Studio with View of Riverside Park - Hudson River - 2 Blocks to Broadway

Enjoy the view of Riverside Park, the Hudson River and the George Washington Bridge in our well laid out Upper West Side studio. This is the perfect location for professional, educators, retirees, and grandparents visiting and working in NYC.

The neighbor is safe and quite; only 2 blocks from all of the restaurants, groceries, and shops on Broadway, 3 blocks from Amsterdam. You can get almost anywhere on the NYC bus and subway system – there are 3 bus lines within 1 block and the subway station is 2 blocks on Broadway.

Riverside Park is across street which offers great walking/jogging/biking paths, clay tennis courts, and a pool during the summer. Conveniently located near Columbia University.

The building has very friendly 24 hour doorman, elevators, nice clean laundry room. The layout of the studio is nice because there is a separate area for the living room and the bed. Our unit was recently converted to condos so everything is new.

Queen bed and fold out (full bed) couch provides separate sleeping and living space including 2 large closets, cable TV, high speed-wireless, domestic phone calls, all new appliances, linens, fully equipped top-of-the-line kitchen (sub-zero refrigerator, Miele stainless steel gas cook tops and ovens, dishwasher), thermostat controlled heat and air conditioning, and heated bathroom floor.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Leslie,

I filled in the review, but I have a constitutional dislike of using facebook, and refuse to sign up for it.

Here is the review:

On top: Wonderful apartment and view

Rating: 5 stars

Comments: I always enjoy staying in this apartment. It has all the appliances and room one can need. It has good air and a great view, and was spotless when I arrived. Also there is immediate service to any problems that arise both in-house and from the owners. For instance, when there was a problem with the TV screen, Leslie and her mother came the next day with a bigger new screen to replace the old one. I shall definitely wish to continue renting this apartment when I come to New York, as I have been very happy there.

Please feel free to post the review or copy it into your visitor's book.

All the best, and looking forward to renting from you in the future.

Amazing 5 weeks

  • 5 of 5
Our stay was fantastic in every way. Leslie is thoughtful and meticulous, and from the moment we entered, we felt at home. Every convenience is available, including a shopping cart so you don't have to haul your groceries back! We had detailed instructions on how everything operated, so from laundry to trash disposal, everything was very simple. The first thing we noticed was that the apartment was much larger than it seems from the photos. There are wonderful books on art, sights, walks and eateries in New York, which you can browse though as you put your feet up in the comfy reclining chair, or actively study for ideas of new ways to experience New York. The closet is huge, and we could put our massive bags out of sight as we settled in for our 5-week stay. A comfortable bed and couch, many surfaces for work and play, and plentifully stocked with linen, towels, soap, detergents etc., this was our first experience with renting, and has made us fans of the site and of Leslie. She was prompt, courteous and helpful at all times, and was genuinely committed to our having a great time in the apartment and in New York. I will run out of words to praise the apartment and Leslie, and still not say how great it was! The location is ideal - 2 blocks from a subway station for express and local trains, steps away from the noise and hubbub of Broadway, in a calm, peaceful, residential oasis. The river breeze never let us feel the true extent of New York's heat or humidity, and the view was a joy at all times. Thoughtful touches like metro maps, opera guides, and torches added to our comfort. Leslie, I will be back to stay at your apartment in New York (and any other properties you might have anywhere else) again and again and again! I have already recommended this property to a whole bunch of people, and will continue to do so. A heartfelt thanks, Leslie, for a wonderful apartment and an amazing experience.

Quite Retreat

  • 5 of 5
I spent a happy month in this small but very well equipped and very comfortable studio. It proved to a very quiet location but only a couple of blocks from all amenities including a major subway station and a crosstown and downtown bus. The landlords were hospitable and helpful. The wifi and airconditioning proved to be a real boon. I could heartily recommend this vacation rental for one person or a couple.

Better than advertised

  • 5 of 5
My friend and I loved the apartment. The view was great and it was very comfortable. You could easily eat dinner in - the cooking area, though small, was adequate for a studio. We chose instead to eat at the many inexpensive restaurants along Broadway. With an express and local subway stop within a three minute walk, the apartment is in excellent field position for anyone who wants to tour the city. We had to leave early because of a medical problem, but I hope to be able to rent the apartment again in the future.

Great Home away from Home

  • 5 of 5
We felt right at home the minute we walked through the door of this comfortable apartment partly because the Internet photos had captured all areas of the apartment and did so accurately. The location of the apartment building is safe and fantastic for public transportation and groceries and restaurants. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils and dinnerware. My husband especially liked the shower! Thanks to our attentive owners we would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to friends and family.

Thank you Leslie & Jeff for providing a cosy retreat for our stay in NYC. All the homely comforts are provided in this excellently located studio (including a wonderfully comfortable bed to collapse in after a busy day soaking up such a fabulous city). Only a couple of minutes to 96th Street subway and the wonderful selection of nearby eateries and shops. Great neighbourhood. We loved our walks in Riverside Park, in addition to being able to walk through Central Park to highlights such as The Met & Guggenheim. We appreciated your helpful and prompt responses to our queries. All in all a fantastic stay, if only Sydney and NYC were a little closer!! Thanks so much and we hope to be back again soon. What wonderful memories!!
