Property description

Lonely Planet has just rated Queens #1 in the 'Top 10 Places in the US'-so stay at intersection of hip & new!
***********************
Children over 10 are welcome
This spacious 2 bed room Artist Lofts is located in Long Island City, Queens, just ten minutes by subway to Times Square ,the rest of Manhattan; and hipster Brooklyn, Williamsburg and Greenpoint.
PLEASE NOTE: The Loft is PROFESSIONALLY CLEANED for 5 hours including all closets, cabinets, refrigerator, under the beds, etc. We do not consider "slapping a set of old sheets on beds” to be a “cleaning”, and the Loft is completely devoid of any our personal “stuff”. We take this 100% seriously. Hence our cleaning fee. If arriving to a very CLEAN place is important to you, then please consider our Loft.

Architecturally designed and newly renovated, the decor includes original wide plank wood flooring, exposed brick walls and a contemporary kitchen; and is flooded with light from three exposures, views of Manhattan and one skylight. It is attractively furnished with an eclectic mix of original artwork, modern furniture and North African carpets and textiles. The master bedroom has a queen size bed and a view to the east and the second bedroom has a full size bed with a view to the south: the white tiled bathroom has a shower and tub. Amenities include WiFi, air conditioning, internet-ready flat screen TV,microwave, coffee-maker, ceiling fan, all linens and a full kitchen. The loft is located two flights up from the street. Smoking is not permitted.

Long Island City is one of New York's newest artistic neighborhoods with TWO Michelin starred restaurants: Case Enrique and M. Wells Steakhouse, AND TWO Michelin “Bib Gourmand” picks. 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. For art lovers, PS 1/MoMa Contemporary Art Center, the Noguchi Museum, and Sculpture Center are all near.

For more fun, take the East River Ferry to three different parts of Brooklyn and Wall Street from nearby Gantry State Park with its stunning running track along the river. There are also excellent yoga, fitness, and cycle studios, and a CitiBike station minutes from the loft.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

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 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.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
