CitySonnet begins with a passion for New York, a love of travel and an enthusiasm for introducing visitors to real New Yorkers. Established in Greenwich Village in 1995, we began by representing a few neighborhood accommodations.  We have since expanded with the ever-changing landscape of New York. In addition to popular Manhattan destinations such as Greenwich Village or SoHo, we are now specializing in New York’s most exciting “new” neighborhoods, with exclusive artist lofts in Long Island City.

Call us old fashioned, but CitySonnet is committed to remaining distinctive in the Internet’s enormous travel arena by offering friendly, individualized customer service, not automated e-responses. We personally read and promptly respond to each email.  Your stay is of utmost importance to us and we strive to have open, friendly communication. CitySonnet offers a solid reputation you can trust. But just don’t take our word for it! Pauline Frommer, herself a native New Yorker,


has personally visited CitySonnet accommodations and favorably reviewßed us in her boutique guide to New York, as well as personally recommending us on national television on the Live! With Regis and Kelly.  It also gives us a great honor to be recommended by the same guidebooks we use for our own travel adventures: Lonely Planet, and Time Out.  Additionally CitySonnet has been featured in Conde Nast, the Wall Street Journal, The Sunday Times of London and New York Magazine.

As artists and avid travelers ourselves, one American and one British, we understand the true needs of visitors. Our personal aesthetics allow us to provide attractive, artistic offerings that quite simply lok great; accommodations that truly represent the diversity and richness of New York City. Having lived abroad in Africa and Asia, we firmly believe that staying in private accommodation connects people, makes the world a little smaller, a lot friendlier and increases the mutual understanding that is so important today.
