NYC's Best Kept Secret
|Adres||17th Street, 07087 Union City, Verenigde Staten|
Welcome to New Jersey/New York!
This is a 1 bedroom garden apartment located on the ground floor of my home - just 15 minutes from NYC. It is ideal for people looking to visit the city for a couple of days as well as looking to stay for a couple of months. Please message me if you are interested in staying for an extended period of time and I will be happy to discuss long-term pricing with you then.
The apartment has been completely renovated and newly furnished. The walls have been newly painted and a sprinkler system installed.
I live upstairs, so you can pop in anytime to ask questions or to just hang out!
Please make sure that you check all my other listing – *the Red&GreenRoom & *the entire Apartment - under my profile, and if you don't find the dates you're looking for, shoot me an inquiry anyways and I'll do what I can to help you, including recommending other great local hosts.
Great energy and very peaceful! Feel free to message me with any questions!
There is a fully equipped kitchen with refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster oven and more ... We provide coffee, tea and hot chocolate. We encourage you to make yourself at home. Depending on the length of your stay, you can stack up on food and drink, there is plenty of storage space! We suggest restaurants (menus available including of those that deliver!)
In addition to a very comfortable queen-sized bed there is a couch in the living room, that can sleep an extra person.
Located in Union City, NJ, a very short direct bus ride to the Times Square area.Three blocks from gorgeous Manhattan views (along the Hudson River) Jitney Buses to Manhattan/Times Square run every minute during day, and every 4 minutes at night. Buses run 24/7. They leave from the Post Office on 30th Street - a 10-15 minute walk from the house.
It is easier and faster to commute into the City from Union City than commuting from Brooklyn or Queens. If you were to stay in the Bronx it would take you 40 min to get to Times Square. If you were to stay in Brooklyn it would take you the same amount of time as subways in Brooklyn are not direct. If you were to stay in Manhattan you would not find a place as big as this one for this price. Great grocery and wine/liquor stores in the neighborhood; a Bodega around the corner (open until 10 pm), and the supermarket is just a few blocks away.Very safe neighborhood, lots of great restaurants and bakeries but also very quiet at night.
I was born in Vienna, Austria and have been living in the States for some 4 decades. I lived in Greenwich Village and the East Village (NYC) for 25 years - I consider myself a true New Yorker still, although I now live in New Jersey! I speak German and English and the person on the top floor speaks Dutch and Afrikans (she is from South Africa)!
INTERACTION WITH GUEST
I live on the first floor in the building (it is a 2-family home), so you can pop in anytime to ask questions or just hang out! I like to keep in contact with guests via WhatsApp or Viber (Text or Email or Cell), so I can assist if needed.
Bookings with us are done with the "strict" cancellation policy and all cancellations should be done through Wimdu. This being said, if we manage to re-rent the place the nights you have canceled we can give a bigger refund to you than what the strict cancellation policy dictates. The earlier you cancel the bigger the chance that we will find other guests.
DEPOSIT IS FOR KEYS + VISITOR PASS or any damages that may have occurred. IT WILL BE REFUNDED TO YOU BY WIMDU AFTER YOU HAVE CHECKED OUT.
To confirm that you have read the entire description, please include the secret word "GreenwichVillage" in your inquiry to me.
Check out by 11am – if you need to stay longer, a special request can be made, depending if we need the apartment the same or the next day.
Please keep the place near and orderly; we expect you to wash your dishes, dry them, put them away and take out the garbage before you check out (see recycling notice in the apartment).
Security Deposit is held to ensure return of Room Key & Visitors Parking Pass. Please leave your keys in the apartment door upon check out, and the parking pass on the dining table to make sure that deposit is instantly refunded to you.

Beoordelingen van andere accommodaties van deze host
Hannelore is very nice and give many good informations. The appartement was great, my sister and I have passed an really good week in NYC.
We would like come back again!!!
A perfect place to stay when visiting New York. Very nice and clean flat. Hannelore is very kind and of great help. From Union City it is only a few minutes to the city center of New York. Buses are driving very often. If you have one day more, try to visit also Union city itself. it has some latin-american charm that is quite nice.
Wonderful stay in this apartment. Just 15 minutes away from manhattan by bus. The apartment is equipped with everything a family need. And is also very clean!!
Very friendly host who gave us in advance through e-mail very good info on how to get to the appartment and how to travel from and to NY
Very quiet neighboorhood with grocery shop around the corner
Busstop is 5 min walk and bus takes you to center of NY in 12 minutes
This was our first experience. Had a great and pleasant stay, the appartment was super and very clean, with all the equipment a home needs.The area was also very quite and peaceful. Ppl very nice and helpful. The busstop to New York is just 5min away, and takes you in 10min depending on traffic.oneway ticket is around 3$. Hannelore is a superb host. So helpful before and during the stay. Everything was just perfect, we will definetly come again and with the whole family.
This apartment was well set up for travelers with plenty of space to store clothes etc. Yet all necessary items supplied. The apartment is in a quiet, safe and interesting area. A supermarket and many good restaurants are near by. Even an old fashioned diner on 32nd street. The fashionable area of Hoboken is easily reached by bus from a nearby stop as is Manhattan. Hannelore was very helpful even posting on an important item we left behind by mistake. We certainly recommend this apartment to travelers looking for a little different visit to NY
Hannelore is a great host. She had a lot of tip and tricks for us. Everything was as the description. The green room is well equipped (as the whole apartment) and clean. The bus connection to NYC is good - it is a good located to enjoy the City. We had fun !
Un super accueil d'Hannelore qui nous a été de très bon conseil pour le shopping entre autre !!!!
Un grand merci donc, l'endroit est en ligne directe de bus à 200 mètres de Time Square pour 3 $ jour et nuit, nous n'avons jamais attendu le bus plus de 10 mn...
Les Taxis intéressés par une bonne course vous feront peur mais les bus sont bien réguliers...
Appartement propre silencieux, climatisé et TRES calme. Toutes les chambres étaient occupées et nous avions toutes notre intimité sans efforts !
Super séjours si on revient on changera pas de solutions après avoir échangé avec des amis sur leurs séjours.
Marjo et Chris
A great welcome, Hannelore was us very good advice for shopping and more!!
A big thank you, the place is a direct bus line 200 meters from Times Square for $ 3 trips, day and night, we never waited more than 10 minutes bus ...
Taxis interested in a good race you will be scared, but buses are very regular ...
Apartment clean, spacious, air conditioned and VERY quiet. All rooms were occupied and we had all our intimacy without effort!
Super stay if we return, we not change solutions. having exchanged with friends on their holidays and is excelent value for money.

Hannelore was the perfect host! The place was cozy and clean and the area was in close proximity to restaurants and stores in Union City. Hannelore was a big help in terms of finding our way around and Manhattan was a short bus ride away.
Wir (Familie mit 3 Kindern) haben in den Herbstferien ein paar schöne und entspannte Tag in Hannelores Ferienwohnung in Union City verbracht. Dank Hannelores exzellenter Vorabinformationen konnten wir die Wohnung trotz anfänglicher Bedenken problemlos und schnell mit Subway und Bus erreichen (AirTrain bis Jamaica, Kombiticket Airtrain und Subway am Kiosk links neben den Fahrkartenautomaten kaufen, Subway Linie E bis Port Authority Bus Terminal, Ticket für NJiT-Bus Nr. 123 am besten am Schalter kaufen, zu Port 214 gehen und in den nächsten Bus einsteigen, ca. 4-5 Stationen und an der Highpoint Avenue aussteigen - am besten im Bus so setzen, daß man die Leuchtanzeige im vorderen Teil des Busses sieht - alles völlig unkompliziert!)
Die Übergabe der Wohnung ist durch die Ausstattung mit Zahlenschlössern ebenfalls sehr komfortabel. Engagiert, kompetent und routiniert wurden wir am nächsten Morgen von Hannelore mit einer Familienpackung Donuts und Krapfen begrüßt und mit allen notwendigen Informationen versorgt.
Das Haus selbst liegt in einer sehr ruhigen Seitenstraße, sodaß wir sogar nach das Fenster offen lassen konnten. Die Wohnung ist mit allem Notwendigem gut ausgestattet, die Einrichtung nicht mehr ganz taufrisch, aber alles sauber und gut gepflegt.
Überrascht waren wir von der Tatsache, daß die Innenstadt (Times Square) auch in den Stoßzeiten (ca. 09.00-09:30 morgens) schnell und problemlos mit dem Bus zu erreichen war- Auch die Rückfahrt abends zwischen 18.00 und 20.00 Uhr war nie ein Problem.
Ingesamt haben wir uns während unseres Aufenthaltes rundherum wohlgefühlt und können die Fereinwohnung uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen. Unser besonderer Dank gilt nochmals Hannelore, die uns immer mit Rat und Tat stets freundlich, kompetent und hilfsbereit unterstützte.
