Click to book Knick Knack now: from £744 per night If you're looking for a convenient NYC apartment without the usual accompaniment of rambling tourists and rush-hour traffic then this is the spot for you. Despite being a little further out, you're only a twenty-five-minute metro ride from Lower Manhattan, whilst being situated just off the East River waterfront, boasting high-rise bars and green expanses overlooking views of Midtown. A wander around the immediate neighbourhood of Greenpoint will have you nestled in a community of creatives with vintage shops, indie coffee houses and new-school restaurants. Back inside, expect to find a modern and colourful space, benefitting from abstract art, wooden furnishings and plenty of natural light pouring in through the patio doors. Speaking of, we loved stepping out onto the private terrace area, complete with seating and expansive views over the skyscraper metropolis. We can think of nothing better than bookmarking the day out here with friends or family. If you have to work during your stay, the sunny nook is ideal for getting your head down while the dedicated office space in the living room is a bright and uplifting spot to tackle work together. With the added benefits of a hotel stay, you'll have fresh pastries & coffee available in the lobby every morning and a car service connecting you to the core of the Big Apple too.

Apple Jam, Plum Guide home in NYC

Click to book Apple Jam now: from £344 per night Whether you’re visiting the Big Apple for a quick break or an extended holiday, this studio apartment in the Financial District offers you a great base to make the most of your stay. When you’re not out seeing the sights, there are plenty of onsite facilities to keep you entertained. You might be playing pool in the communal lounge, working up a sweat in the gym or lazing on one of the rooftop sunbeds (open seasonally). There are plenty of bars, restaurants and coffee shops just a short stroll away, or set the scene with some background music on the record player and rustle up something tasty in the kitchen. This kitchen table could also double as a desk if you’re using the home as your office - remote working is easy thanks to the superfast wi-fi. Quiet nights in are best spent soaking in the bathtub or curled up on the sofa streaming a film on the TV. And if you're at a loose end? Well, then the city that never sleeps is always ready for you. Sleeps up to 4 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom

Click to book Exposure Therapy now: from £150 per night Stunning architectural features, like the exposed brickwork and wooden beams, make this unusual two-bedroom 'bunk' apartment vibrant and unique. It's safe to say you should be pretty friendly with your fellow travellers as there's not much privacy, but anyone looking for a unique home will surely appreciate this space. It only helps that it's located in trendy Greenpoint, where every corner you take provides something new to be discovered. Whether it's the Polish bakery, the weekly market, or the best views of the iconic Manhattan skyline, Greenpoint is a hidden gem. Sleeps up to 4 | 2 Bedrooms | 1 Bathroom

Beaming With Delight, Plum Guide home in New York

Click to book Beaming With Delight now: from £173 per night What was once a cork factory has since been renovated to reveal its beautiful & unique characteristics in industrial-style loft apartments. Situated in Greenpoint Brooklyn, it'd only make sense to highlight the stripped wooden beams and brick walls in this loft. The kitchen doesn't get a ton of natural light, but we're being nit-picky here. It's otherwise a nice choice outside the hustle and bustle of the city. Sleeps up to 2 | 1 Bedroom | 1 Bathroom
