2nd floor 1 bedroom/1bath apt. Super easy access to Times Square via the 24/7 chicken bus which runs every 5 min, 24/7, every day. Comfortably sleeps 4 adults, very tight with 5. Strong wifi, kitchen. Family neighborhood, safe to walk at night. Ten-minute walk to the best NYC skyline views at historic Hamilton Park - you can see from George Washington Bridge in the north to Brooklyn Bridge in the south. Street parking permit on request, no reserved parking. No elevator. Walk to supermarket.
Two things to point out that some people have commented on:
** Outside of Manhattan, a very short 10-minute bus ride away and it's not part of the subway system, so it's a separate bus ride fare ($3). Outside of Manhattan so this apartment is not ideal for those guests that like to pop in and out of their place during the day.
** The neighborhood is very ethnically and economically diverse. If you prefer a more homogenous (some might say boring) neighborhood, then this will not be a good fit.
This is a bright and fresh one bedroom apartment on the second floor of a three-story building. You'll only have one set of stairs up from the street to climb.
The cozy bedroom has a queen-size bed, bedside table and lots of closet space. East facing window for a lovely breeze at night.
The living room has a sofa bed for additional sleeping spots. This apartment is great for two couples, will fit five (airbed) if you're close friends or family. It's crowded with four, really snug with five people, even if the fifth person is a small child.
One spacious bathroom with shower/tub combo and a full kitchen with a brand new fridge and gas stove. Plenty of space in cupboards for your things.
You won't need any keys for the apartment to come and go - just a secret code issued specifically for each booking. You will need a building key though!
Parking: Let us know in advance (48 hours) if you are driving in, as we’ll provide you with a visitor permit ($50 deposit, held until permit is returned )

Once the booking is complete I will email you additional details including options for travel from airport, bus stations, etc. When you arrive at the apartment you'll find an info binder with specific info on how to take the bus, where to go grocery shopping, cool places I love in the city, nice walks to see the view etc. It is important to me that you have a great vacation and a relaxing time, so don't worry too much about the small details as we will make sure you are comfortable with how things work so that you can have a stress free holiday.
Wood floors, so noisy for neighbor below. Please use house shoes inside.

* No smoking at all indoors, but you can smoke in the front outside area away from building door.
* Coin laundry in basement.
* Please - no food in bedrooms. It's very easy to stain linens with food spots, and then very hard to clean those linens. Also, it encourages pests, something we are very careful to never have! There is a kitchen with seating.
* Please remove all trash from apartment before check out.
* Check out by 11am, there is great baggage storage at Greyhound Baggage in Port Authority Bus Terminal near Times Square.
* Absolutely no downloading of copyrighted materials (no bit torrent, for example). Any copyright infringement by guest subject to release of guests info to copyright holder for further action.
We have a number of listings, so look for me online at superhostnyc. Each of our listings has very easy access into Times Square - we are big advocates of our local bus service which we call the "chicken bus". Buses run every 5 min, 24/7 to Times Square. Take a look at our guest reviews to see what travelers say about getting in and out of NYC. We are not agents, my husband, Jay and I take care of guests full time!
We are Canadians living in the US, and are well traveled ourselves and know how important a good nights sleep is while you're away.
We will make sure that you are comfortable here.
