My wife and I spent a week in this apartment and we found it to be perfect for all our need in the first experience in Manhattan. It is really well located, quiet and ergonomically arranged inside, with easy access, lots of storage space, clean and a fantastic little back garden – very rare in NYC.
As for the relationship with the landlord, all thumbs up! She is great; helped us with a lot of tips and references regarding points of interest in New York and the immediate neighborhood. We would strongly recommend this location both for short stay, as ours or longer ones.
