I rented this wonderful apartment for 5 months and it was perfect. It is in a very secure building with very friendly 24 hour doormen. The lobby, exercise room and laundry area are kept current and very clean.
The apartment is very spacious for a studio. Furniture is bright and sunny and new. Lots of windows. Plenty of room and plenty of closets - including linen closet in the bathroom.
Just a quick walk to Grand Central Station and the bus stop is just around the corner on 3rd Avenue and on 2nd Avenue. The immediate neighborhood is both clean and safe and has everything you would need.
Margaret, who is the landlord, is so very friendly and accommodating. She is truly a gem.
