The space

Hello, and thank you for viewing my page.

I have a large airy very sunny bedroom to rent which is located 1 1/2 blocks from Central Park and 2 blocks from Riverside. The bed is full/queen with 3 windows in the room and very lovely sheets. The bathroom is shared and towels etc are provided. I am a gym goer, so I shower there daily. The kitchen is charming with new appliances and old world detail and you are welcomed to use it. You may help yourself to a french press cafe in the morning with a croissant. The apartment is on the top floor (9th) with elevator. One flight up to the roof, the view is east side across the park and down toward midtown Manhattan. The apartment is quiet.


The apartment is 1 1/2 blocks from Central Park. Just walk or take the Cross Town bus across the park and you will be at the Met Museum on 5th Avenue. Museum Mile - Guggenheim,Frick,Nueve Gallerie. If you are a runner, conveniently located to the Reservoir path for running. National History is a 2 blocks away as well as The New York Historical Museum. Restaurants and bars within walking distance on the avenues - Columbus and Amsterdam. A ten minute walk and you are at Lincoln Center. Subways the A,B,C lines 2 blocks and the 1,2,3, 3 blocks. You can get anywhere in NYC from here - 10 min. from Times Square and 20 from the 9/11 museum. Many fabulous shops are also in this area. If you want to cook, there are the westsider's favorites, Fairway, Trader's Joe's and Zabars. Also, the apartment is just a 1/2 block away from Cafe Lalo where "You Got Mail" was filmed. If you would like to watch the sunset along the Hudson River, enjoy the view with a glass of wine at the Boat Basin in Riverside Park - just 3 blocks west. You can rent a bike at a neighborhood bike shop and ride along the Hudson from here. There are also, vegan and vegetarian restaurants just 1 and 2 blocks away that are very good!

Caitlin's apartment is a perfect site for easy getting around, great location, quiet, and pleasant. Museums, great restaurants, transportation at fingertips. Quiet, comfortable bed, artistically appointed with views of city.

Chic and prime location. Those are words that sum up in a nutshell this wonderful apartment. The space is a slice of heaven in a busy city and so tastefully decorated. Also, the bed is really comfortable, which is great because you can rise in the morning refreshed and explore all of the wonderful surroundings. You are steps from everything ranging from Central Park to various museums, to two premier book shops, grocery stores (including the must-visit Zabars), yoga studios and 'spin' biking classes, boutiques and big brand-shops. One of my favorite chocolatiers in the world, 2Beans, has an outpost here, which is a great place to get hot cocoa. In a city like New York that has a lot to offer, Caitlin's place is so well located for you to discover it all, and she's an amazing and inspirational host.

I am a native New Yorker and never tire of my beautiful city. I work in the arts as as actress so going to the theatre is my 2nd home. . Love cooking, knitting and boxing. I am an avid reader and there are many books in my home. Since New York has always been my home, I can tell you of the many off the beaten path sites in NYC. Explore the gem museum, fabulous thrift shops, specialty markets etc. I look forward to meeting people from other places and welcoming them into my home.

Be well and hope you come and visit this wonderful city.
