About This Listing
LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION!!! Clean, comfy, well stocked up - a real HOME AWAY FROM HOME!
I would like to invite you to freshly renovated, great 1 bedroom apartment in the heart of the hottest NYC neighborhoods - LONG ISLAND CITY ❤️
APARTMENT LAYOUT AND AMENITIES:
❤️ The apartment is located on a quiet block in heart of LIC. It has two rooms - one bedroom, one living room, long hallway, a bathroom and a kitchen.
❤️ There is a queen bed and a sofa in the bedroom, and two full futon beds in the living room available for your convenience. Perfect for parents with two or three children or even for 2 couples with an extra friend. Perfect for 5 friends coming together or for a group of people that works together or is in town for business :)
There are two dressers in the bedroom and one in the living room as well as two bookshelves.
❤️ Kitchen is fully stocked with the coffee maker, microwave, toaster, George Foreman grill and all kinds of utensils and spices.
❤️ The bathroom is fully stocked with ALL KINDS OF COSMETICS, SHAMPOOS, 2 HAIR DRYERS, IRON AND CLEANING SUPPLIES. There is a shower and the tub.
❤️ I DO PROVIDE THE TOWELS AND SHEETS.
❤️ We have a very high speed WIFI available ❤️
ABOUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD:
❤️ Very sunny, convienently located right across of MOMA PS1 museum, which is a really hot spot for the summer LIVE PARTIES AND CONCERTS.
❤️ 1minute walk to 3 major subways - 7,E,M, one stop away from 42nd st- Grand Central station or 51st/Lex Ave.
❤️ So you are in the middle of NYC in just 5 minutes!
There is also a G train that can take you to Greenpoint, Williamsburg or anywhere in Brooklyn.
So you are in the middle of The City in just 5minutes!
❤️ LIC is simply the best place to stay in the whole city, and trust me, I have lived in 10 neighborhoods in Brooklyn, Queens and Manhattan. I live in LIC for the last 8y and I am not planning on moving anywhere else!
❤️ GREAT FEATURE ABOUT LIC BY AIRBNB:
❤️ Many other ads will say "10 minutes to Manhattan" but it's NOT TRUE.
LIC is the closest area to the city center. That's a guarantee!
Just look at the map and type the zip code 11101, THE HOTTEST ZIP CODE IN THE CITY.
❤️The Lonely Planet magazine which is a number one Tourist Magazine called LIC THE BEST DESTINATION TO GO IN 2014!!!
Developers here are currently building luxury condos and rental apartments one after another, and new restaurants and all other kinds of retail open every single week.
❤️ You can take a cab from midtown to LIC and it will cost you around $10-15.
If you want to rent a place in Greenpoint, you are stuck in there because of the subway line voted worst train ever - G, and cab one way to the closest point in the city will cost you at least $25.
Williamsburg also puts you lower on the map relatively to the entire Manhattan, and you will waste more time in the subways commuting. But LIC is in the center of EVERYTHING!
❤️I would be more than happy to show you around LIC or help you to get around in the city, give the best tips and help with anything you will need.
❤️ I have a lot of friends in the whole building, and they are extremely friendly and helpful people in case you wouldn't be able to reach me for any help or advice (which I don't think would happen, as I always pick up my cell, or text back).
HOW TO GET TO THE APARTMENT:
❤️ Best way to get to the apartment:
- very easy access to JFK airport by E train And Air Train (good deal for 2-3people/grown ups traveling together)
- JFK $45 by yellow cab (better deal money wise and easier if you are traveling with kids)
- 15-20 cab from LGA airport (there is no subway from LGA and I don't advise you to take the bus).
❤️ If there is 5 people traveling - please get the bigger yellow cab at the airport - the airport taxi dispatchers will help you :)
❤️ If you drive there is Queensborough Bridge and Midtown Tunnel that both take you to Manhattan - only 5 blocks drive away from the apartment.
❤️ Pulaski Bridge is located only 4 blocks away and it takes you to Greenpoint/Brooklyn/BQE.
❤️There is a parking right in front of the building or on the adjacent streets, or a guard parking few blocks away, which charges $15 per 24h.
❤️The building is a pre-war building with a great heating and strong AC. I keep the place well maintained and ultra clean. I travel a lot and I understand the needs of travelers. I love being a host, and I am very enthusiastic about the entire Airbnb idea.
❤️ I always meet and greet my guests upon their arrival.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions!

Après l'avoir appelée dès notre arrivée, notre hôtesse nous a accueilli à la nuit tombée afin de nous faire découvrir son appartement ainsi que ses suggestions de promenade, restaurant et shopping à proximité. Elle s'est ensuite enquise de notre confort pendant notre séjour.
Le quartier, très calme (contrastant avec Manhattan), donne sur les berges de l'East river où une petite promenade à la nuit tombée nous a fait découvrir les lumières de la "grosse pomme". Une petite supérette à 200m et un supermarché un peu plus loin a comblé notre estomac.
Nous avons découvert par hasard que l'annexe du MoMA (PS1) était juste à côté, et que nous étions au pied de plusieurs stations de métro nous permettant de nous rendre très rapidement au coeur de Manhattan ainsi que dans le Queens où nous avons marché parmi des oeuvres de Street Art magnifiques.
Bref, notre séjour d'une semaine à 4 dans son appartement typique a été merveilleux.
Victoria is very friendly. We had no problem for the check-in with a lot of information given by Victoria. Furthermore she was very flexible for the check out (we had our return flight late in the evening and she let us the apartment until 7 pm).
We had a pleasant stay. The apartment is located in the heart of Long Island City not so far Vernon Boulevard and staying there was a very good choice. The neighborhood is quite and safe. Everything you need is located close to the house.
The apartment is simple but very functional and conform to the description.
Very close to the subway stations, 5 minutes walk to the nearest station and 10 min for 2 others stations... convenient ! In few minutes you are in the heart of Manhattan The apartment was clean. It is a very good value for money. We are a family of 4. We stayed 7 days in Victoria's apartment. There are 2 separate rooms, so it was convenient for us. Because we spend a lot of time outside Queens (we were lucky with the weather), we have not really taken the time to explore the surroundings around the apartment. We had only one brunch in the Bare Burger restaurant in the Vernon Blvd (next to the church) but there are a lot of other restaurants and many choices in the Boulevard.
For runners you have a quick access to Central Park with the E train (30 min to reach the park). Running here is magic ! so don't hesitate to bring your shoes with you !
I sincerely recommend this apartment and I thank Victoria again.
Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour avec nos 3 ados ! L'appartement est très confortable, au calme et tout proche de Manhattan (10 min de métro). Au bout de la rue, au bord de la rivière, une vue superbe sur les buildings !
Un grand merci à Olivia pour l'accueil chaleureux et les bons conseils ...
Nous recommandons cet appartement aux personnes qui souhaitent profiter d'un peu de calme le soir après une journée de visite New Yorkaise.
La proximité du métro était aussi très pratique et notamment la ligne E vers l'aéroport : avec les valises remplies, nous avons apprécié de ne pas avoir à changer de lignes.
Si nous revenons à New York, nous reviendrons avec plaisir chez Olivia :-)

The most cost-effective accommodation and very good location.
Det var lätt att hitta till lägenheten tack vare beskrivning på Airbnb. Uppskattade de små tipsen på kylskåpet om restaurangerna i närheten och hur man enklast tar sig till olika ställen.
Uppskattade att någon mötte upp när vi kom.
Hyfsat tyst område, kändes säkert att röra sig i. Nära till tunnelbanan. Väl värt pengarna för en familj. Bra med separata rum med tillräckligt många sängar för 6-7 personer. Köket lite trångt för så många. (Passar för max 4)
Esta foi a primeira viagem da minha família para New York e a experiência com o Airbnb foi muito boa. Olivia foi uma excelente anfitriã, nos recepcionou na chegada e nos apresentou o apartamento, que é como o retratado nas fotos, nos deixando bem a vontade. Ela também nos deu algumas dicas sobre o bairro e a linda vista de Manhatan e se colocou à disposição para nos auxiliar em qualquer necessidade. Sempre pronta em nos responder. Recomendo o apartamento da Olivia!
