  • perfect stay for NYC

    "had a warm and friendly welcome by our host. Everything was prepared for our stay, fridge was filled up with all the necessary things you need for the next days which was great. Accomodation was clean and we enjoyed the nice and safe area of East Village. You'll find plenty of shops, restaurants and subway isn't far away - so you can go very quickly for sightseeing. Thank you very much to our hosts - they were always within reach by call or mail or textmessage. You get plenty hints for restaurants and what to do which was very helpful and comfortable for us. Would strongly recommend this flat for a stay - what a difference to a small and dark hotel room! Thank you so much to Eliana and her husband! greetings from Germany, Gaby & Wolfgang"

  • Lovely week in Tribeca

    "The apartment was as advertised and exceeded our expectations. It was clean with more than adequate linens and kitchen utensils. The street is quiet but close to Tribeca/Soho activities. 24 steps up to the apartment. The owner/manager was excellent to work with."

  • Great Location

    "Close to everything. There were 9 women in our party. We had a good bathroom arrangement. This place did not disappoint. The stairs are pretty hard to maneuver with luggage. Other than that very happy. We had a great time."

  • What a great location to experience Manhattan!

    "Just stayed 6 nights with my wife and 3 teenage boys. Absolute blast! Pics don't do the view justice. We landed in Laguardia. Got 7 day metro passes which cover bus and subway rides before leaving terminal C. Took the Q70 bus to Roosevelt Ave/Jackson Heights and then the E subway train to 42 st Port authority station. Literal across the street from the rear of the building. Times Square is 1.5 blocks down 43rd ave. You are right by Hells Kitchen for tons of dining. We did it all. Statue of Liberty. 911 museum. Wall st. Brooklyn bridge. Little Italy. China town. Chelsea market. Times Square. 5th ave and 6th ave shops. Rockefeller plaza. Empire st bldg. Central Park. Museum of natural history. Beautiful walkway on west ave along Hudson River all way to freedom tower. Madison square garden. Grand central station. We never needed a taxi and never rode a bus. We walked and used subways. We will go back to NYC and this rental in a heartbeat. Only advice for anyone is NYC is not for little kids. Lots of walking. Lots of people and traffic. Lots of museums that take some maturity to grasp. Almost forgot. Did Wicked on Broadway. We bought the broadway tickets, 911 museum tickets, and Statue of Liberty tickets online ahead of time. Rest we did as we went. Definitely get liberty tickets early if you want to go up in pedestal. Few people get crown access too if you book 3-4 months ahead."

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.
