  • Highly recommend!

    "I love, love, love the Blue loft in LIC!! My 16-yr-old daughter and I rented it for the month of July while she was attending dance training in the city. Previous summers we have stayed in Manhattan but now feel we have found our home-away-from-home with this gem. More bang for the buck in this true 2-bedroom apartment with a perfect view of the Chrysler building. Even plenty of room for my husband and son to join us the last several nights of our stay! The neighborhood is great with beautiful Gantry Plaza State Park nearby (talk about the best view of the city skyline!) along with a plentiful variety of quaint restaurants and convenient groceries all within walking distance. It felt like an escape from the hustle-bustle yet only a one-minute walk to the subway that goes straight to Grand Central in about 5 minutes. The best of both worlds!"

  • Excellent accommodation

    "I reserved the apartment for 10 days with a family of 7. The place was great and Roy, the owner, was very helpful and available to answer any questions. The check in and out were very easy and did not face any problems. The most amazing thing in the apartment is that it has all little things that you need in an apartment: napkins, salt, pepper, sugar, tea, coffee, and jam. In addition, Ray was kind enough to get us on the day of arrival a bottle of milk and a bottle of orange juice. The place is extremely clean and the kitchen has all what you would need in a vacation and even more. The laundry facility was great and very efficient especially for big families. It really helped me a lot!! We rented a car and the drive to Manhattan was not very easy because of the traffic, although it is close. Thanks Roy very much for a lovely stay in New York and we will definitely come back!! but"

  • Great time was had by all!

    "Highly impressed. From the initial communication about reserving this condo, Quaisar was SO accommodating. He called me personally, answering the numerous questions I had and was there at the condo to meet us upon our arrival. He is just a sweet in person as he was over the phone. He had stocked the fridge with water, milk, juice, eggs, and bread. The perfect host! Even though I was nervous of the location (first time VRBO user), please do not judge this book by its cover. Exactly what you see with the pics! The inside was perfect for our stay. The short walk to the subway was a breeze, and the quick ride to the US Open as well as Manhattan was easy too (around 30 min - but didn't seem that long). Each night, us 3 ladies, would walk back to the condo from the subway, and never felt scared. This was very comforting for us. We have stayed in Times Square in the past and traveled to the US Open that way...I know we have found our new "spot". Thanks again Quaizar!!!!!!!"

    "We just got back today from our wonderful vacation at this quaint, charming, rustic, beautiful house on the pond. We have 3 kids ages 14-7. They all said this was the best vacation we ever took. They fished everyday and swam in the pond. The pond is very clean and private. The owners have a canoe, row boat, kayak and pedal boat which we all used and loved. It was nice for all of us to disconnect and be together as a family. The house is immaculate! Diane is wonderful! She made me feel like family and wanted us to have a wonderful time. We really had some nice family time. We watch DVDs and played board games. She has a nice selection of movies, CDs and games. The house is about 40 minutes from Lake George, which is nice, but we really spent our time at the house. The kids didn't want to leave. We were all content just to hang out on the pond. We had a fire almost every night. We use VRBO frequently, because it is nice to be in a house instead of a hotel. By far, this was one of the best, cleanest, friendliest, rentals we have stayed at. We got home today and my security deposit is already refunded! I would recommend doing your food shopping before you get to the house so you don't have to leave. If you fish, stock up on bait! The kids caught a ton of bass and sunnies. You also should bring water shoes and bug spray. There is not too much around that is close by, so if you are looking to get away from it all, this is it! However, if you do want to do something, all the main attractions are 30-45 minutes away. This also would be a very romantic get away too. We only went to Lake George once and also did white water rafting, which was fun. We highly recommend The Barn Restaurant, which is about 20 minutes away in Vermont. This is a fantastic place!! The photos and description are exactly what you get and more! Everything in the home is meant to be used. It was nice not to have to bring linens or towels. She also had laundry detergent and paper towels, trash bags, etc. I would highly recommend this rental! Thank you Diane for a wonderful family vacation that we will remember forever!"

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.
