This stylish 2 bedroom Artist Loft is located in Long Island City, Queens: the intersection of hip and new!

This luxurious, spacious Loft has its own idiosyncratic personality that includes a colorful selection of rotating artwork by local New York and Brooklyn artists. Architecturally designed and recently renovated, the decor includes red oak wood flooring, exposed brick walls and a contemporary kitchen with an island and bar stools. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and the second bedroom has a full size bed with a view to the south: the custom tiled bathroom has double vanity, a shower and tub, and a washer/ dryer. Amenities include free WiFi, air conditioning, flat screen TV, microwave, washing machine, ceiling fan, all linens and a full kitchen with dishwasher. The loft is located one flight up from the street. Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the building or on the fire escape.

Long Island City is one of New York's newest up and coming neighborhoods; it has hipster cafes, ethnic restaurants and art galleries right next to old world Italian restaurants. This is the place for gourmet eating with many young chefs setting up shop here! One particularly great local restaurant is Tournesol, a neighborhood fixture, owned and operated by a family from south west France. Also of note is NY's ONLY Michelin starred Mexican restaurant: Case Enrique! For art lovers, PS 1/MoMa Contemporary Art Center, the Noguchi Museum, and Sculpture Center are all near.

In 5 minutes walk to the park on the East River for movie-star Manhattan skyline views! For more fun on the water, take the East River Ferry to Brooklyn and Wall Street. There is also a stunning running track along the river.

In the neighborhood there are also excellent yoga, fitness, and cycle studios, and a CitiBike station (rent a bike) minutes from the loft.

From the Loft you can also walk to nearby hipster Brooklyn (Greenpoint and Williamsburg)

About David

We are two artists, one American painter and one British sculptor, who are avid world travelers ourselves (India, Italy and South East Asia are our favorite destinations!) and enjoy sharing our passionate love of New York with visitors. 'See the Real New York' is our motto! As a result, we offer real 'insider' tips to the best art galleries, museum shows and other events currently on view. As real 'foodies' and 'locavores' we can direct you to the best eats for the best price, from Farmer's Markets to 5 star restaurants, especially in our great Long Island City neighborhood. We personally renovated this apartment with love and sweat and an eye for design, elegance and charm.

Why David chose Hunters Point

This is the CLEANEST place you will reserve!! We absolutely love Queens, Long Island City where this loft is located. You are in Manhattan in five minutes by subway or you can stay in the neighborhood, enjoy the countless hipster restaurants, art galleries, walk along the East River Park and see the glorious Manhattan skyline, or take the bus five minutes to ultra chill Greenpoint or Williamsburg Brooklyn for even more art galleries, restaurants, etc. The building is on a lovely, tree-lined quiet block. The subway is a one minute walk from the apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

Lonely Planet has rated Queens #1 in the 'Top 10 Places in the US'-so stay where its all happening!

The location is superb for all of Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. All can be accessed by subway or bus, both at the end of the street.

The Very Best of NYC

  • 5 of 5

This lovely apartment is my favorite place to stay when visiting New York. This was a return visit for us, and it certainly will not be our last. The apartment is large, well appointed, and beautifully decorated ( the owners' remarkable work is hung throughout the space and enhances the experience). David and Margaret are wonderful hosts- making the process simple and sharing their knowledge of the neighborhood and the city. But the best thing about this lovely gem of an apartment is the location. We have fallen in love with the neighborhood. There are a number of outstanding culinary adventures with easy walking distance, as well as an excellent deli and grocery store. Access to Manhattan is quick and easy. The 7 train is at the end if the block, and you can be in midtown Manhattan in 15 minutes. Simply the best VRBO experience we have ever had!

Tutto perfetto!

  • 5 of 5

Loft grande, accogliente, nuovo e pulito in modo ineccepibile, posizionato a 30 secondi di cammino dalla metropolitana (linea 7). David é stato un host molto attento e preciso. Non ci siamo incontrati ma siamo sempre rimasti in contatto durante il nostro soggiorno di 6 giorni. Consigliatissimo, ottimo value for money!

Absolutely perfect and so Close

  • 5 of 5

This is one of those reviews I am somewhat reluctant to make as it may make it so popular I can never rent it again. The place is fantastic. Spotless and move in ready as promised. Professionally decorated with no owner trinkets and trash cluttering the beautiful space. The area of Long Island City is perfect. We loved the restaurants and neighborhood bar scene even more than Manhattan. Our kids both live in Manhattan and even they loved coming to LIC for dinners and neighborhood activities. A short walk to the east river with great views and the great ferry system. We were close to everything staying in LIC. The metro cuts across midtown giving you one change access to all of Manhattan and the Ferry is great fun and great connections to wall street and even the Brooklyn stops which we loved.

We will definitely be coming back for another month long stay very soon. Thank you David and Margaret for being so kind and professional.

Great Apt.

  • 4 of 5

The apt. is very comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. The location is great.

The directions for arrival very accurate.

David was very nice. We had problems with our flight because of the weather in NY and he was very helpfull and attentive. He gave us an upgrade also.

I recommend the apt. to any of my friends without doubt.

The neighborhood is safe and quiet and you are just 5 minutes from Grand Central Station, so you are very well communicated with any part of Manhattan.

I will return soon for sure.

Thank you David!

Pleasant little LIC neighborhood gem that's so convenient to Manhattan!!!

  • 5 of 5

This 2br unit was a great home base for our visit this weekend. The convenience to the 7 line, just 200ft from our front door, was unexpectedly helpful! We were in and out of Grand Central Station in Manhattan in minutes..

We enjoyed the light and airy living space. The bedroom and bath were also quite comfortable. We like the character and decor, with the pops of color against the old Brick textures.

The neighborhood and restaurants were convenient and pleasantly walkable. We enjoyed breakfast at Cafe Henri, excellent food and the best eggs Benedict I have had in quite some time!

The owners are very communicative and efficient. We would definitely consider staying again on subsequent visits. Thank you for keeping such a spotless little gem so close to everything!

Luxurious Loft in a Great Neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying in Long Island City!!! 1. it is SUPER close to Manhattan-only 5 minutes by subway 2. neighborly, safe area with a great waterfront park on the East River complete with cafe for breakfast and happy hour wine/beer menu. Best way o view the Manhattan skyline. 3. clean, large loft apartment perfect for 4 adults. The Loft was for myself, girlfriend and other 2 friends. Private, separate bedrooms, plenty of open, sunny space to chill out in, big modern bathroom. Looks just like the listing. Owners available and helpful, very nice! Tons of local restaurant menus, city maps, and guides in the Loft-no need to cart your own heavy guidebook.
