Recent Manhattan reviews

  • Perfection!

    "I cannot say enough good things about this place. I chose this unit because of its over-the-top reviews which I can now say, were right on point! The apartment is clean, spacious, cozy and in the best location! We were within walking distance of almost everything we wanted to do on this trip and anything else was just a short train ride away. The owner was also very helpful, friendly and accommodating. From management all the way down to the sheets on the bed, this apartment does not disappoint. I not only plan on staying here again but, I will definitely recommend this place to my friends and family who vacation to New York in the future."

  • Very quiet and convenient NYC base

    "Our first visit to NYC was made all the more memorable with our accommodation choice of Warren and Susan's apartment in the upper west side. The apartment is very well appointed with a wonderful atmosphere which captured the whole sense of belonging in our neighbourhood, where our hosts were very welcoming and provided us with excellent information during our stay. The location is very convenient to a number of subway lines which enabled us to explore the city with ease, and the proximity to Central Park and the wonderful Museum of Natural History were added bonuses. We would highly recomend this apartment to anyone looking to visit New York and hope to return one day. Thanks for a wonderful stay."

  • Great vacation home!

    "My stay at the jersey home was great! The owner was very gracious and accommodating. Everything is there for you that you need. Enough space for a whole family and then some. Drive into the Manhattan Area could be about 40 min at times but it's still very close. Close to Path station to get on subway to the manhattan area is about 15 min. Lots of places to eat at. Overall it was a great home and would stay here again!"

  • Spacious, warm home in Harlem

    "The host (Paris) was exceptionally attentive the first day, making sure everything was perfect for us. The enormous duplex really felt like home for the week. It was better stocked than our own home (coffee bean grinder!), and was filled with interesting books and art. Thanks so much for the great stay. Hope to be back soon."

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.
