Maspeth isn't in Brooklyn. Maspeth is in Queens. I am unaware of any hotels in Maspeth, and apartment rentals are illegal if the building has 3 or more units.

Where EXACTLY do you think you are going -- because it will be a long and difficult trip no matter what.

Maspeth is in Queens - and more importantly it has poor public transportation and isn't a good base for exploring NYC. Why are you there exactly?

There are actually a couple hotels in Maspeth by the LIE. I see their shuttle vans dropping people off at my subway stop in Woodside. I agree the neighborhood isn't a great base for seeing NYC since there is no subway service. Definitely you should hire a car service to get there from the airport since public transit is not an option.

Unless you are staying with a friend, you need to book somewhere else. Take the 1/2/3 from Penn Station to 42nd street, then the 7 train to 46th Street/Bliss Street. Then you will need to flag down a car service depending on how far you are from the train.
