About the neighbourhood
If you’re looking for extra elbow room in Manhattan, head 15 minutes north of midtown to hip and less-dense Washington Heights. Although it requires a 15 minutes subway ride to reach this great uptown escape, the neighborhood’s community feel and plainspoken demeanor make it a great place for visitors looking for value. Want more from Washington Heights? It’s also home to a thriving Dominican populace, and this neighborhood’s local fare is truly something to savor.
Getting around
The 175th Street Express A train is a one minute walk from my apartment. The famous A train, from Duke Ellington's song 'Take the A train', runs express through Manhattan and will take you to all of the major sights to see in NYC.
Car not needed
How to get there
In some cases, private transport to / from airport can be arranged with my personal car.

Please ask me about the different public transportation options for getting from NYC airports to my home.

The A express subway lies at our doorstep and takes you to midtown Manhattan in just 15-20 minutes. The 1 train train is just a few blocks away for local stops. With a variety of buses on Broadway, you can quickly traverse the city and get to most of the major landmarks and venues within minutes.

If you are interested, I can provide suggestions about where to go and what to do on a budget in New York.

Come to New York! I would be honored to have you as my guest!
