My husband and I just returned home from a weekend in NYC. We stumbled across Between the Parks Bed and Breakfast and are delighted that we did. For us, it has it all: a perfect location, a delightful hostess, a relaxed atmosphere and an excellent breakfast of fresh fruit, wonderful croissants and bagels, coffee and juice. We walked across Central Park to the Metropolitan Museum of Art one day and to the Frick the next....an easy and lovely walk. We walked down to the opera at Lincoln Center on Saturday, again easy. There is no television in the room but there is a great library filled with classics. The room is small but we never go to New York thinking we will stay in a room. When in the spotless room, we read a bit, turned out the light and slept in anticipation of the next day of all NY has to offer.
