Our apartment is located in Long Island City, NY 11101 where the building faces the East River and Gantry State Park. At the hub, around the corner on Vernon Blvd. is a vibrant restaurant district that is only 5 minutes from Times Square via 7 train subway station three blocks away.

The new 12-acre Gantry Plaza State Park stretches along the East River waterfront with amazing facilities: 3 toddler playgrounds with sprinklers, basketball and handball courts, a sandy beach volley ball courts, a soccer field, restaurants, running and bike paths, fishing piers, and a public library (opening in 2017). From here you can experience the absolute best view of the Manhattan skyline and take the East River Ferry to trendy Williamsburg, the Brooklyn Bridge Park, and midtown/lower Manhattan. This key NYC transportation hub links Manhattan, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Queens, JFK and LaGuardia airports, and Long Island beaches by train, subway, bus, bicycle, and car.

Long Island City has emerged from a historically industrial neighborhood in the 1990s. It was discovered by artists who turned the industrial spaces into workshops and lofts and then by developers who have made it into one of the more fashionable places to rent and buy. One of the safest neighborhoods in all of NYC.

Our Wondeful Week

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to stay! Where to begin?? Well firstly the apartment looks gorgeous, the moment you open the door....wow! Everything was provided, Dahlia even left a lovely notebook so that we could record our memories, so kind. Some food had even been thoughtfully provided. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and the beds very comfortable. Just across the road ( literally ) there is a supermarket and a pharmacy. Public transport is only a very short stroll away. In all honesty I have to say that we would definately stay there again, without hesitation. Dahlia was extremely easy to deal with, I even called her on the way to the apartment to get directions for the taxi driver!! And as a nice touch , Mervin called and made sure we were happy with everything. An overall fabulous experience!!!

Great location, perfect size rental

  • 4 of 5

Apartment was perfect size for us. The neighborhood was safe & quiet. It was only 4 blocks to the subway which was perfect as we were doing the holiday tourist thing. We got the unlimited pass & were good to go for the 5 days we were there. There are some cute restaurants within blocks but didn’t show up on yelp & we didn’t notice until we walked down to the park on the water the last day-so it was too late to enjoy. The grocery store across the street was very convenient to get a few things to have at the apartment. They have a great salad, pasta, hot plate area, much like Whole Foods and it was yummy!

Wireless was a little weak. TV had plenty of stations, so no lacking there.

I would definitely stay there again. Cab or Uber from LGA was about $26 just FYI.

Owner was very quick at answering questions before & during stay.

Wonderful Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo accommodated my family of five comfortably. The location was convenient to NYC and walking distance to the train. Very good restaurants within walking distance. Great location and there were nights we came in late and felt safe walking home.

Safe and spacious

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, big enough for our party of 5, close to the subway and city attractions, and safe. What helped us decide on this place was Dahlia - she was responsive to messages, and made this really easy for us. We also loved having that great grocery store just right across the street.

Great apartment deserves six star rating but they only gave me 5 to work with

  • 5 of 5

First trip to NYC so I didn't really know what to expect. And it was the first time I had used this site to find somewhere to stay. This was business as we were installing an LED video board in a building in Manhattan on 44 and 6th.

This turned out to be one of the best decision I have ever made concerning accommodations. The apartment was just like the pictures I viewed on the web site. Clean and comfortable / the size of the apartment at 1,250 sq feet was just right. Nice furniture and very clean.

The view was great but for me the number one rating goes to HOT WATER / GREAT BED AND PILLOWS AND WASHER/DRYER.

Because it is located in more of a residential section there wasn't any noise like you get in the city. Short walk to the subway / short ride on the subway and you will find yourself in time square.

Dahlia was always there by phone to answer any question I had. Delightful person. If you book this property you won't regret it.

I have never written a report on anywhere I have ever stayed. So this is a first for me. But the property deserves a 5 star ratting so I took the time to give it one.

PS. if you need and LED video board go to www.firstteamvideo.com call me

It is a good place to stay for a few days

  • 4 of 5

The apartment building has a pool and gym, but not for guests, only for the owner.

Owner's Response: For security purposes, a new regulation in the building is fingerprint access into all the amenities rather than a fob key. As a result, I’ve changed the listing to reflect that. I hope to accommodate you again.
