“Best place to stay in NYC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2011

Between the Parks is a cozy little BnB, conveniently located on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. Susan, the owner, is warm and inviting. Her knowledge of the city is very helpful for getting around an avoiding tourist traps. The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was lovely. My husband and I would stay there again in a heartbeat.

It was a complete pleasure staying at Between The Parks. Susan is a warm, considerate, lively and witty host with plenty of great ideas for things to do and see in the home city that she loves. The room she rents in her apartment is very comfortable, and the bed is super-comfortable with good ensuite. As for the location, well, it's in a pleasant leafy sidestreet, and extremely close to the 1 line which takes you up and down the west side of town -- good for the village and plenty of other places, such as Times Square and the charming oasis of Bryant Park -- from where you can take the frequent shuttle service to the east side, Grand Central, etc. Nearby shops are excellent, with an often astonishing range of food for picnics or snacks. They are also the source of the excellent bagels and croissants Susan procures each morning for breakfast, along with oranges for squeesing fresh juice. There's no cutting corners! If you're smart enough to get yourself a booking at Susan's, you'll be more than half way to having a great time in New York City.
