to enjoy your stay! I highly recommend this property!

Great Neighborhood

  • 3 of 5

This Upper West Side two bedroom apartment was in an area perfect for our NYC stay with our daughter. Central Park being so close afforded us many wonderful walks. The apartment was clean and the bed was comfortable. The heating system is steam (which we aren't use to), and the unit in the second bedroom rattled keeping our daughter awake whenever it kicked on throughout the night. We had no control over this and it was to say the least a bit aggravating. The kitchen was spacious and clean with all the amenities you need. The corner market just down the street had everything we needed for snacks and breakfasts. Wine shop close for a great selection. The bathroom was fine except the towel rod broke the very first day. The Wi-Fi information was incorrect in the literature the owners mailed to us just prior to our trip; a little of searching at the apartment provided the updated information. The owners were unresponsive throughout our stay.
