  • Perfect place for big families!

    "Our family of 6 had a perfect stay in the apartment. From my little 3-year-old girl to my 72-year-old daddy, everybody felt comfortably at home there. The living room has two big fold out couches that we kept as our beds, without ever folding them during our stay, and this did not block the room, which is really big. The bedroom was left to my parents, who have really appreciated the huge bed and the silence surrounding the building at night. The kitchen has everything you need, even when you decide to prepare meals for everybody in the evening! The bathroom is clean and suitable. The neighborhood is really good, with a playground for the kids just across the street and a supermarket, a drugstore, a liquor store and some shops all around us. The subway is also nearby and we have used it everyday in different times never feeling unsafe or standing for more than 5 minutes on the platform. Most important of all, though, was Ray`s kindness to us, from the first email we have exchanged to the farewell in the taxi he himself got to take us to JFK. He really is always there and does his best to make you feel at home. We have appreciated his generosity throughout our stay there, in every detail, including information about getting around in NYC. We definitely recommend this apartment!"

  • Chelsea French Chateau

    "Our family of five spent a long weekend in NYC and were lucky to have found this property. The beds are comfy, the neighborhood is quiet and the owners very helpful. Our train was very late, but Sondra waited for us to arrive and we were greeted graciously. The subway is convenient, and if you like pizza, try Rocco's, just around the corner on 7th Ave. We will stay here on our next trip if at all possible."

  • A gem!

    "We were so lucky to find this gem of an apartment. Fabulous location, central but still very quiet at night. From the outset of booking we found the owners so helpful and full of advice(we had great fun trying to pay the deposit....I never thought it would be so difficult to part with money!!) Once we arrived the apartment was immaculately clean and just as advertised. We had a couple of small issues that Vera was super quick and efficient to resolve. The area is quiet yet has all the necessary facilities(pharmacies/supermarket/cafe/takeouts etc.). We walked quiet a bit with our baby stroller and having Central Park on our doorstep was a huge bonus. Everything that one would need for a city break is provided in the apartment,we had an amazing stay thank you so much Vera:)"

  • Great apartment, great location, great service!!!

    "I really don't have much to add to the other reviews that have already been posted. I would agree with those 5 star reviews 100%. Having lived in NYC for 5 years I can definitely say that this was a top tier apartment in a top tier location. The pictures are 100% accurate, but really do not properly communicate just how much space this apartment offers. The bedrooms are a great side, but the studio space in the back of the apartment is really big and spacious. The living room, dining room, kitchen area is also very spacious and feels even more so by the high ceilings throughout the apartment. Christine was very helpful in giving a few recommendations of restaurants in the neighborhood and in getting us settled into the apartment. We ate at the Burger Joint down the street, and at Otto where I ordered the best ravioli I have ever had. All in all, I believe that this apartment offers an extremely good value in NYC if you need more than 1 bedroom. Even if you don't need more than 1 bedroom it would still be a great place to stay because of its location and the high quality of the apartment. I look forward to the next trip where we can rent the apartment again!"

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.
