House is lovely and very well stocked. Lots of room for 6 of us. Bedding was super comfortable. Would recommend for anyone visiting NYC.

It is great value for the money, but that is reflected in the location, which isn't ideal. It worked well for us (family with 2 teenagers) though, as the Path was only a 10 minute walk away. We would stay there again.
