  • Live like a local, tour every area of New York

    "My husband and I with our grown up daughter decided to spend a month in New York and our main aim was to see everything there was to see. Live like a local by staying in a neighborhood that was not populated by hotels and tourists. We knew of CitySonnet from previous visits and sent them an email in the hope they may know of an apartment that would fit the bill. Lucky for us, they had since our last contact with them taken on the Loft Apartments in 50th Ave, Long Island City. Long Island City is on the banks of the East River with wonderful full Island vies back to Manhatten. It is part of the borough of Queens, not on Long Island is in my opinion is a very new, very clean neighborhood, where young couples and families are setting up home. We had previously stayed in the area for just a week, and knew what a great find this was. The apartments are right on the number 7 line train, and is just the one stop from Grand Central Station, mere minutes, and then continues across the width of Manhatten Island, with stops and transfers at 5th Ave, Times Square and Hudson Rail Yards at the top of the wonderful Hi Line walk down the west side of the island. Because this line goes across town and every stop you can get off and transfer to all of the other underground train systems, popping out in what ever neighborhood you have decided to explore. You can catch the train the other way which will take you to Queens and Flushing Meadows and transfer down to Brooklyn, although we preferred the East River Ferry that runs every 20 minutes on weekends down the East River to Brooklyn and across to either Wall street at the bottom of Manhatten or Midtown directly across. The ferry is a short 2 block walk down the the East River waterfront, which in itself is a wonderful destination in the warmer weather for exercise or just a lazy coffee in the sun. The apartment is spacious with 2 bedrooms, a full kitchen and laundry facility and plenty of space to sit down a relax when your not out and about. There are two reasonable size supermarkets nearby, and a full pharmacy, as well as a couple of small grocery convenience stores. And you are able to choose from many wine bars, restuarants, pizza outlets, and diners in the surrounding streets, that all cater for the locals more so than tourists, which means prices are considerably less than on Manhatten Island. But if you want to wine and dine in Manhatten, its a very quick and safe journey via the underground system."

  • Pleasantly surprised

    "First time in New York! We were very nervous and more nervous to stay in the Bronx based on hear say. The subway ride is a little long from downtown New York, but once you get the hang of riding the subway it's a nice time to sit back and relax. We walked from the subway to the apartment, which is not very far. We were greeted by the owner on our arrival and she was more than willing to answer any of our questions. The apartment was very clean and loaded with anything we needed. We slept great even though the streets were busy with cars and people and sirens (which you will hear anywhere in New York) We felt very safe. If we are able to visit New York again, I will definitely be staying here."

  • WONDERFUL Owners and WONDERFUL place to stay!!

    "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! Owners we very very helpful in helping us learn how to navigate the UWS as well as NYC. Great suggestions on food, shopping and events in the local area and how to get around. The apartment was just perfect for what we needed. Greeted with a refrigerator full of goodies and waters. Just a wonderful experience. My husband and I are already talking about coming back to NYC just for some plays and dinner - and this is the apartment we would stay in again. Loved it!"
