... Station, Empire State, Battery Park, Greenwich, Little Italy, Chinatown, and Fulton Pier and other places. I would recommend the two day if the weather is good. Some do not have interior seating.
To get to our double decker starting point (Times Square) we rode the subway. Each time we used this subway system, we encountered different buskers. Some played classical violin or cellos, others danced or sang a Capella. On ...
I got up and out for the bus. They run about once an hour Boston to NY direct, and I kinda wish I cuaght the next one. No matter. I left at 9 and got dropped off by 2. The last hour or so was taken up purely with driving through the city. The drop off is 14 short blocks south of times square. My base however is in Brooklyn. It took over an hour of riding the tubes to get there. Firstly trains don't run that often and there are no displays telling you when the next one will be. ...
... price tags were concealed we headed upstairs. Well we bought a gift on the 4th floor then had a look silver jewellery, skipped to 2nd and headed back to the first floor where Julie found a ring she really liked.
We also needed purchase another suitcase so we thought that Macy's on 34th Street was the best chance to find a good selection. This store is Macy's flagship department stores. The building's ...
... gave us a collection slip and we went to the cash and payment area and the item had been transported via a carousel and travellator with hundreds of other people's items doing the same thing. We paid and magically the item was waiting for pickup. We picked up our bag, what a well oiled machine it was and an experience. P.S. it only cost $14.95 and I received the invoice in my email the next day! It was around 4.00pm and we swung by Modells but didn't end up buying anything. ...
... terrible United Kingdom... We made our way back to the apartment for a few hours to give our aching feet a good rest and later in the afternoon we got on the Subway to Times Square. I loved this place, it was just so awesome walking around the bustling streets and seeing all the wonderful consumerist culture of America and the strange thing is I'm not being sarcastic, it's genuinely a really cool place. Having walked up a few blocks ...

Historical Traveler Reviews On The Ave Hotel New York City
The rooms are small but comfortable and well set up. The hotel has a pleasant modern style and the neighborhood feels safe. We parked our car (with out of state tags) on the street with no problems. The staff was polite and helpful. The rates are reasonable for NYC. I'd definitely stay at On The Ave again.
The moment we arrived there we felt the brialliant atmosphere and the service of the people were ace all in all it was one of the most delightful hotels I have had the pleasure of staying at. It was the best by far.
Never stay any place else!
I first discovered On The Ave a few years ago when friends came back from a trip and mentioned this great place they stayed at on the upper west side. They lavished nothing but praise for this hotel. They loved everything from the staff to the room to the bathroom amenities. I was skeptical at first...then I saw the web site. It appeared to be everything they said so for my next trip I booked a room. I was not disappointed! On The Ave was everything they said it would be and more. I would encourage anyone to give it a try. You will not be sorry. I have been back many times and have never had anything but great stays.
On The Ave...NYC's Best Kept Secret
If you are looking to stay in NYC at a 4 star hotel at 2 & 3 star prices look no further. My husband and I were guests this past weekend and we had the time of our lives. The room we had was so clean and everything from the bedspread to the pictures on the walls was done in such good taste. There was these bathroom amenities that even matched the decor of the bathroom. The shampoo and conditioner was the best I had ever used. I had asked if I can buy it from a retail store but the housekeeper said it was made in Australia exclusively for the hotel. She must have seen the disappointed look on my face and gave me a couple of bottles to take home with me. The hotel staff was super friendly and courteous. I will definitley go back to stay at On The Ave.
We had the pleasure of staying at On The Ave for one night this past New Years Eve. Despite our unannounced arrival several hours prior to normal check-in time, the staff was very courteous and we were in our room very quickly! I booked through the internet for much less than the going rate, but we were still treated very nicely.
We arrived late (1am) on a Thursday and it took them 40 minutes to help us and a further hour and a half to find our booking-their fault-for which they didn't apologise.
The room was small and not nearly as nice as advertised-such an awful start to a brilliant holiday.

i loved the way the rooms were decorated... very stylish. everything was very clean and comfortable. our room faced Broadway and was surprisingly quiet.
Stayed in mid-Oct. 2002 for a total of 4 nights and enjoyed my stay very much. Hotel is very stylish, quiet and discreet. Rooms can vary from very small standard rooms to spacious penthouse rooms with balconies and views - worth it if you can spend a little more. Rooms are very clean and comfortable. Decor is modern, minimalist style and the comfy beds have very unusual wooden "canopies". Bathrooms are huge for NY; very clean and smartly done in stainless steel and marble and slate tiles. The pics on their website represent the most deluxe rooms available, but even the standard rooms are nice, albeit very small. The neighborhood is quietly residential and offer good restaurants, supermarket, drugstore, etc. Subway is a short 2 blocks away and the restaurant across the street delivers for free 24 hours a day. I would definitely stay there again!
On the Ave is a decent hotel right on 77th and Broadway. The subway stop is convenient, only 2 blocks away. The neighborhood is safe and convenient. A series of small market produce stands are about 1 block away.
Some rooms are different than others. My friend got a shower/tub, bathrobes and a bit more room. My room has a shower with no tub and no bathrobe. No big deal.
The previous review commented on the thin white curtains letting light in. I believe they missed a slightly consealed shade for the window. Now there's no worries on drunken morning slumbers!
I would stay here again.
On The Ave is a splendid base of operations for a Manhatten visit. Upper West Side, convenient to subway (79th St. station) and surrounded by several quality eateries, best of which is Big Nick's Burger & Pizza Joint. A better breakfast you will not find in NYC.
