This spacious apartment is located in a quiet, residential neighborhood close to the Columbia University medical campus in Northern Manhattan. There is room to sleep 2 persons in each of the 2 bedrooms and another 2 persons in the living room. The apartment has wireless internet access, cable television, an eat-in-kitchen and laundry facilities in the basement.
Close to many conveniences, it is across the street from restaurants, pharmacy, grocery markets, 3 short blocks from the nearest A subway stop, and 4 blocks from Fort Tryon Park and the Cloisters. The downtown bus stops across the street and uptown bus stops in front of the apartment. Central Park and Lincoln Center are about 20-25 minutes, easily and safely accessible at all hours.
Many young families as well as faculty and students from Columbia University, musicians and actors are among the residents of this neighborhood where Dr. Henry Kissinger grew up and Dr. Ruth currently resides. Cyclists frequent the neighborhood year round because of its proximity to Fort Tryon Park and the George Washington Bridge access to New Jersey. Lovely sunsets on the Hudson River can be viewed from Fort Tryon or two short blocks from the apartment. Several play areas are available for young children in the neighborhood.
I am a quiet anthropologist who does public health research and digital media assessment consulting. I enjoy cooking for friends and am an avid cyclist with the New York Cycle Club. My apartment is well located to take advantage of the many benefits of New York living--museums, Lincoln Center music, opera and theater, as well as easy reach to lower Manhattan and all that has to offer. While I enjoy travel and would welcome a swap, I am also open to a non-simultaneous swap and will happily share my New York with you.
