They are all left empty for you, hotel-style. It comfortably sleeps two. There is a European washer/dryer in the unit. it takes seven hours to wash to a towel. Please don't use it, it's trouble. Rather, if you come for longer stays, we will give you a credit to use the fluff and fold directly around the corner from the flat. Same or next day service, washed, fluffed and folded. They pick up and deliver. Location, location, location. It is in the middle of the nicest blocks of Chelsea, which buffers you from NYC noise, and the back bedroom has a view of green space, and, at night a subtle glimmer of city lights. There are custom plantation shutter window treatments, which can be closed to serve as blackout screens. The bedroom is particularly quiet. The second floor living room is high enough off the street for privacy, but affords a nice view or people watching, if you're so inclined. The apartment building is a highly sought after, turn-of-the-century brownstones, which requires an easy walk up one flight of stairs. The layout of the apartment is "railway "style, which means there is a sofa in the front of the apartment, separated by a long galley kitchen and bathroom, separated by a bedroom which closes with the door, a queen bed with memory foam mattress, ample new towels and linens. the apartment could comfortably accommodate two people who do not sleep together, at either ends of the apartment. Both rooms have flat screen TV and cable boxes. We are both art collectors, and the place will likely have a rotating art collection. There will always be interesting art. This is a rare find: a floor-through apartment in a brownstone. It has been updated, and continues to be improved, no expenses spared. There will be ample linens, fluffy towels, pillows. We donate used products to charity, update amenities constantly. The apartment has old world charm, architectural detail windows, an exposed brick wall runs throughout the apartment, and there is a built-in working fireplace. Full sized refrigerator stocked with complimentary, locally-sourced beverages and snacks. The bedroom contains an alcove nook for reading or relaxing, which overlooks green space. The building has eight units and is private, as are the residents. No one will likely notice you or talk to you. We are meticulous in holding ourselves to the highest standard possible for both hospitality and the quality of your accommodations. We prefer to host one person, or a couple. If you are a couple traveling with a friend, we are open to that possibility. A THIRD GUEST REQUIRES OWNER’S PRIOR PERMISSION, WHICH IS RARELY GRANTED. We are a quiet building and do not host “groups” in this one bedroom apartment. When I am in town, I sleep on the sofa in the front room. It is incredibly comfortable 7 feet long, soft Italian leather and more comfortable than any sofa steeper. To be clear, this is a long, lush sofa which comfortably sleeps one person, it is not a (typically less comfortable) pull out bed. I mention this in the event of two guests, who wish to sleep in separate quarters, including couples! The front door to the building, is a single key that cannot be duplicated, please don't lose it. If there are two if you, you will each have a key. This is not a hotel, it is a personalized experience to suit the needs of are guest-you! This is a great neighborhood. It is surrounded by hundreds of restaurants within walking distance of the meatpacking district, the Highline park, the Chelsea market, Eataly and Greenwich Village. It is in the midst of the art gallery scene in West Chelsea. The flatiron district and the East Village are both walkable, as are Madison Square Park, Union Square and the Empire State Building. It is also walking distance, or a very quick subway ride to the theater district. Or downtown. Fifth Avenue shopping is a stroll away. This is one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city, both because it's easy proximity to everything, and it's aesthetic appeal. While this is a bustling neighborhood, 24/7, it isi a very quiet building. If you are here on business, it is the perfect place to stay. Much more comfortable than a hotel, no racket in the hallway or in the lobby. Better amenities, with three or four times the space. And a full-size refrigerator, stove and oven, in the event you wish to stay in and cook or stock up on local eats and beverages from your immediate area. If you have any special requests for particular foods or beverages upon your arrival, you need only ask. Your two blocks in either direction from all major subway lines. Additionally, there is a crosstown bus on 23rd St, which will take you to the art galleries and the Highline at Tenth Ave (2 blocks!) going West. Going east, you will pass Fifth Ave (the Flatiron building) Madison Ave, (shopping, Gramercy Park) Third Through first Avenues, the Avenue A, B, C, and D (the East village, Alphabet City). You can walk to Times Square, or take the subway from 23rd street, two blocks from where you live, and two stations heading uptown. There are subways on 23rd at 7th and 8th avenues, going uptown, downtown, out of town, anywhere you want to go. If you are arriving by train or wish to take a side trip to, say, Boston, Penn Staion is 13 blocks away. at 34th. (Btw 7th and 8th.) From there, you can go most anywhere. We have had this place for over ten years. Lived here full time at first, two of us, then visited with diminishing frequency, for eight years. Our friends love it, someone always wanted to stay here-and often did. We have others places for friends to visit. We love hosting. We are constantly making improvements and upgrades to the place, to maximize our guests' experience. We are good neighbors and we host even better guests. We have been delighted and privileged to meet great people, and sometimes, new friends, randomly, through hosting. Noise note: please avoid talking in the hallways-that is the only place where neighbors can hear you. The entire apartment, wi-fi, landline, all food and beverages in the house-likely left specifically for you, a variety of coffee, teas, breakfast foods, occasional surprise treats, luxuries linens, towels, comforters..and a large array of them. We can likely store your luggage if you are arriving prior to check-in or leaving after checkout. Please organize this with someone on the real estate team. The apartment is on one of the two physically beautiful blocks in Chelsea: 21st and 22nd, west of Seventh Avenue. This has become one of the trendiest and toniest parts of town. It's still maintains its neighborhood feel, it is not overwhelmingly crowded like Soho or Time Square, any place in the theater district. There are dozens and dozens, within blocks, of dining options. There is a nearby whole foods an even closest supermarket, and several boutique emporium take out preprepared food, suitable for vegans for you lactose intolerant every healthy food imaginable. You were walking distance from so many fantastic tourist attractions, not all touristy, that you could easily remain in the neighborhood, or never take public transportation, and be entertained for a month. You will be blocks from The Highline Park, which is a huge, must-see public space built on top of elevated railway tracks, long in disuse. You are bordered by the West Village, Gramacy Sq., Park, the Flatiron building, the Empire State building, The original shake shack in Madison Sq., Park, Chelsea market, which is a must see, the meatpacking district, too many fine dining establishment to name, as well as local bodegas that have been there for decades. We have our favorite restaurants, a French bistro, Fine dining (the red cat!) a Sicilian bar and eatery (Eolo bar and restaurant) check you later sushi, which is kind of a scene at Momoya, a block form your place. All exceptional. If you walk east to Fifth Avenue, you'll be at the flat iron building, there was also a huge Italian market, that is not well known, like Chelsea market. In that neighborhood, 26th and Broadway, there are several live music venues and there'll come a day venues on 23rd St. everything is footsteps away, literally. Art lovers: Walk directly west of your apartment to block the 10th Ave. and you will be smack in the heart of West Chelsea, the art gallery district. We have prepared a manual that has recommendations for places to see both outside and inside the neighborhood. There are several 24/7 eateries in the neighborhood. This is an exclusive, meaning sought after, location. Some hotels, near Penn station, crow about that location. That would be the opposite of an awesome location. (One of us grew up across the street from Penn Station.) It's Industrial and grim, lots of fast food eateries, constant transients, and business foot traffic. If you're going to the theater from Chelsea, the subway will to get you there in two stops and 10 minutes, probably faster than a taxi. There are subway stations located at 23rd and seventh and 23rd and eighth. Between those two of those options, the subway will take your most everywhere. If the weather permits, and it's of interest, take one of those double-decker guided tour bus tours. They're really fun. There is also a bus that runs both east and west on 23rd St., stops at every block. Or, in warmer weather, a Citcle Line tour by boat on the Hudson. If you're driving, parking is difficult on the street. There are several for pay places to park nearby. They are not cheap. If you are arriving from LaGuardia Airport, take a taxi. Don't torture yourself. There is public transportation, the MTA, will literally take you come up with one subway fare to 106 street, where you can take the subway down to 23rd St. and be two blocks from the house. With luggage, its for those on a tight budget. Both JFK and Newark airports have your trains which will take it to the subway, you will have to change trains at some point, Newark is easier to get into the city, will take you to Penn station. (34th between seventh and eighth.)You can either take yet another subway, with your luggage, or a taxi 11 blocks south to your apartment. JFK has an air train, you could change either at Jamaica station and take the Long Island Railroad into the city again pen station. It is also possible to take the air train from JFK directly to the subway, which will take you to 23rd St. It is a long and arduous journey. Obviously, this is just in before overview of everything. Whatever is your interest, we're glad to do you in that direction. Assist you in anyway we can. These are specific directions designed for first time visitors, or people who are directionally challenged. It hard to get lost in this neighborhood, the blocks are consecutively numbered. The West Village aka Greenwich Village (the nicer part) is a 10 minute walk to the south. "South" means the numbers get smaller: 19, 18, 17. Then some streets have names. Ditto for Meatpacking District, aka cobblestone streets, aka "where sex and the City was filmed. That south, and even closer. Some streets have names there, too.

Chelsea! The good blocks. It's next to the West Village, west Chelsea art galleries and the High Line park, fifth avenue and the Flatiron building, chock-a-block with hundreds of cafes, eateries, bodegas, fine dining, esoteric museums, aspiring models, hipster juice (or jazz) bars, while still maintaing a breezy neighborhood feel. Open 24/7, every corner, a market, Every trendy imaginable thing, and more iterations of it that you dreamed possible: Chelsea. For a more exhaustive discussion of the neighborhood, please see the 27 paragraph long description of "the space," above or the house manual. Quiet! (For New York City) Despite extremely close proximity to everything described, your brownstone is in the middle of a leafy-tree lined residential neighborhood. There is minimal foot traffic. Compare this with staying any where near 34th Street (Penn Station) or near Times Square, where the sidewalks are teaming with people, packed like sardines in a tin, but in motion, nonstop. Fun to visit-then return to your close and quiet luxe digs.

  • Andre met me at midnite and was very helpful and welcoming. I could not have felt more safe and comfortable. He explained everything. The space is very lovely and warm and charming. It was very clean, which is a must for me. A quiet (Website hidden by Airbnb) noise at all except for a few steps from the upstairs apt, but not at all a problem. I loved it all. I will definitely return to this rental.

  • Nice apartment in line with description, living room on pictures more romantic than in reality. Seating for eating in somewhat Spartan. Bedroom en beds perfect. Bathroom and kitchen in good order. Positive is the availablility of some foods (coffee, tea, etc) and toiletries. Andre being the perfect host. Location very nice and central. All in all good price quality relation.

  • As it was our second visit it was the peefect apartment to experience life in NY. The brownstone is well located and appointed and extremely comfortable. Rod was very welcoming and was a wealth of knowledge and insights to getting the best out of our visit. Thanks Rod and Rob.

  • Paddington and Bill's place is the perfect NYC location for walkable exploration and cozy nights. Their concierge system is an excellent solution for travelers and those new to the city. Everything went smoothly. If the best Airbnb listing page hasn't convinced you, read it again because it's unbelievably all true! We had a great time and could not have asked for a better experience staying at P&Bs. It's the unicorn of choices.
