This Place Has It All!
We stayed here with another couple this past week and had the vacation of our lives. We are used to vacationing in tropical locales so this was a total change of venue for all of us. We couldn't have picked a better place. It was homey yet modern and was so easy to locate anything we needed. The windows, light, and view kept us from feeling cramped or boxed into a tiny place with a wall for a view that we would have had in the city. Our only wish was that we had gone when the weather was warmer to try out the great rooftop deck and pool. The gym we did try out and it was very well equipped. The store across the street and wine and spirit store just over from Food Cellar was a huge bonus. Since all of our basic needs were met and more, it was very easy to head out and explore New York. The directions to the subway were specific and clear and once we were there, in a few short minutes, it was a matter of a few more minutes to get to the city or to any other neighborhood we felt like checking out. What we hadn't anticipated was how much we would like the neighborhood of LIC. Two blocks to several excellent restaurants. There is a French restaurant right by the subway line that was amazing along with Alobar down Vernon Street a few blocks the other way. We started and ended our stay with the Alobar. The Corner Bistro was warm and very friendly and the LIC Bar had some great atmosphere. The best tips we received were from the reviews from this website, waiters, bartenders, and our tour guide. We went on a 9 hour tour two days after we arrived to give us an overall view and we took all sorts of suggestions from people we met. Yes, we did the carriage ride in Central Park, went all the way to Coney Island so we could touch the Atlantic Ocean(we are from the Pacific Ocean), took in the Jersey Boys on Broadway(super!) and just tromped through all the different neighborhoods in Manhatten, Brooklyn, and Queens. We also met scads of people on the subways who were SO helpful and friendly! The notion of New Yorkers being rude was thrown out the window. The end result is that we ate our way through New York, never experiencing a bad meal, met lots of wonderful people, saw countless sites, and always had a great place to unwind. Whew, this just made me tired recounting everything! We would all recommend this place without hesitation. The few times we needed some help, Dahlia was always very attentive. Thank you Dahlia!
