Bright 2 BR in Hudson Heights - Close to A Expr train & Columbia

New York, New York, United States
Rates from USD $3250 | Monthly

Apartment or Condo | Entire Home | House Sitting Requested
Available Dates:
From September 1, 2024 until June 30, 2025


I am dividing my time between Europe and NYC, and am looking for someone to take care of my home while I am away. I have a lovely 2 BR apartment half a block from the highest point of Manhattan, on the top 5th floor of a walkup. Smaller bedroom has been set up as a home office, and the bedroom has a nice California King bed. There is a new queen size airmattress with new pillows, comforter and linens that can be set up in the office permanently or if you have visitors and there is a new corner sleeper sofa with storage in the living room (not the sofa in the photos). Office, bathroom and bedroom all face west and the street, and all you see is sky and the top floors of the Tudor apartment buildings across the street. Very quiet neighborhood on a tree lined street with no through traffic, this is one of the best kept secrets of NYC. A express train takes you to midtown in 15-20 min, and you have all you need within 3-4 blocks of the apartment: Grocery stores, bank, restaurants, nail salons and hairdressers and so on. Perfect for someone at Columbia presbyterian for example, or a couple who wants to stay away from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan we all know from TV and movies.. Closet and drawers in bedroom will be emptied for you, as well as hall closet @ the entrance. I provide bed linen and towels for both the Ca King bed and the Queen air mattress.

Comments: I spend part of the year in Scandinavia and part if the year in NYC. I am a considerate and quiet neighbor looking for someone similar to care for my very loved home as if it was their own. Looking for a responsible, non-smoker to sublet my fully furnished 2 BR apt in Hudson Heights. 5th floor walk up with laundry room in the basement. The apartment has great light, and the office, bathroom and bedroom face west and the quiet treelined street. A subway line is half a block away and will get you to midtown in 20 min. All you need in the area; grocery stores, several bodegas, restaurants and shopping. Fort Tryon Park is a 15 minute walk away. Rent is 3200/month including TV, Internet and utilities.
