Interaction with Guests
I live in a separate apartment in the same building. I'm quite busy with my family however, I am there as much, or as little as you need.
The neighborhood has lots of restaurants and cafes. It's a historic neighborhood with low-scale buildings. There are very few high-rise buildings in our neighborhood so it has a different feeling than other parts of Manhattan. The people are very friendly and are quick to say hello.
We are just two blocks from West 125th Street, a major thoroughfare with bus and trains end-to-end.

Die Wohnung war genau der richtige Startpunkt für unsere Tage in NYC und liegt sehr schön. Nachts ist es ruhig und die Ubahn ist nicht weit. Opal ist sehr freundlich, hat uns herzlich empfangen und wir haben uns rundum wohl gefühlt!
Opal met us when we came and was very welcoming. Showed us everything and had a list of places to eat at and visit nearby. Everything was neat and clean.
Harlem is also a fantastic area to live in and I would recomend this place to everyone.
Opal and her family were our superheroes! After our original host cancelled on us a week before our trip, Opal graciously accepted us with very short notice. The location was great, far enough away from the noise but close enough to be anywhere in 20-30 minutes. The apartment was exactly as described and being two girls from the Midwest who had never been to the city we felt very safe walking the neighborhood day and night. We are very happy to have had the opportunity to stay with Opal and her family.
Apartment was clean and nicely decorated. Plenty of space for me and my son. Opal was a pleasant host, greeting us with energy and a smile for check in, even after adjusting our arrival estimate numerous times due to flight delays. She was quick to respond whenever we had a request or inquiry. She also had great recommendations for local spots and we loved each one we made it to. Wonderful neighborhood location in Harlem in easy walking distance to subway, grocery store, cabs, shopping, restaurants and live music. The basics of what we needed (towels, linens, wifi, etc) were readily available. Building was also safe and secure with individual access. This was our first airbnb experience and it worked out great. Would definitely recommend this apartment and stay there again when in NYC. We had a great time!
Opal was very kind to navigate our separate arrival to the house. She was very organized from the initial contact, which made it so much easier for us to make our way into the city and to the apartment. The stay was very pleasant, and the location is great. Incredible restaurants near by and transit downtown via 125th street was easy to access.
Après nous avoir donné toutes les indications nécessaires pour aller de l'aéroport à l'appartement, Opal nous a accueilli avec beaucoup de chaleur et nous a expliqué tous ce qu'il y avait à savoir sur le quartier et l'appartement, qui correspondait absolument aux descriptions.
Le quartier est très agréable, il y a toutes sortes de restaurants aux alentours ainsi qu'un supermarché très bien achalandé. Opal a également laissé une feuille avec toutes les adresses utiles et les infos sur les bus et métros. Il est très agréable de résider à Harlem, les connections pour aller dans tous les quartiers de Manhattan sont très pratiques et c'est très calme, nous avons très bien dormi.
Une adresse à recommander !
