Great Harlem Experience

5 of 5
Milton is a cool guy with a laid back attitude. The property is larger enough for 5 or 6 adults and is in a good location close to the subway. It also has air conditioning which is handy for the New York summer. The locals are very colourful characters but not in an intimidating way which gives the New York tourist a real taste of Harlem and city life. Would recommend to anybody wanting to experience a taste of Harlem whilst also being 15 mins from Time Square by subway
