About Dennis Decker

An enthusiastic New York and Harlem resident, always ready to give the inside scoop and recommendations on Harlem or NYC. Very involved in the neighborhood. Designer and partner of Harlem Shake, the popular local restaurant. A product, landscape and interior designer with numerous awards and items in national museums. In fact, the building has also been published in several magazines and appeared in films. A world traveller, as I flew for Pan Am for over 7 years.

Dennis Decker purchased this apartment in 2000

Why Dennis Decker chose Manhattan

This building is typical of the historic neighborhood. I was impressed that it still retained so much of its original form and material. However, I was very impressed by the atmosphere of the block, with friendly, open and involved neighbors.

What makes this apartment unique

The quiet friendly tree-lined street, proximity to express subway- only 4 stops to Times Square, closeness to neighborhood coffee shop and historic park, as well as the 125 St. corridor and Central Park.

I actually love sitting on the front stoop while having a coffee or a glass of wine. I love seeing the relaxed street life going by, and being a part of it. Since my block is dominated by private brownstones, rather than apartment buildings, it has a friendlier, small town feeling than most other neighborhoods.

It was our 2nd time at Harlem Hideaway Garden Apartment and it is THE place to be when visiting New York city! The place is clean and well kept, Dennis is a wonderful host, always available if needed. The neighborhood is very friendly and safe. The subway is near by. Great restaurants and grocery stores a short walking distance. Everything makes you feel at home! Thank you again Dennis!

The Best!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this accommodation exceeded our expectations. We are a family of four (kids 15 and 11) and this was the perfect home base from which to explore New York City. We couldn't have asked for a better experience in terms of the property itself, the neighborhood, and our wonderful host Dennis. Highly recommended!!

An amazing stay in New York! It was perfect in every way.

  • 5 of 5

Our perfect stay all started with Dennis, a great host. He was always available when needed. This brownstone is near the subway, restraunts, a grocery store and more. Taking the subway was great to get near so many locations. All the amenties were great and we loved the patio area.This is the way to go for 1, 2 or even 4 people. Oh, the master bed was super comphy too!

Owner's Response: Hello, I'm glad you found everything you needed in the Garden Apartment. I am disappointed that you do not find the bathroom in good condition. With every guest I ask that if there is anything not to their liking to please let me know immediately so I may resolve it. I never heard anything at all during your stay, so this comes as a surprise. I always do my best to deal with any issues immediately, so I'm disappointed I did not get the opportunity to fix it to your liking. I enjoyed having you stay here and I'd love for you to give us another try and we will try harder! Best wishes, Dennis
