3 of us stayed in this apartment for a week in August 2013. It is gorgeously decorated, spacious, has everything you need and is in a funky area with character. It is very easy to get to this flat if you are coming from La Guardia--a bus ($2.50) takes you within 2 or 3 blocks. When we got there the owner met us and showed us around. He also recommended restaurants and a grocery store and told us where the subway was (also 2 or 3 blocks away).
We had stayed in an apartment in NYC before--close to Times Square, but this one was less expensive, quieter, bigger and had more amenities. The beds were super comfortable and we were thankful for the air-con whenever we got home.
We bought a week-long subway pass and used it and used it and used it. It is so easy to get anywhere on the subway and easy to get to this flat (by the 125th Street station). The area has character and we loved it. We would stay in this apartment and this area again. more
