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**
First Airbnb experience, and it's a very pleasant one. The accomodation is clean, spatious, quiet and well-equipped. Our hosts were extremely helpful. There are a lot of little details, like take-away menus, taxi numbers, local area maps (some hand-drawn :) etc which make the stay even more productive and easy. There are even things left from previous visitors (like spices, sugar, chocolate milk powder, jam) which came in very handy upon arrival - we made sure to leave our share for the next person.
The area is safe, even if it doesn't look like it. To get to Manhattan, we took the NJ Transit buses, which stop at 42nd street Port Authority bus terminal (connection to trains A, C, E) - 3 € / person.
Definitely a recommended place - we went with 2 adults & 2 small children.
10/10 absolutely everything was perfect, the loft is very beautiful and super clean, it's in a very safe and nice neighborhood and stores and restaurants are within walking reach. Jeffrey was very helpful, also Luis who lives downstairs was always available and a great help. The bus station to Manhattan is also really near.The 2 bedrooms are on each side of the loft each with a bathroom, so you can separate the loft very well. We rented a crib from a company for our 1 year old, the loft is well suited for kids.I would recommend the loft to everyone.
We had a fabulous experience with Airbnb and with Jeffrey Adkisson. The loft was beautiful, immaculate and the perfect location from which to enjoy Manhattan. The hosts, Luis and Jeffrey, were friendly and informative and we highly recommend this location. We travelled with our daughters 12 and 16 and they also enjoyed every minute! Thanks Airbnb and Jeffrey for helping to make our vacation in NYC a huge success.
Perfect! Its rare to find a place that goes beyond expectations, but staying here was just that. We did not have the chance to meet Jeffrey in person but we had many emails from him with suggestions & tips weeks in advance to our trip, in his absence was Luis great guy also. And the apartment better than what the images show, everything is of quality construction and good taste in the selection. We hope than the next time we travel NY its free for our reservation.
One more thing! traveling from the apartment to Times Square takes around 30 minutes by bus enjoying the skyline view of manhattan and youl'll find buses every 5 min, so don't worry if it seems far from the center.
The second visit to Jeffreys place , every bit as good as our first visit .
We enjoyed staying in this appartment. It was so big with nice furniture and it was very clean.
You get a fantactisk view when you drive back and for to Manhatten with the bus which you find 5 min walk from the app.
I sure want to stay here if I came back to NY again

Very clean, spacious and nice apartment. West New York can be reached easily by bus in about 20 to 40 minutes (depends on traffic) from Times Square. If you fly to Newark Airport you'll reach the apartment in about 30 minutes with a cab (75$). I would definitely recommend to stay there!
Excellent place to stay whether short or long. Location was good with eateries round the corner (1min walk at most). Luis provided detailed directions to the bus stop. It's $3 or $.20 for a 20min ride into Manhattan. I would definitely choose this over more costly hotel rooms in town in future. The loft was kept very clean and had all the equipment you could think of (microwave, oven, kettle, hob, washing machine, dryer....the list goes on). Location was safe and you could really spend time in the loft without getting bored like how you would in a hotel room!
Perfect location, comfy apartment and quite neighbourhood. This apartment was really one of the highlights during our stay. After reading the ratings for the apartment you expect something nice but it was like coming home after a long day in Manhatten. The kitchen provides some necessary "leftovers" like salt, oil, jam...as well as the bathrooms with shampoo, hair-dryer etc.
Thanks a lot for helping us with the taxi to JFK - good advice/price! I already recommend your apartment to friends!!!
Jeff and Luis are wonderful hosts. They did their best to make our stay in their apartment enjoyable. This gorgeous NJ apartment was the perfect home away from home for me and my family. It is in a good location with easy access to everything. It is clean, spacious, comfortable, cosy and far superior to a hotel. It had everything we needed. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.
I highly recommend this place. Once again, thanks Jeffery for everything :)
This is the final rate, including any fees from the host and Airbnb.
