Description
Room for Rent 3 Bedroom apartment in Upper West Side (NY-6906)
3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 1 Half Bathroom - Sleeps 1

This room for rent is in a four bedroom apartment close to Columbia University in Morningside Heights, part of the Upper West Soide community of NYC. The apartment is in a lovely prewar building with a cavernous classic lobby and an elevator that will take you to the 3rd floor (known as 2nd by Europeans) where the apartment is located. There are laundry facilities in the basement, and a buzzer/intercom system to screen visitors.

The room for rent has plenty of the prewar features that make the building desirable, including wooden doorway and window sashes, and wall moldings. Additionally, the room has the convenience of having another small room with a sink in it. Furnishings include a single size bed, a desk, shelves and a dresser, as well as a fridge and microwave. Additionally there is a closet and a television. A ceiling fan helps circulate the air and a window looks across the street towards neighboring buildings.

The kitchen and bathroom of this four bedroom apartment are shared amongst the roommates. However, note that there is limited access to the kitchen area. Additionally, the living room of the apartment is not available for use.

Please note that there is a dog in this apartment, cared for by the roommate.

Step out the door and you will find yourself across the street from Riverside Park, which runs alongside the Hudson River. This is a great place to relax and enjoy the fresh breeze or you can take advantage of the athletic facilities, ranging from basketball to tennis. The Greenway can be used for biking or jogging, and runs all the way down Manhattan's West Side! The Morningside Heights neighborhood is dominated by Columbia University animation and has plenty of entertainment options. It is full of cafes, restaurants, jazz places, 24 hour stores, and French bakeries. The Columbia campus is just a block away off of Broadway (about 150 meters). The greater Harlem area is also quite entertaining -- 116th Street is a shopping corridor and Central Park starts south of 110th Street. This a great headquarters to discover New York from!

The nearest subway station serves the 1 train -- you can pick it up at either 116th Street and Broadway or at Cathedral Parkway and Broadway. This runs along the west side making local stops, and you can be in Midtown in just 7 stops!

The apartment is great and well located in a very quiet area in front of columbia. It is very convenient to have several 24-hour grocery stores and the subway 110 just down the street. The room is quite spacious and fully equipped (fridge, rice cooker, storage places, desk, microwave). The host is very friendly and available if you have questions. I recommend.

This place is really awesome! It is a nicely decorated apartment with wooden floors and furniture.
I stayed for three years when I was pursuing my Master's Degree in Columbia, and it felt like home to me.

The location is great. Very close to Columba (like 5 to 10 minutes walk).
Also, it is just by the side of the riverside park and has a quiet environment.
5 minutes walk to Westside Market and HMart makes living super convenient.

The interior layout is also great. All the rooms are arranged along a long corridor.
Since the bathroom is shared by the tenants and the owner, this layout give easy access to the amenities, but also gives privacy for each room.
Also, my room has a half bathroom, which gives extra convenience.

The owner is an elderly lady, who gives me a lot of privacy.
But sometimes, we would chat about a lot of things, and I received a lot of guidance from her, in terms of life and future.

Anyway, everything here works well for me, and I would highly recommend this place for anyone attending Columbia or work/study nearby.

During my 10 week stay, the host was helpful orienting to New York, provided engaging conversations, and provided a great amount of privacy in her place. While there were other roommates, they kept to themselves (as did I). It was a comfortable, quiet stay.

Nice Neighbourhood, everything close by and the location is very quite. Lovely, very caring landlady, who lives in the apartment and is looking for you to have a pleasant stay. Myself, Mid20 European rented out this room for 6 months (April-Sep.), had a good time and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

Staying at this apartment for one year was just great! Everything I needed was close by, the room was spacious and comfortable, and Grazyna was a very nice host! Perfect for a student or someone who will stay in NY temporarily!

Grazyna was a great host. Staying there for six months was a wonderful experience. I would highly recommend this place.

The decoration is quite vintage, as if you lived in old times. The overall experience I had here was quite satisfied. The owner is pretty hospital and warm-hearted, who you can treat as a close friend rather than a landlord.

However, there is a tiny problem about the bathroom, where the shower head is a little bit old and you can't expect too much water to come out. Also, it takes a while before the water gets hot. The building is very close to Columbia University and Riverside DR.

I highly recommend this apartment to whomever is looking for an old-fashioned and cozy apartment.

Dear Rachel,

Thank you for your glowing review. Regarding the bathroom: indeed, it takes a while for the hot water to climb up. Sorry about it, but at this point I can't really much improve it.

I am glad to know that it didn't give you too much trouble and that overall you enjoyed your stay in New York. It's good to know that you felt comfortable at my place.

On my side, let me assure you that you were a lovely roommate, considerate and pleasant. I wish you all the best in your further ventures.
