"We were a couple plus 25yr old daughter staying in NYC as sight-seers. We were all over Manhattan and this was a good central location. We had handy access to subway. We actually walked up from Penn Station on arrival and it was interesting to walk right thru Times Square to kick off the stay. We walked to Rockefeller Ctr (that's easy) and we even walked to the ESB.
The condo is very well equipped with almost anything you can think of in supplies - even some basic food items - and we left a couple of things behind ourselves. The main bed is comfortable and the addition of the pull-down shade is very helpful (one is needed in the LR for anyone sleeping on the sofa due to the bright and changing billboards. We did get some street noise, but once asleep I don't hear anything much myself. If you want to avoid street noise altogether, look for a higher floor.
Condo was quite clean and I will say again that bathroom and kitchen had anything you could want and more. There are some books on NY in the LR as well. TV has tons of channels in LR (more regular in BR). The building itself is very quiet - never heard a peep from neighbors. The lobby security team are all very friendly and accommodating. You will feel secure in this building.
It's NYC, so we expected some light and noise at night. We were never out too late as we were on the go all day long.
We went to the 8th St food festival, Central Park and Natural History Museum, High-Line Rail area, plus Village and a bit of Chelsea, ESB @ night, The Rock (Tour and Top of), Staten Island Ferry, Brooklyn Bridge (partial), 9/11 Memorial and Museum, Wall St, Bryant Park and NY Library, The Met, and maybe more.
Chantale was always quite responsive before the trip via email or phone. Never needed her in NYC as she had all arrangements made with building security."
