We stayed for a few days last week - my wife and I and our two teen-aged children. Our visit was terrific. We enjoyed the space of the large bedroom with a huge closet. The kids were comfortable with the pull out full size bed and the pull out twin bed in the living room. Having the washer-driver helped us pack lighter knowing that we could wash clothes.
The subway is about a 5-7 minute walk.
Be informed that the subway expansion has created a major construction project on 2nd avenue right out the front door of the apartment. This wasn't a problem for us as they close down the work before bed time and don't start up again until 8ish in the morning.
