The East Village is a lively neighborhood with a mix of many cultures, students, artists, and young professionals. There are tons of ethnic restaurants and varied assortments of shops to suit every taste.
The East Village attracts people not only for its diversity, but for its relatively affordable rents. The East Village is also known for its nightlife—a must see is Saint Mark's Place, which is famous for its many clubs, bars, cafes, and restaurants.
The area also boasts Tompkins Square Park, which has been renovated - residents love the renovated pathways and playgrounds.
This is my first experience of apartment rental on vacation, so I'm afraid I don't have any others to compare it to.
I was impressed that the owner met us at the apartment, showed us where everything was and left contact details in case we needed anything.
This was an "alcove apartment", as described in the listing. On first impression, the place was very clean. All the features listed were present - this was a perfect size for two of us. There were more than enough facilities to cook, a good size TV, WiFi (invaluable!), comfortable and clean bed, powerful shower, plenty of fresh towels, a big comfy couch and good air conditioning unit. The apartment is situtated at the back of the building, so VERY quiet, especially at night! No neighbor noise either!
The area is absolutely fantastic and suited us so well - subway stop is virtually on your doorstep, connecting with the rest of the city. Local restaurants are great (eat local!) and there are plenty of good shops too. Union Square is only about 10min walk. Also, there's a big grocery store directy opposite which seems to open 24hrs.
Overall, we were impressed with the apartment and especially with the location. We hope that we'll be able to visit again someday soon!! Thanks!!
first of all I would like to thank the Web site for having such of opportunities to chosse about it. In this case thanks to Benny and Rebecca for being confident with us in this process.
I would like to resume our stay in CONS & PROS.
Very good location, less than a block from subway station, less than 3 from Union Square, supermarket just in front everything is close.
The appartment is big enough for us, warmy, cozy and everything we need within. Bed and coach very confortable to stay.
I think the owner may invest a little on it. The handwasher in the bathroom has problem with the cold water (does not work), so after a few second all you may get is really hot water!. The TV has a remote control where "volumen or control channel" DO NOT WORK!, and after I spoke with Benny he told me, yes, that is right, you have to move to the TV and change it manually (can you imagine in XXI century?. That happens even though the TV is a FLAT TV Samsung with a Samsung remote TV. As I say, they may invest a little on this and paint the appartment and that is a great great deal!
I know they will do with this and after that, for sure we will be there again!
If you want to be in the middle of East Village, you couldn't do any better. Subway stop is right out the door! Grocery store across the street. Very cute apartment. The layout makes it feel spacious, even if the square footage is small. Big bathroom! The kitchen comes w/ all the gadgets you'll need. No coffee maker however, which I found strange, not even a french press. We had an issue w/ our stove, but the owner was right on it, no problem getting a hold of him. Great entertainment system. Only other issue is the window doesn't lock. And there is a fire escape right outside. Even a piece of 2x4 for a wedge would work. But the building was secure & seemed very safe. We had a great time & loved our little apartment. We would would definitely stay there again!
The building is located on 14 street between Ave A & 1st Ave.
The subway station ( L train 1st Ave) is right across the street. The L train cross town from East to West and Brooklyn. Only 1 stop from Williamsburg, and 2 stops from Union Square, 10 minutes walk.
The Supermarket is across the street ( Associated) open 7 days a week. Laundromat on 13 st & Ave A (closed on Sunday). In the neighborhood there is a vast selection of bars, cafes and restaurants. Cool lifestyle, very convenient and most important very safe.
