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, 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. :-)
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 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 is a great host. She is enthusiasm and friendly. Cody is soooooooo cute. And the location is great just 10 minutes from the river where you could get a great overview of the city. We got some awesome pictures. Oh, and this area has all different kinds of restaurants. Enjoy everything here during our stay!
Extremely nice, very welcoming and helpful. Would stay again!
Lori & Cody are amazing. No where else will you feel so at home. Apartment is as pictured, clean, comfy, close to the subway and beautiful Gantry Park. We'll be back at Lori's for our next trip to the City for sure!
We had a wonderfull time during our stay at Lori's place. She was very nice and make you feel like your at home. It was no problem to use the kitchen or livingroom and she had everything needed for a pleasant stay! Her apt. is very near the metro and only two stops from 5th Avenue, near Times Square. It was our first experience with AirBnB, but Lori and her stay made it a great one!
My friend and I just loved our lodging in Lory's apartment. Lory is a lovely person, always willing to help you, and the communication was very good, despite my poor English. Also the neighbors in the building are very kind. I have no words to speak of Cody! It is a very polite and loving boy, who conquers the people at first look, or at the first lick. I will miss waking up in the morning and receive his warm good morning.
In addition, it was a very wise choice to stay in LIC. It is a very quiet neighborhood, very close to Manhattan via subway, and has a stunning view at Gantry Plaza State Park.
I definitely highly recommend it to anyone who loves animals, and I hope to be back soon.
Séjour très sympa chez Lori pour ces quelques jours à New-York.
Très bien placé, à seulement 5 min du métro et 15 min du centre de Manhattan.
Lori est très accueillante et son "welcome package" est très (website hidden) pas hésiter à réserver.
We had 5 wonderful nights at Lori's place. It was close to subway and from there to Manhattan.
Our room was great with a comfortable bed and more than enough space.
We used the kitchen every evening.
Lori is a very nice and sweet host and her dog so cute and mellow.
