The location is perfect. Down the street you will find a grocery store. A block over is the rec center with all kinds of things for families. My boys spent hours playing basketball at the rec center. The house was stocked with everything we needed included a crockpot in the kitchen. Previous renters had left chairs, 2 bikes, a wagon and boogie boards in the garage, which were an added bonus. The house is less than a 5 minute walk to the beach. We walked or biked to Times Square every day. We loved the location, the backyard setting is so peaceful. My boys fished off the docks and loved the pool and hot tub. We will definitely be back!!
