Unlike many apartments in NYC ours is freshly remodeled with new hardwoods, a brand new kitchen, and bathroom. The room is small (less than 100sqft) and cute, full size bed and super clean. Awesome coffee shop on corner and 3 blocks from 145st subway express station. 20 min from lower Manhattan. We travel up and down the whole island, so it is very easy.
It's got a great coffee shop on the corner called Manhattanville, cute brunch and bar 1 block away! And just a couple minutes walk to some cool night life - if you are not in midtown already..
Yes, 3 blocks walking to express train.
