Your own private Harlem hideaway. A quiet dreamy oasis for your busy New York stay. Enjoy life in an 1895 brownstone in one of the city's most charming historic neighborhoods. NOTE: This is just one of four unique units in the building. We also have a Garden Apartment, Studio Apartment and Guest Room.

The Parlor is a fully furnished one bedroom apartment 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.

This apartment features 12' ceilings, modern furnishings and professionally designed accents. All lights are on dimmer switches to provide an intimate setting. There is a color video buzzer/intercom system for guest entry.

The living room has a 46'' swing-out, wall mounted LED flat screen television and DVD player as well as a remote control radio/iPod player with playlist of blues and jazz. Wireless Internet access is also provided. Original over-sized photographic artwork creates a dramatic focal point. Enjoy sitting in the vintage government-issued dentist chair. The leather sofa folds out to become a super comfortable memory foam queen-sized bed, the highest quality available. The well-stocked bookshelf provides eclectic reading. Original shutters fold out for privacy.

The kitchen features stainless steel appliances: large refrigerator with auto ice maker, dishwasher, four burner gas range with oven and a built-in microwave/fan. Also provided are a blender, toaster, coffee maker, dishes and flatware, glassware and mugs, cooking pots and pans and utensils. There are plenty of cabinets with under-counter lighting. Dishwasher detergent is provided, as well a filtered water pitcher.

The washer and dryer is next to the bathroom. Detergent is provided. The cabinet next to it holds bedding, extra towels, an iron as well as plenty of storage space.

The bathroom has a vintage claw-foot bathtub with shower option, as well as hamper, hair dryer, exhaust fan, hairspray and room spray in the cabinet.

The bedroom is accessible though beautiful sliding pocket doors with intricate woodwork above. The art deco wood wardrobe has ample size as well as drawers and trouser hangers. Original wood paneling and fireplace add charm to the bedroom. The memory foam queen bed features a vintage reading light and is next to the window, providing gentle garden breezes. A variable speed overhead fan adds to the luxury. Shelves hold a small library along with a clock radio/iPod player. The large windows also house original fold-out shutters for privacy, although you will love the view of the beautiful private garden below nestled under sheltering birch trees.

You also have access to the beautifully landscaped shared backyard.

Have a larger party or prefer a smaller unit? Check out Harlem Hideaway Studio, on the same floor (Home Away # 982538) or the Harlem Hideaway Guest Room (Home Away #993020) on the top floor. Both sleep two. Or you could also try the Garden Apartment (Home Away #3634519) that sleeps four.

About Dennis Decker

An enthusiastic New York and Harlem resident, always ready to give the inside scoop and recommendations on Harlem or NYC. Very involved in the neighborhood. A product, landscape and interior designer with numerous awards and items in national museums. In fact, the building has also been published in several magazines and appeared in films. A world traveller, as I flew for Pan Am for over 7 years. Partner at the popular Harlem Shake, a restaurant I designed.

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Harlem Hideaway was a fantastic choice for our home away from home. Dennis is amazing and was helpful throughout the entire process. We are sad to be leaving and cannot wait to return.

We had a great time @ the Red Rooster our first night and the breakfast wraps @ Cafe Latte are a must!

Good Value, Nice Place

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed the Parlor Apartment. Very comfortable bed, good shower, neat neighborhood, convenient to the Subway, and just a few blocks away from Central Park. Had breakfast one morning down the street at Harlem Shake. Had dinner one night a few blocks over at Harlem Pizza. Both delicious! The apartment and the neighborhood are full of personality. I'd recommend this spot to anybody.

A Clean Ecelectic Apartment... in a historical neighborhood.

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect apartment for our extended stay. The apartment really worked well for the 3 of us. The clean, well-equipped kitchen has everything needed... and having a washer & dryer was certainly a plus. The apartment is very convenient to the subway making the entire city accessible. We loved the eclectic furnishings coupled with the beautifully restored 1890's brownstone. Dennis goes over everything with you when you arrive... and is always near & available when needed.

Thank you Dennis!
