This beautiful neo-Georgian family home located in historic Jackson Heights, looks out onto the rear garden and onto other surrounding historic buildings. Beautifully styled with quality furniture, fully stocked kitchen, and gorgeous hardwood floors.
The cozy living room is full of natural light, beautiful plants and furnishings and is connected to a dining area and kitchen. Plenty of space for cooking and enjoying a meal at the modern farm style table.
One flight of stairs takes you to the two spacious and comfortable bedrooms! The master bedroom has tons of light and a luxurious queen platform style bed. The second bedroom is bright and beautiful also with a comfy queen platform style bed. There is also an office with a workspace, and is equipped with a single bed for an additional guest. There is one clean and bright bathroom with a large tub shower.
The neighborhood is safe and quiet. Please note the following: when a runway at La Guardia is undergoing construction or there is a harsh weather pattern, there will be additional noise. There is also a school nearby, so you can hear kids during school days. Finally, it is a 100-year-old house. You can hear your upstairs neighbors. Otherwise, noise is rare.
The neighborhood is diverse, the food is amazing, and the subway to Manhattan is fast. There is a Little Thailand, Chinatown, Little India, Little to mention Korean, Filipino, Mexican, and just about every other ethnicity in the neighborhood. There are also lovely amenities, such as cafes and bars with single malt beer. Just about everything for everyone.
We will leave information on the best restaurants. But cutting to the chase, there is no better Thai food outside of Thailand. And the Ecuadorian and Peruvian is amazing, as is Mexican.
The neighborhood is extremely diverse on all levels! Roosevelt Avenue is very lively with music and dancing all night. While it is lively, with lots of street vendors, it is among the 10 safest precincts in the city.
There are many modes of transit. We are 3 blocks from the 7 train, and (healthy) walking distance to the E, F, M, and R trains. It is about 20 minutes on the E or F train to get to Manhattan, and about 30 minutes on the local 7. Sometimes faster and sometimes slower. This does not include walking time to the train. Your time will vary based on your destination. Brooklyn takes at least 50 minutes, though.
There are lots of cabs and Uber and Lyft tend to be cheaper than yellow/green cabs.
There is express bus service, including to La Guardia and JFK.
To get here:
La Guardia: you can take a cab (about 7 minutes) or a bus (about 15 minutes). Backpackers can walk.
JFK: a cab will take about 20-30 minutes, and the E train will take about 30-45 minutes.+ More
