About this listing
Our spacious and quiet 2BR/1BA apartment is located near the A train (20 min. to midtown Manhattan), and walking distance from Fort Tryon Park/The Cloisters. Full size bed in bedroom, and full size futon. Pet friendly.
Our lovely home boasts 950 sq ft, a very spacious apartment for NYC. It can sleep up to four (two in the master bedroom, two on the futon). There are two AC's, and the apartment in general stays very cool. There is one bathroom, and a separate kitchen with a fold out island for extra counter space. There is a flat screen TV, dining table, and lots of storage. The second "bedroom" is used as a teaching studio for the two musicians who live in. You will also see a six foot baby grand, and many music books. Pets are welcome, as long as they are cleaned up after.
Wifi, cable TV and AC are all free to be used, although additional payment may apply. We very much prefer for guests not to touch the piano and other instruments in the music room.
Interaction with guests
We will be present to meet the guest, and hand over keys. Depending on the length of the guest's stay, it will be either ourselves, or a third party.
If you are looking for the Manhattan Experience, but find the city a little too noisy and bustling, this is your neighborhood! Even though you are in Manhattan, this neighborhood is quiet, safe, and family friendly. Overlooking the Hudson River, you will find some really beautiful views of the George Washington Bridge, and the Palisades.
You are located near two supermarkets, a Chase Bank, a pharmacy, and multiple restaurants right outside your door. There is also a very excellent wine shop right up the street called Vines on Pine. A short walk south to 181st Street will take you to a Starbucks, and a wonderful Italian restaurant called Saggio.
Heading north, you will find Fort Tryon Park, and the Cloisters Museum, a must-see collection of medieval art.
Hudson Heights is a very convenient area with three parking garages and alternate side parking, if you are driving. The closest trains are the A and 1 trains, which means getting to midtown in about 20 min. There is also the M4 and M98 express that stops outside. We are also walking distance from the George Washington Bridge and the GWB bus terminal.
Other things to note
We are on a fifth floor walkup.
