Why Ayele chose Manhattan

I bought this property 10 years ago and did a gut renovation that took 3 years. It was painted again in January 2015 and furnished with high quality furniture, new sheets, towels, and dish/kitchen ware.

What makes this apartment unique

You have the pleasure of being on the top floor and surrounded by wonderful neighbors.

Clean, light and airy and located close to two subway lines

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was clean, lots of sunshine. It had everything we needed and is very basic. The towels and sheets were clean but well used. Sarah, our contact person, was very easy to work with and able to answer all of our questions. There were a few decent restaurants near by but one could always hop on the subway to others. Tennants in the building were friendly. There were some character types out on the street but they never bothered us.

Perfect Place to stay in NYC!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting NYC and this apartment was perfect for us! Clean, cozy, and comfortable with a very warm feel. The location is so convenient. About 5 minute walk to the subway access is a huge plus of this location! Sarah greeted us upon arrival and was extremely welcoming and friendly, not to mention very accessible via text for any questions we had. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anybody (except the older people considering walking up the stairs to the 6th floor which we didn't mind at all) looking for a place to stay in NYC!

Thank you very much for letting us stay at this place : )

I love New York!

  • 4 of 5

My daughter and I shared Ayele's apartment from August 5-11/16. Unfortunately we did not get to meet Ayele as he was out of town, but Sarah, the property manager took good care of us. When we arrived, we followed the directions that Sarah gave us and had no trouble finding the building. Sarah met us there shortly after we arrived and took us up the 6 floors to #65.

We knew that the apartment was on the 6th floor and that there was no elevator, so we were not surprised. I am in my 60's, so if I can do it, most people probably can . That being said, it was extremely hot and that combined with hauling a suitcase up 6 flights, we were incredibly thankful to enter the air conditioned apartment. The apartment was clean and equipped with almost everything one could want. The only thing that was notably missing was a toaster. Since I have toast or bagels daily, as does my daughter, we really missed it. I would suggest that this is something that you might consider purchasing, Ayele.

Our initial impression of the neighbourhood was less than stellar. There were several homeless people on the way from the subway to the apartment, and many people congregating out on the street. Sarah explained to us that many of the residents in the area do not have air conditioning and therefore hang out on the street where it is slightly cooler. I must say that every person with whom we spoke was friendly and chatty, but none more than the landlord who hangs out on the front stoop. He had his finger on the pulse of the neighbourhood. This neighbourhood is so different from mine, but I liked it. I never really felt unsafe, however one night we had to take the long way around the block to get home. We never found out what it was all about, but we were fine about it.

The first day, the Internet and Apple TV did not work. Sarah took care of it as quickly as possible by purchasing a new modem/router. Communication was good with Sarah. She responded quickly when we needed information and was very helpful.

As far as New is fantastic!! We packed more into our 5 days than seems possible. The following is a list of our shenanigans.

Times Square X2

Broadway Shows X2

Jazz Clubs X3

Ground Zero

Empire State Building

Central Park X2

Metropolitan Museum of Art

Radio City Music Hall show

Yankees ball game

Carnegie Hall

Grand Central Station

Statue of Liberty


Not one thing was a dud. Thanks for letting us stay at your place!

Uptown Getaway

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was very nice and had everything you needed (Fridge, washer/dryer, etc). It is a six story walkup, but we knew that when we booked it so it was not any issue.

The one big negative is that there is a lot of street noise.(mostly sirens, trucks, etc) With the two room A/C units allowing noise in, the street noise can pretty bad.

Other than that, the apartment is very close to the "C" and "1" subway trains, and there are a many little restaurants within walking distance.

Owner's Response: We put new insulation on the air conditioners so there is minimal street noise. However this is New York, and there will always be sirens even if the apartment is totally sealed. In fact this a relatively quiet apartment (compared to old ones) because we insulated the walls when doing the renovation. Also, since it is a residential location in northern Manhattan it has less noise than downtown.

Overall very pleasant experience!

  • 4 of 5

Nicely renovated, cozy apartment. Pretty convenient location within short walking distance of two subway lines and numerous bus stops. Owner was helpful and quick to respond. Check-in and check-out was very smooth. Pack light though, as you have to manually take your luggage up six flights of stairs (i.e. No elevators). Very pleasant experience overall!
