We love our very bright and comfortable apartment and we are sure that so will you. We have one bedroom with a latex queen size bed, one huge studio, one totally renovated bathroom, and open-planned kitchen with dishwasher off of the extra large and bright living-dining room facing Riverside Park and the Hudson River with spectacular views. Amenities include 2 common washers and driers for the residents of the same floor.

We are on the 9th floor of a 21 storey building with 24 hour security by beautiful Riverside Park and the Hudson River, just 2 minutes away from the subway. Parking is available in the building.

Riverside Park is one of the only eight officially designated scenic landmarks in the City of New York and Manhattan’s most spectacular waterfront park, stretching four miles from 72nd to 158th Streets affording views of the Hudson River along its serpentine route. You will also enjoy Cherry Walk, a four-mile long path along the Hudson River.

This historic neighborhood is very safe and quiet and yet close to everything. The population is a good combination of mostly Columbia faculty and students. Our subway line (1-2:3) easily connects our neighborhood with all gay neighbourghoods: Hell’s Kitchen, Chelsea and the West Village

We loved staying at Javier and Francisco's apartment in NY. And, they were perfect to arrange with. Everything was arranged as planned and the place was ready for our arrival.

The apartment is exactly as you see in the pictures. Very clean, large (by NY standards!) and with very easy access to the subway to take you to all the places that you'll want to see. There are a few neighborhood restaurants and places to get groceries. You will have just what you need for a city stay.

We would consider the apartment again.

This was a perfect exchange in every way: great location, wonderful apartment, and easy to arrange. The apartment is well served by both the subway and bus lines. The apartment itself is spacious and bright with large windows overlooking Riverside Church & Park. Very nice! Great local restaurants and food stores. Right on the Hudson River Park which goes to whole length of Manhattan. Their apartment was immaculate, and they left ours the same. We hope to have the opportunity for another exchange in the future. Thanks guys!

We really enjoyed our stay at Javi's and Francisco's apartment. Great location overlooking the river where I did my morning runs and walks. At nights is very quiet due to the building built right by the river and a park.
They have a very well stocked kitchen for somebody who likes to cook. There's a good store nearby where you can get quality groceries. Most of them are organic. The store is so huge that you can almost get lost there.
The building itself is very looked after with 24/7 security desk.
Guys left our beach place very clean and tidy.
So if you get an exchange offer from these guys you shouldn't doubt whatsoever. Go for it:)

I just had a wonderful stay at Javier and Francisco's place in NYC.

Their place is very nice and clean, a few blocks from the MTA stop. They came to my place a day before I left, so we were able to meet. They are both very nice guys, great hosts, and great guests.

would definitely stay there again.
