Our family of 4 spent 7 nights in the condo in NYC and had a great experience. The place is very comfortable and easy to access. The building is close to the subway and in a safe and friendly neighborhood. It was easy to walk to the Statue of Liberty and Battery Park and not too far from the 9/11 memorial. The kitchen was nice - we packed lunches a couple of times, but I didn't get to cook there (except some microwave use). The tap water was surprisingly good to drink, so we kept cold bottles of water in the frig & freezer and re-filled them from the sink. I did laundry and that was fast and easy. I would recommend this place to anyone and would love to stay there again if we ever travel back to NYC.
