Harlem (Central) townhome description

This beautiful, newly-renovated two-bedroom apartment is located in a famous residential neighborhood surrounded by historic architectural brownstone homes. Experience the diversity of contemporary Harlem and the culture, arts, and residents of this unique community that has influenced every corner of the globe. Enter the property from a quiet, tree-lined street, up three flights of stairs, into an apartment with modern amenities and appliances, charming decorative fireplace, hardwood bamboo floors, and furnishings from the owner's travels worldwide. The living room, bedrooms, dining area and full kitchen are equipped with free wireless Internet (WIFI), cable TV and international channels (TV5, RAI, BBC), top-quality, clean linens and all of the comforts and conveniences of home. The B & C subway lines (direct transfer to express A & D lines) are steps from your door on the corner. In 15 minutes you are in midtown: Columbus Circle/Times Square.


The Neighborhood: Harlem is a vibrant community, rich in arts and culture (The Apollo, Studio Museum in Harlem, St. Nick's Pub, Lenox Lounge, art galleries, The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture), historic architecture (Strivers Row, Astor Row, Hamilton Terrace, City College), cuisine (soul food, Ethiopian, French bistro, Dominican, contemporary American, Senegalese, Mexican, bakeries, Caribbean) and much more. Two blocks away, you will find 24/7 corner stores, Duane Reade (a citywide health and beauty chain store and pharmacy), and a Chase Bank with 24-hour ATMs. There are a number of takeout restaurants (Caribbean, Chinese, soul food) if you prefer to eat at home, and local bars (The Shrine and Londell's) where you are certain to meet local residents and fellow travelers.

Nearby Attractions: The apartment is within walking distance of Central Park, Columbia University, Grant's Tomb, the Riverside and Abyssinian churches and half a block from St. Nicholas Park where the newly reopened Alexander Hamilton House is located. The M3 Bus is located steps from the apartment and takes you to the East Side's Museum Row (El Museo, Museum of the City of New York, Guggenheim, Whitney and Metropolitan museums). The M10, also on the corner, takes you to the Upper West Side (Museum of Natural History, Columbus Avenue boutiques and restaurants, Lincoln Center, movie theaters, and Central Park).

Your Hosts: Your hosts are the property owners and they will ensure that your arrival is a smooth and comfortable experience. They have been providing vacation rental services and welcoming guests from all over the world for over four years. Having traveled, worked, and lived overseas, they enjoy meeting guests and providing them with all of the information at their disposal to make yours a memorable visit to New York City. Upon reservation confirmation, you will receive a package of information and referrals to assist with trip planning, and they are happy to share their insider knowledge of the city, recommendations for special events and discount shopping destinations, gospel churches, and trips to other boroughs and cities (Philadelphia, Boston, Washington DC). Families with children of all ages are welcome!

FOR GROUPS OF 7-8, the owners will rent both properties at this location (2-BEDROOM #927780 and STUDIO #922743) simultaneously.
