The New York region
The apartment is located in the Hamilton Heights neighborhood within Manhattan in New York City. It is on the Upper West Side of the Island between 155th & 157th on St Nicholas Ave. It is located directly above (North) the Harlem neighborhood and directly below (South) the Washington Heights neighborhood. It is about 1.5 miles from Yankee Stadium on the West side of Macombs Dam Bridge.
The apartment is a VERY easy 1/2 block to the Blue line subway (ACE) at 155th. This subway line will get you directly to midtown in 20 min with no transfers. It is also 90 min to JFK airport with only one transfer. It is also 2 blocks away from the Red Line (157th). It is also very close to several Bus lines. Basically this apartment is centrally located to many sources of public transportation. It is important to note that catching a cab can be difficult on St.Nicholas as it is not as busy as Broadway, so generally if you want to catch a cab you will generally have to walk 2 blocks to Broadway, but sometimes can catch one on 155th. There are A LOT of gypsy cabs, but use those at your own risk as they can be shady and try to rip you off.
There is a C-Town grocery store about 3 blocks to the North on St.Nicholas Ave and has decent prices. There are a few deli's and a Chinese Take out joint, but not a lot of sit-down restaurants, as this is a more residential area. Calling for take-out is always an option if you don't want to cook. If you travel 2 blocks down (West) to Broadway you will find the standard McDonalds, Subway Sandwiches, Banks (ATMS) and that kind of business fare.
There is street parking available, just be careful about the times/days you can and cannot legally park. Take care not to park in front of hydrants, double park or park too close to the crosswalk (all of which I personally have been sited for). Tickets will appear seemingly within seconds of the infraction. The apartment is within 2 blocks of a police station, which helps keep the area safe, but parking tickets happen all the time and they are expensive. My advice is if you don't NEED a car, don't get one while in the city. It is so easy to get there you want to go via public transportation, and so easy to get a ticket and waste time, energy and money finding parking that it is usually just not worth having a car. However, if you do choose to bring a car it should only take you about 20 min to find a close parking space during the day. At night it can take a lot longer depending on your luck. I have never had my car broken into while street parking, so I don't think paying for parking is necessary, but that is a decision for you to make and there are parking structures not too far away.
The neighborhood is generally pretty safe. It is a nice pocket in the city. It is tight-knit where the regulars greet you on the street but they can be wary of strangers. Just be kind, direct and hold the door for your neighbors and you will be fine. Be smart, don't go flashing your wallet around. This IS New York. If you look like a target, you may become one. Stay alert, travel in groups if possible, LOOK confident and you will be fine. I lived in this apartment with three kids and choose it because I do feel safe here. It is not as upscale as some neighborhoods, but not as trashy as others. Just a good mid-level area and it is on the up-swing.
