*Our neighborhood within NYC is called Astoria. It is a hidden gem in the New York NY metropolitan area. We are located in a serene and very SAFE neighborhood. It is a wonderful and interesting neighborhood.......
Astoria is very close to midtown Manhattan and so it is an ideal location in which base yourself to enjoy and explore NYC. This is especially true for our house because we are so close to a major subway stop and subway line.
Astoria is known as a "Greek" community (people from Greece live here). Our area of Astoria is a vibrant mix of greeks, italians, "hipsters", midsters, oldsters, brazilians, yuppies, japanese, chinese, and just about everyone else in the world is represented. It is fun and interesting to be mixed into the multi-cultural atmosphere.
Astoria has a unique small town atmosphere but located very close to Manhattan.
Astoria is loaded with restaurants, bars, clubs, and shopping galore. Just about anything that you would want to buy you can find it here. Marshalls and many other discount retailers are very close to our house.
Our neighborhood is considered to be one of the most "up and coming" and popular neighborhoods in NYC.. People often describe Astoria as the east part of Midtown or the east side of the east side of Manhattan. Astoria is a much sought after neighborhood. It is easy and fun to walk around Astoria and soak in the many different subcultures of people groups within Astoria. You will find authentic and inexpensive restaurants from literally all over the world. There are coffee shops, pubs, bars, clubs and parks galore.
It's fun here.

* The 46th st. station for the subway trains (R and M lines) is less than a block away from our house so it is easy access to the NYC subway system. From the 46th st. station, it is approximately a 15 minute subway ride (4 stops) to the first stop in Manhattan (the Lexington station).
It is relatively easy to park your car in our neighborhood.

Other Things to Note
*We are located very close to Manhattan and we have much more peace and calm in our neighborhood than you will find in Manhattan.
*Our backyard has a porch and patio area and a garden. The sun hits the back porch nicely in the a.m.
The beds are ikea beds. We have only heard positive comments about the mattress quality
*2 Ikea beds with a queen size mattress (for two people each). Plus there is 1 Ikea twin sized bed (for one person). So there are 3 total beds.
*We have a small refrigerator, a sink, a microwave, a toaster and an electric kettle in your room. And we provide the linens, towels, a hairdryer and essentials like soap, shampoo and t.p.
We recommend our place for up to 3 adults but we can accomodate up to 5 adults if you don't mind being a bit crowded.
Our home was built in the late 1930's. We particulary admire American design from this time period so we have some vintage furniture from the 1930's in the apartment.

Location is good but if you want to bring your car, you need to move it everyday since the parking hours are all different on the street. Good experience. Thank you.
We had very pleasant stay at Dennis. He even helped us with reparking our car for street cleaning.
The apartment was nice and it was like on the photos posted. Dennis was very nice and helpful host and everything worked well with him. He was even kind enough to let us keep our luggage in the garace on our departure date until our flight in the evening.
The stay was wonderful. Dennis was there to greet us. The description of the house was accurate. There was a Rite Aid conveniently located nearby, as well as a number of nice restaurants. Also the subway stations were close by, which made the morning commute easier. Thank you for hosting us!
Dennis was a very lovely host! with a wonderful place; it is indeed very cozy with a nice New York feel. My friends and I arrived pretty late at around 11pm but Dennis gave us great instructions to getting into the apartment. They also wrote down great places to visit around the area! The internet was great and the back porch was very nice! I wouldn't have second thoughts about booking here if you're planning a trip to New York!
