Manhattan, New York
Additional Location Information
The Natural History Museum Suite is located on a great block right in the middle of New York City, just two blocks away from world famous Central Park and the Museum of Natural History – one of New York’s most famous landmarks. The Museum of Natural History is easily recognisable from the movie with Ben Stiller “Night in the Museum” – that’s where it takes place. It is the most interesting and interactive museum in New York, but make sure to take the whole day to see the exhibits – you will be so excited, you won’t notice the day go by! This museum is huge with halls that can interest anyone as well as special exhibitions and a planetarium. It also has world’s largest dinosaur – an absolute must-see!
Central Park is a large park in the middle of New York – absolutely amazing! There are so many things to do there, you might as well not leave the area at all. Especially if you have kids – this area is definitely best for you! Couple things that everyone loves to do in Central Park – picnicking, ice skating (in winter), visiting the Zoo (the entrance is on 64th Street on the East Side), jogging and just enjoying the nature. There are also tons of excursions in Central Park, some featuring those landmarks in the park where famous movies were filmed. The movies include “Serendipity”, “Ghostbusters”, “Enchanted”, “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” and “Home Alone 2”. You can also rent bicycles at Columbus Circle and just ride around the park on your own and enjoy the nature!
The apartment is located between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway. Broadway is an amazing street with seating areas, green zones and lots of entertainment! Right around your apartment on Broadway you will find clothing stores, banks and specialty stores.
There is a New York Sports Club gym right next to your apartment on Broadway between 79th and 80th Street. Sovereign Bank is between 81st and 82nd streets. Liquor store and Starbucks are between 80th and 81st Streets. On the corner on 80th and Broadway you will find one of the most unique grocery stores in the city – Zabar’s. A lot of New Yorkers go there to make a basket of fresh artisanal breads and cheeses and head out to Central Park for picnic. There are all sorts of food there for your every day needs as well as specialty cheeses, meats and breads – all extremely delicious and most made on site!
The apartment is located on a quiet and peaceful block – how it works in this area is that streets are quiet, but avenues are bustling. So you have everything happening around you without the noise of bars and traffic like it is in Midtown or Downtown Manhattan. Staying in this apartment will give you a truly New York experience. Columbus Circle which is beautiful at night is about 20 minute walk away, it is also where the largest Marathon in the US – the New York Marathon has its finish line. If you want to get to Midtown to visit Times Square or Empire State Building, you can choose from three trains to take you there – 1 train on 79th and Broadway (right next to you apartment) or B and C trains next to Museum of Natural History. You will be at Times Square in about 10 minutes. Beautiful Lincoln Center is also just a 15 minute walk away – that is where world-famous Metropolitan Opera and American Ballet performances take place. Make sure to visit!
There are tons of different restaurants and bars around the apartment, mostly on Amsterdam Avenue – Chinese, Indian, Italian, Mexican, South African, Japanese – are only a few of the cuisines available within a 3 minute walk from the apartment. You will be amazed by how many New Yorkers love to sit at the tables outside these restaurants after a day at work. The restaurants and bars on Amsterdam Avenue include an Irish pub, the Amsterdam Diner, Jyn Myll, Brother Jimmy’s BBQ, Mc Aleen’s pub on the cheaper end and The Tangled Vine (wine restarant), Tolani (wine restaurant with fusion cuisine – their Malva pudding and peri-peri prawns are an absolute must to try!), Haru Sushi, Jake’s Dilemma, Thai Nam, Sarabeth’s, Monaco – on the more upscale end and more appropriate for dinner - just to name a few within 3 minutes walk from the apartment. On Amsterdam Avenue between 79th and 80th are also located Al Dente (Italian restaurant), Saravanaa (Indian Vegetarian), next door to it Sugavat (Indian, non-vegetarian), across from it Savann with $16.95 prix fix lunches and Bettola. You also have some fast food restaurants that have pizza, burritos , sandwiches and burgers – so everyone gets what they like according to their taste and you won’t stay hungry for sure!
There is another gym – Equinox – on 77th Street and Amsterdam Avenue. On the corner of 79th Street and Amsterdam Avenue (right on your block) one can find a Duane Reade pharmacy (a store from the biggest pharmacy chain in the city of New York) where you can buy pretty much anything that you might need (including food). All the pharmacies in the US sell a lot of different foods, cosmetics, household supplies. Usually pharmacies are like miniature supermarkets with a prescription counter. There are also two Laundromats on 80th Street between Amsterdam Avenue and Broadway.
The Port Authority bus terminal is a 10 minute subway ride from the apartment – you can catch a bus from the airport right there at any time. You will probably prefer to catch one of New York’s inexpensive yellow cabs from the bus terminal to the apartment if you have a lot of bags. The ride should cost you about $10-15 depending on traffic. So basically, you do not need a metro card when staying at this location – just walk, enjoy the weather, views and shopping.
The apartment is conveniently located by several different subway lines – 1, B, C – all going to different places in the city, so you will have the easiest commute from there to anywhere! You can enter the subway at 79th Street and Amsterdam Avenue (for 1 train), or at 81st Street and Central Park West (for B, C trains).
