About Hector Griffin

Oh look at that.... you found me

I spend most of my time between Jersey City NJ, Forest Hills, NY, and Manhattan. I'm that guy people ask for directions in the subway, and I enjoy binge-watching Netflix in my spare time. I traveled and lived in many countries as a kid. I was never in one place too long, until I came to NY. Now it's home, and I know what I look for in a place where I stay. I'm hoping to share the little I know of the big apple and its surroundings.

Hector Griffin purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Hector Griffin chose The Heights

My former home, which I still love and I like to share this small oasis minutes from the Big Apple.

What makes this apartment unique

You are minutes away from the hustle an bustle of New York, but you get to recharge just across the Hudson river in Jersey City.

Very Comfortable! Well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

Very Comfortable! Well maintained. Owner responds quickly to questions and great to talk to. The location is good. It's 15 min walk to light rail and from there you can get just about any where. if you are driving here with a car and don't plan on driving once you arrive, I highly recommend using the garage. Parking can be confusing as you have to move the car twice a week for sweeping. It's a 5-10 min walk to Cuban, Chinese, Spanish or Pizza. I discovered Spanish coffee(I've always loved Cuban coffee but I never heard of Spanish Coffee. Now I love it.) It is on the second floor so by end of my stay my legs were feeling it but I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I recently stayed at this apartment. Everything was amazing. Very clean. Any info needed was there to take full advantage of NYC. Home owner was such a help with all of our questions and responded quickly. I honestly can't say enough great things about it. THANK YOU for welcoming us and making us feel so comfortable! We look forward to future stays!
