I'd recommend this rental to anyone visiting NYC.
A nice little apartment, very clean and decorated in a rustic style with everything you might want (kitchenette, tv, cable (no wi-fi, but you might be able to pick up a neighbours), however it won't really be comfortable for any more than two people, three would be stretching it.
There's a single bed in the only bedroom with an ensuite (the only bathroom in the apartment), and a large double sofabed in the lounge.
The apartment is located on the 4th floor of a building on a very leafy street in the West Village. Extremely pretty neighbourhood, I'd say that staying at this location improved my impressions of New York a hundred-fold. :)
There are tons of nearby pubs/bars (The White Horse...) and restaurants (The Spotted Pig, Little Owl...)
The apartment is close to banks, little corner shops, and a largish gourmet supermarket. Plenty of little cafes abound, some actually serve decent coffee (try Jacks Stir Coffee, Joe the Art of Coffee, The Grey Dog...). Magnolia Bakery is around the corner for those interested in cupcakey goodness (they're a bit too rich for my tastes).
The rest of Manhattan is close by. Just a walk down the road to the Financial district, East Village a quick stroll across the way. Chelsea and Meatpacking district a short way northwards if that's your scene. Anything further is probably better to take the subway. Stations close by are Christopher Street (lines 1,2,3,) and W 4th Street (C,E, A & F,V).
I'd often take a run down to the tip of Manhattan (to see the sun rise over Brooklyn), along Hudson River Park and Battery Park (6 miles there and back in case you're interested).
So in summary, absolutely brilliant location, lovely little apartment, owner was a pleasure to deal with.
Tourists without a Car,
