We wanted to do a family vacation with our two almost-grown boys and explore New York. The apartment we rented was perfect. Everything was clean, ready, and "as promised" when we arrived. The upper east side Yorkville area peaceful and pleasant, as well as being close to many restaurants. We recommend the Thai food a block and a half away on First. Plenty of places to drink coffee, too. The subway is reasonably close and the 6 line can get you virtually anywhere you want to go. All in all a wonderful vacation in the perfect place. I would do it again without hesitation and recommend the apartment as ideal. Did I mention it is an easy jaunt over to Central Park?
