... on to the world trade centre - site of the 9/11 attack. There is a definate somberness about the site. The reality of it is also much more personal when you talk to New Yorkers and hear their personal stories - we chatted to a guy working in a book store and he was on his way to view the towers that day and got called back to work - very very real!!
Back home looking forward to a rest day on Sunday!!
... was more amazingness and a lot of stuff that I recognised from my old school days. I finally made it to the correct wing and couldn't find Jason anywhere. I was surrounded in Monet and Van Gogh and Degas Oh My, taking it all in and in the end Jason found me. He soon whisked off again as he had stealthily joined a walking tour with a guide and was learning all about brush-stokes and light. By the time we had to leave we were exhausted. We grabbed a quick dog and went home for some ...

Eventually I boarded and was UK bound. I had mixed feelings about this. Park of me felt sad

It's the time of year to really make a girl feel a bit Grimm, not to mention short! When one walks by they descend over you and you can't help but star up in awe.

Historical Traveler Reviews West Eleventh Historic Townhouse Apartments New York City
Our home away from home
My partner and I have stayed here twice within a 5 month period. It has become our home away from home. We stayed in the Monet on both visits. It is comfortable and was recently painted and redecorated. The owners are helpful without being intrusive. We will definitely be back!
West Village Oasis
This is a little jewel in the West Village. Owners are attentive and helpful. Neighborhood can't be beat. The apartments are clean and well-appointed and you can't beat the price in NYC. Only caveat is that the trek up the long, brownstone stairs to 4th floor where our apartment was located is a real chore. Anyone would walking issues should ask for the 1st floor suite--which we absolutely loved.
Beautiful, Charming, Quaint
This place is like a private little oasis amid the hustle of New York City. Right in the middle of a beautiful neighborhood, too. Very elegant, well cared-for, and the owners (Hercules and Therese) made us feel like family. I really didn't want to leave.
Wonderful West Village Location
My Fiancee and me were pleasantly surprised by out stay at West Eleventh this past December 04'. We were having a difficult time finding decent lodging and were tipped off to this Inn by another Inn owner in the city, Lucky us!
We were little skeptical about staying in the village, but the location, hospitality and the just plain charm of this little find had us feeling that we found the best deal in NYC. West 11th will defiantly be our choice for lodging on our trips to NYC.
BTW, don't miss the cup cakes from the bakery on the corner, just look for the lines.
In December we stayed at the West Eleventh Townhouse in Greenwich Village in New York City. It was a delight!
The comfortable, relaxed one-bedroom was an oasis when we returned at the end of the day after enjoying the hustle and bustle of Manhattan during the Christmas season. And the quiet of the lovely "real New Yorker" neighborhood and the apartment itself was perfect!
We were in the Monet. I must admit that I had initial qualms about the comfort of the rattan furniture -- but the sofa and its comfy pillows and throw were perfect for a little R&R after our daylong visit to MOMA.
Lots of nearby conveniences -- a deli, restaurants, including the reknown Magnolia Bakery -- were appreciated.
Loved West Eleventh
Having never visited New York before, we felt so lucky to have found West Eleventh. We were on the last week of our honeymoon and after having had a fantastic time in Fiji, New Zealand and San Francisco we were not expecting New York to come out tops but it did!! In large part this was due to West Eleventh and our wonderful hosts Therese and Hercules. They were warm, friendly and helpful but not at all intrusive. The apartment was cosy, comfortable and homely. 19th century townhouses, tree-lined streets, cool shops, restaurants, cafes and there we were, right in the middle of it all !! I would highly recommend West Eleventh Townhouse to anyone looking for a warm, welcoming and homely place to stay in New York.
West Village Sojourn
Charming little place in the heart of the West Village. Great living room, large enough to entertain, small bedroom, petite kitchen, tastefully furnished. We definitely plan on returning.
Neighborhood Gem in W. Village
If you don't mind long staircases, this is a find in a great neighborhood. Outstanding hosts, well furnished,clean, fully equipped with luxury linens and towels and its quiet. Very hip at the top of the Village, next to Chelsea and the Meatmarket, around the corner from Magnolia Bakery and luxury shops. The better small restaurants are a short walk on W. 4th St.; the Hudson River new parkway just 2 blocks. This is for former NY'ers looking for a slice of what was or those wanting to experience "the life" for a short while. Subway is close, cabs to Tribeca, East Village, etc. reasonable- but to Midtown not.
Authentic West Village Living
Unique, large, studio alcove apartments, very high ceilings, each custom decorated with refined taste. A historical district and building, not a re-creation, the real thing from around 1840.
Your owner hosts, Therise and Hercules, are long time Greenwich Village residents with encyclopedic knowledge of NYC.
Perhaps the most beatiful block in NY, it is also so quiet you will wonder how this could be Manhattan.
A sanctuary in the Village
West-Eleventh Townhouse has it all. Outside the front door is vibrant Greenwich Village. Inside is a virtual sanctuary; an old townhouse with delightful and caring hosts who provide lovely accommodations and maximum privacy at great value. I signed on for three months and I'm extending for nine.
