A friendly and safe district
We stayed in this apartment for 6 nights while we did New York City. Two parents and 3 older teenagers fitted-in fine. It was hot weather so the AC and fans were much appreciated and worked great in the evenings. The location is perfect, you are between two streets filled with shops, restaurants and bars, but in a Dead End so there is no street noise. We saw people actually arriving in taxis from other parts of New York to enjoy the facilities we could walk to! You share the entrance way to the apartment with the other building occupants and it is cluttered with push-chairs, bikes and the like, but we felt that gave the place character, we noticed no smells! The apartment itself is exactly as pictured, if you want fancy carpets and wall-coverings this is not the place for you, but if you want to live like a New Yorker in a great neighbourhood, then don't think of staying anywhere else. The subway is no distance and the trains are frequent. The kitchen has everything and if you wanted to cook you could do anything and buy all the ingredients from shops minutes away. The TV is big and WiFi works well, better than some hotels we stayed in in upstate New York later that holiday. There is a bit of noise in the morning from people going to work, school and the like, but you need to be up promptly anyway to make the most of New York, so it doesn't matter. There is no late night noise - we were never disturbed, the beds we thought were really comfortable and OK there is only one bathroom, but if you are a family then you can manage fine. There is plenty of hot water and the shower is good - the drainage is a bit dodgy, but that is more to do with the age of the building and neighbourhood, rather than just this place. Lee is very pleasant and professional to deal with and interested in what you are doing. In summary, if you are a family who want to do the sights of New York whilst living like a New Yorker in a really nice neighbourhood, don't think of looking anywhere else. If we come again we shall try to stay here.
