This is a 2 bedroom apartment (max 6 person) just 10 minutes from New York City. The building is situated in a quiet location, yet it is just around the corner from the business district and a few blocks to the buses that take you to Manhattan in 15 minutes. It is ideal for people looking to visit the city for a couple of days as well as people looking to stay for a couple of months. The apartment has been completely renovated, including the bathroom. The walls have been newly painted and all furniture is brand new! Great energy and very peaceful! Feel free to message me with any questions!
15 Minutes to Times Square but still peaceful, safe and relaxed

I was born in Vienna, Austria and have been living in the States for some 4 decades. I lived in Greenwich Village and the East Village (NYC) for 25 years - I consider myself a true New Yorker still, although I now live in New Jersey! I speak German and English and the people in the building speak Spanish! I do not live in the house. I like to come by the morning after guests arrive to answer all questions and to make sure everything is in order. After that I keep in contact with guests via WhatsApp or other applications (Email, text or phone), so we can be in contact at all times. I am only a few blocks away and can be there in 10 minutes if need be.

Why Hannelore chose Union City
Welcome to New Jersey/New York! This is a 2 bedroom apartment located on the top floor of a 3-family home - just 10 minutes from NYC. It is ideal for people looking to visit the city for a couple of days as well as people looking to stay for a couple of months. Please message me if you are interested in staying for an extended period of time and I will be happy to discuss long-term pricing with you then. The apartment has been completely renovated, including the bathroom. The walls have been newly painted and all furniture is brand new! Great energy and very peaceful! Feel free to message me with any questions! * Located in Union City, NJ, a very short direct bus ride to the Times Square area * Five blocks from gorgeous Manhattan views (along Hudson River) * Best 'cafe con leche' in town around the corner. You'll wonder why you spend so much at Starbucks! * Buses to Manhattan/Times Square run every minute during day, and every 4 minutes at night. Buses run 24/7. It is easier and faster to commute into the City from Union City than commuting from Brooklyn or Queens. If you were to stay in the Bronx it would take you 40 min to get to Times Square. If you were to stay in Brooklyn it would take you the same amount of time as subways in Brooklyn are not direct. If you were to stay in Manhattan you would not find a place as big as this one for this price. * Great grocery and wine/liquor stores in the neighborhood; a Bodega around the corner (open until 11pm), an Italian deli across the street from it, and the supermarket is just a few blocks away. * Very safe neighborhood, lots of great restaurants and bakeries but also very quiet at night.
What makes this Apartment unique
Believe it or NOT – it is possible to be outside of Manhattan and so close to it, yet it's true. Here are some facts about transportation: 1. Apartment is 5 minutes (7 blocks) walking from the central bus stop at post office. 2. The jitney bus is very frequent, I rarely wait for it more than 2 to 3 minutes. Most of the time you won't even wait at all. You will get to the bus stop and a bus will be there. 3. Buses are available 24/7 so you can catch them even when you spend the whole evening out. 4. The price of these express buses is $3.00 onboard, if you buy tickets at ticket window #23 at Port Authority Bus Terminal you will get a big discount! 5. You won't find a timetable or route on the internet for these buses, it's a private bus company that runs many lines in and out of Manhattan 6. City bus #22 runs every 30 minutes into Hoboken, home of the Cake Boss, Birthplace of Frank Sinatra and Baseball (where you can also catch the PATH into Manhattan 33rd Street and/or the World Trade Center) and bus #123 every 15-30 minutes (during commute hours) into Manhattan’s Port Authority (42nd Street & 8th Avenue – Times Square) * Easy city bus access to Jersey Garden Outlet Mall, much closer and as good as Woodbury Commons. We are also close to Hoboken, Weehawken and Jersey City. * There is a fully equipped kitchen and refrigerator. * Keypad code (no physical keys) so you can come and go as you please

We are located across the Hudson River from Manhattan with beautiful views over the skyline from the George Washington to the Verizzano Bridge ... those views can be enjoyed taking a short walk from the house. Union City is clean and safe, no matter what time of the day or night you return from the hustle and bustle of NYC!
