The Space

This is a great studio apartment right in the heart of West Harlem, on a quiet, tree-lined street in what is know as the historic Sugar Hill neighborhood. The apartment is in an old brownstone in the back of the house so it is quiet and peaceful. The C subway line is just around the corner and the 1 subway line is only a few blocks away. It is also accessible to several buses and you can easily get a car/sedan by walking to the corner.

The apartment has AC and heat, Internet/WiFi, all the basics you need for cooking, and fresh linens and towels will be provided. The bathroom has a shower/tub combination with fantastic water pressure. I also have the only access to the backyard of the house (which right now is a work in progress--table and chairs coming soon!--but nice if you want to step outside for a moment or have a smoke--the apartment is smoke free).

The neighborhood has some great corner places and bodegas for easy food shopping and is known for its Dominican food that you can find by walking a couple blocks in any direction. There are laundromats within a couple blocks so if you are staying for longer, doing your laundry is no problem. The apartment is a short walk from the Hudson River promenade, Riverside park, City College, and scenic Convent avenue. Also easy to get to either of Columbia University's campuses.

If you drive into the city, there is street parking available that is usually easy to find. And it is free! with no meters in the area. (However, you do have to pay attention to the park signs for the days/times for street cleaning.) But with the subway so close, you definitely do not need a car.

I love my apartment, its location, and its vibe. NYC is a great city to explore and I'm happy to share it with you.

  • I spent 20 days in Jennifer's place with my boyfriend, we loves this neighborhood and we use to come pretty often in New York City.Actually among the many homes we rented in NYC Jennifer's place was the one that best suits our needs.
    It is sufficently spacious for a couple, has a well equipped kitchen, a private garden, WiFi, AC ( wich we didn't use because the flat is well ventilated naturally) and tere are plenty of good books.
    It is simply but elegantly furnished ( maybe there are a couple of staffs to fix-nothing of very important) and it is really close to the subway C train and there are also A,B,D trains in a few blocks)
    I didn't meet Jennifer personally, but she was always easely accessible by email.
    We would like to come again pretty soon!

  • Really cute flat with it's own terrace. The area that the flat was in was fine if you were just walking from the subway to the flat. Neighbours did not disturb us at all. At night it seemed like you could hear the subway trains passing underneath but the noise was not distracting. Great place to stay for a short visit!

    Jen is very helpful and takes the time to answer any questions and make you feel at ease. She has a solution for every possible challenge!

  • Hola, soy de Barcelona. Jennifer es una anfitriona excepcional, es puntual, atenta, dispuesta y muy simpática.Ayuda y resuelve los posibles inconvenientes que puedan surgir.El apto.tiene ventajas y son que tiene wifi y esta bien situado a una esquina del metro (estacion 155 St. de la linea C).Llegas al centro de Manhattan en 10-15min. Para dos personas es acogedor y tiene incluso terraza. Está situado en Harlem y para dormir esta bien, pero de noche es algo inóspito. El apto.tiene un super a varias calles (algo alejado).Es un apto.correcto pero la limpieza no es su punto fuerte así que si no es lo que más te importa está bien, es correcto y económico. Con Jennifer la comunicación es muy buena en eso no habrá problemas con seguridad (sobretodo por mail -pero en inglés, claro).Muchas gracias por todo Jen. Vives en una ciudad asombrosa. New York es una maravilla!

  • Had a wonderful stay at Jennifer's apartment. Very clean and she had everything that my sister and I needed. It's also very close to the C-line subway so getting into other parts of the city was a breeze!

    Jennifer was also very easy to communicate with and we only had one small issue which was quickly fixed :). Overall, I would stay at Jennifer's place again.

After years as a policy professional in DC I've decided to go back to school in NYC. As a host, I'm welcoming, flexible, and easy to work with. As a guest, I also rent my apartment on airbnb so will be respectful and easy on your space, leaving it just like I found it.
