NYC Hideaway is an awesome place to stay. Chris thought of everything when he decided to make his home into a rental for vacation. This is so much better than a hotel room. Everything in the apartment is new and updated. Central air conditioner and everything is clearly mark and the instructions are all in a book for getting around the apartment. There are no hotels that I know of with access to a backyard and a barbecue grill. You can pick lettuce and herbs from the garden & did I forget to mention that there is a fire pit as well! There is also the use of two bicycles for riding around in the area. The neighborhood was very quiet. If you have a rental car, no problem, there is plenty of parking and it is free. The area is safe, yes even at night. I sat on the front porch in the evening and in the morning with my cup of coffee. There are stores in the area in case you need something and some good restaurants. I found a supermarket and purchased groceries for the week. The kitchen comes fully equipped with everything if you'd like to whip up your own cooked/homemade meal. If I needed something, Chris was a text message away. He was able to help me get where I needed to go by car or train. Chris also recommended places to eat with a relaxing atmosphere. Chris, thank you so much for the great stay!! So if you are looking for a place to relax when visiting NY, I highly recommend the Hideaway in The Bronx.
