About The Owner

I host 75-80 families and small groups of friends each year in my Apartments. All my guests have been very happy with the Apartment's large space to spread out and relax, the location, and its convenience. Many guests comment that it was a great experience to live in a genuine NYC neighborhood and feel the atmosphere, without the tourists & commercial distractions of mid-town. I live nearby so I am always available to you during your stay. I'm sure your group will be happy in my Apartment.

The Owner purchased this apartment in 2000

Guestbook comments from the owner

The property was immaculate. Clean, comfortable in a great location. The kitchen had everything required if you want to cook. The area itself is a great neighbourhood, we felt safe at all times of day and night. The apartment is a short 3 minute walk to the subway into central Manhattan. (15 minute subway ride to Times Square)

I would not hesitate to recommend this place. We had great food in The Grange and would also recommend this restaurant very highly.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two adult children just enjoyed a great stay at this location. The apartment was clean and spacious, the beds comfortable and Ray was very accommodating and informative. The 137th subway stop is very close which made travel around the city very convenient. The neighborhood was interesting and offers nice coffee shops, restaurants and bars. Highly recommended!

What a find ! This NYC apartment is perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

The minute we booked our stay Ray was extremely helpful and informative. He sent us regular update emails prior to our arrival.

We found this to be the most perfect location to explore this amazing city. We just loved coming home to a warm and welcoming space in the evenings with comfortable beds and fresh fluffy towels. The apartment has a full sized fridge and everything we needed in the kitchen. We opted to make our own tea and toast in the mornings, however there's a great coffee shop right up the street as well as plenty of dining options around the local neighbourhood. Ray sat down with us on our arrival to let us know how to get around this city which is very tourist friendly.

Rays apartment is as spacious as it looks in the photos with excellent heating and all you'll need for a comfortable stay.

We loved the neighborhood and its very easy to use the subway. Ray is never far away should you need him, but we loved finding our way around and used the apartment compendium which was full of tips and helpful information. Ray recommended a favourite restaurant for us for thanksgiving and it didn't disappoint.

We always felt safe and the locals are very friendly. We used the local laundry on the corner down the street, the chinese restaurant on our block (their servings are enormous so don't order too much!), the drug store, the hat shop, Harlem Public bar and eatery (excellent) and especially loved walking through the fresh flower stalls on our way to the subway.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this NYC apartment to family and friends. Thank you Ray, our holiday was one we'll never forget.

Fantastic place for a family trip to New York

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from New York and stayed for 5 nights in this apartment. We are a family of 6, (2 adults, and 4 children aged 16, 15, 13 &11) and this place was perfect for us as a large family. We didn't want to just see the tourist parts of NY, so this place was great as its a more residential area but close to all the places you might want to see. The apartment was clean and well equipped, and the owner gave us some great tips and advice on how to get around and places to visit. Ray, the owner also allowed us to leave our luggage at the apartment on the last day as the flight home wasn't until 11.30pm which was great as we had another full day to explore. The subway is a short walk away, and there is a supermarket around the corner. We also felt very safe staying here and in the whole of New York - we all want to return for another visit!

Memorable Mother/Daughter New York Trip

  • 4 of 5

I've been an avid user of VRBO for several years and Ray's apartment is a perfect example of why we do. Ray was very attentive to all our needs and concerns right from the moment we inquired about the apartment. He made everything about our stay easy. When we arrived he introduced us to the apartment as well as the community and area. He provided us with ALL the information we needed to get around and assured our arrival and departure were effortless. Ray was prepared with info on everything from public transit and cabs to where we could shop/eat in the neighborhood.The apartment was clean and provided us with everything we needed to be self sufficient. My only disappointment (small) was that we didn't get the apartment pictured in the ad and on the top floor but another in the same building. The décor and bathroom were a little tired but certainly served our needs. The beds were awesome and we slept well. Seeing what Ray has done with the pictured apartment I expect he will update the second floor apartment at some point too. Ray made us feel so welcome for our 5 days stay and we talked almost daily like neighbors as he lives right there and is so accommodating for questions and advice. I highly recommend this owner. He is experienced with guest needs and his accommodations are perfect for anyone visiting New York and wanting the full "New York experience". Thank you so much Ray you are an angel!!!

Wow!

  • 5 of 5

I simply can't say enough about how wonderful our experience was with this apartment. From the first contact to our goodbyes last Sunday, everything was simply top notch! I strongly recommend this property for anyone planning a visit to New York City!

Needed a perfect place to take my Mom for her 70th B-Day, and I simply could not have made a better choice. Mr. Wick was spot on in all his efforts. He met me at my taxi upon arrival and told me everything I needed to know about getting around and the apartment itself. The apartment is perfectly set up and VERY comfortable. You have EVERYTHING you need. Loved the fact the subway was so close by, plus a very nice supermarket, McDonalds (for those quick snack needs), and tons of really nice restaurants if you don't want to go all the way back downtown.

The apartment was so incredibly quiet at night it was frankly unbelievable. After staying in downtown Manhattan for years at hotels, I will NEVER go anywhere but here from now on. Trust me, you will love this place and the MANY conviences. Not to mention the VERY fair price. You can be from the apartment to Time Square in around 20 minutes, so trust me, this place is VERY accessible. Also, you are right on the 1 subway line which pretty much takes you anywhere you want to go in Manhattan. Also, LOVE how safe the neighborhood was. My Mom and I walked around in the evenings nightly to go to dinner after dark and it was no problem at all. Only thing I would warn you about is your second or third floor apartment involve some stairs, so if you have someone elderly involved it may be a bit of a consideration. My Mom is 70 and she was able to handle them pretty easily, but just don't want it to come as a big surprise to anyone.

On our last morning, Mr. Wick arranged a taxi for us and even sat outside on the front stoop with us chatting until our taxi arrived. Simply put, if you want a perfect place to stay for your New York getaway, look no further! I almost hate to give my honest review as you will feel the same way I do and want to keep the place to yourself! : )

Beautiful home, with awesome owner, in a fun, easy, family-friendly location

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I did not want to leave this wonderful home. It was comfortable, spotless, fresh and clean. We had everything we needed while we were there. Two weeks wasn't enough. What you see in the pictures of the apartment is what you will get and that is a great thing. It was super hot some of the days were were there, and the apartment remained cool and quiet. One night it was pelting rain, but I did not notice until I looked out of the window. Ray is wonderful, friendly and quite accommodating. My daughter was at a ballet program for two weeks. Consequently, we had lots of luggage. He allowed us to stow it before our check-in time and also after our check-out time. He was a life-saver. Ray will contact you before your arrival to arrange check-in and he does the same withe check-out. You will be in good hands. Ray knows all of the great, nearby places to eat and buy groceries. He has a great little concierge book in the apartment, as well as fun NYC books, and a map. That was more then we needed. He is very friendly and runs his rentals well. I ran into Ray a few times while I was out and about in the neighborhood. We would chat and it really was like talking with a friendly neighbor. Renting his apartment made our trip a great success! There are many "harder" places to stay in NY. He made it easy, fun, and pleasant.

We loved coming "home" after a busy day. The neighborhood is safe and friendly. We felt like true New Yorkers. We were able to catch the subway easily, and also walk around and explore. It was great to be able to go downtown whenever we wanted, but we were also able to escape the noise and touristy areas. For those vegging days, there is a television. Ray also provided ample, clean linens. There were pots, pans and dishware so we could make many of our meals. He takes great care of the apartments. One day as I was returning from dropping off my daughter, he was outside painting the railing. It looked fine to me before, but you can tell he takes great pride in the property and very good care of it.

I really appreciated that the apartment was non-smoking. The bathrooms were great. The shower and bath had wonderful water pressure so it was easy washing off the city at the end of the day. Ray provides an iron for clothes and even umbrellas. Everything is tidy and well-organized. We were able to truly settle in and not worry about anything.

I would book this apartment again in a New York minute!
