Come stay in historic Jackson Heights! Beautiful historic landmark homes and buildings, plants and trees everywhere, and close to the subway (40 min. to midtown, 15 with Uber). My building is filled with families, and it's very safe. My apartment is cozy and fun and a total oasis. Wireless available, cable TV, laundry in building (not the nicest laundry room in the world, but better than nothing), full kitchen (no dish washer, sorry), clean and close to convenience stores and grocery stores.
Take the E train toward Manhattan. Get off at Roosevelt Avenue and transfer to the Flushing bound 7 train. Take that 2 stops to 90th Street. Walk 3 blocks to 34-19 90th Street.
