Huge Master Bedroom is yours in my beautiful, 2-bedroom, 1 bath luxury doorman building near Gracie Mansion & beautiful Carl Shurz Park.  Utilities included - I'm rarely home, your own place for the price of a share! Available from September 1, 2020 on for up to a year. Welcome!

The space
Luxury 24-Hour Doorman building down the block from Gracie Mansion and beautiful Carl Shurz Park with river view.  Renting the huge private Master Bedroom with dresser, bookshelves, 2 large closets, 1 linen closet, Ligne Roset sofa and chair set in bedroom, King bed, shared bathroom, wireless internet, full use of beautifully-equipped kitchen and large living area.  Gym and solarium on top floor of building, pool annual membership access only, laundry room access in basement.  Utilities included (electric and AC in summer).  Transportation close by - bus and 4, 5, 6 and new Second Avenue subways.  Quiet, elegant residential area with great shopping (including Fairway and Whole Foods) just 2/3 blocks away!  Parking on street or you can make an arrangement with a garage close by or in the building. Close to the Metropolitan and Whitney Museums, as well as the Neue Gallery, International Center of Photography, and many, many other wonderful attractions in the city. 

LONG TERM RENTAL of at least 3 months prefered. September is open for short term rentals of one week or more.

My daughter and I share the small second bedroom. We stay up in the Catskills with occasional forays into the city (once or twice a month tops during this time period, so it's like having your own apartment for the price of a share.  No guests without approval for safety reasons. No smoking of anything whatsoever in the apartment. You are responsible for keeping the apt neat and clean (I mean that) with a consciousness of sanitizing regularly at the forefront. A monthly cleaning fee is mandatory.  I will do my part whenever I am there. If you need additional linens to those I provide, they will be at your own expense. If you want me to include housekeeping 1X a month we can add that in based on $100 per visit.

Please let me know if you want a long term rental... 3 - 6 months or more is my preference. We can talk about shorter terms as well. If you are a couple the rent will be $2500 a month. You will find it a peaceful and happy haven in a busy city. I'll fill you in on the neighborhood and New York City the best I can when you arrive. Always happy to have a chat. I'm always available should you need anything. Enjoyment of life and a positive attitude are encouraged and welcome!

Namaste.

Guest access
Gym, Laundry, Rooftop Terrace/Solarium. Whole apt., living room and kitchen totally available, save for the second bedroom/terrace. This is a private space - please do not enter.

Other things to note
Crosstown bus stop is right across the street and drops you off at the Lexington or Second Avenue subway lines when you don't want to walk. Fairway close by and loads of good restaurants. Museums down the street and/or close by. Carl Shurz Park is a jewel.

This is a fun, safe, peaceful residential neighborhood steps away from transportation to greater New York. Good local shopping, incuding a Fairway and many restaurants to choose from. My favorite is Carl Shurz Park, a gem down the block from the apartment. Walk right down to the waterfront in minutes.

I am a yoga teacher, travel consultant and filmmaker who lives in the Catskills for the better part of each month with occasional visits to my beautiful New York City apartment on the Upper East Side. I travel quite and bit and teach on the weekends at a spa upstate, so you essentially have the whole apartment to yourself for the price of a shared rental. I'm into having a good relationship with whomever stays at my home. Not really into the party mode but guests are welcome if you keep it down to a dull roar. I keep the place super clean and expect you to do the same, even in your bedroom. Feel free to use the living room, dining room, desk whatever you need. I'm into honesty and integrity so speak up and feel at home. I've always been involved in the arts so movies, music and art are my guiding lights. I'm pan-spiritual and environmentally conscious - you, I hope, follow your own star. I'm adding a note during this challenging time period so that any prospective guest knows that we are very serious about sanitizing and cleaning the apartment. We are also willing to limit our visits to one or two times a month, leaving the space entirely to you the balance of the time. We will alert you to the visit in advance and will take all the necessary precautions to insure our mutual safety and good health. Welcome!

During your stay
We are not often at the apartment - when we're there we're into chatting after the work day is over. Interested and open.
