Overview

Long Island City Apartment Rental Photos and Description

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

The Two-Bedroom Balcony Apartment is located just around the corner from the subway station, which is only a 1 minute walk away. From there, it takes only 10 minutes to reach Manhattan by subway.

The apartment is large in size, as it is about 850 square feet. There are modern furniture and fixtures throughout. There is also a private balcony.

The spacious living room has a modern sectional sofa (not pictured, as we recently added the sectional -- new photos to come). There is also a smaller sofa (pictured) which turns into a daybed 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 mid-century modern NYC style 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.

For the fifth and sixth guests, the sectional sofa converts into a queen size bed -- it splits into two pieces, and when facing the two pieces towards each other, they form a queen size bed. Alternatively, there is a queen size air mattress with memory foam top.

We have a pack 'n play (playard) for baby, available upon request.

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. This booklet will help to immediately get you familiar with the area.

Terrific Stay in NYC

  • 5 of 5

Renting any of Jessica's properties is a great deal! Jessica answers her phone and is available to answer any questions you may have, and she is onsite to help in anyway needed. This apartment is spacious, clean, and comfortable. It is minutes from the M and R trains that take you to midtown in 10 to 15 minutes. The neighborhood is safe and quiet compared to Manhattan but still offers shopping and quality restaurants. One other important reason to rent from Jessica is that she returned our security deposit within two days of leaving her property! She is an honest and kind landlord which is hard to find in the sea of NYC vacation rentals.

Jessica was so nice with us. The apartment is great, very spacious, clean and comfortable. The location is perfect, just 1.5 block from the Metro and 12 minutes to Manhattan!

I'm sure we will be back soon!

Excellent Location

  • 5 of 5

Apartment location was perfectly located, a minute from the subway, around the corner from a 24 hour laundry-mat and a 24 hour Rite-Aid, also endless shopping and dining a block away. Nice, quiet neighborhood...recommend it to anyone looking to explore NYC but not with the NYC price tag!!

great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

my family and i truly enjoyed our stay at this apartment! everything about it made our visit to nyc pleasant. we went to nyc to find our daughter an apartment as she will be starting a job there in july. we only had three days to do this, so our two night stay was very short. when i was looking into a vrbo, this apartment popped up and the only two nights it was open were the two we would be there. i figured that was fate! so i read the reviews and decided to book it! it was nice to stay in a home and get away from the hustle and bustle of the BUSY city! jessica was very helpful and available when we needed her! with the subway so close it made out travels in nyc very convenient! the apartment was very clean and beds were very comfortable! thank you jessica, for sharing your home with us!

Excellent location, price and accommodations for our needs

  • 4 of 5

Two of us family members had to return to the area multiple times, from out of state, due to a death in the family. The excellent location, price and accommodations were perfect for our needs and we stayed there twice. The apartment was basic (two bedrooms, kitchen, dining table, living room, bathroom), clean and the beds comfortable. We did not use the kitchen but it had the necessary equipment and supplies. It is on the second floor, with no elevator, so luggage has to be hauled up the stairs. Not a problem for us but may be for older persons or those with limited mobility. The wifi was difficult to access but there is a nice binder with great information. The owners are accommodating, communicative and trustworthy in returning the damage deposit. Parking is a challenge so if you can have no car, or a smaller car, it would be better. All in all a very positive apartment rental experience. Thank you Jason and Jessica!

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.
