Victor's place was fantastic. Grocery store/market right next door on 7th/15th, amazing restaurants nearby. Walk to Times Square, easy access to multiple subway lines. We enjoyed an entire week at this apartment, and we loved every minute. This is a classic New York apartment, with great style and details like exposed brick and a super compact but modern kitchen. Plenty of windows and light if you want it, nice wooden blinds if you don't. It IS a 3rd floor walk-up, so be prepared to lug your stuff up, but don't worry, we got used to it. ;)
The location was prime. Safe, relatively quiet for NYC, super convenient access to everything in Manhattan, and very close to The New School, where we attended a conference.
The bathroom was HUGE for this city, with plenty of storage and space. Loved the tile work. Good closet space with hangers for our clothes. Nice hardwoods in the main living area, super comfy bed (though it was kind of squeaky, which took some getting used to), great pillows, cold A/C (thank goodness, cuz it was HOT in the city when we visited). Great TV and WiFi, good sized table for card games and work, and the building felt secure and safe at all times.
Victor was a great host and got back to us promptly with any questions we had. Check in and out were super easy, too. Honestly, we never wanted to leave. Would absolutely stay again!
