The best view! Looking over to the Ansonia, one of many historic buildings visible from our rooftop. You can also see the famous Dakota at the end of the block, and Central Park just beyond that!

About this listing

Amazing W. 72nd St. Penthouse! Spectacular views from four sides!! View Central Park and Strawberry Fields to the East and the Hudson River and New Jersey to the West. Not too mention the incredible 3BR apartment full of character and charm! We look forward to hosting you

The space

Upper West Side Penthouse with a private rooftop overlooking the entire city! 1- Bedroom avail in fabulous 3-bedroom penthouse apartment.

Views from Central Park to the Hudson River!

One newly renovated bedroom with a Queen size bed in a three bedroom Penthouse apartment with tons of light and outdoor space! The pictures of the room are dated, I'm uploading more this week. The room was just outfitted with brand new bedding, sheets, curtains & paint... new everything.

There are 2 roommates both in their early 30s, but we're mostly gone. We are super chill, check out our reviews. I'll respond quickly to anything to make your stay better!

Half a block to the 1,2,3 subway trains or three blocks to the B,C train. Steps from Riverside Park and the Hudson River and three blocks from Central Park! Views of it all from the extensive outdoor rooftop! Close to some of the best restaurants New York City has to offer, not to mention the great bar/pub scene. The apartment is about eight blocks South of the Natural History Museum and North of Lincoln Center.

1,2,3 train less than one block away. One express stop from Time Square!

Guest access

Guests typically book one room of the three and will be treated just like a member of the penthouse! We share a large beautiful bathroom with excellent water pressure as well as a full kitchen. Of course, the highlight is our HUGE wrap-around roof deck! Access is just through the French doors in the living room. You will feel right at home in our cushy couches surrounded by plant life and art work.

Interaction with guests

I will be available almost anytime throughout your stay whether it be by calling, texting, or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN).

We've made some great friends over Air B&B, most of which we still keep in touch with.

Other things to note

There are a few celebrities who live in our building so you could find yourself in the elevator with a star! The apartment itself has a ton of cool history that the roommates or myself would be happy to tell you about as well.

We have two grills outside and great supermarkets very nearby. Feel free to grab some fresh corn and your favorite grillables and invite your New York friends over for a BBQ! The grill on the right side is reserved for vegetables and non-meat products, thank you!

There is a great place to rent bicycles right across the street. Grab a helmet and you can be riding along the Hudson River or through Central Park, always a beautiful ride! You can even ask a roommate to join you when they are home, they have bikes and love to ride!

The Beacon Theatre is two blocks away and hosts many exciting and world renowned shows by various artists, bands, and musicians. It's a small old original theater, very cool! I've seen Stevie Wonder there in fact! Terminal 5 is another excellent music venue for large acts and is less than one mile from the apt. It is a very fun venue with a roof deck above the stage and crowd. In fact, you can take a bus or taxi there in about 5 minutes or walk in 20.

Of course, there are like a million other things to do nearby too :)

Enjoy and clean up after yourself. It is a clean and tidy apartment and needs to stay that way. No smoking inside and no guests after 2am. Smoking is ok on the Terrace. Noise level should respect the other roommates as well as the surrounding buildings since sound travels very well at night. No more than two people in my bed. All personal items are to be left as they are, where they are. Thank you!

Chris was out of town while I stayed here, but his roommate Sam was more than welcoming. The patio has incredible views and was great to hang out on, the location was perfect for getting anywhere in the city fast, and living was great for when we just needed to relax and get away from all the noise of the city. I will definitely stay here again in the future.

Great for location. Able to walk to multiple places and relatively close to: Times Square, Central Park, Levain Bakery (where you'all find the BEST cookies ever!), metro nearby! The bed was very comfortable. Owner very accommodating and that was very important to us given that our flight arrived close to midnight.

Chris and his roommates were all really nice and made us feel welcome. The location is great and the rooftop was the perfect place to begin and end the day. We tried to walk as much as possible and there are a lot of food and bar options within walking distance but the subway is also very convenient.

Chris saved our bacon at the last minute! Stranded in New York having left a not so pleasant site elsewhere in the city, Chris promptly replied to our cry for help; gave us a deal for us to accept the room before he could turn the place over and made the whole thing work. His kind roommates did the rest with their amazing rooftop views and hospitality and all was right. If you're looking to have a great scene in an ideal location you can't beat it.

Chris User Profile

Hello,

Welcome to my profile. My name is Chris and I have been lucky enough to live in this unreal and beautiful Penthouse for over 10 years now! I grew up nearby and now spend most of my time in Phoenix launching my business and looking forward to bringing it all back to New York City. My free time is usually spent with my dogs, Winnie and Ginger or playing golf or music. Laid back and easy-going while always staying on the ball. No flakiness here, I give what I hope to get. I am 36 years young and try to always live life to the fullest. I love my apartment so much and now Airbnb has given me a way to share my amazing space with you!
