A perfect stay in Greenwich Village
We stayed in Joan's apartment for the whole of August, and it's hard to describe just how much of a unique gem her place is.
First of all, the location: we roamed around the whole of Manhattan during our time in NYC and we always found ourselves gravitating back to Greenwich and the West Village. So being able to stay right in the heart of this area was perfect for us. There are lots of nice coffee shops, restaurants and bars within walking distance, and the transport is great as well -- you can get to anywhere in Manhattan or Brooklyn with ease from the various metro stations a short walk away.
The apartment itself is beautiful, warm and cosy, and despite its compact floorplan, the high ceilings mean it feels very spacious. More importantly, it is brimming with character, with all sorts of interesting furniture, cute ornaments, magazines and great music. We felt as though we were staying in a real home, which added hugely to our experience. The building is a traditional brownstone, which means you feel like you're getting the authentic NYC experience. We particularly enjoyed sitting out on the steps with our coffee watching all the adorable dogs go by.
All in all we really felt like we'd been temporarily transplanted into a wonderful New York life during our stay at Joan's, and are missing her apartment so much already. We really hope we'll be able to come back someday!
