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.

We ended up having a hard time leaving the area. The townhouse is located right near Surrey’s. Central Park is just a block away with a park entrance right on 76ths street and Fifth Ave. You walk down the street, and you are in one of the most beautiful areas of the Central Park, surrounded by the great museums and the art galleries of the Upper East side. Julia gave us great tips for places to see, like the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum which was a hit with our early-teen kids. The apartment itself looks exactly like in the pictures, spacious, very classy and most of all extremely clean. There’s not one speck of dust anywhere in the apartment. The linens smell fresh and clean and the bed mattress is very comfortable. The kids slept in the living room sofas which were very comfortable as well. Besides cleaning the apartment (and doing an exceptional job at that), Anna, the housekeeper did the laundry for us. I still can’t get over her smiling face bringing our carefully folded laundry every day. We really appreciated that. We also had family and friends visit us for a few hours at a time in the apartment which turned out to be really enjoyable as we felt like they were visiting us at our home rather than at a hotel. Julia runs the place and she is an exceptional host. She’s direct and she’s approachable. Like other reviewers have mentioned, she will want to talk to you before the arrangements are finalized and at first this was a bit out of the ordinary, but by the time I met Julia, it was like she was an old friend. She will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable and welcomed at her place. I highly recommend the Fifth Avenue Apartments and would love to return!

The Appartment was emaculately decorated with old century charm. The elevator I absolutely adored -- it was an antique in and of itself made in the 1900's. Also, my wife suffers from chronic pain and one late night I called Julia and within 5 minutes she had delivered her personal heating pad for my wife to use during the remainder of our stay. Anything we needed was there--from transportation to amenities to housekeeping. The Appartment is located directly in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods on the upper east side. Central Park literally across the street. Each morning my wife and I would simply roll out of bed and step out the front door to local cafe for coffee, espresso and a light breakfast before enjoying world-class shopping and strolls through the park. We have been to New York before and have aways stayed in hotels. Never again! The flat, although small, was perfectly arranged for 2 and was very comfortable. We awoke each morning to light from the street level windows. No view in this Appartment, but we would sit in the common space to read a book or to enjoy the view. Adorable and comfortable is how I would summarize both the Appartment and Julia's hospitality. We can't wait to visit again.
