  • A HOME AWAY FROM HOME

    "Thank you to Fabian for an amazing apartment on the Upper East Side! As a young female in her 20's, travelling alone all the way from Australia - it was important to find a safe, secure and suitable oasis to call home for the 3 month duration of my trip! This UES apartment became my "home away from home" - accommodating all my necessities both inside the apartment, and in its surrounds. With absolute convenience in every aspect - the apartment is positioned at the back of the building providing more peace and quiet. There is a fully equipped quaint kitchen, with grocery shops only a few blocks away. Situated close to Central Park and the East River, it was surprisingly easy to exercise in the city without checking into a gym - I enjoyed walking around the Central Park Reservoir or along the FDR drive looking out over the East River. Building also includes washing machine and dryer located in the basement as well as an elevator (for the days you don't feel like taking the stairs)! My purpose in New York was to complete an internship in the heart of Midtown, however I made it my mission to spend my free time sight-seeing all that New York has to offer! The convenience of the 4, 5, 6 subway ONLY one block away, was a BIG perk. Buses, cabs and car services are the slowest (and most expensive) way to get anywhere in Manhattan, so the accessibility of the subway at your finger tips makes it incredibly easy to get around. Especially for the first time visitors who have ALOT to see! I would recommend this to anyone (young or elderly) looking for a true New Yorker experience! I adored this apartment, and would rate 5 STARS :)"

  • Wonderful visit to NYC!!

    "My sister and I stayed at this apartment for four nights and we absolutely loved it. We enjoyed the neighborhood and it was very close to the subway. Luca was extremely helpful and John was very nice too. You can hear some noise in the apartment and yes the subway runs under the apartment, but you are in NYC, what do you expect? The noise or the subway never bothered us at all. We were so tired when we came back from exploring the city that we slept like rocks in the super comfy bed. The photos in the apartment was very nice too. The overall feel of the apartment was very nice. It gave us the feel of being real New Yorkers for a few days and was way way better than staying in a hotel. If you do stay here, you have to eat at the Grey Dog on Carmine street, it is delicious. There are several places down Carmine to eat. The neighborhood in General is nice and it was convenient from the airport. We would definitely recommend this apartment and hope to return again for another visit in NYC."

  • Right near Times Square & convenient to the subway

    "My girlfriend and I rented this apartment to take our three girls to NYC for a four-day weekend. It was perfect. Right near Times Square. Convenient to the subway. Awesome doormen. High ceilings. Beautiful apartment with everything you need. Modern look and feel. Walking distance to everything you’ll want to see. Easy rental process. Honestly, the visit went so smoothly, I was shocked. Would definitely rent this place again and highly recommend it to others."

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.
