We used to live in Manhattan, and now we make Union City our home. Why? Larger apartments, as fast or faster to get into the city (faster than traveling on the express train from Harlem), and a great neighborhood vibe.
* Real home.
* Fast dependable wifi
* Private keypad code for you only, one key for building.
* 24/7 super easy access to Manhattan, buses go every 2 min, $3 per trip
* Walk home from bus or walk in neighborhood safely, very low crime area
* Supermarket, cafe con leche, fresh bread, pharmacy, fast food and sit down restaurants, city skyline view all in walking distance.
* Real beds for six people, fold down futon and air beds for extras
* Digital grand piano, if you play
We hope that you'll come stay with us and discover for yourself how crazy it is to be in a different state, but yet so close that it takes you only 15 minutes to get into Times Square.
Main floor apartment, so a few steps up from street, but then it’s all on one level. Wide hallway in apartment. Bedrooms at back, living room and separate family room at front.
FOR FAMILIES: Babies and kids are considered guests and are to be included in the guest count.
ABOUT PAYMENT: 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 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.
To confirm that you have read the entire description, please include the secret word "rockefeller" in your inquiry to me.
Parking: There are three options for parking. 1) Covered municipal lot two blocks away, you can buy ticket for up to 72 hours at a time. 2) Street parking. This is tricky, as there are lots of meters around, so you’ll have to be very careful. Let us know if you decide to park on the street, as we’ll provide you with a visitor permit ($25 deposit, held until permit is returned 3) reserved parking spot across the street at our neighbors place, this is $10 per day.
We must ask that all guests checkout no later than 11am. We are happy to help you coordinate luggage storage in Manhattan if needed but we change our codes after check out time, and we need the time after checkout to prepare the house for the next guests.
Feel free to message me with any questions!
Full kitchen, the entire apartment, wifi, emergency key in lockbox, little terrace for outdoor smoking.
Interaction with Guests
I live really close and I'll always around, so I'll be as available as you want me to be! Maybe we can sit and have coffee together and I can help you plan your itinerary.
Our neighborhood is residential, green and safe. Being very close to the Hudson River that separates it from Manhattan makes this a top location to enjoy Manhattan’s breathtaking skyline, day or night.
Our apartment is a few blocks away the bus station which is serviced 24/7 to Port Authority Bus terminal in Manhattan, right next to Times Square (Read further down for more details about transportation).
Super easy public transit, buses run 24/7 every day.
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 (5 blocks) from the 24/7 bus to Times Square and 1 block from the city bus (stops at 1am).
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
* Minimum stay 3 nights
Other Things to Note
Lots of great restaurants a few blocks away. You can even bring your own wine!
To confirm that you have read the entire description, please include the secret word "guggenheim" in your inquiry to me.

We stayed from the 27.12.2014 until the 04.01.2015 in Maria's apartment. It was marvelous. The bedrooms were large and comfortable. The apartment was clean and spacious. We had WIFI, a well equipped kitchen and a very comfortable living room. The location of the apartment is fantastic. Everyday we took the Express bus (5 min. walk from the house) downtown to Time Square (just 15 min. drive). Transport from and to the airport was very easy following Maria's descriptions. The same was true for the access to the apartment. We kept in contact with Maria via Whatsapp and could ask for support anytime. Overall this was one of the best holidays we had. In my opinion this is one of the best options to experience New York.
Apartment was clean and inviting. Perfect amount of space for nine people. Maria was quick to respond to messages and provided everything we needed (linens, toiletries, kitchen items).
Transportation was super easy. We started calling the newyork/paterson bus the magic bus because it was always there waiting for us.
Nous avons passés un super séjour à NY. L'appartement est exactement comme la description. Bien situé, propre, fonctionnel. Le quartier est calme et l'accès à Manhattan par le bus est direct (nous ne l'avons jamais attendu). C'est un vrai bon plan. Encore merci Maria
This was a great unit for the six of us to stay. It was as advertised and Maria was very helpful, even provided a laptop for us. Transport was so convenient and cheap to main attractions. Local area felt very safe, I highly recommend a stay at this place.
We (party of 6) had the perfect spot for our trip to NYC. The appartement is spacious, everything just as described! Maria is very friendly and helpfull, when needed she reacted quickly. Quit neighbourhood with enough shops and restaurants. Good and easy connection to and from Manhattan, just as Maria describes. I would absolutely recommend this appartement to others. Next time we will return.
Onze ervaring met Maria en haar man Jay zijn alleen maar positief.
Op al onze vragen kregen we meteen feedback.
Ook hebben zij het transport vanaf het vliegveld naar hun apprtement verzorgd en weer terug.
Ook mijn verzoek om wat printouts te maken werd meteen gehonoreerd.
Enig minpuntje was dat er nagenoeg geen toiletpapier was en vrij weinig handdoeken voor 5 personen.
We had a great time in NYC and Maria's place was perfect for our needs. The place was clean, spacious and beautiful. The rooms are at the back so street noise cannot be heard. Anyway the area is very quiet at night.
The commute to midtown is really simple and takes about 20 mins. Never had to wait for the bus in the 4 days we were there. Every time we got to the bus stop a bus was there waiting for us.
Maria was very responsive and friendly. We communicated through SMS and it was perfect.
Thanks for the great time!

We have a number of listings, so please take a look at all of our places for availability. Each of our listings has very easy access into Times Square - we are big advocates of our local bus service which we call the "chicken bus". Buses run every 5 min, 24/7 to Times Square. Take a look at our guest reviews to see what travelers say about getting in and out of NYC. We are not agents, my husband, Jay and I take care of guests full time!
We are Canadians living in the US, and are well traveled ourselves and know how important a good nights sleep is while you're away.
We will make sure that you are comfortable here.
