I think Eric's apartment would be close to ideal for a visit to Manhatten.
It was spacious, well equipped and has amazing views of the Manhatten sky line. You can also go up to the roof top which is 43 stories high for a 360 degree view.
There are subway stations 5min away and the Empire State is 2 blocks north.
If we ever return to New York I would like to stay at Eric's apartment again.
We had a really great stay at eric's place ! Great view, great location , nice apartment ! Eric is a terrific host, next time i visit NYC i ' m definitely booking his flat again ;)
Great views and a great apartment!
Erics apartment is a dream! I`d rather say it`s a pearl in NYC and we were so lucky to found it!!
It`s located in the heart of Manhattan in the 19th floor of a luxury high-rising building with an incredible rooftop in the 43rd floor.
The apartment offers enough space for a comfortable stay for four persons and is nicely done up. Shortly after arriving we enjoyed the rooftop and clinked glasses for a great week in NYC in front of the (certainly) most beautiful view of the city (many thanks for the Welcome-Prosecco, Eric!!)
The rooftop offers moreover high quality sunlounger and terrace-furnitures, even an open-air sun-shower!!
Also the entrance of the building is impressive and there`s always a friendly and helpful doorman (24h) at the reception.
Eric left us a letter with useful information about the apartment (contact numbers, wifi password, refuse disposal etc.) so that we hadn`t any problems or open questions during the stay.
I could write nonstop about the amazing stay at Erics apartment, but this should be enough! We all loved staying there and could recommend it to you!!
We loved staying at Erik's apartment in K-town. The location is really good, being just 1 street away from the 34th St/Penn Station subway, which offers easy connection to all parts of Manhattan (as well as a direct train to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx!)
Erik was responsive in his correspondence, and gave us clear instructions to pick up and return the key to the doorman. his apartment is in a modern building with a member's club (and laundry room) on the 2nd floor and a beautiful rooftop patio.
The apartment is bright and well lit up and definitely offers enough space for 2. Towels, clean linen and some toiletries were offered. In the kitchen, the fridge and pantry are also full of various edible stuff (but which we didn't touch).
Special mention to the suede (?) sofa that is really comfortable, I even fell asleep there one night while reading. The TV is also fitted with Tivo and offers a wide range of channels. Erik also leaves a page of useful tips and instructions (e.g. wifi password and contact details) on the table in case you need it.
The laundry is done in a room on the 2nd floor (there are about 10 washers/dryers) and you have to use a pre-loaded laundry card that Erik provides, we left the appropriate cash amount for him (USD5 per washer+dryer load).
All in all, we had a very positive experience dealing with Erik and staying at his apartment, this being our first Airbnb experience and one that has convinced us that this is the way to go for future trips.
Great apartment in a terrific spot, so handy to everthing.
Eric is a superb host, nothing is too much trouble.
He left a lovely bottle of wine out for us, perhaps next trip!
Thank you for everthing Eric.

En trevlig lägenhet med fin utsikt och riktigt bra läge. Den passade oss utmärkt eftersom vi var i New York för att besöka min son som bor bara fem minuters gångväg därifrån. Väl utrustat och välhållet kök och badrum. Sängen i sovrummet var utmärkt att sova i men lite svår att bädda upp eftersom den stod intill ena väggen. En hel del bra restauranger i området och nära till tunnelbana och tågstation. Lätt att nå till intressanta besöksmål. Som helhet ett bra och välordnat boende.
El apartamento esta muy bien situado para poder moverte por todo Manhattan, es muy cómodo, acogedor y esta bien equipado, el edificio tiene una terraza en la planta 44 donde hay unas magníficas vistas, hemos pasado una semana inolvidable. Lo recomiendo
Had a good five nights at Erik's. The views from his apartment especially the rooftop were amazing. Central, close to subways and shops.
We had a great stay in Erik’s apartment –comfortable bed, great view, perfect location (all trains, PENN, Broadway + 5th Ave shops). The view from the rooftop is the best ever - seriously. Very comfy for 3 or 4 people (with the extra airbed). Although it is in Midtown, I had great sleep. I also enjoyed Erik’s home entertainment system – including PS3 and XBOX - with zillions of TV channels available. (I only watched Tennis Channel, which is very rarely available in hotels or in other homes).
As another guest said, Erik is indeed a gentleman – although we couldn’t meet him as we were mainly out in the city, he was always helpful and left the airbed in the apartment before my sister came to stay a night. Check-in and check-out could not have been easier – pick up / drop off at the concierge. Heating in the apartment was effective and silent. There is a good wine bar (Ayza) right at the entrance of the building.
Erik was a pleasure to host. He is welcome back anytime and is highly recommended.
We are family friends since our teens. Our moms were best friends. Erik is like a brother. A kind and generous gentleman.
Erik is a close and reliable friend who I have known for well over 15 years.
He is constantly in service. I couldn't imagine a better host.
Furthermore, his apartment is both luxurious and centrally located with easy access to ever area of the city.
