After moving to New York City, I can finally say I understand why people love it here. It’s the city that never sleeps. It’s the hustle and bustle of Manhattan, but also the charm of Brooklyn. It’s the never-ending streets of modern skyscrapers, as well as the single-file lines of quaint, old brownstones. At all hours of the day, there are so many things to see and do in New York City, making it a top destination for millions of travelers. But while the Big Apple can seem super exciting to visit, it can sometimes feel daunting. Where do you even start? A hotel? A friend’s couch? If it were up to me, I’d book an Airbnb in NYC.

The options go on and on and on, but I’ve gathered eight of the best Airbnbs in New York City so that you don’t have to do all the scrolling yourself. If you’re hoping to be at the center of Manhattan, I handpicked cozy abodes in Greenwich Village and Midtown. But if you want a change of pace and a little less noise, check in at any of the Brooklyn apartments on this list.

In terms of price, our top picks start around $265 a night, though there are also spaces for guests who are down to splurge on a penthouse suite. The Airbnbs in New York City truly run the gamut, and we’re sure you’ll find one on this list that ticks off all your boxes. Happy booking!

If a trendy neighborhood is at the top of your priority list, look no further than this parlor apartment that’s right off of Bleecker Street in Greenwich Village.

I always say all the cool kids live in Williamsburg. Even if you’re only visiting, it’s the hip place to be these days. Fill your schedule with trendy cafes, bars, restaurants and shops. Squeeze in some time basking in the sun by the water at Domino Park, and maybe throw in a few thrift shops as well. Once you’re done exploring this neighborhood, come back to this apartment. It can host up to three guests since it has one double bed and an air mattress.

Airbnb Guest Review: “Jose’s place was perfect for our stay in NYC. It was close to a subway stop which made getting everywhere we wanted to go very easy.

Of all the apartments on this list, this artsy apartment feels the homiest to me.
