We traveled with a 4 year old. Safe neighborhood and accessibility to public transportation were 2 of our main concerns before booking here. It turns out we didn't have to worry about those at all. We felt very safe walking back at night from the bus stop. There are 2 main lines on NJ transit to Port Authority Terminal in NYC. Both were only a couple of blocks away from the house. It took around 20 minutes to get to NYC. Very convenient indeed. We also walked to the grocery store down the street. We also walked to a Rumba's Cafe (Cuban food). It was a surprise gem that we found on Yelp. We ended up going there multiple times during our stay. Lilian and Eric were very helpful. They helped us get a taxi back to LGA. They both live upstairs from the basement apartment. So if you ever need anything, they're just one door knock away. We didn't use the grill outside because it was getting a little chilly during our stay. But if you have little ones, there are plenty of rooms for them to run around in the back yard. We will definitely be back. Thanks Lilian and Eric!
