About the Property
1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 3 beds, Classic Double mattress and boxspring
IMPORTANT TO KNOW: Our entire floor through apartment is designed as an open loft, which means there are no interior walls separating the living space and the bedroom. This is especially appealing to design savvy couples and families with small children. Some guests put the Deco screen between the beds, and while this does afford some privacy it is not a full wall.
FULLY AIR CONDITIONED: Central Air Conditioning
No smoking in or near the apartment 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 in Midtown. We can reach Times Square 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:: Both 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.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
