NY Moore is the place where you want to be!!! And this is not 100, this is 110%.
Let me start with: absolutely conveniently located in awesome Brooklyn - which definitely, totally, has surpassed Manhattan these days, to begin with. The Moore is situated right on the border between East Williamsburg and Bushwick, the up-and-coming neighborhood these days.
A formerly industrial neighborhood, artists have moved into the loft buildings, plenty of hip bars and eateries all over the place and right on the doorstep.
The Moore itself is in a former factory building, so the ‘rooms’ are huge - big enough to go skating or ride a bike in between the beds. Speaking of beds: as an experienced ‘hosteller’, you probably will expect bunk bedded dorms. Not at the Moore! Some of the dorms are made up of just queen size beds, others come mixed queen and twin (single) sized beds, and you will hardly find any bunks. They do have a few, maybe even just a couple. I did try to make them show me all of the dorms, and I did see quite a few, it wasn’t all of them, though. :)
The interior comes in a tasteful, artistic elegance - inspired, I want to say - and most rooms with a real good energy. The place is overall very clean and well maintained.
Manhattan - and, of course, you want to go there, that’s why you came to visit New York in the first place, isn’t it? - is, however, just a stone throw away. NY Moore is served by two train lines, both of their stops a five minutes’ (max!) walk away. The L train - catch it either at Montrose or Morgan Av’s - will take you straight to the Village (East, Washington Square, NYU, West), Chelsea, Gramercy, Flatiron,... - you name it! - within less than 15 mins, the JMZ lines will take you near the lower parts of the Lower East Side, Chinatown, Little Italy, Wall St/Financial District (J,Z) or into Midtown Manhattan (M) within 20 mins - and from there into Queens, if you so wish.
- What else? Staff and management are absolutely gorgeous, knowledgeable, friendly, sweet, caring.. they will find you the best possible bed on offer, they will provide you with any information you may possibly need, tons of which is freely accessible as it is - on the board, at the front desk,... maps, markets, museums, nightlife, gyms, yoga studios, zoos, botanical gardens,...
They’ll sell you sim cards and phones at special offer, umbrellas when it rains, at the front desk.
For Thanksgiving they would serve turkey sandwiches and potato salad for everybody.
The Moore is like home away from home. Or better. - ?? Be careful! You’ll never want to leave again. Or take it with you...
Did I say 110%? Was wrong. It’s a 10000, really!! :)))
