New York holiday apartments
The wife and I are thinking of doing a few nights in NY next year, and are considering some of these holiday let sites where you can rent someones apartment/house instead of going to a hotel.
Has anyone ever done stuff like this before? Any pitfalls we should watch out for?
Also, where would be the best area to look for a place in NY? We want to do the normal touristy things (empire state/central park/times sq/statue liberty). So looking for somewhere vaguely central. I know we'll need to use the subway to get around but at least an area near enough to most of these would be good.
Lastly, are there any other sights people can recommend? We did want to perhaps visit some museums there, any recommendations?
