This was our first trip to New York with our 2 teenage sons (14 & 17). The apartment was fantastic, roomy & comfortable and had everything we needed. Checking in and out went smooth and we were graciously accommodated with a late check in and and late check out as well. The location of the apartment is incredible, you can walk to almost anywhere from there: Times Square, Central Park, Intrepid Museum... Really depending on how much walking you want to do you may not need taxis or subways. Can't say enough good things about this apartment. Worth every penny !
