The Space

One room with a large, private terrace, a full private kitchen and a full private bathroom in the heart of East Harlem "El Barrio" in New York City where you can experience all the city has to offer!

- completely private

- one double bed (full)

-safe area, near a police station
- short Walk to Central Park and Museum Mile-Museum of the City of New York and El Barrio Museum located 6 minute walk

To go out and enjoy the city, walk three blocks to Central Park and the Museum Mile. Walk 1 block to the Lexington Avenue buses. Walk 3 blocks to the #6 subway. And just walk to experience a variety of ethnic restaurants, fun bars, wonderful stores and real life in New York City.

And when you arrive back home, have a glass of wine or a dinner in the open-sky terrace.

Your place is located on the 4th floor of the building (walk-up). Your hosts will be nearby to help you navigate this great city, but you will never see them if you just want your privacy! And if you are into art, you will enjoy all the murals, artists and atmosphere this neighborhood has to offer.

Charming, you'll be happy here!

Guest Access

This is a private apartment, so the guests are able to access all areas of the studio and terrace.

Interaction with Guests

We are always available, but only see the guests when they knock on our door. So far we have had one wedding and a few walking tours with the friendliest guests.

The Neighborhood

Many people ask if this is a safe neighborhood. The answer is yes. It used to be tough, but these days residents are able to walk around here without worries.

The population is a mix of Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Dominicans, African American and all other different cultures that make New York a great city. A few blocks down is the Upper East Side, a more affluent neighborhood within walking distance. A couple of blocks to the west is the Museum Mile and Central Park.

Getting around

All transit options are available: subway, bus, taxi.

  • Excelente ubicación y depto muy luminoso, Tanya y Juan estuvieron atentos en todo momento para nuestra comodidad dándonos indicaciones para movilizarnos por el barrio y disfrutar nuestra estadía.

  • Muy bueno!!! El departamento es tal cual lo muestran las fotos y dice en la descripción, y lo que es importante, limpio. La cama más que cómoda! Ideal para descansar después de recorrer la ciudad.
    El barrio es tranquilo y seguro, lo cual es fundamental. En mi caso, me aloje en el departamento junto con una amiga, nosotras volvíamos tarde (entre las 3.00 / 4.00 am) y nunca tuvimos problemas.
    Juan y Tanya super amables, siempre atentos y ayudándonos en lo que necesitábamos, realmente estamos agradecidas por su calidez!
    La ubicación es buena, ya que esta a 3 cuadras del Subte.

  • Le foto rispondono in generale all'appartamento, che potrebbe andare bene per ospitare turisti se fosse più pulito.
    La zona ci ha dato un'impressione piuttosto negativa appena arrivati, poi però ci siamo abituati all'ambiente ed effettivamente non sembrava pericolosa.

  • We are independant travellers and for us, location and budget was most importantly. Tanya's place worked for us.. Close to subway meaning easy access to all the places we wished to visit in NY. Lots of supermarkets and cheap cafés nearby. Cool weather meant we didn't use the terrace. Juan was there when we arrived, and there to see us off. Was chatty and helpful.

  • Nous avons passé une très bonne semaine à New-York chez Tanya ! L'appartement est idéalement situé et très bien équipé ! Nous le recommandons sans hésitation.

    April 2014
  • Excelente! Muy bien ubicado sobre una de las avenidas principales, con el subte tan solo a 3 cuadras.
    Juan y Tanya hicieron todo lo posible para que nos sintiéramos cómodos y así fue. El lugar ademas esta muy bien equipado, desde la cocina hasta paraguas y secador de pelo, gracias Juan y tanya por estar en esos detalles que en un día de frió y lluvia como nos toco fue algo que nos ayudo mucho!! Ademas siempre estuvieron dispuestos a ayudarnos.

  • Such a great experience we shared with Tanya and Juan !
    We flew to NY from San Francisco at night and arrived at 6am in the morning, tired. Juan welcomed us already at 9am and we were able to let our suitcase already in the apartment.
    The studio is exactly what you expect and their terrace is lovely. We wished we could enjoy it more but the weather was a bit cold. I would recommend people to stay here when visiting NY. Tanya and Juan are really nice and welcoming, and were really helpful anytime.

  • We had a lovely stay at the studio of Tanya,
    She was very helpful and gave us detailed infos on how to get to her place, and after that we'd enjoy our holidays until the last minut!

    It's really an very affordable solution if you're looking for a flat in a nice neighborhood with all facilities around! It's a pity we could enjoy the terrace, March is still very cold in NY :)

About
I am an artist living and working in the same building where Terrace on Lex is located. I love to welcome people to New York City and make friends all over the world. I live with my husband, Juan, my son Julian and my nephew-son Jean-Carlos. 5 things I can't live without? My studio (across the hall from Terrace on Lex!), coffee (my 15 year old son said that at least I have something to get up for in the morning!), my family and friends (is that 2?) and New York City's museums and restaurants (that's another 2!). I hope I can be a helpful and friendly host, and look forward to meeting you when you stay at Terrace on Lex!
