ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
* Located in Union City, NJ, a very short direct bus ride to Times Square area
* Five blocks from gorgeous Manhattan views (along Hudson River)
* Best 'cafe con leche' in town on corner. You'll wonder why you spend so much at Starbucks!
* Buses to Manhattan/Times Square run every minute during day, and every 4 minutes at night. Buses run all night.
* Great grocery and wine/liquor stores in the neighborhood including one right on the corner which is open until 11pm
* Very safe neighborhood, lots of great restaurants and bakeries but also very quiet at night.
About Transportation: I have received many questions from people who don't believe it possible to be outside of Manhattan and so close to it, yet it's true. Here are some facts about transportation:
1. Apartment is 5 minutes (6 blocks) from the bus stop.
2. The bus is very frequent, I rarely wait for it more than 2 to 3 minutes. Most of the time you won't even wait at all. You will step to the bus stop and a bus will be there.
3. Buses are available 24/7 so you can catch them even when you spend the whole evening out.
4-The price of these express buses is $3 onboard, and $2.50 if you buy tickets at ticket window #23 at Port Authority Bus Terminal
5. You won't find these buses timetable or route on the internet, it's a private bus company that runs many lines in and out of Manhattan
* City bus runs every 12 minutes to Hoboken, home of the Cake Boss and every 20 minutes (during commute hours) into Manhattan
* Easy city bus access to Jersey Garden Outlet Mall, much closer and as good as Woodbury Commons
Many ask about the price and extra fees and how to pay. When you put in the dates and number of people you will get our total cost. There are no taxes or cleaning fees on top of this, but AirBnB adds their fee. It varies between 6-12% on top of our price.
All the payments are safely made with credit card to AirBnB when booking. They hold the money until the day you check in and will then transfer it to us.
Bookings with us are done with the "strict" cancellation policy and all cancellations should be done through AirBnB. This being said, if we manage to re-rent the place the nights you have canceled we can give a bigger refund to you than what the strict cancellation policy dictates. The earlier you cancel the bigger the chance that we will find other guests.
DEPOSIT IS FOR KEYS AND WILL BE REFUNDED TO YOU BY AIRBNB WHEN KEYS ARE RETURNED.
To confirm that you have read the entire description, please include the secret word "bloomberg" in your inquiry to me.
Check out by 11am STRICT. We are happy to help you coordinate luggage storage at Schwartz Travel in Manhattan if needed.

Chicken bus! It's the best thing to use to get in/out of Manhattan at any time during the day or night. More specific information is sent to you upon booking.

My second time to stay with Maria and I loved it just as much. She is wonderful and loves her house and is very enthusiastic about NY. I recommend to get some tips from her regarding sightseeing and eating out. The house is very clean and beautifully decorated. Thank you Maria!
This place was so cozy and it felt like home. It was beautiful, charming, clean, quiet, and the room I had was very large and private. The Super Hosts, Maria and Jay, were fantastic and lovely people. They kept the home very clean during my stay, they were very accommodating and informative, they keep fresh breakfast items in the home daily for their visitors, and they were very helpful if ever I needed anything! This apartment is extremely close to the city and it took me about 10 mins to get to Time Square Nyc from their home with easily accessible public transportation. I would recommend this as a top notch place for anyone to stay, especially for an extended stay!
Maria's home is beautiful, we staying in it in our last week of a 5 week traveling holiday... the house was amazingly decorated as you can see in the pictures! It was so handy to get in and out to Manhattan on the private bus' that were about a 5min walk away (if even!) It was great to be able to come home after a busy and tiring day in NYC and just chill out on the sofa!
it was already my second time i staid with maria and jay. the house is easy to reach by bus from manhatten port authority(42nd street). it runs 24 hours and is about a 5 minute walk to the bus stop in new jersey.
the house and room is very spacious and super clean! maria is a very helful and friendly host who does help with any questions u might have.
the fotos a very accurate and we can recommand the large room, we would come back.
Our 1st vacation using AirBnB. Maria & Jay's place is our 2nd leg of the trip. 1st one didn't work out exactly as expected, not owner's fault -- we simply didn't know Manhattan well.
Maria &Jay's home worked well for us;
-- Very convenient to Manhattan;
-- Lots of shared space on 1st floor, cooking a big meal not a problem;
-- Safe and quiet neighborhood;
-- Very helpful, warm-hearted hosting couple!
2 personal notes:
Maria waited for us 'til over 9:00 pm;
We were provided with a parking permit.
Big thanks to you, Maria and Jay!
You hardly meet bad Canadians around the world. Maria and Jay are proud Canadians!
A misunderstanding in our favor: the way Maria advertised her place seemed it's a 11-room big house. Only 3, as it turns out.
We had a very pleasant stay in NY. Maria and Jay are very dedicated to their gests. The place is well located indeed, it is very easy to reach Times Sq at any time day and night. We highly recommand this room.
Good experience in New Jersey ;)
I know, it sounds strange, lot of people think that if you want to visit NYC you also have to live there..
Well, if you don't want to spent sooo much money for a room go to New Jersey in one of Maria's apt! The room we had was nice, clean and perfect! The apartment matched perfectly to our needs with its large and complete kitchen and living room!
NYC isn't that far (20-25 min to reach Times Square) and the "Chicken Bus" it's perfect to get there and coming back in any time of the day!
I recommend this place, in particular for a long stay in NYC!
Thanks Maria, and safe travel to all of you!
Maria's place was so comfortable! We had a piano so my gf could practice for her performance! Maria her hubby (oops i forgot his name! Sorry!) were so friendly and helpful! We could contact her anytime we need help (but end up we don't have to) The bus service to manhattan was as written by Maria - quick and convenient! The area is safe with a police station just along the avenue! (you will never need them though!) Though we wish that they can extend the subway to NJ instead of just to the east of manhattan =) Overall great experience and worth the money! Thanks Maria!
It was my second time at this place, so I guess with this info all is said. Great stay. Very convinience to go into NY city. Just 15 min and you are in midd Manhattan . Once again I would definetely come back. The house is great, clean and quite. The room I stayed was perfect. Quite big so enough room for luggages and stuffs. María provide us with clean towels, water and some candies as a welcome.
Un viaje increíble....ver NYC & NJ en navidades tiene un encanto especial.... Muy recomendable!!!!
