Please read the complete description.

1 FLOOR OF A BROWNSTONE WITH GARDEN, 1 ½ BLOCKS FROM CENTRAL PARK

A friend fondly refers to my apartment as The Grotto because it is a peaceful space surrounded by whitewashed stone. It is decorated with original art and mid century modern furnishings that have a comfortable, lived in look.

LOCATION:

Walking distance (20 minutes) from many of the world's most famous museums: Museum of Natural History, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Guggenheim and The Children's Museum of Manhattan. Every cuisine is just steps from the door.

Manhattan - Upper West Side in the 90's.
1-½ blocks from Central Park.
2 subway stops from Times Square.
One block from the 1, 2, and 3 subway lines.
Three blocks from the B and C subway lines.

THE SECRET GARDEN:

After a long day of sightseeing, the garden will provide a quiet time to read a book or enjoy a cocktail.

THE DIGS:

The apartment comprises two floors of a brownstone:

I (Lori) am renting because I travel frequently. You would be taking my space at the basement level while I am away.

PRIVATE SPACE (Your space at basement level):

Large private living room (20' x 15') with 15' ceilings
Large picture window (8' x 8') - the picture window gives you a view of an ornamental cherry tree.
Private bedroom (10' x 10') with queen size bed
Private bathroom with a large bathtub (12' x 10')
Private walk through closet (20' x 8')
2 – 7' couches that can be used as beds
1 – chaise that can be converted into a bed
Wi-Fi
Cable with HBO

Note: The bedroom and bathroom have low ceilings (Approximately 6 feet 3 inches). If you are taller than 6 feet, you might need to duck as you enter the bathroom and over the bed.

John is at garden level. He has his own private bedroom, living space and bathroom separate from where you would stay. You will share the entrance and kitchen.

John is an extremely considerate 50-year old man who works in finance (8:00 AM - 6:00 PM on weekdays and is generally gone on the weekends).

You don't see anyone in the apartment unless you are in the kitchen and John happens to be grabbing something from the refrigerator (neither of us cook very much).

SHARED SPACE:

Kitchen
Garden - accessed through John's space and is shared with the owner
Entrance
Dishwasher

ORIGINAL ART:

Diana Lehr
Christina Bothwell
Francesco Stella
Nancy Sherman

PET:
I recently inherited a Norwegian Forest cat named Banksy. He is a shy boy who charms women but prefers to hang around men.

PARKING:

Alternate side parking on the street.

WHEN YOU ARRIVE:

Note: If you have a late flight it will be difficult for me to show you around the apartment and neighborhood before I leave. Please try to book your arrival in New York to be earlier than 2:00 PM if possible.

I would love to introduce the neighborhood to you: stores, restaurants, post office, and pharmacy. I (Lori) will leave after you are comfortable. The apartment is semi-private. You will barely see John.

I would appreciate if you did not make a lot of noise between 11:00 PM - 7:00 AM while John is sleeping.

If John is home, please knock before going through his space to go to the garden.

I have original art work and would appreciate not placing bags next to the paintings.
