I loved this apartment . The first thing you see are brightly colored flower pots full of green plants welcoming you to the house. The apartment we had was on the 3rd floor(really one flight of stairs) We loved the original wood inlay floors and decorative ceiling. The decor is light and comfortable. The air condition units work great but we had such great weather we only turned them on a a little. There is plenty of closet space and we were provided plenty of hangers to unpack our weeks worth if clothing.There is also an hairdryer provided and an iron & ironing board if you need to press anything. The apartment is also stocked with more than enough super plush towels and there is great water pressure in the shower. Althea the owner is an absolute gem! She was always available to answer our travel questions before we even got there and she stocked the apartment with so much information for things to do in NY and places to eat int he neighborhood. We didn't even need the travel guidebook I brought with me. We are a family of 4 so having 3 bedrooms was great to have our own down time. We watched tv some nights to unwind in the living room and had a kitchen for all our needs. However it turns out there are so many great places to eat in walking distance we never even cooked there! The subway is a very short walk and is across from Dunkin Donuts if you want a coffee to take with you.
