The NeighborhoodWith its deep Irish roots, you'll understand why Woodside is home to NYC's second largest St. Patty's Day Parade outside of Manhattan. You'll find a plethora of Irish Pubs, bartenders with Irish Brogue accents, and authentic live Irish music within a few blocks of the apartment.
As the city has evolved over the years, families of all backgrounds have also made this charming neighborhood their home. This has led the neighborhood to become a destination of exquisite cuisines for NY's biggest foodies. Aside from Irish Pubs, also within a few blocks walk is every type of cuisine you could ask for, including Indian, Thai, Mexican, Cuban, and other Latin American foods, American Diners, Burgers, Crepes, Chinese, Tibetan, Vietnamese, Filipino, and obviously great NY Pizza! If you just want something you recognize, there's a McDonald's, Subway, and Dunkin' Donuts nearby as well.
A very safe family neighborhood, you'll enjoy leaving the noisy city to come home to the quiet streets of Woodside.
Also within a few blocks walk is a 24 hr grocery store, 24 hr Duane Reade drug store, early morning Italian Bakery, laundromat, and a coffee shop with comfy leather arm chairs. To see all of our favorite local eateries and shops, check out the listings on the map at the bottom of this page.
Getting AroundI call this the transportation nexus of the universe, because we have planes, trains, subways, taxis, and buses all only 5 min away, and street parking is free.
Arrival by Plane: Only 5 min and $15 by cab to Laguardia Airport or 30 min and $20 by train to JFK Airport, your arrival and departure in NYC could not be cheaper or easier, as staying in Manhattan would cost you $50-70 by taxi to/from either airport .
Bus: The Q70 bus goes directly to LaGuardia Airport in 20 min. Catch it at the intersection of 61st St and Roosevelt Avenue (under the Woodside subway/train station)
Subway & Train: Once here, you'll be 3 blocks from the Woodside station with the 7 express subway line, the Long Island Railroad, which makes access to John F. Kennedy International (JFK) airport a convenient 30 min away, and a number of bus lines. 5 blocks in the other direction is the R and M subway lines.
Taxi Cab: If you prefer to experience NYC in a taxi cab, Green Metered Taxis are always waiting at the Woodside Station.
Driving Your Own Car: We have free parking around our apartment, if you can believe it! This is not Manhattan, so the streets around our apartment do not have meters. Just be aware that street sweeping occurs during the week, so you'll need to pay attention to the signs on each street, and make sure to move your car the day the street sweepers come by. Other Things to NoteThe benefits of living close to an airport are that you can jet off very quickly, but unfortunately the city surrounds Laguardia Airport on all sides, and the airport must rotate flight paths between all the surrounding neighborhoods. This means that from time to time, we hear planes flying overhead during the daytime. Mostly, they only fly this path for one or two days at a time, although they never fly during the night when the airport is closed. So, while it is unlikely to occur during your stay, it is possible that you may have daytime plane noise during your stay. We apologize if this happens. However, this is one reason why we are able to offer such affordable prices. Plus, you will most likely be out visiting the city during the daytime anyways.
