The Space

.This listing is for the whole loft, so you will have it to yourself. Newly renovated Long Island City artist loft. Located on the second floor of a charming 1920s factory building. Nice mixture of modern and antique design. Nice large windows, always a wonderful breeze. Clean tidy bathroom with lots of fresh towels . A very comfortable seating area, and a comfy bed with fresh linens and blankets. There's also a great sit down kitchen area.

Long Island City is fast becoming one of NYC's most sought after neighborhoods to live and play. With its close proximity to Manhattan, it's only one train stop to Midtown and less than 10 minutes to Time Sq-42nd Street. The E, M, 7 and G trains are just around the corner. You can get anywhere in the city, including Green Point, Williamsburg, or all other points of Brooklyn with ease. There is a wonderful cafe right next door which has gourmet coffees, fresh pastries, handmade pizza, sandwiches, and many other great items. Long Island City is known for lots of other premier restaurants and beautiful riverfront parks with some of the most breathtaking views you'll see in NYC. Also lots of art galleries and studios are located here, including MOMA PS1 which hosts Summer Warm Up parties featuring great crowds and world class DJs and performers. All of this just a few blocks away from the loft. This is a very safe and relaxing area during the evening. You will also have access to a huge private rooftop (no other neighbors in the building) with a BBQ and more stunning views. It's great way to wind down and relax after fun-filled days exploring the city

  • Went to NY for 3 nights. Let me tell you that my stay has never been better. Beside the host being a great guy the place was clean ready for us. My first place with Airbnb and my experience was amazing. Thanks Demetrius.

  • Really enjoyed our stay at the loft. Demetrius was friendly, accessible, and graciously accommodating. The loft is very comfortably furnished and was spotless when we arrived. Lots of great little restaurants nearby, and easy access to Manhattan, and Brooklyn. Industrial neighbourhood, but we always felt safe, and the locals were always friendly. A great NY experience.

  • My friend and I had a great time staying at Demetrius's loft apartment. He met us on time and gave us a quick tour of the apartment and rooftop. The rooftop is pretty amazing for drinks/smokes and we even slept outside on our last night. The bed was comfortable and the kitchen is a cute set up for a cup of coffee and snacks. Demetrius even loaned us his speaker so we could play our music off our phones. It was the perfect size for us, since we were out most of the time exploring the city. The quiet neighborhood is a fantastic location for getting to the city. One or two stops on the train and you are in Manhattan and the subway is only a block away from the apartment. The East River is within walking distance, too. I have friends that live only two blocks away from Demetrius and they will be recommending this place to their friends that visit because they also thought the place was great.

  • The studio is exactly as shown and described and we will definitely stay there again when we visit NYC. We stayed for eight days and it was a great little home base. We were surprised at how quick and easy (and inexpensive!) it was to take the subway to wherever we wanted to go.

    Demetrius greeted us when we arrived, gave us a great tour and made us feel comfortable and right at home. The place is well laid out and stocked. The air conditioner and fan were much appreciated and worked great; it was fairly warm and humid weather during our stay. He even included some nice extras like english muffins, butter and creamer. The kitchenette includes a single-burner hot plate and a small cube fridge. He also made clear that we could phone him any time if we needed anything. We did end up reaching out a couple times - once for an iron and ironing board - and he was very quick to respond. He also allowed some flexibility on check out as we had to run a couple errands before catching a mid-afternoon flight out. Demetrius is a knowledgable, generous, and attentive host.

    The wireless Internet won't work for streaming movies, but is sufficient for email and browsing the web. We had decent coverage for our mobile devices using T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon wireless.

    We loved the decor and even came away wanting to take some cues from Demetrius to NYC-ify our place in Portland, OR a bit!

    There's a general grocery store nearby and a fantastic natural foods store a few blocks further, right across from a great little coffee shop. There are a lot of great restaurants, pubs and other places to choose from nearby, as well.

    The rooftop is a bonus, We ended almost every evening up there with a nightcap and enjoyed the views of the lighted bridge and surroundings.

  • We had two good nights at Demetrius' place. It's clean, cosy, comfortable and very easy and quick to get to the city. The industry in the area was a little bit noisy in the morning, but we wanted to see the city instead of sleep all the time, so it was ok for us. Demetrius is very nice and was there to answer our questions. We hope to come back soon.

    June 2014
  • The loft was clean and beyond charming. It was the best place I've ever stayed in NYC, and Demetrius was friendly, accommodating, and welcomed me with some basic groceries which were a godsend after a long flight. I plan to stay here again!

    June 2014
  • Demetrius is a great host! The apartment is well kept and equipped with everything you need for your stay.

    The location is extremely convenient yet pretty quiet. There's a cafe right downstairs and supermarket near by. I would highly recommend this place for your NYC stay ^^

  • Demetrius' apartment was perfect for our trip to New York. There are plenty of restaurants and bars within walking distance and the subway was just around the corner. The space itself was clean and the free WiFi (provided by the host) made it so easy to plan our day.
    Demetrius was a great host, unobtrusive, but on hand if we needed him. On our last day, even though check-out was 11 am, he provided space for our luggage so we could take a stroll around and grab a bite to eat.
    Thank you, Demetrius.

  • Demetrius is a kind host. The loft was clean and looked just like in the pictures. Because it is in an industrial area, you will hear the sound of industry during the day. I was able to sleep just fine nevertheless. At night, you have to be careful if returning home on foot because the blocks around the loft are a bit isolated and not perfectly lit throughout. I'm still giving it five stars.

  • We loved staying in Long Island City! The location was perfect and accessible to a number of trains enabling us to explore so many different neighborhoods, including LIC itself. We were charmed by the plethora of restaurants and bars that were walkable from this apartment, as well as its proximity to PS1. Demetrius was easy to contact and provided a clean and comfortable apartment for our quick trip to the city. Highly recommended!
