The Space

Please make sure to check all three of my listings for availability.

This apartment is totally independent and not shared with anyone.

LOCAL TRANSPORTATION:
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 $3.20 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 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.

It will take you 10 minutes to be directly in Times Square!!! in the comfort of a bus. Buses run 24/7 bus stop located a block away.

  • This apt was more than enough space for the 3 of us. Walking distance to anything you might need really quick, designated parking is about 2 blocks away but its great not to be driving around searching for parking. Only about 15 min drive into the city, overall very good for the money

  • Je ne saurais que recommander ce logement, les trois lits sont très confortables, la literie est parfaite, le logement apparait juste plus grand sur les photos qu'il ne l'est réellement.

    l'appartement est bien équipé, et très pratique, les hôtes sont très réactifs.
    le logement est situé dans union city New Jersey, un quartier espagnol très rassurant, et qui offre un dépaysement différent de New York.

    l'accès a Manhattan est très facile ( notamment grâce au indication de l'hôte). cependant cela peut prendre un peu plus de temps pour rejoindre Manhattan le matin que pour en sortir ( en fonction de l'heure de 25 a 40 minutes aux heures de pointes ).

    Pour finir si vous souhaiter passer quelques jours autours de New York et souhaiter un logement bon rapport qualité prix foncez

  • We stayed at the apartment between 23th May and 1st June 2014. Overall, we were really satisfied with the conditions. I will summarize it with bulletpoints.

    Plus:

    -If you are not staying in Central Manhattan, this place is giving you great alternative. It is just across the Hudson River in Union City and when there is no traffic at the entrance of Lincoln tunnel you are in Manhattan in 10-15 minutes. And % 80 procent of the time there is no traffic. Only in the mornings if you try to reach NY City at rush hour. However even thiat takes 25 minutes..tops...

    -The area and the appartment is quite secure. When we arrived at first night we were a little bit hesitant (it was in Hispanic neighbourhood across the Martial Arts school :) ) however we did not experience 1 single incident, neither on the road nor in the room.And honestly, in the end the people in that area looked more friendly than the people in NY City :)

    -The area is full of traditional restaurants and 2 big supermarkets. Especially the one on 33th street (only 5 minutes walk) is great. We bought all our food to cook from there. I advise to try the restaurants too.

    -The bus is only and only 20 meters away from the apartment, both ways. That was a big plus.

    -Betty (or Beti :)) came to give us the keys on first day and we were not disturbed after that. Also there are so many helpful materials in the room. Bus schedule, guides, map that shows the supermarkets and some important numbers.

    -For some it is important. 2 big screen TV's. 1 in the bedroom the other in the living room.

    -All tools that help you cook was there.

    -Miyoko sends an e-mail about the transport alternatives before you arrive there and it is really helpful.
    Minus:

    -In the weekends, especially on Sunday the bus comes really rare. However this is not apartment's disadvantage, it is also usual schedule all over the city. Also if you do not see the NJ Transit buses, you can get this private buses that will take you to Uptown, we never used them, but it is also an alternative. And if you walk 10 minutes to the transfer stop you have more options.

    -The local people cannot speak that fluent English. If you cannot speak Spanish, sometime you may have difficulty. However if you are just interested in going to NYC than it is not a problem also.

    -The markets are closing at 21:00. So if you are planning to buy something when you return to room, you'd better do it in the morning.

    As you can see the place has so many pluses than minuses and the minus points are also about external factors, not only about the room, so you can ignore them.

    I would definitely advise the place to the people who are looking for a neat, tidy, secure apartment with reasonable price.

  • Nous sommes une famille composée de 4 personnes.
    Nous avons eu plaisir à venir dans cet appartement. Il est bien placé, et l'accès à Manhattan est facile grâce au bus (qui fonctionne très tard), donc fidèle à la description. L'appartement est suffisamment équipé, nous avons bien dormi, c'était calme. Le quartier est sympathique, il y de quoi se restaurer mais aussi faire ses courses et les quelques petits magasins ne sont pas chers comparées à ceux de Manhattan. Mme MIYOKO nous a bien aidé à nous organiser et a réceptionné pour nous les billets d'un match de baseball. Merci. Betty que nous avons rencontré nous a expliqué tout ce que nous avions besoin de savoir.
    Donc nous sommes satisfaits.

  • Gostamos muito do apartamento da Sra. Miyoko e da cortesia da nossa anfitriã Sra. Beth.
    O apartamento estava limpo e arrumado e o banheiro tinha um chuveiro quente e forte.
    Ê situado num bairro seguro e com bom comercio hispânico.
    Todos os dias pegavamos o ônibus que nos levava ao Port Authority onde trocavamos pelo metrô para conhecermos Manhatan.
    So temos a agradecer pela aportunidade que nos deu de conhecermos Nova York de forma barata e segura.

  • Appartement propre et bien situé. Le quartier est bien desservi par les bus pour rejoindre Manhattan (environ 15-20mn de trajet)
    Un panorama extraordinaire de NYC à quelques minutes de marche en suivant la 37ème rue... Un loueur de voiture sympathique à Port Impérial (Génius). A proximité du Jersey Garden Outlet (soldes), du Prudential Center (hockey sur glace), du Woodbury Outlet (soldes)... les avantages des déplacements sans la traversée de Manhattan. L'appartement est très bien jusqu'à 4 personnes. (rapport espace / tarif). L'appartement parait plus grand sur les photos qu'il ne l'est en réalité. Notre séjour en famille (4+1) s'est toutefois très bien passé, nous sommes enthousiastes ! Donc MERCI Miyoko !
