Astoria House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, backyard, 1 block from subway best location

Do you want all the joys of New York City but the relaxation of returning to a cozy house in a unique and diverse area? This property is located near the N and Q subway line on a quiet street only a 10-minute ride from Manhattan. In addition, as one of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in the world, Astoria--especially famous for its Greek and Italian food--features restaurants where you can eat very well without the high price tag. The subway, which is one block from the house, is a direct line to NYU and convenient to all tourist attractions as well as attractions off the beaten path. If you have children, you will want to visit the renown New York Hall of Science in Flushing (also accessible by subway), which is right next to the Queens Zoo. We are in walking distance from the Noguchi Museum and the Museum of the Moving Image. The Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan is a ten-minute ride, and Greenwich Village is eighteen minutes away.

The refinished basement with a double futon and its own bathroom and access to the garden could be used for an office or a bedroom. The master bedroom upstairs sleeps two and is near the children's bedroom with a bunk bed that accommodates two.

About martha witt

We have owned and this house for nine years and have enjoyed all that Astoria has to offer. I am a writer and a professor, and my husband is a journalist working in Manhattan, so the proximity to the city has been a real bonus, but we also enjoy coming home to the more relaxed atmosphere of Astoria. We have been particularly happy with the fact that our kids have gotten to experience such a diverse and lively neighborhood and that we have become familiar with people, cultures, and cuisines from all over the world.
