About the property

It is an open layout with a comfy couch, flat screen TV and a large dining table. 1 bedroom has a queen sized bed and the other twin sized bunk beds.

About Kate

The owners Mark and Kate grew up in the same town but never met until one fateful Thanksgiving on a flight home, and the rest was history. Both Mark and Kate live in the upper level of the home and rent out their garden level apartment. They like to rent to visitors and share their favorite things to do in the city.

Kate purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Kate chose Manhattan

This is a beautiful historic home on a street that hasn't changed since 1899. This tree-lined, well lit street is known for its friendly long-term residents who take care of the block. The home is historic and recently renovated for modern amenities. The owners plan on living here until they are old and grey!

What makes this apartment unique

The A,D, B and C trains at the end of the block and the 1 train three blocks away, is one of the best features of this location. You can get anywhere in the city very quickly.

First Class all the way!

  • 5 of 5

An amazing place to stay in Upper Manhattan! I felt very safe. The apartment is very spacious and clean. Close to the subway entrance in order to pick up the train to Lower Manhattan. It's located on a very historic street. Backyard is very cute as well!!

What a great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This 2 bedroom rental was fantastic. It was very clean and comfortable. Access to transportation, both subway and bus was just around the corner. The owners made themselves available if needed. The amenities, like washer and dryer, air conditioning, dishwasher, coffee pot made our stay in this apartment just like we were in our own place.

When we travel safety is always a concern, we felt extremely safe in the apartment and in the area. We found the people in this area to be very friendly and helpful as well.

Thanks for letting us share your home

great location, good for kids

  • 5 of 5

This property is in a very nice location. It was an easy walk to a subway station, grocery store, and church. Our family really appreciated the bunk beds since we have a son & a daughter. We enjoyed the kitchen for breakfast each day before exploring the city, and returning to a comfortable area for dinner each evening. Fun trip to a great city!

Everything it says it is.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 stayed here for a week and it was fantastic. The apartment was VERY clean when we arrived and had better bath towels than I do at home! Kitchen was well stocked with cooking oil, condiments, hot chocolate, even a coffee grinder. The street is very quiet, I don't think we ever heard any traffic. I really enjoyed being able to sit outside in the backyard with coffee in the morning. A real treat in New York! Right around the corner is a subway stop and a very well stocked grocery store. All in all, a lovely place to stay.

Nice, convenient location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment, located on a quiet residential street, was nice and provided a comfortable space for our party of three. It is very conveniently located near the subway station for the A,B,C, & D lines. The subway station, a full grocery store (Foodtown), a pharmacy, and a wine store are all within 200 yards of the townhouse.
