Why Peter Simpson chose Union City
Our apartment is only a 15 minutes ride into Manhattan (depending on traffic) with access to either Lincoln or Holland tunnels. The NJ Transit bus stop is also a block away from the apartment which takes you directly to 42st Port Authority station. Please let us know if we have not sent you our Guest Guide PDF document yet! This apartment has video surveillance 24 hrs a day in the front parking lot and on the rear deck.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
As stunning as the pictures
... in a very convenient location and with an extremely helpful property manager in case you face issues (which we did with our rental car, not with the appartement). Good connection to downtown via Bus 123 - we would definitvely come back !!
We stayed in this location during a recent visit to NY - The apartment is really cozy and clean. The view of the Empire State building was breathtaking and inspiring. I would have given this a four-star review was it not for those awkward narrow spiral staircases that were so hard to maneuver even for the average size teenager and we had two of them. These set of stairs where I slipped a few times the night of our arrival, discouraged my husband and me from going downstairs for our entire stay to where all the bedrooms are located. Thus, we ended up leaving all our belongings upstairs and slept on the couch since there was a bathroom on the first floor.
Since our visit was in the winter- the climate of the apartment was difficult to control due to the structure being older and thin-walled to noises. So, we had to request a space heater for one of the downstairs' room to keep it warm. Moreover, right at the gate adjacent to the parking, several garbage containers are kept where rats and a skunk was roaming around several nights.
Additionally, this place is not in NY and it is not in walking distance to Times Square- it is in boundary line of NJ right outside of NY. Therefore, transportation from LGA to the location via a cab ride is over $100 and each rideshare is over $35 to Broadway and over $40 back. Then, this location charges for $20 per night if you have a car. Thus, we had a rental car that costs over $200 per day to negotiate between toll, parking in NY, rental cost and parking in the apartment.
The owner was responsive and inquire about our stay - he did provide us with a space heater around midnight the night after our arrival when he found out that one of the rooms was still cold. Economically speaking, this is not a good deal if you are visiting NY, stay in NY and even if you pay $400 per night a hotel near Times Square and close to the theater district and food/restaurants at walking distance- it is a much better deal and fewer hassles than being outside of NY.
Great location and the 24 hour bakery across the street was a delight. The apartment could use a few updates, put a dresser in the other two rooms as there’s no closets for your clothes. Update the information book s there’s no laundry room on the property. The spiral staircase is a challenge and should be explained better on the sight. A vacuum would be helpful for those occasional messes. Peter and staff were awesome , they answered all questions and were very helpful as we were newbies to NYC.
Get place to tour NYC from and reconnect as family!
We flew out from Colorado with our other 3 children to pick up my son from his two year church mission in NJ. The appartment was a wonderful place to reconnect as a family and tour NYC. It had everything we needed and the parking space was a plus. Oh... and the view of NYC skylune is everything Peter advertizes and more! Truely amazing!
the property has all the amenities, appliances. The view is stunning, great little neighborhood. Definitely going to be a repeat for me. Good response on any inquiries also. The only drawbacks; was difficult to find the house # and parking can be a challenge, but they're only minor
Super View - Great Property
We stayed at Peter's place to visit our son and attend the Vikings / Jet's game. Really impressive property. The view is actually as you see on the VRBO site. We did alot of cooking in the kitchen and I had everything I needed for basic meals. Also, it was in very good shape. As for groceries, Trader Joes is down the hill. Access to NYC was the 123 bus about a 1/2 block away.
The only thing I would say is the stairs downstairs are tight. It is a circular stair, which I am used to as we have one in our vacation home. But, it could be problematic for people with mobility problems. *** if you don't have mobility problems don't let this dissuade you - this is a nice property.
We are minutes from Manhattan Times Square NYC attractions Restaurants Hoboken has tones of Night life bars and shops Union City short walking distance to restaurants 24/7 Bakery and 24/7 shop is 4 blocks away!!!
