"We had a great time staying at the house for a week. The views were amazing. We had 7 people staying there and there was plenty of room for everyone. And the walk to the train station was very short which made going to the city easy. We enjoyed visiting the Deli at the end of the street. Mike was nice enough to take us for a boat ride and even though we got stuck for a few minutes it was an adventure and we enjoyed the ride. We were able to do a little fishing and even caught some crabs. We were there for my son's graduation from USMMA and the ride to the school was not bad at all. I would recommend this house to everyone it is wonderful. If the opportunity arises we will definitely be back. The only drawback was that the week went by to quickly."

"I would definitely recommend the Amy's apartments! I stayed there for more than one month and everything was just as I imagined (and dreamed). The apartment is exactly as shown in pictures and the whole house is very beautiful. Amy was always very kind with me and helped me in everything I needed.
The city of Bayside is very safe and the LIRR Train Station is only 10 minutes walking from the apartment (US$ 9.00 oneway) - the train takes 30 minutes to Manhattan.
I will definitely come back on my next trip to NY!"

"Every time we have visited New York City in the past decade it has gone without question that we stay in Manhattan: we have rented apartments from the East Village to midtown. They all had one benefit – a handy location – and each also had its own selection of drawbacks: dirty, crammed with the owner’s unloved and unlovable belongings, uncomfortable and/or too tiny to swing a cockroach, let alone a cat.
For our May-June 2015 trip, our search for a Manhattan apartment was complicated by needing beds for five people rather than our usual two. Everything remotely possible that turned up in searches was also horribly cramped and ridiculously expensive. We reluctantly expanded the search to Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx – and stumbled across these apartments in Long Island City.
They turned out to be the best New York place we have ever stayed in, in terms of both the location and the apartments themselves.
They are not in Manhattan, but they are so close it makes no difference. You get amazingly wonderful views of that famous skyline from the banks of the East River, just a five-minute stroll if you take a left at the front door. A mere minute or so in the other direction takes you to a subway station from which the reliable 7 train will carry you to Grand Central Station in three or four minutes.
The neighbourhood is relaxed and feels very safe. Most of the people you see around are young couples with a kid or three in tow. They aren’t tourists; they live here. And much as you might love the great pulse of humanity that is so much a part of NYC, it’s kind of nice to pop up from the subway at the end of a hectic day to a place where there’s room on the streets. Despite the relative quiet, the area has a go-ahead hum and in three weeks we by no means exhausted the offerings of the bars, cafes and restaurants in the vicinity.
The apartments (we had two, White and Orange) are thoughtfully and comfortably set up. Without being vast, they feel airy and open. The practicalities are well taken care of and the owners have brought an artistic sensibility to everything that means they are also just very pleasant places to be. Even the stairwell is a mini art gallery. They are really good value.
And Manhattan? Well, it’s still a great place to visit … or just say the word at the charming new Station Bar on Jackson Avenue and they’ll mix you a pretty neat one."

"200 m from the train station 69 St, 20 minutes to Manhattan, very clean, quiet and can sleep 4 people ,. If you are arriving at night ask to keep light on on the outside door. And do not forget to leave it on if you plan to come back late night,"
