Wow, such a New York apartment. Roy has a plethora of books and records, great stories and NY insights.
The location is great, a couple of minutes walk from central park, and easy walk to places like Times Square, all the great buildings, shopping.
Loads of restaurants within a short walk, some of NYs best restaurants are right down the street. There are Diners in the area, as well as all the street food vendors which do really good food.
The subway is close, and if you are wanting to do the open-top bus tours, they go right past the top of the street.
Roy is an interesting character, has lead a fascinating life and can guide the traveller as to where the secret great spots are.
If I am in NY again, I will definitely stay with Roy.
