About this listing
Come experience NYC the Astoria way! My wife and I have a 2nd floor artsy apartment with a large bed, self-inflating air mattress, and comfy couch for all your sleeping needs.
Astoria is a really wonderful place. The neighborhood is a mix of Greek, Asian, Czech, Italian, Hispanic, and Arab cultures - with restaurants to match. You also have your pick between budget grocery stores and more expensive organic markets. Several coffee shops and hip bars are within walking distance. We recommend checking out Martha's Country Bakery - they've got delicious cupcakes that people from all over New York come to eat.
It's just a short walk to the N/Q train (Astoria-Ditmars stop), and from there it's only 20 minutes 10 midtown Manhattan where you'll be able to check out Times Square, Central Park, The Empire State Building, and a bunch of other fun attractions. It's 45 minutes to the hip Brooklyn neighborhood Williamsburg, and 1 hour to the beautiful boardwalk of Coney Island.

Hello! I'm a theatre maker and teacher living in the Big Apple. I live here with my beautiful and charming wife Carrie. We run a theatre company together (Animal Engine) and often tour our shows around the country. This leaves our apartment empty and available for you!
My wife and I love art, yoga, cooking, eating out, and going on adventures! This summer we're traveling to South Dakota, Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, and Minnesota to perform our latest play - Petunia & Chicken
