The Most Beautiful NYC Apartment - one block from Metropolitan Museum

Welcome to Manhattan! This is a rare, Old World charming penthouse apartment in NYC on the Upper East Side between Park Avenue and Lexington, one block from Central Park and all the museums. It is rare. Has location, charm, light, space, 6 subway just in front of the building. You won't find something like this easily - I have rented in NYC and it took me ages to find this unique apartment. It's furnished with charm in French country fashion. Two large, light filled bedrooms, large living room/dining room with marble dining table, a roomy office which could be used as a third bedroom, a wood burning fireplace, a terrace (big enough to host dinner parties for 10) a complete kitchen with window, spacious bathroom. Laundry room in building, 10th floor with elevator and live-in Super. We are on the Upper East Side between Lexington and Park Avenue, two blocks from the Metropolitan Museum; one block from Central Park; close to the Frick Museum; in front of 77th Street (Line 6) subway; right on all the popular Crosstown and Downtown and Uptown Buses. Great restaurants - and the famous Butterfield's Market is next door as is San Ambroues for coffee and croissants... and Central Park is your backyard. A rare place. Available At Christmas and school holidays and from July 1st to September 1st. I also have a sofa bed which sleeps 1-2 and many air mattresses for kids or guests. No animals, no smokers. Serious people only... I can rent by the week if I don't rent the place monthly.

About Me
JANINE DI GIOVANNI Janine di Giovanni is the Middle East editor of Newsweek and a recent Pakis Scholar at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy, where she focused on Track 2 Diplomacy, International Law and International Security. In 2016, she was awarded the Courage in Journalism Award for her distinguished work in war zones over the past 25 years, most recently, Syria. Currently working in Syria and Iraq, she is focusing on ISIS and other insurgency groups in the Middle East, but her overall thesis is on talking to non-state actors to reduce conflict and providing political representation post-war to minorities. Her most recent book, “The Morning They Came for Us: Dispatches from Syria” has been called “searing and necessary” by the New York Times and has so far won three awards a well as being named one of the best human rights books in 2016. It has been translated into 18 languages so far, and has won three awards in 2016. A skilled communicator and strategist, she is a non-resident International Security Fellow at the New America Foundation and an Associate Fellow at The Geneva Centre for Security Policy, where she moderates their geopolitical debate series.

Her TED talk on conflict resolution, filmed at the USIP, has reached more than 900,000 viewers. She is a former adviser on the Syria conflict to the UNHCR, and has advised senior officials on policy for the EU, NATO and others. She was a delegate to William Hague’s conference on addressing sexual violence during conflict and has published extensively on the subject. As a journalist, she has reported war, conflict and its aftermath for more than 25 years in the Middle East, the Balkans and Africa. She has won nine awards and published seven books (the most recent, “The Morning They Came for Us: Dispatches from Syria”) and has been the subject of two long-format documentaries, including 7 Days in Syria. Di Giovanni is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations. She lives in Paris and holds American, British and French nationalities.
