"My teen daughter and I stayed in this apartment for a week. It is perfect! We came to NYC to see several Broadway shows, and the theatres are so close it takes no more than 5 or 10 minutes from apartment to theatre seat. Several subway stations are a few short minutes walk away, providing easy access to all of the city. We explored in every direction. The building is safe, with helpful staff. You can't hear any noise from other apartments. You hear a bit of street noise, like car horns and sirens in the distance, but that didn't bother us as it is part of the experience of staying in NYC. There are blackout blinds in the bedroom and regular blinds in the living room. The owner is fantastic, responsive and easy to contact. She always replied in a short time, from minutes to less than an hour. The apartment is clean and well equipped from kitchen utensils to bedding and towels. The owner provides detailed instructions in a binder full of information about the apartment and the area. We appreciated the champagne in the fridge when we arrived at night to the view of Times Square out the floor to ceiling windows. Several nearby grocery stores within a few minutes walking distance made making many of our meals convenient. We appreciate a clean, full, nicely equipped kitchen as we need it while traveling due to many food allergies and sensitivities. We found Westerly Natural Market on the corner of 8th Ave and 54th St particularly wonderful. They have free delivery. The concierge was excellent in offering tips for good local, non touristy restaurants and activities. Having a king size bed and space to relax is a rarity in NYC. We also enjoyed the rain-like shower head and large tub in the bathroom. We will definitely stay here on return trips to NYC. Not only is it more pleasant than staying in a hotel, it is nice to experience NYC living as a local in an apartment and this specific apartment is safe, clean and comfortable in a perfect location for theatre and wider exploration of NYC and its neighborhoods with all the convenience of local grocery stores and a responsive, caring owner."
