Property description

Your own private Harlem hideaway. A quiet dreamy oasis for your busy New York trip. Enjoy life in an 1895 brownstone in one of the city's most charming historic neighborhoods.

The Parlor is a fully furnished one bedroom apartment located in Uptown Manhattan, in Harlem, New York. The apartment is on the 1st floor of a private 4-story 1895 brownstone townhouse.

This apartment features 12' ceilings and 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. The iPod player is equipped with an iPod which has a Harlem Hideaway 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 sofa folds out to become a full-sized bed. The well-stocked bookshelf provides eclectic reading. Original shutters fold out for privacy.


The kitchen features stainless steel appliances: full size 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 and garbage bags as well as plenty of storage space.

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

The bedroom is accessible though beautiful sliding 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. Shelves hold a small library along with a clock radio/iPod player. The large windows also feature fold-out shutters for privacy, although you will love the view of the beautiful private garden below nestled under sheltering birch trees. A vintage oscillating wall fan is right across from the bed. Original sliding pocket doors keep the bedroom private.

You also now have access to the beautiful 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.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: 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.

Why the Owner Chose Upper Manhattan, New York, NY, USA:
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.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
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.
