Queens apartment description
Since 1997 I've rented 2 comfortable 4x5m rooms in my 1870s loft-style apartment. Furnished in classic American Mission style with sturdy wood and soft leather the ambiance is comfortable, relaxed and unpretentious, the guest towels thick Turkish cotton, the beds top of the line with all cotton, high count linens. There is central heat, air conditioning and always plenty of hot water; free WiFi and 24-hour access. The comfort and ease of my guests is my #1 priority.
4 subway lines converge at the station right across the street; it's just 1 stop to midtown Manhattan, 2 to Rockefeller Center, 6 minutes to Grand Central Station, 10 to Times Square, 15 to Greenwich Village or Brooklyn Bridge. The subways run 24/7 and these lines are heavily frequented and safe at any time.
Each room has a maximum for 2 people per room. I generally have a 4-night minimum though within two weeks of arrival I can rent out for 2-3 nights.
Je parle francais & estoy estudiando espanol.
I'm in the Long Island City neighborhood, a center of NYC's film, television, new media & arts directly across the East River from midtown Manhattan. PS1/MOMA Contemporary Art Center is right across the street & 5 Pointz around the corner, and we have the Noguchi Museum, Socrates Sculpture Garden, and numerous art galleries & studios.
'This is another of those cool New York pockets easily overlooked...the views of the Manhattan skyline are to die for, and the elevated subway, graffiti and bustling diners imbue it with that old-school New York feel missing elsewhere.'
---the Lonely Planet Guide to NYC
Your host, a recognized expert in NYC history and culture can be an invaluable source of information on nightlife, discount shopping, architecture & history guided or unguided walks, perfect itineraries, great bus expeditions through various neighborhoods, terrific inexpensive ethnic restaurants, reduced theater tickets and more.
For 15 years the Court Square Guest House has been a home away from home for independent travelers interested in venturing beyond the standard tourist itinerary, engaged people with strong interests and passions, who, like me, have kicked around a bit and have their own stories to tell.. I do live in the apartment with my dog, Max, (pictured).

Eu conheço Allan desde 2008 e fiquei hospedado na casa dele por três vezes, inclusive por um período de três meses e meio em 2011. Em todas as ocasiões, eu tive nele um apoio fundamental, um amigo que estava sempre disposto a dar todas as orientações sobre Nova York e as melhores dicas de o que fazer na cidade. Não era apenas uma relação entre um vendedor e seu cliente, cuja cortesia é condição essencial. Não! Era e ainda é muito mais que isso. É uma relação de amizade que foi construída e consolidada ao longo de todas as minhas viagens para esta cidade que adoro. Sim, é óbvio eu recomendo Court Square Guesthouse! I've known Allan since 2008 and I stayed at his house three times, including a period of three and a half months in 2011. Everytime, I had in him a crucial support, a friend who was always willing to give me attention and help to enjoy New York very much, including the best tips on what to do in the city. It was much more then a relationship between a seller and his client, whose courtesy is essential. No! It was and still is much more than that. It is a friendship that was built and consolidated during all my trips to this city that I love. Yes, of course I recommend Court Square Guesthouse!
