As far as renting a place in NYC, one couldnt ask for better. The apartment is clean, sunny, and quiet. The neighborhood is safe and lively, with food shops( some open 24/7), drug stores, name it youll find it, even a fresh farmers market every week. Not only is there transportation to all parts of NY right at your feet, but you have a choice of metros and buses. On one side Central Park and the other Riverside Drive. I could go on and on..... and of course to make you stay welcoming, the owner is professional and personable, she made us feel right at home. Its worth it. I have referred friends who thought just the same, so dont hesitate one minute to make this rental your choice.
