Amy was very welcoming and wes there to meet us when we arrived. The apartment was more than we expected - there was so much space and was so much more inviting and private than a hotel room. It was great to be able to prepare our own snacks in the well equipped kitchen, and to do quick catch-up holiday laundry! Importantly, the bed was super comfortable. The apartment is very close to delis and the subway and a short walk to Central Park. A great place to stay!
Our experience at this apartment was just fantastic and we would recommend it to anyone without hesitation. Amy was wonderful to deal with at all stages of the process. All of our initial enquiries were answered promptly and in a super friendly manner, and when we arrived we were warmly welcomed by Amy's brother Steven. The apartment was great: exactly how it is portrayed in the photos, and all of our questions were answered in a timely fashion. The neighbourhood is authentic and friendly, and we enjoyed travelling via the subway which was really close. I can't speak highly enough of our experience and we would return in a heartbeat.
Wir haben uns wohl gefühlt. Amy war gut erreichbar. In der Wohnung kommt man gut runter (Erholung). Es war ein sehr schönes Badezimmer.
Our stay at Amy's brownstone apartment was just amazing! Amy and Steven have the apartment all set up for you to enjoy your trip to the max without any worries. It was a treat to go back to the apartment after a busy day on NYC sightseeing. We will be going back. Thank you guys!
Amy's brownstone worked beautifully for our visit to NYC. The subway is only 2 blocks away and there's a very nice ethnic market very close by. We enjoyed preparing breakfast each morning before going out for the day. Amy and her brother Stephen were very welcoming ...
Amy was quick to provide responses to all our requests for information prior to our visit and showed care and concern that we would be able to manage two long flights of stairs with all our luggage. Her brother was there to welcome us and to introduce us to all the features of the apartment.
The apartment was very well described in the AirBNB advert and was extremely spacious, comfortable and well fitted out.
The neighbourhood was close to the subway and Central Park was only a 7-8 minute walk away. Access to all downtown amenities was excellent and a new neighbourhood restaurant (Mountain Bird) provided outstanding cuisine.
This place is amazing and is located in a very historic part of the city. It was great to unwind and relax after a few long days of walking around New York in a very spacious, comfortable and safe environment. The bathroom is incredible and everything looks brand new. Amy was able to help us out throughout our stay and was very repsonive. I wish we could have stayed longer and I know I'd love to go back.

About the Host, Amy
I am a third generation New Yorker. I love my city and have a great handle on all the neighborhoods. In fact I am a terminal tourist in my own city. I travel all over the world and enjoy exploring new places, returning to old ones and meeting new friends and eating all types of food.
