Tthis beautiful, modern, high design, one-bedroom garden apartment is located in Astoria, New York City. The apartment was designed to provide you with comfort and happiness. You will be surrounded with high quality, ultra modern and mid-century modern furniture and fixtures. At about 750 square feet, the apartment takes up the entire floor of the townhouse.

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.

The townhouse has a wonderful garden area, which is a rare luxury to have here in New York City. 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.

The owners of this property were very accommodating to us during our stay. Offering extra immenities as we requested. We were given lots of contact information on where to go and locations for restaurants. Loved the Spanish restaurant at the corner of Broadway and 41st. street. lots of choices to choose from, great shopping immenities in the immediate Stienway area. Easy acces to subway and bus transportation. Several grocery stores drug stores for necessities. The apartment was grand for a New York resident. Extremely comfortable King size bed, large closet area that included mulitiple drawer space. AC units for the hot weather. A lovely garden to enjoy eating out or barbecueing. The six jet shower and overhead rain sprayer were the perfect culmination to a day of sightseeing, visiting family or just plain trying to relax. The kitchen provides a european flare that makes any cook feel like a Bobby Flay chef. This property has so much to offer even the queen blowup is a Temperpedic bed, great for any additional guest. This is the be all and end all rental property for a very busy yet relaxation haven for a New York minute vacation.

this apartment was great. Jessica was very helpful and accommodating. The neighborhood is great. Eclectic with convenient places for meals of all types. Good access to Manhattan, the subway is close.
One caveat, if you have car, parking is limited with alternate side parking and not much available. In summer it would not be a problem walking a few blocks after finding a parking place, but in winter.....

Wow! What a great apartment, and what made even better is was only a 10 minute walk to my son's apartment! Everything we needed was there, the bed was comfortable and did not want to get out of the shower! We only stayed 2 nights, next time we will stay longer! The owners were accessible, very helpful and friendly. I would give it more stars if they had them! The location was terrific with lots of places to eat and shop. The neighborhood was quiet, peaceful and well located.

Good location close to subway. Friendly landlord and clean apartment. Confortable bed. Street parking is not great, but a place can be found if you keeplooking around the block.

We stayed in this apartment for five days while visiting our daughter in Queens. The apartment is just as pictured, modern, clean and with beautiful design features. Jessica was very accomodating and helpful. The bed was indeed very comfortable and the bath was super gorgeous. The area was safe and quiet and with the nearby subway a short trip into Manhattan. And coffee and croissants at Hickshaw down the
street was welcome in the morning (if you prefer to go out). All in all a good stay.

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.
