Carpets are crunchy. Window has immediate brick wall. Bathroom had damaged ceiling and mold. No light on bathroom mirror (sink was right by the bed). Stained fabric headboard on bed. It was a rough night to say the least.

Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighbourhoods that have
easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural
