Freshly renovated warehouse loft with generous size rooms, great light, safe neighborhood, 20-25 minutes to Port Authority Bus Terminal (midtown/Times Square). You will be renting your own SEPARATE apartment, not shared with mine!
2 bus services ($3.00-$3.75 each way), light rail & ferry connections close by.
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!
Apartment is on 2nd floor of former embroidery factory. FREE WIRELESS INTERNET. 42" Plasma TV, Stereo with Ipod link, Radiant floor heat, central air, two private terraces facing south (this is great for smokers!!!), new stainless appliances & kitchen, marble trim master bath with 2-person soak tub & shower.

A 20 minute walk down the hill brings you to Starbucks, PF Chang's China Bistro, NJ Light Rail train (to Statue of Liberty Park and Hoboken) and the Ferries to NYC midtown and Wall Street.
Parking may be arranged for an additional fee to purchase town visitor's parking pass. Newark, NJ (EWR) airport is our closest airport and taxis are about $55 each way.
NOTE: Airbnb "Street View" is over 4 years old, before we renovated building!
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.
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.
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.
Von der ersten bis zu letzten Minute luef alles vollkommen problemlos. Jeffrey gab uns rechtzeitig viele hilfreiche Tipps.
It was our first time doing AirBnB and I don't think we could have picked a better place. Driving to the apartment was no problem (we arrived around 3pm, better to get there at 3pm or earlier, because there can be some traffic in the area). Louis greeted us and helped us get parking sorted out (thank you so much!) and gave us an overview of the apartment. He explained the buses to take to get in and out of the city. The bus stop is super close by (there will be a helpful map for you!) NJ transit buses were 3.20, taking you right to Port Authority, and from there you can walk to tons of attractions & museums. The Sphynx and Johnny's buses were $3.00, and running 24 hours on the weekends which is great if you want to experience NYC nightlife! It is a really beautiful, convenient and comfortable space -- even better than the pictures! There are new sofa & chairs and decor in the living space and a really great television. There's washer and dryer to use and everything you'll need for cooking (pots, pans, etc) which was so convenient. In the neighborhood, there's a grocery, Chinese, pizza, liquor stores, etc, all within a minute or two walk. I really have nothing but good things to say about Jeff and Louis' place! Louis was flexible & available and willing to help if we had any questions, which really relieved the stress!
Luis and Jeffrey are an outstanding hosts, they did everything to ensure that we are comfortable, thank you guys.
The apartment bright, clean and well equipped, with easy access to Manhattan.
I strongly recommend Jeffrey and Luis apartment.
Bright, clean, comfortable and roomy apartment. Close to NYC and Jersey Turnpike. Our hosts were attentive yet non intrusive. We had a great stay and would have no reservations about returning. Neighborhood parking was a bit tight but Luis made arrangements for us to park in the driveway when we got back late at night. All in all a very enjoyable experience.
Luis y Jeffrey son muy amables y atendieron cualquier petición que les hicimos. La casa está genial, tanto de espacio, como de distribución como de limpieza (era una de las cosas más importantes para nosotros dado que viajábamos con un bebé)
La casa está ubicada en un lugar tranquilo, y la parada del autobús que te lleva a NYC está a 5 min de la casa y pasan con bastante frecuencia.
Todo muy bien y sí, sería un lugar que recomendaría.
Wir hatten einen angenehmen Aufenthalt. Er war super nett und hilfsbereit.
Wir würden auf jeden Fall wiedergekommen.
Die Wohnung liegt sehr zentral, Kein Verkehr, keine Baustellen oder sonstiges.
Super sauber und ordentlich. Super einfache Verbindung zu Manhattan .
Absolut empfehlenswerte Unterkunft!!
It was an amazing stay. Jeffrey's place has everything we need. The living room is spacious and bright. The plants made it even better. It was very thoughtful to provide the information about how to get into the city. We will definitely choose Jeff's place for the next stay.
