About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 7

Location, Location, Location ! The listing photo is the same photo in Hugh Grant's movie "Music and Lyrics" !

This location is amazing and it has a lot of value especially during cold or rainy days when it's hard to catch a taxi. You are in a great walking neighborhood, AND right across the street from an express and local train !

Newly renovated one bedroom, wood floors, spacious living room, kitchen, and bath. Fantastic location at 72nd and Amsterdam, close to Central Park entrance on 72nd (Dakota building, Strawberry Fields, Boat House). Has cable TV in Living Room and Bedroom, and wireless internet. Trader Joes is conveniently across the street. Apt is four floors above street level in a walk up building.

Also VERY CONVENIENTLY across the street is the 1,2,3 subway (2,3 run express stops). You're one stop from Times Sq, 2 stops to Penn, 3 stops to a short walk to W Village. Excellent restaurants and Cafes on Columbus Ave close by. 10 Minute walk to Lincoln Square where there is the Opera, Ballet, Philharmonic. 10 minute walk to Hudson River boardwalk.

There is a plush comfortable queen size bed in the bedroom. For your protection, the pillow top mattress is wrapped completely inside a premium fabric bed bug protector and no comfort is compromised. For guests that want accommodations for 3 there's a very comfortable long one piece (down wrapped) cushion sofa that sleeps one. For 4 guests a comfortable pillow top queen size air mattress will fit in nicely in the large living area. For 6 guests, an extra queen size pillow top air mattress can fit in the large living room. Bedding and towels will be provided for the selected number of guests staying. Attention all ladies: I have a hair dryer for you in the bathroom, no need to bring one !

Convenient free pick up and drop off same day laundry service available if needed. No need to pay the expensive hotel laundry service.

Finally, I'm a great host, you will have access to my cell phone if you have any questions related to the apartment and for things to do or places to see. My goal is to have you become a repeat guest !

Please note: Whenever possible, I will allow for an early check in and/or a late checkout. My neighbor (only two apartments per floor too!) is also very nice and when possible, she allows my guests to leave their luggage at her place upon arrival or departure.

About Richard

Hi I'm Richard. I am originally from New York and lived most of my adult life in Los Angeles before returning to NY five years ago. I work as an independent financial advisor. In my spare time I love traveling and learning about new cultures and languages.

Here in Manhattan, I love Central Park close by and find myself biking, rollerblading, and simply walking a few times a week in the park. I'm a people person and enjoy meeting new people from different countries. If we meet and you speak a different language, I will probably be asking you how to say something in your language.

I look forward to meeting you and will do whatever I can to make your stay in NY enjoyable.

Why Richard chose Lincoln Square

Can't beat the location: Close to the best entrance of Central Park, John Lennon's home and Strawberry Fields PLUS you have the option to travel quickly via express subways to anywhere in Manhattan just from across the street !

What makes this apartment unique

Easily accessible to major tourist attractions without the congestion of tourist hotel locations !

Excellent experience and great location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our experience at the apartment and our dealings with Richard. It has pretty much everything you need and the best location. It is very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen and bath are nice sized. The bed in the bedroom is very comfortable. Yes, there are stairs you have to navigate. But other than having to get our suitcases up them, it wasn't a problem. Lots of restaurants and stores right there. Subway is literally right across the street. We had a great experience and recommend this apartment for your stay in NYC.

Location location location!!

My wife and I visited NY with our 4yo and 7yo and we felt safe walking around this neighborhood. The apartment worked out very well for us. Central Park is an easy walk, the subway is literally right across the street and anything you could need is in this neighborhood just steps away. Not once did I feel unsafe taking the kids on the subway Downtown from this station. We looked at staying in a hotel downtown and we're glad we didn't. Don't spend the money on a tiny hotel room in the busy city, stay here in the upper west side and live like a New Yorker.

I would also like to add that any time I needed to get ahold of Richard he picked up the phone when I called and when I texted he responded to my text messages very quickly. Communication is very important to me and I'm always tied to my iPhone so my expectations were definitely met.

If we visit NY again, I will definitely rent this apartment again.

Great Location on the Upper West Side

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I traveled to NYC for the NY Marathon. We wanted to stay on the UWS. This apartment is located in a great location close to restaurants, shops, subways and Central Park. We enjoyed our time and the weather was perfect for watching and running the marathon.

Thank you to Richard for his great communication and accommodating our request for a late check out.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the location, size and condition of the apartment - the photos are very accurate.

(In fact we thought that the apartment seemed even bigger than the pictures made it look!)

Richard checked up on us when we arrived and responded immediately when I had questions.

Our family of 3 stayed in this spacious apartment during the last week in August (90+ degrees!) and the 2 window air conditioners along with the ceiling fans kept the rooms cool and comfortable. My husband and I slept on the air bed in the living room and gave our daughter the bedroom. He said he slept better on the air mattress then our bed at home!

Shopped at Fairway, Citarella's and Trader Joe's and even cooked a couple meals in the generous kitchen, though very tempting just to visit all the great restaurants in the area.

Don't worry about the four flights of stairs, it's only difficult the first time when you are carrying up the luggage, after that it's a piece of cake.

I would absolutely love to stay at Richard's flat the next time we plan a trip to NYC!

Don't hesitate! This is a great place.

  • 5 of 5

This property is located on the corner of 72nd and Amsterdam which is an amazing location. You can easily walk to Central Park and to subways. I got breakfasts at grand daisy bakery downstairs one day. So good! Another day I walked to the famous Levain bakery. Amazing cookies. I walked to Barney Greengrass and got some great bagels for another breakfast. There's a great sushi place on 72nd on the other side of Broadway. I grabbed juices at grays papaya just about every day to go with our breakfasts. You are just steps away from the subway and within a few stops you can do anything you want in NYC. As for the apartment itself, it was bigger than I imagined a NY apartment to be. We had plenty of room for my family of 5. The kitchen has all you'll need. It was clean. The walk up the stairs just took a day to get used to. After that, the kids loved it and were racing up. Richard was very helpful and responsive. You can't go wrong with this place.
