Enjoy the City That Never Sleeps from a Manhattan apartment

Manhattan is the central borough of New York City and home to the dense urban landscape for which New York is known. It's where you'll find the massive Empire State Building and the expansive Central Park. New York apartments near the centre of Manhattan tend to be relatively costly, but options on the north and south side of the island can be surprisingly affordable. No matter where you book your rental, however, you'll never be too far away from historical landmarks honouring some of the most impactful events in American history, especially around Harlem.
