Imagine yourself on the Upper East Side, just half a block from New York's iconic Central Park, in this classic room for rent with fabulous city views. This two bedroom apartment share is situated on the 10th floor of an elevator building with a 24-hour doorman to greet visitors at the door.
Your private bedroom is found off of the living room, at the opposite end of the apartment from the owner's bedroom. The room is painted a rich hunter green, set off by a lovely oak wood shelving unit that frames the trundle bed. The single size bed has a second single size mattress nestled underneath that can be pulled out to create a king size bed if you wish. A reclining leather chair match the walls, and offers a spot to relax next to a small table. There is a closet for storing your things out of sight and additional space in the niched shelving above the bed. Two windows allow in sunlight from the north and offer one-of-a-kind views that you can only get while gazing from the 10th floor over Manhattan's Upper East Side.
Outside of your room, you have the bright living room, shared with the apartment owner, providing plenty of comfortable seating. The shared dining area, which also serves as an office, are found down the hallway, painted in a rich red and adorned with an ornate chandelier. Off of this room is the full bathroom, which has charming china patterned wallpaper and a window for natural lighting. For preparing meals, the kitchen is on the east end of the apartment, complete with gas stove with hood and a dishwasher, as well as the ever helpful microwave and coffee maker, also shared with your roommate. This two bedroom apartment share has a room for everything and everyone!
Just beyond your building's door are NYC landmarks: to the west you have Central Park with its trails and athletic fields (1/2 block) and 5th Avenue aka "Museum Mile", lined with the Frick Collection (2 blocks), the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim (both 2 subway stops away), and to the east is Madison Avenue (1/2 block) and its high-end shops, such as Michael Kors, Donna Karan, Gucci and Oscar de la Renta. This location is perfect, offering myriad galleries and museums, shopping options and nature in the middle of a metropolis. Of course, many cafes and restaurants dot the streets, providing nourishment after window shopping or a jog through the park. Two blocks away on Lexington Avenue, you have Hunter College, and on the East Side of the neighborhood is Memorial Sloan-Kettering, one of the finest hospitals in the country. For visiting the rest of the Big Apple, you will have no trouble hailing a cab here, or public transportation is easy with the subway only two blocks away on 68th Street and Lexington, with access to the 6 line. This train will take you through the transit hubs of Grand Central Station in Midtown Manhattan and Union Square off of 14th Street, all the way to SoHo.
