The Space

Spacious and handsome duplex apartment on one of the nicest streets in the neighborhood – just steps away from the train, the beautiful waterfront parks, a great cafe, the best bagels in the borough, and a critically-renowned gastropub.

You'll have a private room on the top floor with a window, AC, desk, and large closet. A roomy eat-in kitchen is downstairs, and a comfy couch is in the living room. Your bathroom is directly next to the bedroom and is shared with one of the roommates. Luckily he is out of the house for work from 6:30AM - 7:30 PM each day so you will rarely not have access to the bathroom!

Guest Access

Guests will have access to basically everything. Living room is completely free, you can use all of the kitchen, washer/dryer.

There's a backyard, but that's only available when one of the roommates is home.

Interaction with Guests

Two fairly busy professionals live here. We're more than happy to give tips about the city or nearby restaurants but more often than not you probably won't see us unless it's very late at night.

One of the roommates works in the neighborhood at a startup and is locally available if needed.

The Neighborhood

Long Island City is one of the hottest neighborhoods in NYC, and for good reason. The food here is amazing, and we're just 2 blocks from a beautiful waterfront park. Conde Nast Traveler named LIC the coolest neighborhood in NYC in 2015, and Lonely Planet even called Queens their top place to visit in the world in 2015 as well!

Getting Around

We are less than a block to the 7 train at Vernon-Jackson! This means we are 5 minutes from Grand Central and 10 minutes from Times Square.

Also nearby: G train at 21st, E/M trains at Court Square, LIRR at Hunters Point, and the East River Ferry. Walking distance over the Pulaski Bridge to Greenpoint and Williamsburg (though that's a bit of a trip).

Street parking in our neighborhood is pretty good too. All street parking is free and there are no restrictions for permits. We have no alternative side parking restrictions, which means a car never has to move and we are 3 blocks from the entrance to the Long Island Expressway. There's usually a lot of free spots but there are plenty of convenient parking garages in the area as well if need be.

Your Host



New York, New York, United States · Member since December 2013

We are two roommates who co-host AirBnB Guests in Queens, NY:

One is a Baruch graduate from Long Island who helped found a startup, currently based in Long Island City. He builds furniture in his spare time, knows every up and coming restaurant in the area, and is one of the few people who can pull off Red framed glasses. Ben. Roomate #1.

The other is a displaced Montrealais who was attracted to Queens by it's multiculturalism. He sells Vacuum Systems to Manufacturers by day and pretends to be a chef for his friends by night. He loves jazz music, traveling around the world, and a good burger. Arya. Roomate #2.
