The cottage by the water

You want a bit of room to breathe in the city? This gorgeous Old Howard Beach spot will give you plenty of that, with some beautiful views out across the water. You're just five minutes from the subway and around 15 minutes Rockaway Beach, which you'll definitely want to check out. But really, just look at it! Lovely.

The Central Park viewpoint

Just look at that vista! Awesome. Really quite awesome. You can imagine yourself gulping down those views right? Sure you can. This cute studio apartment is intriguing inside but don't get too attached to what you see in the pics. You see, the furnishings and artwork change 'with the seasons', with the owners liking to mix it up a lot. We can behind that.

A Chelsea duplex with a terrace

Close to the banks of the Hudson, right in the heart of Chelsea, the location here is a cracker. But you know what? It's ace inside, too. Thanks of course to some cool fixtures and fittings (including a gorgeous spiral staircase) and a very cute little terrace offering some jaw-dropping views of the street below and beyond.

Uptown Hoboken chic

Want to step away from the throng a bit? This classy spot is on a quiet residential street but the great news is that there's a lot of fun in easy reach, too. There's a thriving little neighbourhood within a short walk but you've got great access to the city, too. Jumping on the ferry into Manhattan is as easy as pie.

The East Village oasis

Well, if you're staying in New York you might as well stay in the East Village right? Restaurants, bars, music venues, general buzz, it's all here. This charming condo is close to the L line subway so you can jump on that for further exploration of the city but really, you might as well just dig right into this part of town. This is where it's at you know?

Lower East Side Loft With Panoramic Views

If you’re willing to spend, this one-bedroom unit will run you $2,000 a night. But the truly unique loft, which has exposed brick walls and a whopping 30 windows, is an incredible (and large) space with 360-degree views of multiple landmarks including the Empire State Building, Brooklyn Bridge and East River. A common roof deck is the cherry on top.

Entire flat close to The Met and Central Park

Pet-friendly, smart-access, super-secure, stunning location close to Central Park, beautiful innards... this one’s a corker. Oh, and there’s maid service every week. And, well, just look at it – this is the place for a luxe New York stay. Did you see the floor-to-ceiling marble in the bathroom btw? Pretty cool.
