MODERN SUNNY 2 BEDROOM APARTMENT, 1 MINUTE WALK TO TRAIN, 10 MINS TO MANHATTAN

Queens Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, 1 Queen Air Mattress, Sleeps up to 6

The Modern Sunny 2 Bedroom Apartment is located just a 1 minute walk to the train station, as it is right around the corner. From there, it takes only 10 minutes to reach Manhattan by train.

This wonderful two-bedroom apartment is located in the lively Astoria, New York City and features tasteful, modern and mid-century modern furniture and fixtures throughout. The apartment is very sunny, airy, and spacious. At about 850 square feet, the apartment takes up the entire floor of the townhouse.

The living room is very large and comfortable, with a beautiful modern sectional sofa and classic Panton lounge chair. There is a large flat-screen television to watch movies via satellite tv, which sits atop the beautiful solid walnut media cabinet.

Make a meal with ease and enjoyment in the fully equipped kitchen. Whether you make a feast from scratch, or whip up a simple meal, or just order in from one of the many amazing nearby restaurants, you can dine on the amazing Saarinen rosewood dining table as you sit comfortably in the classic original Saarinen dining chairs, under the beautiful warm, modern lighting that can be doubled as a piece of art.

The main bedroom is in the rear of the townhouse, overlooking the garden, which makes for a totally peaceful night's sleep. There is a Tempur-Pedic queen size mattress, which sits on top of the beautiful solid maple bed. The Tempur-Pedic mattress is perhaps the best mattress available and will most certainly provide you with a therapeutic and rejuvenating night's sleep. Just what you need to have in your home away from home!

The second bedroom, which is also located in the rear of the house, has a sofa bed made in Denmark that turns into a very comfortable bed between a queen and king size and there is a solid walnut dresser. ***Update: We have now added a queen size Tempur-Pedic mattress to the second bedroom as well. The mattress is currently sitting nicely on top of the opened up orange sofa bed. New photos will be added soon.***

The bathroom features exquisite floor to ceiling carrara marble tile. There is also an amazing skylight above, which fills the bathroom with natural light all day. After a long day, step into the bathroom for a warm and soothing therapeutic shower, under the 10-inch rain showerhead and 6 shower jets, which are sure to massage and relax you. Get ready for a day or evening out, as you make use of the expansive wall mirror and beautiful solid walnut vanity with wall faucet and vessel sink.

The neighborhood of Astoria is the most diverse area in New York City. You will find this special area to be very conveniently located to many shops, boutiques, markets, restaurants, cafes, bars, beer gardens, museums, parks, and any other establishment that one needs or wants to have nearby in an urban setting. Many restaurants in Astoria have been highly rated by the Zagat restaurant guide, recommended in the prestigious Michelin guide, and raved about in The New York Times. For you, our guest, is a large welcome booklet in the apartment, which will help you with your planning, as it includes details such as an extensive list of restaurants in the area, many nearby markets, and a map of the area with key points. This booklet will help to immediately get you familiar with the area.

The apartment altogether is very enjoyable to wake up, relax, eat, and sleep in. It is sunny and cheerful, clean, new, fresh, and will contribute plenty of happiness and wonderful memories to your holiday in New York City!

Born and raised in Astoria, Queens, New York City, I am happy to always have been able to call New York City my home. I am an avid tennis player, golfer, and snowboarder. Me and my wife, Jessica, enjoy hosting our guests throughout the year and are always available to ensure that all of our guests have a happy stay!

Jason Riggs purchased this apartment in 2006

The apartment is located in my townhouse in Astoria, Queens, New York City. I love it here in Astoria, as it is so welcoming and there is always something to do here. The townhouse is located just around the corner from the train station and only 10 minutes by train to reach Manhattan, so it is very conveniently located. The townhouse is also in perhaps one of the safest areas in New York City, as it is predominantly families and young professionals who live here in Astoria.

Located just around the corner from the train station makes this townhouse ideally situated. The townhouse is on a quiet residential block, however, there are many markets, restaurants, shops, etc., located just a few minutes walk away.

Great Stay!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Jason's was absolutely amazing! The apartment is as exactly as shown in the photos, lots of space, in a great neighbourhood. It's very convenient and fast to go to Manhattan, but there are also some very good restaurants and bars nearby. Oh, and you won't get lost, because Jason has for you a very useful book (He made it himself...and he knows the area), with all the local places.
The apartment is immaculately clean, with a good sized bathroom and a great shower. And the beds are very comfortable.
He was a great host, and always answered promptly.
Thanks a lot!!!

Pleasant and nice stay, good neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is very nice, clean and well maintained.The pictures are real. Complete kitchen including microwave and several spices/salt. Good towels and bed liners.The neighborhood is very good with laundries, markets, wine store, pharmacy and also small restaurants. Parkings are near and it is possible to find a place in the streets. Subway is just one and half blocks walk and takes 15 min to reach Manhattan. I was here for 10 days with my family with two boys, 16 and 13 . We loved the place, calm and safe. There is a very goog hamburguer (Bare Burguer) just 15 min walk from the property. We bought a 7days subway ticket for USD 31/person and could move for all Manhattan. It is also very easy to reach the Airport through the subway. If we go to NY again surely we will rent this apartment.

CONVENIENT, COMFORTABLE, SAFE AND SECURE.

  • 4 of 5
Property was exactly as described. Apartment was convenient to Subway, groceries stores, Laundromat etc..., all where within a 2-3 min walk. Owner very helpful, provided us with a folder of information, such as transport available, local attractions, restaurants, how to use stove etc. in the apartment and lots more to help us during our stay. Neighbourhood was very safe, felt comfortable to walk down the street of a night to supermarket. Apartment suitable for all types of travellers. We are a family of 4 from Australia including our two daughters who are 15yrs and 17 yrs who stayed in the apartment for 8 nights without any problems or concerns. Would recommend the unit as a great base to stay for those who don't want to be in the thick of the noise and traffic but yet be close enough to enjoy the many sights of New York or just get away for a few days. During our stay we bought a 7 day subway pass for each of us which costs $31 per adult. This enabled us to jump on and off all trains and buses at no extra cost, would recommend others to do the same. To get to and from JFK airport we used a taxi, which has a set fee no matter how long it takes you. Approx. $40-45 one way which takes about 25mins without traffic or up to 60mins in heavy traffic. No need to book a taxi when you arrive but best to book a taxi for your return trip. (Jessica the owner has put the taxi numbers in the folder of information) You can make phone calls from a pay phone which is 1 min walk away, 25cents (a quarter) for local calls and I could call home in Australia for 2mins for just $1. Jessica (the owner) offered good customer service and was willing to assist with any advise or help when we needed it. We only saw Jessica when we arrived so our privacy was respected however I chose to contact Jessica via email as needed since there was free Wi-Fi in the apartment!! Recommend this property to all who need accommodation close to New York City without the expensive hotel prices!!

Astoria is located in the New York City borough of Queens, just over the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge, also known as the 59th Street Bridge, which stretches over the East River from East Midtown Manhattan. This special neighborhood has a wonderful history, which includes being the location where Steinway & Sons, the finest piano company in the world, chose to build shop in 1853. The closest train station, named Steinway Street, where the M and R lines stop, is just a one minute walk from the apartment and will get you to East Midtown Manhattan in only 10 minutes. Astoria is a very lively area, which is heavily populated with restaurants, cafes, pastry shops, and has a vibrant nightlife. The Museum of Moving Image and Kaufman Studios is a 10 minute walk from the apartment. Also nearby are the Noguchi Museum, Socrates Sculpture Park, and the MoMA affiliated PS1 Museum.
