Property description

We used to live in Manhattan, and now we make Union City our home. Why? Larger apartments, as fast or faster to get into the city (faster than traveling on the express train from Harlem), and a great neighborhood vibe. It doesn't matter the time of day or night, you can walk the streets without looking over your shoulder.

We hope that you'll come stay with us and discover for yourself how crazy it is to be in a different state, but yet so close that it takes you only 15 minutes to get into Times Square.

If you're looking for a place that can accommodate your family or your group of friends, you've found it. LGBT welcome.

Our Place:

This is a light-filled 3 bedroom 3 bathroom 1600 sq feet apartment in Union City, NJ. It is 15 min bus ride to Midtown near Times Square via the Lincoln Tunnel. As surprising as it may seem, this place is closer to Manhattan than other places located in Upper Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens or the Bronx.

Our apartment is a few blocks away the bus station which is serviced 24/7 to Port Authority Bus terminal in Manhattan, right next to Times Square (Read further down for more details about transportation). From Times Square you are very accessible to Chelsea, the Meatpacking District, the Upper East/West Side, Lincoln Center, Central Park, etc.

This spacious private flat is comfortable and quiet - it has a three bedrooms.

Room 1 - Queen size bed, dresser drawer, 2 large closets, bedside lamps and a reading chair. Private bathroom with toilet, sink, tub and shower. Private small fire escape space to sit (if you want to have a cigarette or take a breath of air).

Room 2 - Large windows, queen size bed, two chairs, side table, reading lights, dresser drawer and large closet. Room to put a single air mattress on the floor if needed.

Room 3 - Two single beds, dresser drawer, large closet, reading lights.

Living room has a fold down sofa for extra sleeping options.

Family room/dining room has a laptop computer for guest use, a fold down futon, and a dining room table that seats 10.

We provide fresh bed linens and towels, and we are happy to provide maid service on request.

You'll have two full bathrooms and one powder room. No waiting for the bathroom!

Large eat-in kitchen with gas stove/oven, dishwasher, large capacity fridge/freezer and plenty of storage space.

You don't have to bring bed linens, towels or a hair dryer, we will provide you with fluffy clean towels and all you need to feel comfortable and at home!

The house is equipped with central heat and air conditioning. High speed wireless internet, and other convenient things like iron, city guides, maps, etc. are provided.

Feel free to message me if you need any further details.

This private flat has beds for six people, and two fold down sofas.

* Minimum stay 3 nights

Owner info

About the owner: My husband and I moved here from Canada 11 years ago. We have been lucky enough to travel extensively and we know how important it is to find a comfortable place to stay. We will do whatever we can to make sure that you have a great experience.

Why the Owner Chose Other Manhattan Properties:
We love the wide open living room/dining room, and the shiny wood floors in here. It's also great that it's on the main level, so not a hassle to go up and down stairs.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
The best part about this big apartment is how easy it is to get in/out of NYC, no matter what time of the day or night. Our special local buses run 24/7, every day of the year, every 5 minutes. You won't find any schedules for this service online, they don't need schedules beyond 'always running'.
