This is a great lower Manhattan location.
Most important to us -- you will take care of a cat who may not warm up to you. If this is not something you are comfortable with, we are sorry but that is the situation.
2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment in lower Manhattan near the Statute of Liberty, Wall Street, the World Trade Center site and Century 21 Department Store. We have a queen size bed in the main bedroom, a twin bed in the second bedroom and a queen size sleeper sofa in the living room.
Most anything you would want in your own home your will find here -- WiFi both in the apartment and in many convenient hot spots near the building, cable TV, a treadmill in the apartment, dishwasher, microwave oven, full kitchen. There is a laundry room on the second floor.
Walk out the back door of the building and stroll along the Hudson River, watching sailboats and cruise ships go by the Statue of Liberty. Play volleyball (there is a net set up just south of the Marina, which is home to yachts, sailboats and a sailing school) or dine on the water at one of many offering a beautiful view of the river.
City busses (the M9 and M20) stop in front of the building complex. Subway stations (A, C, E, R, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5) are a ten minute walk. There is a Citibike dock at the side of the building.
Our cat, who is five years old, will be your responsibility while we are away.
On dates marked as unavailable we may be able to host you, for a significantly lower rate, but we will sleeping in the apartment. Contact if interested.
Interaction with Guests
Varies. We like to meet before hand using (website hidden). When possible, we will meet you the day you arrive or the day you are leaving, but this does not happen often.
Buses are very close (M9 and M20). Subways are a ten minute walk, but many lines are within walking distance (A, C, E, R, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
I stayed at David's for two weeks with my boyfriend and friend. David was an excellent host from the moment we contacted him through Airbnb. He was very prompt in answering all our questions and extremely arranging regarding arrival and departure times. He even managed to send us the apartment keys in advance since he was on vacation during our stay. He also offered a lot of information on the neighborhood and NY, and remained reachable throughout our stay.
The apartment is perfectly located near the 9/11 memorial, right next to the Hudson River, and at walking distance to many subway stations.
It is also ideal for a stay with friends as there are two bedrooms and two bathrooms.
The apartment was quite neat as well.
Citrus the cat was not happy to see us at first but got used to us after a week or so, even letting us pet her. She is easy to care for.
All in all I would definitely recommend a stay at David's apartment and would gladly stay there again if I come back to NY!
Spent a wonderful week in the best location in NYC in David and family’s spacious apartment with Hudson River view. The apartment worked well for our family of 5 and had everything we needed for our stay.
David is a great host and made sure we knew where to go in the local areas, restaurants, shopping – like having a local guide - a great compliment to the NYC guide book.
Citrus the cat was keeping to herself, and was amiable when being fed.
Next time we’re in NYC we hope David and family is out of town so we can stay at “home”
The apartment is perfectly situated in NYC: the neightbourhood is calm and the promenade along the Hudson river is lovely !
We had a great time in NYC and David's apartment is really not far away from the subway. His family is charming and they gave us a lot of insider tips.
The apartment wasn't very tidy and clean and most of all the cat was very agressive with us (hissing and attacking), even after a whole week !
superbe moment que ce séjour à New York. Le quartier est calme, l'appartement spacieux et confortable, les bords de l'Hudson magnifiques, des milliers de choses à faire, à voir, à écouter !
Le chat était un peu sur la défensive au début du séjour, mais il avait vu défiler plusieurs locataires cet été, et les relations sont devenues très bonnes par la suite. Nous n'avons pas rencontré David qui était en vacances, mais je tiens à le remercier quand même.
Très bon endroit pour découvrir New York.
Que dire, hormis que l'appartement est vraiment très bien placé, pas cher, que David a tout fait pour nous faciliter les choses, et que la ville est époustouflante...
Petit point noir au tableau, il faut facilement 2 jours pour que le chat, Citrus, s'habitue à la présence d'un étranger.
Beaucoup de commerces autour de l'appartement. A deux pas du WTC (pour ceux qui veulent visiter le mémorial ) et à peine 10 mns de la 1ere station de métro, pour nous, c’était l'idéal. En bref, merci à la famille Feldman qui a largement contribué à la réussite de nos vacances.

In general, the whole airbnb experience: prepaying, communicating with the host prior to the trip and staying in an apartment instead of a hotel was a great way to visit New York.
Our specific experience
- Great communication with host prior to stay. David always responded immediately to any e-mails. He provided lots of great information prior to our arrival.
- Incredible location! location! location! Walk outside and see the Statue of Liberty and the WTC in a short walk. Easy access to the subway, which we used all week. Cabs always available in front of building.
- Plenty of room for four. Very comfortable.
- Neutral - Their cat kept to herself and was easy to take care of.
I stayed with David during Hurricane Irene and had to be evacuated. David was even quicker than the media or the building management in contacting me and keeping me informed. He offered alternatives and solutions and was ready to support me. He also offered to refund the nights I couldn't stay there, without me even asking.
As for the apartment, it is exactly as advertised, in a great location, with quick connections to the rest of New York City. When you arrive, it feels like you are stepping into the apartment as a friend of the family. The cat is very low maintenance and everything you need for Citrus is there. Don't expect the 'hotel maid' to have prepared everything to be spotless clean, but feel home and cosy with the Feldman's.
