My parent's wonderful home is located in East Elmhurst, NY. It's in a very calm neighborhood a block away from the bus stop and a shopping center. You can get to Times Square thru public transportation in less than an hour with relative ease. LaGuardia airport is 8 minutes away and JFK airport is 20-30 minutes away. You have access to major highways and you are only 15 minutes away from Brooklyn, Bronx, and Manhattan making it a great place to stay while visiting.
