Perks for the Parents

This classic six New York City apartment, 30 minutes from Midtown in the buzzing Washington Heights district, offers a relaxed bohemian atmosphere and plenty for kids. Spacious and full of natural light, it is in a charming neighborhood known as Hudson Heights, with beautiful river views, parks, bars and restaurants. Just 2 blocks from the A train express and the subway, Manhattan is easily reachable. There is a great eat-in kitchen and polygon-shaped dining room table; for eating out, there are bars and restaurants with great food across the street, including sushi, Italian and burgers.

Why Kids Love it

This is a great family apartment with plenty of space, toys and a dedicated kids bedroom with a double loft bed. Other kids can stay in this room on the pull out chair bed; there is a further second bedroom which can be made up with a kingsize bed or 2 twins. There is a closet full of toys and board games, including a giant pull-string bag of Legos. There are plenty of parks in the area including nearby Bennett Park with a playground and good spot for throwing ball, frisbee and soccer. Saggio’s Italian restaurant nearby has a Bocce ball court in their backyard.

Things to Know

Minimum stay: 1 week preferred. The residence is on the second floor with an elevator. The owners have a dog who will be away during your stay - although it is very clean, the apartment may not be suitable for those with allergies. The loft bed is best for those aged 6 and above. Car rental not essential but can be useful; parking can be a challenge in the area but there is free on street parking. There is a small courtyard/garden with a side entrance/exit which is faster and preferable for coming and going. The lounge has a flat screen with Apple TV (HBO, Showtime, Hulu, Netflix etc). For babies, the owners have various baby seats, bouncy chairs, bathtub seat, and more.

About the Location

The residence is in the Hudson Heights area of Washington Heights, northern Manhattan, 30 minutes by train from Midtown. There are sweeping views of preserved Palisade Cliffs and the Hudson River as it was hundreds of years ago. Fort Tryon Park, a 10-minute walk away, boasts one of the most beautiful flower gardens in NYC. Little Red Lighthouse Park, with a walkway along the Hudson River and tennis courts, is right down the hill. The A train is a 1-minute walk (2 blocks), an express train stopping at Manhattan’s prime locations including Columbus Circle, Soho and Brooklyn. The 1 train is 5-8 minute walk (6 blocks), also reaching Midtown in 30 minutes. A bus will take you to The Cloisters Museum and Fort Tryon Park in 10 minutes.

Style Notes

This is a 'classic 6 New York City apartment. It has large rooms and many windows, 7 French doors with glass and partial river/cliff views. Classic furniture and bohemian design make it a warm, inviting apartment that visitors say feels more like a house. We love the loft bed in the kids room, offering plenty of space to play below, the fabric wall hangings and the airy, open main living space.

Washington Heights, Manhattan

Gardens, views and the A train

This northern Manhattan community is a little removed from the action but all the better for it. River and cliff views are one-of-a-kind and this is the only place in Manhattan where you can see the area as Native American Indians saw it. Enjoy the space and light, play in Fort Tryon Park, with one of the city’s most beautiful gardens, or take the A train into Manhattan past the city’s prime spots: Central Park, Times Square, Penn Station and Tribeca included.
