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

Ein guter Ort für Ferien in NY! In einer Dreiviertelstunde waren wir von JFK mit dem Airtrain (mit einmaligem Umsteigen auf die Subway, Linie E) bei der Wohnung. Die sehr saubere 1- Zimmerwohnung (ca 4x10m) mit Wohnküche und eigener Dusche / WC liegt im 1. Sock eines 2- stöckigen Hauses mit einer riesigen Dachterrasse, die man benutzen kann (was wir ausgiebig taten). Für 2 Personen war der Raum gross, bei 4 Personen (1 Doppelbett und ein Bettsofa) könnte es etwas eng werden mit allen Koffern. Der Gewerbebetrieb im Parterre hat eine tagsüber surrende Maschine, die uns aber nicht gestört hat. Abends ab 5 und nachts ist es sehr ruhig, kaum Verkehr auf der Quartierstrasse. Die U- Bahn ist kein 5 Minuten vom Haus weg, mit ihr ist man nach einer Station in Manhatten. Ein grosser Lebensmittelladen (offen auch abends und Sa / So) steht gleich bei der U- Bahnstation, die Post ca 300m südlich davon in der gleichen Strasse. Das kleine Kaffee neben der Wohnung haben wir nicht ausprobiert, es soll prima sein. Die Gegend ist sicher, auch spätabends. Demetrius wohnt im gleichen Stock gleich über den Flur, wo er auch oft arbeitet (Komposition, wir haben ihn nicht musizieren gehört, schade!). Er hat schon im Voraus immer prompt und gut verständlich reagiert auf unsere Fragen, so auch während unseres Aufenthaltes. Er hat uns persönlich empfangen und verabschiedet. Der Kühlschrank und eine Früchteschale war zu Beginn gefüllt, wir waren sehr froh darum. Hand- und Frottétücher, Küchen- und Bettwäsche gibts übergenug, Demetrius gibt bei Bedarf gerne noch mehr. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt, Chapeau und vielen Dank an Demetrius!
Demetrius's space was accurately depicted, bright, well decorated & very clean. The place had all the basics to make you feel at home & to make traveling more convenient. It was easy to meet up for key exchange & Demetrius was always easy to communicate with. Overall very positive experience!
Great experience, awesome place and Demetrius is very warm and kind with the guests. He offers everything you need to have a great stay at his place.
This was great place to stay, plenty of room, easy subway access to anywhere... Would easily stay here again!
We had a great stay in Demetrius's loft. It's a perfect location to get to many parts of Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn with the metro very near by. The loft is exactly as shown and except for the hanger factory starting up at around 8 am on weekdays, it is quiet. It was very clean, comfortable and uniquely decorated. We felt safe here, even late at night. Demetrius was easy to communicate with and a considerate host. He left us breakfast food like fruit, English muffins,yogurt, and coffee and tea. He also has restaurant menus and some NY guides. There were lots of towels and toiletries to use. I highly recommend staying here, especially for two people.
The apartment was as described. Clean, comfortable, and quiet over the weekend. Demetrius was very hospitable and professional. The apartment is decently located, relatively close to the subway and restaurants.
This place was great! Demetrius was wonderful - accommodated us having to leave early because of a family emergency. Provided us with fresh fruit, some basics in the mini-fridge, and all the toiletries imaginable. The set up is quirky and fun; very private, good internet connection, and lots of TV channels if staying inside is something you'd even think of in LIC. Super close (a short block and half) from the EM, perfect for going into the city (one stop) or further out in Queens (Forest Hills/Jackson Heights one or two express stops). Our only "complaint" was that the industrial nature of the loft lent to pretty loud business startup noises around 7:30a on the weekdays and the dull, sometimes a bit louder, hum of saws or drills was constant until 5:00ish each night. I don't think you'd have this problem on the weekends, though; and we are early birds anyway, so it was fine.
I'm a music producer/musician. I'm easy going and enjoy meeting new people from all over the world because I love to travel as well. I'm sure you will enjoy the space, the area and everything it has to offer. I've enjoyed this neighborhood for many years. Cant wait for my guests to enjoy it as much as I have.
