The Front Library

BED SIZE(S):1 queen-size & 1 twin-size trundle bed
ROOM SIZE: 345 sq. ft.

For your extended stay in Manhattan, NYC, make yourself at home in the Front Library, a cozy and inviting luxury bedroom suite at 1871 House near Midtown. The street-view side of the second floor makes up the Front Library, a simple but spacious suite whose oversized north-facing windows give a terrific midlevel portrait of the townhouse’s neighbors. An original marble fireplace mantle, parquet floors, and a 10-foot ceiling form the backdrop for this wonderfully decorated, approximately 345 square foot suite.

A comfortable Ralph Lauren leather settee sits at the foot of a carved wood queen-size bed with rolling-pin headboard, both of which give way to a small marble bistro table and bamboo bistro chairs. Two more marble-topped items – a Victorian washstand and Victorian dresser – complete the suite’s primary furnishings. The prints of 18th and 19th century ante-rooms and throne-rooms along the north wall remind one of the kind of luxury that the Front Library itself hearkens back to and perhaps makes it apparent why Country Living Magazine chose to photograph the Front Library for their “Inn of the Month” feature.

Please note that there is no kitchen or access to a kitchen in the Front Library Suite unless booked in combination with the Rear Library. Provided in the room is a small refrigerator and one electric kettle. The vintage bathroom is a narrow space composed of a tiled tub/shower, pedestal sink and toilet.

Things to note: The Front Library can be booked together with the Rear Library and the two rooms connect to each other via a connecting interior door and hallway through the kitchen. A/C available June-October. Room includes Panasonic 26″ 720p LCD HDTV with ROKU attachment for streaming your favorite shows or movies on Netflix, Amazon or other available apps. Fireplace is decorative only. Pets and smoking are not permitted. The house is not serviced by an elevator. All suites are accessed via the house’s common staircase.
