"My home is your home" is my motto when you come stay in my spacious apt in the cool & trending Long Island City, Queens! Just 1 subway stop to Manhattan! The room fits two comfortably & is located on a quiet street just blocks from 4 subway lines!
I have one large, furnished, private room in a two-bedroom apartment and shared bathroom. The apt building is in an excellent location in the heart of Long Island City/Queens near museums, boutiques, bars, restaurants, coffee shops. The apt is 2-3 blocks to the subway: E, M, 7, and G trains. 15-20 minutes from midtown Manhattan.
The room and apt:
-The apt is on the 1st floor of the building
-Equipt with gas heat, electric, wi-fi, cable (dvr, AC- cable in your room)
-Room has a queen bed, dresser, bedstand, wardrobe, tv and tv stand... there is room for a little more.
Who I am:
I am a young, 43 year woman working in Manhattan. I'm a College Administrator at Hunter College-CUNY. My students keep me young..most people think I'm in my early 30's (very up on pop culture ;-) I work M-F, 9-5, but I'm social so I may be out a few nights a week- usually at the gym or yoga. I'm pretty chill though- like to relax and watch tv (I heart sports too).
Dog-lovers only! :-) I have a gorgeous 9-yr old Olde English Bulldogge named Cody. He is the sweetest most well-behaved pup. He will immediately treat you like family but he is very obedient. My bdlg is pet friendly so if you are traveling with any animals we can chat about you bringing a pet too-my boy loves other animals (cats, dogs) they would preferably get get to meet first, but I realize this may not be possible. (There is a dogpark 1 1/2 blocks away). I also have two fabulous dogwalkers so you could use them as well, if needed.
Pre-war..lots of character, friendly neighbors, amazing super. Laundry is in the building behind us or a few blocks away. Free, quick laundry pick up and drop off service in the neighborhood. There is ample long-term parking on the streets surrounding the bdlg.
Sorry, no smoking in the apt. Linens, towels, hair dryer and iron provided.
BEFORE YOU BOOK, PLEASE NOTE:
Please make sure to check the MTA Subway Train Service Advisories before booking as there have been changes to the train schedules in my area lately. Search for MTA Subway Service Advisories on the web and choose the E, M, 7 and G train lines.
If you have any questions, please let me know.
Your own set of keys! Come and go as you please. :-)
Hi! I see these less as "rules" and more like courtesies, helpful hints and general information. :-)
My work schedule:
I work from 9-5 Monday-Friday and get up around 7-7:30am to get ready for work. I am in the shower M-F around 7:30am. I usually go to bed around midnight, but will be in my room. I am a pretty heavy sleeper so if you come in later than that, I will most likely not hear you, all I ask is that you keep any noise to a minimum.
Cody- the Olde English Bulldogge:
You should definitely be a dog-lover, if you want to stay with us. Cody is a lover! He will immediately see you as family. He is very well trained and will not get into your things (does not chew shoes, etc.), but it is best to keep your door closed when you are going to out of the apt as he has been know snuggle up in the bed of his new "family". I don't want him to go up on your bed when you and I are away, even though he just sleeps. :) Also if he tries to come into your room when you are home, if you don't want him there, just tell him to go and he will. If you are in the living room, he is allowed on furniture and will try to smooch you while you are sitting- again just tell him "off" and he will get down. He listens very well and he is seven, so he is a pretty mature guy. He is white and does shed, but I keep a de-shredder at the front door. And I constantly sweep and clean up the hair. Lastly, I do have two dogwalkers who comes in a few times a week, so please do not fret if someone comes into the apt to get Cody. I have known these dogwalkers for 7 years and if I trust them with my puppy, I trust them with everything. They are awesome people!
There is no cigarette smoking in the apt. I am on the first floor and you can smoke right outside of the building.
During your stay, I am not responsible for any lost or stolen goods or personal liability of any kind.
Lori ist eine wundervolle, liebevolle und hilfsbereite Gastgeberin, der ich viel mehr als eine tolle Unterkunft verdanke! Bei unserer Ankunft gingen unsere Koffer verloren, leider 7 von 9 Tagen insgesamt. Sie half uns und tat mehr als ich jemals erwartet hätte. Ihre Wohnung liegt sehr Zentral, lediglich einige Minuten von Manhattan entfernt, Subway und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind in 2 min zur Fuß zu erreichen, also super Lage! Die Wohnung war sehr schön eingerichtet und sauber, alles genauso wie in der Beschreibung angegeben. Unser Zimmer war total gemütlich, wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und kommen gerne wieder. Ihr Hund Cody ist mehr als gut erzogen und wir haben ihn in den 9 Tagen sehr lieb gewonnen. Tipps und Ratschläge zu Restaurants, Ausflügen usw bekommt man von Lori auch, lohnt sich echt diesen auch nachzugehen! Wir kommen gerne wieder!!! :) Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit! xoxo Janina und Sarah
nice host!Thank you so much for your care!The first day we got there,you helped us to find the parking lot and the shop to buy cat litter!You are so kind!And I still remember the gentle dog Cody
Lori est une personne très accueillante, elle nous attendait lors de notre arrivée tard le soir. Ses indications étaient très précises et nous n'avons eu aucun problème pour arriver chez elle.
Elle nous a mises à l'aise dès notre arrivée en nous proposant à boire et en précisant que "my home is your home" durant notre séjour.
La chambre est comme sur les photos et la salle de bain et la cuisine sont très propres.
Long Island est agréable, nous avons eu l'idée de prendre le Ferry sur l'East River depuis Dumbo pour rejoindre LIC ce que nous permis une ballade agréable et de découvrir également la vue magnifique sur Manatthan.
Il y a beaucoup de restaurants sympas, nous en avons testé deux.
3 Lignes de métro se trouvent près de chez Lori qui amènent à Manatthan ou Brooklyn en 10 min.
Nous avons adoré notre séjour à New York et recommandons sans hésiter cette hôte.
Son chien Cody est très mignon.
Lori was a great host. She respected the guest and very generous about sharing her place. The room is exact like the pictures and she decorated well. I got everything I need in the room. Very pleasant experience.
Excellent séjour chez Lori !
Elle nous a accueilli chaleureusement, malgré notre retard. Nous avons récupéré les clés de l'appartement et avons pris nos marques.
La chambre est très spacieuse et agréable. L'appartement est bien situé, il y a 2 stations de métro à proximité.
Cody est un chien adorable, il est affectueux et ne dérange en rien le séjour bien au contraire :)
Nous avons discuté avec Lori et passé un agréable moment, je recommande cet appartement sans hésitation.
I and my wife stayed at Lori's place in February 2015 for one week. Lori and Cody (her dog) were very kind and welcoming to us. They made us feel like we are at home. The room is exactly the same as in the pictures. The house has a very good location. There are bunch of grocery stores, diners and bakeries nearby. It is very convenient to go city center, times square, midtown by subway (It is only couple of stops away).
It was really nice stay in Lori's home! She was the sweetest host ever. She was very welcoming and easy to talk to. She told me everything we would be curious about before we asked her. Me and my friend felt very comfy during the stay. Also Cody, her dog was so adorable! The neighborhood is nice and quiet. E train station is very close, about 5 min walking. Also very close to Manhattan— just one stop by subway. Oh, the heater was really nice as well. It was freezing cold when we got there, but we didn't feel cold at all. She even offered an extra heater!
I highly recommend her room!
