About the property

2 Bedroom Apartment Super Close to NY

Sunny, fresh & clean 2 bdrm1 bath first floor apartment 3 blocks from 24/7 bus to Times Square area then walk to Empire State Building, Top of The Rock, Highline, Central Park,etc. Full kitchen, dining area, reliable and fast wifi. Family friendly.

We used to live in Manhattan, and now we make Union City our home. Why? Larger apartments, as fast or faster to get into the city (faster than traveling on the express train from Harlem), and a great neighborhood vibe.


* Fully equipped apartment where you can relax with your friends and family after a long day in the city.

* Towels, linens, bedding provided

* Fast dependable wifi

* Private keypad code for you only, no keys to lose

* 24/7 super easy access to Manhattan, buses go every 2 min, $3 per trip

* Walk home from bus or walk in neighborhood safely, very low crime area

* Supermarket, great pub, bakery, water park, restaurants, city skyline view all in walking distance.

*Main floor, not interior steps to climb, only four steps up from street

We hope that you'll come stay with us and discover for yourself how crazy it is to be in a different state, but yet so close that it takes you only 15 minutes to get into Times Square.

This 2 family building has two apartments, and this is the first floor apartment. There is another vacation rental apartment upstairs, there is no shared space between the two apartments except the coin-op laundry in the basement.

FOR FAMILIES: Babies and kids are considered guests and are to be included in the guest count.

Many ask about the price and extra fees and how to pay. When you put in the dates and number of people you will get our total cost.

All the payments are safely made with credit card, details of which can be relayed to me via telephone call when you are ready to book.

Bookings with us are done with the "strict" cancellation policy and all cancellations should be done through VRBO. This being said, if we manage to re-rent the place the nights you have canceled we can give a bigger refund to you than what the strict cancellation policy dictates. The earlier you cancel the bigger the chance that we will find other guests.

This is a quiet residential one way street running east. The neighborhood is a mix of South and Central Americans and also home to a large Hasidic Jewish community. You can walk home from the bus at any time, day or night, without problem. There are good restaurants nearby, a huge supermarket a 5 min walk away, and the most stunning skyline views you'll ever see at the end of the street.

To confirm that you have read the entire description, please include the secret word "rockefeller" in your inquiry to me.

Very good location to Manhattan with local buses a 5 minute walk away.

Parking is available on the street (Permit provided) or behind the apartment, although anything bigger than a 3 series BMW will not fit down the drive, with tight angles, you can damage your car (yes I did)

This apartment was a super place to stay. Close to bus to head into NYC. Apartment was extremely clean, had comfortable beds and bedding. Perfect place to return to after a busy day exploring NYC. Apartment had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. Owner was available for questions and to help with any questions. Grocery store was close. Highly recommend staying here! Thank you Maria!

Quaint location, beautiful accommodations and so convenient to NYC bus to Times Square!

  • 4 of 5

Maria was a great hostess and promptly answered all of my questions throughout our stay. The parking behind the apartment was all but impossible unless you have a tiny car but on-street parking in front was just as convenient. We really enjoyed everything. We would stay here again.

Great if you want to get out of the city, but still be close

  • 5 of 5

I stayed just myself with 4 kids (1,4,11, and 13). There was plenty of room for everyone and was able to set one of the rooms up as a “playroom” for the 1 year old as it was relatively baby proof. We didn’t spend much time there since we were in the city most of the day, but it functioned well for getting ready for the day and sleeping. The host was extremely helpful and responds very quickly. The commute into the city was a bit of a pain (mostly due to hauling 4 kids), but i’m not sure I would had changed anything if I had it to do over. The hassle was worth being in a quiet, safe neighborhood. We went in around 9am one day and had to be a little bit aggressive to get a spot on the bus. Other times of the day we didn’t have any issues and pick up at The NY Times building was very easy.
