... your doll in the Tea Rooms overlooking 5th Avenue. After we'd all had a good old laugh and watched the very earnest doll activities being undertaken we left the store and noted the not insignificant number of very expensive cars idling on the street outside the store, each with a chauffeur waiting along side the car. Different world much!?!
We spent the rest of the day wandering around 5th avenue: Trump ...
... was to the Broadway show, Spiderman, Turn of The Dark. My favorite part of the show was whenever they were doing stunts.
Today, we went to the Sony Wonder Technology Lab. Even though we got there late, they still had tickets. To get there, we had taken two different subway lines. After we got the tickets, we took an elevator to the fourth floor. By the way, the Sony Wonder ...
What a hot nights sleep, in fact, not much sleep, so we shouted ourselves a much needed "chill out" in our hot room. We needed a morning to plan how we were going to take bites at The Big Apple. Cafe Gitane in the hotel is gorgeous and a wonderful place to spend time organising ourselves.
... for us, I can only imagine what it is like to be on stage hearing so many people screaming and squealing and singing along. It was also fortunate that we were able to see the show from very close to the front where we had lock waving to us and blowing kisses from the stage, and then we were seated up in the gods to take in the whole show, which included fireworks and multiple stages. It was a very impressive show, Taylor is a cute girl with a great voice. But of course ...
... relaxing stroll, after the hectic previous days.
We walked down, and across, the park, then caught a bus to the Frick Museum, a place We would strongly recommend to anyone . It was a private residence build around an enclosed courtyard and much of the magnificent furniture is still there. It has a softer, more homely atmosphere than the larger museums. The collections are outstanding and include Toulouse Lautrec, Bastian, Gainsborough, Constable, Turner, Rembrandt, Vermeer, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Woogo - Central Park New York City
I wanted to stay in New York two days. My options were to stay overnight in New York or ride the LIRR two days in a row, back and forth from family in Long Island. Cost was a factor, location was a factor, and cleanliness was a concern. For a amazing amount of $130, including taxes, we stayed in a VERY CLEAN "studio" apartment. It was the size of an average hotel room, but was well equiped; a sofa bed, a bistro tabel and chairs, a small fridge, toaster, coffee maker, 2 burner stove, and real mugs, glasses, silverware. The theme was contemporary, with clean lines. The bed appeared new; firm without lumps. The bathroom was all sleek marble tiles, the towels were thick large and soft. We had a streetside room, and the building across the street was built in 1904 with awesome architecture- it was a nice view. The residential neighborhood was clean, there were great grocery stores a block away, and the subway was just up the street, half a block away. The Museum of Natural History was a short walk away. I would recommend it highly, and I would certainly return on our next trip to NYC.
I was apprehensive after reading mixed reviews, but in my one week stay I found that Yourstay CP excellent--if you know what to expect.
As a young woman visting new york solo and for the very first time, accomodation was my biggest worry in planning my trip. I found Yourstay on hotelclub and the only thing that made me question my gut feeling was reviews here, and other reviews about the company itself, but after my other choices of hotels (the Beacon, the Salisbury) were booked out I ended up back booking Yourstay- Central Park. And it turned out to be so fine and nothing to worry about.
I have NOTHING positive to say about our stay at Yourstay Central park. We encountered a string of disappointments. We were promised a large one-bedrom apartment with a queen or king size bed . . . but we received a TINY room with a full-sized bed. I would say that this company is not far from being fraudulent. I complained to the London office, but they denied all claims. The New York property manager (David Liebovitz) is a fraud. He claimed the unit was 650 square feet, but by my measurements it was well under 450 square feet. The "free" internet access wasn't working, nor was the cable TV. I was asked by the the property manager to call the internet company myself to sort out the problem, and was surprised to learn that internet service had been recently suspended due to "non-payment". We had no internet or cable TV for the first two days of our stay. I really needed internet access . . . to find another hotel for my family. Be careful with this property!
I wouldn't stay here again. We arrived with a car full of luggage to unload and there is no loading zone...you have to double park on the street. They had no cart or help for unloading. This is an apartment building where some of the apartments are rented out for short stays, so you can't expect the same amenities you'd get from a hotel. We went through Hotels for reservations and we, plus 2 others guest who arrived when we did, didn't get the type of rooms promised. We complained and they were able to switch us, but one family had signed up for a 2 bedroom apt. and ended up with 2 studios. We got a studio that "slept 3". There was a queen size bed and pull out single bed sofa, which was very thin and uncomfortable to sleep on. It is very small for 3 people. The studio for 2 people is even smaller, basically a queen bed and bureau and kitchette with no extra space...it better be two people who really get along well! The room was clean and modern, which was nice, and the kitchenette well outfitted. The furnishings were very nice and there was a lot of high tech stuff-flashy TV/DVD/Video and stereo system (which we never used). The front desk is basically your usual apartment building front desk...not a customer service desk like you'd find in a hotel...Some people might not mind all this, but I wasn't happy with it.
YourStay is definitely the best serviced apartments company
I've stayed with my family at the Central Park Apartments of Yourstay.
I must say that the check-in process was so quickly. There is a 24 hours porter in the building and he gave us keys, and we went straight to the apartment. The apartment was well clean ,with new towels and linens. There was DVD, Cable, Air Conditioning, Fully-Equipped kitchen and GYM.
The apartment is located very close to Central Park and to the Natural History Museum and Metropolitan Museum.
We really enjoied our stay in the building, the staff was very friendly.
Everyone should realize that a serviced apartment like this is better than booking a room in hotal. Great value for our money.
We highly recommend this apartments and this company.
Excellent Apartments and Good Value for Money
We usually stay at the 5 star Ritz-Carlton on Central Park, this is the first time we stayed in an apartment in NY.
The apartment at YourStay Central Park are spacious, well designed and tastefully furnished.
The location is also great, 5 minutes walk from Central Park, you're also short walking distance from Lincoln Centre and many exclusive restautrants and bars.
The staff was friendly and educated. A small problem with the Cable in our apartment was quickly resolved by the building manager.
Great value for money, we already recommended it to our friends.
YourStay Central Park - Excellent Experience
We stayed at tempo (YourStay Central Park Building) twice.
We heard a recommendation from a neighbour while exercising in our Gym.
The building is 2 blocks away from Central Park, newly rennovated, tastefully furnished, 24 doorman and state of the art gym.
Compared to other apart hotel we stayed before, this was by far our best experience, warmly recommended.
The only minor problem with free wireless internet connection was quickly resolved by the maintenance staff.
I picked this hotel because of all the positive reviews noted already on Trip Advisor. I just did'nt feel the positive reviews were all that justified. First of all when our driver tried to find the building we were able to locate the street address but the building said nothing about "Your Stay - Central Park". Instead it just said "Tempo". I went in and the desk clerk confirmed we were in the right place.
I recently had experience with the yourstay company in London. The building was still under construction, including taped up carpets in the hallways, debris in the stairwells, and an elevator which had insulation covered by a cloth curtain: no walls. Several of the promised amenities were absent including a telephone. Neither was there a telephone in the lobby. We were two woman travelling alone on business. We needed a telephone for many reasons, including safety. We were assigned a seventh floor apartment. The building was in a very isolated area, surrounded by office buildings, which were empty on the weekends and at night. Some were still under construction.
