About this listing
Spacious bedroom with queen size memory foam bed fit for 2 in our charming "old NY" apartment with fantastic views. Super convenient location to 4 trains (all 1 block-2 blocks away). One stop away from Manhattan and right next to trendy Brooklyn!
For those who appreciate real New York old world charm, this apt is located in a very convenient area of Long Island City only 1 stop away from Manhattan. Located on a corner across a park with tons of sunlight drenching the apartment, we have 4 subways all within a short 2 block radius from us. The 7 train right on our block, E and M which is only 1 stop away from Manhattan, G if you want to travel to Greenpoint or Williamsburg or other parts of Brooklyn. Supermarket, diner, deli, restaurants all nearby and the beautiful LIC waterfront only a short walking distance away. Our neighbor MoMA PS1 is across the way from us, you can see and hear all the great events they throw during the summers. Also has a new amazing cafeteria style restaurant inside called Dinette, great for nice lunches.
We are a couple subletting one of our 3 rooms. Our apartment is warm, comfortable and spacious with a lot of character. Best of all, has big windows to an amazing view of the city skyline without having to stay in a boring "cookie cutter" new built apartment or a chain hotel. The living room is large with exposed brick, old mismatched furniture, tons of books and a small pet snake in a safe tank.
Kitchen is also great and spacious, really nice to cook in and with a new dishwasher.
Bathroom is shared, it's very basic but has a big old claw foot tub with shower.
This apartment has a few creaks and cracks but overall its clean, big and comfortable.
The room is just simple and clean, big enough for 2. Has a queen sized memory foam mattress, an old dresser and a clothing rack for your use. There's a built in wardrobe with our clothes on the side. Room has it's own A/C in the summer. We will provide fresh sheets and towels.
We also have roof access which is right above us. It has an amazing 360 view of NY.
We do want to advise that this is a 5 floor walk up but very worth it, and we enforce a no shoe policy please.
This neighborhood is a great mix of young adults, singles, families, it has a good blend of all. Its embodies true NY without it being an obnoxious scene. You can be tucked away from the fast city but its super close. The area is very convenient to get to wherever you want. Theres also really great restaurants really nearby and a beautiful waterfront blocks away.
We have 4 subways all within a short 2 block radius from us. The 7 train right on our block, E and M which is only 1 stop away from Manhattan, G if you want to travel to Greenpoint or Williamsburg or other parts of Brooklyn.
Only a 50 min commute to/from JFK on 1 train. E train to court square stop
if you need to smoke inside, pls go to our pleasant sunny smoking nook (red loveseat surrounded by large windows) and smoke OUT of the window.
Otherwise we do have a nice roof with great views
always lock door behind you
although many of our basic kitchen items are available for you, it is advised for guests who stay longer periods and plan to cook often, to buy their own kitchen food basics. other than that, our kitchen which is very nice to use, is your kitchen :)
pls do not put teflon cookware or disposable plastics in dishwasher as well as rinsing off food particles from dishes before placing in dishwasher
we prefer no shoes in house
This was our first airbnb experience and it was really great! Nektarios and Vicky were wonderful hosts! We felt very welcomed and could hang out with them if we wanted to or just have privacy if we wanted that. The apartment is cozy and clean and the location is just super! You get away from all the stress and people in Manhattan, but it just 10 minutes away. Thank you a lot for our week at your place! if we ever go back we will stay with you again! :-)
アパートの周辺は静かです。MOMA PS1 のそばで、公園もあり、おしゃれな雰囲気です。ある日このアパートの前で映画の撮影をしていました。美味しいレストランも多いです。East Riverサイドまでお散歩できます。
This was an airy and spacious apartment with an amazing view of the Manhattan skyline. The neighborhood felt safe at night, and it was only a couple of stops from Manhattan by subway. I easily found street parking. The apartment was clean and comfortable, and our bedroom, though small, was comfortable and private. Nektarios and Vicky let us have the run of the main space, including letting us use the desk and the kitchen. They were very thoughtful and accommodating. We would highly recommend staying here.
Great apartment and location! My commute to work in Midtown literally took 10 minutes door to door, and the subway was conveniently just one block away. The room was very tidy and although small, was very comfortable with A/C, storage space, and even Netflix/TV. The common area is very large with a beautiful view of the Manhattan skyline. Vicky and Nektarios are funny and charming hosts, and we enjoyed chatting with them when they were around. They made the key pick-up and drop-off very easy, and was great about communicating to help us arrive.
We highly recommend this apartment and set of wonderful hosts. We stayed here for about two weeks as we were transitioning in between apartments, and found the stay truly pleasant. Thank you!
Vicky & Nektarios have the perfect combo of attentive and chilled. I came and went, worked in the apartment sometimes and nothing ever felt out of place. The view is great, the area is chilled and has some great spots for food and drink. One stop from Manhattan by train which is on the same block. Would recommend to anyone and hope to stay again when I'm in the city. Thanks both.
Vicky and Nektarios are the perfect guests. They respect your privacy, but they are present if you need help. Their apartment has indeed a wonderful view of Manhattan, especially at night, and is very close to the subway (in a few minutes, you are at Times Square). Moreover, it is very comfortable, spacious and bright. Our stay was delicious !
We also recommend a very nice restaurant near their appartment : the LIC Market. The meat is perfectly cooked, the wine, the cheese, the pasta, the burgers are good, and the waiters are very polite and welcoming. One of the waitress even talks French !
Amazing apartment and incredible location making it very easy to get anywhere in the city very quickly. Great view, and cool apartment all around. Didn't spend a ton of time there because we were out and about but Vicky and Nektarious were great hosts and had everything setup for us real well! Thanks guys.
