About Dan

I serve NYC as a psychotherapist at the oldest social service agency in the USA, my wife works in advertising.

Dan purchased this house in 2007

Why Dan chose Woodside

Only a few minutes on a train and you are in Manhattan… but if you need to escape back to a more remote locale, we have your spot!

What makes this house unique

Just steps away from the best Thai food in NYC, many Irish pubs in walking distance, coffee shops, groceries etc….

and don't forget the easy commute to NYC… oh plus we are an 8 minute drive to LGA!

Guestbook comments from the owner

If you are looking for a larger property then I would highly recommend this townhouse, the owners were very helpful leading up to our stay and on arrival the property presented very well. Super Mike who lives onsite was very helpful and easy to contact. The property was about 10 mins sub ride into Time Sqaure and was easy to do. If you want to get out of the rat race of the center of New york then stay here, close to all shops, pubs, coffee shops etc.

Great Apartment in a safe neighborhood in Queens

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family spent 6 nights here. The apartment was comfortable, clean, and roomy enough for 7 adults. It’s also located very close to the subway (about 5 minute walk) where the 7 train takes you right into Grand Cental Station. We returned to the apartment pretty late every evening and always felt very safe walking to and from the subway station. There are lots of great restaurants, pubs, and a fantastic craft beer bar within a 3 minute walk as well. Dan and Grace were wonderful hosts, quick to respond to our inquiries, and very helpful. We loved spending the week in their apartment in Queens and highly recommend It to anyone who wants to enjoy the city but leave behind the noise and traffic, and retreat to a quite and relaxing space. We will definitely stay here again!

Affordable apartment in safe location

  • 4 of 5

The booking and all communication with Dan was really good, before and during our stay all questions were answered kindly within a few hours or even minutes. We could also leave some luggage there after checking out on the last day. So thank you for that!

From the pictures it looks like the apartment is much bigger than it really is, that is because there is an apartment next door and underneath that are also shown in the pictures. Also, the apartment does not look as newly as in the pictures. Especially if you come from Germany, it might not reach your expectations of living. We were a young group, who have all lived in the states for some time and were used to that but it could be unusual for someone used to European standard. We booked the place for 8 adults, where there is room for. In the end, two of us couldn't come so we were only six adults and I have to say, that 6 is a good number because the apartment was not as big as expected. We were also thinking, that one cleaning during half the stay would be nice (we stayed 11 days).

The location in Queens is very safe. The neighbourhood is nice and all groceries can be found close by, also the subway station is a 5 minute walk. Into Manhattan it takes about 20 minutes (to Grand Central) from where you can change to all other subwaylines.

Great Location and very helpful hosts

  • 5 of 5

We are very thankful to have found Dan & Grace's Apartment, which has met all our needs in terms of being closed to public transport to places we wanted to go, to central city, shopping, eating facilities etc...

Many thanks to Dan & Grace for sharing their accommodation with us. We did have a very memoriable time in New York, especially in the Queen Borough.

Convenient Spacious 3 BR Rental

  • 5 of 5

This rental was spacious enough to let our large family of nine all sleep comfortably, with 2 bathrooms as an added bonus. The hosts were very helpful with suggestions on restaurants and, when we thought we might need to take one of our kids to the ER, hospital recommendations. We enjoyed the many ethnic restaurants in Woodside and the nice walkable streets here. The subway and Long Island Railroad were very close and made it convenient to get around, including getting to the Newark Airport. We would stay here again when we visit New York City.

Nearest Airport
5 Kilometres

Grand central station 10-20 by subway - (depends where you go); 59th and Lexington is 10 minute; 42nd St. Time square 15 minutes; 8-minute ride exactly on commuter rail/LIRR straight shoot no stopping to Penn station Manhattan; Short walk to mass transit. I have been commuting all my life to Manhattan, trust me for the money you save, it really is not hard. Also it is mostly above ground so there is a lot to see and it goes much faster than being in a tunnel. And it's more fun to spend money on other things. Close to central park and fifth avenue and all the attractions.
