Hamilton Heights townhome description

This is a generous garden apartment in a classic brownstone on a great, safe block in vibrant West Harlem. Everyone who has stayed has loved it (see reviews)!
It features all new renovation with quality, classic rustic furnishings, lots of room and beautiful details: deco fireplace, wood floors, exposed brick, all tiled kitchen and bath, all new premium fixtures, central air, radiant heat. In season, the peaceful, landscaped outdoor patio affords a wonderful respite and place to relax in between outings or for a nice coffee in the morning.
The apartment is can be used as a luxury getaway for 2, or is also spacious enough to sleep up to 6 with plenty of room to not feel cramped. Perfect for families or a great share for 2 couples, with direct access to the bathroom and kitchen from both rooms with privacy.
Only a 5-minute walk to 5 different subways to all tourist destinations: A, B, C, D, and 1 trains, 2 stops to midtown, and there are several bus stops on the corner leading directly to Museum Mile, Central Park, and all over.
We are in a classic Harlem neighborhood, a former residence of Alexander Hamilton, with beautifully detailed historic homes to view, great new restaurants, cafes and craft beer pubs right around the corner, easy access to all of Manhattan and the rest of the city. The subways are lively late at night so recommended even into the wee hours, and the parking is easier than in most of the city (we can guide you to free street parking on the block). Plenty of grocery shopping nearby. We live on the premises in the rest of the brownstone and can provide directions, restaurant advice, babysitting, anything needed.
West Harlem is a magical neighborhood so convenient to the rest of Manhattan yet with a history and a feel all its own. We are 2 stops away from midtown, but on a beautiful block with trees and up on a hill, where you can feel the sea breeze from the Hudson, and can walk down to the river's edge for a picnic or get to a bike path that can take you all the way down to lower Manhattan.
We are close to several historic sections such as Hamilton Heights landmark district, Sugar Hill, Striver's Row. We are so close to many major teaching institutions such as Columbia University, City College, Barnard, Teacher's College, Jewish Theological Seminary, Manhattan School of Music, Columbia Presbyterian. We are very near some gorgeous sights such as The Cloisters, St. John the Divine, Fort Tryon Park, and to such landmarks as the Apollo Theater.
It is a diverse and vibrant area with plenty of history and charm, a great vantage point from which to explore the whole city.
