  • Jennifer war mir von Anfang an sehr Sympathisch. Sie war bei allem hilfsbereit, genau wie ihr Bruder. Sehr angenehm ist, dass die Schränke voll mit essen/frühstück sind (von Salz bis Zahnpasta, Kaffee bis Marmelade alles war da, mehr wie im Hotel)
    Die Umgebung ist schön, man wohnt mitten in Brooklyn und sehr sicher. Die U-bahn ( Pennsylvania Station) oder Bus sind 2 blocks entfernt, damit kommt man überall hin. Ich empfehle eine unlimited ride card zu kaufen.

  • La estancia en fue una maravilla, Jennifer y su familia muy atentos y pendientes de cualquier cosa que nos hiciera falta.
    La casa es amplia, equipada con todo lo necesario, calefacción, utensilios de cocina, baño, habitaciones, en general todo.
    La casa esta mas que preparada.
    También tuvo el detalle de dejarnos desayuno para todos los días, zumos, leche, aperitivos, etc.
    El metro esta a 5 minutos andando, tienes 2 lineas, y es fácil la conexión con el centro de Manhattan.
    Sin duda un lugar para repetir en nuestro próximo viaje a NY.
    Muchas gracias Jennifer , Wendell, y tu madre, nos sentimos como en casa.
    Una experiencia fantastica
    Gracias

  • We had a great time in Jennifer's apt! She had food for us to eat. We ate breakfast there every morning. When we had questions she was there to answer them.

    December 2013
  • When we arrived very late after a bunch of delays in our flight we got a very warm welcome by Jennifer's brother. The warm welcome made us feel right at home, even in such a big city as New York. The apartment was very clean and tidy and very spacious. Another thing we liked were the snacks, bread and drinks that were left behind for us to consume. Because we arrived so late at night we didn't have any time to go to the supermarket, so having food already provided for us was really handy. There are also 2 subway stations very close to the apartment building which makes transportation to Manhattan or anywhere else in New York easy. Other than that I can say that we very much enjoyed our time in New York and we thank Jennifer and her family for making our stay such a success. We recommend staying here in this apartment to any one who wants to have a good time in NY!!!
