Beautiful view of the city from the front porch and super convenient short walk to the Staten Island ferry for a free ride to Manhattan. The walk is well lite and completely safe. I have stayed at this gorgeous apartment several times, sometimes with family and sometimes by myself for work. I have returned late at night from a Broadway show and feel very safe walking back (and you even pass by the police station). During inclement weather, bus stop is right on the corner and can take you to and from the ferry.
Robin keeps the apartment stocked with all kitchen and bathroom supplies needed. A grocery store either a nice walk or first stop on the Staten Island Railway. Get your unlimited ride Metro card and have the time of your life in the Big Apple!
