  • Great long weekend in NYC

    "We spent a long weekend here in August and this is a terrific apartment. The location is great - with easy access to the subway going uptown or downtown on either the east or west side. The views are spectacular at sunrise and as evening falls. The kitchen is functional (we went to the union square green market and made a feast). The space is well laid out and comfortable for two people. Needs a few minor repairs or additions - disposal, oven mitt, a dish towel the and a rubber matt for the tub - nearly did an endo during the first shower. The wifi is slow - just a hassle when trying to make plans for the day. We will definitely be back."

  • wonderful

    "Together with my wife (age 48 and 51) we stayed in this apartment for one week around New Years Eve. That was one of the best decision we made in the past! I think everyone is curios after renting an apartment online, how everything you had read in the description or saw on the photos will be in reality. We can confirm to everyone it´s true or even better. A wonderful spacious, clean, fully equipped loft with a useful bathroom. The furnishings and equipment of the loft is artful, unique and exceptional in a absolute positive manner. I have never seen so many interesting books in one room before. The citymaps of Mr. van Dam are a particularity on top. They are helpful and perfect to use. The owner Gail and Stephan were very helpful, answered every question by mail and had a great understanding and cooperativness for some problems we had with our international payment and were very flexibel, when we wanted to extend our time in the loft. The place of the loft in NY is perfect. It isn´t noisy, but everything is absolutly near by. Shops, restaurants, underground in every direction,... We have the luck to be able to travel a lot around the world and we even were a few times in NY. With this experience and all impressions of this loft, we are very pleased to recommend it to all our relatives, friends or to everyone, who reads this review. We hope Gail and Stephan will never be disappointed by guests who destroy their willingness to rent their private apartment! Best wishes from Germany Thanks for this wonderful time."

  • Incredibly Comfortable, Spacious Apartment in an Ideal Location.

    "My wife and I stayed here for the week of Thanksgiving in 2013. I wish we had known about this apartment on our previous trips to NYC and not spent double the money for a third of the space and comfort. The best thing about Honored Guest Properties (also check out their listing in Villefranche sur Mer) is that they are fully furnished apartments that feel like the owners actually lived there for an extended period, so *everything* is provided. If you feel like picking up something from the multiple markets nearby and cooking, you have every cooking implement you could ever want. There are loads of guidebooks and other tour guide references as well. The apartment is wonderfully decorated and full of little luxuries like Elizabeth Arden bath towels (drool). The best things about this rental are: - Location. You cannot ask for a better location in Manhattan. It is central to everything worth seeing. It really gives you the best of Chelsea and the West Village. - Space. This rental is amazingly spacious for two people and can easily accommodate four. We stayed here for a week but could have easily stayed here for six months without feeling like we're tripping over each other. - Comfort. There are a million things to see and do in NYC but if you're exhausted from the day's adventures or the weather is miserable, it is very tempting to sit on the sofa, pop in one of the owners' CDs, read a book, and look up now and then at the beautiful skyline with the Empire State Building and Chrysler Building in full view. We consider this apartment our new home in NYC and look forward to staying there again in March 2014."

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.
