My wife & I, plus her sister & husband, spent a most enjoyable four days in this lovely apartment. Although I have been to Manhattan many times before for business and pleasure, I was not aware that such a fantastic neighborhood as Yorkville existed. Everything you may need, from grocery stores, wine shops and a fantastic selection of affordable restaurants and carry-outs, is within easy walking distance. Plus, the scenic walkway along the East River and Carl Schurz Park is not to be missed. The nighttime view of the lighted buildings and bridges is gorgeous, and the entire area felt very safe day and night, with local residents and families strolling about at all hours. And it doesn’t hurt that New York’s mayor is a neighbor at nearby Gracie Mansion! Yorkville seems more like a small town, than a part of the New York metropolis. Yet the Metropolitan Museum and Central Park are within just a few blocks walking distance. The apartment was very comfortable for two couples, complete with a well equipped kitchen, and being able to enjoy quiet time in an actual back yard in New York was a rare treat. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone visiting New York.
