Recent New York reviews

  • No surprises is a very good thing

    "I am an ex-NYer who came back for business and pleasure for 3 weeks last month. I usually stay with friends but not for a period this long. I saw this unit online and did my first HomeExchange rental. I was extremely pleased with following: 1) owner and his orientation to apartment and building services and his guidebook- very hands on and helpful, even with my bags both coming and going also; 2) unit- it looks exactly as you see it on the listing- very light, bright; 3) Location is perfect in mid-town where I needed to be- 30 min walk to theatre district and Grand central subways are 5 minutes away; 4) cleanliness-I am vary wary of bugs given my prior NY history. Not 1 bug did I see in the unit or building!!; 5) internet worked like a charm; 6) large closet with lots of hangers; 7) it's on a street, not avenue so relatively quiet; 8) People in the building that I met were nice and they even had a December holiday party in the lobby for the residents and staff- very well attended (this did not happen in building when I lived in NY). FedEx, Dagostinos, Shake Shack are a stone's throw away and owner told me there's a vegan bakery at block's end. Only downsides- everything is white so as a red wine drinker I had to be very cautious. Even coffee grounds will stain a counter if you don't wipe them right away. Teeny kitchenette- not really practical for making a meal, but simple stuff (oatmeal, toasting bagel, reheating takeout, making coffee, etc.) works fine and for a small fridge you can fit a lot in. I suggest owner get some place mats and coasters given the "white" situation and wash cloths for bathroom would be nice addition too. Would definitely rent from him again and recommend to others. Additional note: if you try to make a pickup reservation with SuperShuttle online the address shows up as a hotel and SS charges a surcharge for hotel pickups, so you need to make your reservation by phone to save the $20+. The doorman did tell me that it used to be a Hilton many moons ago."

  • Oasis in the city

    "As I sit in this lovely apt. on our last morning here, enjoying a cup of tea, I just had to write to say how much we enjoyed our stay. I’d say the main attraction of this apt is location. Right off of 5th Ave., 3 blocks from the Empire State Bldg Observatory Entrance, and 2 subway stops from Times Square, this apt is ideally situated for exploring the city. I counted 3 main subway stations within walking distance of the apt! The apt is on a direct line to the 911 Memorial (R Train), to Times Square (R Train), Lincoln Center (no. 1 train) and to Bloomingdales (No 6 train). There are lots of great restaurants within walking distance. Take a right out of the bldg and walk to the end of the block for a great convenience store/deli, where I purchased our breakfast each morning to bring back to the apt. Delicious bagel sandwiches! S'Mac, on 33rd and 3rd is also an easy walk from the apt and offers wonderful dishes at a great price! There is also a Bread and Butter on 5th Ave and 31st that literally offers anything you could want to eat, from Korean food, Japanese food, Italian, to NYC deli. They offer a great hot buffet that is very reasonable. The owner was very responsive to any requests I had and was a true delight to work with. He provided a detailed account of the neighborhood and the location of all amnenities one might need, including laundry, gym, and grocery stores, as well as restaurant recommendations. The apt itself is very comfortable and provides everything one might need during their stay. Tom has thoughtfully provided umbrellas in the closet, tea and coffee in the cupboard (along with many other condiments and toiletries) and the bed is one of the most comfortable that I have ever slept in. There is a full bathroom, including a tub. Those who are in the city for business will appreciate the large desk and desk lamp along with free wifi! The a/c worked wonderfully and was much appreciated during the muggy summer days. I can’t think of a single thing lacking in this apt. It was just my son and I on this trip, but there is a blow up mattress, so I’d think a family of 3 would also be quite comfortable here. The only caveat I would offer is that it is a 4th floor walk up, which might be challenging to the elderly or those with very young children, but for us, it was a welcome way to work off the delightful food we enjoyed in the city. Thanks again Tom for a wonderful stay."

  • Fantastic Find!

    "If you're looking for peace and quiet, a beautiful view from a private deck and a two minute walk to the sunsets on the bay beach, this is the place. It's small, but very cozy and clean and was exactly what we were looking for for two couples who wanted to see the sights, but also relax. It was fully stocked, the owners were a pleasure to deal with and we are already looking forward to a return trip. This is a true gem!"

  • Beautiful Lodge in great location

    "Myself and a group of friends stayed in this beautiful lodge for a weekend. The lodge itself is incredible. Pool table, hot tub, and open fire were all ready to go. Clean, comfortable and situated on its own plot of land in a truly gorgeous scenic location, I couldn't recommend enough."

New York Travel Tips

New York is a hub of culture, history, diversity and excitement.

New York City is made up of five boroughs: Manhattan, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx, while the rest of the upstate region is made up of different cities, town and suburbs. Manhattan and Staten Island are islands off the state’s mainland and accessed through tunnels, bridges and ferries.

Getting around New York is a breeze with an intricate yet user-friendly public transit system as well as the famous yellow taxis. In the city centers, walking is a great way to move around while still experiencing the sights and sounds of the different areas. However, car rentals may be need for those who exploring attractions upstate in areas like the Finger Lakes.

Things to do in New York

Broadway: A trip into Manhattan isn’t complete without taking in a show on the “Great White Way.” Considered the hub of theater in the U.S., Broadway is home to some of the best musical and acting productions in the world.

Cooperstown: Baseball fans won’t want to miss the opportunity to visit Cooperstown, which is not too far from Albany. This area is recognized as the shrine of baseball, and with its small-town charm and stellar views of the countryside, it’s definitely worth the visit. It’s the home of the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum as well as the Fenimore Art Museum and the Glimmerglass Opera. After a pickup baseball game, check out the local cultural attractions for a full day of fun.

Staten Island Ferry: Traveling between Manhattan and Staten Island best done aboard the famous Staten Island ferries. With service between St. George and Whitehall Street, it not only transports people between boroughs, but also delivers stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, New York Harbor, Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty. Along your journey, you can explore the unique attractions each borough has to offer.

Ellis Island: One of the most famous historical sites associated with freedom is New York’s Ellis Island. Situated in Upper New York Bay, Ellis Island was the gateway for millions of immigrants coming to America during the 19th and early 20th centuries. The island is also home the the Statue of Liberty, which was usually the first thing immigrants saw when they came off of the boats. Ellis Island houses a museum of immigration where visitors can learn all about the island’s history and even trace their own ancestral roots.

Central Park: No trip to the Big Apple is complete without a walk through Central Park. This public space opened in 1857 and is situated in the center of this borough. The park is the perfect location for a relaxing stroll or a lovely lunchtime picnic. Enjoy a friendly game of frisbee or hop in the saddle and take a horseback ride through the North Woods - you might actually forget you are in the country's biggest metropolis! Providing stunning visuals in all four seasons, Central Park is the perfect place to experience some greenery and nature in the middle of concrete and skyscrapers.

Niagara Falls: Niagara Falls is best seen from the Maid of the Mist, a boat cruise ferrying visitors right alongside the rapids. You can also experience the falls from Prospect Park Point walkways. It’s quite a sight to witness this majestic natural attraction in person. After a visit to the falls themselves, you can spend some time exploring the rest of Niagara Falls State Park, hiking around trails or taking a trolley ride and experiencing a guided tour to learn all about the park.

Duckwalk Vineyards: New York is full of successful wineries, such as Duckwalk Vineyards. With two locations in Southampton and Long Island, this winery has truly made its place. On the North Fork of Long Island, 30 acres of sauvignon grapevines grow, waiting for harvest. It’s also the perfect location for a wine tasting while visiting the wine trail.

Shopping and Dining in New York

Macy’s: Manhattan is home to the famous Macy’s flagship store, which opened in 1924. It became the world’s largest department store. Head to the corner of 34th Street and Herald Square to do some shopping here and feel a part of history.

Woodbury Common: With more than 220 stores, Woodbury Common is one of the largest outlet shopping centers in the world and certainly worth a trip. With such an array of shops, you’re sure to find anything you’re looking for here.

Jack’s Oyster House: For almost 100 years, this family-owned restaurant has been serving up hungry patrons giant porterhouse steaks and fresh seafood dishes with a French twist. With elegant decor and an interesting history, this is one eatery in Albany you can't miss.

Sardi’s: Before taking in a show, eat a Sardi’s, an eatery considered the toast of Broadway. Located in the heart of the Theater District, Sardi’s is the birthplace of the Tony Aways, and caricatures of celebrities adorn the wall.

Chinatown: For an authentic Chinese meal, head to New York’s Chinatown. Boasting the largest influence of Chinese heritage in the western hemisphere, this is the place to get handmade noodles and dim sum. Explore the different shops and attractions in Chinatown to really feel immersed in this culture.
