Top 20 Kips Bay, New York vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Kips Bay is a mainly residential neighbourhood, moments away from the rush of Midtown, which has lovely waterfront views across to Brooklyn and Queens. The neighbourhood combines historic brick townhouses with new high-rise apartments, and is home to some of the country's best hospitals - a good neighbourhood for the hypochondriacs amongst you perhaps? Some people accuse it of being non-descript and, it's true, it's definitely not going to win any prizes for being hip or characterful. It does offer good value for Manhattan though, and neighbourhoods have been described as worse things than non-descript. We can't all be the coolest kid on the block after all. One thing to know – New York is a very busy city with lots going on (it’s not called “the city that never sleeps” for nothing). As part of an authentic New York experience, you can expect a fair amount of noise and construction coming from the streets, whether it be roadwork, scaffolding, or honking yellow taxis.
