Extended stay apartments in New York City are relatively easy to find as the city has a large stock of private condominium apartments which are routinely offered for long term stays. These apartments are available through a number of agencies and they are usually offered fully furnished with various different amenities like free gym access and free internet access. Apart from these private condominium apartments there are certain organizations like condo hotels in New York City that are equipped with extended stay apartments which are offered with many upscale and high end amenities that are suited to the executive lifestyle.
