  • Sister/Sister Birthday Weekend on a budget

    "My sister and I wanted to plan our first trip to NYC to celebrate her 30th. We wanted to spend more money on the experience rather than accommodations. This was an excellent find. We took the subway into the city each day, and we came back home late at night (even after 2am). As two young women, we never felt unsafe walking to and from the apartment. The apartment is well kept and spacious. Leon is easy to work with. It is a great place to rest your head each day."

  • Perfect location!

    "The apt is in the middle of Manhattan in a very nice building with very kind and nice personell. A fantastic view of the Empire wish you goodnight and gives you the goodmorning. The apt is perfect for 2 people and good for 4 if they are young. Only reason to not give 5 stars is that the restroom should be repaired in something, but everything is working. We spent a fantastic holyday, and for sure we will choose this apt the next time we come!!!"

  • You could ask nothing better!!

    "I highly recommend this property. You will experience the best location and the best hospitality!! Fortunately, I had a chance to meet landlord family on my business trip to NYC before my Christmas holidays that I was planned to take my family. The family were very kind, not only show the property but guided me their neighborhood until late evening. Before I rent the property, we became just like an old friend through exchanging of emails with topics of our families. For your information, 1) Location: Perfect!! Just 5 minutes walk from Columbus station which is a hub of subway access everywhere you want to go. They have pharmacy and glossary stores in the next block, wonderful food market in the Time Warner building as well. So many restaurants hesitate to choose. The Lincoln Center located nest block, we enjoyed New York Philharmonic year-end concert just walked few minutes! 2) Property: High rise apartment with 24 hours doorman and concierge, clean, well furnished and you may find their hospitality everywhere such as sophisticated amenities and welcome drinks and snacks with warm letter. In conclusion, you can hardly ask for more than this for your great stay in NYC!! 日本から行かれる方は特にニューヨークのバケーション・レンタルのオーナーの対応に不安を感じるかも知れません。実際私も当初申し込んだところが急にキャンセルされることを経験しました。こちらのオーナーは本当に信用できる方です。個人のプライバシーもあるので詳細は書けませんが、ご主人は大手金融機関にお勤めの非常に暖かい家族の皆さまです。また、奥さんも非常に気の回る方です。次回は東京に来ようというメールを頂いていますので、それもひとつの楽しみとなりそうです。"

  • Lived like a local!

    "We enjoyed staying at Joe and Vera's over Easter weekend.....never stayed in a neighborhood before and we really enjoyed it. Walked to the small market close by as well as several neighborhood restaurants. Subway was close by that made it very easy to get anywhere we wanted to go. Apartment was a 2 story walkup and was located on a beautiful street."

Manhattan Travel Tips

Known as the cultural and economic hub of the United States, Manhattan is one of the five boroughs that make up New York City. Even though it’s the smallest of the five, it’s personality and "never sleep" attitude has made it one of the most iconic and cosmopolitan locales on earth.

Manhattan is full of history, culture, excitement and thrilling experiences. It’s the home of famous landmarks and economic staples. From the United Nations to the Chrysler Building, Wall Street, the New York Stock Exchange and the glittering lights of Broadway, there is more than enough to satisfy every traveler who visits the island no matter what their interests are.

Whether you hail a taxi, take to sidewalk or hop on the city's famous subway, days can be filled with perusing through different shops, dining at the finest restaurants and seeing some of the best theater in the country.

Areas of Manhattan to Explore

Broadway: This neon-tinged boulevard is best known for its portion that houses block after block of venues in the theater district. It’s the oldest north-south thoroughfare in New York City. The theater district, also known as the Great White Way, is home to several Broadway theater that produce large-scale musicals and plays that attract theater goers from all around the world.The bar is set very high in Manhattan when it comes to the stage, so even if you venture to an off-Broadway production, no doubt you will be impressed.

Central Park: When you think of Manhattan, chances are images of Central Park come to mind. This massive green space has been at the heart of the Big Apple since the mid-19th century. In 1962, Central Park was designated a National Historic Landmark. It’s the perfect place to experience nature and get some fresh air away from the skyscrapers. You can wander through here on an afternoon stroll, enjoy a picnic, take a carriage ride or play a pick-up game of baseball. Children will enjoy a ride on the carousel or playing at one of the 21 playgrounds in Central Park.

Rockefeller Center: In the winter, Rockefeller Center features the country’s most famous Christmas tree under which people can enjoy ice skating around the rink or sip hot chocolate. It’s also the home of Radio City Musical Hall and the popular Rockettes, who perform a Christmas spectacular as well as other shows year-round.

Greenwich Village: For all things offbeat, there is no better spot in Manhattan than Greenwich Village. Once home to beatniks and hippies in the 1960s, this neighborhood hasn't lost its alternative edge over the years. Pop into an Irish pub, live music venue or dive bar, grab a slice of authentic New York pizza or enjoy one of the best collections of ethnic cuisine in the country.{I added this to include more of the island geographically}

Times Square: Also in Midtown you’ll find Times Square, a major commercial intersection at Broadway and 7th Avenue stretching from West 42nd to West 47th streets. Known as the “Crossroads of the World,’ Times Square is situated near the theater district and has some of the busiest pedestrian traffic in the country. If you’re in the city on New Year’s Eve, there’s no more famous place to watch the ball drop than Times Square itself.

Famous Landmarks to See in Manhattan

Empire State Building: Standing 102 stories tall in Midtown, the Empire State Building is hard to miss, and has become one of the cultural symbols of New York as well as the United States. It’s considered a structural marvel designed in the Art Deco style and is one of the seven wonders of the modern world, according to the American Society of Civil Engineers. Visitors can take in panoramic views of Manhattan from the 86th or the 102nd floor observation decks. The breathtaking urban vistas here are considered to be very romantic and created the setting for many famous love scenes in movies like "An Affair to Remember" and "Sleepless in Seattle."

Statue of Liberty: The ultimate symbol of freedom and America, no trip to Manhattan is complete without a visit to the State of Liberty. It was designed by Frederic Auguste Bartholdi and given to the United States as a gift from France. Lady Liberty captured the spirit of American progress, as she welcomed immigrants and visitors to the United States through Ellis Island during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Visitors enter through the statue’s base and can climb the stairs to the crown to take in the views of the Manhattan skyline.

Central Park Zoo: For an activity the whole family can love, visit the Central Park Zoo. This wild attraction is the perfect place to witness some of your favorite creatures up close and personal. The main exhibit areas range from polar to temperate to tropic. You can experience a rainforest with fruit bats and anteaters, the penguin house, the polar bear pool and an ant colony. There’s also a children’s zoo for younger kids to enjoy.
