Up for grabs is a beautiful 1BR/1BA apartment in a luxury building on the Upper West Side.
ABOUT THE APARTMENT
This apartment has new wooden floors, new modern appliances (including a dishwasher, stove, and microwave), lots of closet space (2 very large closets and one medium sized closet), floor-to-ceiling windows in the living room and bedroom, and an amazing (albeit slightly obstructed) view of the Hudson River. It gets lots of light, and is at the end of the hall so is very quiet.
The bedroom is massive for New York standards, and currently fits a queen bed, large dresser, desk, and two nightstands. It also has two large closets (there is another large closet in the entryway). The living room is also quite large, and currently fits an L-shaped couch, two tables, a lounge chair, and a large TV/media center, with room to spare.
ABOUT THE BUILDING
Pet-friendly, no-smoking, elevator luxury building. The front desk is fantastic and super helpful, and they also help deliver packages, pick up dry-cleaning, etc. There is an absolutely stunning rooftop deck overlooking the city and the river with grills, lounge tables and chairs, and a private indoor lounge with TV, bathroom and kitchenette that is available for parties and get togethers. There is also a fully-equipped gym available for a small monthly charge ($25), as well as a children's play room and a bike room (available for $10 a month).
ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD
Smack in the middle of the Upper West Side. The building is on the same block as the express 1-2-3 trains, so you can get to Times Square in 10 minutes door-to-door. The apartment is also within walking distance to the B/C trains and cross-town buses. It is within walking distance to every restaurant, bar, grocery store, or retail store you could imagine, including Duane Reade, CVS, Gristedes, and Fairway Market within a 3 minute walk. The apartment is also within a 5 minute walk to Central Park and Riverside Park, and has direct access to the West Side Highway.
