The apartment is located on the 4th floor of a charming townhouse building -3 flights to walk up the original wide staircase. The apartment has been renovated and has a very contemporary feel, but retains some of the elements of the original turn of the century building with exposed brick walls in both the living room and the bedroom. The building is very close to Riverside Park- so it is exceptionally quiet in the evenings. The entryway and kitchen and bathroom all have black granite flooring, in addition to black granite counter tops in the kitchen and the bathroom. Full size stainless refrigerator, Miele dishwasher and ceramic topped electric stove complete this pocket-sized kitchen. Please note that there is no tub- just a walk in shower featuring frosted glass enclosure. The sofa in the living room is best used to sleep one single adult, or 1-2 small children for maximum comfort.
Nearby on Broadway, just 2 blocks away from the apartment, there are stores to accommodate your every need; groceries and prepared foods from Fairway Market, Citarella, and the well known Zabar's, pharmacies, banks, liquor stores, Starbucks, unique clothing and gift boutiques, Bed Bath and Beyond and many others. The location is convenient to shopping at renowned Madison Avenue, Fifth Avenue, department stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys, cultural sites like the famous Fifth Avenue 'museum mile' with the Metropolitan Museum and Guggenheim and other tourist attractions such as Rockefeller Center, MoMa Modern Art Museum, Times Square and the Broadway Theater district. Most of these places are within walking distance (about 15-30 minutes depending) and public transportation, local buses and subways, are all located nearby.
