Why Ray Wick chose Hamilton Heights

This private, full-floor apartment is located in a private Owner occupied townhouse, not a large anonymous apartment building. Although you will be self-sufficient in your apartment, the Owner is always available to you for whatever you may need during your stay: tips on sites and getting around NYC, arranging taxi service, emergency repairs, restaurant advice. Much like a private concierge. The townhouse is safe and secure with multiple entry locks, fire & safety systems, well-lighted entry and stairways, outside video security. Your family can be assured of privacy, safety, cleanliness and convenience. The neighborhood is served by 5 Subways with the nearest only a 2 block, 2 minute walk. All destinations are only a few minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

Your private townhouse apartment will make you feel like your are returning home at the end of each day. Spacious enough to spread out and relax with all the conveniences of home: a fully equipped kitchen, high-def cable TV, free W-Fi, and, of course, big comfortable beds. Live your holiday like a successful New Yorker.

Comfort and friendliness in Upper Manhattan

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my Mother spent six wonderful days at Ray's comfortable spacious and well located brownstone apartment. The area has everything...its predominantly Hispanic with a mix of students from the nearby Columbia University...everybody is so friendly ..chatting and smiling outside busy shops and cafes...we never felt anything other than safe walking around the area both a night time and during the day...the location is as Ray had said a short subway ride from downtown Manhattan so essentially you have the best of both worlds and always have the retreat and comfort of returning to your apartment after a busy day shopping or sightseeing around the city...I've stayed in a hotel downtown before but never again...the sense of living in a living breathing community is more enriching and leaves one with greater sense of having experienced a city. The local Grange restaurant has to be visited (Great Burgers and fine craft beer with lovely friendly staff) ..Cafe was our daily breakfast haunt (simple delicious breakfasts and homemade muffins to die for!..great coffee and hot chocolate too and yes, more friendly staff)...nearby River side park is a must..I ran through it each morning and alongside the Hudson River and down to the northern tip of Central park....picturesque and peaceful and safe..General Grants memorial building can be seen near the entrance to the park and is worth a viewing....one evening I went to the Smoke Jazz club (2751 Broadway) where you can enjoy live Jazz and eat good food at same time (be sure to phone and book as it sells out)...So...yes, I would highly recommend this Apartment and will certainly return for more of the same...Ray was a fantastic host ...meeting us at the Apartment showing us around and giving us all the information on the area including a useful map. On our departure he arranged a Cab to JFK and looked after our Bags while we enjoyed our last day in New York...10 out of 10 :)

An amazing stay in New York

  • 5 of 5

A very clean, comfortable apartment. There is plenty of room to spread out and to properly unpack if you're staying longer than a couple of days. The listing accurately described the apartment. The owner provided excellent customer service with the provision of maps and where to eat in the neighbour hood etc. The subway station was very close - a five minute walk away. This line took us most of the places we wanted to go. There was a local laundry on the corner about 30 metres away. You could do the laundry yourself or have it done for you. A supermarket was about a block away - you passed it on the way to or from the subway. We enjoyed the benefits of staying in a neighbour hood a bit removed from midtown and downtown Manhattan. It was good to interact with the locals and to practise some Spanish. We would definitely recommend the apartment to friends and relatives and if we return to New York we will definitely stay there again.

Fabulous stay, thanks Ray!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed on the top floor of Ray's 3 storey apartment for over a week. Great location and safe, an easy trip on subway to downtown. The apartment comfortably accommodated the 5 of us. It was our first time to NY and was great to finally met Ray who was very welcoming and quickly made us feel at home after a long flight from Australia,. Ray provided helpful tips on getting around NY and nearby places to eat. I would highly recommend his place to stay. Thanks! Richard & Michelle

Perfect stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here at Ray’s Apartment over the Christmas period on our visit to NYC, and it was perfect for our needs.

After returning from a days sight seeing in the city you have everything you need right on your doorstep from supermarkets, pizza outlets, burgers, pharmacy and launderettes should you need one.

The metro is literally just a few minutes walk from the apartment and such good value for money, it cost us just a little over $90 dollars for a weeks metro card that got us around to every where we needed to see, the card is a must and will save you a fortune in comparison to NY taxi’s.

Ray’s apartment was exceptionally clean and very comfortable, it was just perfect for us with plenty of space to relax and unwind. The bedroom was very well decorated and the bed was super comfortable, the pull out sofa beds were also very comfortable and great to just lay back on enjoy some Christmas movies 😀

The kitchen was filled with utensils if you would want to cook, and it also had a typical American fridge (huge) to chill your drinks and milk.

There was a massive supply of super soft towels on hand for our needs which was great, as we’ve stayed in some places on our travels and had only one towel per person for a week.

If visiting NYC I would highly recommend a stay at this apartment as it offers great value for money.

One last thing.......the Chinese takeaway at the end of the road to the left is delicious!! 😉

Great stay, I recommend it!

  • 5 of 5

I fully recommend this accommodation when staying in NYC. The apartment was roomy, clean, very comfortable, the neighborhood is very nice and quiet, with lots of deli's and restaurants nearby. The nearby subway station takes you downtown in about 25 minutes. And Ray, the host, was the best! Very nice, accommodating, open to give advice on anything from suitable restaurants, pizza delivery, yoga studios etc. He's just a super nice guy and I would stay here again next time without any doubt!

Fantastic Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at this apartment for 12 days while she participated in a summer dance intensive program and we were completely satisfied by our experience. The apartment exceeded our expectations in every way. The property is very close in proximity to all of the conveniences that you need... food market, drug store, restaraunts,etc... It takes just a few minutes to walk to the subway. We traveled into the city every day via the subway, it was easy to navigate and reasonably priced if you buy an unlimited pass for the week. The apartment was clean, well equipped, and spacious. We were able to prepare meals, and have plenty of space to relax at the end of the day. The apartment is located in a very quiet community and we felt very safe. Ray, the owner, is wonderful! He is very accomodating and helpful. We felt like we had our own personal conceirge during our stay. He helped explain the subway system, provided a multitude of restaurant and sightseeing suggestions and helped us secure a taxi upon departure. You could stay at a hotel, however, it will cost significantly more and you will not have nearly as much space. I am glad we chose to stay in Ray's apartment and would highly recommend it.
