Make yourself at home in a cozy room in Manhattan, 3 blocks from the subway ( A, C and 1 train).
With A train, it's less than 20 mins train ride to midtown, 42nd st/Times Square, Central Park.
C and 1 train run local, it will take longer.
If you're looking to be really close to city center, you'll be paying 2x as much and getting a much smaller space.
Let me know if you need early check in/ late check out, I can usually accommodate your request.
