A Hip and Trendy Member of the Marriott Chain
A hip and trendy member of the Marriott chain. I advise that the Long Island City Aloft is a fun property with a variety of different room types to accommodate your needs. Hotel amenities include a 24-hour gym with free weights and elliptical machines, the friendly “W XYZ” bar, a 24/7 pantry and a comfortable lobby lounge. Each room features their ultra-comfortable signature bed, walk-in shower, a charging station for all of your electronics, and a 42-inch LCD television. Manhattan is a short ride away: You’re just down the block from the Queens Plaza subway station and within a short walk to the Queensboro Plaza elevated line.
Legacy & Super Ambassador
A native of Queens, I currently reside in Minneapolis. I ran the Twin Cities Marathon twice, as well as New York and Dublin. Over the years, I completed many half-marathons, as well as 10K races.
While now a member of the “senior circuit” with my distance running days behind me, I have countless memories of my daily runs in Chicago, continuing in Oakland with beautiful Lake Merritt across the street from my apartment, and on the countless trails around the lakes and in the woods of Minnesota.
My biggest fan, my daughter Sarah, died of cancer in 2013 at the age of 24. My primary charity focus is the annual scholarship fund set up in her memory at Eastview High School in Apple Valley, MN. Scholarship details are available at www.evcg.org.
