NYC’s Best Kept Secret
|Address||17th Street, 07087 Union City, United States|
|Response time||A few hours|
|Calendar updated||A week ago|
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.

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.

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
We had a very great week in NYC!
The apartment was great, as described on the Wimdu page. Everything was very clean and tidy. It is in a very quiet residential area, in which we felt very safe to us. If you went a couple of blocks toward the Hudson River, we had a wonderful view of the skyline. Even with the Jitney buses one is after about 10-15 minutes the thick of things in there.
Even before we had contact with Hannelore. She also has the airport pickup Newark (highly recommended) organized by her son for us. The day after arrival, they visited us, gave us tips and even during our stay she asked us via WhatsApp, if everything was okay.
We can recommend Hannelore and her apartment in any case and also the booking via Wimdu went smoothly.

Wir hatten eine sehr tolle Woche in NYC!
Das Appartement war klasse, so wie auf der Wimdu-Seite beschrieben. Alles war sehr sauber und ordentlich. Es liegt in einer sehr ruhigen Wohngegend, in der wir uns sehr sicher fühlten. Wenn man ein paar Blöcke Richtung Hudson River gelaufen ist, hatte man einen wunderbaren Blick auf die Skyline. Auch mit den Jitney-Bussen ist man nach ca. 10-15 Minuten mitten im Geschehen drin.
Schon im Vorfeld hatten wir Kontakt zu Hannelore. Sie hat für uns auch das Abholen vom Flughafen Newark (sehr zu empfehlen) durch ihren Sohn organisiert. Am Tag nach der Ankunft hat sie uns besucht, uns Tips gegeben und auch während unserem Aufenthalt fragte sie uns per WhatsApp, ob alles in Ordnung sei.
Wir können Hannelore und ihr Appartement auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen und auch die Buchung über Wimdu verlief ohne Probleme.

Wir können sie ohne einschränkungen weiterhelfen. Vielen dank an sie für ihre gastfreundlichkeit. Lg waldemar & svenja
Schöne, gemütliche Wohnung mit ausreichend Platz. Wir haben sehr gut geschlafen. Hannelore war äußerst aufmerksam und stets supertoll um uns bemüht. Wir durften über Messenger immer in Kontakt mit ihr stehen und haben uns dadurch bestens aufgehoben gefühlt. Vielen Dank für eine prima Woche in New York/New Jersey! :)
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.
Hannelore is German and has helped us in all questions quickly and easily. Thanks to their advice we had a carefree time in NY. Many Thanks! The two rooms were fine, beds good. However, we had a "hot" time so that cooling in the form of drinks was necessary. The other roommates we hardly get to see. Everything was great!
Hannelore ist Deutsche und hat uns in allen Fragen schnell und unkompliziert geholfen. Dank ihrer Tipps hatten wir eine sorgenfreie Zeit in NY. Vielen Dank! Die beiden Zimmer waren prima, die Betten gut. Wir hatten allerdings eine "heiße" Zeit, so dass Abkühlung in Form von Getränken notwendig war. Die weiteren Mitbewohnerinnen haben wir kaum zu Gesicht bekommen. Alles war prima!
We were two couples and had a very nice stay in Hannelore's apartment!
The bus from NJ to NY is perfect and we had such a little distance from the hustle and NY. Should we again make the trip to NY, we would definitely choose again this accommodation.
Wir waren zwei Pärchen und hatten einen sehr schönen Aufenthalt in Hannelores Apartment!
Die Busverbindung von NJ nach NY ist perfekt und wir hatten so ein wenig Abstand zum hektischen NY. Sollten wir uns mal wieder auf die Reise nach NY machen, würden wir auf jeden fall wieder diese Unterkunft wählen.
We are delighted with our stay in New York. Hannelore has received and gave us a lot of explanations about tours, buses ....
She is very nice and our listening.
His apartment is nice, clean and well located.
We strongly recommend its housing
