5-19 Borden Ave., #2A, Long Island City, NY 11101 (GMAP) - This 2 bed/2 bath condo in the Murano building is priced at $895,000. Some of the sweet aspects of this unit include north and west exposures, a 98 square foot balcony, and this soaking tub in the bathroom. The Murano is also a “green building,” with the use of eco-friendly building materials and energy efficient appliances. The building is convenient to the Vernon-Jackson 7 stop on the subway (one stop from Grand Central), the Hunters Point LIRR, and the East River Ferry. It is also close to the LIE and the Queens Midtown Tunnel.

This week Nancy Ruhling wrote about a hidden Victorian house in Astoria for her “Astoria Characters” column in the Huffington Post and we really couldn’t get enough of this story. It’s not right there on the street, but is behind a commercial business – Teddy’s Florist – on 31st Street near the Ditmars N/Q subway station in Astoria. You can see it from the Ditmars platform, though, but even then it is hidden – not may people look for it (though after the attention it’s gotten, that will likely change).

2-26-50th-ave-7i-long-island-city-queens

2-26 50th Ave, #7I, Long Island City, NY 11101 (GMAP) - This 1 bed/1 bath condo at The Yard in LIC is priced at $650,000. One of the thoughtful elements in the building is the use of reclaimed wood from old rail yards, used in the building’s lobby. There is also art hung in the building’s hallways. The kitchen is small but upscale stainless steel appliances are installed. Other amenities include an entertainment room, outdoor garden that includes hopscotch, swings and a see-saw, and a landscaped roof deck with barbecue pits. The location is about equidistant between the Vernon-Jackson 7 subway station (just one stop to Grand Central) and the Hunters Point East River Ferry dock. Gantry Park is also just a block away.
