The Space

Welcome! Hola!

Want to be near Times Square but not the chaos? Have the true NY experience and stay just blocks away in a cozy studio with exposed brick interior. Safe area, tree-lined street. Near the A,C,E,7,1,2,3,B,D,Q,R,S & W trains, and busses.
6 blocks to Broadway theaters,
3 blocks to Central Park,
9 blocks to Rockefeller Center,
5 blocks to the MoMa,
2 blocks from the nearest police station
3 blocks from the nearest grocery store
24-hour deli downstairs
just minutes to the Empire state building,
and just a few minutes from Times Square!

Perfect for young people, it's in "Hell's Kitchen", a walkable neighborhood which has restaurant after restaurant down 9th Ave (if you want to avoid the busy Times Square and go where the New Yorkers go for dinner, this is great!).

Great location if you're visiting to see the NYC Marathon Nov 2012, Macy's Parade, also a perfect location to spend New Year's Eve in Times Square!

  • Chris was good at communication and arranged for someone to meet me at the flat when I finished work for the evening. The place was exactly as pictured in the add - clean, perfectly situated, quiet and comfortable. I would recommend this flat.

  • The apartment was in a great location, and clean. quiet room thancompared to the chaos of the city
    The sheets a bit worn but clean, as well as towels.
    The kitchen is not adequate to do the cooking, the pots are damaged and of poor quality.
    The hosts were very friendly, even though they went in the apartment without warning, while we were out. I understand that the house is owned by them but as we had all our belongings in sight (no closet) we enjoyed a warning message.
    Upon arrival there was a misunderstanding timetable and we had to wait for two hours in the park before we were given the keys. luckily it was a beautiful day, but after a 13 hour trip was tiring.
    The table actually wobbles.
    The television still does not work.
    The sofa is not there, but given the space of the apartment is better without!
    There is no lift, but are only two flights of stairs.
    Convenient to transport trips, expenses and visits to the main sites of the city, I would recommend the apartment for short stays, for those who eat out and has a spirit very adaptable!

  • Overall, my experience at Chris' place went smoothly and was generally as expected, and I'm grateful for no hiccups in my trip! Chris was flexible with my check-in and out times which was nice, and the overall process was smooth. I didn't have to wait long at all after arrival. The location was ideal and very walkable. The deli downstairs was great and inexpensive! The apartment itself was quieter than I expected, and I slept great! Overall, it was clean.

    There were a few odd things found around when I checked in, like paper towel roll on the floor, random towels laid out totally flat on the bed (I still don't get that one because there were folded ones somewhere else), and a lot of stuff in the closet (didn't find the iron, but I decided I didn't need it that badly). The bathroom could use some slight fixes, but nothing really affected my ability to enjoy myself in NYC.

    Thanks again!

  • Très belle expérience lors de notre séjour à NYC. L'emplacement est parfait. L'appartement est juste à côté de Columbus et il est facile de marcher jusqu'aux principales attractions (Times Square et 5e Avenue par exemple). L'appartement est petit, mais convenait à nos besoins. C'était propre, mais le lit laissait à désirer (quand on se couchait, on craignait qu'il casse). Autre bémol, il n'y avait pas beaucoup d'eau chaude pour la douche. Je recommande cet appartement pour ceux qui font un court séjour à New York. J'y retournais sans hésiter ! Contrairement aux autres commentaires, Chris et son oncle me répondaient très rapidement par courriel et téléphone.
