About this listing
"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, 45 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 11-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 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 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:
IMPORTANT: Please be aware that there has recently been some construction across the street from the apartment building. NYC allows construction to happen from 7am-6pm from Monday-Friday. I have not had any guests complain about being woken up but since it's so close it can be loud. I do have earplugs for you and if you are up early and out for the day it will not bother you at all. I just wanted you to be aware. So far it hasn't bothered me too much! :-)
Also during the winter, when the heat goes on, the heat can make banging noises when it goes on (steam pressure in the pipes) and the radiators do not turn off unfortunately! But you can crack the window if it gets too hot! It's not always loud!
Lastly, 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. :-)
Interaction with guests
I interact often!! Would be delighted to chat!
The neighborhood is quiet but so close and convenient to Manhattan. There is a cool art vibe in LIC and the view of the city is spectacular!
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 11, 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 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.
