The Space

1 bedroom apartment in a 10 yr old house

PRIVATE, NO SHARING, you will be the only ones staying in it***


This lovely and nicely decorated apartment is located in North Bergen, NJ which it is only 4.6 miles away from Times Square. North Bergen is located on the other side of the Lincoln Tunnel and it is approximately 20 minutes away from TIMES SQUARE AREA/MIDTOWN MANHATTAN/PORT AUTHORITY BUS TERMINAL. We are closer to Midtown Manhattan than staying in New York itself in places like Brooklyn, The Bronx and Queens. NYC transportation is only 2 blocks away, the NJ Transit Bus # 159 runs 24/7, the bus fare is $3.20 one way, but if you buy a minimum of 10 tickets at the vending machines located at Port Authority Bus Terminal, you pay only $2.70 per ticket.. In addition, train and ferry services are also nearby. You can enjoy the best of both worlds by staying in this beautiful apartment, enjoy New york all day long and come back to this peaceful and quiet neighborhood which is also very accessible to Hoboken, the official home of the famous Carlo's Bakery of Cake Boss and the birth place of Frank Sinatra. Hoboken is only 3 miles away, you can take the train ($2.10 one way ) and you can be there in 10-15minutes to enjoy trendy shops, restaurants and the breathtaking New York Skyline. It is also minutes away from the Meadowlands and Giants Stadium. Walking distance to supermarket, liquor store, groceries, bakeries, diner, shops and different ethnic restaurants located on Bergenline Ave. If it is one of those days that you are tired from walking all day in the city, you have the options of ordering food to be delivered from different places like Pizza Hut, Chinese Restaurants, Thai Food Restaurants, Mexican Food, Domino's Pizza, Papa John's Pizza, Sushi & Gourmet Chinese & Japanese Food. etc. You will have the convenience of everything whether it is a short walk or a phone call away.

  • Our experience at Ruth & Henry was amazing. They were very helpful. When we arrived at their place we found a pack and play for our 1year, this was a very nice gesture which we truly appreciate.

    They provided with a lot of useful information to help us go around. We are happy we were able to find this place. If you are still wonder if this is a great place and deal I can personally say it is.

    Thank you Ruth & Henry.

  • The apartment had a beautiful view that was taken advantage of during my stay. The room was exactly how it was advertised and it was very homely. My boyfriend and I had a great time on our mini vacation and the apartment made it that much better. It was very clean and the fridge was stocked breakfast items which was a nice touch. Ruth was very nice and helpful with the bus times going into the city. Overall it was a great stay and my boyfriend and I would do it again!

  • Ruth and Henry's place is exactly what we needed for a lil getaway. With the apartment located in the heart of town, everything was within walking distance. This apartment also had premium amenities such as breakfast items, spices, coffee and awesome shampoo and conditioner. The mattress in the master bedroom was very comfortable considering that I suffer from a bad back. I felt as if it was more like a home to me than a borrowed space. Thank you Ruth and Henry and Manny and Ingrid, we loved it and you will be seeing us again !

  • We have stayed with Ruth and Henry before and as usual everything was excellent. The apartment is very clean and completely equipped. Ruth and Henry are very friendly and helpful. We visit the area often and try to stay with then whenever we can.

  • My friend and I had an excellent time in New York and enjoyed our stay at the apartment. Ruth was a great host and had lots of very helpful information about transit, getting around New York and New Jersey and anything else we asked her. She was very informative and friendly and even drove us to a restaurant nearby. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed, including breakfast for our stay. It was easy to take the bus to New York, even during the Thanksgiving holiday, and we felt safe coming home at night. We arranged to be picked up and dropped off at the airport through the hosts and it was very easy and convenient. I recommend this apartment and will rent with Ruth and Henry again.

  • From the very first email, Ruth and Henry were exceptional hosts in every way. They bent over backwards to help my friend and I feel truly at home....especially knowing that we were first time visitors to NYC and nervous about finding our way around. The information they sent us prior to our reservation dates was comprehensive and very well organized. They responded promptly and addressed all of our concerns with a kindness that I was really touched by. The apartment itself was roomy, but cozy too...and spotlessly clean. From the main king size bed (with a memory foam mattress) to the well-stocked kitchen...everything was wonderful quality and beautifully decorated. They even stocked the kitchen with coffee, milk, cereal, eggs....unbelieveable! When they found out that my friend was bringing her own coffee beans, they even bought a beautiful burr grinder for us to use while there. The bathroom was stocked with a hairdryer, shampoo, lovely body wash....everything you could think you might need which made it so much easier not to have to pack all of those things. During our stay Henry, Ruth and their helper and friend Mannie, made sure that any of our questions or needs were addressed.....and we felt safe and very comfy in the apartment. The location of the apartment was actually ideal for us ...quiet and peaceful, but with a short walk's access to both bus and lightrail. As a photographer, I loved the view from the waterfront about 8 blocks away of the Manhattan skyline....which I would not have been able to see had we stayed in Manhattan as originally planned. Ruth and Henry are warm-hearted and people of impeccable integrity. I really don't think I'd ever stay in a hotel again when I could stay with them instead during a visit to NYC! I looked at quite a few places on AIRBNB, some of which looked very nice in the photos, but we struck gold when we found Ruth and Henry!

  • My fiance and I had a period of time between the time we moved out of Edgewater (nearby town right on the river opposite NYC) into our home, and we needed a place to stay to bridge the gap.

    Ruth's place was renovated, clean, modern and.. did I mention it was clean? There was no walking in shoes, or peeking in questionable corners. Spotless, fresh, inviting and felt like someplace we could live longer term.

    Ruth is available most of all hours of the day at literally minutes notice via iPhone, but there was no need for that much contact as everything was as described.

    The kitchen was stocked with eggs, milk, cereals, there's a espresso maker and coffee, flat screen full cable. The beds are new and comfortable memory foam, there's a huge daybed in the bedroom to lounge out on.

    Jitney/bus to the main times square station is on the corner and takes minutes (from a locals perspective you're getting on the one of last stops before Manhattan). The apartment has central air, and is very quiet. No street noise, no noise from above or below. The bathroom was extremely clean, and stocked with name brand soaps and shampoos for our use,

    All in, a just renovated, modern and very clean place to stay with a very attentive host to boot. As a local, who is familiar with the type of short term rental inventory that's available, I recommend staying here.
