Property description

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, cable TV 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, Cafe One, and restaurants like 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.
