Interaction with Guests
I have a very busy schedule these days so I won't be at the apartment much, except to check you in and make sure you settle in fine, and if there are any problems. In any case I'm always happy to answer questions about the neighborhood and the City, and I can very easily be reached by phone or email :)
The neighborhood has been changing a lot during the past few years... It used to be very industrial/working class homes/artist studios, very gritty (a lot of films/TV shows are shot in the area) with not much to do around but great because so close to Manhattan and other bubbly areas like Astoria and South LIC... Now it is booming! A lot of nice bars/restaurants have opened and it is starting to get more and more gentrified... but right now it still has that gritty old-style New York look...

Nathalie and I didn't get to meet each other but everything went just fine (she left us some food, towells and all the info about keys, wi-fi and such). We had to share the kitchen and the toilet with a French family visiting NY that was really kind and friendly, so not a problem. The place is close to the subway and it's really easy to get to Manhattan. Very recommendable
Nous avons passé un super séjour dans l'appartement de Nathalie, où elle n'habite plus, mais elle était là pour nous dès que nous en avions besoin (mail ou téléphone). Métro à moins de 10 minutes à pied, et on arrive à Manhattan très rapidement ! Des petits delis pour se ravitailler juste à côté, ainsi qu'une laverie quasiment au pied de l'immeuble. Au soleil couchant, la vue sur la skyline depuis le toit est à ne pas rater !! L'appart en lui-même n'est pas très grand mais c'est suffisant, et surtout il est super propre, et fonctionnel. Le lit est très confortable ! Merci pour tout Nathalie ! :)
Thank you Nathalie for your fine welcoming! There is not much I could add to existing comments. Everything is as described, good position close to metro station to Manhattan, but also easy to come from the JFK airport using the airtrain and just one metro connection - metro E. About 15 min walk from a big supermarket - Food Bazaar, with fresh fruits and nice selection. A special thank you to Nathalie for letting me leave my big luggage the last day until after-noon, which allowed me to have an additional care-free day of visiting!
La experiencia ha sido increíble. El apartamento de Nathalie es perfecto si deseas visitar NY ya que a 5 minutos caminando se llega a Queens Plaza, donde se pueden coger las lineas R y E, las cuales te dejan en solo dos paradas en la 5ª a la altura de Central Park o de la 53 respectivamente, por lo que en 10-15 minutos REALES estas en pleno Manhattan. Además, ambas lineas descienden por la isla en paralelo hasta llegar a Brooklyn, por lo que son geniales para visitar todo Manhattan y llegar a Brooklyn. El apartamento esta muy bien: cama cómoda, habitación lo bastante amplia para dos personas (y sus maletas), cocina, bañera, etc... Vimos a Nathalie en unas cuantas ocasiones (ya que estaba trabajando) y todo fueron facilidades tanto a la hora de llegar como el último día: un verdadero encanto!!!
Para nosotros, ha resultado una experiencia 10.
Nathalie, si en alguna ocasión de paso por Europa, os acercáis por Barcelona, no dudéis en contactar con nosotros.
After a cancelled flight from Chicago to LGA and a LONG drive to NYC, Nathalie made sure everything was ready for us at her apartment! A perfect place to stop for a couple nights in the city! Highly recommend!
