The Manhattan Columbus House is one block from Central Park, a fifteen-minute walk from Riverside Park, and a 20-minute walk from Columbia University. It lies within the Manhattan Valley near the Upper West Side. The area is charming, quiet, unassuming, and has more parks (at least four!) within walking distance than any other part of the city.
There are a total of three apartments each with 6 bedrooms, all private with queen-sized beds, high-quality bedding, towels, and each room has a closet. There are three bathrooms in each apartment. The apartments have an open floor plan where the community is fostered — relax on the couch and watch the flat-screen smart TV, equipped with ROKU for prime viewing, dine together at the big table perfectly suited for sharing stories and getting to know your housemates. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, gas ranges, and all are stocked with the essentials — toaster, coffee maker, tea kettle, microwave, pots and pans, cutlery, dishes — everything you need to be set up for a comfortable living.
