Spacious apartment with large living room, large bedroom, and lots of light in an elevator building. Multiple guests have said that this is the most peaceful and quiet corner of NYC, despite its location only two short blocks from the 1 subway line. The bedroom has a very comfortable queen bed; an additional twin mattress, and an inflatable queen mattress that can be set up in the living room. The apt has beautiful views of the Hudson River. Safe neighborhood 5 blocks from Columbia University.

The space
The large living room allows 3-4 guests to sleep comfortably in the apartment. The apartment is peaceful and extremely quiet and is only a 15-minute subway ride from midtown Manhattan (Times Square, Penn Station, etc.). Very conveniently located near the 1, A, B, C, and D subway lines. The apartment is also a short walk from the beautiful views by the Hudson River and Riverside Park. Nearby are also Morningside Park, Central Park, and Riverside Church. Perfect for visitors to Columbia University, Barnard College, or Teachers College, or for visitors to NYC who want peace and quiet and at the same time easy access to all local attractions.

During quarantine in 2020, I put together a well-equipped home gym with a squatting rack, bench press, and dumbbells that guests are very welcome to use.

There are tons of restaurants, coffeeshops, bars, and grocery stores nearby. Some of the best food and music in Manhattan are located only steps away.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots/pans/plates/silverware and there will be towels and sheets for guests to use.

Washer and dryer are available on the first floor of the building.

I will provide guests with all necessary supplies (detergent, hand soap, dish soap, paper towels, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, travel-size shampoo and conditioner, etc.) at no additional cost.
