Interaction with Guests
I spend considerable time working at home, but that is spent mostly in my room where I have my office.
The apartment is on the edge of Flushing in Queens. While much of the neighborhood is residential, downtown Flushing, centered around the northern end of Main Street, is a large commercial and retail area and is the fourth largest central business district in New York City.
Flushing's diversity is reflected by the numerous ethnic groups that reside there, including people of Asian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, European, and African American ancestry. Flushing is served by five railroad stations on the Long Island Rail Road Port Washington Branch, as well as the New York City Subway's 7 Line, which ends at Main Street. The intersection of Main Street and Roosevelt Avenue is the third busiest intersection in New York City, behind only Times and Herald Squares. (Facts courtesy of Wikipedia).
This neighborhood is almost all Chinese. There are some of the best authentic Chinese restaurants and bakeries.
The apartment is across the boulevard from Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, the fourth largest park in New York City. The apartment is within walking distance of the US Open, NY Mets stadium, and the annual Dragon Boat Races held in August.
There is a Q58 bus stop directly in front of the apartment. This bus runs frequently and is very reliable. It can take you to within 3 blocks of the 7 train station on Main Street. The 7 train runs into Manhattan every few minutes. If you like to walk and it is a nice day you can also walk to the subway station through the park; it is about a 15 minute walk. It is a 30-45 minute subway ride into Manhattan depending on the time of day and if it is a local or express train. There is also a LIRR train station nearby. If you have a car it is very easy to get on and off the nearby Long Island and Van Wyck Expressways.

I am a self-employed professional photographer currently residing in the borough of Queens of New York City. I have lived at this location for over three years and love being across of Flushing Meadows Corona Park and a 20 minute walk or 5 minute bus ride to downtown Flushing, the second largest Chinatown in the world outside of Asia. I have lived in various places within New York City and find this to be the most rewarding for its affordability, proximity to the park, and family neighborhood.
