Skyline views 15mins to TimesSquare

Apartment - Entire home/apt · 42nd St, Long Island City, NY 11104, United States

The Space

A Penthouse!!! Spectacular sunsets with Manhattan Skyline Backdrop and ONLY 15 Minutes from Times Square, Modern Condo - Perfect for a couple, Comfy Sofabed for extra guests.

This is also an excellent apartment that can be used as a EXECUTIVE SUITE for traveling professionals.

This apartment is in the beautiful Sunnyside neighborhood in Queens which is truly "a gem" as written by the New York Magazine. The neighborhood is safe and quiet at the same time; it is lively with hundreds of diverse restaurants and bustling bars.

There is a full size bed in the bedroom and 2 sofa beds in the living room. One of the sofa bed pulls out to be a queen size bed (comfortable for 2-3 people) and there is an additional sofa bed that pulls out to a twin sized bed. There are memory foam mattresses that we like to put on top of the sofa beds for extra comfort.

The apartment is a block away from CVS Pharmacy, 15 minutes from Manhattan, 2 minutes to subway trains and major highways.

The living room and bed room have uninterrupted Manhattan skyline views with spectacular orange sunsets and glowing city lights after sunsets.

So, why spend extra $$ at a small hotel or room in Manhattan with no view when you can have a Beautiful, spacey apartment with City Views and multiple dining options at a fraction of the price. Save your money for some extra shopping!

The apartment has all modern amenities including Wi-Fi, towels, sheets, linens, pots, pans, plates, iron, iron board, and hair dryer. One towel per guest will be provided and can easily be washed in the washer/dryer in the apartment at your leisure.

PARKING: The parking is free on the streets. The street infront of the apartment has street parking on both sides on the street. In addition, there is also municipal parking half a block from the apartment which offers 25¢ per 20 minutes and is free after 10PM and on Sundays.

PHONE: To provide more convenience for our guests who will be traveling internationally, we can provide a phone with unlimited calling and texting within the US (you can use a phone card for international calls as well) for only $5 initial fee and then $5 for any days that the phones are used (no pay for the days not used). If you would like to add this, please let us know in advance.

This is not a share. The entire apartment will be exclusively occupied by the guests that book the apartment.

Check in time is flexible and the check out is at 11 am. Feel free to contact us for other check in/check out times as we will always make an attempt to accommodate your requests.

Come to live like a True New Yorker!

We hope you will find comfort in our apartment and will keep it clean.

  • It’s a very beautiful apartment! We were surprised that everything looked exactly like on the pictures in the internet. It was very clean, we had a clean towel supply and clean linen.
    It's very central located and the subway is only 2 minutes away. You don't need much time to Manhattan Times Square.
    The host was also very nice and helpful. So we really recommend the apartement!

  • perfect!

  • Nous avons passé 8 nuits dans cet appartement avec notre fille de 5 ans. Il est très bien situé, à moins de 5 minutes d'une station de métro qui mène directement à Time Square, ils est propre, bien équipé (lave linge et sèche linge très pratique), situé au dernier étage c'est encore mieux.
    Les contacts avec les propriétaires se sont fait par mails avec une réponse assurée et de bons conseils.
    Si nous revenons un jour, nous reprendrons ce logement sans hésitation.

  • My boyfriend and I stayed in Sunnyside for our trip to New York last week and it was just the perfect location. Literally 2 min away from the train station and 15 minutes ride to Time Square.

    The apartment was really nice and clean. Perfect size for two and a nice kitchen to use when you don't want to eat out. There is plenty of good restaurants in the neighborhood. You can walk everywhere!

    I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!!

  • Great! Can't add much to prior comments.

    February 2014
  • Really nice location. Although weather was not perfect, we were able to move from Queen to Times Square quite easily. And when we have questions, we are always able to get quick response from the host. If I will visit NYC again, definitely I will check availability of this venue.

  • If you are reading the comments to figure out whether you should book this place, stop right there and go and book your time in Sunnyside and then come back to finish reading, you won't regret it.

    The apartment is everything you need and more to be comfortable. The view and sunset is breathtaking. Super quick to get into the city. It really is as nice as all the photos make out.

    Sunnyside is an amazing neighborhood, get a realistic experience of what life as a New Yorker is like and stay here. I am so glad we stayed here as we were able to discover the well kept secret or Sunnyside.

    The neighborhood harbors no pretenses, only AMAZING restaurants everywhere. I ate at Yum Yum Thai every day - best Thai in the city. The Turkish restaurant next door is also AMAZING and I'm not even sure if I love Turkish food. If you need to be seen, then Salt and Fat was packed out every night with people coming from far and wide to eat there. The apartment is so close to the train [1-2 minute walk under this cool echoey bridge]. You barely hear the train, you can only really hear it if its an occaisonal express train and it speeds through the station, but it's a gentle hum and not intrusive at all.

    Seriously, the location cannot be beaten, close to every kind of shop selling every kind of random convenience you can think of.

    The bed was the most comfortable bed I have ever slept on, I didn't want to leave! The cutlery was so chic, little details like this made us feel like we were really staying somewhere upmarket.

    The apartment is beautiful, just the right size, compact but not too small and very well planned out. You get the feeling that someone very well to do used to live there and had it all kitted out with the finest things, all of which still remain; unlike most Airbnb budget ny places which can make you wonder whether they've been furnished by freegans…

    The central heating works so well and so silently and isn't one of those loud noisy A/C things. The bathroom included shampoos, towels, there was even nail varnish remover. The laundry facilities were a godsend, really easy to use and very handy.

    We spent almost two weeks here and had a very inspirational stay, we had just moved from Dubai and were looking for a permanent place to rent, and this made us seriously consider Sunnyside; if we could find something with equally great proximity to the train, and a comparable view of the city…

    Don't miss out! We cannot recommend Sunnyside enough! So lucky to have discovered this neighborhood, we have moved elsewhere on the 7 train route and will be coming all the way back to 42nd st for Thai food and supermarket conveniences…

    Thanks Brian and Krippa for hosting such a wonderful apartment. All the best.
