If you are unfamiliar with the location please look on a map of NYC and NJ across the river. We are across the Hudson River from Midtown NYC at 60th Street. West New York is the bedroom for most Broadway performers who chose its convenience to Times Square and its economy of price as their neighborhood. So don't be surprised to be riding home every night with Broadway Actors and Musicians on your same bus!

Note to those of you who have not used Airbnb:
• If the website allows you to respond to me regarding the dates you are interested in, those dates are available. It won't let you try to arrange a stay with dates that are already booked.
• To find out the pricing of your stay plug in the dates, enter your credit card information to pay and before sending to me for my acceptance you will see the final price. This price includes my rental fee ($135.80/night after AIRBNB deductions), $100 cleaning fee plus the 7-12% fees AIRBNB charges you on top. I can't tell you what those are as they have their own formulas. This is the same procedure for any AIRBNB rentals.
• If you are satisfied you hit "Send" and I get your reservation to accept. You will get a confirmation that it is final and approved.
**If the apartment is booked for the days you're looking for or you are two groups looking to rent near each other, ask us about our friends' space nearby**
Either Luis or Jeff will be at the building to welcome you with keys and instructions on transportation and shopping.
Interaction with Guests
You will have us to answer normal questions you have as we live in the building in other apartments.
Our neighborhood is made of one and two family homes of working class people with families. There are several schools in the blocks around us so you will see students in their uniforms on the streets. Neighbors like to sit on their porches and say hello as you walk by. It is safe and comfortable.
Local buses will take you to New Jersey shopping and connect you to other forms of transport, both in NJ and NYC. We have a local taxi service to get you to airports or UBER is now a cheaper option (cel phone app).
Other Things to Note
We supply bedding, towels, hair dryers and an iron with ironing board. There are umbrellas to borrow next to the door in the vestibule.
For tourists we recommend these websites for information:
One person responsible for lease. Up to 4 occupants allowed unless prior arrangements made.
Where it says "no charge for extra people" in the short list of options this means no extra charge for up to 4 people. Any other arrangements must be made with the host specifically before allowed.
I'm a graphic designer, self-employed and working from home so am able to manage the apartment rental very efficiently and take care of your needs as they may arise.
