About this listing
Our quiet and very New-York 2BD is located in Long Island City (Queens) where you can find the best view of the city. One stop from Manhattan (E and 7 trains) and one stop from Brooklyn - you won't find a better location to experience the whole city.
This is an old New-York apartment, with charming details. There is a lot of light during the day and it is very quiet by night.

Long Island City is a beautiful and vibrant neighborhood.
Walk to Vernon Boulevard and experience the heart of LIC, its food and people. Gantry State Park is a beautiful park with the best view of Manhattan in the entire City. You are located between several delis and close by two supermarkets (Key Food, 1 block, and Food Cellar, 7 blocks).
There are more cultural destinations in Long Island City than in any other neighborhood in Queens. A 5 minute walk to MoMA PS1 (the contemporary annex to MoMA), the Chocolate Factory Theater for experimental dance performance, the Sculpture Center, Socrates Sculpture Park, and the Noguchi Museum all within walking distance.
Long Island City is an incredibly convenient neighborhood because of its proximity to the other boroughs and its exceptional transit system. You are on the E, 7, M, & G trains and an easy walk to the N, Q, & R trains. You are one stop from Manhattan (Midtown) and one stop from Brooklyn (Greenpoint and Williamsburg two stops further). Located in Queens, you can also explore the best of Queens.
Other things to note
We are generous hosts and will likely offer to cook a meal or two for house guests. We have lots of ideas as to things to do in the neighborhood and around the City. Feel free to ask advice for your trip upon booking and we'll be happy to share.
We simply ask that you treat the house with the same respect you'd treat the aunt that you always liked - no music late at night or house guests (aside from you, of course!). We don't care how late you're out, but ask that you arrive quietly if you come back very late (especially on a work night).
