We have booked our digs in New York for next May! It took a little while back and forth, we had a checklist, Location...proximity to Surtex... bathrooms...bedrooms and roof terrace (obviously)
So we found some nice apartments, mailed them and then waited for them to email us back which they didn't, So we looked again found another which ticked all the boxes GONE.
Great so we booked a Hotel instead its a bit posh... which means we will probably all want a whole new wardrobe and nicer luggage too! it is lovely though and it has a roof terrace (obviously)....
