Fantastic location in the heart of SoHo less than one block to the A,C,E subway station at Spring and short walk to the 6. A few short stops to World Trade Ctr site, Battery Park, harbor, Ellis Island, Statue of Liberty cruises. Easy access to theater district, Central Park, restaurants, clubs, fun! Walk to the Village, Tribecca, photo district. It is all within a short walk or subway ride. Closest airport is Newark but Kennedy and La Guardia are not much further. On a tight budget? Take the A from Kennedy!
One 'heads-up': I would feel terrible if I did not mention that, because the apartment is in a great location, above restaurants, it can be noisy in the living room. The bedroom is pretty quiet but, especially if you are not from a big, loud city, be prepared that it can be noisy. It is not horrible but, it is NEW YORK CITY. If you or a colleague is planning to sleep on the fold out sofa, bring earplugs or sleep with an iPod. I sleep out there fine without either but, I must say, I sleep BETTER with earplugs! Really, I hope this does not scare you off but, I want to be honest!
