The Neighborhood

Saint Nicholas Avenue is a major New York City street. It runs north-south between 193rd Street and 111th Streets in the New York City borough of Manhattan. It goes through the neighborhoods of Washington Heights (where you will be staying) , Harlem, Hamilton Heights, and (website hidden). Nicholas Avenue is named after Saint Nicholas of Myra, patron saint of New Amsterdam since Dutch times.

The apartment is located on St NIcholas, between 155 and 156th Street, not far from Audubon Terrace, a cluster of five distinguished Beaux Arts institutional buildings, home to major, though little-visited museum, The Hispanic Society of America. The Society has the largest collection of works by El Greco and Goya outside of the Museo del Prado, including one of Goya's famous paintings of Cayetana, Duchess of Alba. In September 2007, it commenced a three-year collaboration with the Dia Art Foundation. The campus on Broadway at West 156th Street also houses The American Academy of Arts and Letters, which holds twice yearly, month-long public exhibitions, and Boricua College.

You are also just steps away from lovely Morris Jumel Mansion (check the photos) - Manhattan's oldest remaining house. It is located in the landmarked Jumel Terrace Historic District, between West 160th and West 162nd Street, just east of St. Nicholas Avenue. An AAM-accredited historic house museum, the Mansion interprets the colonial era, the period when General George Washington occupied it during the American Revolutionary War, and the early 19th century in New York.

The Paul Robeson Home, located at 555 Edgecombe Avenue on the corner of Edgecombe Avenue and 160th Street, is a National Historic Landmark building. The building is now known for its famous African American residents including actor Paul Robeson, musician Count Basie, and boxer Joe Louis.

Other famous Washington Heights residents include Althea Gibson the first African American Wimbledon Champion, Frankie Lymon of "Why Do Fools Fall in Love?" fame, Leslie Uggams who was a regular on the Sing Along with Mitch Show. Other musicians who resided in the area for significant periods of time were jazz drummers Tony Williams and Alphonse Muzon and Grammy award winning Guitarist Marlon Graves.

On February 21, 1965, Malcolm X was assassinated during a speech at the Audubon Ballroom, on Broadway at West 165th Street. The interior of the building was demolished, but the Broadway facade remains, incorporated into one of Columbia's Audubon Center buildings. It is now the home of the Malcolm X and Dr. Betty Shabazz Memorial and Educational Center.[9] Several shops, restaurants and a bookstore occupy the first floor.

At the Hudson's shore, in Fort Washington Park[10] stands the Little Red Lighthouse, a small lighthouse located at the tip of Jeffrey's Hook at the base of the eastern pier of the George Washington Bridge. It was made famous by a 1942 children's book and is the site of a namesake festival in the late summer. A 5.85-mile recreational swim finishes there in early autumn.[11] It's also a popular place to watch for peregrine falcons.[12]

Truly amazing neighborhood.

Getting around

Just steps from the C train.
If you need other trains: 2 blocks from 1 train and 10 minutes walk from B,D or A.

Subway (C train):
After getting out of the building - turn left. Subway stop is at the end of the block (around 150 feet). To get to Times Square - take C train DOWNTOWN to 42nd Street.

To come back home:
*Take C train to 155th Street.
*Take A train to 145th Street and change across the platform to C to 155th Street
*Take D train to 125th Street and change across the platform to C to 155th Street
*Take 1 train to 157th Street. Walk East 2 blocks to St Nicholas Avenue, cross the street and turn right (5 minutes walk).
*If you are coming back home late and you don’t understand the subway changes… - take the yellow taxi. Say you need to get to St Nicholas and 155th Street. Ask to drive through Manhattan, not highway. It shall cost you up to $20 if you are coming from downtown (like 14th Street).

Other Things to Note

I hope you will be having fantastic time while in New York.

One favor for me: if you don’t know how something works, where something is, can you use/take it or not please ASK first. If I’m not around - text me or use AIRBNB messenger.

If in conversation with any neighbor, please introduce yourself as friend visiting. Do not mention AIRBNB.

  • Staying at Anita's place was my very first Airbnb experience, and I absolutely loved it! I needed to check in earlier than 5 p.m. after a 15-hour-long flight from Seoul, and Anita and her boyfriend kindly helped me with that. even with how to get to Anita's place from the airport with details. Such nice and beautiful people! Anita's apartment was filled with such beautiful paintings and drawings, which photos listed here on Airbnb didn't really show. (You should go check them out yourself! :D) The room was very clean and spacious, and the subway station was just a few steps away. I couldn't say one negative thing about my stay at Anita's. Thank you so much, Anita, and I hope to see you again in the near future! xx

  • sehr nette, offene und freundliche Gastgeberin. Das Zimmer war klein, aber da wir tagsüber immer lang unterwegs waren war es ok. Die ganze Wohnung war sehr sauber und eine minute von der nächsten subway station entfernt mit der man 25 minuten bis zum time square fährt. Alles in allem, würde ich es jederzeit wieder machen und kann anita nur weiter empfehlen.

  • Anita is a very kind and reliable host. She organized our arrival perfectly, keeping in touch with us via airbnb communication platform so we did not miss a message. Not only was the bed and the sheets first class, she also provided literature on NYC and on museums and advice on shopping facilities in the neighborhood.
    Anita's beautiful room was a perfect place to stay during our first visit to NYC. Just a few steps away from the C-line station we could get there from most places in downtown in not much more than 20 minutes.
    Definitely recommendable!

    Anita ist sehr freundlich, gut organisiert und absolut verlässlich. Ihre geschmackvoll eingerichtete Wohnung liegt ausgesprochen verkehrsgünstig und ruhig in einem gepflegten Gebäude. Wir haben uns dort sehr wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit wiederkommen.

  • Sehr schönes und geschmackvoll eingerichtetes Appartement. Vor allem die Küche läßt nichts zu wünschen übrig. Sehr gute Lage mit der Subway vor der Tür direkt nach Downtown. Sehr nette Gastgeberin, gut organisiert und hilfsbereit.

    Very nice and tastefully furnished apartment. Especially the kitchen leaves nothing to be desired. Very good central location with the subway in the street directly to Downtown. Very nice hostess, well organized and helpful.
