THIS AREA HAS NOT BEEN AFFECTED BY THE STORM. WE ARE HAPPY TO ACCOMMODATE YOU
Guys Gaby here to get a feel how close we are look at the video
Please don't be put off by this listing being outside of Manhattan. We are closer to Midtown Manhattan, Times Square, Theater District, Madison Square Garden, Grand Central Empire State Building, Saint Patrick's Cathedral, and Rockefeller Center than staying in other parts of Manhattan (Wall St., Upper East or West Side, above 70s... We are closer than all parts of Brooklyn and definitely way closer than staying in Queens/Bronx).
Newly decorated private apt. in Union City, NJ. Union City is on the other side of the Lincoln Tunnel and therefore very close (15 min. bus ride) to Port Authority / Times Square area. The best value for your dollar this independent Airbnb private luxurious apt. is simply a great commute, and your best choice to NYC. 2 miles from Port Authority, 2 miles to Madison Square Garden (MSG), 2.2 miles to Times Square, and 2.3 miles to Empire State Building. Other nearby points.

* Real queen bed, very comfy and cozy
* Spacious house
* Original wood floors
* Free WIFI
* Includes all linens, blankets, towels and pillows
* Private kitchen and bathroom
* House is on street level so there are no stairs to walk up
ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
* Located in Union City, NJ, a very short direct bus ride to Times Square area
* Five blocks from gorgeous Manhattan views (along Hudson River)
* Best 'cafe con leche' in town on corner. You'll wonder why you spend so much at Starbucks!

* Easy city bus access to Jersey Garden Outlet Mall, much closer and as good as Woodbury Commons.
Great energy and very peaceful! Feel free to message me with any questions!
hi guys this is for the parking permit, in order for you to be able to park in the neighborhood without getting tickets for not being a resident. This is a complimentary pass. We charge a deposit for the mere reason that the parking permits cost money and some guests don't return them.
Also this is only for legal parking; you must be vigilant of clean-sweep days or places like yellow lines where you will be summonsed for which we won't be responsible for any ticket given to you, other than residential which you won't get while exhibiting your pass in window. thank you
I had a great stay at this apartment. It was clean and looks exactly like the photos. Gaby was very welcoming and sweet. I had zero complaints during my stay. I would come back again.
Overall, not the best but you get an ok place for the money. I arrived the keys were not in the mailbox as I was told. I had to go to the hosts house and wait for her husband to yell at their son to find the keys. I asked for a parking pass and was told there is a $50 deposit. I accepted, then was told they had to find the parking pass and they would give it to me in a few hours. I never received the pass. As far as the apartment goes, the pictures make it look like a beautiful place with granite and tile backslash. Yes those are there, but it is a small apartment located underneath the main house. There is a slight smell when you walk in but it goes away inside. It was clean for the most part and there were clean towels on the bed. The bright side was Gabby was very nice. All in all its an ok place for the money but I don't think I'd stay again.
Amazing stay! Thank you Gaby & Robert! So close to everything. Transportation was the easiest and best thing about this great location.
It was very easy to get in touch with Gaby and she was very accommodating. The apartment was clean, comfortable and in a very safe neighborhood. "10 min" description is not very accurate (unless you are using a helicopter) - on average it took us over 30 minutes to get to NYC. Overall price to value is a bit high, because of a longer (and costly) commute to NYC.
My experience staying at this place was very pleasant! From the moment we walked in the apartment we felt so at home. Everything is very clean with very comfortable beds.
Getting around the area wasn't hard as it seemed. I mostly used (website hidden) maps to look for nearby places. I found a couple of stores around the area not that far. The area itself was very safe and peaceful.
Gaby and Robert were really informative and great hosts! Were there to answer any questions. Very quick to response! They were able to make my stay such a great experience, I believe.
Overall i really enjoyed my experience staying at this place. Even though I had to leave earlier then I originally planned too, I highly recommend anyone looking for a place to stay to stay at Gabys and Roberts! I Would definitely love to come back whenever possible.
A notre arrivés Robert nous a super bien accueilli il nous a fait visiter le quartier et nous a fait découvrir une superbe vue sur Manathan ! L'appart etait au top ! Confortable et sécurisant. Quartier calme et acces rapide à NYC en 10min avec le bus... Rien à redire sur le voyage tout etait parfait ! Merci Gaby and Robert !!!!!
This was the first time for us „using“ Airbnb and we are absolutely positive amazed. The contact with Gaby&Robert was very nice and everything worked out perfectly. Starting with guidance how to get to the apartment, picking up the keys and more hints & tips. The apartment was clean, nicely arranged and provided everything we needed and as expected. We felt (coming from Switzerland) safe walking through the neighborhood and to jump on the bus to Manhattan. Just as an example: we packed our rental car, as we were going to visit friends in Boston and forgot a bag (with all passports) on the sidewalk – a neighbor picked it up and handed it to Gaby&Robert. Getting to Manhattan was also a very easy. The bus stop is in close walking distance and you will never wait any longer than 5 minutes to catch a bus to Manhattan. We can absolutely recommend the apartment and would like to thank Gaby&Robert.
