Despite the Big Apple’s brilliance, tourists would be silly to not take advantage of what the entirety of New York state has to offer. Business and leisurely opportunities are vast wherever you go in the state, and the number of amazing serviced apartments in New York is no different.
Taking a business trip to somewhere as large and extravagant as New York can be a stressful experience in itself, so it is important for corporates that the process of choosing accommodation to stay in is simple and hassle-free. Standard hotels and many short term, temporary housing options nowadays are so similar, and picking the right place for you can seem like a minefield.
Serviced apartments in New York, however, are distinctively different to one another. Whilst each SITU luxury apartment in New York is guaranteed to come with a fully-equipped kitchen, on-site washing facilities, access to free Wifi and an allocated parking spaces, bookers can also pick and choose where they stay based on a wide range of property amenities. Expats visiting the state might expect their corporate housing in New York to have en-suite bathrooms, a balcony, a garden, an on-site gym or restaurant, or even a swimming pool. With our serviced New York business apartments, the possibilities are endless.
The north-eastern state covers over 55,000 square miles of land and is home to over 19 million people. Its bordering states are Pennsylvania and New Jersey to the south, and Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Vermont to the east. Numerous bodies of water also border the state, with Lake Erie and Ontario separating the state from Canada in the west, whilst the southeastern Long island looks out onto the North Atlantic Ocean. Its capital, Albany, is essentially dwarfed by the legendary New York City.
Comprised of the five boroughs, Manhattan, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens and Staten Island, New York City attracts over sixty million tourists each year.

Much like the amount of corporate housing in New York, the state's economy is growing quicker than ever.

Incentives for overseas investment are endless too. Taxes are at their lowest since 1917, a $100 billion plan is underway to renovate the state’s infrastructure even further and developments to airports, roads and bridges across New York have created a world-class transportation hub. Financial incentives are also plentiful. The Innovative NY Fund and Empire State Economic Development Fund (EDF), are just two programs that provide financial support to assist diverse business needs.

You could visit the Statue of Liberty sculpture, a colossal American icon, or you could see the famous Times Square, literally bursting with life, colour and things to do. Only around the corner from the Square is the incredible Empire State Building, overlooking the state’s beauty and skyscraper skyline.

More than just a patch of greenery, visitors can relax in the many gardens, admire the remarkable architecture and enjoy the serene Park zoo. Believe it or not, there is more to New York than its Big Apple. For instance, there is Niagara Falls, one of North America’s great natural wonders. Along the Canadian-US border, the extraordinary falls can be panoramically viewed from the observation tower. Additionally, millions of visiting tourists enjoy the many complimentary dining options and gift shops. Just south is the beautiful city of Buffalo and the popular Theodore Roosevelt Natural Historic Site.
The museum stands where Roosevelt first became President, and its quality exhibits are amazing commemorations of his time in power.
