Overview

About the property

Townhome, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

We are conveniently located only 3 blocks from the #1 Subway Line and 5 blocks to the ABCD lines, so you can easily and inexpensively do all the sightseeing and theater-going you want, then retreat to the safety and comfort of your own spacious brownstone, away from the hubbub of downtown.

Our apartment is tastefully furnished with a fully equipped kitchen, bed-linens, towels, everything you need to make you feel at home. Staying in a turn-of-the-century Brownstone in New York City is an authentic experience in itself. We have beautiful art on the walls, great books in our bookcase, and wireless internet for entertainment and business. A coin-operated laundry is also in the building or several laundry shops within 2 blocks.

Located on 142nd Street between Broadway and Amsterdam, our brownstone in only 3 blocks from CCNY, a major New York University famous for the large number of Nobel Prize Winner graduates. Some of the most beautiful Brownstone Streets in the City are located in this neighborhood as well as many excellent coffee shops such as Chipped Cup, Hamilton's, Cafe One, and restaurants like The Grange, Trufa, NoBo, Anchor Wine Bar, and Dinosaur BBQ.

AND the greatest grocery in the world: Fairway Market. Riverbank Athletic Park, located 3 blocks away, is a 17 acre athletic complex with full track, tennis courts and indoor pool.

You will enhance and enrich your New York City experience by staying in our brownstone.

New York is a City with a thousand neighborhoods, each authentic, each different from the next. New Yorkers consider this the Center of the Universe, and rightfully so.

Whether your passion is theater, the arts, sports or finance, or Botanical Gardens, you will find the very best the world has to offer in New York City.

Visiting here is something you will never forget, whether you do it once in a lifetime or come for your New York City Fix every few months. And staying in our brownstone apartment will give you a sense of neighborhood authenticity you will never find in a downtown hotel.

About Darlyn

My husband was a sea-captain for many years, traveling through Asia, Europe, South America, the Middle East and Africa. He loved cities, culture and travel. New York was always a favorite of his and we wanted our own place in the city to call home.

Darlyn purchased this townhome in 1998

Why Darlyn chose Harlem

Because Harlem and Hamilton Heights has so much history.

What makes this townhome unique

Broadway, Opera, Theater, Dance, Ballet and an easy subway ride to The Botanical Gardens and to The Cloisters. The world class art museums and restaurants are easy to access. Experience the incredible energy and people of this fabulous City.

A Harlem Brownstone with 2 fireplaces and 11 foot ceilings.

Great comfortable neighborhood with great access!

  • 5 of 5

This area continues to get better and more comfortable with nice restaurants and bars.

I liked walking down along the Hudson to Fairway Market and then on to Dinosaur BBQ.

After dinner I just got on the subway at 125 and BRDWY and whizzed home. Also discovered a classic little Italian restaurant at LaSalle and Broadway --I think it was Pisticci's.

Owner's Response: Yes -- with Columbia University expanding now up to 135th and the beautiful CUNY campus just across Broadway and up to the East, there is a lovely diversity to the neighborhood of Hamilton Heights. The apartment is 3 blocks from the #1 subway so access to the entire city is easy.

Wonderful brownstone!

  • 5 of 5

Very cute with an adorable neighborhood! The building is quite old, but has a historical charm, and is kept up very well. We loved our few days here!

Was fine overall. Neighborhood a little different than expected but grew on us thru the week.

  • 3 of 5

Noise of upstairs neighbor coming and going thru the night was a bit bothersome, but the unit was entirely suitable for an apartment in Harlem.

Great slice of New York!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay, comfortable, all the amenities of home. Felt very safe here. Be sure to leave yourself some time to wander around the neighborhood. We did a little bit, but wish we had given ourselves more time. City College is close by, Alexander Hamilton's house, parks, churches (didn't know there were so many churches...and beautiful ones...in New York city). We never took the subway from here, but took Uber and Lyft and it was really convenient. Easy access to LaGuardia, too. When you first arrive, especially if it's at night, be sure to have a flashlight though so you can see the numbers on the lock box. Thank you, Darlyn, for having this beautiful brownstone available. (Oh, and to use the TV, make sure the modem is on. We never used the TV anyway because there's just too much to do!) We would definitely stay here again.

Quiet lovely, sweet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

It was lovely. Clean and comfortable. Very cool neighborhood. Alexander Hamilton's home is a 5 minute walk away. He's on Broadway for crying out loud! Who doesn't love that?

But seriously, we hope to comeback.
