This place is incredible. When I got this place I wanted the best location, no neighbors on the same floor, lots of space, nice finishings and outdoor space. I wanted it all and I got it. Let's cover these one by one.
The location can't be beat. We are right next to Columbus Circle. That means you can get a quick train ride to anywhere in the city in less than 20 minutes. That said, you won't need a train to stay occupied as its right next to Central Park! You can walk to Times Square in less than 10 minutes. Its a Midtown address for you business travelers and shoppers. For the foodies, Hell's Kitchen is right there. For the museum lovers, we are right next to the Lincoln Center and the Upper West Side to reach the Natural History Museum and more.
No neighbors. This apartment is the entire floor of the building. There is no one else. Below it is an office so you don't have to worry about keeping anyone up at night and no one is there at all on the weekends.
The space is beautiful and huge. This is a completely renovated unit, completed in 2015. We had the whole floor gutted and rebuilt. All of the walls, floors, etc are brand new. It's a new place in an old building. Its the entire floor of the building. It's a true 3 bedroom. Beware of substitutes. Many in this city call their 2 beds, 3 beds. This is an actual 3 bedroom. All 3 bedrooms are very large by NYC standards. The living room is very spacious. Even the bathrooms are huge! It has around 1700 square feet or 188 square meters.
The finishings are all top of the line. Stainless steel appliances, beautiful name brand furniture (Pottery Barn and La-Z-Boy throughout), its all been thought of. Each room has a queen bed but there's also a sleeper sofa and two chairs which turn into beds which means there are 6 beds in all. The electronics are all as nice as you would expect in a place such as this. I stay here with my family during the summers so I spare no expense.
The outdoor space by NYC standards is huge. It has a patio! Do you know how rare that is? The patio has a dining table which seats 6.
This apartment is on the 3rd floor and is a walk-up. That means 2 flights of stairs. For you Europeans and Asians, that's the 2nd floor. The stairs aren't challenging but you need to know about them.
When I personally stay at other people's vacation rentals, I'm always disappointed by the quality of their supplies. You won't experience that with me. The kitchen supplies, the furniture, the towels, everything is top notch. We even have salon quality hair dryers!
Here are some other interesting features that stand out.
- One of the bathroom showers is also a steam room.
- We have recently spent Five Thousand Dollars on noise canceling windows. You will sleep like a baby.
- We have an Apple TV so you can stream NetFlix or use it to have presentations at your company meeting.
- The beds and the bedding are top of the line. You will be able to rest here.
