We love our new home and you'll like this spacious 2 bedroom apartment as well: it is fully renovated, 7mn from the R/M subway (63rd drive stop) in a safe and quiet neighborhood.
It's a great way to find an affordable and comfortable place to stay and still be 30-35mn from Midtown Manhattan. You're also a 15-20mn walk from Austin street in Forrest Hills.
Plenty of grocery stores and a mall (Rego Center) within a 5mn walk.
And an experienced host (and traveler) that knows how this thing works!
