To say that this property has a great location is really an understatement... the location is simply fabulous for those wanting to get a real taste of New York City. This was my seventh trip to New York and by far the best area to stay in. It's just a quick subway ride away from the glowing lights and hustle and bustle of Times Square but without having to navigate that hectic area daily. There were also many shops and places to eat, either elegant or casual, within a block or two of the apartment. The best is that Central Park, which I never tire of, was visible as soon as you exited the front steps. Add being a block from The Museum of Natural History, blocks from the beginning of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, AND having a private, home-like residence, that felt safe and this location really is the perfect place to stay. No location could possibly be perfect but the owners were receptive and helpful, despite the busy season.
