Please respect the space and shut off lights and appliances when you aren't using them. If you cook please clean pots and pans immediately and dishes as well. If you break something please be ready to pay for or replace the item. Unless absolutely necessary please do not entertain in the basement next to where my room is because I work about 3 jobs and like to keep some level of privacy and comfort for you and for me. Also please with sugar on top do not smoke cigerettes in the apartment! You can go to the front of the building or go on the firescape. If you open windows please close them and lock them before you leave the house, also remember to shut off the air conditioner. Thank You in advance!
Great Room in a really lovely neighbourhood. After a bit of difficulty getting into the apartment, we had a great stay. Barbara was a helpful albeit absent host and answered all our questions about the apartment. The apartment is a great set up, with the bedroom, kitchen and bathroom on the top floor separate to Barbara's living space, which makes it feel like your own space. Boyfriend and friend were there a bit, very friendly if a bit messy (a number of unwashed dishes clogged up the sink). Other than that, a great place to stay. Definitely closer to the 1 metro than the A,B,C lines.
Very good for staying close to the city.
Convenient for Subway.
Plenty of stores close by.
Very good value for the money.
The place is okay. It is a small apartment. It is near the subway station. There are places to eat. Barbara is so nice! She always tries to help! The only problem I have is that when I stay there the room door was broken, so I cannot lock it.
Barbara's place is wonderfully convenient to the airports, and I felt most welcome there. Nearby restaurants, the great "A" line express subway and a comfortable place to stay with a great host. What more could you want?
It's a classic New York apartment -- which is to say, "small" -- but the bedroom is a generous size and well equipped with a wide-screen with a variety of program options. Barbara is a cheerful, welcoming and helpful host, familiar with her neighborhood and what it offers. The apartment is on the ground floor, so no need to use an elevator or stairs. It has a view of a fire escape and blank wall -- with a hint of the back yard -- but it's quiet. That lack of noise is unusual for New York, particularly when the apartment is just steps from Broadway, and in a lively, safe neighborhood. It's less than a five-minute walk to a stop on one of the main north-south subway lines, #1, running south to Central Park, Midtown, Penn Station and all the way to the Financial District. The apartment is also a few minutes' walk to Riverbank State Park with magnificent views of the Hudson River.
Barbara was very accommodating and let us book the day of our stay. There are great travel guides and maps making the room tourist friendly. Best part was the tv and Netflix making for a relaxing evening after a long day in the city.
I am super awesome.. check me out on instagram & tweet me @thahoneyb

My family is from Mexico and I grew up in the US. I moved to NYC 5 years ago to attend FIT and work New York Fashion Week and other notable fashion and entertainment related events throughout the year. I love creative individuals!!
I love living in Harlem because there is so much flavor and diversity. I really enjoy working out by River Bank State park and also just reading and checking out the sights. I'm always working but when I'm not I really enjoy spending time with friends or just hanging out and watching movies.
If you stay with me and you like fashion, entertainment or the arts you will feel right at home and can do some major networking!
