Hamilton Heights is an Historic residential area famed for some of its architectural gems. City College is right up the hill and we are within walking distance of Yankee Stadium.
A, B, C & D trains are around the corner on 145th St.
Checkout time is 11 A.M. sharp unless we have no further reservation, in which case we can be flexible. Please no parties or smoking. Please tidy up after yourself as best you can to help keep the price down - we will do the cleaning bu we just ask that you don't leave it a mess. Please keep the music and TV volume at a reasonable level. Check-in time is flexible, though for early check in we may just request that you drop off your bags, take the key and go out to enjoy the City while we clean.
Dans un quartier tranquille, l'appartement est lumineux. La description qui est faite de l'appartement est tout à fait juste, la cuisinette est toute équipée, ce qui est plaisant et permet de changer de style de menu de temps en temps ;-)
Les lits sont confortables (1 lit en 140 et 2 lits BZ en 90 mais très confortables). L'eau est bien chaude, et la maison bien chauffée. La station de métro est à 3 minutes à pied et permet d'arriver en 20 minutes à Times Square directement. De JFK, il faut compter 1h30 de transport (Airtrain puis métro ligne directe pour 28$ pour 4) et 30 minutes seulement en taxi pour 4 (58 dollars + 7$ de péage et les 20% de tips).
Sidney le propriétaire habite juste au dessus ce qui est très bien quand on arrive dans une grande ville où l'on ne connaît personne. Très sympathique, il sait répondre de façon très pratique aux questions qu'on se pose tous sur NYC, et il a su s'adapter à notre retard en arrivant. Et pour parfaire le tout, Sidney parle très bien le français!
En résumé, on est très content de notre séjour dans cet appartement.
Appartement parfait: propre, très bien situé, fonctionnel, commerces à proximité. Parfait pour un séjour d'une semaine à 4.
Sid has been a great host. He checked with us regularly to make sure we're comfortable and replied our questions promptly.
The unit and amenities are exactly as described. The unit is a block and a half away from the subway station and only a few stops away from midtown ("A" train is your best friend).
The neighbourhood was very alive and full of character (with many great cafes).
Sidney's place was exactly what I expected, a cozy one bedroom apartment, on the first floor of the building and very close to a subway station. Me and my dad stayed there for a week, with no inconveniences at all.
The apartment has everything anyone could need, except for a microwave, but we really didn't need it that much. Sidney was there on time to check us in and give us quick directions about everything. He even was attentive enough to leave us the coffee maker ready, and provide us with directions of the nearest super market and phone numbers of taxi services, which was very helpful.
Overall, we had a good time and left very pleased.
This comfortable first floor apartment is just 30mins away from Times Square via the subway. Neighbourhood is a very safe and quiet spot in Harlem. We go back often late at night and has never felt unsafe. Sid has everything included (except toiletries) to make us feel instantly comfortable and even bought us a new coffee machine when I accidentally broke the lid of his old one! A communicative and helpful host, indeed. I would definitely book with Sid should I visit NYC again！
Sid, is a great host. He helped us with tips and even some cash for the taxi when we arrived (don't take this as a general service :-) )
The location is also good since it is very close to the A/B/C/D lines on 145th street and enough shops/restaurants nearby.
All in all a comfortable stay for 2 persons during a week.
What a sweet place to stay! Sidney was very helpful and accommodating and the apartment was clean and tidy. The neighborhood is pretty quiet and is really convenient to the subway. We will be back!

My goal is to provide a private, safe, clean, convenient, inexpensive, comfortable, well-appointed and well-designed property for the traveler or the local person in need of temporary furnished housing. I am available when needed but I do not intrude on my guests. In addition to being an AIRBNB host and property owner in both New York and Vermont, I am a real estate agent by professsion and have a passion for matching people with properties. I am a lifelong New York City resident and know the City well - ask me for tips. I speak enough French and Spanish to assist travelers in those languages if need be. English is my primary language. I am a culinary enthusiast. Also I am a guitarist and love many kinds of music. I have recently re-started my music career so if you're interested you can check out Sid Whelan Band on Bandcamp, Twitter, Facebook or Reverbnation. My band is inspired by roots American music form before 1960, primarily blues but also folk, country, tin pan alley, jazz, early rock'n'roll and Broadway.
I like to run and have joined New York Road Runners. I know some good routes in the area for runners.
