About Annie Murphy
Born and raised in NYC. I couldn't love NY and all it has to offer more. I used to be a dancer and owned the first pilates studio in Brooklyn. We are a family of 4 now and live in Florida and NYC. Our apartment is the perfect pied a terre for us! My 8 and 11 year old love coming to NYC and staying in the apartment. The Upper Westside is extremely kid friendly not to mention countless activities for adults!
Annie Murphy purchased this Apartment in 1995
Why Annie Murphy chose Manhattan
This apartment has all the comforts of home while visiting NYC. You can cook your own meals or order in every meal. It is an intimate building where your neighbors are very friendly. While walking up to the apartment you might enjoy passing a professional rehearsal or performance in the theater. When you enter the apartment it is a quiet peaceful oasis from the busy city. When renovating the apartment we used some of the best appliances, tile work, bathroom fixtures, bed, couch and chair so it would be a reminder of a great hotel suite. When you walk out the door you are nearby parks, great restaurants and the historic neighborhood of Manhattan's Upper West Side.
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment has a large Terrace which is a wonderful way to enjoy breakfast in the morning. Terraces are rare to find in most NYC apartment buildings and its the only apartment in the building with a terrace. One of the best wine stores in NYC, Acker Merrill is right next door and 2 excellent coffee bars are located right on the block. A fantastic small gourmet Pizza parlor My Pie opened up a few doors down and a great bagel store Zuckers recently opened a block away on Columbus Ave. 3 amazing Sushi restaurants are only a block or two away. The location is extremely convenient to getting around New York City as all the major subway lines are on 72nd Street and within a block or two. The best parks in New York are 2 blocks away, Central Park and Riverside Park. Riverside Park is on the Hudson River and there is a great walkway on the waterfront. We love the Upper West Side as its filled with beautiful Brownstone buildings and has kept it's unique and charming character.

Live like a local
Annie and Peter were lovely hosts. There was water, wine, beer and milk awaiting us. The location is wonderful. We peeked in on rehearsals for the theater in the building , we were graciously invited to attend but had plans every night in the city.
Great 40th bday week
Comfortable and host is very accommodating. Close to subway. Lots of restaurants around. Thank you very much!
Just what we wanted
From booking with the owner till leaving everything was perfect for us. Situated 100 yards from the subway and 6 mins from Central Park this apartment was perfect for us. Loads of coffee shops and restaurants within easy walking distance we were spoilt for choice. The outside space was lovely for early morning coffee and a glass of wine before bed. Very comfy bed fully equipped kitchen area and a nice size bathroom with a very good shower. And the landlady Annie could not have done more for us to make us fell at home. From meeting us at the door when we arrived to letting us leave our packed bags safely on the day we left. A lovely lady. We would not hesitate to book this apartment again if we come back to NYC or to recommend it to our family and friends. Thanks for letting us stay.
Great apartment, great location
In the middle of a vibrant neighbourhood, close to every place you need/want, this is a super apartment--nicely appointed, with a very functional kitchen for those who love to cook. Much enjoyed!
A lovely place to stay
We had a nice time staying at this apartment on the Upper West Side. The location was perfect! So close to a nice breakfast place (Le Pain), Central Park, and the subway. The apartment was clean and the patio was especially nice! The owner was very friendly and helpful. She even had someone meet us there upon arrival to show us around. And we had a few questions during our stay and she responded to us immediately. She also had some small necessities available like water, milk, and shampoo, etc. People should be aware that it is a 4th floor walk up, no elevator. And it is above a night club that does get loud. If guest brought a sound machine for the night, it should drown out the noise just fine. We were very happy with our stay here!
Thank you Debbie for your review and it was a pleasure to have you stay in the apartment. I just wanted to clarify that there is a small theater in the building (not a nightclub). Usually the sound does not bleed into the apartment, as most of the shows are Piano based if there is music. We had a problem with one show that played too loud and it has since been cancelled. So sound should not be an issue. Thanks again for your review and very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay.
Great location; attentive and responsive hosts
Some problems with electrical appliances which owners tried to quickly address.
Thank you David for your review. It was a pleasure to host you. Sorry again about any electrical issues. We have since updated the electric in the apartment. So all is working very well!
There is everything from cycling and boating in Central Park to Theater and Jazz performances within 10 blocks of the apartment at Lincoln Center. Enjoy the upscale boutiques of Columbus Ave to the many excellent cafes and restaurants nearby on the Upper West Side. The apartment is also only 2 blocks from Riverside Park which is a beautiful park on the Hudson River. Riverside Park has a great walkway to a nearby cafe on the Hudson River as well as tennis courts. It's a great place to take a walk or jog.
The amazing Museum of Natural History is 7 blocks away and they have a great Planetarium thats perfect for kids and adults.
The Broadway Theater district is one express subway stop away.
72nd Street is very centrally located while also a very nice NYC neighborhood surrounded by beautiful Parks and Brownstone buildings.
