I have been living in NYC for 11 years now and have had a chance to truly explore and enjoy the local life here.
Ray was a very welcoming host. Very responsive and communicative in advance of my trip. Though I didn't need him while I was there, he made it very clear that he was available 24/7 if I might need him, and I didn't doubt it.
Ray was a perfect host. The apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped. He is very friendly and even took me out for a beer one evening. The apartment and Ray are much recommended.
Excellent guests. Ray and his party really seemed to enjoy the place and the neighborhood. Would gladly invite them to return any time.
