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!

Appartement très pratique bien situé (desservi par 3 lignes de métro et à 10 minutes de times square ), nous avons pu nous garer gratuitement en face de l'appartement. Accueil super, Olivia à été très gentille et disponible. Des resto sympas à proximités et une vue à couper le souffle à 5 minutes à pied...vraiment à recommander pour un voyage à New York!
L'accueil d'Olivia à été très chaleureux, elle nous a donné toutes les explications dont nous avions besoin. Le quartier est calme. Le métro est très proche ainsi qu'une laverie, un petit super marché et des restaurants. L'appartement n'est pas très loin de l'East River avec une vue magnifique sur Manhattan.
L appartement d Olivia est très bien situé dans un quartier calme de Long Island mais a seulement 15 min en métro de Times square
Olivia nous a très bien reçus et nous a aidé a récupérer notre valise égarée
Grâce a tous ces bons conseils et sa disponibilité nous avons passé un très agréable sejour
The apartment is everything you can wish for when you want to visit NYC.
Great location, a few minutes walk from the subway who will then take you to Times Square or Central Park in about 10/15 minutes. Restaurants and supermarket nearby - great park on the river side as well with games for the kids and an amazing view on Manhattan skyline (~10 minutes walk from the apartment)
Warm welcome from Olivia who was easily reachable in case of need and who provided us lots of good advice.
Highly recommended by the whole family (we spent 6 days there with our 3 kids)
We enjoyed our 3 night stay at this well equipped and comfortable apartment. Olivia was very responsive and easy to contact, which was wonderful. The location was wonderful - an easy short walk to three subway lines, two grocery stores, and just down the street is a wonderful park (worth the visit!). Our family of 5 had a great visit!!
This is a wonderful place. Comfortable beds for the four of us. Our son and daughter even had their own full size bed. It's so close to the subway and good restaurants. Beata checked us in and told us everything we needed to know, but if we had questions, they were all answered by the info posted on the refrigerator. This place had the feel of a manhattan brownstone without the price or the hassle. The only warning I would give to out of towners is prepare to spend an hour looking for parking, then leave your car alone until you're ready to leave. The subway will get you where you want to go.
Very nice location and decent price, transportation is convenient and you can find supermarket and delicious food just around the corner, anyway the staying was nice.
