Why Juliana Kim chose Manhattan

Fully furnished contemporary 1 bedroom apartment sleeps 4: full-size bed in the bedroom with a queen-size pull-out sofa bed in the living room. This fantastic apartment is located on the fifth (5th) floor of charming town house. Please note that there is no elevator in this building, but the original staircase is wide, so the four flights that you need to go up to reach the apartment are not too difficult. Bright and airy living room features windows with a partial view of Riverside Park. An authentic original brick wall from the 1800's provides a warm contrast to this otherwise very modern apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

Nearby on Broadway, just 2 blocks away from the apartment, there are stores to accommodate your every need; groceries and prepared foods from Fairway Market, Citarella, and the well known Zabar's, pharmacies, banks, liquor stores, Starbucks, unique clothing and gift boutiques, Bed Bath and Beyond and many others. The location is convenient to shopping at renowned Madison Avenue, Fifth Avenue, department stores such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman and Barneys, cultural sites like the famous Fifth Avenue 'museum mile' with the Metropolitan Museum and Guggenheim and other tourist attractions such as Rockefeller Center, MoMa Modern Art Museum, Times Square and the Broadway Theater district. Most of these places are within walking distance (about 15-30 minutes depending) and public transportation, local buses and subways, are all located nearby.

Our apartment is located just a few minutes walk from the subway station at 72nd Street and Broadway which has both express and local trains. You can easily connect to any of the other subway lines. There are buses running uptown and downtown on Broadway and Riverside Drive, as well as a cross-town buses at 79th street and 65th street (near Lincoln Center) which will easily take you over to the east side.

I'd give it 2.5 stars

  • 2 of 5

The apartment itself is fine--quite roomy, by NYC standards, with some nice features, including marble floor/counter and stainless steel appliances in the kitchenette. If you were renting this place on a 12-month lease, you could fix it up and make it all cute and homey and it would be a nice place to live (again, by NYC standards). The way it's set up now, as a furnished monthly rental, is pretty basic. The bed wasn't particularly comfortable (although I've definitely slept on worse), and the couch was so uncomfortable to sit on that I didn't use it at all (in fairness, most sleeper sofas aren't super comfy).

I didn't mind staying in a 4th-floor walkup. It's New York, after all. But I did mind the fact that the apartment hadn't been properly cleaned before I checked in. In particular, there was a bad smell coming from the fridge. It was obvious that the cleaning person had just thrown out some rotten food without bothering to actually clean the fridge. The smell was so annoying that I bought some cleaning supplies at Duane Reade and spent an hour cleaning the fridge and freezer myself, which immediately got rid of the smell. The bathroom was *mostly* clean. The bedroom furniture--headboard and night table--were covered with a thick layer of dust. The bed had clean sheets, but the duvet cover was filthy, so I took it down to the laundry room in the basement and washed it.

All together I'd say I spent two hours cleaning at the beginning of my visit just to make the place livable. When I wrote to the landlady to complain, she apologized and offered to send her colleague over to look at the apartment, which wouldn't have been helpful at that point. She completely ignored my suggestion that she refund a portion of the cleaning fee. I had expected her to write back and say, "Of course, we will refund the full cleaning fee immediately." In a business where success largely hinges on customer reviews, I'm frankly shocked that anyone would be so passive and complacent about a legitimate customer concern.

If you're not overly picky, you might have a good experience staying in this apartment, or another apartment in the building. But don't assume the place will be clean when you get there.
