Harlem (Central) apartment description

Welcome to our historic Harlem home.
See Video at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WUa922VSQdU
We’ve renovated our ground floor guest flat with the same luxury finishes as our home above, such as custom cherry cabinetry, honed granite counters, hardwood floors, original artwork, exposed brick and two decorative fireplaces. In this 600 square foot loft-like floor through, we’ve installed new high-end stainless steel appliances, offer copious closet space, and have added conveniences that we appreciate while away from home – we’re a journalist and a cinematographer who have worked all around the globe - such as a clothes washing machine and dryer, microwave, coffee maker, toaster oven, cable TV with premium movie channels including HBO, Broadband Internet – hardwire and Wi-Fi - a CD and DVD player, linens, dishes, glassware, pots and pans.
We have up to three beds to accommodate four people: Two double beds and a large single. NEW BED: One double is a high end 'regular' Classic mattress and boxspring. The single is a high end Aerobed with a headboard and seven firmness settings. We chose this over a standard bed to accommodate guests varying preferences: You can make the bed as hard or soft as you like. The second double bed is a convertible futon couch.
No smoking please.

There’s a food market right across the street, the cupboards are filled with staples such as jams, condiments, coffee and tea, and we’ll set up snacks and the first day’s breakfast so there’s no need to rush out shopping. You can arrive with little more than a toothbrush and a change of clothes.
SEE NOTES FOR DISTANCE TO EACH PLACE IN INSIDERS GUIDE.
Accessibility: Just three steps down with no interior stairs, this flat is accessible to seniors and people with somewhat limited mobility.

Location:: We’re a five-minute walk from a number of subway lines: A, B, C, D, 2 and 3, (the A and D are one express stop from Columbus Circle) which reach midtown in 20 minutes or less. The M10 bus, which runs down Manhattan’s West Side, stops 20 meters away on the corner of 8th Avenue, and the M2 bus, which runs down Fifth Avenue, stops on the 7th Avenue end of our block. Subways, buses and taxis run 24 hours/day. Yankee Stadium is 20 minutes by public transport.
Harlem Culture:: Historic and ahead of the curve. Best suited to young-spirited culture mavens, our all brownstone block in the heart of one of New York’s most intriguing emerging neighborhoods is surrounded by the kind of mom and pop businesses fast disappearing from other parts of town, such as rootsy inexpensive restaurants serving Caribbean, Latino, American Southern and African cuisine. This neighborhood of historic brownstones, some built by acclaimed architects such as McKim, Mead and White, is bursting with jazz haunts, famous spots from the 1940’s as well as no sign “neighborhood secrets,” which is quite the trend in New York these days.
