I used to live in New York and have stayed in this part of Queens before. This is where I would choose to live if I ever returned to New York City. It's a safe, vibrant neighborhood - very close to Manhattan via subway. The rental unit is nothing short of amazing. It is a clean, well furnished, well maintained apartment one short block from an express subway entrance. We (wife, 10 yr old, 12 yr old, and me) stayed a full week and paid considerably less than we would have paid for a cheap hotel room. We ate breakfast in the apartment every morning (walked two long blocks to 37th Avenue for fresh bagels at Foodtown - 3 / $1.00) then took the subway into the city (we bought a weekly pass for each of us). Coming back to the apartment at night was like coming home.
Jason, the property manager, was the best I've encountered in 15 years of booking vacation rentals. To give one example - Jason knew we would be driving to New York, and we texted him as we got near. Jason got to the apartment early, then met us on the street as we turned into 76th Street. He helped us with our luggage after paying for the parking meter in front of the apartment. Then he drove with me to his truck where he had found a parking space for us (if you've ever kept a car in New York you will know what this means). Jason treats you like you are the most important guest he has ever had.
I can't praise this unit highly enough. I have already recommended it to a colleague at work. We definitely plan to stay here on our next trip to New York.
