Description
1 Bedroom Apartment Rental in Chelsea (NY-11177)
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom - Sleeps 3

This one bedroom apartment is located in Chelsea, a neighborhood on the West Side of Manhattan, New York. It is on the 3rd floor (equivalent to the 2nd European floor) of a 4-story, walk-up brownstone townhouse with a buzzer security system at the entrance. The unit measures 500 sq ft (approx. 46 m²) and has a southwestern exposure, overlooking the street below.

This apartment has an almost romantic feel to it, with ivory and soft blue walls, ceiling moldings, lovely windows with gauze-like drapes and a variety of light wood furnishings that compliment the blond wood floors. The front door of the air-conditioned apartment opens into the living area, which has high ceilings and two windows that let in the sunlight. It is furnished with a queen-size sofa bed, coffee table and side tables, facing a decorative fireplace with a large wall-mounted mirror above it. There is also a wooden dining table that seats two guests and a small digital television. The open kitchenette is equipped with a four-burner gas stove, microwave, mini-fridge, coffee maker, toaster and cooking utensils. The bedroom is bright and contains a double bed, an armoire and nightstands. The bathroom, styled in bolder colors than the rest of the apartment, includes a tub-shower, toilet, and a washbasin with storage cabinet below and a wall-mounted mirror above.

Situated on West 22nd Street & Ninth Avenue in Chelsea, this one bedroom apartment is conveniently near three subway stations. You can take the C and E trains at 23 Street / 8 Avenue (3 blocks) and at 14 Street / 8 Avenue (8 blocks), where you can also catch the A and L trains. Alternatively, you can walk 7 blocks to the 18 Street / 7 Avenue station, which is on line 1. Chelsea is the center of NYC’s thriving art scene, packed with over a hundred art galleries and a contemporary art museum, located directly west of the rental. A block further west is the Hudson River Park, with a beautiful bike and roller-blading path along the Hudson River, offering spectacular views of downtown Manhattan. About 6 blocks south, you’ll find Chelsea Market, which takes up the entire city block. It is an amazing indoor market housing over a dozen different gourmet food and wine purveyors, including freshly baked breads, pastries, seafood and produce. There are also numerous boutiques and specialty stores. From there, walk 2 blocks further south to the Meatpacking District, a trendy neighborhood with hip nightclubs, bars, and restaurants. Try the Southeast Asian specialties at Spice Market and don’t miss out on the cocktails at The Standard Grill (all within a half-mile radius / approx. 0.8 km).

I had the pleasure of staying at this apartment for 4 months. From the initial enquiry with Darrell at NYC Habitat to the end of my stay at the apartment I cannot fault the experience. Blaise was a lovely & helpful person to deal with and the apartment itself exceeding my expectations. I will not only recommend NYC Habitat to anyone that takes an extended stay, I will also recommend this apartment. Location- tick. Apartment- tick. Cleanliness- tick. Building - tick.

The owner has been very helpful. The only problem is the central heating because the heating stopped a lot of times at 10pm when I was working at house with the computer and as the cold was quite intense I couldn't work any more.

Also some problems with the wifi. But in conclusion the stay was nice.

Thanks Alba, for your review and comments. We did have a problem with the thermostat for our building at the beginning of winter, and after working with our heating system maintenance company we were able to fix the problem and keep the heat running consistently.

The wifi network has been recently upgraded as well. We continue to work with Verizon in providing internet and phone service as an included amenity for our guests, but since hurricane Sandy they have had repeated outages of service, and we are considering our options going forward.

Best regards,
Blaise

We moved to New York in January 2013 and spent our first two months in this apartment. It suited us perfectly, the owners were helpful, the living room is incredibly light and spacious, and the apt. is well heated.

If I had one negative, which would sit amongst the dozens of positives, the hot water is not always reliable, especially in the evenings, but this really is the only thing to improve upon.

Otherwise I highly recommend this as a place to stay - the street and area have great appeal.

Answer by: Apartment Owner

Thanks, Willa - we're glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, and we wish you well in your new New York home.

On the subject of the hot water, the system in our house is a bit different than what many people have at home, and this can cause some difficulties. Both hot water and steam heat for the entire building are provided by a high-capacity bio-diesel fueled boiler in the cellar - as you noted, the apartments are well heated, so there is no fundamental problem with the boiler.

However, the hot water system is "tankless" (hot water is generated on demand rather than being stored in a hot water tank) - this is more energy efficient than keeping the water hot in a tank.

The tankless operation does mean that the hot water never "runs out" - however, there is a limit to the hot water that can be generated at once. If there are many users of hot water at once, and especially if several of them are running the hot water tap fully open to "get the cold water out of the system" it can create a total flow that exceeds the heating capacity of the system - the result is lukewarm (or in winter, cool) water to everyone.

The solution to the problem is to back off the hot water tap and run it at a moderate flow rate.

It can take a minute for the tankless heating coil in the boiler to reach its operating temperature if the system is not already running for hot water or steam heat, but this will actually take longer with a full open flow than with a moderate flow. In some cases (dishwasher and washing machine running at the same time as several people showering or filling the bath) backing off to a moderate flow may not solve the problem.

However, dishwasher and washing machine fills only take a few minutes, so turning off the hot water entirely and waiting just four minutes should be enough to allow you to get sufficient hot water (there is no need to wait half an hour or more for a hot water tank to completely re-heat).

Very nice experience. Great location. Nice looking building and very beautiful apartment with three magnificent windows looking outside. Owner very nice, present and helpful. Everything was working perfectly, subway station, restaurants, markets, laundry nearby.

If the cleanliness of the apartment and building could be improved a little, this place will be a dream. I, certainly, will be back.

Answer by: Apartment Owner

Thanks Adriana, for your review and comments. On the issue of cleanliness, we do our best to clean the apartment thoroughly before a guest's arrival but it can be difficult to thoroughly clean everything when it has been a month or more since the last turnover. Some guests are meticulous about keeping the apartment clean, but unfortunately that is not always the case.

There is a good and reliable cleaning service that we have used on many occasions, and we will be encouraging (strongly recommending) that our guests have them come to clean the apartment twice a month (mid-stay if they are only renting for a single month) - this would cost only $65 for a three hour cleaning, which is a lot of time for a one bedroom apartment - this should improve the guest experience and help to avoid issues with cleanliness that may build up over time.

At this time we are not planning to make this mandatory, as many guests keep the apartment quite clean themselves, but we may consider doing so in the future.

Over and above the specific conditions of the property, there is a very nice atmosphere created by the gentleness of the landlords. My particular apartment was also wonderfully light.

Review by: Michael M.,

I stayed here for a month while going through a very intensive course and I chose to stay in this apartment because the location was ideal. Unfortunately it added a lot of stress to an already stressful experience.

The place seemed like it had been cleaned unprofessionally and very quickly, dust was on every surface. There were also mice and cockroaches but I hear that's fairly common in New York.

Most of it had to do with the fact that construction was going on downstairs the entire time. There was a lot of noise during the day and the internet was completely unreliable. When I called one of the owners about needing the internet he seemed annoyed with me and said he would try to fix it when he got back into town in a few days. There was a week where they seemed to be painting, I think and paint fumes wafted into the upstairs apartment. They were so strong that I had to open all of the windows in the middle of the night too keep from getting sick.

Pretty much every appliance was broken. The coffeemaker overheated and set off the smoke alarm but the iron didn't even heat up.

The apartment was in a beautiful location, though, and the owners seemed very nice at first. All in all I just don't believe that this was a very good fit for either of us. If I were to have been on a short vacation, it would have been a bit better but having to deal with so many problems when I was working 18 hours a day made things difficult. The owners got incredibly rude towards the end of my stay, as well. They treated me like I was a burden for trying to get the things that were supposed to work fixed which I didn't really appreciate. It seemed like they were under a lot of stress because of the construction.

Thanks for the feedback, Michael! We spoke with the owners about all of the issues you mentioned. They informed us that the renovations are over now.

With regards to the internet, they have enhanced the wireless internet coverage for the apartments by installing an additional access point in the fourth floor hallway. They said that there were some intermittent outages during the renovation but those have also been resolved.

We are sorry you didn't have the best experience but we really appreciate the feedback.

Landlord was most accomodating. A pullout sofa sleeper was brought in during our stay to replace the futon that was there. It was more comfortable than the futon, and looked better,too.

We used the kitchen a lot; it has been remodeled (I think the photos on the website need to be updated) and it was well stocked with kitchen tools and some (nonperishable) food staples.

The apt. accomodated 3 family members well. There was one early morning incident (4am) that awakened us and caused us some concern. A tenant (intoxicated) had apparently forgotten or lost his keys and was swearing and pounding on the downstairs doors. I did not, but someone did, open the door. My daughter told me the door was left unlocked until approx. 7:30 the next morning.

The landlord (when informed) was concerned; he said nothing like that had ever happened before. He told me if anything like that did happen again, to have no compunction about calling the police. He also emailed all the other tenants, reminding them to keep the door locked at all times. He also emailed the neighbors, to find out if they had heard anything that night.

The neighborhood was lovely. Other than that one isolated incident, I felt very safe and had a very pleasant stay.

Thank you for your feedback, Joan. We're glad to hear you had a nice stay, despite that one incident.

We visited the apartment to take new pictures of the pullout sofa sleeper,remodeled kitchen, and everything else that needed to be updated.

The new images are now displayed on our website!

The location of this apartment can't be beat! An extremely quiet apartment on a tree-lined residential street, it is just steps from the highline, the Hudson, Chelsea Market, the subway, plenty of restaurants and shops, etc.

The building dates to the 1920s (I think) and needs significant repair/renovation. Paint and wood flooring are chipping, windows are dirty, furnishings are a bit dated and musty, etc. The kitchen is absolutely tiny.

That said, the apartment is spacious and well-lit, the bed is comfortable and the space does have character and charm. it's a wonderful place for a short-term stay and I really don't think the location could be any better.

The owner is very kind and accommodating.
