PLEASE DON'T ASK WHAT THE PRICE IS. IT IS EXACTLY WHAT COMES UP WHEN YOU ENTER YOUR DESIRED DATES AND THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE. Thank you in advance!
First off, I just want to let you know that I travel all over the world. I know how important it is to feel as if you have a real "home" away from home. So I will make every attempt to make sure you're safe, comfortable and have an amazing New York experience!
I may or may not be traveling during your stay and if so, there may be a chance that there will be other guests in the bedroom but you will have the huge, cozy, zen-like living room ALL TO YOURSELF!
This is a really cute fully furnished 1 bedroom apartment right by Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. You can literally hear the crowd scream when someone hits a home run! Freshly painted throughout. Truly cozy and zen-like warm vibe inside. This is a great, safe, quiet, family oriented neighborhood! There’s a good energy around here with the new Yankee Stadium, restaurants, stores etc. It's only 2 stops away from Manhattan for quick commutes, East AND West side Express Trains D & 4 @ 161ST Street station which basically means that you'll be downtown in no time! The neighborhood is conveniently located and has everything you need. Union Square (Downtown East side) 17 minutes by train--34th Street Herald Square (Midtown West side where Macy's is and major shopping area) 15 minutes by train, East Village 20 minutes (Very trendy eclectic neighborhood, great shopping but mostly a great neighborhood with an extremely large number of various types of restaurants)!!

ABOUT THE APARTMENT:
This is a very large one bedroom apartment. You will be staying in the living room but YOU WILL NOT BE SHARING THE LIVING ROOM WITH ANYONE ELSE!!!

And of course you are free to cook as often as you would like. There is wireless internet connection throughout the apartment.

Many people that aren't familiar with this neighborhood have false and a completely inaccurate perception of this neighborhood. There is a stigma from the 80's that is still attached to the neighborhood as being unsafe, violent etc. which is not the case whatsoever. Through out the years since then, the area and neighborhood went through drastic changes. The City of New York put a lot of energy and money into re-gentrifying the neighborhood by building a huge new shopping mall, opening new restaurants like Hard Rock Cafe, building new parks, and making the area more visually appealing. This is also where Hip-Hop was first born which makes it even more historical!
Because of this, as well as the fact that it is 2 stops away from Manhattan, this has become one of the most popular neighborhoods in the Bronx. The apartment is situated 3 blocks away from the world famous Yankee Stadium where tourist and locals visit on a regular basis. This neighborhood is completely safe. I am a short, petite Asian woman who has been living here since 2006. I have came home many nights alone at night 3am and I've always been safe. All of my guests have felt the same way too as stated in their reviews.
The subway station is just 3 blocks away—5 Minute walk! You have your choice of the D Train (Express Train for the West Side) or 4 Train (Express Train for the East Side)Station: 161st Street/Yankee Stadium--15 minutes to Midtown Manhattan—17 minutes to Downtown--2 stops from Manhattan. Located a few blocks from Yankee Stadium in the Bronx. Young, hip, conveniently located neighborhood. This is an extremely safe, quiet, family-oriented neighborhood with everything at your fingertips: Hard Rock Café, Spanish Restaurants, Clothing stores, 99cent stores, Target, Best Buy, Marshalls, BJ’s Discount Grocery, Staples, McDonalds, Burger King, Dunkin' Donuts, 2 Diners, Kentucky Fried Chicken, Taco Bell, Subway, Saborros Pizza Chinese Restaurants numerous supermarkets and bodegas, post office, Chase Bank, Wells Fargo, Radio Shack, CVS, a movie theatre and the Bronx Museum. Directly across the street is a Joyce Kilmer Park—Great neighborhood atmosphere with a playground that kids are always playing in, people jogging, kids playing baseball and soccer, people walking their dogs, plenty of benches where a lot of people watch or just chill during the warm seasons of the year—great New York vibe. If you have a car, there is plenty of free street parking. None of my guests has ever had a problem finding a parking space around the building.
The Subway in NY is 24 hours a day. PRICES FOR SUBWAY/BUS PASS:
7-Day Unlimited Pass $31
30-Day Unlimited Pass $104
Or you can buy a Metro Card with either $5, $10, $20 and you can keep refilling it. You can pay by credit/debit card or cash. The machines will only give $6 in change.
For visitors arriving by airplane, the apartment is a 20 minute cab ride from LaGuardia Airport. From JFK International Airport is a 35 minute cab ride. ONLY TAKE YELLOW CABS FROM THE AIRPORT and not from anyone soliciting you for a private cab they will rip you off! Just look for the Taxi stand outside of Arriving flights there will usually be a que you can spot if not, just ask one of the airport workers to point out where the cab stand is. From LaGauardia the ride should be approximately $40 and from JFK should be approximately $65 (both are including the toll you have to pay to cross the Tri-Borough Bridge but not including a tip if you choose.)
I am an extremely experienced Airbnb host of four years and well-versed in helping my guests make the most of their trip. Again, I travel often myself, so I know how important it is to have peace of mind when travelling to be in a safe, clean and comfortable space to call your own when you’re away from home! Contact me with any questions.
Looking forward to making your stay enjoyable.
Feel at home in your room, you'e welcome to use the fully stocked kitchen as much and as often as you like to help you save money for fun things to do in NYC!
Familiarize yourself with all the conveniences of my fabulous neighborhood by looking at the map at the bottom of the page.
Extremely convenient location to get to wherever you need to go. The Subway is 161st Street/Yankee Stadium. There are 2 trains here: D Train (orange line gets you to the West side of Manhattan) and 4 Train (green line gets you to the East side of Manhattan) It's a 5 minute walk from the apartment and 2 stops into Manhattan! Getting Downtown is a straight shot down--no transferring of trains and only takes only 15 minutes!
Other Things to Note
Familiarize yourself with the neighborhood by looking at the map at the bottom of the page.
You can check in ANYTIME after 2pm--whatever you're arrival time (even if it's extremely late at night) will NOT be a problem. If by chance you will be arriving earlier, than we can work out the details. Check out is at 11am.
All I ask first and foremost is that you treat my home as if it were your own--if not better. The most disappointing thing about opening my home is to find out that a guest hasn't followed this #1 rule of mine.
Basically my philosophy about the apartment is letting my guests using their common sense, being respectful, treating others as you like being treated and on top of that making the people staying here comfortable and helping them to make the most of their stay. My priority is always the comfort and well-being of my guests and I will go out of my way to achieve that goal.
Second séjour à New York chez Lori et comme la première fois tout était parfait. Lori est toujours aussi réactive et prévenante envers ses hôtes.
Quartier populaire très vivant et bien situé. Nous rentions tous les soirs très tard en métro et ne nous sommes jamais sentis en insécurité.
J'espère pouvoir revenir encore et encore dans cette ville magique et envoûtante et bien sûr toujours chez Lori !
A good deal for the price. Probably best fit for young people visiting the city. The place needs a lot of work, cleaning and repairs. The host may want to consider letting the guest know to bring toilet paper, there is no working television and no coffee pot. Not huge deals but something people may want to know before hand. We did not have a great experience due mostly to circumstances (mile walk with luggage for 3 on a 12 day vacation, cooler etc., then carrying this all up 6 flights of stairs, only one working outlet in the room to charge devices for 3 people, no toilet paper/paper towels, moldy shower curtain and a few other things we walked right into on arrival.) I personally would not book this home again because it didn't work for my children and I but I think it is a great place for college students to stay in a visit.
Hi Karli, sorry you didn't have a good experience because I do take great pride in taking care of my guests. I always provide toilet paper but I'm sorry it ran out. There is no TV provided which is listed on my ad. It is not a mile walk either from the subway, it only takes 5 to 7 minutes depending on how fast you walk? The shower curtain is changed--thank you and I'm sorry the elevator wasn't working at the time of your visit but it was circumstances obviously beyond my control since they were replacing the entire lift and it was under major construction which I informed you of ahead of time. Thank you for your feedback and happy travels.
Chouette appartement dans un quartier très sympa. Tout était bien préparé. Merci.
We haven't met Lori but she gave us all information we needed. The appartment has good location close to subway and grocery.
Lori's apartment is great, easy to get to especially on the express subway. Really comfy beds and lots to do in the local area. Would definitely stay again! Lodi was a great host and made sure we knew everything apart the apartment before we arrived.
The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
What should I say? I stayed with two friends in the living room and we had a great time at lori's. We where staying 18 days and a vacuum cleaner would be very handy after a while ;)
We never really used the kitchen but not because it was not good. We didn't use it because of the crown diner near the subway station where we ate nearly every day :D
You should try it when you are at loris place.
Thank you lori for the great vacation we had :)
