  • Nice West Village Apartment with some issues

    "First, let me say that the apartment is quite nice. Great location within easy walking distance of nice, winding West Village streets. The pictures are accurate and the apartment is large by West Village standards. But here are 3 things you should know. 1. The apartment has a smell of gas. It's not strong, but it did cause my wife and me some concern. We tracked it down and found that it was coming from a large gas stove in the kitchen. When we contacted Chris about it, he responded that it's an old stove with a lot of pilot lights, not to worry and to crack a window. 2. I've stayed in NYC often and of course the city is noisy, but I must say that this apartment has more siren noise than I've ever heard before. I attribute it to the hospital that is just down the block. 3. When we arrived, Chris was in the apartment [rather than leaving the keys with the doorman as agreed] and was unprepared for our arrival. He was very nice about it when we explained that, yes, we had rented the apartment for the weekend. He ran around and cleaned, offered us wine, etc. But still ... I'll just chalk it up to a mixup in his calendar since I haven't seen others post about this problem. So those are the issues. If none is a concern to you and you want a spacious apartment in the West Village, rent this one."

  • Great Apartment in Chelsea

    "Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 kids aged 5 and 12) stayed 9 nights in this apartment and were very comfortably accommodated. The location was excellent, very close to the 1, 2, 3 (150 metres) and F, M (300 metres) subway lines, with loads of places to eat in or grab a quick takeout, grocery stores etc all very handy. Fantastic Pizza can be picked up either on 6th ave or 7th ave, both less than 10 minutes walk from the front door. Great communication from the property manager, and the very friendly owner arrived just as we were about to leave. The apartment itself was quite large, with all the necessities for a totally self sufficient stay - fully equipped kitchen, huge fridge and even includes a clothes washer / dryer - a definite bonus for a travelling family. Everything was in good to excellent condition, and although we had heard the noise of New York was going to be inescapable, we found this apartment to be very quiet - definitely no background noise could be heard in the bedroom that would keep you awake. Would definitely recommend this apartment for couples and families of up to 4. It is up 2 flights of quite steep stairs, but this was only a shock the first time - once your luggage is up it is not an issue."

  • Amazing time

    "This apartment was everything we were looking for - the apartment is normal sized (for NYC) and has a private bedroom with a living/dining area (and kitchen). Traveling from a home, this offered what we needed (full kitchen, private bedroom, nice size bathroom, privacy, and especially quiet). Close to the subway as well (we only used it twice). The rental process was very straightforward - all fees and procedures were thoroughly explained before we decided to rent the apartment. Apartment does not supply toiletries and toilet paper - there was a grocery store right around the corner we used for items we needed (food also to cook). Everyone was very accessible and answered all questions in a timely manner. Unbelievable alternative and saved me a lot of money. I am 100% returning - thank you so much!"

  • Long weekend in the city

    "My husband and I travel to NYC often and were tired of staying in hotels. I'm so glad we decided to stay here. Sofia's apartment is beautiful and spotless. Plenty of room for the two of us. The bed was comfy, as was the chaise for reading. No outside noise -- not even from the neighbors. Everything was as advertised, and we hope to stay there again. Great neighborhood (try the homemade noodle place on East Broadway!) and a short walk to the subway. Sofia is great (as is her sister). Highly recommend."

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.
