Astoria is an amazing vibrant neighborhood, extremely safe, filled with lots of cultures, incredible restaurants (Greek, Brazilian, Italian, French, Thai - really everything), lounges and clubs. Much like Manhattan, Astoria is really a 24 hour neighborhood - everything is always open with 24 hr grocery store & pharmacy are just around the corner. The subway is 4 blocks away, a 5 minute walk. And then just 10 minute subway ride (3 stops) to the city center, Lexington Avenue.
Very safe neighborhood, we are on a quiet side street, one block from Broadway, the main drag. Subway is a few blocks away, and safe to walk from anytime of night. Just 3 stops to midtown, 59th Street in Manhattan. Easy to catch a cab on the corner as well. Plenty of street parking, we park our Audi on the street every night.
The Noguchi Museum and Socrates Park, along the East River, with beach access and views of Manhattan are just 5 blocks walking. The Museum of Moving Image is also walking distance, and PS1 MoMa Museum is a quick subway hop away.
The Subway (N/Q) at the Broadway station is 5 min away walking, and runs 24 hours. You can be at 59th Street midtown Bloomingdales in 15 minutes - to Times Square in 20 min, Central Park in 25 min.
LGA airport is 12 min driving; and JFK airport is 25 mins away driving, or you can take the subway. Newark airport is a little more of a trek to go to our house.

We will not accept animals, please don't ask, the answer is 100% no. After allowing 3 different guests with dogs, all of which promised their dogs were housebroken, and all 3 dogs were not housebroken, we unfortunately have to say no now. We love dogs, so it's a bummer!

You can call or text us anytime during your stay, if you are lost, looking for a good restaurant, or just need help / advice on anything. We are here to make your trip to NYC be lovely, and we are happy to play concierge for you!
If at anytime you have any issues with anything in the apartment please notify us, the hosts, right away. If we don't know about the problem, we can't fix it! If it's too hot or too cold, please say something! We have fans, heaters, air conditioners, extra blankets, everything, just ask.
This is New York City, so quarters are tight. If you want a huge bedroom, with a grand private bathroom, you should look into a $600 a night hotel room. The apartment is 950 square feet total, and the pictures show the space. It is not a sprawling house in the country side. This is compact apartment living. Our apartment is on the medium side for New York City standards, but if you are coming from a suburban home, this apartment will feel small, so don't be surprised.
