My boyfriend and I stayed here for four weeks and we had a wonderful time! The owners Carole and Beverly were incredibly warm and welcoming—we got fresh-baked banana bread on arrival, as well as plenty of snacks and sodas to get us started. When we arrived the place was clean and tidy and we were greeted warmly. We were shown how to use the wifi and the shower etc, which I appreciated very much, because it made things so much easier for us weary travellers!
Carole was always happy to help with any questions we might have, and she was full of great advice about things to do in NYC, such as Brooklyn Bridge Park, which ended up being one of my favourite places we visited on the whole trip! If we needed anything or had any questions we could email or call, they were very approachable people. (And of course Carole and Beverly live just two floors down if you need them.)
We also used Pratt car service to get to the airport when we left, at Carole's suggestion. Pratt was great and arrived right on time, prices exactly as they said. Would definitely use them again, much cheaper than a taxi!
The subway station was only a short walk away (about 10 minutes), and I always felt safe in the neighbourhood, even at night, so that was a plus! There was a community garden on Hart Street that we passed every day on our way out, and it was always full of adorable cats which occasionally followed us as we walked. As a cat lover I looked forward to seeing which cats were there each day! The neighbourhood had a nice vibe overall.
I would recommend this property to anyone looking to stay in NYC, especially for this price. I had no complaints! I hope I can visit again someday.
