We really enjoyed our stay at this apartment! Having a bedroom separate from the TV room was a plus for us, our kids would stay up late watching TV or playing with their computers and my husband and I could go to bed and have some peace and quiet! The neighborhood is nice and very QUIET ( I was surprised how quiet it was). I felt very safe walking around there late at night with my boys. I even sent them by themselves down two blocks to buy pizza! Although they are 12 and 14 they are not used to big city. Before I arrived I had concerns about safety since my husband would only stay for few days and I would stay alone with the boys for 2 weeks...But I felt very safe there.
Thom was very nice, even before we arrived in NY, I sent him many emails asking many questions about the city and he was always Extremely HELPFUL! Thanks Thom. The TV stopped working one night and he came the next morning to check it out. The apartment was very clean and well maintained. Just like the pictures, everything looked pretty new, the linens were nice and fresh. Another nice thing Thom does is that he provides coffee, sugar, salt and things like that, for the first few days so you don't need to run out to buy them. We loved the chocolates and the wine! There are many delis and small grocery stores around there. We ate mostly when we were out and about but we tried the Tompkins bagel place, love their home made cream cheese ! It's close to the 7 Eleven on B Avenue and we ate pizza at the Eleven B, which was great! The servers were very nice. For our stay We needed two weeks stay but all the apartments were rented,( because we really wanted to stay at Thom's place for all the great reviews he receives) he was very nice to figure out a way for us to stay 1 week on this one and the second week on his other place p903716, which is on the first floor. Another great one. I will stay here again and will recommend to all our friends and family! Thanks Thom.
