Bright, quiet Columbia/CCNY 1-bedroom with washer/dryer

Make yourself at home in this fully furnished apartment, steps from City College (West 136th Street and Amsterdam) and walking distance to Columbia University’s central campus, Columbia's new Manhattanville campus, Barnard and the Manhattan School of Music. A longer walk or short subway ride takes you to Columbia’s School of Medicine.

About my apartment: It is quiet, spacious and south-facing, so it gets plenty of light. The desk in the entryway cannot be seen from the kitchen/living room, making it easy to work there without distraction. The washer/dryer is in the unit, not in the basement (!), the balcony looks out over a landscaped courtyard, there is a built-in heater/air conditioner unit in each room, a walk-in closet, new queen-sized mattress, bamboo floors, and instant hot water. The living room has a queen-sized comfortable sleeper sofa. My neighbors are great, the building is safe. You have easy access to green space in nearby St. Nicholas Park, on the City College campus or along the Hudson river.

About the kitchen: Fully stocked with plenty of dishes and cookware and a dishwasher.

About the building: This elevator building was built in 2006. You’ll have access to the coutyard, exercise room and roof deck with a sweeping view of the Hudson river and midtown Manhattan.

Nearest subways: 1 train (137th street and Broadway), B and C trains (135th street and St. Nicholas Ave.) with easy transfers to 2/3, A/D. Plenty of buses nearby.

Everything is clean, neat and functional. Perfect for a single person or a couple. Includes sheets and towels. This is a smoke and pet free environment.

About Me
Hi, I’m Caitlin. I got my M.A. in Adult Learning and Leadership at Teachers College at Columbia University (walking distance from the apartment). In 2018, I edited a book of case studies, "Applied Improvisation: Leading, Collaborating and Creating Beyond the Theatre," published by Bloomsbury Press. The second in that series, "The Applied Improvisation Mindset" comes out in August, 2021. I design and facilitate experiential learning courses for business leaders, teams, and not-for-profits—all of it virtual at the moment. I bought my Harlem apartment in 2014. I got married a few years later and decamped to New Rochelle to live with my husband, making the apartment available to you! We think you’ll enjoy it as much as we have.
