Historic New York Brownstone

Surrounding Area.

This is a special opportunity to live on a beautiful landmarked residential block steps to 2/3 train, 2 parks (Central Park and Marcus Garvey Park), and the new celebrity chiefs’ Red Rooster restaurant. Much loved by the locals Settepani and Barawine restaurants and Caffe Latte coffee shop are located on the corner of the block.

The whole area around Marcus Garvey Park captures the authentic energy that is exclusive to Harlem. Featuring free open-air jazz concerts in the summer, it truly represents the spirit of this part of the city. There are many places featuring all kinds of music and art in the area, the legendary Lenox Lounge (now under the new ownership of, as rumor has it, Robert De Niro) just being 3 short blocks away. Not to mention that the house itself literally is being adjacent to the former house of Hammerstein, the famous Broadway composer.

About Julie K

Just an ordinary New York host hoping to do create the best New York City experience for our guests.

I truly love New York.

Julie K purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Julie K chose Manhattan

We have been renovating our historic Harlem brownstone for nearly 4 years!

We really tried to keep the beauty of each and every old architectural element we could save during the renovation and carefully mix it with the state-of-the-art modern additions, like Daikin AC/heating system with individual temperature controls in each room or Bosch kitchen amenities.

hope you enjoy the results!

What makes this apartment unique

Not every home in Manhattan can offer three terraces to have a morning coffee :)

all our guests say that it is a unique treat - to relax in a quiet authentic place after a tiresome, thrill-filled and hectic day of wondering through the New York wilderness!

Great property - good location

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of four adults - two couples - from England in New York for sightseeing.

The apartment was clean, spacious and well equipped. The location was good. We stayed for five nights and went into Manhattan every day. Ideal place to stay with easy subway link. Julie met us on arrival and was really helpful with the property and local area. We would not hesitate to return to this apartment and can recommend it.

Beyond our Dreams

  • 5 of 5

As we were going for 2 weeks we wanted a place that could be our home. After 1 week we had actually adopted that language "i'm getting the subway home". That can only happen naturally and when you feel that somewhere is perfect for you. Julie's property was perfect for us, in a city we found to be perfect for us. We loved Harlem. We loved the fact that we could be mid-town in 15 minutes. We loved the quiet of our neighbourhood but that we were only 5 block from hustle and bustle (not to mention stores and restaurants). I never quite got over the fact that you could walk 100 metres and find yourself at the top of 5th Avenue, looking straight down at the Empire State in the distance. When we return i know for a fact that this is where we would stop.
