The Space

Greetings travelers!

My apartment is a charming one bedroom, one bathroom apartment in a well-kept 1926 brick building located on a beautiful tree-lined street in the heart of Astoria (more on Astoria in a moment). It is located at the corner of 33rd Street and 31st Avenue, two blocks from the subway (N/Q train), which whisks you into Manhattan in about 10 minutes (first stop, Lexington Ave/59th St., with easy access to Central Park, Midtown, the Theatre District, etc.). LaGuardia Airport is about a 12-15 minute taxi ride; JFK Airport is about 25 minutes (with no traffic).

You will find your stay here a pleasant one, defined by comfort, convenience and affordability. Having lived in this apartment for the last 10 years, I take great pride in its comfort, cleanliness and overall decor. You will note from the photos (and, if you decide to book a stay here, in person) the warm and rustic look.

  • Hi! Me and my daughter had a great time at Michael's apt. It is cozy, warm, its kitchen is fully equipped so you can cook any meal and it is really well located. I loved staying there instead of Manhattan, because I had the chance to know a nice neighborhood, full of restaurants, shops and life. What you need to know is that despite being a short subway ride to get to Manhattan it will add 25 mins to get to central park or 40 mins to get to downtown. And that is if the trains are functioning OK. For me it wasn't a problem, but if you don't have much time it might be worth considering. Another little problem is that the apt is in the front so you will hear street noise. It is not really bad, and I think if you are a heavy sleeper you won't even notice. After spending quite a few days here I can fully recommend Michael and his apt. Good travels!

  • We had a great stay In this very pleasant apartment. It was completely comfortable, and everything we needed had been thoughtfully provided. Michael was great at communicating in advance and checking in after we arrived. We had not used airbnb before, but we're sold after this experience.

  • My first airbnb experience was with Michael in February 2014 when my Dad and I visited NYC to see my brother in a show. Michael's quick and welcoming correspondence was much appreciated, his home was lovely, his directions and advice helpful, and his bedroom bright and cheery. He kindly left some breakfast snacks to get our morning started right. His location is great allowing us to "eat our way up Broadway" sampling many types of food. When we next visit Astoria we'll check to see if you're available. Thanks, Michael!

  • I booked this apartment for my mom while she was in town for 5 days. It is exactly as pictured and as described. The apartment was very clean and welcoming, and Michael even texted a couple times during the reservation to make sure everything was going well. All of my communication with Michael was pleasant and he always responded quickly. The street the apartment is located on is pretty busy and can be a little noisy but we didn't have problems sleeping at night. It's close to the subway and restaurants and is well worth the money spent, you get so much more than what a NYC hotel room offers for a fraction of the price. I will definitely recommend this to other guests I have visiting!

    October 2013
  • I had a great time and Mike's place worked out well for me. It was an easy walk to the subway and I slept really well. I would definitely do it again.

About
Hello Travelers! Thank you for considering a stay at my lovely apartment! My name is Mike. I am native New Yorker and have lived in this apartment for 10 years. It has been a wonderful home to me and I hope you will find your stay here to be a comfortable and enjoyable one. I am a working professional, with a full time career in urban planning. When I am not planning for better, more livable communities, I can be found surfing Atlantic Ocean at the beautiful Long Island beaches. As often as possible, I travel, both for work as well as leisure. Experiencing new places, cultures, architecture, food and people is not only educational -- it's critical to living a full life. I hope you, as a traveler -- either international, national, or a local looking to spend time in New York City -- will take advantage of all my city has to offer during your time here. I look forward to the opportunity to offer my home to you so that you may experience NYC to its fullest!
