Peaceful sabbatical oasis in New York

My small, charming sun-filled studio apartment is perfect for your one or two semester sabbatical in New York City. The apartment overlooks private gardens on a quiet street in the midst of a lively restaurant-rich Murray Hill neighborhood in Manhattan. It is within easy walking distance the City University Graduate Center, New York’s famous main library branch on 42nd Street, and NYU’s Langone Medical Center. It is also close to subway and public bus lines, and to supermarkets and specialty food shops.

The apartment is fully furnished and user friendly. The kitchen is small but amply equipped. There is a double Murphy bed, which pulls down from a wall cabinet but can remain open with room to spare. The apartment is on the top floor of a lovely pre-war walk up and has air-conditioning, good reading lights for study, a comfortable sofa, and a couple of family antiques. There is ample closet, dresser and book-shelf space. This is a very quiet environment, good for study. Utilities and Wi-Fii Internet access are included.

Referring to listing #62700: I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The location is excellent, facing the quiet East 30th St. and only a few minutes’ walk to plural subway stations. It is very central and convenient, and you can walk to the Empire State Building and the New York Public Library area, Herald Square etc. and there are lots of restaurants in the neighborhood. The apartment is beautiful and very neatly kept. It looks over a courtyard full of green. There is everything you need, including the kitchen utensils and bedding, and you can start living pleasantly from day one. Elaine is very nice and reliable, and is always willing to assist if you have any questions. I am sure whoever moves in will have a wonderful time living in this lovely apartment.
