You can check the price & availability by entering your dates on the right. The site will tell you if those dates are available and the total price.

The space

A recently renovated 1-bedroom apartment with a private, ensuite bathroom and a living room with a queen size air mattress. There is no kitchen, only a refrigerator and a microwave.

You will have great privacy, and an apartment that is not cluttered with the homeowner's stuff as this apartment is used exclusively as a legal rental property.

Once the reservation is confirmed, I will send you maps and detailed information about the neighborhood.

Sleeping arrangements:
- 1 queen size bed in the bedroom
- 1 queen size air mattress that can be set up in the living room
- 1 sofa for a child/young adult (the sofa does NOT pull out into a bed)

There's a small refrigerator, a microwave, an iron, a hair dryer; shampoo & conditioner; extra blankets and extra pillows.

Breakfast is NOT INCLUDED. There are many very good cafes within a block of the apartment, and there's a kettle for hot water though you will have to bring your own coffee or tea.

CHECK IN/OUT TIMES:
Flexible except when another party is checking out on the same day you arrive, or checking in on the same day that you are departing. In which case the check in and out times are as follows:
-Check out time is 11:00 am
-Check In time is 2:00 pm or later

You can always drop your luggage at any time on check-in day and also leave them in the hallway while you are sight seeing on your check-out day.

Guest access

The apartment occupies the entire first floor of a two-family home. You will be collecting your keys from Frank, the owner. My name is Min, and I manage the apartment and do NOT live there, but am always available via phone or email. Do not hesitate to call, text or email me any questions you may have. I live very close by and can be there very quickly should the need arise.

Although this is a non-smoking apartment, it is not for people sensitive to smoke as there's a smoker in the other apartment.

Interaction with guests

Always available via text or email!

Other things to note

Traveling tips:
1. Even if you're going to be here for less than 7 days, do buy a $30 7-day unlimited MetroCard for the subway and buses. It's economical and makes sense even if you're going to be here for just 4 days.

2. Download an app called Citymapper which will help you navigate our very vast and extensive subway system. You can get specific directions and have access to the subway map - very helpful.

3. Get ready to walk! NYC is built for walking, and although you'll probably have an unlimited MetroCard for the subway, you're still going to be doing a lot of walking!

4. What you MUST bring is a pair of really comfortable, thick-soled shoes.

A note for our foreign visitors: please be aware that it is customary to tip 15-20% when you eat out at restaurants. Waiters/waitresses do not get paid a normal salary and rely on tips to make their wages, so be generous to our poor service people!! Of course, if the service is not good, then you can reduce tips appropriately, but here in NY, 15% is the minimum. The only other person you tip is a taxi driver who generally gets about 10% of the metered fare.

Safe, clean, quiet, accessible. This is a great place. Never having stayed anywhere other than Manhattan, I wasn't sure about renting in one of the other boroughs. To my surprise, Frank's place was more easily accessible to the heart of Manhattan and its transportation hubs than any other place I've stayed. The apartment is less than 2 minutes from the subway stop. It was great to come "home" at the end of a long day to a friendly neighborhood with good little restaurants and grocery store, quiet streets that are walkable any time of day, and a most amazing view of Manhattan across the East River, 3 blocks away. The 51st Bakery and Cafe, just a few doors down, was a great place to start the day. If you go to their web site, you can see the steps to Frank's apartment in their photo. Frank met us at the apartment and could not have been more gracious and friendly. The apartment does not have a kitchen, but with the fridge, microwave, and all-important coffee maker, we didn't need anything more. The bed was comfortable. Frank set up an air mattress for my son, and there was still plenty of room for the 3 of us. The bathroom was very clean with plenty of towels. Even with the high heat and humidity during our visit, the apartment was comfortably cool. I hope to come back and stay here again.

Frank's place is very close to the 7 train and because it is one stop away from Manhattan, it made it very easy to travel into the city for my family. Min was very responsive to questions during the stay. The apartment was also very close to shops and restaurants in the area. The place was exactly as described and seen in the pictures.

Great place to stay! Best night view of Manhattan and the East River. Frank was so welcoming and tried his best to help us feel comfortable. Very close (literally 2 mins walk) to subway to Manhattan and it takes 10-15 mins to get to midtown. Thank you Frank for letting us stay at your place! Highly recommend to any one who looks for an economical and cute, comfortable place to visit New York :)

There was slight confusion on getting the keys, but otherwise the apartment is exactly as described. It's in a perfect location, a block from the subway that brings you right to grand central. Views from the park that is a block a way are exceptional, highly recommend taking the south ferry to Wall Street at dusk to see city lights.

My parents really enjoyed their stay at Frank's place. Very close to the subway and lovely view of Manhattan a few minutes walk from the apartment. Frank was very helpful on check in and the place was very clean. Thank you Frank!
