Overview

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 Rear Library Suite sits on the second floor of a 5-story 19th century Upper East Side Townhouse. The apartment is accessed via our central staircase. There is no elevator.

Two flights above the lobby and away from the street sits the Rear Library, which exudes a kind of palatial serenity, owing to its spacious size, princess-worthy netting and cream bedding around the queen sleigh bed, and an entire wall of floor-to-ceiling books. The south-facing suite gets lots of light through its three lace-clad windows, which overlook a garden and terrace, and the daybed certainly makes one of the more enticing nap spots you will come across. The floors, of a beautiful oak parquet, the imposing marble fireplace, and the 10' ceiling all also contribute to the expansive quality of the room. A large oriental rug, the inviting wrought iron and brass daybed, a bureau, and antique armoire, and a round dining table with three chairs complete the suite's furnishings. Please note Fireplace may not be used/ornamental only. 345 ft² (32 m²). We have a one time USD $25 fee for set-up & use of daybed.

The bedroom is furnished with 1 Queen Bed (sleeps maximum 2) and 1 Twin Bed (sleeps maximum 1). Also included are a TV, complimentary WiFi Internet & air conditioning. Extras included such as hair dryer, iron and ironing board. Clean linens, towels and pillows provided. Cotton bedding, down pillows and blankets. The kitchen is stocked with a stove/oven and refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster oven, french press, drip coffee maker, and electric water kettle. Pots, pans, cups, utensils & plates. The compact galley kitchen is small, but quite serviceable. We’ve equipped it with everything our guests need to make basic meals and snacks.

The en-suite bathroom is the most recently renovated in the entire townhouse and consists of a recently re-built tiled shower, pedestal sink, and toilet.

The Brownstone is situated in the much sought after LENOX HILL neighborhood of the Historic Upper East side section of Manhattan and a short walk 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. Shopping is plentiful including Bloomingdales, Barney's, Bendel's and Bergdorf-Goodman.

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.

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 five 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.
