TRAVELERS OASIS IN MID-TOWN MANHATTAN

There is a large living room between the guest's sleeping alcove and my bedroom. The building has very thick walls which allow quietness for both spaces. The building staff is meticulous in maintaining sanitized surfaces and adhering to good practices during Covid 19. Please see my reviews as to my hosting personality.

Sunny room in Prospect Heights

I am a designer who works professionally in the design industry, so the place is filled with modern furniture, objects and prints from my friends. I love plants and have plenty of light, so expect to see a plant in every room with a window. Typical Brooklyn brownstone. The building was built in the early 20th century and has lots of character from the ceiling to the floors with curious add on's over the years by previous owners. One of the reasons why I love it.

What's the best way to get around?

Subway is fastest to get around There are many subway maps you can download for your phone. i like "roadify" and "mymta" - once installed, you don't need wifi to see the maps if you are down in the station without service

Nicole

Citi bike Citi bike is an app where you can pick up bikes and drop them off all over the city. there is a limit of 30 minutes for each ride. in my opinion, it's the best way to see the city. get a day pass unlimited for only $12 and you'll easily be able to see all the best attractions in one day. the hudson path is an amazing bike route on the edge of the city that is super easy to ride on with great views. download the app citi bike to use. there are also kiosks at most docking stations. you can ride on the street where the cars on too when you're in the city if there aren't bike lanes. this might sound scary but the cars are super attentive to bikers.

Subway riding Getting around on the subway seems intimidating but it's rather easy. once you get into every station, you'll see uptown signs (north) and downtown signs (south). google maps has a public transit tab that looks like a train. this will guide you to the right subway station. when getting around, it's important to know there are often local and express trains (skips some stations and is faster).

Erik
ErikLives in New York

Car service If you're looking for a car service to pick you up, there are different services in nyc than elsewhere. there is still lyft and uber, but there is also juno and via. juno & via are cheaper than uber and lyft. via has both private car options and shared car rides that are extremely cheap compared to other services. via is also cheapest service to and from the airports.

Erik

Subways are quickest & cheapest We recommend you use an app like google maps on your smartphone to navigate the subway system. it is very intuitive and simple to learn.

Julia & Todd

Try revel electric mopeds! If you have a valid driver's license, you can download the revel app and rent any of the blue mopeds on the sidewalk in the area. they're cheap, fun, and you can leave them wherever you go! use code "fkrpc" for $5 off!

Ben

Get weekly subway pass for unlimited rides Weekly subway passes are a great way to get around affordably. late nights or after a long day, uber, lyft, via, and juno are a great on-demand alternative and tend to be cheaper than yellow cabs.

What's the local culture like?

Local art galleries From 16th st. to 29th st., between 10th and 11th avenues, there are more than 350 art galleries that are home to modern art from upcoming artists and respected artists. chelsea art district is one of the most important and influential in the world. while you're there, be sure to stroll along the highline, a recently redesigned aerial greenway that runs along the lower west side of manhattan.

Smoking Smoking is banned in all city parks, restaurants and bars.

Phone etiquette It's not polite to order or speak to someone when you are looking at your phone. also, if you are walking down the stairs or trying to catch the subway, be sure not to text at the same time.

What should I not miss?

Hudson river greenway Perfect for biking or walking and taking in the beautiful views. to enter follow the ramp on 158th that goes under the henry hudson parkway. the bike path and pedestrian path runs all way downtown from here. excellent attraction in order to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city, have a picnic, have a bike ride, and enjoy the nature and beautiful water views.

Edgemere farm hosts a market every friday, and there is a great farmer's market on beach 74th street Farmer's market saturday and sunday is great, hosted in a small warehouse- can get most everything organic, from green tomatoes to fresh lavender.

Michael

Sightseeing like a local Smorgasburg in brooklyn, central park great lawn, walk across the brooklyn bridge, sunset ferry ride between manhattan and brooklyn. grab a drink at the public hotel (reserve for dinner to be secured a table on the rooftop) and hop on the ferry back to midtown manhattan, you'll pass all 3 major bridges while the sun sets behind the skyline.

How can I save money on this trip?

New york citypass New york citypass includes one-time admission to 6 of new york's most famous attractions: empire state building, american museum of natural history, the museum of modern art, guggenheim museum or top of the rock, & statue of liberty.

Sudha

Metrocards are cheaper if you buy a bundle! Each fare is $2.75. depending on how many days, and how much walking you may intend to do, consider buying an unlimited 7 days metrocard for only $31 dollars. unlimited cards can be used as many times as you need daily on buses and trains. but the best! is not having to stop to replenish your card!

Loyda

Museums are free on tuesdays! Also, new york museums are funding by private organizations, therefore, they have enough money so they do not need to charge. you don't need to pay their entrance fees, give them a contribution, and you are good to go!

Loyda

Bring your water bottle! New york tap water is perfectly fine to drink, you don't need to buy bottled water at any time.

Loyda

What are some local customs?

Madison square park Grab a bite to eat near madison square park and enjoy the people watching. we recommend dig in for salads, or the famous shake shack in the park. or try indian food from desi galli on lexington and 27th.

Sudha

Escalators When on escalators, stand on the right side. this allows people that want to walk the escalator to pass on the left.

Nicole

Homeless people There is a decent homeless population in the city. don't engage with them and anyone that asks you to buy anything just keep walking. it's normal and they will leave you alone. walk with a purpose and you won't look like a tourist. you may see them on the subway as well, don't give them money. it's illegal to beg for money on subways and it only encourages them. this may sound heartless but the homeless in new york are well taken care of and there are lot's of places for them to eat. if you give them money, 99% of the time you're fueling their drug habit.

Your guide to New York

Welcome to New York City

Brash and busy, luminous and life-affirming, there’s nowhere like New York City. Manhattan alone is enough to take your breath away; the island bustles with energy and excellence, laying claim to some of humankind’s greatest commercial and cultural contributions. The theatres of Broadway. The wolves of Wall Street. The fashionistas of Fifth Avenue. World-famous landmarks from the Empire State Building to the Statue of Liberty. A dining scene large enough to embrace almost every cuisine on the planet. You’d think New York could simply stop there, but it extends far beyond glittering Art Deco facades and a jaw-dropping silhouette. From Brooklyn to the Bronx, Queens to Long Island, each surrounding neighborhood adds its own flavor, creating a heady brew of cultures that’s entirely unique and utterly inimitable.


How do I get around New York?

Three international airports serve New York City: John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) and LaGuardia Airport (LGA) to the east of the city, and Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) to the west. From JFK, you can ride the subway into central Manhattan; Newark connects by train; bus services run from LaGuardia. Once you’re in the city, the subway runs 24 hours and will get you almost anywhere you need to go. Thanks to its grid system, it is easy to walk and navigate New York. The bus network can be frustratingly slow and the iconic yellow taxis remain a quicker, convenient way to get around, although they’re in competition with rideshares. Still, whatever car you’re in, you’re at the mercy of gridlocks that can grind traffic to a halt, and New Yorkers can’t get anywhere fast enough. Be aware that if you dawdle on a pavement, you’re likely to get bumped.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in New York?

There are crowds in Midtown every day of the year, and international events happen weekly. The social calendar includes Fashion Week in February and the Tribeca Film Festival in April, while Flushing Meadows hosts the US Tennis Open at the end of August. American holidays are celebrated here with an extravagance seen nowhere else, from the famously televised Thanksgiving Day Parade to the 4th of July fireworks that explode over the East and Hudson rivers; from the lighting of the iconic Christmas tree towering over ice skaters in Rockefeller Center to the New Year’s Eve ball-drops in Times Square. Temperatures in summer and winter can reach the extreme ends of the scale, especially in Manhattan. In July and August, its miles of metal and glass intensify the stultifying heat, while freezing winds whistle through the city’s manmade canyons during the winter months.


What are the top things to do in New York?

The View from the East River Ferry

Some of the greatest views of the NYC skyline are enjoyed from the water. The Staten Island Ferry skirts past the Statue of Liberty on its way south from Downtown, but the sights from the East River Ferry are even more spectacular: a 50-minute cruise from Midtown to Brooklyn (beneath the Brooklyn Bridge) for the price of a single subway token. If you’re still not satisfied, walk back across the bridge and gaze for free.

Belvedere Castle

Created as a gothic folly by Central Park’s designers in 1869, this decorative castle doesn’t just look good from the outside. Perched on top of a rock, it offers views from its observation deck across the 840 acres of New York City’s most beloved green space, and is the perfect point from which to explore the Ramble and the boating lake to the south.

The Times Square TKTS Discount Booth

It might be no architectural wonder, but the TKTS booth deserves a visit just as surely as Grand Central Station. Offering same-day discounts on tickets for dozens of Broadway shows, it’s an affordable way to enjoy the theatre culture of which New Yorkers are rightfully proud. And you can take in Times Square’s famous light show as you do.
