New York City

by PHeymont »

Hello!

I assume you mean Spring of 2015. That said, there's still more information needed before any of us could offer an answer. On tghe other hand, if you're looking for neighbohoods seved by public transit, the good news is that all of them are! Some have better connections for particular destinations than others, but one fare will take you anywhere in the city even if you need to make transfers.

How many of you are coming? Are children included? What are the things you're most interested in seeing or doing? What's your budget? Those are the things that will help make recommendations that work for you.

One thing you should be aware of in looking for apartments: this is a hot-button issue lately, as New York laws prohibit most rentals under 30 days, and you may read articles about lawsuits and the like. However, apartments that are in houses that are not classified as "multiple dwellings" are perfectly legal, and there are many here in Brooklyn and in other parts of the city, though few in Manhattan.

We are planning to go to New York city in the spring of 2014 and would like to rent an appartment which part of town will be better to stay in.  Close to transportation because we do not want to use our car while in town.

 

Thanks

Since you are driving from Ontario, you will want to be in a neighborhood where parking is possible, or at least available at a reasonable price. That is certainly going to take you out of Manhattan!

The issue about apartments really doesn't have to do with the agency; none of them, including airbnb, homeaway, vrbo or tripadvisor, are entirely free of listings that are technically illegal, and enforcement has been very lax, at least until now. What you need to do is determine whether the space is either a) in a one- or two-family building, or b) in a larger building where you share the apartment with the host. 

In the area around me in Brooklyn, there are quite a few listings for legal short-term rentals in brownstones and other one- and two-family buildings. Relatives have used a number of them. Look in areas such as Park Slope, Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, Crown Heights, Prospect Heights, Windsor Terrace for a start. All have good direct-to-Manhattan subway connections.

Brooklyn will certainly be your best bet cost wise & the option I would choose for a week long visit.  If you want to minimize your time on the subway & want the experience of being near times square then I suggest a hotel in the theater district.  Travelzoo sometimes has the candlewood suites (complete with kitchenette) for about $130 a night.  As PHeymont stated, the space will be smaller & the room/parking (add an over size vehicle fee if you have an SUV) will be much more expensive.

I really don't have any suggestions for Rental Apartment as it may cause of worries for you. If i am going to have a tour of nyc so i would prefer to book hotel. Hotel Holiday Inn is a nice choice for comfort seekers.

Indeed, New York is the best place to visit for the tourists who want to visit USA. They should keep NYC at the top of the list to visit. The beauty of the city is the only thing that has attracted many tourists towards itself. Although, there are some famous educational institutes as well that is why students also wants to get visa for the country so that they could complete their studies as well. In those universities they might be issued assignments as well to get it done and score good grades. It is obvious that they have to score good marks and should always look for the professional assignment writers to get it done with unique and quality of content.
