About the property

semi-private with kitchenette, central to city, transportation, and parks.

Willkommen! Bienvenidos! Welcome. I speak english, hablo espanol, ich kann deutsch. You have your own floor (the fourth floor) of a historic Harlem brownstone with queen bed with memory foam, private bath and private roof terrace with bbq and city view.Please note that we are NOT renting a separate apartment; the entry to the upper floor is through our living area on the floor below. I have just added a kitchenette: you have your own small refrigerator, toaster oven, and electric kettle. Central, quiet, happening neighborhood. I am a psychologist and raised my teenage son here in Harlem. The room is light-filled and airy with two desks, armchair, everything you need for your new york city adventure. We have two cats but they can be kept out of your area, so this is only a problem if you have a severe allergy.

My downstairs neighbor, Carolyn, runs the business Welcome to Harlem, and we can give you discounts on jazz brunches, historic walking tours (of African-American and Jewish history of Harlem),, and more.

About The Owner

I have lived in Harlem for 17 years, and raised my son (now 15) here. While the neighborhood has been very gentrified recently (there are dozens of upscale restaurants, bars, cafes within minutes walk), it still has a historical Harlem feeling and is a great place to live. While I have worked for 20 years as a psychologist, I have always had a great interest in history, especially the history of different immigrant populations and their interaction with each other. I am also now a licensed tour guide and give tours of Jewish Harlem (100 years ago Harlem was the third largest Jewish community in the world!!!). If this is something that interests you, let me know and I will make sure you can join a group tour or I can give you a private one, at 50% discount.

The Owner purchased this house in 1997

What makes this house unique

We are within a ten minute walk of several great parks (central park, morningside park, and marcus garvey park. Very convenient to subways which will bring you downtown, to times square, in less than half an hour. Harlem is more historically preserved than much of Manhattan, and has less population density, so has a distinctively relaxed but lively feeling. The bedroom is back-facing so incredibly quiet for the city.

Such a Gem!

  • 5 of 5

Hannah and her room were wonderful! The roof deck was the highlight of the room -- a private space with a fantastic view - we drank coffee every morning and had a nightcap there every night! The neighborhood was fantastic; we could've spent our whole visit in Harlem. Amazing restaurants and coffee shops all a close walk away.

Hannah was wonderfully friendly, but definitely allowed us to feel like the space was completely ours! Would stay again, in a heartbeat!

Quiet location and Hannah is the sweetest. Felt like we were staying with friends. A few stairs but not an issue for most. The cats were a welcome addition as we missed all of our pets.

Hannah is the best host ever!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been happier with the accommodations. Hannah stayed up late to welcome us when our flight was late. We came and went as we pleased. The location is very convenient to everywhere in Manhattan, and the neighborhood is fascinating. We'd be happy to stay there again.

Quiet neighborhood - great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Hannah was so nice and helpful when we arrived. We had complete privacy in our little apartment. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. Some great places to eat nearby. You gotta go to Harlem Shake and Sylvia's for some great food! The subway was close by and fairly easy to get around. The terrace provided us a place to smoke in private and enjoy the city at night. We really couldn't believe how quiet it was! There's a lot of stairs but you should expect to do a lot of walking when you come to NYC. The bed was firm for me but perfect for my hubby. She provided so many blankets that I was able to put a couple on my side for my comfort level. The cats were no bother at all. A great place to experience life in NY! We will definitely be back!!

Authentic neighbourhood and house

  • 5 of 5

My mum and I stayed here beginning of September, the neighbourhood is amazing.Easy to walk to the metro and 20 minute walk to central park. Hannah is very friendly and accommodating, the view from the balcony is amazing. The kitties are friendly and a welcomed addition. As a side note, a whole foods is opening this fall which is going to be right around the corner! Everything you need for your stay in NYC, will definitely come back again.
