I have lived in my apt for 10 years, and I am still thrilled when I go outside. The famous Dakota is across the street; and Central Park is gleaminng just 4 buildings away; Go anywhere! 2 subway lines and 2 bus lines on the corner. Totally safe 24/7. Walk to Lincoln Center; museums; art movie houses and dozens of restaurants and cafes; boutique shops and 15 minutes to Broadway. Pullman kitchen where you can make your own breakfast, and kickback with a snack late nights after going everywhere.
No real rules; just remember its not a hotel and the desk is not a concierge, and both the desk and other residents on the floor assume you are friends of mine.
