Hi guys! If you're looking for an authentic New York trip you should stay in the East Village, West Village, or Williamsburg. If you stay in the EV stay here! Awesome apartment in the heart of the East Village. Right in front of the park (not a lot of places like that in NYC), and down the street from the best food and bar scene in the city. The apartment doesn't face the street so there's no noise. You would be sharing the apartment with one other roommate and his dog (black lab).
