Historic New York Brownstone

A great convenient location will let you enjoying a very unique and quiet neighbourhood feel in the middle of New York city, while being 15 minutes train ride from the Midtown.

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!

Beautiful apartment. Exactly as described.

  • 5 of 5

We were in NYC for 2 days. Wish we could have stayed longer in the apartment. Great location to the subway with a short ride to Times Square. We enjoyed a couple of restaurants in the neighborhood . You won't be disappointed staying here.

Spacious, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with this apartment. It was very spacious and was generally well equipped. The location was excellent and, like other visitors, we found the local people friendly and happy to pass the time of day with you. We stayed in apartment 4 which meant that we had quite a few stairs to climb which was a bit of a challenge when carrying heavy suitcases. Local restaurants / diners offered good quality food at a very reasonable price.

We happened to arrive on a holiday weekend (Memorial Day) which meant that subway travel was disrupted, however, local New Yorkers were more than happy to offer helpful advice.

Great Stay in Harlem

  • 4 of 5

Our apartment was clean and really unique. We were able to access any transportation very easily and Julie was great about communication. My only complaint is that the beds are not comfortable at all. It felt like we were sleeping on box springs rather than a comfortable mattress. This was the case in both rooms, so getting a comfortable night's rest was a challenge. The apartment is a couple of doors down from a great little eatery called Barawine and it is a great spot to stop in at night for a cocktail before bed or dinner.

Owner's Response: We have never had any complaints about the quality of sleep or quality of mattresses for our Penthouse Duplex prior to this review.... The Penthouse is quiet, green, with terrace in each bedroom, with sunroof and lots of light in the morning, with romantic view of old New York, with birds and even squirrels... Certainly not your usual NYC match-box apartment. Both bedrooms in the Penthouse have queen-size large beds. I am not quite sure what kind of comparison is at work in this review: while our mattresses are not of the medicinal quality, they are 12", new and in a very good condition... with padded mattress covers.. I specifically asked the next guests about their quality of sleep - they said "excellent, no complaints!" Thank you for reading.
