  • Great Location

    "Apartment was in a great location. Close to Central Park, close to restaurants and a 2 block walk to the subway. The neighbourhood felt safe, and it was great for evening strolls. We walked every where. We even walked down to the theatre district, Rockerfeller Plaza and Times Square. It was a bit of a trek to walk that far but the weather was so nice we enjoyed the walking. For those who don't want to walk that far the subway is just down the street. This apartment was the right size for the 2 of us. I think it would be fine for an extra child but 3 adults would feel pretty cramped. The internet worked without a hitch. Photos were accurate and it had all the amenities we needed for our stay Two suggestions: -the bedroom needs some new,real pillows. The pillows were very thin, no support and uncomfortable to sleep on. It was like there were no pillows at all. I advised Tony of the situation while we were there but never heard back from him. -the couch needs a good cleaning and possibly updating. It's a beige couch in a rented apartment; you can see where it is worn and dark from sitting on. It doesn't look clean....which doesn't mean that it isn't."

  • A Wonderful, Spacious Home!

    "In spite of the cold weather, we were greeted by a warmth as soon as we opened the front door. The interior is warm, artistic, and very liveable. There was plenty of living space for our family of 5, as opposed to feeling cramped and claustrophobic in a couple of hotel rooms. I may be spoiled, but I relished the spaciousness we had in this home during our stay! Within close walking distance, there are an assortment of terrific shops, restaurants, and markets. We shopped nearby for the breakfast supplies we enjoyed each morning, and on many evenings walked but a few blocks to dinner, for tapas, pasta, and more. One night for dessert we went to The Chocolate Room, and had spicy hot chocolate, flourless chocolate cake, and a chocolate layer cake; we overdosed on chocolate, but we had great fun! The house is located near subway stations, so it was quick and easy to get to Manhattan, although we also explored Brooklyn a bit, and enjoyed Prospect Park, the Greenlight Bookstore, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, and other places. The listing description and photos were accurate, the property was clean and well-maintained, and the owners were very helpful before, during, and after our stay. I would definitely recommend this property to a friend or relative, although there are steps leading up to and inside of this triplex, which could be an issue for some people. We truly appreciated staying here, and would love to return someday. :)"

  • Highly recommend!

    "I love, love, love the Blue loft in LIC!! My 16-yr-old daughter and I rented it for the month of July while she was attending dance training in the city. Previous summers we have stayed in Manhattan but now feel we have found our home-away-from-home with this gem. More bang for the buck in this true 2-bedroom apartment with a perfect view of the Chrysler building. Even plenty of room for my husband and son to join us the last several nights of our stay! The neighborhood is great with beautiful Gantry Plaza State Park nearby (talk about the best view of the city skyline!) along with a plentiful variety of quaint restaurants and convenient groceries all within walking distance. It felt like an escape from the hustle-bustle yet only a one-minute walk to the subway that goes straight to Grand Central in about 5 minutes. The best of both worlds!"

  • Great find!

    "We stayed here for two weeks in August and were extremely pleased. We wanted to be within walking distance of family nearby and we found the location wonderful. Great neighborhood. Subways nearby to make it easy to go up or downtown, Hudson River Park so close by to walk, picnic or bike, wonderful restaurants everywhere you look, shopping nearby. Great spot. The apt. was as advertised and very clean and John was nice and helpful. Subway vibration didn't bother us at all. Being downstairs off the courtyard eliminated any street noise and the apt was a nice oasis to come home to."

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.
