About the Area
Our apartment building is on a corner, so the guest room is looking out over a family-filled street with a prominent grade school and yet the front of the building offers double street parking as we are across from a well-lit shipping facility. It is a multi-cultural urban neighborhood with many nearby eateries and grocery stores as well as many local churches.

It was an Amazing family home stay, I love it ! Good with the couple of artists yeahhh ! I visit new-York centrer every day by train / bus cool , next trip sée u again bye bye
Even though I was not able to go for my stay with Cynthia, She was very kind and respectful. I will recommend a stay with Cynthia to anyone coming to New York and Nearby New Jersey a million times. She is very insightful about the city. Book a stay with Cynthia and you'd be sure of a very warm welcome home
Très bon séjour, un grand merci Cynthia pour ton accueil et hospitalité
I did not know where I was going to stay when I arrived in New Jersey. Extremely grateful to find this room with Cynthia which is next to the airport. Great host, attentive and genuine. Enjoy a conversation with her.
I was able to walk to the bus or train about 20 min away to get to New York(an hour ride by bus or train). Pretty much did it everyday. Some good pizza places nearby and a diner. Even a local bar with good nightlife. I’d be glad to come stay here again.
Cynthia was amazing! Truly a joy to be around won’t ever forget her and hope to be friends for years!
The host cancelled the booking 3 days before the arrival date.
Loved the place and the conversation, Calm and comfortable to rest. Enjoyed the flavor options from cilantro/coriander to Turmeric for breakfast. Google shows closest bus 115 or SIM33c or fast from highway. I just tested bus 62 is ok, or NJ train if wanted to walk.
