Interaction with Guests
My husband works from home - so one of us is availble to meet you, give you keys, show you around and answer any questions that you may have. We are a busy family and love to host guests. We live upstairs from this apartment, this is our HOME. It is not large apartment building. It is a Brownstone, with a few apartments in it.
Nestled into Historic Harlem on a very quite residential block, lots of street parking if needed. just blocks away from trendy Harlem hotspots - Red Rooster, etc.. Beautiful churches surround the block and there is a playground and courts right across the street. Sunny block where everyone says hello !!
7 min walk in either direction to Express stop for 4,5,6 train , MetroNorth and Express Stop 2,3 train.
bus stop on both corners. 20 - 30 minutes to Midtown Manhattan, Times Square. 15-20 minutes to most major musuems.
Other Things to Note
wonderful grocery store 1 block away, Deli that will deliver basic groceries to the buidling for free. The kitchen is stocked with Coffee and Tea, sugar and creamers. Iron and Ironing Board provided. Hairdryer provided.
we live upstairs and will respect your need for privacy AND ask that you respect ours. Be respectful of the fact we have children- so this is NOT a Party apartment. nor is this appropriate place for illicit activities. We will try our best to accomadate a Flexible Check IN/OUT times. But if we have same day bookings - we can NOT change from the posted times.Helpful if you can tell me before you arrive the times you will need.
Karen was very welcoming when we arrived and showed us around the apartment. It's a great little spot where there is everything you need and even a nice little patio where you can eat breakfast. The area is really nice and people there are friendly. Can't count how many times we were greeted with a good morning or good evening walking through the neighborhood. There are some really nice coffee shops, supermarkets and restaurants nearby. There are subway stations 10 min walk away and you can get downtown in about 20-25 minutes. We would definitely recommend staying at Karen & Adams and in Harlem again.
A great place to stay in New York. Close to subway and other transport like the M60 to La Guardia. The location was very quiet and private, a retreat from the New York bustle. Karen was very welcoming and was very contactable for any queries during our stay. The place was very clean and comfortable, and had lots of space. I would definitely recommend this a good place to stay in NYC!
apartment clean , well appointed and quiet
the owners gave us very good advice.
A small negative point , it is a cuite far from the center of Manhattan ( 45 minutes by metro).
We stayed for one week in Big Apple at Karen's Studio - it was absolutely perfect. The studio in Harlem is the ideal base for discovering this fascinating city. Karen was extremely helpful, showed us all the possiblities we had in the surroundings (actually we ate in four of her recommended restaurants - Red Rooster, yuzu, Chez Lucienne and Sylvias Soul Food!). The studio has everything you wish for a stay - exactly as described in the add. We definitively recommend a stay in this studio!
We stayed for nearly three weeks and had a truly wonderful time. Karen and her husband are super friendly and helpful. They gave us a warm welcome and lots of advice on the neighborhood, and they made sure we had everything we needed throughout our stay.
The location is absolutely perfect. The apartment is very convenient to both the 2/3 and the 4/5/6 as well as to the Metro North station at 125th street. But you might not need to go anywhere as the neighborhood has everything you need, including great bars and restaurants.
We had a wonderful time and we would stay again in a heartbeat.
This place was a well-located, just a short walk from the subway. Its located in a vibrant community and we never felt unsafe. Great value for money, especially since you get a kitchen and patio. The studio has air conditioning, providing a nice reprieve from the New York summer. Karen was great and provided info on nearby restaurants, grocery stores etc when we checked in. We stayed for almost a week and Karen touched base with us during the stay to see if we needed anything. Don't worry about privacy, you'll get it. There is some noise from above (people walking around) but this was expected and during awake hours only (you won't lose any sleep).
Karen og Adam var meget søde og gæstfri. De var nemme at få fat i, de gange det var nødvendigt.
Området er meget stille og roligt, og man føler sig på ingen måde utryg der.
Der er ikke langt til flere gode restauranter. Blandt andet kan sushi-restauranten Yuzu klart anbefales!
Subway'en ligger cirka 10 minutters gang fra lejligheden, og der er ikke mere end 25 minutters rejse ind til Times Square.
Lejligheden er lige som den ser ud på billederne, har mere eller mindre alt hvad man behøver. Sengen er en sovesofa, men det mærker man ikke. Man sover godt. Køleskabet larmer lidt, og det er faktisk det eneste der er at sætte en finger på.
alt i alt, kan vi kun anbefale at booke overnatninger hos Karen og Adam.
Bedre og rarere værter skal man lede længe efter!
Tak for en super uge! :)

About the Host, Karen
We are young family that loves living in the city, I have lived here for over 19 years. My Husband and I are both originally from Miami, FL. We just adore Manhattan. Our children go to school in different sections of the city and play sports all over the Metro Area. I raced sailboats in the area for over 15 years and my husband played Rugby locally and in the Midwest & FL. We have very diverse interests and friends in the city, chefs , food writers , healthcare professionals.. in addition we have done alot of the Renovation on the building ourselves- so if you like a well rounded family to meet that do a little bit of everything in the city - we are it!
