“dangerous area”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2009

close to the bronx, I didnt feel myself secure. At night do not even try to go out!
the pictures of the apartment have nothing to do with the real ones... Extremly expensive.
Far away from downtown... taxi cost me 30 USD.

This guest change is plans and decided to leave. We could not refund and decided to write lies. We are in a very safe area half a block from the subway and 100 meters from the Jumel Morris Mansion Museum. 30 to 50 tourists walk our street every year.
