ONLY CONSIDERING LONG-TERM BOOKINGS – 6 MONTHS PLUS – AT THE MOMENT
This is a charming, recently renovated one-bedroom apartment on the second floor of a six-story building, in a quiet, tree-lined neighborhood, with fresh air coming in from the Verrazano Bay, only 3 blocks away.
The apartment has parquet floors throughout, wooden doors, plenty of closet space, and a new bathroom and kitchen (stone-tile floors in both). The kitchen is equipped with a full-size stove, eye-level microwave oven, a great many cabinets.
Fine furniture throughout, mostly wood. A king-size Balinese wood and tatami bed. Light-eliminating easy-pull-down blinds in the bedroom. Antique Bechstein grand piano. Plenty of books (English, Spanish, Russian).
24-inch iMac computer for your convenience - use as a desktop or a TV. High-speed Internet, WiFi network. A powerful, new air conditioner. Video intercom.
Many restaurants and shops are on Third Avenue, one block away. The subway (metro) is two blocks away (express bus into Manhattan also available); a promenade with beautiful views of the bay and the world-famous Verrazano Bridge is three blocks away.
The neighborhood is originally Norwegian, now predominantly Italian, with some Greeks, Russians, etc. Americans all. There are some excellent specialty gourmet shops with fresh vegetables, meat and cheeses and a recently renovated supermarket with a huge organic section within a 2-to-5-block radius. A shopping mall is three blocks away.
The apartment can accommodate up to three people comfortably. Ideal for a couple. An oasis of quiet and good taste that is close to life - only 30 minutes from downtown Manhattan.
The minimum stay is one month. Longer stays -- 6 months plus -- preferred.
The furniture and other items in my apartment have been chosen lovingly and are used with care. I ask that you treat everything as if it were your own (and a little better). Please take special care with the piano - it is an antique.
