The apartment is great for a two-three month stay. Has everything that one needs to have a nice time. The owner is very friendly and is always worried of keeping a clean place and good relationship between all roommates. I stayed with 3 other roommates from different countries and never had problems.

The neighborhood is not very friendly in aspect, but I never had problems. this apartment is only a few meters from the 137th street subway and has restaurants, markets and services very close.

Thanks Francisco, it is my priority to make sure everyone has a pleasant and enriching experience at my apartment and gets to know people from all over the world and make friends.

The neighborhood has everything we need and the neighbors are very friendly in the building even though perhaps is more residential than commercial and there are mostly families living around here.

I like the peace and familiarity though is a very authentic New York experience with the subway only steps away to take you anywhere in the Metro area and that is really amazing to have!.

Thanks for being such a great guest, I hope having you here again soon.

I really enjoyed staying in the apartment for the past two months. The landlady is very friendly and supportive and helped me a lot to find my way around when I first came there. The apartment is simple, but has everything you need and very nice art pieces on the walls. The roomates were very nice, too. Subway access was very good; trains would only take 20 min. to Time Square and also stopped at the prominent sights of New York (Central Park, Time Square, Union Square, Penn Station, South Ferry- access to the Staten Island Ferry etc.)and stores were in convenient distance to the apartment.
The neighborhood of the apartment was not as nice as I thought it would be, yet, most people were very friendly.
Generally, I can only reccommend the apartment to future tenants. It was a great experience.

My experience with New York Habitat has been very pleasant and professional.

The accommodation provided was comfortable hospitable and safe, as it was advertised.

I have already started recommending New York Habitat to friends who need a hospitable and affordable environment.

Thanks so much for your assistance.
