The listing for Erika's apartment gives exactly the right impression. It was perfectly located next to five subway lines (2, 3, 4, 5 and the Franklin Av/Prospect Park shuttle - all were useful during our week-long stay). We spent almost all of the week in Manhattan, so taking the subway all the way to Midtown and beyond started to feel like an effort as the week went on, but it's worth remembering that this is a much more affordable option than the equivalents in more central locations - to cut the commute and maintain the quality of apartment would probably come with a hefty price tag.
Facilities were fairly basic but comfortable and everything we needed was provided. The place felt like a proper New York apartment. The good big fridge-freezer and aircon were essential during the hot, humid summer evenings, and the bathroom facilities were absolutely fine. The historic building had charm with high ceilings and lots of room, and the apartment was very clean - we had read a couple of previous reviews that suggested it was dusty but did not find this to be the case.
Our arrival was well-managed, instructions were clear and Erika answered quickly and helpfully whenever we had any queries. We would have no reservation in recommending this Airbnb. Thanks Erika!
