Great Location, Good Apartment
This place is small has some limits but is in a great location at a great price. The things to be aware of: Limited privacy as the bedroom with two beds has a glass door; limited kitchen space and dishes with a small folding table and 2 chairs. If someone sleeps in the living room there is no air conditioning unless you leave bedroom doors open as the bedrooms each have a window air conditioner; Television reception is over the air only and poor because of brick walls. Third floor in case stairs are a concern. But it was comfortable with 3 double beds plus couch, good linens and towels, and a big fridge. The best part is the location: 10 minute walk to Grove Place PATH station and from there 5 minutes to WTC or 10 minutes to 33rd St. You can get from doorstep to Manhattan in less than a half hour at subway prices! We were there 4 days and bought a 10 trip on PATH and a 7-day MTA pass each. That made it easy to get all around NYC each day. We put our car in the Grove Place parking garage. It's hard to find the entrances but there is one in back as well as right in front at the hotel door. I would gladly return here for future New York City trips. Oh, and a great little store 2 doors down, and around the corner stop at Wonder Bagels... perfect NYC Bagels! Plenty of restaurants and stores within 4 blocks and Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts by the PATH station. Easy way to drive in: I-78 east from I-95. Pass through one toll barrier then exit to Columbus Ave. Go 2 blocks and bend right then go just 3 short blocks to Varick. Turn right and find a parking spot. Parking is impossible to find from dinner time to 8am and limited to 2 hours from 8am to 5pm. Time your arrival and departure carefully.
