Recent New York City reviews

  • This place was perfect!

    "Two couples went to play tourist in the big city. The couple from Long Beach, CA, had stayed her before, (which is how we found out about this house), and the two of us from Seattle, WA, (I have been to NYC and area many times, and my friend who had never been there). We met up at JFK, taxied in, and spent seven days running around NYC, Brooklyn, even out to the Cradle of Aviation Museum in some little town, a train ride away, and of coarse LI City itself. Great neighborhood, lots of different restaurants, easy access to subway into the city, and the house itself was perfect. I will try to use this same place next visit to the city."

  • Perfect Location * Clean * Live Like a Local

    "Perfect Location / Easy access: We left our car on Long Island, took a train to the Port Authority and walked the few blocks to this apartment. 24 hour front desk, studio apartment clean and included all amenities noted. Restaurant Recommendation: Friendly residents, one of whom recommended "Mercato" (Southern Italian) - 352 W 39th & 9th Ave for dinner. Intimate and welcoming. Excellent food and wine list including Duecorti Barolo 2008 by the glass. If you're interested in buying fabric "Mood" is a 2 block walk (you're in the garment district). If you want to see "Betrayal" or "The Snow Geese" on Broadway, an 8 minute walk. Walk the High Line. Short walk to Chelsea Market. 2 subways stops to Union Square Holiday Market. A short walk to Grand Central Station to view Guastavino's tiles and arches. Enjoy lunch at the Oyster Bar (ask for the sandwich menu for the PoBoy). Food shopping - we recommend Trader Joe's (W 72nd Street) - short subway trip. Katz's wins our vote for the best Matzoh Ball Soup and Russ and Daughters have the best white fish salad. We lived like a local for a week and loved it. We live in the city in DC so we're accustomed to cars/buses/trucks honking their horns. Might be an issue for some (the apt is located at the entrance to the Lincoln Tunnel)."

  • Perfect place to stay in NYC!

    "Spectacular view, great location, immaculate, well stocked and comfortable. Need I say more? If you are looking for a home base when you are in New York city, this is the ideal place. James, the owner was wonderful to deal with. The unit itself is in a secure building with doorman and concierge. Not the newest or fanciest building you can find, but well maintained, friendly and convenient to Lincoln Square, Central Park, broadway shows and museums. All the comforts of home are provided in the apartment and there's a convenient grocery store less than a block away. This is the real deal if you want to experience NYC like a local. The view is worth a million and will stay with you long after you leave. Can't wait to go back!"

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.
