NYC Micro Apartments

NYpost.com’s article “Small price to pay” interviews 3 people who live in apartments in New York City that are 105 square feet or smaller. These folks have to do dishes in the shower, sit sideways on the toilet and can’t turn around in their own shower, but these sacrifices are made so they can be in the heart of New York City on a budget.

Eddie Rabon, who lives in a 55 square feet apartment in Hell’s Kitchen is the most extreme case. He can spread his arms and touch both opposing walls, and the longest part of his apartment is 12.5 feet long. He can’t turn around in the shower and taller friends can’t close the bathroom door if they need to sit

Fortunately, Churchill has many spacious furnished rental apartments in  New York City.  These apartments are perfect for corporate housing and short-term stays. Please contact us for more details.

The Truth Behind the Most Popular Corporate Housing Myths

In her April 2009 Mobility article, Corporate Housing Myths Debunked, Kimberly Smith discusses some of the most important aspects of the corporate housing market and debunks some of the most famous myths associated with the industry.

True or False – Corporate Housing Is Just an Extended Stay Hotel in Disguise

FALSE

Compared to Hotels, Corporate Housing Offers:

– Cheaper temporary housing
– Apartments and townhouses with more square footage
– A like-home feel in a residential environment
– Many more amenities, such as housekeeping and full-kitchens
– Safety provided by on-site 24-hour security

True or FalseA Company Can Easily Do Corporate Housing for Less

FALSE

Companies who try to offer their own corporate housing most often end up handing over the corporate relocation to corporate providers who have it down to a science. Factoring in the set-up costs, delivery fees, and the money that goes into furnishing the apartment and keeping up the utilities, as well as the time involved in setting up corporate housing, most companies cannot afford to handle corporate housing themselves.

True or FalseCorporate Housing Is For People Other Than Just the Business Traveler

TRUE

Although the corporate housing industry is known for catering to business executives and relocating professionals, corporate housing is also widely used by:
-Traveling nurses
-Military personnel
-Displaced homeowners
-Government officials
-Students attending college
-Families in between homes

True or FalseNot All Corporate Housing Companies and Leasing Agents are the Same

TRUE

There are several different companies who provide temporary housing. They differ by several factors:
-Rates
-Location
-Services
-Accreditation
-Experience
-Protection
-Policies

Churchill Corporate Services is an industry leader with affordable rates and a wide-selection of temporary housing locations. Some of Churchill’s other services include furniture rental, disaster housing, and apartment management.

Stunning photos of Sin City

All of Hawkes’s Las Vegas photos will be published in a book called Las Vegas At Night.

80th anniversary of the Loew’s Theater in Jersey City

The Loew’s Jersey Theater in Journal Square recently celebrated its 80th anniversary. The original theater, opened on September 28th, 1929 can accommodate over 3,000 patrons. Over the years, the theater experienced some changes, with the Loew’s Corporation subdividing the theater into three smaller theaters in 1974 and finally shutting down in 1986. The city of Jersey City eventually purchased the theater and began restoration in 1993.

After years of restoration, the Loew’s Jersey Theater is now a not-for-profit arts center showcasing “the art of American entertainment” which includes concerts, touring musicals and children’s programs.It is also a popular venue for film and photography shoots. The lobby was featured in a scene in the film, The Last Days of Disco as well as being featured in a 2007 Geico commercial.

Spending 36 Hours in Nashville

When the New York Times spent 36 hours in Nashville, TN, reporter Keith Mulvihill found that there was more to Music City than music.

In Nashville, “there’s more to Nashville than country music, especially in the once-sleepy neighborhoods that now beat to a different rhythm,” says Mulvihill, “districts like East Nashville and 12 South thrive with lively bars, stylish restaurants and a young, eclectic crop of music makers, churning out everything from bluegrass to punkabilly.”

Some of Nashville’s highlights feature shopping, dining, entertainment and tourism. Treasure hunt at the vintage boutique, Venus and Mars or cool off at Las Paletas, a small shop that makes popsicles from fresh fruit and vegetables. Prided by being Nashville’s first restaurant to earn certification from the Green Restaurant Association, enjoy pleasant seasonal American dishes at Tayst.

To top off your trip to Nashville, check out the new beats of the city by walking over to East Nashville where the trendy neighborhood with newer venues is alive and thriving. Then, wind down in the dark wood and dim chandeliers of the Patterson House.

From music to pre-civil war, the history in Nashville is overwhelming. The Country Music Hall of Fame can be found in the historic Music Row District, familiar territory to legends Elvis and Dolly Parton. Relive the 18th century pre-civil war days at Belle Meade Plantation where visitors can view a posh carriage house, slave quarters and the silver-capped hooves of Iroquois.
