Central Park is somewhere that many visitors like to spend some time. At 843 acres Central Park is large and is a lovely place to enjoy a walk along the extensive walking trails, a cycle or a skate, or just sit and admire the lakes and ponds, or better yet go ice skating on them in the winter!

Other activities include boulder climbing, going for a carriage horse ride, or during the summer watch one of the concerts that take place here frequently or enjoy performances of the New York Shakespeare Festival.

For something different take the Roosevelt Island Tramway. This is a cable car that runs from the Upper East Side across the river to Roosevelt Island. Get off at Roosevelt Island where you can board the Red Bus which, for a minimal fare, transports passengers around the island.

A friend of mine who had previously stayed here recommended this townhouse. It look perfect, exactly what I was looking for. From my initial contact to departure, Julia was wonderful; very responsive and professional. She assisted with making several special accommodation and was easy to work with. My boss and her family have very particular dietary preferences; I gave Julia an extensive and specific grocery list of items for their stay. No problem, Julia took care of that and made sure the kitchen was stocked with the requested items prior to their arrival. Since my boss and her family were getting in late, Julia made sure the beds were all turned down and ready for the children to slide right into. My boss and her family were greeted upon arrival by a live-in staff member even though it was 2 AM. The following morning Julia made sure to personally greet my boss and her family, and made herself personally available if needed. My boss was very pleased with the townhouse. The townhouse was everything she envisioned; beautifully and tastefully decorated turn of the 19th century house, with high ceilings. There also was a very pretty courtyard, nice and spacious terrace. She was quite impressed and happy with my selection. Julia's pre-arrival packet was so thorough and helpful. She really has thought of everything. If you want a worry-free, safe, quite, centrally located, beautiful place to stay, look no further. This townhouse will not disappoint.

Location was Ok and now with the opening of Q train it's great. For 4 people it was a little tinny but for 2-3 people I think is great. Overall, it was a very good experience and our host was really organized.

My husband and I have stayed in the Grand White Loft on multiple occasions with our two teenage children and cannot say enough wonderful things about Julia and her property! The apartment is beautiful and kept immaculately clean. The beds, pillows and linens are as comfortable as any 5 star hotel. There are delicious casual as well as Michelin star restaurants and world class shopping within walking distance from the apartment. We enjoy being so close to Central Park (for a run or a casual stroll). Julia will treat you like family! She is a wonderful hostess and is always available to help with restaurant recommendations, directions to grocery stores, bakeries, or pharmacies, or to accommodate you in every way. We will be back soon!
