Hamilton Heights apartment description

Beautiful 2 bedroom apartment in a historic Harlem brownstone in famous Hamilton Heights (Sugar Hill) Harlem. Located in a lovely, quiet section of Harlem on a tree-lined street, this apartment is one block from the subway. Be part of the vibrant heart of Harlem, close to the home of Langston Hughes and the Alexander Hamilton Museum. Shop on famous 125th Street or dine out at Sylvia's after catching a show at the Apollo Theater.

Or perhaps you want a starting point for bicycling Manhattan: close to Riverbank State Park, where you can enjoy laps in the Olympic size pool or play tennis on the hill overlooking the Hudson. Tons of bike paths nearby, with a main artery into Midtown just a block away.

This apartment is one of three in the brownstone, it has hard wood floors, an old-style ceiling fan, and is nestled in the most beautiful block in Harlem. A very sunny 12 foot ceilings allow for floor to ceiling windows with stained glass that overlook the tree-lined street on one side and a garden on the other.

This home provides quick access to the subway one block away: within 10 minutes you are downtown and enjoying shopping, museums, or a show. Your hosts will be happy to help you plan an itinerary to maximize the sightseeing potential. Or, you can enjoy some downtime relaxing at a Manhattan Spa or dining out for brunch at one of the exciting new restaurants in Harlem, like Red Rooster.

The Apartment comfortably holds 4 people, and the neighborhood is very kid-friendly. No Pets allowed.
