    We are within walking distance to transportation to Manhattan.

    We are located in New Jersey, a different state, but very close to NYC. It is a very safe residential family neighborhood. It's the best of both worlds! Outside the hustle and bustle of the world's famous city but very easy to get to major attractions by public transporation.

    You can also visit our location in Detroit if you are interested!
