The space

Large one bedroom in amazing location on the upper west side. Our apartment is on a high floor of an elegant renovated luxury pre-war building with 24-hour doorman. The apartment has a lot of light, space to move around, perfectly clean nice hardwood floors and sky-high ceilings. Walk to Riverside Park, fabulous shopping, dining, and one short block to the 1 Train at 86th Street.
Really great location - close to the subway (B,C,1 and the 2 & 3 express trains). Our home is about 10 mins away from Times Square and very easy to access the rest of the city via subway. Kitchen is stocked with appliances and the apt is across the street from a grocery store, 24 hour restaurant, great shops and places to eat. Minutes away from Lincoln Center, Central Park and many other NYC attractions.

Apartment can be rented for up to 4 people. There is a Queen Size bed in the bedroom and couch in the living room. We do have a large air mattress, please inquire if you are interested. There are air conditioning units in both the living room and bedroom.

This apartment has just been freshly painted and cleaned. I expect guests to be respectful of the neighbors as this is a quiet building in a nice neighborhood. Absolutely no parties.

Other features include:
- Fully equipped kitchen
- Dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, stove & oven
- Keurig coffee maker stocked with k-cups, sugar, cream, etc for guest use
- Living/dining room with HD cable TV
- High-speed wireless internet

Guest access

Guests will have access to all areas of our apartment excluding our personal closet. Because this apartment is where we live full time we do have many personal items throughout the space and request that the utmost respect be paid to our belongings.

Interaction with guests

I prefer to communicate via Airbnb messaging or text messaging, as we are traveling when we rent out our place. Thanks!

The neighbourhood

The Upper West Side is beautiful, quintessential New York! Brownstones and classic buildings, tree-lined streets that lead straight to Riverside Park or Central Park, bike lanes around town and along the Hudson River, and amazingly convenient subway and bus service to take you anywhere fast. If you saw "You've Got Mail," these are the exact spots where the late great (former Upper West Sider) Nora Ephron chose to film. Everything is a short walk away - movie theater (voted best in NYC!), restaurants, shopping, coffee, the best bagels in the world!

You'll be just steps from Riverside Park - where you can walk, bike, play tennis, admire the gardens, picnic along the Hudson River, or head east 5 minutes to Central Park, the Museum of Natural History or south to Lincoln Center.

Getting around

Spectacular location for public transit! We are located conveniently 1 block from the 1 train, and a short walk to 3 other lines. Between them you are able to get almost anywhere in the city within minutes! If public transit isn't your thing - there is always a cab just a few steps away from the front door.

Other things to note

We also have a deluxe double-height queen air mattress that can accommodate 2 people in the living room. Please request when booking and we will have this ready for you, along with extra pillows, sheets and blankets.

We typically require a 3 night minimum stay during the holidays.

Katie and Matt's place is a fantastic and authentic taste of New York. It was wonderful to stay in this beautiful neighbourhood on the upper west side. Visiting for 4 days, most of our time was spent in lower Manhattan but being here was the perfect opportunity to explore uptown, walking down through central park or taking a cab was an excellent way to see the city. Lovely to retreat back here and escape from the madness too (going over new year). The apartment is comfortable, clean and has everything you need. Katie's recommendations were spot on and really helpful for the local area. Some real gems! We had an amazing stay here, hope you do too.

If you can stay at Katie's, DO! This apartment is charming, clean, and convenient to Central Park and the subway. The neighborhood is quiet (for NYC) and Katie gives perfect suggestions for places to eat and shop in the area. The apartment is even nicer than the photos posted. You have your own doorman who runs the elevator 24 hours a day! We had a great get away and loved being at Katie's!!

What a perfect weekend! Katie's place was very cozy, clean and inviting. She went out of her way to make sure we were knowledgable in even the little things, like how to turn on the TV / Cable. She was very responsive to any question we had via texting. Her guide book to the Upper West Side led us to amazing local resturants, which made us almost feel like we actually lived here! It was a perfect first experience to Airbnb and we couldn't speak more highly to Katie and Matt for their efforts to make our stay wonderful. Thanks guys! Cheers!

Katie and Matt's place is awesome! I definitely recommend staying here while visiting NYC, especially if you are staying in the Upper West Side. The location was perfect for us - a quiet neighborhood that is still convenient to the park and restaurants. The place itself has a lot of light and is really nicely decorated in a way that feels very warm and inviting. Getting the key was easy, when we arrived the place was spotless, and Katie was super quick and responsive with emails / messages. Highly recommended!!

We had a great weekend in NYC and Katie made us feel very welcome. The apartment is lovely and light, and just as described, and the building is so charming. Plus the location can't be beat. Katie was a great host, and provided recommendations for restaurants and shopping. She made visiting the city easy. I recommend this spot, and would stay here again. Thanks Katie!
