Where you’ll be

Flushing, New York, United States

Flushing is a safe NYC residential neighborhood, with much opportunity for shopping and ethnic eats, including Chinese, Korean, Indian, Afghani, Thai, Malayasian, Italian, Greek, and of course, pizza!

Flushing is known as the birthplace of religious freedom in the U.S. You can practice your faith or take in the services of Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Catholic, various Protestant, Eastern Orthodox, LDS (Mormon), and Jehovah's Witness, and more, all within walking distance.

We are located by a beautiful city park with tennis, basketball, and handball courts, a golf course, hiking trails, and NYC's only velodrome for biking. The park connects with the Greenbelt to take you all over the city on bicycle.

If you love tennis, we are a leisurely 2-mile/3.6km walk, about 35-50 minutes depending on how fast you walk, to the U.S. Tennis Open in August-September as well as boat rentals, and the site of the Dragonboat Festival in August. It's also the site of the Meadows Festival, FEASTival in Queens, and Maker Faire in September. The Mets play in the same park at Citifield. The Hall of Science, Queens Museum, and Queens Theater are also located in this park. You can also get to the park with NYC transit in 30 minutes or by LIRR, Murray Hill station, with a 10-15 walk and 3-minute train ride. The LIRR will also take you to Manhattan in 20 minutes but it costs more and is not covered by the Metrocard.

If you love jazz, you are steps away from Louis Armstrong's grave and within 3 miles/6 km of his home and archives.

Are you looking to visit your children who have moved to the "big city" but have no room for you in their tiny apartment? My home is the perfect place to stay comfortably, with plenty of parking. It's also a great location for college visits to St. John's University, Queens College, Hofstra University, and Adelphi University or interviews at Flushing Hospital or New York-Presbyterian Hospital Queens.

A fourth-generation native New Yorker, I love sharing my hometown with people from everywhere. I have been an Airbnb host for several years and also use the site for my own travel plans. I have been a SuperHost for the majority of that time, but with the scarcity of guests in 2020, I lost my status by one-tenth of a point, but I still think I am a "super" host! With roots in every one of the five boroughs, of NYC, I can recommend hidden spots the typical tourist might not see. Enjoy the Edgar Allen Poe House in the Bronx, the Jacques Marchais Tibetan Museum in Staten Island, great places to eat in Queens--the most diverse county in the United States. I have traveled to 35 of the 50 U.S. states, most Canadian provinces, and all over Europe and South America. I've worked in a youth hostel in Austria and was an exchange student in Denmark. I am an avid biker, swimmer, traveler, and have completed numerous marathons. I work full-time, and since the pandemic, that has been from home, so I am always available by cell phone to answer questions or help with your travel plans. I also have two adult children who work outside the home at odd hours, so my son will be sleeping during the day and my daughter might be coming home at midnight. We are a busy house AND ALL FULLY VACCINATED AGAINST COVID. While Flushing is located 10 miles/16 km from midtown Manhattan, there is good NYC transit, and my place is very affordable in a very safe (1 of top 10 safest in NYC), interesting, and quiet neighborhood. It's a home, not a hotel, with all the pros and cons that come with that.
