Recent Manhattan reviews

  • Great place to stay in NYC!

    "It was our first time in NYC, so we were afraid of choosing the wrong place to stay. However, we made the right decision! In Long Island City you are close enough to Manhattan (just one metro stop from the apartment) to see its beautiful skyline, but far from its madness and chaotic traffic. The apartment is clean, large and very well equipped. The owner, Dahlia, was very kind. We really loved it!"

  • Fabulous Find!

    "Gerri’s apartment is truly a little home away from home. My friend and I spent 9 wonderful days in this fabulously comfortable and well equipped apartment and we could not possibly have asked for more. What you see in the photographs is exactly what you get. The doormen wished us a happy day when we left in the mornings and greeted us with a smile when we returned home. New York is best seen on foot so we walked just about everywhere, however, subways and bus stops were very easily accessible. For the more adventurous, New York’s rent a bicycle program is an option and there is a bicycle pick-up drop-off located on 2nd Avenue just around the corner. Also on the corner is the very fabulous Fairways Market which made having meals at home so very convenient. It is stocked with a wonderful selection of fresh fruits, vegetables, ready to go meals, gourmet cheeses and cold cuts not to mention all the other necessary items one might need. There are many restaurants in the area so the choices are unlimited. Gerri and her assistant Danuta could not have been more accommodating with early check-in and late check-out times and the day before we left, we received a very nice email from Gerri thanking us for our stay! If I make another trip to New York, this is most definitely where I will stay!"

  • Great place

    "When we were looking to book a place, we wondered about the 45 - 5 star reviews and no negatives, but now we know, and are adding another 5 stars. Tim's place was perfect for our ten day stay. He is a pleasant person who obviously cares about making his clients stay a good one. The apt was clean, and comfortable. The building is very well kept. We are already planning a return."

  • Absolutely Picture Perfect!

    "Absolutely wonderful, the perfect location! In the heart of Greenwich Village lies this absolute gem. Perfectly presented and very well maintained this amazing one bedroom had everything we needed and more! Amongst the hustle and bustle of NYC the apartment was very secure, quiet, clean and a fantastic size for the 2 of us. Marina was wonderful, beyond accommodating and a wealth of knowledge of the local area. Will be recommending to friends without a doubt and hope to re-visit again one day myself. Thankyou again, could not have been better!"

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.
