Apartment, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Queen Tempur-Pedic Beds, Sofa Bed, Queen Air Mattress

Welcome to this beautiful, spacious, modern two-bedroom apartment, located just around the corner from the train station, which is only a 1 minute walk away. From there, it takes only 10 minutes to reach Manhattan by train.

The spacious living room has a modern sofa, which turns into a bed for one. There is also a classic Pierre Paulin lounge chair, modern walnut coffee table, and a set of ottomans. The large flat-screen television with satellite tv sits on a beautiful solid walnut media cabinet. There is also a George Nelson wall lamp and modern floor lamp in the living room.

The kitchen is equipped with all pots, pans, and utensils needed to cook a meal. The kitchen opens up to a dining room, which has a modern solid walnut dining table and chairs. There is a full bathroom in this apartment.

The main bedroom is located at the rear of the townhouse, where the garden is located, ensuring a peaceful night. This bedroom has a queen size Tempur-Pedic bed, which sits atop a modern solid walnut Japanese style bed. There are also walnut side tables and two modern lamps.

The second bedroom is also located at the rear of the townhouse and has a queen Tempur-Pedic bed, which sits on a modern solid walnut bed and is accompanied by walnut side tables and modern lamps. There is a door in this bedroom that opens up to the private balcony, which is wonderful for catching sun and fresh air. It overlooks the garden. There are two chairs and a table on the balcony.

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 to help you with your planning, which includes details such as an extensive list of restaurants in the area, many nearby markets, and a map of the area with key points.

About Jason Riggs

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

Why Jason Riggs chose Queens

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

Spacious and perfect for easy access to Manhattan

  • 5 of 5
This apartment was comfortable and exactly what we needed to enjoy a week in the NY City area. The Temperpedic queen beds were great, the landlords were extremely helpful and responsive, from the moment I first emailed to ask questions to when they met us at 1am after our flight arrived at JFK, and they refunded our damage deposit within a couple of days after we checked out. The neighborhood is a good one, in Astoria (near Long Island City) just three subways stops from midtown Manhattan on the Steinway line. We could get to Manhattan in about 15 minutes, depending on where we were going, although it took closer to 40 minutes to get to the 9/11 Museum area. The subway entrance is only about a block away and you have no trouble unless it is getting close to midnight--then you better figure which trains run that late and where to get them or take a taxi. I liked that there are shops and restaurants nearby and you feel safe, even quite late at night. The balcony was a nice touch for getting air and watching the sun set (it's off one of the two bedrooms). One thing we misunderstood is that there are several ways to connect to internet, through their wifi modem and also through satellite. Read their binder carefully and realize you have more than one way to get service. Overall I can't say enough about how comfortable we were (two couples traveling together). We could have accommodated more people using the sofa and they also have an aero bed. I should also mention that the air conditioners worked well on the hot days; we didn't need them when the weather got cooler. I highly recommend this unit.

Excellent place!

  • 5 of 5
This is the second time my family and I stay at this place and it's great. The apartment is not only spacious, very comfortable and pleasant, but it's incredibly convenient to shops, restaurants and half a block away from the subway. The tenants are great and very helpful. I definitely recommend it!

The Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5
As a previous reviewer mentioned, when you seek a property sight unseen, you look for cleanliness and location. Add to that a responsive landlord and an extremely safe location, then you have this great Astoria property. With its close location to the Steinway station for adventures into Manhattan, while providing a quiet reprieve from the daily hustle and hustle, this becomes the perfect retreat. Thank you Jessica and Jason for sharing your home with us. We had a great time and look forward to a return stay in the very near future.

Comfortable Apartment in a Great Location!

  • 5 of 5
We recently rented this apartment for three nights in September since we were looking for a more spacious and economical alternative to the tiny and extremely expensive hotel rooms in Manhattan. It turned out to be everything we expected and served as a very convenient location for our days of sightseeing in Manhattan. As advertised, there is ample free street parking right in front of the building that served our needs perfectly since our intent was to park our car for the duration of our stay and use the subway system to get to Manhattan destinations. One of the real advantages of this location is the fact that the Steinway subway station that serves the “R” and “M” lines is literally a half-block around the corner from the apartment. We could get to midtown Manhattan in about 15 minutes and down to Battery Park at the southern tip of the island in about 30 minutes.

The furnishings in the home are attractive and comfortable, and the kitchen is stocked with a wide variety of plates, glasses, cutlery, serving dishes, pots and pans, and other cooking accessories. The apartment is well maintained in a quiet neighborhood, and we always felt safe there, even when we returned from the city late at night. Free wireless Internet service is included in the rental price, and we found this to be a very useful feature as we planned activities in the city during our stay. There are several shops and small take-out restaurants within easy walking distance just a block or two from the building.

We were impressed with the prompt and detailed communications from the owner before, during, and after our stay. We arrived at the apartment a few hours before our scheduled check-in time, but the owner met us there at a time that matched our schedule and allowed us to store our luggage in the apartment before we headed to the city for some sightseeing. We were grateful for this extra courtesy. Our security deposit was returned to us just a day or two after our stay.

We enjoyed our experience at this apartment in Queens/Astoria, and we were very pleased that we had selected this as our base of operations for three days of sightseeing in Manhattan. We highly recommend this apartment to any couple, small family, or group of friends who are looking for a comfortable and well-equipped apartment that is located very close to a subway station, shops, and take-out restaurants. If we visit NYC again, we will definitely stay at this apartment.

Little Gem in Astoria!

  • 5 of 5
The main priorities when staying in a vacation apartment are comfort, cleanliness and location. I can attest to the fact that Jessica's Astoria apartment met each criteria with flying colors! The immaculate apartment had more than enough room for my wife, daughter and sister-in-law. The therapeutic beds made for a wonderful sleep - after a day of pounding the streets and subways. On that last note, it was great to get to our station within five minutes of walking. The tree lined streets are part of a neighborhood in which we felt safe walking around regardless of the time of day or night. The pictures, by the way, are an accurate description of the layout of the apartment. I look forward to booking our stay with her again next summer. Many thanks, Jessica, for allowing us to enjoy our stay in your wonderful apartment!

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.
