This is a great apartment with a lot of New York charm. It's two short blocks from the subway, crawling distance to a number of good local restaurants, in the heart of an absolutely beautiful neighbourhood that tour groups regularly roam through. The bars can get a touch lively on Christopher Street on the weekend evenings, but it's fun to perch on the outdoor patio and watch the world go by. The subway rumble underneath the building is noticeable but not a big deal. The apartment was clean, had everything we needed, was a good size for New York and suited our family of two adults and 1 six year old to a T. It's very nice to be able to put your kid to sleep, then close the door and be able to read/talk/drink tea/watch TV/whatever in the other room. Owner is responsive, great to deal with and the damage deposit was quickly refunded. We would definitely stay there again.
