Our lovely 2BR apartment is located in a full-service, 24 hour doorman/concierge, 32 story building on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. It is close to Central Park (6 minute walk), the Metropolitan Museum of Art (12 minute walk), the Guggenheim (5 minute walk), The National Design Museum (10 minute walk), world-class shopping and a major subway stop 2 blocks away that takes you anywhere in New York City. There are many, many dozens of cafes and restaurants located nearby offering many different options . . . just about anything you can imagine.
Our apartment has a master bedroom with a queen bed, a 2nd bedroom/office with a queen-sized futon (comfortably sleeps 2) and a large living room that opens into a dining room with seating up to 6. Unlike many (or most) Manhattan apartments, we have an eat-in kitchen with a large window, a great place to start your day with a bagel, coffee and newspapers (we subscribe to three).
We have a housekeeper who comes bi-weekly and is included in the apartment swap.
In addition, the apartment has a private 1000 square foot terrace attached with fun furniture and grill, an exciting rarity for New York City!
Our building, Claridge House, is a full-service building with 24 hour doorman, concierge service and a covered driveway in addition to a rooftop health club that includes a pool, outdoor decks and workout facilities. A modern, clean laundry room is located in the basement. Claridge House is extremely safe and friendly. www.claridgehouseny.com
