This stylish 1 bedroom Artist Loft is located in Long Island City, Queens: the intersection of hip and new!

Architecturally designed, this gorgeous one bedroom artist loft includes white bamboo flooring, hand stained oak doors, recessed lighting, custom oversized windows, and original artwork. The loft is attractively furnished with an eclectic mix of Asian carpets and vibrant textiles. There is a queen size bed and a queen size fold out sleep sofa; the glass-tiled bathroom has a shower and tub. Amenities include WiFi, air conditioning, flat screen TV with basic cable, microwave, coffee-maker, ceiling fan, all linens and a fully equipped kitchen. It is located one flight up from the street. Smoking is not permitted

Long Island City is one of New York's newest up and coming neighborhoods; it has hipster cafes, ethnic restaurants and art galleries right next to old world Italian restaurants. This is the place for gourmet eating with many young chefs setting up shop here! One particularly great local restaurant is Tournesol, a neighborhood fixture, owned and operated by a family from south west France. Also of note are two Michelin starred restaurants: Case Enrique and M. Wells Steakhouse, and two Michelin “Bib Gourmand” picks. For art lovers, PS 1/MoMa Contemporary Art Center, the Noguchi Museum, and Sculpture Center are all near.

You can walk to nearby hipster Brooklyn (Greenpoint and Williamsburg) or for more fun, take the East River Ferry to different parts of Brooklyn and Wall Street from nearby Gantry State Park, that also has a stunning running track along the river. There are also excellent yoga, fitness, and cycle studios, and a CitiBike station minutes from the loft.

About David

We are two artists, one American painter and one British sculptor, who are avid world travelers ourselves (India, Italy and South East Asia are our favorite destinations!) and enjoy sharing our passionate love of New York with visitors. 'See the Real New York' is our motto! As a result, we offer real 'insider' tips to the best art galleries, museum shows and other events currently on view. As real 'foodies' and 'locavores' we can direct you to the best eats for the best price, from Farmer's Markets to 5 star restaurants, especially in our great Long Island City neighborhood. We personally renovated this apartment with love and sweat and an eye for design, elegance and charm.

David purchased this apartment in 2001

Why David chose Hunters Point

This is the CLEANEST place you will reserve!! We absolutely love Queens, Long Island City where this loft is located. You are in Manhattan in five minutes by subway or you can stay in the neighborhood, enjoy the countless hipster restaurants, art galleries, walk along the East River Park and see the glorious Manhattan skyline, or take the bus five minutes to ultra chill Greenpoint or Williamsburg Brooklyn for even more art galleries, restaurants, etc. The building is on a lovely, tree-lined quiet block. The subway is a one minute walk from the apartment.

What makes this apartment unique

Stay where its all happening!

The location is superb for Manhattan, Queens and Brooklyn. All can be accessed by subway ( 1 minute walk from the Loft.) or, bus , too!

Excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The location of this lovely apartment was perfect for us, as a short stroll to the end of the street gave us breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline. Plenty of great restaurants within easy walking distance and the subway was just minutes away. The apartment was clean, spacious and had everything we needed for our stay. Our hosts made check in easy and supplied us with many suggestions and all the information we needed to get around New York. A most enjoyable stay, and would definitely stay there again on our next visit to New York. Thanks again to Margaret for all her help.

  • 5 of 5

Recommended by a friend in Sydney. Quiet neighbourhood( compared to Manhatten). Close to subway, one stop to Manhatten. The local ammenities perfect, laundry, French restaurant, Mexican restaurant, literally around corner. Cafe 51 every morning for coffee.Gantry Park 2 blocks flat walk, spectacular views of Manhatten. Apartment cosy and comfy. Only complaint is TV reception dodgy.

Just a dream!!! Nicole G

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the apartment for 1 month. I really felt as at home. Margaret gave us so many precious informations: nearby restaurants, museums, help for every day life and everything was made so that we could just enjoy our holidays! We are art lovers: soon we were in the entrance hall, we were welcomed by authentic art paintings. And all the decoration is full of personality and good taste! 2 minutes from the subway which drives us to the center of Manhattan. Nice and safe neighborhood. If we come to NYC we'll definitely stay by Margaret's and David's apartment! Thank you so much Margaret and David: you are perfect hosts!

Awesome Stay, Great location

  • 5 of 5

The building is in a wonderful location for a visit to New York. The loft was beautiful and well maintained. Super close to the subway and quite a few good restaurants nearby. David and Margaret are perfect hosts who are willing to help make a good trip into an amazing one. Absolutely nothing to complain about from me. Thanks again!

Perfect place in a lovely neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay and the apartment! It's really clean, with all the basic equipments, nice decor and spacious (it was me and my mom). I was surprised with the location, it was the best I got in NYC so far (it's my third time here). The neighborhood is lovely, with a nice view of Manhattan's skyline, great restaurants and a nice park just a few blocks away. The subway station is literally around the corner and we took no more than 10 minutes to get to Manhattan. The comunication with Margaret and Joyce was super easy and they made us feel very welcomed. I highly recomend Margaret's place and I'll definetely stay here again :)

Most convenient location to Manhattan off Manhattan

  • 5 of 5

The loft is perfectly located to enjoy both Manhattan, with Grand Central reachable within 10 minutes, and the relaxed and safe neighborhood feel of Long Island City, with great views of the skyline one block away. It is fully equipped and newly renovated, and felt like home even as we stayed only one week. The owners answered all our queries promptly and professionally. We would not hesitate to stay again, and we look forward indeed to our next visit, which we hope may be even longer!
