About the property

Live In Quiet Luxury Like A Real New Yorker

This 400-square-foot studio with patio in a second-floor, pre-war walkup sleeps two in a comfy, new, queen-sized mattress with pure cotton sheets. A convertible sofa will accommodate a third person in comfort.

This apartment is not for people who want to make noise. The neighbors downstairs have an infant daughter who needs to be able to nap.

The apartment offers a respite from the hubbub that is located a few steps from the building's front door. A few blocks north, you will find KoreaTown's multitude of restaurants, the Morgan Library's architectural and literary gems, the Empire State Building's majestic presence and remnants of what used to be known as Ladies' Mile on 5th Avenue. A few blocks south you will find Madison Square Park and the Flatiron Building.

Note that the construction noise cited in some of the reviews has abated now that the exterior of the building is complete.

Nice studio

  • 5 of 5

Nice quiet studio just a short walk off Fifth Avenue. Tom met us and was very gracious, and gave us a rundown on the studio and local places to eat and purchase groceries. The studio was clean and the bathroom well stocked with toiletries. The window A/C was efficient, and the bed very comfortable. The studio had a nice patio which we unfortunately could not take great advantage of due to rain. There is also a well equipped kitchen, but as we ate out didn't use it extensively to cook. We had no issues with the studio. There is some construction going on nearby but did not affect us at all. Would definitely recommend the studio. Keep in mind it is in an older building as Tom describes, and is a walk up. Stairway is somewhat narrow for today's construction, but not trouble navigating with two suitcases.

Great location and well equipped apartment. Quiet at night and comfortable bed.

  • 4 of 5

Toms apartment is well located right in the heart of midtown NY city. The queen sized bed is comfortable and the apartment was quiet at night. The kitchen has most things you need and a dishwasher and big fridge. Located on the second floor the apartment has no elevator but there are not many stairs between each floor so quite manageable.

Great location, spacious, and clean.

  • 5 of 5

Location was perfect, many restaurants, shopping, subway, park, and several parking garages in walking distance. Property was clean and my puppy had fun running on the terrace. Neighborhood felt comfortable and safe. I would book this property again!

Fantastic central location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here! It was so amazing to be able to walk to time square or hop a subway to almost every where we wanted to go. While there we had a small problem that was addressed immediately, thanks Tom!

Owner's Response: Many thanks to my guests for their review and for their help fixing the "small problem," which turned out not to be that small -- a driving rain had resulted in a leak through the door from the patio into the house. I had no idea how it could be fixed and was about to call a professional when the guests returned to the apartment. One of them happened to repair doors for a living and immediately diagnosed the problem -- a crack in the door frame. I happened to have some supplies on hand; he shot a bead of caulk into the offending crack and solved the problem in short order. My role was limited to finding the caulk and the caulking gun. Thanks again for their stay, and for their help. Tom

Perfect Hideaway in the Middle of Everything!

  • 5 of 5

Wow! My daughter and I loved this place so much! It was in the middle of everything, close to great shops and restaurants, the subway, the Empire State Building, and it was clean and spacious! The outdoor space was really impressive as well. What more could you ask for in Manhattan for such a great price? The host was very responsive when we needed a little extra time to not lug our stuff around and was genuinely concerned with our comfort. Loved it! Next time I need an overnight in Manhattan, this will be my first choice!

Car: not necessary

A short stroll north of Madison Park, this apartment will doubtless give you an opportunity to live like a real New Yorker in a walkup apartment in the center of the city with a beautiful patio out back overlooking a famous church. Please note that this is not for parties or guests who want a place to make loud noise. The neighbors downstairs have an infant daughter who needs to be able to nap.
