We rented this delightful apartment for 4 weeks in may 2012. It was light and vey comfortable, with a large rooftop deck where we often sat out and enjoyed a meal, the evening light, the morning sunshine. Wonderful to be in New York and feel that you are in nature, with the light and space and air the deck brings. The apartment is near the hudson river and park lands and just a few blocks from central park. The station is a very short walk away (2-3 min) and makes travel to downtown so easy. There are amazing delis near by, this being New York, there is music and interesting talks as it is near Columbia University. Sascha, the owner, was incredibly helpful, and available. I had a small problem with the television and a carbon dioxide alarm and he had it sorted immediately. I felt in very good hands and would thoroughly recommend his comfortable,light and welcoming apartment.
