This three bedroom apartment looks pretty nice, especially since it’s got more than enough space for your entire family. This full floor place is in a three story brick building with two full bathrooms, including one in the master bedroom. It’s one block away from the Northern Boulevard N and R subway stop, so it’s not such a long ride into Manhattan. The address is given as 55th Street beween Northern Boulevard and 32nd Avenue (GMAP) the block is residential, and the surrounding area is home to big-box stores and supermarkets, if you are into shopping. Apparently there is easy street parking in the neighborhood and you can have pets. Landlady Irena is looking for $2375 for this apartment, but maybe you can talk her down? Her number is (917) 582-3513 according to this post.

Excuse us while we swoon over this Victorian at 85-12 110th Street, in Richmond Hill. The facade looks to be in excellent shape, and who wouldn’t want a house with a wraparound front porch?
