Thanks guys

Hi Dee,
Ya My family and I went over for a holiday 4 st Paddys day last year and we subletted an apartment in chelsea. It was fabulous! We tracked it down on site called ny urban living.It cost around $1200 for 8 nights between 4 of us, but it was a big apt and could have easily fitted 2 more.craigslist is good for sublets,good luck anyway!

Right on! Sally has got it right, right area, right price for an apartment. If you want to experience the true NY experience, stay away from Times Square and the highly touristy places. I will pick Chelsea, Soho, or the Village.

Coincidentally, I am leaving for NY tonight for the weekend. I am staying at an apartment in the Village and I wouldnt have it any other way.

Try doing a search on the New York Times travel section. I remember seeing ads in there for vacation apartments in the city. Good luck!

Thanks Guys,

Have found the perfect apartment in Murray Hill Area. Everything I need. Craigslist was great and I tried Sublet.com where I found the apartment I'm going to be staying in.

Cheers for the help.
