East 72nd Street Upper East Side
In the Air
Away from the bustle of the city, the quiet Upper East Side can feel 10,000 feet above it all. Let this apartment be your passport to the city. You won’t have to travel far to see the exotic, as this neighbourhood is home to New York’s finest museums, and the restaurants will take your taste buds to new heights. Take a stroll through the park after a long day in the city, and enjoy a smooth landing back at this gorgeous pad. The international décor is sure to place you in the upright position and the views will make your spirits soar.
When You’re a Jet
Your host is the definition of first-class, a true globetrotter with a background in finance.
Cabin, No Pressure
This apartment is at cruising altitude, and if you take a glance out of the window to your left, you’ll see a stunning view of the rest of the island of Manhattan, laid out below you. The living room is 747-sized, and has a slightly mod feel to it that will have you recall the famous Mad Men-era TWA terminal at JFK. The kitchen is gleaming white and attends to your every need, with plenty of overhead storage containers.
Most rooms feature books that attest to our hosts’ love of international travel, and the cosy dining room is no exception. The nearby study is perfect for writing in your journal. Consider the day in this quiet cockpit. Then head to the bedroom and rest your head on the cloudlike pillows, feeling duty-free as you drift into sleep.
The Beef or the Chicken?
You’ve plenty of food and beverage options up here. Try the Carlyle for a ritzy cocktail, then dive-bomb over to J.G. Melons for a world-famous hamburger. The 6 train is near, which means the rest of the city is too. Secure your tray table and buckle up for a wild ride.
