Astoria (email hidden)ly, safe neighborhood filled with people from all over the world. In fact National Geographic featured Astoria for its diversity in " THE HUMAN FAMILY TREE".
You can expect a safe and secure stay in this conveniently located apartment. The apartment really reflects the neighborhood as one of NYC's hidden gems.
The neighborhood consists of transplants from every where in the world the majority of which are studying and working in film & dance. This might be because of the three major film studios and the Museum of Moving Image located in Astoria.
Also the ten minute ride into the Manhattan does not hurt. We are in one of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in the world with people mostly from Greece, Italy, the Balkan's, Brazil, Colombia, Japan, Bangladesh, Nepal and Mexico. They all have opened their own authentic restaurants in the neighborhood.
Steinway street is a major shopping district with national stores such as STARBUCKS, VICTORIA SECRETS, GAP, GAP KIDS, KINKOS and many others which reside between Broadway and 30th Avenue.
-Subway Access is a short two blocks away (M, R,) at the Steinway station and a ten minute stroll to the Broadway Station (N & Q).
Any of these trains are just a 10 minute ride into the Lexington Avenue and 59th Street stop in Manhattan (leaves you on the corner by the world famous Bloomingdales) and 15 minutes to Times Square. The subway runs all day and night (every 5-7 minutes) and is safe to ride all the time.
In few minutes you can be in Times Square or on Madison/Fifth Avenues window shopping, checking out New York's world famous museums or taking a walk in Central Park, going to the Top of the Rock at Rockefeller Center or seeing a Broadway show or just wandering the streets of Manhattan. We have everything you look for in a great neighborhood...LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.

  • It is my first time in NYC and staying for 3 nights at this gem was one of the best decisions in my vacation. Everything was just like in the picture. All the things I needed are readily provided in the apartment. Very close to both steinway and 46th station so commute to and from manhattan was just around 20 mins. The apartment was clean and I had no problems with my stay. I will definitely come back again. :) Thanks to Marillena and Kiri whom I have met when I arrived and even helped me with my luggages. They were very nice. :) I had no problems with the security of the location, felt safe.

  • The studio was very private, which was perfect. We had a truly memorable time staying in this neighborhood -- anything you could want is literally a couple of blocks away, whether it's food, beauty, shopping, etc. Would stay again! Thanks!

  • Yiota & Marilena made my first AirBnB experience amazing! They respond to you in minutes & are very accommodating. I only have positive things to say about this place - the pictures are all accurate & the place is very clean. The neighbourhood is in the perfect location, literally 2 blocks from the subway and tons of places to eat/shop. I can't thank you girls enough!

  • Our experience with Yiota, her family and the apartment was amazing. Communication was very easy, and problems were solved in seconds. The apartment itself was clean, central and cute. The neighbourhood is full of great restaurants and supermarkets. Even though the entrance to the apartment is kind of unusual, it felt like home right away. As it says: It truly is a hidden gem :-) We definitely warmly recommend this apartment and would love to come back some time!

  • This apartment is the super cute place to stay if you want to have a short way to Manhattan since there is a subway station close to it which brings you in a few minutes into the middle of Manhattan. It is furnished lovely with nice details, the bed is really comfortable and most important it's clean. It was a pleasure for us to stay there for a week, the communication was always easy and we got quick respond. It's definitely a place I would come back!

I was born and raised in the heart of Astoria. It was a great experience growing up in Astoria. The area has really grown and become much more ethnically diverse over the years, but it never loses its charm and small town feel. THE FELLA IN THE PICTURE IS MY UNCLE! My husband and I are recently married and spend much of our time hanging out with friends and family in Astoria. We have a very large family and lots of friends in Astoria who are all very helpful in any venture we pursue. Thanks to family of all ages, we know the best nooks and crannies the neighborhood has to offer. My husband and I operate this AirBNB apartment together. We look forward to providing you with an authentic New York experience.
