Large 2-bedroom Apartment with Balcony in Manhattan, Short Walk to Central Park

This spacious, bright and modern apartment (940 SQFT - very large by NY standards) is located in Harlem, on Madison Avenue and 123rd street. Renovated kitchen, bathroom and floors. The bathroom was extended and is larger than most in NYC apartments. The kitchen has a lot of counter space. This is a 2-bedroom apartment, but I use one of the bedrooms as an office. There is also a balcony overlooking the courtyard, which was a true blessing during the pandemic.

There is a park right across the street (Marcus Garvey Park). The apartment is also a 10-15 minute walk to Central Park. There are tons of restaurants, supermarkets and shops within short walking distance on Lenox Avenue and 125th street, including the acclaimed Sylvia's and Red Rooster, as well as Barawine, Settepani, and many more. Nearby is also trendy Frederick Douglass Blvd, which includes 'Restaurant Row'.

The apartment is almost right on the dividing line between east and west, so you will be 2 blocks from both east (4-5-6 lines) and west (2-3 lines) side subway lines, which gives you quick access to most areas in the city. Two stops from Grand Central on the express lines (4 & 5). The apartment is also a 15-minute walk to the A-B-C-D lines. The M1 bus drops you off right in front of the building. The apartment is one block away from the M60 bus to LaGuardia airport. It takes you to the airport in about 30 minutes. 20-minute walk from Mt Sinai. Columbia University's main campus is a 30-minute walk away (or, you can take one of several crosstown buses on 125th street). You can also ride your bike to the bike paths on the East river or the Hudson, both a 5-10 minute ride away. The entrance to the Central Park bike path is a 5-minute bike ride away. The location is really great.

The building has a 24-hr doorman. There are laundry machines in the building.

Rent includes electricity charges, hot water, and high-speed internet. It's available immediately for a flexible term.

Lila stayed for the spring semester in my apartment and I am happy to say she is the perfect tenant. Very reliable, left the place in immaculate condition, and was always pleasant to interact with by email or in person. I could not recommend her more highly.
