Overview

About the property

A home away from home in the heart of bustling Manhattan 🗽 Lexington Suite 🗽

Our turn-of-the-century brownstone, known as 1871 House, consists of seven generously sized apartment-style suites housed in a classic 19th-century brownstone on an inviting, tree-lined residential street walking distance to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MOMA, The Frick and The Met Breuer Museum. We’re located on 62nd Street between Park Avenue and Lexington Avenue in the heart of the most famous shopping strip of the Upper East Side of Manhattan and a five minute walk to Central Park. The townhouse is located within the Lenox Hill neighborhood of the Historic Upper East Side. We are currently in our 19th year in business!

If you'd like us to recommend one of our suites or if you have questions please CONTACT us (click on "Contact Owner" next to the photo in the "about the owner" section).

Our 7 suites are listed on VRBO as follows: *869096: Knickerbocker Suite (studio); *666673: Library Rear (studio); *789509: Parlor (studio); *870743: Garden Room (guest room with ensuite bathroom and private terrace); *870744: Front Library (guest room with ensuite bathroom); *64437: Lexington Suite (4-room full floor suite with private bathroom and kitchen) & *870742: Madison Suite (4-room full floor suite with private bathroom and kitchen)

The Lexington Suite consists of 2 rear bedrooms (one queen and one twin bed) in addition to a large front room with another queen bed and adjacent open living area. A full kitchen and central private en-suite full bathroom complete the nearly 1000 ft² (93m²). With it’s location 4 flights above the house’s main ground floor entry hall, if you don’t mind the stairs, the Lexington Suite will reward you with two high-perched but radically diverging views, from the front and the back of this full-floor suite; limited to 5 guests maximum. All beds are U.S. Standard size beds. There is no 4th bed option for this suite.

*Room #1: Front Room: Queen Bed (sleeps 2), Sitting Area w/loveseat & dining table/chairs. Thus, it is used as part bedroom and part living room. We don’t call it a bedroom because it does not have a closet. It does have a door for privacy. The room is also furnished with a bureau;

*Room #2: Large Rear Bedroom: Queen Bed (sleeps 2);

*Room #3: Small Rear Bedroom: Twin Bed (sleeps 1).

*Kitchen - Full galley kitchen with fridge, microwave oven, toaster oven, dish-washer, compact stove top/oven. The kitchen, though not designed for elaborate gourmet cooking, has everything needed for the preparation of simple meals.

* Private bathroom (1) with tub/shower combination

• Original crown moldings, window frames and baseboards are intact; high ceilings, hardwood floors; Sony Bravia 26” LCD HDTV

• All suites are accessed via our central staircase. The house is not serviced by an elevator.

• Central Park: We are a six minute walk to Central Park (2 block walk)

• Times Square: We are 12 minutes to Times Square by Taxi and 11-14 minutes by subway

• Our charming brownstone offset on a side residential townhouse block within Manhattan’s fashionable Upper East Side and convenient to shopping and museums. The pretty shuttered townhouse is in a nicely quiet location two blocks from Central Park. The quiet street makes you forget you’re in the heart of the city.

• Elegantly situated on Manhattan’s fashionable Upper East Side, the House's location enjoys the best of both worlds – serene privacy and un-matched convenience. The house's location is a quiet residential enclave for some of New York’s most prestigious addresses. 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. Shopping is plentiful including the 4 Bs: Bloomingdales, Barney's, Bendel's and Bergdorf-Goodman.

• The house is 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.

• Ideal location minutes away from some of 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.

• Excellent access to transportation with southbound buses on Lexington Avenue (62nd Street) and northbound buses on Madison and Third Avenue (63rd Street). No buses are allowed on Park Avenue. The area has two cross-town bus lines and subway stations are two blocks south at 60th Street on Lexington Avenue (Q,N,R,4,5,6) or one block north at 63rd Street (F train) on Lexington Avenue. Grand Central Station is one subway stop away (take the 4 or 5 one stop from 59th street to Grand Central Station).

• 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.

• All rooms are accessed via our central staircase.

• 4-5 night minimum for most advance reservations. Please send us an email message if you'd like to stay with us for fewer nights!

• EXTENDED STAY REQUESTS (MINIMUM ONE MONTH) - please email us with your estimated budget. We can customize monthly rates. Maximum number of guests for monthly stays is limited to maximum 3 occupants.

* Deposits: A deposit of 25% of the stay is required to confirm a reservation. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover Card. The full balance is due and payable upon check in. Approximately 30 days prior to the reserved arrival date an authorization hold/card authorization is placed for the 75% balance. If your stay falls within 30 days, a hold for 100% of your total will be put on hold.

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.
