New York, New York, United States
Make yourself at home in this fully furnished apartment, steps from City College (W. 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--while not an office with a door, it functions like one. 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 courtyard, exercise room and roof deck with a sweeping view of the Hudson river and midtown Manhattan. I've got great neighbors, many of whom have been in the building for years: musicians, a children's book editor and teachers. Transportation: Nearest subways are the 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. There is a CityBike docking station just outside the front door on the corner of Amsterdam and 136th! About the neighborhood: The neighborhood is called Hamilton Heights or West Harlem. I feel safe, here with great restaurants opening every week, and filled with people from the Dominican Republic, students and professionals from all over. Columbia's new Manhattanville campus boasts Renzo Piano architecture, a climbing wall, and the Wallach Art Gallery, a beautifully curated (free) gallery with sweeping views of the Hudson. Thanks to the Audubon Mural Project you'll see fabulous murals of birds throughout the neighborhood. (Charles Audubon is buried in Trinity cemetery at 155th street.) Across the street go to the Hispanic Society to see the monumental Sarolla murals. In nearby St. Nicholas park you'll see Alexander Hamilton's former grange. The Hudson River and Riverside park are just down the street. 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. Friends and family who stay here give it five stars! You could be my first Sabbatical Homes review. More pictures available upon request.
