About the property

Spacious Luxury Condo directly across the river from Manhattan. Seven minutes by bus to Times Square, the heart of NYC. Directly across the street, over twenty bus lines available every 5 mins.

The unit is on the 12th floor in a recently built luxury condo. The apartment boast an expansive, direct and unobstructed view of Manhattan, from the living room, balcony and bedroom. You won't miss a thing! There is a spacious master bedroom ideal for two people, and an office which I have converted into a small second bedroom for one person or children.

Don't be fooled because this listing being outside of Manhattan. This unit is closer to Midtown Manhattan, Times Square, the Theater District, Madison Square Garden, Grand Central, the Empire State Building, Saint Patrick's Cathedral, and Rockefeller Center than staying in other parts of Manhattan (Wall St., Upper East or West Side). This unit is closer than all parts of Brooklyn and definitely way closer than staying in Queens or the Bronx. Check the map.

Also, you can't get NYC views like this anywhere in NYC.


private balcony with breathtaking NYC views, new hardwood floors, 1.5 bathrooms, private office with extra bed if needed, cable TV (optimum), wireless internet, rooms furnished with new linens, washer/dryer in unit, two large flat screen TVs, doorman, small gym, resident lounge area with pool table, and one indoor parking space.

*Best for three adults or a couple with children

Amazing Place with Amazing Views

  • 4 of 5

Overall, great location, but a few insights for travelers.

1. Absolutely use the local bus, as it saves you significant money traveling to and from New York. The bus returning back from the station in Times Square runs until 1am, so you have plenty of time to travel to and from. No need to rent a car, as you can get pretty much anywhere you need to see using the subway and buses.

2. Shop at the Organic food market a few blocks away, and not the Walgreen's

3. Neighborhood is very safe, but does not offer much for local entertainment or places to eat. I would recommend Hoboken, as they also have BYOB at some fabulous restaurants.

4. Recommended for couples

5. Figure your travel route from LaGuardia or JFK by transit, as an UBER to this place is about $80USD.

Overall, great experience at Jamaal's residence. After an initial concern around previous guests leaving their food behind, Jamaal was amazing to help rectify the situation, and offer a mutually beneficial recommendation. Would deal with Jamaal every time I rented on VRBO if possible, and really appreciated the stay.

Everything was great, but the view over Manhattan and Hudson River is absolutely exceptional - that made me and my wife spend most of our time on the balcony!

Jamaal is very friendly, the building has a friendly doorman, there are stores and restaurants within walking distance - same for the bus stop; $3 per person and in a few minutes you are in the heart of Manhattan.

This experience exceeded our expectations.

Beautiful Condo with Gorgeous NYC Skyline View

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing one week stay in this condo. It was clean, neat, safe, and very welcoming. Our first impression was of the elegant lobby and a friendly greeting from the helpful doorman. Once we entered the condo, our first word was, "Wow!" as the city skyline was front and center on display. The master bedroom is huge, and the second, smaller bedroom was a wonderful convenience. It truly was a luxury to have two bathrooms and room to spread out. Our main goal was to explore New York, and this apartment's proximity to the city made it very easy. Everyday we walked a short distance and hopped on a reliable bus and were in Midtown within 15 minutes. The owner was gracious, and very responsive to any questions we had. The guest book was invaluable, and be sure not to miss the restaurant menus in the kitchen! We would return to this rental in a heartbeat.

Wonderful view from comfortable luxury apartment in convenient location

  • 5 of 5

Wow, this place was the perfect spot for our recent visit. First, you will get an incomparable view of NYC that is absolutely STUNNING. You can see virtually all of the western Manhattan skyline from this comfortable, spacious apartment. From morning views to evening sunsets and night views, it *never* fails to impress.

The 2-bedroom apartment was the perfect layout for us, with two adults and one child. This is definitely a luxury building with high quality appliances, fixtures, floors and more. Three elevators meant we never had to wait for a ride down to the lobby. The heavy windows and doors block out exterior noise while offering gorgeous views. Very nice to have the other half bath when the main bath was occupied. We took advantage of the full-sized fridge and freezer for snacks, etc. While we didn't cook much, you definitely could if you wanted! The high-definition, wall mounted TV and high speed internet and laundry machines in the unit were fantastic conveniences. If you've ever lived in NYC or visited the area, you'll appreciate how much space there is in this apartment! We didn't feel cramped a bit.

From the minute we arrived until we left, the staff in the lobby were *incredibly* helpful with all sorts of questions we had about food deliveries, guest parking, taxi service to airport, etc. Super nice folks. There is a Walgreens on the same block, which was perfect when we needed basic items of any sort. Palermo's Bakery is close by as well, and has amazing breakfast pastries and desserts.

Major plus: location, location, location. Located at the Park Avenue stop just outside Lincoln Tunnel, you are literally only a few minutes from Mid-town. SO convenient. There are vans that run every few minutes just around the corner, and you can get a quick trip into NYC for just $3 per person. Fast, affordable and the drivers/passengers were all very friendly!

Lastly, I would like to thank Jamaal, the owner of this fine apartment. He is a great communicator prior to, during and after your visit. We have had many VRBO experiences, and this ranks as one of the best. Thanks Jamaal!

Jamaal was very professional and flexible on our check in and check out. The apartment was immaculate and the views were amazing. The unit had all necessary items in place and washing machine/dryer in unit for use.

Photos are identical to the apartment itself. We would definitely stay in this location and apartment again.

Thanks for hosting us Jamaal.

Wonderful stay! View of NYC Skyline was stunning

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this beautiful condo! Lobby and doorman Carlos were very welcoming. Condo was spotless and master bedroom and bath very luxurious.

The shuttle to NYC was a block away, and available 24/7 for $3. Can't beat this place for access to Manhattan or the view!!!

Owner was very responsive to setting up the dates and meeting me with for rental.

Definitely going to stay here again.
