About the property

🌞Tree-Lined East 62nd Street 🌞 Two Blocks to Best Madison Avenue Shopping 🌞

Located on East 62nd Street between Park Avenue and Lexington Avenue, the apartment sits on the top floor of a 5-story 19th century Upper East Side Townhouse. There is no elevator. The fully furnished 4-room, convertible 3-bedroom NYC home spans almost 1000 SF and loaded with turn-of-the-century charm charm. With it’s location 4 flights above the house’s main ground floor entry hall, the apartment will reward you with two high-perched but radically diverging views, from the front and the back of this full-floor suite.

The large front room of the apartment is furnished with a love seat and coffee table as well as an antique dining table with chairs. Additionally the room features a queen bed (sleeps 2), an antique bureau, three windows to East 62nd Street, and a fireplace*, adding old New York charm. Located at the other end of the suite is a large bedroom which offers a queen bed (sleeps 2) and closet in addition to an antique bureau with marble top. In this bedroom there are two windows facing the garden and a 2nd fireplace* with marble mantle. At the same end of the apartment is a small bedroom with twin bed (sleeps 1). It's one window faces the garden side of the townhouse. All beds are U.S. Standard size beds. There is one full bathroom, comprising a tub/shower, WC, and sink. Located through a doorway is the separate kitchen where you can enjoy homemade meals. The galley kitchen is equipped with everything you could need to cook simple meals: an oven, fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, toaster oven and dishwasher. *Please note that the apartment's 2 fireplaces may not be used.

The apartment includes TV & WiFi Internet. Air Conditioning in each room. Extras included such as hair dryer, iron and ironing board. 100% cotton linens, towels, quilts, down blankets and down pillows provided.

The Brownstone is situated in the much sought after LENOX HILL neighborhood of the Historic Upper East side section of Manhattan and a 5 minute walk (0.2 mi) to CENTRAL PARK and some of New York's finest shopping districts. The House's location, a quiet residential enclave for some of New York's most prestigious addresses, enjoys the best of both worlds – serene privacy and un-matched convenience. The neighborhood abounds with tasteful, exclusive boutiques and charming, international restaurants. Yet, the house is only three blocks from bustling Midtown and some of the City's fabulous and world renown Museums & galleries including the Frick, The Metropolitan and MoMa.

The beautiful brownstone building is conveniently located within walking distance to the Met, Carnegie Hall, the Frick Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, Central Park Zoo & Rockefeller Center. Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is a quick 12-minute Uber ride just across the Park or to TIMES SQUARE by Taxi or subway. We are in a perfect location for NYC Marathon Runners - as we are very close to the finish line!

The East River Esplanade is approximately a 25 minute walk.

Shopping is plentiful including Bloomingdales, Barney's, Bendel's and Bergdorf-Goodman. We are one avenue away from Madison Avenue's most select and high end boutiques. Urban conveniences make living here a breeze, and there are basic living facilities and shops within walking distance, including Whole Foods Market, Duane Reade Pharmacy, a shoe repair, dry cleaners, nail salons, hair salons, Starbucks and much more.

Public transportation around NYC is made easy from this location. Consider using the subway station at 60th Street / Lexington Avenue, which serves the 4, 5, 6, N, Q, R trains and F train on 63rd Street (all servicing up and downtown) (express and local). Bus located around the corner. The subway will take you to the Southern tip of the city (Freedom Towers - 9/11 Memorial) within 20 minutes.

The house is a six minute walk to Central Park and Fifth Avenue, 12 minutes to Times Square by Taxi and 11-14 minutes by subway; Grand Central Station is one subway stop away (take the 4 or 5 one stop from 59th street to Grand Central Station); walking distance to Fifth Avenue and Midtown East with its ubiquitous Corporate Offices as well as midtown Manhattan's exclusive Decoration & Design building (D&D building) and Manhattan Art and Antiques Center. Architects, Designers and Collectors from around the world travel to this area for its concentration of design and home furnishings showrooms and galleries.

The country's best hospitals and medical facilities including Memorial Sloan Kettering, Weill Cornell Medical College, Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, New York-Presbyterian hospital, Lenox Hill Hospital, the Hospital for Special Surgery and Mount Sinai Hospital are ideally located minutes away from the house.

We generally maintain a 4 night minimum. Shorter stays are considered for last minute or shorter stay openings between other stays. If you'd like to stay for fewer than 4 nights, we suggest you initially send us an inquiry to verify the minimum night stay for your desired dates. Thank you!

MINIMUM AGE REQUIREMENT = 10 YEARS: 1871 House is a converted 146 year old Brownstone. In that it is an historic building constructed in the year 1871 there is no elevator and all suites are accessed by our central open staircase. Regretfully, this feature (the house's unenclosed staircase) makes it unsafe for young children under 10 years of age to stay in the house.

Celebrity sightings and Gossip Girl shoots may be regular occurrences around the Upper East Side, but the neighborhood's real appeal emerges from its refined character. Home to some of the City's finest museums, restaurants and shops, as well as the stately mansions and statuesque apartment houses where New York's elite have lived for generations, the Upper East Side exudes elegance on every block. Museum Mile—which runs along Fifth Avenue between East 82nd and East 105th Streets—boasts nine world-class cultural institutions, while Madison Avenue teems with the biggest names in haute couture, both in designer boutiques and at high-end resale shops that sell stylish brands at nearly half-price. When hunger strikes, you can choose from everything from down-home diners to posh restaurants to some of the City's most renowned Japanese sushi spots. Kids and grown-ups alike delight in some of the City's best ice cream sundaes after a day spent meeting exotic wildlife at Manhattan's only zoo. As elegant and historic as it is cutting-edge and exciting, the Upper East Side is a must-see neighborhood that truly offers something for everyone.
