The space

This is a lovely recently renovated and furnished garden-level apartment with its own private entrance. Located in an owner-occupied, Harlem brownstone on a quiet, tree-lined block. Our block is very safe and neighbor friendly.
The space comfortably sleeps up to 4 people. You will find that we offer everything you need to make your stay in NYC perfect. Beautiful hardwood floors, large living room, kitchenette area has appliances (refrigerator, microwave, coffee maker, tea pot), dishes & cutlery.

Interaction with guests

I personally meet and welcome you and answer any questions that you may have upon your arrival. I will show you how to enter with your entry code and show you around the apartment.
You will have the entire apartment completely to yourself to enjoy throughout your stay.
I live upstairs from the garden floor and I'm always available via phone/text/email if you need anything!

The neighborhood

We are locate in arguably the most popular fast growing community in all of Manhattan.
Harlem is a very exciting and diverse neighborhood with all different types of cultures and people, a true NYC UPTOWN MELTING POT... which means there is something all around to do here. :-)

Getting around

It's conveniently located near westside (A,B,C trains) and equal distance to (2/3) subways. Both are a 5-7 minute walk from the house and both will quickly get you to any other part of the city. The Metro North railroad on 125th street and many bus lines are available (including the M60 bus to Laquardia Airport). Taxis are easily flagged on the avenues surrounding our block. Uber and other local car services are always just a phone call away.
Free street parking... just obey the signs :-)
There is a parking garage around the corner

Other things to note

I have live/owned this Harlem BrownStone for over 30 years and love what Harlem continues to blossom. I take a lot of pride in making sure that it will be just as good to you as it has been for me :-)

George was a great host, responsive, & charming. The apartment is as described, nice sitting room and tv, well set up kitchenette, comfortable bed. We walked Harlem from here, even to Red Rooster for lunch. Would definitely stay with George again when we're in the area.

George's place was perfect for my visiting family members. He was a very accommodating host, and checked in a few times during the stay to make sure everything was going well. The apartment was clean and in a convenient location. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting the city, and for my future family and friend visitors :)

I and my husband highly recommend George's apartment in Harlem and George as a host - positive personality with great sense of humour and always available for his guests. I attended a 3-day conference at the Columbia University and spent a few days extra with my husband in New York City downtown. George's apartment is very cozy, clean, and perfectly located close to subway (express lines), Columbia University is at walking distance, grocery shops, jazz venues, restaurants. During our stay we managed to easily visit many places in the midtown, including spending evenings at the Smoke Jazz Club in the South Harlem, Metropolitan Opera event in Upper Manhattan, and stand up comedy at Village Underground in Lower Manhattan. The apartment is as described and even better with a personal welcome and little something that made us feel as if we were home from the beginning (fresh fruit, cooled water, coffee and tea). We felt very welcome as if we were a part of family. When we are in New York again, we will definitely stay at George's apartment, as his smile and attentiveness made our eventful week in New York City even better. Thank you George; we will be back!

George was great! His home was just as expected. Very hospitable and communication. We had a problem with the door at first and he fixed it immediately! He also let us check in late since our flight was late as well. I would definitely stay here again! Thanks again George!

So to sum it up this is the best airbnb I've stayed in. George greeted me with such an amazing place. When I first walked up on the brownstone he gave me a thorough walk threw and answered all my questions . The place was cozy with such great amenities. Loved the tv with Netflix built in but thankfully George's place was nestled in the heart of Harlem ; so I wasn't able to watch any tv. Whenever I stay in Harlem I will always look to stay at George's place ❤️
