A real two bdrm apartment with 3 QUEEN Beds.

(last few reviews mentioned an ant issue, due to construction in the next door apartment... this has been fixed. Also as of March 1, 2017 we have completely remodeled the bathroom to address issues a few guests mentioned)

AMAZING VIEW of Manhattan Skyline from EVERY window in the apartment.. both bedrooms!

10-15 minutes to TIMES SQUARE - Easy & AFFORDABLE plus VERY CLEAN.
Check out my great reviews!

The space


Your own 2 bedroom apartment!! Why share an apartment for the same price you have this all to yourself :)

... plus....

I can get you cheap tickets to some Broadway and much of Off-Broadway (prices between $20-45 !).

CONS: It is a fourth floor walk up!
PROS : Amazing View of MANHATTAN SKYLINE from EVERY window in the apartment!


Please don't be put off by this listing being outside of Manhattan.

We are closer to ALL THE SITES in Manhattan ....Times Square, Theater District, Madison Square Garden, Grand Central, Empire State Building, Saint Patricks Cathedral, Rockefeller Center, ....than staying in parts of Manhattan.

NEWLY RENOVATED TRUE two-bedroom apartment in Union City, NJ.

Union City is on the other side of the Lincoln Tunnel and therefore very close (10 min bus ride) to Port Authority/Times Square area. The best value for your dollar.


The apartment has been freshly renovated and includes everything you need in for a pleasant vacation. The 2 bedrooms are at the opposite ends of the apartment, so there is the kitchen and bathroom in between; they are private from each other.

* (Physical keys) so you can come and go as you please
* 2 new Sealy Queen beds and 1 Full-size bed: very comfy and cozy.

* Located in Union City, NJ, a very short direct bus ride to Times Square area
* Five blocks from gorgeous Manhattan views (along Hudson River)
* Best 'cafe con leche' in town two blocks away. You'll wonder why you spend so much at Starbucks!
* Buses to Manhattan/Times Square run every minute during day, and every 4 minutes at night. Buses run all night.
* Very safe neighborhood, lots of great restaurants and bakeries but also very quiet at night.


* Private buses (we call it 'chicken bus') run 24/7 and go directly to Manhattan. One block away from Times Square for $2.50 a seat. It's what all the locals use

We have just returned from a fantastic 17-day stay in New York. Lina's apartment is conveniently located for Manhattan - buses run frequently although heavy traffic sometimes makes the door-to-door journey nearer 30 minutes. The neighbourhood feels safe and there are a number of restaurants and small supermarkets. The air conditioning was much appreciated in the very hot weather. Lina was helpful and quick to respond to questions. We would recommend Lina's apartment as an excellent base for exploring NYC! Sanders Family. July 2014

GREAT APARTMENT!!! My partner and I just spent four days here on our first visit to New York. The apartment was exactly as advertised - very clean and bright and tastefully decorated. Lina was fantastic! The information she provided really made our trip and we are immensely grateful for all the help/detail given. Never had to wait more than five minutes for a bus over to Manhattan (even on a Sunday) and the transportation systems are so easy to use. Really pleased we decided to stay on the NJ side - nice to escape the hustle and bustle after long days exploring. Great neighbourhood, very friendly locals. We would definitely stay here again and look forward to a return visit. Thanks for everything Lina! The skyline views from all bedroom and kitchen windows were incredible!!!

We had a great stay, The apartment was really nice and all the beds were comfortable. The skyline was amazing and when I contacted Lina she was very helpful. I would definitely stay here again. The information Lina sent before our arrival about things to do in New York was incredibly useful.

Appartment was really nice as described and would happily recommend it. Lina was great too, leaving us to our own with a few short calls just to confirm we had settled in and everything was fine, which of course, it was. Once we found the information pack, the internet connection was sorted, and we again had communication to the rest of the world. Two things to consider before booking here! The appartment was on the 5th floor, with no lift as far as we could find, so if you have lots of heavy bags to carry up, this may be a problem. The only other down side was the lack of air conditioning. We happened to be there during an unusual heatwave toward the middle of June, with outside temperatures topping out at 103°F. Inside the appartment, temperatures were particularly uncomfortable. Lina explained that the lack of air con was a short term thing due to the restrictions on the building and that the air con is available from July onwards as June typically wasnt this hot!
