About this listing
Spacious bedroom with queen size memory foam bed fit for 2 in our charming "old NY" apartment with fantastic views. Super convenient location to 4 trains (all 1 block-2 blocks away). One stop away from Manhattan and right next to trendy Brooklyn!
For those who appreciate real New York old world charm, this apt is located in a very convenient area of Long Island City only 1 stop away from Manhattan. Located on a corner across a park with tons of sunlight drenching the apartment, we have 4 subways all within a short 2 block radius from us. The 7 train right on our block, E and M which is only 1 stop away from Manhattan, G if you want to travel to Greenpoint or Williamsburg or other parts of Brooklyn. Supermarket, diner, deli, restaurants all nearby and the beautiful LIC waterfront only a short walking distance away. Our neighbor MoMA PS1 is across the way from us, you can see and hear all the great events they throw during the summers. Also has a new amazing cafeteria style restaurant inside called Dinette, great for nice lunches.
We are a couple, subletting our biggest room of 3. Our apartment is warm, comfortable and spacious with a lot of character. Best of all, has big windows to an amazing view of the city skyline without having to stay in a boring "cookie cutter" new built apartment or a chain hotel. The living room is large with exposed brick, old mismatched furniture, tons of books and a small pet snake in a safe tank.
Kitchen is also great and spacious, really nice to cook in and with a new dishwasher. Bathroom is shared. It's has a big old claw foot tub with shower.
This apartment has a few creaks and cracks but overall its clean, big and comfortable.
Our bedroom is just simple and clean, big enough for 2. This is the only bedroom that has a window to the skyline view. Besides a door, there are also big wooden sliding doors that open up to living room if you want to feel more open. The whole wall is exposed brick, just has a queen sized bed (with brand new memory foam mattress), an old dresser and armoire. We will provide clean bedding and towels.
We do want to advise that this is a 5 floor walk up but very worth it, and we enforce a no shoe policy please.
This neighborhood is a great mix of young adults, singles, families, it has a good blend of all. Its embodies true NY without it being an obnoxious scene. You can be tucked away from the fast city but its super close. The area is very convenient to get to wherever you want. Theres also really great restaurants really nearby and a beautiful waterfront blocks away.
we would appreciate no shoes in the apt especially on our rug
if you need to smoke inside, pls go to our pleasant sunny smoking nook (red loveseat surrounded by large windows) and smoke out of the window please.
