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.
House rulesABOUT YOUR HOST
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.

To confirm that you have read the entire description, please include the secret word "GreenwichVillage" in your inquiry to me.

Reviews for this host's other properties
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
Nice apartment for family (6 persons) or as a couple. The apartment is located in a beautiful quiet area not far from a great view of the skyline of New York. Super nice landlady who gave us a very nice and was with helpful tips to the side. The apartment is located a few minutes walk to the nearest bus stop from which you are within 10 minutes in New York.
We enjoyed our stay very much and look forward to seeing you again.
Schönes Appartement für Familie (6 Personen) oder zu zweit. Die Wohnung liegt in einer wunderschönen ruhigen Gegend nicht weit entfernt von einem super Ausblick auf die Skyline von New York. Super nette Vermieterin, welche uns sehr nett empfangen hat und mit hilfreichen Tips zur Seite stand. Die Wohnung liegt ein paar Gehminuten zur nächsten Bushaltestelle von welcher man innerhalb von 10 Minuten in New York ist.
Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr sehr genossen und freuen uns auf ein Wiedersehen.
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.
Super accommodation! Services Excellent Undzweckmäßig.Sehr good communication and help in every way by Hannelore!
The compounds of NYCity are favorable and to cope properly after a short orientation and inexpensive. There are seniors 62+ tickets, it is really great value for money.
Thank you, we would definitely come again if NY is pending!
Super Unterkunft! Ausstattung sehr gut Undzweckmäßig.Sehr gute Kommunikation und Hilfe in jeder Beziehung durch Hannelore!
Die Verbindungen nach NYCity sind günstig und nach kurzer Orientierung einwandfrei zu bewältigen sowie preiswert. Es gibt Seniorentickets 62+, dann ist es wirklich super preiswert.
Vielen Dank wir kommen sicher wieder wenn NY ansteht!
We had both rooms and the Gruene. All very cozy.
Hannelore is very helpful and always within easy reach. They are good tips.
The apartment has a new bathroom and a whole set very clean and nice. With the bus one is fast at Times Square, from there you can explore much on foot, or you can go a couple of times with the metro. If you stay one week you should buy 7-days Metro map, so that you can then go out far and crisscross the city. Union City is to live quietly and not dangerous.
Wir hatten beide Zimmer auch das Gruene. Alles sehr gemütlich.
Hannelore ist sehr hilfsbereit und immer schnell erreichbar. Sie gibt gute Tips.
Die Wohnung hat ein neues Bad und ist insgesamt sehr sauber und schön eingerichtet. Mit dem Bus ist man schnell beim Times Square, von dort kann man viel zu Fuss erkunden, oder man fährt ein paar Mal mit der Metro. Wenn man 1 Woche bleibt sollte man auch die 7 Tage Metrokarte kaufen, damit kann man dann auch weit rausfahren und kreuz und quer durch die Stadt. Union City ist zum wohnen ruhig und ungefährlich.
For New York visitors an ideal starting point. Hannelore, the hostess is a very nice and helpful person who makes more beautiful with good advice to stay! We recommend !!
Für New York Besucher ein idealer Ausgangspunkt. Hannelore, die Gastgeberin ist eine sehr nette und hilfsbereite Person, die mit guten Ratschlägen den Aufenthalt noch schöner macht! Sehr zu empfehlen!!
Renovated apartment, very nice and very clean. Located less than 5 minutes walk to the bus stop that takes us less than 10 minutes one block from Times Square. Hannelore has us very welcome and we could contact us by email if we need anything whatsoever ... I recommend this apartment to everyone
Appartement refait a neuf , très agréable et très propre. Situé à moins de 5 minutes à pieds de l'arrêt de bus qui nous emmène en moins de 10 minutes à une rue de Times square. Hannelore nous a très bien accueillis et nous pouvions la contacter par mail si nous avions besoin de quoi que que ce soit... je recommande cet appartement a tout le monde
