This is an extremely comfortable and quiet apartment in a very convenient location. There is everything you need; the kitchen is very small but clearly belongs to people who cook well and with discernment. The doormen are very friendly and helpful. All up, a place we are keen to stay in again. Excellent Pavla Miller 1/24/2020 3:38:00 PM
I stayed at Professor B’s apartment last summer for six weeks and it was definitely the best apartment I have ever lived in!

Located on a quiet street on UES, you will be steps away from Central Park, several museums including Guggenheim, WholeFoods, Best Buy and many restaurants and shops nearby. 86th Street subway station is only 3 minutes away and in 10 minutes you can get to bustling Midtown East.

The apartment is in an elegant prewar building with friendly doormen. The interior of the apartment is simply stunning - Professor B and his wife have tastefully decorated their apartment with furniture and art pieces from all around the world. They also have a fascinating collection of books.

The apartment is immaculately clean and is equipped with all essentials you will need. Professor B and his wife were extremely kind to me. They also provided me with clear and helpful instructions on how to navigate different things in the apartment (such as the multi-media system) and recommendations for the area.

Thank you Professor B for allowing me to stay at your home. To all other sabbatical home users, stop searching, stay at this apartment and you will have the best time in NYC!

This apartment is in a great location - walking distance to the Met, Central Park and many other museums. The neighborhood is lively and youthful, not the stuffy "Upper East Side" image. There are great small markets and supermarkets, diverse ethnic restaurants and the kind of shops you need, rather than boutiques. The apartment is very comfortable and easy to settle in to. It has everything you might need, neatly stored, yet easy to find. The building is pre-war - dignified and attractive- and the staff is pleasant and helpful. For us it all was perfect.
