About the property

2 Bedrooms, half a block away from express trains, close to parks, non-smoking

This 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment is perfect for the traveler who wants to experience all that New York City has to offer while staying in a quiet historic neighborhood. This treelined quintessential New York block is also half a block from the A and D Trains which take you to midtown in 2 stops (11 minutes.)

Currently new legislation outlaws short term rentals in multi-family units (buildings categorized as 3-family or greater by the DOB. This house is a DOB certified 2 family house which makes it legal to rent short term according to the new legislation.

Outfitted perfectly for any renter, this apartment is very comfortable and includes a washer/dryer. It is an open layout with a comfy couch, flat screen TV and a large dining table. 1 bedroom has a queen sized bed and the other twin sized bunk beds. Fully stocked, the kitchen has all the amenities one would need to cook a 4 course meal, but why would you cook when you could eat out and have any ethnic cuisine steps away from your apartment!

About Kate

The owners Mark and Kate grew up in the same town but never met until one fateful Thanksgiving on a flight home, and the rest was history. Both Mark and Kate live in the upper level of the home and rent out their garden level apartment. They like to rent to visitors and share their favorite things to do in the city.

Kate purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Kate chose Manhattan

This is a beautiful historic home on a street that hasn't changed since 1899. This tree-lined, well lit street is known for its friendly long-term residents who take care of the block. The home is historic and recently renovated for modern amenities. The owners plan on living here until they are old and grey!

What makes this apartment unique

The A,D, B and C trains at the end of the block and the 1 train three blocks away, is one of the best features of this location. You can get anywhere in the city very quickly.

awesome stay, easy access to trains, clean, modern

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 5 nights, although in Harlem in Upper Manhattan the express train is only a hundred or so metres away. Awesome character area, best fried chicken I've had in my life around the corner. House was well stocked with good internet access and clean rooms.

A wonderful week in New York and Hamilton Heights

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a full week at the apartment (2 teenage kids and parents) and had a great time in the accommodation, the local area of Hamilton Heights and New York generally.

The apartment was perfect for our needs (second bedroom with bunks to cope with a girl and a boy), all amenities we needed (washer, dryer), great access to 145th street subway and A-line and lots of good ideas were to eat and drink locally.

Kate was great - we met briefly on the steps and she always responded quickly to requests.

For a busy family wanting to do all the usual NY stuff but be able to get out and relax in the evening - PERFECT.

Quiet and convenient apartment

  • 5 of 5

We would not hesitate to stay here on future visits to NYC. Everything you need while on vacation/holiday is within walking distance from this clean, comfortable and safe apartment. It was nice to come back from a hectic day of sightseeing and just relax on the front steps of the brownstone with a glass of wine. Getting to know Mark and Kate and a few of their neighbors was a definite plus. Kate was attentive to our needs and proved to be a gracious, accommodating host. With any luck we will meet up with them again someday.

Great location, quiet and safe.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was perfect for our family's stay in NYC. 4 of the major subway lines are 1/2 block away and another major line is 2 blocks away. The street was a welcome change from the hustle of downtown once you turned the corner from the subway. I enjoyed the backyard patio every day with my morning coffee. Kate and Mark are excellent hosts, very friendly and responsive. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is well equipped. Several evenings, my granddaughter and I stayed out late and felt very safe walking home from the subway by ourselves. My grandson took the subway home by himself and also had no problems whatsoever. I would highly recommend this property.
