Why Jason Riggs chose Queens
The apartment is located in my townhouse in Astoria, Queens, New York City. I love it here in Astoria, as it is so welcoming and there is always something to do here. The townhouse is located just around the corner from the train station and only 10 minutes by train to reach Manhattan, so it is very conveniently located. The townhouse is also in perhaps one of the safest areas in New York City, as it is predominantly families and young professionals who live here in Astoria.
What makes this apartment unique
The townhouse has a wonderful garden area, which is a rare luxury to have here in New York City. Located just around the corner from the train station makes this townhouse ideally situated. The townhouse is on a quiet residential block, however, there are many markets, restaurants, shops, etc., located just a few minutes walk away.
