Jimmy and his wife are the nicest people in the world. We stayed here a couple nights before the NYC Marathon. His place is literally less than 800m from the marathon bus drop off. Additionally, he offered to drive us to many of the places we needed to go - like the Staten Island Ferry Terminal, Dinner, the Convenient Store to make sure we had what we needed for race morning and to the starting line the morning of the race. The room and bathroom look exactly like in the picture - It's a small room with a closet. The room is across the hall from the bathroom which you will share with him and his wife. They were very accommodating and used showers around our schedule. Additionally, my fiancé took my phone with him on race morning and I couldn't update my GPS watch. I was having a panic attack and Jimmy was kind enough to download the app on his phone so I could sync it to the satellite before my race! If you're looking for a good deal, with super nice hosts that is convenient to the marathon start and the SI Ferry Terminal then I would highly recommend this place.
Jimmy was a great host. I was running the New York Marathon and needed to rest my legs before the race. I wanted a location close to the start. Jimmy's home was about 1/2 mile from the start. Quite and safe location. Jimmy also picked me up from Manhattan. I would stay here again. Thanks Jimmy.
