The Lodge offers the best of both worlds. A quiet, safe neighborhood while being the CLOSEST thing to the city (any closer we'd be IN the city)!

There are great restaurants and a handful of bars within walking distance. A 10 minute walk will bring you to PS1, a satellite museum of The Metropolitan Museum of Art (MoMA). It has great, funky pieces of art from cutting edge (website hidden)1 also host amazing summertime parties called "The Warmup Sessions" with international DJ's. A little further on is the Pulaski bridge connecting to Brooklyn.

Street parking generally opens up by 4pm. There are also parking lots within three blocks charging between $7-12 for the day.

We pride ourselves in going above and beyond for our guests. If we can accommodate you we will.
As the managing director of The Lodge, I'm always a flight of stairs away if needed. As a native New Yorker I can suggest places to go, things to do and point out cool little spots that only New Yorkers know about :).

Please feel free to contact with any questions you may have!

  • We had a great time att The Lodge and all six of us agreed that we couldn´t have picked a better place to stay. It was very clean and Aram is a great host. I will stay there next time I vistit the City without a doubt..The neighbourhood felt very safe och it was quiet at night. The subway is nearby and it really doesn´t take more than 5 min with the subway into the City, fifth Ave. I have visited The City (Manhattan) before, but always stayed at hotels. I will never do that again..Thank you Aram!

  • Wir waren zwei Erwachsene und vier Kinder.
    Das Apartment war sehr sauber und wirklich groß. Ideal für 6 Personen. Die Lage war auch super, nur zwei blocks von der Metro entfernt und 50m von einem kleinen Supermarkt in einer Tankstelle entfernt.
    Aram ist sehr angenehmer Vermieter, da er sehr zuverlässig und korrekt ist.
    Das war für uns mit Kindern extrem wichtig.
    Wir würden jederzeit wieder dieses Apartment buchen.

  • We found the Lodge to be a great base for our stay in New York. As described the transport links are great and close. And because you’re not in Manhattan but just outside you can find great views of Manhattan nearby. We recommend doing the walk over the Queensboro bridge at least once.
    The apartment is spacious, clean and tranquil. Aram was really helpful, giving us a full tour of the property when we arrived, and he has a good knowledge of local area and New York generally so could give us advice about things, particularly about music in the City.
    We hope to return!

  • The Lodge is fantastic! We had a wonderful stay there with plenty of space for four of us. We loved how close it was to the train station, super fast into midtown manhattan, and a very homely feeling when we came back with weary feet from big days out exploring New York. The amenities are fantastic, Aram was incredibly warm and helpful and he even let us leave our bags there after we checked out. I would highly recommend it and would definitely stay again!

  • We came from Israel to NY, and the 4 of us had a wonderful time at Aram's place for six days. Aram is a perfect host. He was there to answer all of our requests and questions. The apartment is very clean and cozy.
    The location is perfect. Only a few minutes from the city.
    We will defiantly come back and stay again at Aram's place the next time we're in New York.

  • Je recommande cette location, spacieuse et très bien placée : au calme et très bien desservie par les transports.
    Merci à Aram pour son accueil !

Full time music producer and dad. Big lover of spicy food and samba! Our place is clean, well maintained and well loved. We pride ourselves in catering to our guests and accommodating whenever possible. As the owner and managing director of The Lodge, my office is in the basement so I'm easily accessible. A native New Yorker, I can offer suggestions on where to go and what to do while you're here... which can be 24 hours a day!
