“If you’re looking for an exchange with downtown NYC: stop searching, you’ve found the perfect spot! The apartment of Jakob and Debbie is on the Upper West side of Manhattan, near the Hudson. Central Park is only a 10 minute walk and the nearest metro a 5 minute walk. The apartment is in a doorman building in a quiet street (handy for a good nights rest in ‘the city that never sleeps’, no traffic-noises). It’s – for NYC-standards – roomy, well equipped and clean. A perfect place to sit down and relax after a day sightseeing! Before and during our exchange we had on-going communication with Debbie via whats-app, keeping us posted on their ‘adventures’ and vice versa. Debbie made us feel really at home in their apartment, leaving us a delicious NY-treat (van Leeuwen ice-cream) and lots of information about the city. Also the non-touristic tips, which are always our favorite. Besides that, they took very good care of our home and garden. We really recommend an exchange with this sweet family!”
Debbie's reviewsAs a host (2)
“Debbie & Jacob have a lovely apartment in a great part of Manhattan on the upper westside! Their home is close to local shops, delis, cinemas and several metro transit options just blocks away. There was plenty of room for us during our Xmas week in New York. We enjoyed the blend of prewar apartment details and the clean modern lifestyle decor of our hosts. The apartment was super tidy with great beds and all very well organized- laid out, providing all the needs for a small family including extra privacy if one wanted to watch tv or read in a separate cosy room away fr others. The apartment is very quiet, both the neighborhood and in between tenants as we heard virtually no noise during our whole time there. We loved our daily walks from their building, the polite doormen, seeing all the dogs & owners, the lovely neighborhood of brownstones transitioning fr quiet to busier retail shops for: coffee, breakfast and daily treats. Debbie was great with follow up communications and left everything perfect at our home. We would have no hesitations recommending them or their home. We would exchange again when they have the need for beachfront city skylines, all season mountain hiking vistas and Orcas whale/ island exploring! Thank you and Best regards, Shannon & Family”
Where is it?
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson Riverside Park, the Upper West Side (UWS) is one of the greenest parts of Manhattan. The Upper West Side is known for popular attractions like the Natural History Museum and Lincoln Center for performing arts. But relaxed bistros, boutique-like shops and a lively bar scene defy expectations in this sparkling and cozy uptown neighborhood.
Both Central Park and Riverside Park are only a short walk away and offer you great ways to exercise, relax, do the people watching and have lots of fun playgrounds to enjoy.
