'VERY IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VISITORS: Our property is a single family home. As such it is NOT subject to the new New York law, signed by the Governor this summer, that prohibits the short-term rental of housing units. That law only applies to buildings, such as every apartment building in NYC, containing 3 or more 'dwelling units' (i.e., separate apartments). Our home is not covered by this law because it is a single family unit, and therefore our rentals are completely legal. You may therefore be assured that renting from us will not be in violation of any laws and that you are at no risk of being unable to occupy the premises because the authorities have taken legal action against the property owner.'

Why Joyce Roquemore Hanly chose Harlem

We love Harlem and it is so convenient to all the sites in New York. We are only two blocks to the express train to Times Square. It takes less than twenty minutes to get to Times Square. All tourist attractions are convenient and there is lots to do right here in the neighborhood. It is safe, historic and family oriented. The neighbors are wonderful. It is located in the heart of the Mount Morris Park historic district, very quiet and neighborly. People say hello to each other on the street, a unique feature for New York.

What makes this House unique

The bedrooms are very private, quiet and large. Church bells ring on the weekends, birds sing in the garden. The kitchen is state of the art. There is a piano. I offer complimentary coffee, artisanal teas and biscotti.I currently offer a walking tour of Harlem to help you orient to the neighborhood and become familiar with the landmarks and local need to know locations. We also have a private driver with high quality pick ups from airports or driving tours of New York. Price upon request.
