This apartment is independent, You will not be sharing if with anyone.
It is easier and faster to commute into the City from Union City than commuting from Brooklyn or Queens.
If you were to stay in the Bronx it would take you 40 min to get to Times Square. If you were to Stay in Brooklyn it would take you the same amount of time as subways in Brooklyn are not direct. If you were to stay in Manhattan you would not find a place as big as this one for this price.
The apartment is located in a safe neighborhood, close to shopping and restaurant area.
The apartment is located within a 3-min walk to a bus stop the bus will take you to Times Square district in approximately 15 minutes (Important: Bus to Times Square costs $3 each way and bus tickets cannot be used for subway) NJ transit bus tickets cost $27 for 10 one way tickets. The bus will take you to Port Authority 42nd St subway station (lines A, C, E). This station is a central subway hub and you can easily walk to lines 1, 2, 3, 7, N, Q and R. (Important: Subway tickets cost $2.5 per ride but you can buy 7-days unlimited pass at $29).
I do not recommend buying the unlimited pass as Port Authority is central and you can walk to all major tourist attractions.
It is like an independent house located in the back of a garden.

I really liked staying at this apartment. You can't beat this price in combination with the convenient and fast access to Manhattan! The apartment is small but just right for our needs, as you don't spend too much time in it anyway. The bed was super comfortable. The only thing that comes into my mind is that you can't close the shower door properly so we always had to watch out to not spill the water on the bathroom floor. But I didn't mind that too much since we've only been here for 3 nights.
Thank you for staying at your apartment - it was a pleasure :)
The room is as described. The neighborhood is certainly not as fancy as Manhattan, but nearby restaurants and supermarket are really convenient. Nice place to stay.
Excellent séjour, appartement parfaitement conforme à la description. Le quartier est vivant et bien desservi par les bus. Le trajet pour New York est simple et rapide (15-20min). Pas de nuisances sonores dans l'appartement. Miyoko nous a donné toutes les informations nécessaires avant l'arrivée. Nous la remercions pour son hospitalité !
Miyoko 's house is very good, clean and comfortable. We went to New Jersey to visit some cities and Miyoko's place fit perfectly in my demands. She is very helpful and she answered all my doubts. I enjoyed so much my stay in her house.
The apartment was quaint, two floors with one double bed and one fold out couch upstairs with one more downstairs. Its location was great, we caught the 154 NJ Transit bus from right outside the door to the Port Authority everyday (except on Sunday when the 154 does not run). However, these buses have a tendency to be late (usually 15 minutes) and it is not great when you have to wait for it in the cold snow.
The local area was great, there were many restaurants/fast food places and there were numerous hispanic supermarkets around which made food quite accessible.
The house however was extremely small and I would not recommend having more than 3 people stay at one time. The heating was also quite weak, with downstairs being extremely cold in the winter. There is no kitchen, let alone a sink, which made cooking small dishes and washing the dishes extremely tough. Furthermore, the cold water stopped numerous times - causing the tap water to be very hot and the toilet unable to automatically flush.
Despite these setbacks, the place was in a great location and in a safe neighbourhood just across the bridge and at its low price it was good value for our stay in New Jersey/New York.
Very nice place. Close to bus stop, groceries, theatre and easy to commute to new York.
