Alcove Studio Apartment in Upper East Side (NY-14372)
Alcove Studio, 1 Bathroom - Sleeps 2

Make your home away from home on the Upper East Side of Manhattan in this alcove studio apartment. Located on East 61st Street and First Avenue, the apartment is on the 4th floor of a 5 story building with original accents that include arched doorways and basket-weave patterned wood flooring.

The living area of this studio is perfectly situated between the counter of the open kitchen and the sleeping area. It is furnished with a sofa that can conveniently pull out into a double-sized bed, a small coffee table and a television. The sleeping area is separated by an archway (no doors) and has a full size bed and a cute dining table that can also double as a desk to create a workspace. The kitchen has granite counterops and a tiled backsplash, as well as a high counterspace that provides extra room for meal preparation.

Please make note that this apartment can be noisy from traffic outside.

Outside of this studio apartment are plenty of shops and restaurants for you to enjoy. Right around the corner from this apartment is Clearview Cinemas on First Avenue. There is also a restaurant conveniently across from this theater called Barbecue Parlor (on the corner of East 62nd Street) where you can wine and dine as an alternative to cooking at home. There are also supermarkets and plenty of bars nearby to enjoy the New York City nightlife. Of course, as you walk west towards Central Park, you will pass famous streets like Madison Avenue, an opportunity for high class window shopping, and 5th Avenue, also known as "Museum Mile". Also in the area is Hunter College, one subway stop north, and Rockefeller University and the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, one of the most famous hospitals in New York.

The nearest subway station provides access to two major subway lines, the 4, 5 and 6 and the N, Q, and R. What is great about this is that some of these trains run local, helping you get around the Upper East Side or Midtown, and some run express, taking you efficiently to downtown or uptown Manhattan. This transit hub is about 3 blocks away from the apartment. The Roosevelt Island Tram is even closer, just 2 blocks west, and provides a unique experience if you need to reach the island!

Apartment Rental: 6 months

The owner was prompt in helping with problems such as the wifi and clogged toilets except for the last month after we paid our rental. Nevertheless he was nice.

However there were times, many times in fact, in which he entered the house without notifying us, e.g. to install facilities especially during the last month of our stay, most probably for the new tenants. It happened quite a number of times. We felt it was a definite invasion of privacy.

The photos on the website also made the apartment appear larger than it actually was. Lastly, being so close to the queensboro bridge, traffic can be a little crazy at times.

We welcome all feedback as a way to make the next experience better. We encourage tenants to communicate their concerns when they occur, that way we can immediately address any concerns you may have. My husband and I live in the neighborhood and are always available. When a tenant notifies us about a maintenance concern, we do whatever we can to address it as prompt as possible. We always use best efforts to communicate if we need to access the apartment, and only come by if absolutely necessary.

We appreciate the feedback and take every review into consideration to work hard in making every stay great! The photos we use are professional quality photographs that highlight the space. New York Habitat has professional photographers that take quality photographs of the apartment.

They are constantly updating photographs when upgrades have been made to the unit. We take care not to disturb our tenants during their stay, but at times, entry with notice except where impractical, is necessary to conduct maintenance and repairs such as a clogged toilet. As far as noise, the building is very quiet and steps away from parks and the Upper East Side Promenade and First Avenue.

Thank you for the feedback!

Thanks so much for the feedback, Jerraldine! With regards to the pictures, we just revisited the unit and took new ones. We sent our professional photographer to make sure our pictures accurately reflected the apartment.

We are so sorry that you felt an invasion of privacy, we have spoken to the owners about the legal requirement that tenants must be given 24 hour notice prior to entry in the apartment.

Thanks to your feedback, we have updated our information so that everyone is aware of the 24 hour notice requirement and so that this issue does not happen in the future.

We really appreciated hearing from you!
