We just returned from NYC where our family (Mum, Dad, boys aged 15 and 13) stayed in apartment 2F.
First off, the position is awesome. The subway (# 6 train) is two blocks away at 97th st station. There are two supermarkets, two or three huge pharmacies and multiple restaurants, bars and take-out places within about a block. Central park is 4 blocks away and the entry is at the Jackie Onassis lake level about another 10-20 minute walk from the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim.
The building is clean, with an elevator (lift). The apartment we stayed in was on Floor 2 but was not overly noisy despite facing East 97th Street. There is major construction next door and across the road but this also did not affect us. The rooms are reasonably sized (queen bed easily fits) and the appliances that are there work well and seem pretty new. The shower / bath was terrific with good water pressure and ample hot water.
Areas that could be improved include one major thing - the apartment is really bright and has no black out blinds or curtains. There is a sheer blind that stops prying eyes looking in, but in Summer the sun comes up early and we had to sleep with airline masks. Minor improvements in available storage for clothes and everyone's bits and pieces, and more cooking utensils would be good but no deal breaker.
The host, Jennifer is really helpful and communicative. She provides a list of local eateries including enThaice which was terrific.
If you are in NYC for a length of time then you will feel right at home here. We did.
