The Space

Large, by New York standards of course, garden apartment in a charming uptown Brownstone. This one bedroom (queen bed) can accommodate two (with a possible third guest on the couch). Spacious master bedroom, large living room, bathroom with shower, and full kitchen. You will also have access to our backyard, complete with vegetable garden in the summer. This is a very safe and quiet neighborhood with beautiful tree lined streets and amazing architecture.

3 blocks from express subway (2/3 line) and short walk to ABCD (next express stop 59th street) and 456 subways. Short walk to Central Park and Marcus Garvey Park (both with swimming pool access in summer). Only minutes to midtown on subway.

Also nearby: Southern soul food mecca Sylvia's, new wine bar/Italian restaurant, charming cafe serving great breakfast, French bistro, Starbucks, and cupcake cafe. Neighborhood gems include: Apollo Theater, The Studio Museum in Harlem, Columbia University, Lenox Lounge Jazz Club, and City University of New York. Short subway ride or 30 minute walk to Yankee Stadium.

Paid washer/dryer available (coin operated) on-site. Parking is never a problem on our street, but you do have to honor NYC's opposite side of street parking rules 4 days a week. I've not listed this "Handicap Accessible," but you only have to maneuver 3 steps to get into the apartment.

  • Megan was very helpful and answered any questions that I had promptly. She went above and beyond giving me useful recommendations which I really appreciated. Her apartment was great. Very homey and comfortable. The location was perfect for my needs. I would stay here again if it were available! Thanks, Megan!

  • The Brownstone was absolutely great and we were feeling at home after some moments. Although weather was nice and plenty of entertainment opportunities were out there as they typically are in NYC, we rather decided to spend an evening "at home" at Megan's and Liz' place. Those two were extremely helpful and really really nice!! We can highly recommend this place for everybody who want to see NYC and you should definitely follow their restaurant recommendations!!! :-)

  • The brownstone was great - perfect for both me and my boyfriend. We had taken the red eye to make my conference in the city at 8am. Megan was really nice and let us check-in early so he didn't have to hang out at Starbucks for hours. After getting some sleep, he was able to work remotely from the living room using the Wifi.

    The brownstone was clean, comfortable, convenient and very spacious for the 2 of us. As it was only 3blocks from the 2/3 line reaching midtown was a breeze. Megan was quick to respond to our questions & left detailed information not only about the apartment but the general area (where to eat, where to avoid, etc). Couldn't have been easier - Definitely Recommended!!

  • Our first airbnb experience could not have been any more perfect!! Megan and Liz went above and beyond to make sure that we were comfortable, happy, and had a wonderful experience. Their home in Harlem was so cozy and welcoming when we arrived. We felt as though we were right at home! Megan joyfully informed us of how to work all of the appliances , how to get around to the nearest subway stations, restaurants, and grocery stores. We knew we were in for a treat! The location of the brownstone was absolutely fabulous... It was easy to get to the subway and train stations and were only a $10 cab ride away from the heart of NYC. If you are thinking of staying in NYC, you should definitely get in touch with Megan and Liz! We want to stay at their place every time we come to the city now. Airbnb not only provided us with a wonderful place to stay but also opened the doors to meet new friends! Thank you SO much for everything! We feel so blessed <3

  • My husband was the lucky one on this trip to stay at this gorgeous apartment. He loved the place, not only for Megan's good tase but also because of the location, charm and adorable little bench in the backyard. They didn't meet but she was available for his doubts and questions. Her suggestions were also great. Thanks!!

  • A wonderful place to stay in Harlem. Everything is nearby. With metro lines A, B,C and 1,2,3 you can go anywhere you want in nyc plus it is a very good location to visit Harlem (Apollo, diner at Sylvia's). My husband and I just loved Megan's place which is spacious with nice colours and furniture AND a very nice backyard. At the end of the day, it was always a pleasure to get back to for relaxing and planning the evening.

  • Megan and Liz were a lifesaver. They stepped in and helped us when our reservations were canceled last minute. I came to NYC to run the ING Marathon and was stressed with trying find a replacement for me a few friends. They were AMAZING and alleviated any stress I had. There place is beautiful and in a great neighborhood, the best place I've stayed in NYC, and I've been there over a dozen times. Will always recommend these angels and there hospitality. Thanks again Megan and Liz, you ladies made our trip that much more (website hidden), we may be hitting you up again from time to time to rent your place if its available. And the race was amazing!

  • Megan was an amazing hostess. The apartment was very spacious and very nicely decorated. She was extremely helpful in organizing our stay and went above and beyond by even providing us with a number of fantastic restaurant recommendations. We would love to stay at her place again.
