Your own private Harlem hideaway. A quiet dreamy oasis for your busy New York stay. Enjoy life in an 1895 brownstone in one of the city's most charming historic neighborhoods.

The Parlor is a fully furnished one bedroom apartment. It is on the 1st floor of a landmarked private brownstone townhouse in the Mount Morris Historic District in the most coveted area of Harlem.

The living room has a 46'' swing-out, wall mounted LED smart flat screen television and DVD player as well as a remote control radio/iPod player with a playlist of blues and jazz. Wireless Internet access is also provided. Original over-sized photographic artwork creates a dramatic focal point. Enjoy sitting in the vintage fully adjustable government-issued dentist chair. The leather sofa folds out to become a super comfortable memory foam queen-size bed, the highest quality available. The well-stocked bookshelf provides eclectic reading. Original built-in shutters fold out for privacy as well as light control. But the huge south facing windows provide an iconic street view under the spreading honey locust tree canopy and it is a beautiful sight to see.
