GREAT PRIVATE ROOM WITH BALCONY!

Apartment - Private room · W 150th St, New York, NY 10031, United States

Hello!

*Please read this entire description before making a reservation*

*We have an open and friendly community here in this apartment building. We keep our doors open most of the time, and friends may pop in and out, especially when I'm working from home. If you're not comfortable with leaving your room open while you're out for the day, so that I may have access to the balcony, then maybe this isn't the place for you. If you're open and fun and social, then this is definitely the place for you!*

I'm renting my 2nd bedroom centrally located in Sugar Hill, Harlem, Manhattan. I've listed all of the amenities below, if you have any questions feel free to message me anytime and I will respond as soon as possible.

I am also a seasoned traveler and want to make your stay in NYC as enjoyable as possible. I'm willing to help you figure out places to go and things to see and eat. I will have the room all set up with towels and sheets so the only thing you need to figure out is what to do with your day!

My downstairs neighbor and one of my best friends, Ariel, is also an AirBNB host. He is a fully trained yoga instructor and incredible cook, specializing in Ayurvedic and Spanish cuisines. He offers yoga classes and gourmet meals at reasonable prices, both of which his guests rave about, so be sure to ask about them.

The Bedroom:
The bedroom is completely sunlit all day with one extra large window and French doors that lead to the balcony. You will have complete privacy, with your own private entrance, and plenty of space - the room itself is 16 feet by 11 feet, in addition to a huge double wide closet. The room is fully furnished with brand new queen size bed, night stand, 2 floor lamps, large bookshelf, table and 2 chairs, large dresser, large closet, alarm clock, super comfy loveseat, and clean sheets and towels to use for your stay.

The Apartment:
As you can see in the pictures, there is plenty of light in the rest of the apartment. There is a full sized kitchen and a recently renovated bathroom, both of which feature skylights (there are 4 in the apartment).

The Neighborhood:
Centrally located on W 150th Street, near a smorgasbord of restaurants, Riverbank State Park several blocks to the West, and plenty of shopping. There's a great new watering hole, Harlem Public, and a wonderful new Italian restaurant, Tonelli, within a 2 minute walk. There are also several restaurants that feature cheap and delicious food, some of them with delivery. My favorites are the Jamaican place and the Mexican taqueria around the corner.

Transportation:
The apartment is a 5-10 minute walk to the A, B, C and D trains, the A and D being express during rush hours, and a 5-10 minute walk to the 1 train. Getting to anyplace in Manhattan or Brooklyn is very convenient - 15 minutes to Columbia University, 20 minutes to Midtown, 30 minutes to Lower East Side, 30 minutes to Williamsburg.

There are also a number of buses nearby, including the M35 which takes you down along Central Park all the way to Grand Central Station, and the M100 and M101 which easily get you to the East side.

  • Didn't get a chance to meet Jed, but had a great stay at his place! The room was exactly as advertised, very clean, and the balcony was lovely. His place is very conveniently located near the train station, and it was very easy to get around all weekend. Thanks for letting us stay Jed!

  • This was my husband's and my first time in NYC and we found Harlem to be an interesting and safe neighborhood. Jed, our host, was friendly and accommodating. As we are seniors, the climbing of several flights of stairs, with bags, was a challenge, but Jed kindly helped with the heavy ones on the way up. We parked conveniently in front of the building. The highlight was the balcony, with hammock, which I used both at night and in the morning. The bed could have more padding, but I worked it out. Thank you Jed for your hospitality and assistance finding directions and addresses.

  • We enjoy our stay in New York. The apartment was comfortable and well located. The only problem was the key box which was very difficult to open. When we were leaving we were unable to open it, and so we left the key with the neighbor downstairs. Sorry for that. We had to leave for the plane.

  • Very nice stay at Jed's place! Totally worth recommending :)
    We will miss NYC 145th street subway stop :)

  • Jed was very friendly and an excellent host!

  • I enjoyed my stay with Jed. My stay was very short, just overnight, but the room was clean, comfortable and I slept very well. I should also mention that the room was large enough to do some work at a table rather than on the bed. Jed was warm and friendly. I would definitely stay there again.

  • It was a really nice stay. I stayed there for 9 days because I needed to find a room for the next six months in Manhatten. He even let me stay one day longer when I had some problems with finding the right room in time. Super nice and easy going experience!

    I can really recommend this place. You feel safe and it's not far from public transport.

  • Jed was great. He gave us our space but was also there to answer any questions I had. My boyfriend and I would absolutely stay there again.

    February 2014
  • Jed (and brother Matthew) were on the spot to help with luggage up two flights of stairs. Top floor flat was light-filled, spotlessly clean and cozily warm despite record-breaking cold. Our room was perfect with ample floor and drawer space, inviting access to back deck, comfy love seat and queen bed, as well as small table with three chairs. (Only downside: bring your own salt for icy front stoop with no safe handholds if you visit in winter.) All in all, Jed's place was a great launching pad for our wonderful NYC week! Thank you brothers and we hope to be there again.

About
Hi! Nice to meet you. I heard about AirBNB through a friend, and have been in love with the website ever since. Five things I can't live without? Family, friends, live music, home cooked food, and the sun! I've been overseas a handful of times, but I'd have to say my two favorite destinations are Valencia, Spain and Seoul, South Korea, mostly because I developed the deepest and most cherished friendships there. Some of my other favorite trips were to Puerto Rico, Paris, and Thailand. When I travel, I enjoy interacting with the people I meet much more than sightseeing or attractions. I'd rather spend a day in a park than waiting in lines and taking pictures of famous buildings. I've had incredible travel experiences, and have met amazing people along the way everywhere I've gone. I'd like to help make your travel experience to NYC as special as possible. Let me know if there's anything I can do to help!
