Honestly, I think Queens, New York is a bit underrated and misinterpreted. Queens, found on Long Island, is located in a pretty sweet spot. You’re still close enough to Manhattan to take advantage of all that New York City has to offer (just a quick subway ride away), but you’re still on Long Island making trips east to beautiful towns and beaches like Port Jefferson, Fire Island, and Montauk just a drive or train ride away! Queens is also home to major attractions like the US Open Venue (Flushing Meadows), MoMA PS1, the Queens Botanical Garden, the Worlds Fair Monument and more! Check out one these awesome Airbnbs to make your visit to Queens better.
This contemporary apartment is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood, yet still close to public transportation stops and access points to major highways. While you have complete access to all the apartment has to offer (one bedroom, modern appliances, great location), your hosts also graciously provide you with some cool perks like unlimited tea and coffee, cable TV, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime, and so much more!
