New York City Accommodation Guide

From early November till mid December, we spent 7 weeks living in glorious, gritty, amazing, intimidating, spectacular New York City. Our plans changed during our stay and we ended up moving around a little more than we hoped for.

Our first stay for 2.5 weeks was at the AKA Times Square Serviced Apartments. Located at 123 West 44th Street, only 1 block from Times Square, the location could not be beat to throw ourselves head first into the frantic city pace. We had a spacious 2 bedroom apartment which although had no view, it was whisper quiet which is unheard of in the city. Our kitchen wasn’t huge but more than adequate to prepare breakfast and lunch for the kids. On the top floor was a new communal space which included a terrace, residents lounge, bar and work space.

Heavenly Hamps Life

(Back tracking to November 2014)

The ride was a rough one and the kids were hard to keep entertained after being in the car for 3 hours already. The wind blew gale force outside which meant our options were limited to sitting in the family sized booth, watching the ferry roll and bob in the waves.

Powder Days

 

Yesterday Sam and I skied the back bowls of Vail. For those who don’t know, the back bowls are infamous with skiers all over the world. Predominantly made of black and double black runs, the bowls are always a challenge, even for the most advanced skier. The 10 back bowls are steep, tree lined, with glade runs and meadows. We also skied Blue Sky Basin which has a shallow vertical drop with more gladed runs and wildlife too!
