Neighborhood (via Destination360):
"This commercial and tourism center of mid-town Manhattan is bordered by Broadway and Seventh Avenue, and located between West 42nd and 47th streets. Within these exciting blocks, travelers will find an assortment of exciting things to do from January 1 to New Year’s Eve among the neon signs and NYC landmarks. Times Square attractions run the gamut from the arts and opera to retail shops and TV studios.
Within a few blocks, travelers will find that several different shows film and welcome average folks to be a part of the audience. Some of the more popular shows, such as Saturday Night Live, David Letterman, Good Morning America, and The Daily Show require tickets. No tickets are necessary to hang out on Rockefeller Center to see The Today Show. The free outdoor concerts hosted by the morning and late-night shows are some of the coolest things to do in Times Square every summer. Visitors can join in the local arts by catching these concerts and more.
Times Square attractions like Rockefeller Center, the NBC studio tour, skating on Rockefeller Center, Museum of the City of New York, the Museum of Modern Art, Museum of American Folk Art, and The Museum of Television & Radio offer interesting experiences, all with a Manhattan flair.
Many repeat NYC visitors list shopping and dining among their favorite things to do in Times Square. With a mix of familiar names, unique outposts, and flagship stores, Times Square shopping is expansive, luxurious, and a treat to many. FAO Schwarz, made famous in the movie Big, still features that iconic floor piano. Other retail Times Squares attractions include the CBS Store, Dale and Thomas Popcorn, and Sephora. And between the food vendors, favorite names, and New York landmarks, no diner will leave Times Square hungry.
Those looking for something special when considering what to do in Times Square should consider the popular Manhattan landmark of Grand Central Terminal, which is much more than a train station. A few blocks from the theater district, Grand Central is home to restaurants, a market, and shops, in addition to being an architectural landmark. Guided tours and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority Gallery Annex reveal the history and current culture of this amazing place."

The location of this apartment is really amazing - only a few blocks from Times Square, and the Port Authority Bus Terminal/42nd Street Subway station is at the end of the street. In this location you have to expect some noise from the street, but it's surprisingly quiet considering where you are.
The apartment has a small but clean bathroom, a TV, chairs and a table, Wi-Fi, a futon and a small loft area with a mattress, plus a double bed and kitchenette. It's about the size of a standard hotel room, but with added extras like a full size fridge, a sink and a cooker. A hairdryer is provided, which was appreciated!
It was very cold when we were in New York, so we really needed the central heating and the blow heaters. There is also an air-conditioner for summer.
There were lots of extra towels and warm bedding.
If you're worried about security there are two locks on the apartment door plus a chain, and two doors to get in to the building. The surrounding area also felt very safe.
Josh and friends were there to help if we needed it.
Thanks for letting us stay!
Very smooth experience. Didn't get a chance to meet Joshua. His friend Andy, who was very friendly and accommodating, met me with the keys. The apartment was just as described. No complaints here!
Loved his location. It was literally a block from everything you need and a few blocks from time square. Easy to access and Joshua was very responsive and a great host. Would definitely recommend
We had a wonderful stay in New York! The location was perfect for us seeing as we were walking distance from all of the Broadway shows we wanted to see. We enjoyed exploring the area around us including the bars and little delis right around the corner from the apartment. We were able to fit five of us comfortably and Joshua was very accommodating to us. If you've never been to New York and want to be right in the heart of the city, you'll definitely want to check out this apartment!
Perfect location for exploring NYC and great value for money. Had a great time and would definitely recommend staying here
I didn't met Josh himself but he was always very responsive to my messages. His friend Lev met me to hand me my keys and help with the check-in process and was very friendly. The place was just as described, roomy enough, and located in a prime location. Perfect when you want to visit and explore NYC on a budget as it's a place to sleep and take a hot shower. Josh was also very flexible on checking out late. I'll definitely recommend this place!
The place had what you needed for a place to stay when traveling with a family--a bed, a futon, and an air mattress. The price was pretty reasonable, but the place didn't seem quite as nice as the pictures. It is a little older, but worked out for what we needed. The shower had good water pressure. The fridge kept our drinks cold. The beds were comfortable and there were some extra blankets. The window, however, had a pretty noticeable amount of cold air coming in. The heater combatted it well enough for us, but it may be too chilly for others. Also, it's on the first floor and it was quite noisy outside. We are pretty heavy sleepers, but be prepared to hear full conversations and traffic right outside the window. The heater can be quite noisy too. We had a decent experience. It was so close to Times Square and we wanted to be near our show. It was a 4 minute walk from the bus station and it only took one 5 minute subway ride to get to the train station. Joshua didn't meet us, but he told us ahead of time his friend was going to meet us instead and gave us his friend's number. His friend was there when we arrived and was so friendly when he showed us the apartment and gave us the keys. He was also only a block away if we got locked out or needed anything. That was comforting. The pros outweighed the cons since we didn't want to spend the extra money for a hotel. All in all, I recommend the place to people who can handle the city noise of s first floor apartment, and the study stream of cold air coming from the window. We just piled on some extra blankets and used the space heater often.

I'm a business guy in my mid-twenties, born and raised in Los Angeles. I spent the last six years in New York City, and now go back and forth between NY and Seattle. I've driven across the US twice and have been to most of the states in The Union. I'm very easy to please and don't fuss over minor details when I have guests. All I care about is that you not make a big mess or disturb the neighbors. I look forward to meeting you!
I love a good conversation and follow the news very closely. It's great talking about the world with people, but I understand not everyone is interested. It's very seldom that I watch television, but I do enjoy a good movie, book, or video game when I have the time. I've been working and living on and around the Lower East Side for years, so I know lots of fun places to go and things to do and am more than happy to show my guests a good time, if they have the time!
I don't normally spend much time at home, so you probably won't see too much of me unless we make plans together. My priority is ensuring your comfort, so don't hesitate to ask questions when we meet!
