Private entrance, single bedroom apartment on the first floor of our house with its own kitchen and bathroom, just steps from 24 hour bus-service to & from NYC.
Enjoy this colorful, quiet, private unit within our house. You'll rest comfortably in a queen size bed for 2 people, with room to relax in the living area with satellite TV on a sofa (that converts to a bed for 2 people). In addition, you'll have your own bathroom with a shower and your own kitchen/dining area with a small fridge, microwave and oven. When the weather's warm, enjoy breakfast on the patio in our yard. Need wi-fi access? We've got that too and free parking if you need it!
As many of our international guests have asked, yes, we do provide towels and sheets for you.
You'll be staying just 1/2 a block from stunning views of the NYC skyline, and 1 block from a bus stop for getting to and from the Times Square area of Manhattan in 15 minutes (we're 2 miles from the Lincoln Tunnel) for only a $3 bus fare. Buses run frequently, even late at night, so you needn't worry about schedules, due to our proximity to midtown.
The apartment is less than a 5 minute walk to a small, well-stocked supermarket and a number of restaurants. You can see more details in the Guidebook link on this listing.
We can't wait to have you join us and have a groovy NYC adventure!
Guests have private access to the entire apartment - your own bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and living area.
Interaction with Guests
As our guests stay in a private apartment within our house, it is really up to our guests how much they wish to interact with us. We live directly upstairs from the apartment and try to stop in and visit our guests once or twice during their visit, to ensure that all is going well and answer any questions. Our guests are invited to get in touch with us at any time during their visit.
We are always around when we have guests visiting.
We have a very quiet neighborhood that is perfect for relaxing before or after a long day in NYC.
The views of the Hudson River and the New York skyline cannot be beat!
For those of you with cars, free parking is available.
Everything you could possibly need during your stay is within walking distance of the apartment.

Kitchen upgraded in 2014 - new stove, counter, cabinets, waist high refrigerator & even a NYC subway map on the backsplash!
We are very happy we got to stay here while visiting New York. Everything was as described. It’s a great place, and had everything we needed for our week long stay. The neighborhood was really quiet, and the apartment was perfect for relaxing after a day in the city. The bed and linens were really comfortable. And it was lovely to wake up to the birds singing outside in the garden.
Mark and Lori are really friendly and helpful :) And the visitors guide they provide made our trip so much easier since this was our first visit to New York.
We recommend staying at the Groovy apartment!
Mark è stato molto disponibile ed accogliente sin dal primo momento in cui siamo entrati in contatto con lui. Ha gentilmente accettato di ricevere un pacco postale a mio nome prima del nostro arrivo, e ci ha inoltre fornito alcuni suggerimenti riguardo offerte ed eventi eccezionali tenutisi a New York durante la nostra permanenza. L'appartamento è esattamente come viene descritto e visualizzato nelle foto, per di più è stato aggiunto un armadio e il bagno è stato risistemato, e presenta tutti i comfort di cui si può avere bisogno. Si trova in quartiere residenziale tranquillo a pochi metri dal fiume Hudson, il che garantisce una splendida vista e un rapido accesso al bus diretto per Manhattan. Il costo per ogni viaggio è di 2.70$ a tratta (con carnet da 10 biglietti), e la distanza risulta scomoda in caso di traffico, altrimenti si arriva a due passi da Times Square in 15-20 minuti. Inoltre, a breve distanza dall'appartamento si trova un supermercato ben fornito (Freshco market) ed alcuni locali. Esperienza complessivamente molto buona, consigliamo.
Mark (nous n'avons eu a faire qu'avec lui) est très accueillant et prévenant. Ce fut un séjour très agréable, l'appartement est idéalement situé et parfaitement fonctionnel. Rien à dire de négatif.
Les services (bus/supermarché/restaurant...) sont très proches. Nous recommandons l’appartement à tous ceux qui voudrai faire un séjour à New York. Belle expérience pour cette première sur Airbnb.
Mes 2 enfants et moi avons été très bien accueillis par Lori et Mark qui étaient aux petits soins.
L'appartement bien équipé est au rdc d'une maison charmante de plein pied sur un jardin avec une terrasse agreable avec bbq dont nous n'avons hélas pas pu profiter à cause du temps. Une déco perso et fun nous faisait nous sentir at home.
Nous avons apprécié d'avoir une cuisine indépendante le matin et le soir en rentrant pour des petits déj et dîner sur le pouce.
Les déplacements sur Manhattan se font facilement par car et on arrive à la gare routière très centrale à 2 pas de Times Square en 20 mn.
Nous reviendrons là avec grand plaisir lors d'une prochaine visite de NY.
La vue au coin de la rue est extraordinaire et ce fut chaque matin et soir un ravissement.
Merci infiniment à nos hôtes
The groovy appartment is like you see it on the pictures! It is a warm and super quiet place to relax after a busy day:) In the appartment is everything you need for a short or longer stay! The ride to the times square takes 15 minutes and the bus stop is 5 minutes away from the appartment! The view when you get out of the appartment is wonderful you can see the skyline from manhattan!
Mark and Lori were very helpful and answered all the questions we had! The book they made is also very helpful! We will recommend a stay at the groovy appartment:)
This place is just like on the picture: very colourful, cozy, warm and super quiet place. The apartment has everything you need to have a full rest after a busy day. The neighbourhood is great, and it really takes you 10-20 minutes to Times Square. There is also a ferry going to the Downtown - very convenient and you can enjoy a wonderful view of Manhattan. I will recommend this place to all of my friends!
Mark et Lori sont des hôtes très serviable et agréable. Très bon accueil.Même si je ne parle pas du tout anglais on a su se comprendre. Vue magnifique sur New York. Endroit très calme. Appartement très bien situé. Les bus sont à 2mn du logement et c'est vraiment très bien desservi. La place de parking est vraiment un plus dans cette ville. Je recommande vraiment ce logement et si je dois revenir je retournerai chez eux sans hésiter.
About the Host, Mark & Lori
Lori is originally from Brooklyn and snuck out to NJ when her parents weren’t paying attention. Mark grew up in New Jersey, tried another place or two, ultimately deciding there is no place like home.
After a long career in advertising, Lori now works as a horticultural therapist at NYU Langone Medical Center. That also pretty much means that she’s the one who keeps the front garden and backyard looking so wonderful!
Mark works as a Product Manager for a financial software company, enjoys playing volleyball and listening to live music. He is always seeking out interesting events in the Tri-state area.
We spend much of our time in New York City and love taking advantage of all the City has to offer. We'd be happy to recommend our favorite spot for music, places to eat or drink, and keep you aware of what we know is going on in the Big City.
