We visited New York this summer with our two children, ages 11 and 6. This property was a great place for us to stay. From the central location we were able to do all the sightseeing we wanted to do and visit friends and family in the area. The apartment is very beautiful, with lots of color, handmade furniture, and interesting decor. It is clean, quiet, and we felt very welcome by the owner and his daughter. Our son slept in a loft in the bedroom with us and our daughter slept on a cozy window seat. A charming park is across the street. One evening we picked up food from a local grocery store and had a picnic in the park. Also there is a fantastic (though pricey) juice and natural foods restaurant across the street. We found many wonderful restaurants and convenient grocery shopping all within a few blocks. The apartment was a short walk to the subway and our many destinations. I highly recommend!
