The space

Private sunny room in the heart of Harlem available in large apartment in a building erected in 1933 that now has landmark status. The apartment is located in Sugarhill, an historic area of Harlem on the Upper Westside of NYC. The room is about 100 sq ft with a built-in floor-to-ceiling closet, twin size bed, a nightstand, lounge chair and a floor. I have 2 additional bedrooms listed on airbnb. I open my space to people like you who are in need of short-term accommodations while in NYC for work, pleasure, or both. If you book one of my rooms, there may be others travelers in my apartment upon your arrival. So If you book one of my rooms, please be trusting and open to the marvelous opportunity to get to know new people. The apt decor is mid-century modern. I am a fashion designer and often work from home in my studio. The neighborhood is undergoing gentrification and has an eclectic mix of artists, and professionals of various income levels and ethnicities.

Jackie Robinson Park, designated an Historic Harlem Park, is one block away. The park includes an amphitheater for summer concerts and a public swimming pool. There are grocery stores, banks, and restaurants within a few blocks. The apartment is located on the block of an express A/D and local C/B subway train stops making trip to mid and lower Manhattan short (15-30 minutes) and easy. Wireless internet is included. No couples (one person per room), no guests, no smokers, and no drugs.

I have 2 additional rooms available. So parties of up to 3 who wish to each have a private room in the same apartment may book with me. Please look to the left and see "My Other Listings"

The location is directly over the subway which conveniently has both local and express services. The intersection onto which the room faces is very lively and can be quite noisy - this is the city that never sleeps! The room is is exactly as pictured but more worn. This is an older apartment with out recent renovations. The building entrance is quite grand and full of detail. Kimberley is a warm, trusting host who managed to slot arrangements for my stay into her busy schedule, with a smile.

Kimberly was very welcoming, is very easyeasygoing and friendly person. She gave me very useful tips (about the subway, the placesto visit). She helped me with my luggages. The room was as described. Everything was ok. The building was very close to the subway station: very helpful.

We had a bit of a miscommunication on my arrival time, but Kimberly was very friendly and even showed me some of her designs! (She's really talented). She also offered me a towel and some of the food she just cooked. Very very friendly. The location couldn't be better - as you are steps away from the train - literally! It got a bit noisy at night (of course she can't control that!) and the apartment could have been a bit cleaner. Also, she has a cat, but I'm unsure if that was in the listing - just in case anyone has allergies. It was a comfy friendly place to go for a night's stay and met my price and location needs.

Kimberly was very nice and accommodating. Stayed there whilee rushing to find apartments so I was in and out and she was very understanding of that. She told me to continue my nap when we were supposed to be talking business at that time, I was exhausted and that was just very sweet of her! I definitely recommend staying here. It's a very nice place, loved the entrance, and more so the adorable warm interior design inside her apartment. On top of that, you hear Harlems heart beat right outside of her bedroom windows, this is a real gem!
