We really liked this beautiful apartment. It is as it looks I’m the photos, feels luxurious and the bed is soft and floaty. I loved the church lined street and great food deli down the road with collard greens, that’s Jacobs, and an excellent deli...More

About the neighbourhood
Experience New York City like a local in a great hip neighborhood with trendy bars and restaurants. The flat is in a great location (15 minutes by metro/subway to Times Square), in a safe and quiet neighborhood on a tree lined street. The location is perfect because it allows you to see Broadway plays and musicals, go to a music concert, explore the city and all the tourist attractions and come back to a quiet and peaceful flat to unwind after a long day. There are only three flats in the building and the neighbors are friendly, so there is never a problem dealing with loud or noisy neighbors. If you don't feel like going to midtown to see the tourist sites, pick up some food or pack a picnic bag and rent a bike or take a 15 minute walk (or a five minute metro/subway ride) to the top of Central Park and explore one of the truly great parks in the world. Depending upon the timing of your visit, you can see great concerts in the park, plays such as Shakespeare in the park or just people watch or bird watch, see if you can spot the eagles that habit the park or just sit by one of the pools and just enjoy the day. Alternatively, stroll around Harlem and see some great architecture or go on a house tour or visit the Apollo Theater. There's too many things to do to list them all. Whenever you are ready to see the tourist sites and other parts of the city, take a five minute walk from the flat to the nearest metro/subway (Red Line # 2 & # 3) or a 10 minute walk to other nearby metro/subway stations ( Green Line # 4, # 5 and # 6), (Blue Line A and C ) and (Orange Line B and D ). Other ways to get around are taxis, the local buses, the Metro North Railroad and if driving, there is easy access to the highways including the FDR, West Side Highway, Triboro bridge, I-87 and I-95, Harlem River Drive and the George Washington Bridge. Grocery/Supermarket (open until 11pm nightly), drugstore/pharmacy, laundry are within three blocks (about a 5 minute walk) from the flat. There are many restaurants and cafes nearby to suit most budgets and food preference. Most are within a 10 minute walk from the flat so there are many options, whether it is just to get a cup of really great coffee in the morning or a great meal in the evening. The two most famous neighborhood restaurants are Red Rooster where President Obama has dined and Sylvia's soul food. Other area restaurants feature French, Japanese/Sushi, Spanish/Tapas, Indian and American cuisine.
