Very comfortable alcove space in a luxurious pre-war building off Park Avenue, immaculately clean and filled with beautiful antiques. Entire apartment overlooks gardens and is extremely quiet. Murray Hill Historical District location is divine! HIGHLY CENTRAL LOCATION within walking distance of the most popular destinations of Manhattan -- Grand Central Station, The Empire State Building, The Flatiron Building, Bryant Park, Central Park, Fifth Avenue, Gramercy Park, Union Square, and Soho.

The space

IDEAL CENTRAL LOCATION!! This is a VERY comfortable alcove room for 1 person in a VERY LUXURIOUS, spacious, GORGEOUS apartment, STEPS FROM EMPIRE STATE BUILDING, FLATIRON DISTRICT, 5th AVENUE, BRYANT PARK, UNION SQUARE, THE THEATER DISTRICT, GRAND CENTRAL STATION and all transportation going in every direction (4,5,6 and N,R, F, V, B, D Subway lines; and numerous bus lines running up Madison Avenue 1 block away and down 5th Avenue 2 blocks away.) As well as wonderful shopping, restaurants and unique food markets. (Including the Union Square farmer’ market and the fabulous Grand Central Market at Grand Central Station with its tantalizing array of specialty foods.) This is seriously the perfect launching point from which to get to any other neighborhood in Manhattan as it is dead center of the island of Manhattan -- both longitudinally as well as laterally. From here, you could walk almost anywhere. This aspect of the apartment, combined with the elegance and beauty of the Park Avenue neighborhood, make it a real treasure! Apartment is in a fully restored pre-war building off exclusive Park Avenue, immaculately clean and filled with beautiful antiques. Entire apartment overlooks gardens and is extremely quiet. It has a large layout with high ceilings, over-sized windows facing south with southern exposure offering good light, gorgeous wood floors, central heat and air conditioning, internet access, cable television, laundry on site, a huge living room, a pristine clean bathroom, and a large kitchen fully stocked with every dish, utensil, glass, pot, pan, and appliance you could possibly need. Beautiful, fine 100% cotton bed linens from France and Italy and fresh towels provided. This is TRULY “not your average apartment” but comparable to a 5-star hotel in so many ways – but at a fraction of the price. (READ REVIEWS from other guests who confirm that!) All my friends envy this apartment and wish it was their own; and all my guests love it here. I keep it very tidy and clean. My home is my castle. And it could be yours too . . .

Guest access

Aside from their own sleeping quarters, guests can absolutely use the kitchen, bathroom, and living room.

Interaction with guests

I will absolutely be available to offer help during your stay as I live here and will be your host! Additionally, I can offer you a document I made listing endless suggested restaurants, shops, and sights with detailed descriptions of the types of venues they are, what they sell, the prices, and addresses. Though I would recommend, of course, that my guests who don't know NYC do a little research of their own either by tour guide books or online and have some idea of their own agenda and places they personally chose to visit as opposed to relying solely on me to figure out every place and address they might want to go. Because sometimes I am not here or don't always have the time to give protracted turn by turn directions to things one can easily find out on their own -- and the internet is a wonderful thing that answers many questions! (In other words, I like my guests to be a LITTLE resourceful and self-reliant by using the web to find out answers to common questions -- and not completely depend on me to play Information Desk Clerk for things which can easily be researched online. (This doesn't happen often, but on rare occasion I have had guests who were extremely needy -- or maybe just lazy -- interrupting me on the phone or as I was trying to rush out the door with endless questions that they could easily have found the answer to themselves. (I am talking about an "excessive" amount of questions, by the way. Or really dumb questions that I couldn’t possibly know the answer to. So please do not read this and in any way be afraid to talk to me or ask me anything! I just don't want to play "Mommy" to my guests.)

Other things to note

In case you have never been to NYC and have any fears about safety, this is an EXTREMELY SAFE neighborhood and you would have nothing to fear here! I walk around here at all hours of the night.

H's apartment is a lovely one in a beautiful and distinguished older building, perfectly maintained. The location is central in every way and in an attractive, quiet neighborhood just a few feet off Park Avenue. H is a welcoming, accommodating, and personable host. The apartment is up two flights of an elegant staircase. You have the run of the place and can use the kitchen if you want to. I found the bed extremely comfortable. And in a city with outrageously expensive hotels, it is a real bargain. I was delighted!

Staying at H’s house was GREAT!  A beautiful apartment in a beautiful building in a beautiful neighborhood close to everything, and I spent a month there with H who was so nice to me and we became very good friends after so many days together. Her apartment is clean and luxurious and centrally located. The bed is really comfortable and the sheets are soft cotton and fresh with clean towels and use of a modern kitchen and very nice bath room. And she was very nice to me from the first day I arrived and helped me with anything and everything I needed. DEFINITELY recommend this apartment .

While the host was very kind and the apartment and building very lovely, I hope that future guests will read and absorb the word "alcove" more carefully. THIS IS NOT A PRIVATE ROOM. "Alcove" implies at least some privacy. I would describe the location of the single bed as a hallway. It was between the host's bedroom and the shared bathroom on one side and the kitchen and living room on the other. I arrived back after my evening out around 10:30 and found the host asleep on the couch with the TV on loud. I changed in the bathroom and tried not to wake her up while preparing for bed, hoping that she would go to her bedroom soon and allow me some privacy. However, she seems to suffer from some kind of insomnia, and was in the living room or walking past my bed to the bathroom all night. I was woken up numerous times. I don't think she went to her bedroom all night. I had no privacy and felt I was sleeping in public. I left the next morning extremely tired, having only managed 4 hours of sleep. Due to the fact that the host shared the main living area with me all night, I would classify this listing under "shared space," not "private room." No amount of beautiful antiques can make up for a good night's sleep.
