Recent New York City reviews
"We were in NYC during Easter weekend and decided to stay in Brooklyn to discover this city and be close enough to visit sights in Manhattan... We loved the house, the location, the neighborhood, the proximity to the subway and to Manhattan (20 min to Times Square), the restaurants and shops in the area, Prospect Park, etc. We will be staying in Brooklyn again and again for next visits to NYC, and hopefully to this property as well. There's much to see and experience in Brooklyn too! We stayed with our daughters and my parents and the house was perfect in size, location, amenities, supplies, with the garden as a bonus! It's a home away from home for sure! Many thanks and we look forward to meeting again soon!"

"We thoroughly enjoyed our 4 night long weekend at 1871 House in NYC upper east side. The place has style - so much more interesting than another hotel that could be anywhere in the world. And genuine, helpful staff - far preferable to us than more hotel clones.
We stayed in the first floor front room - so just above the street. It wasn't the quietest or darkest room in the world - just regular Manhattan "ambience", and we weren't expecting Montana. Very comfortable beds, good bathroom, comfortable couch, chairs etc - all very well laid-out to make the most of a NY-sized space.
It is an absolutely fantastic location for museums, access to Central Park, and transport options - so the whole city is open to you. The local area is safe, friendly and clean... really nice for wandering around without anything to worry about. The downside of that is that the local restaurants seemed (the ones we found anyway) a little dull - no cutting edge experimentation, no cheap pizza etc ... think more bland a la carte, and over-priced cupcakes. But that's not 1871 House's fault, and the 'nice' local streets really do provide a perfect launch to whatever you want in NYC - just don't expect everything to be as close to your room as one of the world's best city parks and some of the world's best museums. i.e we really did have a very enjoyable stay."

"Location, 1 1/2 bathrooms and a patio. These were the selling points of this apartment for a 5 day trip with my husband and grandson. The location between 2 subway lines, near restaurants, markets and a block from Central Park couldn't be better. The patio was a private refuge after a day of sightseeing or for breakfast. Livia provided a notebook of recommendations for marketing and restaurants.
As mentioned by other reviewers, the 1/2 bath is actually a curtained off area in the master bedroom, so if privacy is an issue for you, the bedroom is unusable while someone is using the bathroom.
If reviewing this apartment on location alone, I would give it an Excellent rating. Because of some wear issues with towels, bedding & pillows and kitchen utensils, I'm giving it just a Good rating."
