Why Ray Wick chose Upper West Side

This private, full-floor apartment is located in a private Owner occupied townhouse, not a large anonymous apartment building. Although you will be self-sufficient in your apartment, the Owner is always available to you for whatever you may need during your stay: tips on sites and getting around NYC, arranging taxi service, emergency repairs, restaurant advice. Much like a private concierge. The townhouse is safe and secure with multiple entry locks, fire & safety systems, well-lighted entry and stairways, outside video security. Your family can be assured of privacy, safety, cleanliness and convenience. The neighborhood is served by 5 Subways with the nearest only a 2 block, 2 minute walk. All destinations are only a few minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

Your private townhouse apartment will make you feel like your are returning home at the end of each day. Spacious enough to spread out and relax with all the conveniences of home: a fully equipped kitchen, high-def cable TV, free W-Fi, and, of course, big comfortable beds. Live your holiday like a successful New Yorker.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I have been to New York on several occasions and have stayed at hotels. Not only were the hotel rooms small, but the prices were steep. Because of this, I decided to rent an apartment. Ray's place far exceeded my expectations. Not only was it clean and comfortable, it was easy to access through public transportation. In addition, Ray was great about communicating with me and answering questions before my arrival.

My 20 year old son and I were greeted by Ray right outside the apartment. He quickly gave us a tour of the apartment and explained how everything worked. Ray even provided us a map that included the subway routes. We purchased a 7 day Metro Card for $30 and had no problem getting around the city. We even rode the train to New Jersey to attend a concert at MetLife Stadium. I also had the opportunity to get a run in a few blocks from the apartment. I asked Ray if there was a place where I could run. He directed me to Riverbank Park which was just a few blocks away. I ran a quick 4 miles and got some great pictures of the George Washington bridge. I never once felt threatened or scared while walking around the neighborhood even when my son and I were walking back to the apartment late at night after the concert.

On the day of departure, we met Ray to hand over the keys, and he offered to call a cab for us. We opted to ride the bus to LaGuardia airport from the apartment. It was a quick 2 block walk to the bus stop and one bus transfer to get there.

Our stay at Ray's apartment was such a pleasant experience. If I ever travel to New York in the future, I will definitely stay at his place again.

Customer 100% Satisfaction

I stayed at this apartment for 4 nights with my wife & 2 children (aged 16 & 12). Firstly the whole booking procedure was very easy with the owner (Ray) responding very promptly to all email enquiries.
Directions to the apartment were very clear & we found the place easily. We were met on arrival by Ray who provided a very comprehensive introduction to the apartment, the surrounding neighbourhood & to downtown Manhatten. He even gave us a mobile phone (pre-programmed with his number) in case we got into difficulties - please note we loved NYC & never once felt threatened.
The apartment was scrupulously clean, well appointed & generously sized. The photographs on the website don't really do the place justice, take our word for it the place is excellent.
The master bedroom is brilliant & the bed very comfortable. All the bed linen & towels were provided & were of very good quality. The local neighbourhood is full of all the things you need (grocery stores, take away food, cafes, banks etc). During the day it was busy & cosmopolitan. At night it was even more lively, with a large group of locals (both young & old) congregating on the corner to chat, sing, play music & fire up the BBQ. If you are looking for a quiet, romantic getaway this might not be the place for you but we loved it & we never ever felt anything other than 100% safe even quite late at night. The music outside went on until 11pm most nights but it was never so loud as to provide much nuisance. We really liked the flexibilty of the apartment (a seperate bedroom for the grown ups) & two additional beds in the living area so both our kids could have their own beds without having to share.
Travel into downtown Manhatten was very easy, the subway just 2 bocks away (5 mins walk) & we could be in Times Square in 15-20 mins. The 7 day Metro Pass - unlimited subway & bus travel (as recommended by Ray) is superb value.
Really we could hardly fault the apartment or its location. Ray was a fantastic host & certainly helped us get the most out of our stay. He was flexible in letting us arrive early on the first day to drop off bags so we were free to go explore the city. On out last day he helpful let us stay a wee bit longer while I went into town to organise some car hire. We really appreciated this flexibility & fely like Ray really valued our custom.
We would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this apartment to anyone thinking of visiting NYC (including friends & relations).

Owner's Response: My guests visited during the July 4 Independence Day week-end. There were neighborhood BBQs and street fairs all over the city. It is traditionally a noisy week-end.

The neighborhood is ordinarily quiet and family oriented. In fact, my apartment has often been used for romantic getaways, including weddings, birthdays, anniversaries.

NYC is an exciting city. Come enjoy everything!

We loved it and can't wait to stay here again

We loved it and can't wait to stay here again

We loved the apartment, and it was so nice to have Ray there too, he was very helpful. We loved the location of the apartment as well, we never had a bit of trouble with anyone in the area and it was so convenient to both the subway and metro stops. We enjoyed restaurants in the neighborhood and they stay open late. The apartment was beautiful and the beds were high quality. There is an abundance of linens and towels, we didn't need a thing. There is a grocery store 2 blocks away. After having stayed in Midtown in the past, I got much better sleep here in a quieter neighborhood. It is a quick trip into downtown in either a metro bus or on the subway. I can't wait to come back and will stay here again. Three women stayed here and we all felt safe here day and night. Our safety was never a concern. (try the restaurant around the corner, Trufa, you will not be disappointed ! )

Good choice

It´s a very good apartament, comfortable and very clean. Close to the metro station.
The neighborhood is safe but not nice. If the location is not an issue, this is perfect for your trip. Ray is a great man and always help with good tips and information.

Owner's Response: For most of my guests, this Manhattan Apartment is the ideal location, as dozens of reviews, here, indicate. If you are looking for an accommodation that is in the heart of Manhattan, near Times Square, in mid-town, in the hotel and tourist zone, then this is not the location for you. This Apartment is not in the hotel and tourist zone.

The Apartment is in Manhattan, in a genuine, quiet, friendly, NYC neighborhood. The neighborhood, Hamilton Heights, is especially known for it's elegant brownstone residences along leafy tree-lined streets. The area is especially desirable as it is an historical residential neighborhood that sits atop the highest point in Manhattan and offers expansive views of Harlem to the east and the Hudson River to the west. The neighborhood, although within Manhattan, is in a very convenient residential location without the high-rise office tower / retail / commercial and tourist distractions of mid-town. It allows the visitor to "live like a New Yorker" — to experience NY like a local. The quality of life of Hamilton Heights draws many actors, artists, teachers, and other professionals.

The neighborhood is served by 5 Subways and is very convenient to all the tourist sites throughout Manhattan within just a few short minutes. The nearest Subway is a 2-3 minute walk from the Apartment. It is the #1 Broadway Subway. It is a main line and goes right down the middle of Manhattan all the way to the southern end of the island with no need to transfer. This Subway line travels the length of Central Park (about 6-8 minutes away), through Times Square (about 10-12 minutes away), through Greenwich Village, Chelsea, Canal Street to Chinatown, Ground Zero, Wall Street and Battery Park to the Statue of Liberty. From the #1 Subway Line most tourist sites are within easy walking distance.

And, as most reviewers say, “The perfect location.”

Just like the photos!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay. Ray was a great host, taking time on our first night to give us a great overview of New York and the neighbourhood. Staying in the neighbourhood gave us a better NYC experience than staying in a hotel closer in. We rode the trains all over the city and enjoyed good food in the local restaurants.
The apartment was just like the photos. After walking all day around NYC it was great to come back to home base and get a great night's sleep.
I've already recommended this apartment to our friends thinking of visiting NYC.
We hope to be back! Thanks Ray for helping to make our stay in NYC very memorable.
We did all the big tourist things but the city kept surprising us - seeing Adam Levine in SOHO, ran into Eugenie Bouchard (Canadian Tennis champion) in Times Square, amazing dinner at a speakeasy - La Esquina - experience was as great as the food, had to ride bikes in Central Park, Mowtown the Musical was a great story to see, Katz's deli - had to see it. NYC Pass and Hop On Hop Off worked really well - as did having a 7 day Metro Pass for public transit. Ray's tip to take the Staten Island ferry to see the Statue of Liberty and the city from the water was great. We also did that on the Clipper as part of our CityPass - very nice.

We hope to be back!
