My 3rd floor apartment (2nd floor by European count) is bright and charming, if I do say so myself. You have access to the whole apartment, which was entirely renovated in 2015. It is clean with modern furnishings and original hardwood floors and detailing. It's cozy (somewhere around 900 square feet/80 square meters), but not small. There's a main bedroom with a king-sized Italian lacquer bed, which is ideal for a couple or business traveler. The extra room doubles as an office (with high speed, wireless Internet) and a guest bedroom with a twin (39x75 inch) brass bed, Serta mattress and box spring. The kitchen has all new major appliances ... stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher, refrigerator, and some smaller items, such as a toaster oven, Nespresso coffee machine, toaster, blender, etc. (There will almost certainly be some food in the fridg - some half-and-half for coffee, butter, etc.) The living room/TV room is very pleasant with a large, comfortable couch, a 46 inch TV (with FIOS, Netflix, HBO and Showtime) and a wall of books and memorabilia from my extensive travels. The bathroom is very big (by NYC standards) with a stand-up shower/tub. There are pleasant views in all four directions (North, East, South, West) with windows that open and allow a pleasant breeze in Spring and Fall. In Summer, there are three air conditioners: One in the living room, and a second and third AC in each bedroom, as well as some fans. And the hard wood floor (which is the second floor ceiling) has sound proofing.
For longer stays, in the entryway to the house, there is a new washer and dryer on the ground floor. One can wash clothes as needed here in the house. Alternatively, there is also a fine laundry service that is very close. They will wash clothes for you. They charge about $1.20 per pound of clothes to wash, dry and fold them.

All questions are welcome - before, during and after your stay. I can always be reached by phone call, text message or email. Let me make your stay as perfect as possible. I travel a fair amount. If not me, someone will meet you at the door at your convenience to provide keys and give you a familiarization tour. There is a visitor's guide with local eatery and tourism suggestions and "apartment user help". And we're usually a 10 minute walk away to address any more pressing needs.
My apartment is located on a quiet street across from a lovely church and the local Diner on the other side. Out back there is a school, and you can sometimes hear the muted sounds of children playing soccer in the afternoon. There are many local eateries nearby, including delightful places like Cafe Latte, where the owner will charm you in Italian, and Piccola Trattoria, which has sensational food! Use a search engine or Yelp to check out eateries on Cedar Street, which is right around the corner from my apartment. It's just a block away from the main grocery store in Dobbs Ferry for a full range of food supplies. You can easily wander down to the Hudson River, next to the train station, and enjoy the beautiful sunsets. The Aqueduct is another great walking path, a pleasurable jaunt to the neighboring cities of Hastings and Irvington. All-in-all, Dobbs Ferry is a delightful merging of old world charm and modern convenience in a semi-rural setting with frequent deer sitings. It's safe and quaint, as well as being very close to Manhattan by train and also White Plains by car.
Statistically speaking, Dobbs Ferry is a small community of 11,000 people that has only one bank in town (how small is that!) The median household income of Dobbs Ferry residents is about $108,000/year, and 30% of residents have a graduate or professional degree from college.
Bus stops are within a block of the apartment, and the train to Grand Central (Metro North line) is a 15 minute walk (12 mins if you walk fast) from my apartment. Take the train north to Tarrytown, more river towns and hiking areas. Walk to neighboring cities via the Aqueduct. Taxis and Uber are relatively easy to find. Check out a map to see the big range of everything that is within reach.
