Enjoy Central Park views from your bedroom window! This is the ideal apartment for those who like easy access to the high energy city by day, but prefer to come home to a peaceful, tree-lined neighborhood to get a good night of rest. Please read the whole profile, most of your questions will be answered below! :)

The space

Although I live in the apartment as well, guests will have full privacy in the guest wing of my apartment with a private bedroom, private bathroom, and undisturbed entrance. You're welcome to use my shared living room and kitchen like it's your own home, with stunning views of Central Park's wooded forest. This is a perfect place for those visiting Columbia University, which is only three blocks away. There is space for a third and fourth guest on the sofa bed and couch in the living room, at additional cost. I don't recommend bringing a fifth guest (it will feel cramped!) but if you need to, there is additional space in the living room, two on the queen sofa bed, one on the regular couch.

The building has everything you need: laundry, a room to store bicycles, and an elevator so you don't have to walk up the stairs after a long day of exploring the city.

Guest access

You'll have access to your private bedroom and bathroom, the second shared bathroom, my living room, kitchen, and laundry room.

While there isn't private parking at the building, there is free parking on the street. It can take 5-20 minutes to find a parking spot, depending on time of day.

Interaction with guests

My bedroom is in another wing of the apartment, so you'll have complete privacy while you're in my home. I work long hours, so I won't be home during the day (although if I am out of town for work, I will have a family member house-sitting for me). However, if you need anything at all, don't hesitate to text or call me. Even if it's just for a good recommendation on where to eat!

Other things to note

Please note that there are families in the apartments on both sides of me. This is a place for relaxation and rest, so please be respectful of my neighbors. Thanks!

This space is LGBT friendly and I do not discriminate against anyone. Please maintain the respectful vibe!

Had a wonderful stay. Clean and comfortable place and a convenient location in terms of access to public commute, eating places and of course, the proximity to Central Park.

Max Alex is a great Host, we had wonderful and very comfortable stay in his Apartment. The Area is quite peaceful and Subway and super markets are just 2 min away. Kitchen is fully equipped. Very comfortable Living room with big TV. He allowed us to use his big Bathroom so sweet of him. Though the Bedroom we expected to be big but it is small but comfortable enough for a couple. We will definately stay again in futute. He is reachable easily and he is quite Co operative in all manners. We stayed from 30th March to 4th April. Once again Thanks Max we had wonderful stay in your Apartment will look forward to see you in future and we will definately suggest our friends and relatives who wish to visit New York. Cheers Mohammadi Partapgharwala

We had a great time in NYC and this place really helped. It is super quiet which in our experience is hard to find in the city. Local markets, Central Park and the subway are all right there. The private bathroom is also really nice and hard to find. We recommend this place.

Not a bad place for the price. Could have provided more linens in the bathroom for the time we were there. Overall not bad location for the money. Just a few blocks from subway stop.

Response from Alex:
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay Scott! Unlike a hotel, it's not common with Airbnb to have "housekeeping" to change your sheets and towels during your stay. However, if you had asked me for extra linens, I would have been happy to provide more. It's always worth asking instead of waiting until after you've left :) Keep my place saved for the next time you're in NYC!

Alex is a great guy that is very helpful. He gives you a cool guide to NYC and his area. Location is a 2-3 minute walk to central park.. If that!!!! Very clean apartment and his ammenites are great! Buliding is old and not great but his room was nice! We are not airbnb people as we prefer hotles but this was a nice stay. The location here to the park was amazing!!!!

I was born in Manhattan and raised in the suburbs, but I've been back in the city since grad school. I'm an avid world traveler, and I finally visited my 100th country last year! I always appreciate authentic local experiences and food more than the touristy spots, and I'm happy …
