This apartment is located in a safe, residential neighborhood in Western Queens, close to the East River. We are a short walking distance from Astoria Park with its spectacular views of Manhattan and Randal's Island, an Olympic-size swimming pool, a running track, playground, dog walk, grassy fields and summer concert series. Astoria is noted for its plethora of destination restaurants, cafes, and interesting ethnic markets. Sparrow Tavern, the Bohemian Beer Hall, the Let Love Inn are a stones throw away, and arguably the best place in NYC to get bagels is within 2 blocks of this apartment (people stop on the way to Laguardia to pick up a dozen). The neighborhood people are a wonderful mix of new immigrants from every corner of the world, old Greek people :), artists, writers, performers, regular working folk, and their families. It's a great place to live, or visit.

The N and W trains to Manhattan are located two blocks away on 31st Street and Ditmars Blvd. It is a 20 min. ride to Manhattan (Lexington and 59th Street) from there. Trains run all day/night. The M60 bus to Laguardia Airport (east) and Harlem 125th (west) is also two blocks away at Astoria Blvd and 31st Street. If you need us to call for a car service to take you to the airport, or train station, please let us know.

This space is not available for film/commercial shoots. Really.

In general, we expect our guests to behave in a manner suitable for respectful cohabitation. As with any apartment, neighbors are aware of each other--you'll hear us, and we'll hear you. We also expect the apartment and property to be treated with care. This is a 'NO SMOKING (PAS DE FUMER)' apartment. If you smoke, step out onto the balcony. This is also not a place to hold a huge, loud party. The place is decorated with family antiques that need a bit of consideration, just like any old thing. And, the neighbors will complain in true New York style--not kidding about this. :)

Excellent location, near the subway. The place was very spacious and well maintained. Our host was kind enough to leave us some snacks and drinks. She was also kind enough to hold our bags on our last day so we could continue exploring NYC without extra baggage. Overall a great experience!

We had a wonderful stay at Anastasia's place. It is in a great location (right around the corner from the Bohemian Beer Garden) and has everything you need for a short or extended stay, including a coffee maker, a well appointed kitchen, powerful air conditioning in every room, and multiple laundry spots right around the corner. The apartment is really spacious and has a separate kitchen and a comfortable living room with multiple couches and a dining table and chairs. Anastasia was quick to respond to all of our questions and was a pleasure to work with. We can't wait to come back!

I highly recommend Anastasia's place. The location was excellent, the space was clean and very inviting, and communication was excellent throughout my stay. The host responded quickly to questions and requests (for an additional fan during the hot weather as well as general questions). If you are looking for a home base for trips to Manhattan or within Queens, this is a strong choice.

My husband and I have lived and worked in New York for over twenty years. We love Astoria for its 'old New York' neighborhood qualities, funky restaurants and cafes, and easy access to all points on the map.
