Our sunny apartment is in an elegant 1912 building one block west of Central Park on the southern edge of the upper west side of Manhattan. A large living room and bedroom (with queen bed) face south, with views of midtown and peeks of the Empire State and Chrysler Buildings. A fully-equipped eat-in kitchen (with marble counters, Viking stove, dishwasher) faces east and has full city views as does the large study which has a pull-out double bed-sized couch and a large bay with original casement windows. The bath, accessible both from the bedroom and the study, includes a soaking tub and a separate shower. The apartment is large (1200 sq. ft.) with high ceilings, original moldings, and glass doors. Turn-of-the-century mirrored sliding doors separate the living room and bedroom. The building, in which there are many gay residents, is very well maintained and has a live-in superintendent. A laundry is located on the first floor.

The apartment is ideal for reaching all parts of Manhattan. Two subway lines and six bus lines all stop within a block of the apartment. Greenwich Village, Soho, Chelsea and Midtown are a short subway ride away. Central and Riverside Parks are both a short walk, as are Lincoln Center, the American Museum of Natural History, and the New York Historical Society. Fifth Avenue, with The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, and the rest of “museum mile,” is a 15 minute walk through the park or accessible by crosstown bus.

The neighborhood is full of small restaurants, quirky shops, and movie theaters; one of NYC’s most famous food markets is four blocks from the apartment and a greenmarket/flea market is open each Sunday five blocks away.
