Our home

Our apartment is a beautiful & calm oasis in a busy & exciting city. The living room/dining room has floor-to-ceiling windows looking out on a wrap-around terrace which faces south & west. The apartment is filled with books, music, photos, & items we have collected from our travels, but it isn't cluttered or crowded. The apartment is light and airy and it gets sun all day. Our kitchen is small but has a window and a washer/dryer (these are a big deal in NYC!). Our bedroom has a very comfortable king-size bed. (We also have a full-size sofa bed and a full-size inflatable bed, so the apt can sleep additional people.) The building is what is known as a "full-service luxury condominium" with a staff of 20 and a health club with a pool, jacuzzi, & racketball court. It's on a dead-end street so there is not much traffic. The staff is friendly and helpful. I have lived in this apartment for 14 years and just love it! It's the perfect base for exploring NYC.

Who we are

  1. I (Mary) am a native New Yorker, born & raised in the city. I'm an organizational behavior consultant. My husband, Meir, is a director in a firm that consults to government clients on technology. We share a love of travel: Italy is our favorite destination & last year we made a very enjoyable exchange with a delightful couple in Firenze. We've also traveled quite a bit for business. We like films, opera, museums (all the things you can find in NYC), and also hiking and bicycling. I love latin music & salsa dancing, and Meir is a golf enthusiast and classical music lover. We're friendly people, politically liberal, very easygoing, love to laugh.

    NOTE: I have recently changed my e-mail address and had some problems with mail forwarding. If you have sent me a recent e-mail and not gotten a response, please try me again; it should work this time.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The apartment is at the south end of Manhattan's Upper West Side, in an area known as Lincoln Square because Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is here (across the street from our apt; see photo). Here you can see opera, ballet, theater, classical music, jazz, & film festivals.
We are 3 blocks away from Central Park -- you can be there in 5 minutes.
We are within walking distance of the theater district (Broadway) & good shopping (such as Fifth and Madison Avenues). We are 1 block away from one subway (metro) line & 3 blocks away from another line; these trains will take you almost anywhere in the city. There are hundreds of restaurants in our neighborhood,with every different kind of food. Also, many small grocery stores & 3 large supermarkets. Within 6 blocks, there are 4 movie theaters showing new Hollywood releases, foreign films, & special film festivals. It is also easy to get to all the musuems from our apt --one large one is in the Upper West Side, and many others are right across Central Park. What else is there to say -- we're in the middle of everything!
