About Jennifer and Ken

We are avid travelers who love NYC. Ken has lived here all of his life and Jen came here for college and never left. We regularly take advantage of all that our fabulous city of New York offers, and we look forward to sharing our recommendations with you!

Jennifer and Ken purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Jennifer and Ken chose East Harlem

We love living in Harlem. The people are friendly and interesting, the architecture is beautiful, you can go out and catch great music every night of the week, and the food is fantastic! We are close to several subway lines and can get to any other part of the city with ease. We think you will also love the experience of living in our neighborhood, as it will allow you to see how much more there is to NYC than just the tourist attractions. Harlem is a vibrant community that we are sure you will thoroughly enjoy.

What makes this apartment unique

You can feel the history that lives in the brownstones throughout the neighborhood. We love coming home to our classic building with its "Sesame Street" stoop and the garden we've planted in front of the rental studio. People say hello to each other and it often feels more like a small town-- our block also features a beautiful community garden (Harlem Rose Garden) that you are welcome to enjoy!

An authentic NYC experience!

  • 5 of 5

The 4 of us stayed together in this cozy apartment (2 parents and 2 young adolescent boys). The apartment itself was very well equipped with conveniences to make our stay easy while away from home. We were conveniently located close to the subway in Harlem, and getting around the city was very easy from this location. This apartment in Harlem offered an authentic experience of living in NYC!

The apartment was great!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very clean. The lower level of a beautifully lined street of Brownstones. It was very well supplied with necessities, shampoo, laundry detergent, body wash, Dunkin’ Donuts coffee, teas sugar, etc. the bed was very comfy, the air conditioner was great. Needed it a few times. Everything was updated from kitchen to bath. Walked six blocks to the right to catch subway at rush hour and midnight hrs, lots of people hanging out late at night, but no problems, everyone kept to themselves. Lots of trash everywhere, but the same in every area in New York, we think one reason might be, because there are not enough trash cans around. This rental was great! We enjoyed New York soo much. And we did it all, very easy to get around when you download the transit app. And if I ever visit again and this rental is available, I would stay here again.
