The Harlem Hideaway Studio is fully furnished and located in Uptown Manhattan, in Harlem, New York City. The apartment is on the 1st floor of a landmarked private brownstone townhouse in the Mount Morris Historic District.
The all-white interior with 12' ceilings and a view of a tree filled leafy garden will instantly put you in a peaceful mood.
Enter from the front stoop through the ornate carved wood entry arch and you will feel like you have just stepped back 100 years in time. All original oak details which show the charm of gently worn history. Go straight ahead to your own apartment through the 10' entry door.
This Studio Apartment is very special from the time you open the door. The 12' ceilings create a special ambience and all-white room direct you to look out at the beauty of the peaceful private nicely landscaped back garden to which you have full access. Since it is in the back of the building you hear no street noise.
The apartment is furnished with high end furniture, such as an original leather Corbusier sofa and raw steel full length mirror, a queen size bed (memory foam mattress) and bed stands. Also a 42'' screen mounted TV pivots out for viewing anywhere in the apartment. The bed area is carpeted for a more lush intimate feeling. The radio/iPod player holds an iPod filled with Harlem Hideaway playlist of jazz and blues. Books of New York and Harlem are provided, as well as current issues of Time Out Magazine to let you know what is currently happening in the city.

The refrigerator has a filtered water pitcher. Eat on authentic colorful fiestaware plates under the huge oversized pendant light next to the original massive black and white blow-up from a vintage science book.
Check out the quirky items in the metal glass display case and you may laugh. Linens, towels, iron/board are provided, as well as lending umbrellas.
A 3 speed overhead ceiling fan and quiet built-in air conditioner/heater will add to your comfort, as well as separate adjustable bedside lamps.

Dennis Decker purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Dennis Decker chose Harlem
This building is typical of the historic neighborhood. I was impressed that it still retained so much of its original form and material. However, I was very impressed by the atmosphere of the block, with friendly, open and involved neighbors.
What makes this Apartment unique
The quiet friendly tree-lined street, proximity to express subway- only 4 stops to Times Square, closeness to neighborhood coffee shop and historic park, as well as the 125 St. corridor and Central Park. I actually love sitting on the front stoop while having a coffee or a glass of wine. I love seeing the relaxed street life going by, and being a part of it. Since my block is dominated by private brownstones, rather than apartment buildings, it has a friendlier, small town feeling than most other neighborhoods.

I ALWAYS stay at Harlem Hideaway when I visit NYC. Dennis is such a pleasant, professional, accommodating host. The property has easy access to subway to get anywhere in the 5 Burroughs quickly. There are tons of restaurants, wine stores, and delis close by. It's like being at home away from home and I'm from TEXAS!!!!
My Harlem Hideaway Exprience
An absolute treat to be able to visit NYC and stay in a beautiful brownstone. Very Clean with great amenities such as, towel service, fully stocked kitchen with a full size refrigerator, a very comfortable large bed, large tv, cable, music, and lots of closet space. There's great art work uniquely placed throughout the brownstone. Truly a home away from home and I had an awesome time relaxing here. I'll definitely be back.
Thank you Harlem Hide Away!
We had a lovely stay at the Harlem Hideaway. Beautifully furnished, more than comfortable bed, great host and awesomely positioned. Easy walk to restaurants and subway. 9 blocks south the the Northern end of Central Park. We highly recommend this property.
Perfect apartment with great restaurants around
We really enjoyed our stay in Dennis' apartment which looks exactly as on the pictures. The street is nice and quiet, but everything you need is there: supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants and bars for everybody's taste! Around Halloween time when we were there, the houses were imaginagery decorated. After long trips through NY we really appreciated the great and comfortable mattress and clean bet linen. We will be back for sure! Thank you, Dennis for everything! S&A
Harlem Hideaway was definitely the perfect choice
I consider having been able to stay at a brownstone such as Dennis's a real privilege. The Studio is beautifully decorated, quiet, equiped with a bag full with useful information and within walkable distance of many of the places you are surely interested in visiting. Of course staying in Harlem implies having a whole different outloook of New York, and that was welcome to! To sum it all up, I sure hope I'll come back to Harlem Hideaway ...
Everything we needed
Comfy, nice neighborhood, great walking and we loved our little apartment. It had all we needed. Dennis was very thorough in all the details of the rental and the area.
