Our Home in Flushing, N.Y., USA

Our home is a side hall colonial frame house built in 1929. We have lived here since 1968 and have renovated twice. We have three bathrooms and five bedrooms, two kitchens, living room with fireplace, formal dining room, side and back porches.The rooms are on four floors of our home
We are a 10 minute walk from the "Broadway" Long Island Rail Road station. The LIRR is a 23 minute trip to Penn Station in Manhattan. Trains leave from that station every 30 min during rush hour and once an hour otherwise, almost the entire 24 hours a day.The LIRR is not part of the MTA system of subways and buses.
Public transportation on the buses and subways to and from our home with costs and schedules can be found at this site:
http://www.mta.info/
We are a one minute walk from the Q26 and Q27 buses which will take you to Main Street and the "7" subway train. That route will take about 45 minutes but is less expensive than the LIRR, there are unlimited week long passes, and it also has the advantage of taking you more exactly where in Manhattan you wish to go as you will then have access to all the trains and buses in the MTA system.
I have been an Intervac member since 2004.
