Queens apartment description

* please send us an e-mail that includes your profile and a photo before you book our place. We will respond to that e-mail and tell you if our place is available for the dates that you want. Thanks...

*You will have your own private apartment consisting of a room + private bathroom/shower + your own private entrance and a private foyer area. You are on your own separate level (the ground/1st floor) of the house. You can come and go any time you wish.

* The 46th st. station for the subway trains (R and M lines) is less than a block away from our house (an easy 3 or 4 minute walk to the subway station) so it is very easy access to the NYC subway system. From the 46th st. station, it is approximately a 15 minute subway ride (4 stops) to the first stop in Manhattan (the Lexington station).

*We think that Astoria is a hidden gem in the New York metropolitan area.

*We enjoy hosting. We have traveled extensively ourselves and we have fun meeting our guests and helping them in their travels. We also enjoy sharing our home, our neighborhood and our city with you.

*Quiet....serene and very SAFE neighborhood. Garden in front yard and back yard. Wonderful, interesting neighborhood....... Front and back porches.

Astoria is very close to midtown Manhattan and so it is an ideal location in which to enjoy NYC. This is especially true for our house because we are so close to a major subway stop and subway line.

It is relatively easy to park your car in our neighborhood.

Neighborhood description:
*Astoria is known as a 'Greek' community (people from Greece live here). Our area of Astoria is a vibrant mix of greeks, italians, 'hipsters', midsters, oldsters, brazilians, yuppies, japanese, chinese, and just about everyone else in the world is represented. It is fun and interesting to be mixed into the multi-cultural atmosphere. Astoria is a small town atmosphere that is very close to Manhattan. Astoria is overflowing and loaded with restaurants, bars, clubs, shops. Just about anything that you would want to buy you can find it here. This neighborhood is considered to be one of the most 'up and coming' and popular neighborhoods in NYC.. Some people describe Astoria as the east part of Midtown or the east side of the east side of Manhattan. Astoria is a much sought after neighborhood and it is difficult to find an apartment here now. It is easy and fun to walk around Astoria and soak in the many different subcultures of people groups within Astoria. You will find authentic and inexpensive restaurants from literally all over the world. There are coffee shops, pubs, bars, clubs and parks galore.

*We have the peace of country-like living but very close to Manhattan.

*Our backyard has a porch and barbeque area and a large garden. We have a front porch and a garden in front also. The sun hits the back porch in the a.m. and front porch in the p.m. It's a good home for having a great life in the city with room to live indoors and outdoors.

Our house was built during the art/deco period of American design. We try to use furniture that matches this wonderful time period of American art and design.

The beds are ikea beds. We have only heard positive comments about the mattress quality

*2 New Ikea beds with a queen size mattress (for two people each). Plus there is 1 new Ikea twin sized bed (for one person). So there are 3 total beds but could add in another twin sized bed if you want it.

*We have a small refrigerator, a sink, a microwave and an electric kettle in your room.

*Please be sure to submit your profile and picture when you communicate with us.
