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 the place was great.
However, Josh and his friends made a few changes with the arrangements for us to get the keys. Firstly, he emailed me to tell me that I would be meeting Andy first. Next, he said that I would be meeting Lev instead of Andy. Followed by, Lev mistakenly giving us two sets of keys instead of one, thus I had to drop the other set of the keys to the deli nearby. My friends and I were busy packing our bags and worried that our luggage will be overweighed for the flight home. The stress of flying was really hitting us all real hard. And on top of the it all, I had to worry about the keys. Not to mention that the lady working at the deli was rude and I had to tip her for leaving the keys there. To add on to this, the place was not clean. The floor was dusty and it smells. I do not understand why I have to pay $100 for cleaning when the place is not even clean to begin with.
We had a great time in New York. The location was excellent and was within walking distance of Times Square. We fit 4 comfortably and enjoyed our time there. The sheets were laundered and the bathroom was clean. We would stay there again!
Ótima localização, limpo, espaçoso, confortável, dá para ir andando para Times Square, próximo à rodoviária principal do ônibus que pode ir ao outlet de New Jersey, vários restaurante, cafés...super recomendo!!
The apartment is very well and very clean, perfect location, walking distance from Times Square, principal stores, coffee shop, restaurants, subway, bus...I would stay there again!!!
Location, location, location. Not a perfect place but good for sleeping between city journeys. Great spot, and Josh's friend Andy met us in a timely & friendly fashion.
It was easy to contact Joshua. He was very prompt. Joshua had his friend Andy meet my daughter and her fiance to get the keys to the apartment. Andy was very friendly. It was easy to find the apartment.
The apartment is small, but plenty of room for 2 people. We had 4 and it was still doable. We did not use the loft. Some people mentioned the noise level, but we did not find this a problem. Morning coffee is close by as well as cafes and restaurants. The apartment was clean and comfortable. The air-conditioner was great to have. We would stay here again when we come to New York.
Excellent emplacement !!! Proche métro, gare de bus accès aéroport, Times Square, appartement fonctionnel. Par contre équipement léger et petite lacune niveau insonorisation.

About the Host, Joshua
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!
