My wife and I stayed at Yuriy's property for a recent trip to NYC and had an excellent time! The West Village was the perfect 'home base' with a fantastic selection of cafes, shops, and bars right nearby. The location is also central to many of the tourist destinations in Manhattan (south of Times Square/Broadway; north of Little Italy and Chinatown), so walking everywhere was a breeze. The apartment itself was perfect for our needs, allowing us to cook breakfast each morning and relax in front of the TV in the late evenings. The street noise was a bit loud, but it didn't give either of us issues when sleeping. I definitely recommend this property to anyone looking to enjoy NYC and would highly consider staying in this same apartment on future visits.
