If this is your first time to visit New York, you’ll probably regret choosing the Verve as it’s not really in the centre of all the excitement. If however you are familiar with the city, you’ll be perfectly happy with the short subway ride into Manhattan with a choice of two or three lines that will get you anywhere you need to go. Actually what I appreciated most was probably Line F heading in the other direction, as it’s a direct route to JFK.
My room was large and comfortable, and great value, only $120 a night on a pre-Christmas weekend, which for NYC is a real bargain. Staff were friendly, breakfast was fine. View was of a large taxi cab parking lot, so a bit drab, but the area wasn’t in the least dangerous and I’m sorry I didn’t have more time to discover Queens.I thought I would check out some local restaurants, but between going to the theatre and shopping, I never did get around to it and spent all my time in Manhattan. Would certainly stay there again though.
