Closer to the heart of the city (TIMES SQUARE, 42nd St.) than most locations in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and even within Manhattan itself.
I live as close to Manhattan on this side of the river, the Hudson river, as your going to get. 10 minutes to NYC. Buses at your doorstep that run every 5 minutes and all night long.
I have two rooms available, rooms are comfortable, large, furnished and private( key access) with double beds and are wi-fi ready. The two rooms are adjoining , excellent for parties of one to four guests, I only rent out to one party at a time. Kitchen and bathroom are shared (with myself) . I have a good sized kitchen which you'll have access to as well as a large bathroom with a standing shower. I provide toiletries, clean towels and bedding. This is an apartment share, I live here as well, the apartment is a 1200 square foot loft and very well divided for housing guests, meaning you don't have to walk through my space to access your rooms. One private parking space available.
I know the city very well and can advise you on places to go, ie..bars and restaurants that your not going to find in your travel books, the truly hip spots to hit in NYC.
In Union City you'll find bars, restaurants, groceries, laundry, banks, ATM's, amazing views of the New York skyline, all within a five minute walk. Come on by and enjoy the City.
Simply be considerate, come and go as you please. If your going to smoke, no problem, just air the place out from time to time. Most of all enjoy.
Tito and Nadia are very nice host. Their appartement is very nice and the bus station (3$ one way to Manhattan) is next to the house. The appartement couldn't be better located. Their are some shops like supermarkt in this area. And from the room you can see the skyline. They will help you and give you tips whatever you are asking for. (sightseeing, restaurant, nice places...)
If you would like you will have your privacy otherwise you can share you time with them and you will definitely have fun!
Tito und Nadia sind sehr nette Gastgeber. Sie sind stets zuvorkommend und helfen bei Fragen und können bei der Aufenthaltsplanung gute Tipps geben. Zb (Restaurants/ Bars, schöne Orte, Sightseeing,...)
Die Wohnung befindet sich im 3 Stock. Sie ist sehr gut gelegen. Eine Bushaltestelle ist direkt vorhanden (3$ one way Manhattan 24h). Das Zimmer ist sehr groß und komfortabel. Man kann die Skyline teilweise vom Fenster aus beobachten. Supermärkte und eine kleine Einkaufsstraße sind ebenfalls leicht zu Fuß zu erreichen.
Wer seine Privatsphäre haben will bekommt sie. Wer den Kontakt sucht wird ihn definitiv bekommen und viel Spaß haben, da es sehr unkomplizierte und lustige Leute sind. Der Aufenthalt bei Tito ist für jeden das richtige der Spaß während seines New York Aufenthalts haben will und die Stadt bzw. Vorstadt auch einmal von einer anderen Seite sehen will. Abwechslung ist garantiert!
Eine klare Empfehlung!
Tito's place was perfect. Really easy access to the city at all hours of the day, and Tito helped us figure the busses out. The bus terminal you get dropped off in NYC is so close to so many major attractions, my friend and I walked everywhere and saw so many great sights. If you walk around the neighbourhood a bit, there are great views of the skyline. The place was clean and spacious. The street outside is noisy but I brought a pair of earplugs and slept great! I will be recommending this listing to anyone I know going to Manhattan. Incredible price for an awesome place, thanks Tito!
Tito and Nadia were great hosts. The appartment was clean, big enough, with two rooms and it's Tito describes it on his Airbnb page. You can go to Manhattan 24/7 in 10-20 minutes per bus (3 $ one way). They were very friendly and helped us with lots of helpful suggestions, like bars and restaurants. I can highley recommend this appartment!!!
Tito und Nadia waren tolle Gastgeber, der Kontakt war freundlich und unkomplizert. Das Apprtment war, wie im Internet beschrieben, ausreichend groß mit zwei Zimmern. Natürlich kann man hier keinen großen Luxus erwarten aber es war sauber und alle Notwendige für einen Städetrip war vorhanden. Das "gemeinsame" Badezimmer war auch okay. Die beiden waren absolut hilfreich beim Planen von Ausflügen, Restaurants oder Barbesuchen. Wer eher auf Privatsphäre steht, wird die beiden kaum sehen, ist der Kontakt erwünscht, stehen sie immer mit Tipps zur Seite.
Die Anbindung nach Manhattan ist problemlos - 10-20 Minuten mit dem Bus direkt vor der Haustüre. Dieser fährt 24 Stunden, rund um die Uhr! Von meiner Seite eine absolute Empfehlung für einen Städtetrip nach NewYork - bei dem Preis unschlagbar!
We very much enjoyed the beautiful rooms, the location (10 minutes from Manhattan) and the hospitality of Tito. Thank you for the pleasant stay.
Tito was very warm and friendly. He apologized profusely (he really did not need to) for not having the room ready as I had arrived earlier than he expected. The bed was very comfortable and warm and the rooms were spacious just as shown in the photos. I had everything I needed. I wasn't there much as I was at an event for about 18 hours of the day, but it was just what I needed. A warm, safe place to sleep.
You could be in the city in about 5 minutes if you are driving as it is THAT close to the city. My event was in Secaucus which was less than 10 minutes away. It was an ideal location.
Just two things that I was not aware of: It is a walk up and access to the bathroom for guests is outside the apartment. The bathroom is not really all that inconvenient. It's just that you need keys to unlock the door.
The apartment is inexpensive, very close to Manhattan, but not clean. The bathroom sink, toilet, shower, floor, and the rest of the room looked like it had not been cleaned for a few months. The bathroom floor had two towels that served as rugs, and these also looked like they had not been cleaned for a few months. This is the same bathroom that the hosts use. My socks turned black with dirt after walking around the apartment during the evening. The kitchen sink was full of dirty dishes for the first two days that we were there (the same dishes). The last day we were there, the smoke alarm went off at 8 am, waking us up. Also on the last day, there was no hot water, because the pipe was frozen. The private parking spot was nice except the right side of it was covered in thick smooth ice, and the parking in on a steep incline, so the risk of slipping on the ice was very high. I saw no effort to remove the ice. The beds had sheets but no warm blankets, even though the temperature outside was in the single digits. I asked for a warm blanket but I did not get one. Instead, our hosts turned up the heat. The apartment is on the third floor with no elevator. Our hosts did help carry the luggage. Our hosts also offered us beer, and were pleasant to chat with.
Der Aufenthalt bei Tito war sehr gut. Der Raum sah aus wie beschrieben und es war grösstenteils sauber. Der Gastgeber akzeptierte unsere Privatssphäre, war jedoch bei Fragen stets da.
Dank den kleinen Express-Bussen ging der Transit nach Manhattan schnell und unkompliziert über die Bühne. Die Strecke New Jersey - Manhattan kostet 3$.
Alles in allem würde ich die Unterkunft empfehlen, da sie sehr preisgünstig und sehr gut gelegen ist.
