There is a laundry facility in the basement that accepts credit cards for $1.50 per wash/dry. Dry cleaning service is available one block away. Paid parking garages available across the street. Gym (Planet Fitness) across the street. I occupy one bedroom in this spectacular apartment, but work long hours and am usually out enjoying what the city has to offer. This private room is 100% yours. Apartment common areas are shared, but you will have full, unlimited access to the rest of this large apartment. I will make a point to welcome you, but you are free to come and go as you please. Unless you would like to socialize, you will see very little of me during your stay. I work long hours, but will be available to answer any questions you might have. I have traveled extensively and am very detailed oriented. My goals are to make this an easy, comfortable, and pleasant stay for you. I am confident you will enjoy it here.More

About the neighbourhood
If you’re looking for extra elbow room in Manhattan, head 15 minutes north of midtown to hip and less-dense Washington Heights. Although it requires a 15 minutes subway ride to reach this great uptown escape, the neighborhood’s community feel and plainspoken demeanor make it a great place for visitors looking for value. Want more from Washington Heights? It’s also home to a thriving Dominican populace, and this neighborhood’s local fare is truly something to savor.
Getting around
The 175th Street Express A train is a one minute walk from my apartment. The famous A train, from Duke Ellington's song 'Take the A train', runs express through Manhattan and will take you to all of the major sights to see in NYC.
