Über dieses Inserat
This apartment is half of a 1925 neo-georgian 2 family house in a historic district just a 20-30 minute subway ride to Manhattan. It has 2 bedrooms, one bath, a fireplace, vaulted ceilings. Historic Jackson Heights, is one of New York's attractions, mostly as a magnet for foodies. There are bars and cafes nearby, but the street we live on is quiet. The neighborhood is the most diverse in the country; about 150 languages; LGBT venues; every religion. It is lively, but one of the safest in NYC.
This apartment is 1 part of a 2 family neo-georgian home built in 1925. It looks out onto the rear garden and onto other historic buildings. It is adorned with quality furniture, hardwood floors, soft towels and sheets, organic shampoo and dish soap. The apartment is on the 3rd floor. There are stairs you have to walk up, however, so it is not great if you have bad knees.
Zugang für Gäste
You will have full access to a private loft apartment with a separate entryway. The stairs bypass our house altogether. But we are downstairs if you need us.

The neighborhood is safe and quiet. The only annoyance occurs when a runway at La Guardia is undergoing construction or there is a harsh weather pattern. Under those conditions, there is airplane noise, but otherwise noise is rare. There is also a school nearby, so you can hear kids during school days.

I used to be a journalist & editor of a Chinese magazine for over 8 years; now I am a author and artist based in Queens, New York. I just had my first book published last year, now I am working on my second. Writing and drawing is my way of exploring the world.
My husband and I travel together around the world, we are bicycle fans, we love music, films, food. Especially food, that`s why we chose to live in Jackson Heights, Queens rather than the Lower East Side, were we lived before.
Jackson Heights has more than 146 languages spoken. You can find all kind of food from all over the world, little India, Mexico, Ecuador, Chinatown..we find food in little Thailand even better than the real Thailand. believe me. This is a place worth exploring.
we are a 4 block walk to the 7 train, which takes about 25-30 mins to Manhattan. The E/F express train is a longer walk, but it takes only 20 mins to get to Manhattan. The N and M trains are also nearby.
Our house is in the historical area, we are one of the super beautiful 80 year-old historical buildings. We have a front yard and a flower garden, it is quiet and peaceful. After a whole day hustle in the city, this is where you can to take a long, nice bath, and wake up with the birds singing.
Our house is also our own ceramic studio, anyone who stay with us are welcomed to join us.
