Great place to stay
"My wife and I went to NYC to visit our daughter (who lives in Brooklyn) and to see some shows. The apartment is comfortable (air conditioning works very well) and beautiful (especially the view from the balcony). It is also very conveniently located, with Lincoln Center (where we went to two performances) essentially next door. There is a subway station only a 15 minute walk away, so it is very easy to get to Broadway (where we saw two plays). Coming home from Broadway was only a $10 cab ride (not including tip). There is also a grocery store just around the corner that stays open till 10 p.m.
What really made our stay special was how wonderful a host James was. My wife and I have had very good luck with VRBO both in the US and Europe. But, James was, by far, the best host we have encountered. The apartment is very well stocked with coffee, sweeteners, condiments, towels, toiletries, tour books and maps of NYC, and numerous other items that made us feel truly at home. There were even umbrellas, which were very helpful during the deluge we encountered one day.
We are already planning our trip back to NYC next year, and will definitely stay there again. We highly recommend this wonderful place."

"The studio -- and the building -- are quiet, clean, and super-convenient to everything. Subway stop half a block away, and a terrific neighborhood for browsing, shopping, eating, and walking. Miriam is wonderful -- accessible, helpful, and local to handle any questions or issues. Small things really made this place extra enjoyable: the hot water actually gets hot and warms up quickly. The elevator is quick and available. There's a vestibule that you enter off the street, so you're inside -- not standing on the sidewalk or in the weather -- as you're getting out your key and opening the lock to the front door. The little fridge keeps things cold. There are plenty of hangers in the closet. It's easy to find where to put trash/garbage. (None of these are things you can take for granted in a VRBO apartment!) Note that although there are plenty of places to get coffee within half a block or less, if you're someone who needs to make coffee before you leave the apt in the morning, be sure you know how to work a French press --- it's not hard, just different from a drip machine. I loved my stay here -- I'd especially recommend it to someone traveling alone."

"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."
