Perfect for a Manhattan visit- Nice rooms, friendly atmosphere, close to everything. Central Park just 2-3 blocks away. Walking distance to Empire State Building and other famous landmarks. Lots of shopping possibilities nearby. Bloomingdales 3 blocks from 1871 House. When we return we will no doubt stay at the 1872 House

Delightful accommodations for people who love old architecture. The staff was pleasant and helpful. Great location near everything! We definitely plan to return and have already recommended the 1871 House to family and friends who plan to visit NYC.

The owners of 1871 House have created such a lovely respite away from the city and the cares of the world! I have previously stayed here and just stayed for nearly a month and felt so lucky that this haven could serve as my home base in New York. It is like staying in someone's beautiful country home and you...

Thank you. It means so much to us that you felt like you could get away from the city while still in the city. That's precisely what we've been striving for, and when it lands with our guests, that's what makes it all worth while for us :) You were an absolute DELIGHT to have this past month, all of...

We had an amazing time in NYC in part because of the tremendous location and hospitality of the 1871 House. We don't visit NY often and had some concerns about the safety of the area, parking, and other guests of the hotel. The area was very safe. We were not at all worried about allowing our teenagers to come and...

We had the Parlor Room up one flight of stairs. The room itself was good and quite spacious, with comfortable bed, wardrobe, bath, shower and sofa. The window overlooks the street but it is quite a quiet street and we were not bothered by noise. We arrived after hours and instructions for entry were very good. Staff were helpful and...

We planned a last minute trip to NYC with our 20-yr-old daughter, and I was pleasantly surprised that there was a suite available when I called only about ten days before our stay. Years ago, I stayed at the 1871 House with some girlfriends, and it was a great place for us then, so it came to mind first thing...

We enjoyed staying at the 1871 house. The room was clean, roomy, comfortable, and well furnished in a way that gave the room character. The owner warned that the bathroom was older and small, so we were ready for that. The location is terrific. But it's not so convenient to stay here. Check in/out times are limited. Short stays must...

The 1871 House is my favorite "hotel" in New York. I put hotel in quotes because it's not a hotel really. It's a cozy B&B and it feels like you're staying in an elegant 19th century townhouse. And that's because you are! It's just a wonderful find. It has an authentic "classic New York" feel. At times I like a...

Picked this spot on line holding my breath. Daughter was running in NYC Marathon and we needed a quiet place [if that is possible in NYC] for four people. This restored 19th Century Building is a delight with unique features that put you into another era. Features are not modern but delightful and street noise is an issue as insulation...

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
