Right from the start the owner responded quickly by email to all my questions. Perfect for five girlfriends celebrating major birthday milestones. Sleeping accomodations were ideal, and the spaciousness of all the rooms was more then we expected. Great to come home late at night and all gather in the living room to talk about our day. We felt very safe and walked everywhere as the apt is located in the middle of either direction we were headed. Great bagel store on the corner and most delicious pizza at Vezzo's all reccomendations of the owner. Best experience of any stay we have had in NYC.
