THE SUITE: a large, one bedroom / queen bed with private breakfast 'nook' and full bathroom, TV and wireless. Adjacent to the country style kitchen and living room, it is along one side of the overall space, offering ultimate privacy and convenience. A 'bed & breakfast' look and feel, the 9' ceilings, wooden floors and tall windows disguise the trendy 'uptown' neighborhood outside! Air conditiioning, ceiling fans, filtered shower, TV and wireless internet. Use of the fully appointed corporate office adds function; ideal for meetings and work trips, you can skip trying to set up an office on your hotel bed...
THE GUEST ROOMS:
Located on the opposite side of the apatment from the "Suite", the main bedroom (full size bed) is a spacious area in a country style setting. A full size desk creates a private workspace in addition to the larger office room. Two large windows offer a view of the Cloisters and Ft. Tryon 'mountain'.
The second guest room offers a twin bed and full size futon style bed, a small corner desk area and three large windows with our amazing view up the mountain! TV w DVR player and wireless. This is a perfect room when Mom & Dad are in the main guest room and the kids need their own space... or any situation for single sleeping set ups.
A full bathroom is attached to these two guest rooms in a private hallway.
THE COUNTRY KITCHEN:
Our Director, Victoria, has a dangerous hobby; gourmet cooking...so the kitchen, which she designed, has serious cooking in mind. However, for the rest of us, all appliances are there; microwave, toaster oven, juicer...the basics plus AND the awesome Zero Water filter machine; no need to buy plastic water bottles!
THE LIVINGROOM / DINING ROOM;
We just love the electric fireplace; a bit of warmth and a wonderful glow sets a mood of total relaxation. Cozy and comfortable, and a great place to watch the HD TV, a movie (we offer a library of DVDs) or the sunset outside! Its so nice to see 'sky' in NYC...
The dining area seats 4 -6.
THE CORPORATE OFFICE:
Actually, this is a 4 bedroom apartment - huge - but this room, equal in size to the living room, is now a fully appointed office and ideal for corporate or client meetings: two large 'desk' tables and a conference table that seats 6, plus a work center with fax, scanner, printer, desktop MAC with guest log in, hard line phone and other 'necessities' . We use it for our presentations and partner meetings when we all connect in NYC - our 'think tank' environment.
A bit odd to mention the entry area, but we set it up as a small seating area in case clients are ahead of schedule or want to relax and chat. Just thought you should know...
This neighborhood has the most amazing architecture; originally Dutch, the courtyard style of this building and others in the area are wonderfully relaxing and romantic. Entering from Broadway, a busy artery that runs the full length of Manhattan island, you pass thru a 'breezeway' into a private , landscaped courtyard. Each entry area is called a "house". Enter the "house" via a security door to the elevator. The property has security cameras and an on-site Super, a fully (immaculate) laundry room across the courtyard and is wheelchair accessible.
Adjacent to the building is the A Train subway; this is amazingly convenient...it takes 18 minutes to get to Times Square, about 20 to get to Penn Station. The 1 train is four blocks east, traveling a different route, or at 168th street, they intersect. We love being able to pop onto the A train and head south to midtown or all the way to Battery Park.
Arrival from LaGuardia or Kennedy airports is amazingly easy compared to dealing wth midtown traffic; off hours, a 20 minute drive. Since the location is above the midtown area, and north of the George Washington Bridge, it bypasses most of the 'mess'. Crossing thru the Bronx area brings you to the major interstates heading north and south. The Saw Mill River Parkway is an easy escape route also heading north or south on the west side of Manhattan Island.
The area is called "Inwood Hills Park" and is more commonly known as a small section of Washington Heights. It is the more northern end of Manhattan, where the rivers that surround NYC meet. The buildings are not more than 7 stories tall, so it is more of a living community than a commerce area. The building is at the corner of Broadway and Dyckman, where Riverside Drive ends. It's 3 blocks from the Henry Hudson Parkway and along the Hudson River (west) and 4 blocks from the East Side Drive (FDR) and the East River. Easy access to the airports...
The area has been nicknamed the "South Beach of NYC" due to the disproprotiante numbers of unique restaurants in the area; just around the corner on Dyckman is restaurant row; all types of cuisine and each is a little jewel to visit. At the end of the 'row' is the now famous La Marina restaurant and entertainment venue; you can pull up in your yacht and have a fantastic view of the George Washington Bridge! A growning area of NYC, it is unique in the world. Next to Fort Tryon, which you can hike in addition to trails along the Hudson, this is the highest peak in NYC, actually a mountain area. The famous Cloisters sits atop the mountain, visible from the apartment guest rooms. A favorite of ours, the New Leaf Cafe is also located there.
At street level, across from the entry is a 24 hour grocery; a life saver on more than one occasion. Banks, liquor stores, night clubs, delicatessens, butchers, retail stores; all are in the area offering convience all around.
