Emil is a lovely guy who has lived in Queens for about 25 years, and is very knowledgeable about the area. His home is warm and welcoming, and he made tasty breakfasts for us, having asked us about our dietary requirements.
My husband and I stayed in Emil's place for 4 nights. He was very kind and hospitable. He loves traveling and we talked about our travel experiences while having breakfast he made for us. He gave us a lot of recommendations in New York City and it was helpful. Thank you for everything!
