Interaction with Guests
Guests are invited to attend art events at the Gadson Gallery which are listed at (website hidden). Guests in need of assistance can call or text the host. Since we live in the same Brownstone someone is usually nearby if needed. We love recommending fun and interesting things to do and see that are budget friendly.
Enjoy St Nicholas Park and all of the local area parks. We are walking distance from the Apollo, Schomburg Center and Studio Museum. Dining and fast food delivery is all close by. We encourage guest to attend local venues and events so postcards and brochures are on hand.
Our haven in Harlem still is home to the African American community with an urban vibe that is slower paced than mid town. No complaints about safety have been made by any guests that have stayed with me. The local police station is around the corner and Harlem Hospital 2 blocks away. Visiting NYC attractions downtown is quick and easy: By train 15 - 20 mins, by bus is longer but you have the opportunity to see the city.
Easy to travel by both subway (B, C, 2 and 3 trains are 2 blocks away) and buses (# 2 and 10 are closest but many are close by and take you downtown with a view of the city). The #60 bus to LaGuardia Airport is 9 blocks away and local subways can access bus, train and other local Airports. Love the easy access to cabs on the Avenues and main streets!
