Living in this apartment was absolutely wonderful. The space is huge, immensely comfortable, and the furnishings are top-of-the-line. All of the appliances work well and the washer/dryer in the bathroom is a huge plus. The front windows face Morningside Park and bring in great light. The building itself is gorgeous and all the other tenants were quiet and respectful. The landlord - Luther - lives in the building and makes sure it always stays clean and functional. He is extremely prompt about fixing anything. There were no bad suprises at all upon moving in, in fact, everything we learned about the place after signing the lease was an added plus (heated bathroom floors, DVR, etc.) In any part of the country this space would be tremendous, but in NYC its an unbelievable find. The only reason we are moving is for work - otherwise we would stay forever! I cant reccommend this apartment highly enough.
