We had a great time staying in Ali's apartment for a few days. The location was perfect, right in the heart of beautiful Manhattan, and a couple of blocks to the subway that will take you all over the city, as well as a laundrette just across the road, which we found very handy. We arrived in NY very late at night and Ali went out of her way to ensure that we got the keys to the apartment without a hitch (thanks Ali). Ali was always prompt with getting back to you if we had any questions prior to our stay. The apartment itself provided all you needed. We definitely recommend staying here if you are planning on visiting New York!
