The space

It's a large one bedroom apartment with private access. The space comes with a large living room, a well stocked kitchen and a separate bedroom. It's an ideal space for 2, but comes with an air mattress and sofa bed for up to 5.

You have access to the backyard which has been designed as an urban getaway: a shaded patio features a large table and a grill, or take a short stone path to the sunny garden where you can lay on a hammock or hangout at a bistro table.

Pervaiz & Laena live upstairs with their daughter. Dinaw & Anne live close by.

The apartment is close to two trains that take you directly to Manhattan and JFK:
* The local C train is less than a two-block walk.
* The express A train is an 8-minute walk
Also:
* The Long Island Rail Road aka LIRR at Nostrand is a quick trip to JFK and a bit longer one to beaches on Long Island, including the Hamptons.

Pervaiz, Laena, Dinaw & Anne

Pervaiz & Dinaw are childhood buddies. We bought a house together, made it our home and would like to share it with you. Dinaw is a writer and professor. Pervaiz is a journalist who writes about crime and food. Occasionally the two cross paths. Laena and Anne put up with our shenanigans.

Pervaiz & Laena, pictured at a road stop outside Big Sur, live upstairs. Dinaw & Anne are close by.

We are American, Canadian mais français aussi y hablamos espanol muy bien. Asi que podeis escribirnos y preguntarnos lo que quereis saber sin problema.

Vous pouvez poser toutes les questions que vous voulez en français ou en anglais.

Per il italiano, valesse la pena tentare..
