My wife and I spent 8 nights in this lovely studio with a garden. Although the apartment faces the off ramp of the 59th street bridge from the second floor, the noise was no more than on any street in NYC. The place had a lot of charm and a lovely garden outside the studio. The location is perfect for transportation and markets. The building is quiet and safe. The landlord is a pleasure to work with and we shall stay there again when visiting NYC.
