Flat / Apartment in New York City, USA

Located in the heart of the the Upper West Side, steps from Central Park, this is a large, recently renovated 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom with luxury finishes. Our apartment is nice and open and spacious. It is light filled, has high ceilings, big rooms, brand new, updated kitchen with eat-in area, plenty of storage space, hardwood floors and brand new comfortable furniture in each room. It is artistically decorated and provides a haven of peace, lacking clutter and an overcrowded feeling.

It can sleep 6 in beds and another 3 couches. There are six air conditioners in the apartment and large windows and large closets. It has three bedrooms - one bedroom has a queen bed, one has a queen and a twin bed and the smallest bedroom has one twin bed. Washer and dryer for laundry are in the apartment. The building is nice: pre-war, doorman, elevator, steps from main subway lines.

There is a dining area for 8. The modern kitchen has brand new stainless steel appliances including microwave, toaster, dishwasher, cooking range and is stocked with pots, pans, plates, wine glasses, serving dishes and silverware. High speed wireless internet, flat screen TV, air conditioning and heat are provided free of charge. The apartment is kept cleaned by a professional cleaning service. We typically leave a small welcome care package for our guests. We also have some information on interesting things to do in NYC that you are welcome to use during your stay.
 
The Upper West Side has historic and beautiful buildings and is home to very interesting museums, beautiful parks, upscale and regular shopping, unique restaurants, and entertainment. Between Amsterdam and Broadway, this apartment is a few blocks to Central Park, and Riverside Park, steps to The Museum of Natural History and Children's Museum of Manhattan, and a short subway ride to key attractions such as Grand Central Station, Top of the Rock, Times Square, Soho, Lincoln Center, Empire State Building, World Trade Memorial, Rockefeller Center, the Intrepid Museum, and more. We are a few blocks from the famous Cafe Lalo. The cross town bus passes by the apartment - that you can use to visit the interesting Upper East Side, home to the Metropolitan Museum, Guggenheim, MOMA and other attractions. The apartment is steps away from the subway stop with subway 1 and a few blocks from subways B/C and is convenient to many sites and attractions of the city. Truly appropriate for a wide variety of profiles that include families, tourists, visitors, students, professionals and elderly couples. Our location near Central Park allows easy access to world-famous sites within it such as the Great Lawn, the Belvedere Castle, Shakespeare in the Park, and much more, which are all within easy walking distance from the apartment.
 
We are a professional family of 2 adults and 4 kids. My husband and I have been married to each other for over 21 years. We both met each other in graduate school in Philadelphia. We are very careful and respectful of other people's homes, having done numerous house exchanges in the US and in Europe.

We have travelled extensively and love travelling with our children as a family to new and interesting places. Our kids are ages - 17, 15, 13, and 11 - they are very active and adaptable kids. We are a fairly laid back, fun loving, minimalistic, hospitable family. We are open to a non-simultaneous exchange if that works.We want to be able to provide our kids the opportunity to travel to new countries and locations in order to expand their appreciation and understanding of different cultures. We love to hike, bike ride, go for long walks, swim and to ski in the summer and the winter and appreciate natural beauty. We love visiting museums, historic sites, spending time in bookstores, at movies, plays and concerts and cafes among other things.
