This is a generous garden apartment in a classic brownstone on a very attractive and great, safe block in vibrant West Harlem. It is super convenient to 5 subways and easy to get anywhere in NYC. Come to Hamilton Heights with Alexander Hamilton's former home right nearby! Live like a native!
Only 5-minute walk to 1 train and 8 minute walk to A, B, C, D, trains and express is 2 stops (to midtown -Columbus Circle- you can be there in 20 min from your front door), 3 stops to Times Square! There is also a bus that stops on the corner leading directly to Museum Mile, Central Park, The Cloisters, and all over.
This historic home has been completely renovated and upgraded, with quality, classic rustic furnishings, lots of room and beautiful original details: decorative fireplace, wood floors, as well as exposed brick, all tiled kitchen and bath, premium fixtures. There are plenty of nice linens and towels, high-speed internet, new Apple TV with HBO, Netflix, Hulu and more, great central AC that you can control, and cozy radiant heat when it's cold. The washer dryer means maybe you can get away with a carry-on only!
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 or a drink or meal in the evening. It also is like a second living room and provides a whole other place to sit and regroup. Even in colder months it is lovely to be able to have private outdoor space.
The apartment would be a luxury getaway for 2, with plenty of room to spread out, work, etc. Direct access to the bathroom and kitchen from both rooms, with maximum privacy. Please contact us for more details about the space and the possibilities.
We are in a classic Harlem neighborhood, 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, catering, 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.
Explore 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 Morris Jumel Mansion and 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.

Wonderful apartment in thriving neighborhood; a great find in the City
On-site owners catered to our odd arrival timing and responded to everything. Communication for detail was great. The apartment is large, comfortable and inviting in a neighborhood of families with great dining, easy access to the subway and walks right down either Broadway or Amsterdam to Columbia, Riverside Park or the Lincoln Center. Believe we lucked out finding this sweet spot.
We had a lovely time at Lauren and Peter's apartment in Hamilton Heights
Lauren and Peter's apartment is very comfortable and is located on a quiet residential street in Hamilton Heights. There are excellent neighborhood restaurants, and the subway is only a few short blocks away. Lauren and Peter are very helpful, and Lauren always responded in a timely way to emails. Thank you for a lovely stay!
Very roomy and comfortable!
This worked out great for us. 2 Adults, 4 kids (aged 8-16). It was charming and very clean and very well equipped. We were even able to park on the street the whole time. Not far from the subway at all. We were mostly sight seeing in the city and it was nice to have some space to spread out when we were there, which you can't do in NYC hotel rooms. We also liked having the convenience of a kitchen (with dishwasher!) and a washer and dryer in apartment. Getting to the subway wasn't bad at all, but it would have taken almost an hour round trip to do a "mid-day" rest with the little ones, so depending your itinerary, that may help you. It was fun to stay in a classic brownstone type place. We enjoyed the architecture, high ceilings, and plenty of light! Lauren was very helpful and responsive, easy to work with and very thorough! Would for sure stay again.
Thank you Tiffany and lovely family - much appreciated and please come back any time!!
Charming and vintage garden apartment with lots of space.
Lauren’s garden apartment was a perfect spot for our family of five to stay for four days. It is very charming and comfortable. Lauren makes every effort to make sure her guests have what they need to make their stay comfortable. I would definitely recommend!
it was a great cozy place, worked out well!
would have been nice to spend more than one night to explore the surrounding area.
Loved staying at this great apartment!
What a wonderful place to stay! My husband and I were in the city to visit family and this was the perfect place for us. The apartment was clean and spacious and furnished with everything we needed. Located on a very quiet street yet close to stores, restaurants, and transportation. The owners were quick to respond and so easy to work with. We will definitely stay here in the future!
There is swimming available at nearby Riverbank State Park, and there are amazing bike paths all the way up and down Manhattan. We are very near other attractions including The Cloisters, Abyssinian Church, St. John the Divine, Dinosaur BBQ, several nice local restaurants are available and a great new craft beer bar called Harlem Public.
