Our spacious 1-bedroom apartment is in a very convenient and relatively quiet location for New York City, it is situated on the Upper East Side, on the corner of 87th Street and York Avenue on the 14th floor with a balcony that overlooks this street corner. The building is very well maintained, has 24-hour doorman as well as a gym on the top floor.
One of the major draws of this place are the huge picture windows in the living room and the bedroom with unobstructed views looking east, as well as providing an abundance of natural light and great afternoon sun on the balcony.
The apartment is ideal for two people, a couple, or even three people. The L shaped sofa in the living room is quite large and comfortable, providing an additional sleeping option for a third person if necessary. There are also two single inflatable mattresses stored in the closet.
The spacious bedroom includes a queen sized bed, flat screen tv, dressing area/desk, and love seat and chair for a sitting area. The one bathroom has a shower/tub, and the living room has the large L shaped sofa and a door opening out to the balcony with an outdoor table and four chairs. The dining area extends out from the living area, with a dining table and chairs for four, next to a galley kitchen equipped with dishwasher, microwave, full size refrigerator and oven/stove. There is a small foyer area with a coat closet. Apartment is stocked with all of the supplies you should need and there is a grocery store right on the corner downstairs.
There is a very large flat screen TV in the living room and the apartment is equipped with WiFi (we leave the password information for you)
Our small dog shares this apartment with us, but belongs to a doggie gym/daycare and is never home when we aren't, and would not be in the apartment during your stay.
This is a great location. Very safe family oriented neighborhood on the upper east side. Beautiful Carl Schurz park is located just at the end of the street, and the cross town bus picks up right on the corner, and will take you all the way cross Central Park to the Upper West Side, with many stops along the way. The 86th Street subway stop is just a few blocks away, which will get you to Grand Central terminal in about 10 to 15 minutes and runs all the way down to the Brooklyn Bridge, or up to Yankees Stadium, so you can access anything in the city this way very easily and at very little cost. There are also taxis outside the door at all times.
We are a couple in our 30's, both working professionals. We love walking our dog in the park on the weekends, going out for dinner, seeing new movies, and just being spontaneous around the city. I work in finance and my husband is in technical sales. I take ballet classes downtown and he loves to run in the park every day. I am from New Jersey and he is from San Francisco, CA and we love to travel, especially getting back to California once a year, and finding new places to visit.
