  • Great place !

    "Just as pictured here. Very very roomy for 5,6,7 people (our numbers shifted thru the week). Staff at management company available and responsive for our specific check in / check out needs, and quite flexible. Great kitchen, living room, dining room / great room area, roomy bedrooms. Downside: living room couches are not comfortable, and sofa-beds and mattresses leave much to be desired. Standard Beds are great, lots of linens and comforters, etc. Great and multiple eateries and groceries right on the block. Location is great for much sight seeing, and very walkable visits to Eataly, Madison Sq Park, East Village, High Line (straight down 23rd). Bus line running north right outside, cabs everywhere, and subway 2 blocks away. We highly recommend this rental."

  • One of a kind stay!

    "My friends and I have been to NYC many times before. This was a different experience for all of us! Absolutely beautiful view and lovely apartment! Wonderful and very safe area! Very convient to grocery store and subway station! The owner was so wonderful! Very helpful and patient with all of my questions! We woke up early every morning to go for a walk by the water. Super place for families as well! I plan on staying again when I go back with my girlfriends or with my family! You will not be dissapointed in staying here! You can experience the hustle and bustle the city by taking a taxi or the train into upper Manhatten then go back and enjoy a quiet evening in the apartment. We stayed with 6 w Ladies and we were very comfortable even though it sleeps 4. We made adjustments as needed. A truly different experience! I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else!"

  • So glad we rented it!

    "I went to NY with my brother and his wife. This place was perfect. The rates are great and I love the fact that there was no deposit as well. Winston, the super was nice and helpful. The beds are both very comfortable with soft sheets. There are only two cons to this place. The bathroom had quite a bit of hair throughout the shower which led us to question how well the place is cleaned but the kitchen looked clean and there were fresh sheets and towels so we tried to put it out of our minds. Honestly, other than that the bathroom look clean. The second con is not really the owners fault. The loft ceiling is about 3-4 feet from where my head is while sleeping and the upstairs neighbors are busy folks. One morning at 430 there was a LOT OF commotion, like they were running relays and celebrating in a rolling chair. Thank goodness it only lasted a half hour. Location is excellent!!! And it was so cool to see the empire state building right out the front door. Big clean fridge, all the glassware etc we could need. The heater worked great and plenty of hot water. Very polite manager/owner Cee and again, Winston was a cool guy. So glad we found it and it was available. If I ever go back to NY I am looking this place up first."

  • Great location

    "The location of this Apartment is great. A short walk one direction to Time Square and Hell Kitchen the other direction. A subway station is very close which we used a lot. We used the free Subway app. everyday to help decide how we were getting around to the farther destinations. Robert the owner is wonderful. He provides a nice flower arrangement and great espresso machine. There are 3 bedrooms with nice beds in each (one has 2 beds), so we had plenty of room for sleeping. Just as the hotel rooms are small in NY, so are the apartments. Things to be aware of as you make your choice: 1. The rental company made me feel as if this was a potential fraud. The VRBO listing shows credit cards are acceptable; however the rental company makes it very clear they are not accepted. The rental is a series of events which feels like you are being piece milled in an unfriendly way. For example, we agreed on a price and dates. When we signed the rental agreement, so the fine print began. Payment is by wire, etc and must be received in 24 hours or you lose the hold on the property. Really? Luckily we were given a little more time due to a weekend and me trying to do more research on whether this was legit or not. There is a management fee which a credit card can be used and not sure why this payment has to be separate and it states you pay it and don't get it refunded if something else changes. For future renters, I hope credit card is an option since that works so easily for all other VRBO rentals. 1a. You actually have to request your damage deposit to be returned. Really again? What a way to treat your customers. 2. The unit is on the 3rd floor, and there is no elevator. The entry, halls and stairs haven't been updated in probably 30+ years and they are very narrow. The stairs are steep, so get ready for a hike. Nonetheless, if you can't walk and do stairs, then you shouldn't visit NY, since that is all we did while there. 3. The picture makes the apt looks very new and updated. It is still nice and works, but the Apartment is dated just like a number of the hotels. I am just trying to set expectations since I was a little shocked with all the above since this was my first experience like this when using VRBO."

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.
