Next to the long boulevard in Riverside Park, there are plenty of opportunities to walk and for the kids to play in its multiple playgrounds. Meanwhile, the best restaurants, bars, shops, museums and theater in the world are on your doorstep.

Why Kids Love it

There’s an excess of arts, culture and kid-friendly activities in the area, most within 20 minutes by public transit or an easy walk away. The American Museum of Natural History has a Discovery Room where kids can build a life-size dinosaur skeleton and play in an interactive treehouse. Within 10 minutes by foot is The Children’s Museum of Manhattan that aims to introduce little ones to the arts, and Symphony Space, which has a programme of book and film events for kids.

About the Location

The residence is on the third floor of the Riverside Terrace apartment block in Manhattan’s Upper West Side. It is approximately 40 minutes by taxi/Uber from John F. Kennedy International Airport and 30 minutes from LaGuardia Airport in Queens. The Upper West Side is a safe, residential area characterised by tree-lined brownstone blocks, and peace and quiet. It is famously family-friendly and restaurants and cafés that welcome children are on the doorstep. Central Park, perfect for picnics, play and outdoor theater in the summer, is a 15-minute walk away.

Accommodation Details

The apartment has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom and is on the third floor without an elevator. The living/dining room has a table and seating for up to 4. A door leads out to a small balcony with wooden outdoor seating and a table and chairs. There’s a well-equipped galley kitchen and a family bathroom with a Jacuzzi bath tub and shower. The master bedroom has a queensize 4-poster bed and the second bedroom has a lofted double bed. There is also an office with a small double futon sofa bed that sleeps up to an additional 2 guests.

Style Notes

City chic. With its high ceilings, abundance of natural light and ethnic design touches, this residence is sophisticated and inviting. Wooden latticed shelves and parquet floors greet you in the sitting room, where a patterned quilt is hung above the ornamental fireplace. There's also a mid-century Eames chair tucked in the corner, beside a set of doors which open onto a Juliet balcony. We love the modern 4-poster bed, the charming bay window and the natural wood tones and jade tiles in the bathroom.
