ASTORIA is a lively safe neighborhood filled with people from all over the world and known for great food, particularly Greek. There are numerous cafes, restaurants, grocery stores, and fruit stands a block away. We're two blocks from the Broadway Ave subway stop and very close to LaGuardia Airport (but not on a flight path). 40 Minutes from JFK - Late arrivals are not a problem.
SUBWAY (N and Q): Just around the corner. 10 minutes to Manhattan (Lexington and 59th Street), 15 minutes to Times Square. The subway runs all night (every 5 minutes) and is safe to ride all the time. In few minutes you can be in Times Square or in Madison/Fifth Avenue window shopping, ice skating at Rockefeller Center, seeing a Broadway show or just wandering the streets of Manhattan.
I can even get you great tickets (usually but not always) for off broadway, jazz clubs, and comedy clubs ... and sometimes even broadway.. for the crazy price of $10 per ticket!!!! :)

Exelente apartamento para quedarte en tus vacaciones en NYC. Localizado solo a 4 paradas en tren de Midtown, Manhattan. El barrio es excellente, bohemio y famoso por su caffes & restaurantes al aire libre - bastante diversidad de culturas. Lo recomiendo para mujeres viajando solas que no quieran gastar una fortuna por su estadia en NY pero si quieran estar en lugar lindo, con cultura y super seguro. Si estan interesado por favor contactame a mi e-mail or telefono.

The room was clean and well stocked with linens. My host was gracious and responds quickly to messages. This is a good place to stay!
NYers LOVE tourists
New York war für mich ein noch schöneres Erlebnis, weil Linas Eltern auch da waren. Ihre Wohnung hat beste Bedingungen für New York Besucher: Die Subway-Verbindungen zu verschiedenen Sehenswürdigkeiten sind bequem zu erreichen und allein in der Nachbarschaft ist die Atmosphäre kulturell sehr interessant (Menschen, Restaurants, Modehäuser, kulinarische Köstlichkeiten auf der Straße,...).
Ich habe ca. zwei Wochen dort sehr genossen. Danke schön! Auch für die einmaligen Beschreibungen der touristischen Tipps von Lina!
I love New York!
숙소는 라과디아 공항에서 가까워서 택시로 금방 이동할 수 있습니다. 주택가에 위치하고 있어서 조용하게 지낼 수 있었고, 안전하다는 느낌을 받았습니다. 맨하탄에서 가까워서 다니기 편한 점도 마음에 들었습니다. 방음이 잘되지 않아서 층간에 소리가 울리기는 하였지만, 지내는데 불편하지는 않았습니다. :)
Lina's house is comfortable and safe place. It is located near LGA and Manhattan. As I had worked at the East village in Manhattan during my stay, I spent just 35 minutes for commuting. And her parents are really nice. I’d like to recommend this place for your days in NYC.
Mi estadía de 1 mes en la casa de Lina Amparo fue excelente, la habitacion es tal como la describen, amplia, cómoda y muy limpia esta ubicada en un vecindario muy tranquilo y seguro, solo hay que caminar unos minutos para llegar a la estación del metro; se pueden encontrar muchos restaurantes cerca. No conocí personalmente a Lina, pero sus padres son personas muy amables y me ayudaron en todo lo que necesite durante mi estadía.
Definitivamente me volvería a hospedar en esta habitación.
I stayed at Lina's room for a month. The room looks exactly like in the photo, it is very comfortable and spacious. The apartment is really cosy, beautiful and clean, safe and super quite. I felt like at home; I had full independency, sometimes I felt like I was alone in the apartment because Lina's Mother and Her Husband are incredibly discrete persons, soooo kind and helpful when you need. The building and area are safe, you can find nice restaurants and supermarkets around and you walk about 6mins to subway station. 10min to Manhattan - really cool conditions! I definitely recommend and I will come back!
The stay at Lina's place was great. Lina's parents are very welcoming people. The room is large and comfortable. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe, but all services can be found nearby. The route to Manhattan is easy as you don't have to switch trains.
Thanks Lina, Amparo & Álvaro. All the best
Io e mia figlia di 13 anni siamo state benissimo da Amparo e suo marito: la loro discrezione e' a dir poco eccezionale! Quando abbiamo avuto bisogno di aiuto o di consigli si sono resi subito disponibili. Abbiamo comunicato piu' in Spagnolo che in Inglese con loro.
Lina ha fatto da tramite con i suoi genitori e non l'abbiamo conosciuta di persona, pero' ci ha aiutato a trovare biglietti scontati per Fuerza Bruta che consigliamo se non siete troppo stanchi :-)
L'appartamento e' ubicato in una zona tranquilla anche di sera. Non abbiamo trovate molta varieta' di ristoranti la sera, quindi siamo rimaste spesso in centro. La stanza e' come la vedete in foto, spaziosa e luminosa. Nessun problema per condividere il bagno.
In generale, ottima esperienza come prima volta con Airbinb!
