  • Great Location, A Little Small

    "I spent two months in this apartment and had a wonderful stay. For me, the location was unbeatable -- two blocks from Central Park and three blocks from the 79th Street subway stop, close to Zabar's, Fairway, and lots of great restaurants. 15 minutes across the park to the Met. While this is what passes for a one-bedroom in NYC, it's actually one large room that has been divided in half with a bathroom at the far end of the bedroom and a "kitchen" carved out of one corner in the living room. Cooking was pretty much out of the question other than reheating and microwaving, but with Seamless and so many restaurant that will deliver, I didn't need to cook. The pictures are accurate, although the kitchen is a little tired. Because it's on the ground floor, you have to keep the lower blinds closed unless you want pedestrians to be able to see inside. The landlords were responsive to anything we needed and the other tenants in the building were very friendly."

  • great townhouse for our large group!

    "Spacious townhouse on 4 floors: basement with a pullout sofa, bathroom, and TV. 1st floor with living room and kitchen; 2nd and 3rd floors with a bathroom and 2 bedrooms each - one bedroom with a queen bed and the other bedroom on each floor with two twin beds. Location is what it is - close to Central Park, close to lots of restaurants and bars on Columbus, Broadway, and Amsterdam, close to Columbia and Morningside Heights, and so on. Either you want to be there, or you don't. It was a nice 30 minute walk to the theatre area. Easy to get around with Gett, Via, Lyft, and Uber. Three heads-ups: First, the bedrooms on the 2nd and 3rd floors use a pretty narrow staircase; not an issue for us, but keep that in mind. Second, the kitchen is not stocked with anything consumable; there's a Whole Foods nearby and a few small markets around the corner. Third, noise from the street travels into the house surprisingly well; not a big deal, but if you are expecting complete silence of a hotel, this isn't the place for you. The property managers were easy to work with. All in all, it was a great find for us and we'd return in a heartbeat."

  • Comfortable and convenient lodging in a safe and great neighborhood.

    "Perfect for our needs, but may not be so for everyone. We will definitely and happily return. Pros: The mattress is comfortable. The room is a nice size for two people, with ample dresser space, a large closet with more than enough hangers, and high ceilings. The apartment is walking distance from Central Park, Riverside Park, the 70th Street Pier, Lincoln Center, Columbus Circle, Trader Joe's, Fairway Market, and Zabar's. The wifi. TV, coffee maker, and fridge all work. The two large windows let in a lot of natural light. The building was quiet during the week that we stayed. Cons: It's a 30-step walk-up, which didn't bother us, but could be a problem for some. The pillows were ridiculously thin, and to us, were useless. We provided our own. I suggested to the manager that they provide two feather pillows and two hypoallergenic pillows of good quality, and he said he would pass on my suggestion to the owner - so if you are at all fussy about pillows, inquire to see if they have improved the pillows since our visit. There are no outlets close to the bed, so if you like to use your electronics in bed while you charge them, you'll need to bring two six or eight foot extension cords, one for each side of the bed. We stayed during the winter, when the outside temperature was in the 20's and 30's. The heat for the apartment is provided by an old steam radiator which you must manually turn on and off. When it is on, the room gets too hot; when it's off, the room gets too cold, unless you regulate the temperature by cracking the window a little and letting the cold air temper the heat from the radiator. Even with the fluctuating outside temperatures, we were able to estimate how much we needed to open the window to achieve a comfortable indoor environment, but some people might not want to fuss this way to regulate the room temperature. The double hung windows open only from the top, so to open or close the windows, you have to stand on a chair. This was no problem for us, but could be a hassle for some people. Some tips: Trader Joe's and Fairway Market are usually crowded and sometimes miserable places to shop. There is a small neighborhood market, called Jubilee, on Freedom Place between 68th and 69th Streets - that market is almost never too crowded. Also, there's a CVS on the corner of 70th Street and West End Avenue, which carries a lot of staples like milk, juice, soda, cereal, snacks, and other essentials for apartment living."
