You will love this traditionally-styled, private duplex. Modern luxury meets history with antique furniture, original brick walls, UHD flatscreen, modern kitchen and a top-tier mattress. Enjoy 1.5 baths, a green garden, and a pet-friendly apartment.
The apartment offers easy access to the entire City, one block from the subway, and the neighborhood is host to some of the best restaurants in the City.
Harlem is its own microcosm within New York and could be explored for days without seeing it all, especially with a huge popularity boost in the past 10 years.
Celebrity chefs like Marcus Samuelsson have opened globally-known restaurants like Red Rooster, known for its jazz brunch, fusions of Southern staples and downstairs performance space Ginny’s Supper Club. Meanwhile, new shops, music venues and ethnic-centric museums make the neighborhood endlessly interesting.
The National Jazz Museum pairs live performances with discussions. You can also learn more about Puerto Rican, Latin American and Caribbean culture and history at El Museo del Barrio. The Studio Museum of Harlem is known for work by African-American artists and pieces representing the African diaspora and original works from Africa.
Film festivals and workshops are also featured at Maysles Cinema while old-school jazz bars and speakeasy-style bars can be found nearby like Minton’s, Showmans Jazz Club and Cotton Club, where 1920’s-style big-bands can be heard.
We love to indulge with soul-food at Billie’s Black and Miss Mamie’s Spoonbread Too. Cajun and creole dishes can also be tried at Londel’s Supper Club, po’boys at Harlem Food Bar and French fare at Chez Lucienne. You can start or end the evening with state-of-the-art cocktails at 67 Orange Street before or after a show at the 80-year-old Apollo Theater.
The Abyssinian Baptist Church, brownstones and parks like St. Nicholas and Marcus Garvey Park also make wandering around outdoors a gorgeous adventure on any day.
My apartment is centrally located with easy access to the Subway. Cabs and Ubers are also plentiful, and it's a safe neighborhood to walk, day or night.
