I am an art director living in Manhattan.
this location is unbelievably perfect for what I was looking for. the apartment was clean and GREAT A/C, very important in August heat. Des was an amazing host. She was so accommodating, my plans got changed around and wouldn't be able to arrive before midnight and she was kind enough to leave the keys with someone who could be there to meet my friend with all the information and keys. She keep in constant communication for any situations that may have arisen, although none did. I can not recommend D's property or her as a host highly enough. Thank you again for being such an outstanding host and offering your home to me. I will definitely contact you again in the future when I am passing through the city.
I'm a bit late with this but anyway I found the apartment to be perfect good clean and everything that was said Itwould be and the hosts were fantastic and would stay there again if is available again when I need it

If ever there was a city that was all about location, location, location, it's Manhattan - and this apartment is in a great spot. Just 3 blocks from Central Park and 3 streets from the 5 subway (taking you downtown), this was my 6th stay in Manhattan and I've never had a better apartment.
As Des explains, it is small, and the building is old, so don't expect a spacious loft or the apartment from 'Friends' - but it is a perfect cosy base from which to experience the Big Apple. With great shops and restaurants on your doorstep, and Woody Allen and Sean Connery as neighbours, I thoroughly recommend it. Des was a great host, ensuring we were happy and giving loads of tips on things to see and do. This will certainly be my first call when we return to NY.
Perfect location. Walking distance to Central Park and museums. Had a wonderful week in that place. The host was really nice. Made a new friend! =]
