We enjoyed our one week visit of NYC very much because we felt so much at home at the West Townhouse. Its location is perfect, close to shops, restaurants and Central park and yet very quiet. Beautiful rooms, charming furniture, extremely clean and neat - we would say "sehr gemütlich". Monica&Larry are wonderful hosts and gave us great advice.

It has it all: Great location in a safe residential area, apartments in which you really feel at home, the Central Park around the corner. For us it was also great to have both the Natural History Museum as well as the... More

My partner and myself stayed with Monica for 11 days in October ! What a beautiful brownstone apartment. We stayed in apartment 1, and it was a perfect size for the two of us. It was very clean, and quiet for NYC! Monica was extremely helpful throughout the whole booking process and offered her help whilst we were staying there!... More

My partner and I had a fantastic stay at Monica and Larry's apartment. We had about 9 nights in the apartment and I can't speak highly enough about how helpful Monica was with regards to suggestions (dining, places to visit, transportation) and answering any questions we had during our time in NYC. It was certainly a highlight of our trip... More

Our family of 4 adults booked two adjoining apartments in this gorgeous brownstone building on the upper west side for a week. The rooms were huge and beautifully furnished. Each had it's own kitchen facilities. Being two separate apartments meant we then had two bathrooms which sped things up in the mornings. The only drawback was no elevator, but this... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
