Owner info

About the owner: 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 the Owner Chose Long Island City, Queens, NY, USA:
This will be the CLEANEST place to reserve. We absolutely love Queens, Long Island City where this loft is located. You are in Manhattan in 5 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 5 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.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Lonely Planet has just rated Queens #1 in the 'Top 10 Places in the US'-so stay where its all happening! The location is superb for Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. All can be accessed by subway ( 1 minute walk from the apt.) or, bus or the very fun East River Ferry service.
