About the property

Live In Quiet Luxury Like A Real New Yorker

This large studio with patio in a second-floor, pre-war walkup sleeps two in a comfy, new, queen-sized mattress with pure cotton sheets. A top-of-the-line inflatable mattress will accommodate a third person.

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 gustatorial offerings, 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 it can be noisy on weekdays. Construction on a nearby building begins at 7 a.m. and ends in mid-afternoon.

Clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

I went to the city for the Thanksgiving holiday with my husband and our 7yo. We really enjoyed having a nice place to come home to every evening that we felt like was our own. The apartment was clean and very efficient. We had everything we needed and anytime we called Tom he was quick to pick up and help with whatever we needed. The apartment is located in a good spot in the city. The subway was only a couple of blocks away and there were restaurants and a grocery store nearby. I would definitely stay here again.

Nice but not clean!

  • 3 of 5

We arrived more than 4 hours after the published check-in time to find that the apartment had not been cleaned after the last guests. The cleaners phoned an hour later to let us know where the clean sheets were kept. We made the bed; they came by the next morning. Once there, they did a good job. Nice view out the window, but the shades didn't stay up.

Owner's Response: My cleaner, who has recently given birth to her third child, got the dates mixed up and simply forgot -- her first such mistake in years. When she remembered, she called and offered to go to the apartment, but the guests said it was getting late for them, the apartment was not dirty and that they would change the sheets themselves. She showed up the next morning, apologized and cleaned. Somehow, I did not learn about this snafu until moments ago, when I read the review. I have called the guest to apologize and will return their cleaning fee. This is the first I have heard about problems with the shade. It is a double shade -- one to diffuse the light and the other to block it -- and it has two strings that go down the back. Sometimes they get snarled. I will fix it or replace it as needed. Tom

Loved This Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Tom, the owner, and this apartment are amazing. It was spacious by NYC standards and very well equipped. The bed is super comfortable. This apartment also has a great balcony with seating. We had one little snafu and Tom came and fixed it immediately.

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.
