What a great New York apartment
When I found this place on line and it was available, I wondered, too good to be true? It met all expectations and I recommend it highly. The owner responded quickly to all my email questions and was helpful and friendly when i phoned him. My wife and I arrived before her Norwegian family of 5 so we had time to go to local markets suggested by the owner, then up 2 blocks to Astor Wines for libations, over 1/2 block to Le Pain Quotidien for the best baguettes, and have a truly well brewed espresso on the ground floor of the apartment building at Gasoline Alley Coffee. The cousins arrived to find the apartment just as advertised, complete with the aroma of my wife's fresh baked chocolate chip cookies. The kithcen had everything we needed and oven and dishwasher worked great. The apartment was clean and large, with three very nice bathrooms, and LOTS of room. The kitchen, dining, living room is a large open area with three sides of windows. The sun in the apartment from morning till evening is wonderful. One of the South windows has a little sofa nook right up in the window with a view down on to Houston and Lafayette. One of the kids was always in nook when we were home. The seven of us had breakfast every morning at a big round table and planned our day. Dean and DeLuca is only 4 blocks away so we ate gourmet European style. We set out Sunday morning to walk to the Ground Zero memorial. Two hours later we had only gotten three blocks from the apartment as the girls were stuck like glue in the shopping of SoHo. If its shopping you want, you got it. The Bleecker Street subway stop is right outside the door of the apartment building so access to all that MTA reaches is quickly available. We bought 7-Day MetroCards for each person and had unlimited access. At night we just grabbed a taxi out of the sea of taxis on Lafayette. This was our second VRBO apartment rental and we are 2 for 2 with a 5 star rating. Bon Voyage!
