I grew up in Montauk, now live in Astoria, NY and love them both. I enjoy meeting new people from all over the world, and hope you can come spend some time with us!
I can highly recommend it. My host and my other flatmates were awesome. Room and apartment were clean. Great located, only two blocks from the subway and a short ride to Manhatten. I would book it again.
for the last 4 years, i've lived in the basement apartment below Emily and she is awesome. she's super duper sweet and awesome! =)
