The room is very private since your bedroom is not directly located next to mine. Unfortunately, your bedroom faces a brick wall but at least it's very quiet and you won't hear the traffic noise. The area is super fun, close to bars, restaurants and stores. Central Park is only 4 blocks away and Times Square is about 15 min walking distance. Oh and I have a very small but non-barking dog :-) The breed is called King Charles Cavalier, in case you want to know what kind of dog to expect.
