Host was wonderful. Room was clean, cool and located perfectly for our agenda.
The apartment was beautiful and I enjoyed reading and writing in the living room. There are interesting picture and lovely objects that do not appear in the advert. . Everything was immaculate. The neighborhood with Columbia, john the Divine, the beautiful park Riverside( I think) Grants Tomb. Very walkable. Cute little restaurants all over . Pret a manger a healthy fast food place and an all night super market in the bldg. Great. Transportation also
2 Drawbacks 1) I was alone. Two people in that bedroom must be very skinny and very much in love.(:
2) I was annoyed at paying in Euros. New York is in America. I'm in America. Here we use Dollars.
Great place, great host
This was amazingly located as it offered both beauty and convenience -- riverside park and morningside heights are gems. Samuel was very kind and approachable, and he keeps a very tidy home. Thanks, Samuel.

We chose New York City to visit for our 60 Anniversary and selected this apartment based on the description on the VRBO site and positive reviews therein. We wanted a place where we could come and go from by using subway and bus connections throughout the city, have local shopping nearby with grocery, deli, restaurant, fast food and nearby walks to attractions. The location of this apartment turned out to be just the place we were wanted. We walked along the Riverside Parkway overviewing the Hudson River to Riverside Church , General Grant's Memorial, to Morning Side Park, to northern section of Central Park, along Amsterdam Ave. We used the subway and bus to visit the Cloisters farther north along the Hudson as well as as many of the more popular attractions "downtown".
The location is right across the street from the M60 Select Bus Service (SBS) from/to LGA Airport - for us it was approx one hour ride; 55 minutes to airport in morning, one hour 20 minutes to apartment in mid-afternoon. The cost is $2.75 per person each way. Use Google to check MTA on to how to access and pay for the M60 SBS.
Although the bedroom/bath area is small, we found it manageable as the room had a chest for storing clothing, headboard cubicles for the same and hallway hooks for hanging jackets, bags, etc. The hallway has a closet/hangars for items you want to store - also baggage can be stored there. Samuel provided room in the shared kitchen for refrigerated and frozen food, shelves in cabinets for dry foods. The kitchen contains the necessary cooking and eating - you just have to clean up after yourself. We used the kitchen for breakfasts by obtaining food items from the 24 hour grocery/deli just downstairs around the corner; the deli has a large variety of prepared hot/cold items from apps to salads, main items/meals to deserts. The kitchen has everything to prepare and serve what you choose. We found it to be just like home.
Samuel also shares his dining room and living room, he is seldom present(but easily reachable via text/telephone as his work is nearby. We found these rooms to again be just like home; spread a map on the table to look for places to visit, couch and chairs to sit and read, converse or just relax. The tall, wide windows in both rooms make it light and cheerful.
As to noise and disturbance there is none to very little. We slept soundly every night; BETTER than at home!
An excellent home - we highly recommend this apartment.
