About The Owner

We are two artists, one American painter and one British sculptor, who are avid world travelers ourselves (India, Italy and South East Asia are our favorite destinations!) and enjoy sharing our passionate love of New York with visitors. 'See the Real New York' is our motto! As a result, we offer real 'insider' tips to the best art galleries, museum shows and other events currently on view. As real 'foodies' and 'locavores' we can direct you to the best eats for the best price, from Farmer's Markets to 5 star restaurants, especially in our great Long Island City neighborhood. We personally renovated this apartment with love and sweat and an eye for design, elegance and charm.

Why The Owner chose Queens

We absolutely love Queens, Long Island City where this loft is located. You are in Manhattan in 5 minutes by subway or you can stay in the neighborhood, enjoy the countless hipster restaurants, art galleries, walk along the East River Park and see the glorious Manhattan skyline, or take the bus 5 minutes to ultra chill Greenpoint or Williamsburg Brooklyn for even more art galleries, restaurants, etc. The building is on a lovely, tree-lined quiet block. The subway is a one minute walk from the apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is superb for Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. All can be accessed by subway ( 1 minute walk from the apt.) or, bus or the very fun East River Ferry service.

Guestbook comments from the owner

NYを旅行する両親が3週間滞在しました。

まず、交通の便がとてもいいです。Grand Central(マンハッタン)まで一駅で

この駅は大きな乗り換え駅になっているので、ここからいろいろな方向へ足を

伸ばすことができます。

それからホテルの場所が駅から徒歩1分、警察署の目の前ということで治安もばつぐんです。

すぐ近くにきれいなスーパーがあるので、毎日の外食で疲れてしまった時に

ここでお惣菜を買って帰ったり、簡単なものをつくったりするだけでもだいぶ違います。

ホテル自体も広々として清潔なので、日本人の方でも安心して泊まれると思います。

I love, love, love the Blue loft in LIC!! My 16-yr-old daughter and I rented it for the month of July while she was attending dance training in the city. Previous summers we have stayed in Manhattan but now feel we have found our home-away-from-home with this gem. More bang for the buck in this true 2-bedroom apartment with a perfect view of the Chrysler building. Even plenty of room for my husband and son to join us the last several nights of our stay!
The neighborhood is great with beautiful Gantry Plaza State Park nearby (talk about the best view of the city skyline!) along with a plentiful variety of quaint restaurants and convenient groceries all within walking distance. It felt like an escape from the hustle-bustle yet only a one-minute walk to the subway that goes straight to Grand Central in about 5 minutes. The best of both worlds!

2 Week NYC Stay

  • 4 of 5
Our apartment lived up to its advertising in every way. It was really good being on Long Island yet so close to Central Station and Times Sq.
The Apartment was appointed very nicely and met all our needs. Comfortable and well equipped.

My daughter and I felt that the view from the back windows was very reminiscent of Hitchcock's movie THE REAR WINDOW and although we never saw a soul, it added a little intrigue to our stay.

The restaurants in the close vicinity were excellent. The bus service which we took a few times down to Brooklyn was superb and the underground station just 1 min from the front door was really convenient. The Managers were welcoming and very helpful in a variety of ways during our stay.

Although working fine , the air conditioners in the bedrooms were way too noisy which made the nights a little uncomfortable in the NY summertime.

Having said that, I would without question, return for my next stay in NYC there if I am luck enough to return. Totally recommended.

Owner's Response: It was great to have Chris and his daughter for their 2 month stay in the Loft. It was wonderful to see how much of a home they made while here in NY. We are investigating some other AC options- however, they are a feature of NY summer living! Looking forward to having them stay again.

Perfect location for a 2 month stay

  • 5 of 5
A great apt. In a very cool neighborhood. The subway is so close with Grand Central only 1 stop away you can get anywhere easily. Faster than if we'd stayed in Manhattan. While easy enough to go back and forth we often chose LIC restaurants. We ate very well, met wonderful people and always felt very safe. We loved Gantry Park and spent a lot of time there watching the NYC skyline, water and people. Loved seeing the Empire State Building on my walk to the Grocery store. LIC is a great balance of new, stylish, modern and a real New York neighborhood. While I really love the City I think 2 months there would have been too hard. Here I got space, light, community and I could still be at the Met in 30 minutes. David and Margaret, thank you for being wonderful hosts.

New York 2013/2014

  • 5 of 5
I've visited New York several times before and always stayed in Manhattan. In December 2013 I attended a course at the International Culinary Center and needed a long stay residence.

Being from South Africa, I found it a rather daunting to look for a clean, safe place to stay. David was excellent in allaying all my fears and finding the perfect place to stay.

Long Island City in Queens is going through a process of gentrification and it is great to see the transformation into a modern city. Good restaurants, food stores nearby and down the road there is a lovely safe walk/run course along the banks of the East River with the Manhattan skyline in the distance.

The apartment is conveniently situated, 5 minutes away from the nearest Subway station and five minutes to Grand Central station, Manhattan. The International Culinary Center is situated on the corner of Grand and Broadway and it took all of 20 minutes to reach the Culinary Center using the local 6 train.

The apartments in Long Island City is a great option for people looking for a space to relax but near enough to join in the frenetic Manhattan lifestyle. The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures and is a lot better than living in a hotel room.

If you are like us, you are wondering about Long Island City. Well don't...it is great! We knew absolutely nothing about Long Island City but decided to take a chance because of the great apartment and its proximity to the subway (less than 1/2 a block). With the next subway stop being Grand Central Station only about 5 minutes away, we found the best of both worlds. We could do all the busy NY/Manhattan things AND we could be in a safe, secure and friendly neighborhood at night. We were thrilled with the kindness of strangers..a young man we met invited us to share an Indian meal in his 21st floor apartment facing Manhattan and we were invited to Thanksgiving dinner by a woman we met. Who says New Yorkers aren't friendly?? We stayed in the "white" loft which is up one flight of stairs. The loft is exactly as it appears online...extremely clean, comfortable and modern. The owners responded very quickly to any questions we had. We found a great grocery store about three blocks away. It has a wonderful assortment of prepared foods which we enjoyed. Laundry is three blocks from the apartment. There are many, many nice restaurants/bars on Vernon Avenue which is the main street in the neighborhood. Staying in the Loft gives you the feeling of belonging in a neighborhood, not being a visitor in a big city. We were introduced to Flushing (feels like you just got off the subway in China), Astoria (welcome to Greece), and Greenpoint (welcome to Eastern Europe). I know we will stay here again the next time our travels take us to New York. We spent three weeks in this lovely apartment.
