Why Katrin Zimmermann chose Harlem
Harlem is my love. Since I was a kid, I thought of Harlem as this great, multi-cultural place- and I was not wrong! Anyone who lives in Manhattan would love to live here, with our beautiful old townhouses and lush gardens!
What makes this Apartment unique
This house was a blank canvas when we bought it- nothing to stop my implementing my ideas of a modern, clean, high-end designed home.

Harlem Garden Apartment
The apartment was exactly as pictured on the website. The bed was comfortable and the towels provided were nice. We enjoyed the Mexican restaurant on the corner. The property was close to the subway, which made it easy to get around the city.
Comfort in Harlem
This place was great! It was roomy and clean. The AC window unit provided a much needed reprieve from the heat when we came in from a busy day out in the hot sun. The large bathtub was wonderful for soaking and relaxing -- which I did every day! Katrin was very helpful and responded quickly to our questions and needs.
We really enjoyed the nearby restaurants-- especially the amazing pizza at Sottacasa, the French food at Barawine and the Italian fare at Settepani. Lowes foods was a few blocks away and it was great to have breakfast in the apartment before going out onto the bustling streets.
The subway was close by as was the bus line. We were glad that we bought the 7 day metro card which made it easy to get anywhere in the city via bus or subway. Central Park was a nice walk away and Harlem was a great location because it was relatively quiet and wasn't full of tourists!
We would definitely return to this lovely apartment!
Happy in Harlem
This spacious apartment is well-equipped and attractive. We had lunch al fresco when the weather allowed, had excellent meals out in local restaurants, found a favourite coffee shop, spread out on the king bed, put the dishes in the dishwasher ... Harlem Art Apartment truly does feel like a home away from home, in a fabulous part of the world.
Wonderful week in NYC
We stayed at Katrin’s place because of its proximity to Columbia. We came to NYC to celebrate our daughter’s graduation from Columbia, and it was great to easily walk to campus. The apt is convenient to the subway which made it easy to explore many other neighborhoods as well. The apt is well represented in the pictures and Katrin was super easy to work with.
Wonderful home in Harlem
We had an extended stay for a few months at the apartment this winter and spring while waiting for our condo to be complete. We couldn't have been happier to find such a comfortable and well-appointed place to call home. The apartment itself is as pictured: very clean and modern and fully equipped for a short- or long-term stay. Katrin has decorated it beautifully with art throughout. We especially loved the comfortable king size bed and large dining table for hosting friends and family for a meal. There is also a lovely private garden out back, which is a treat in NYC!
The apartment is situated on a quiet tree-lined brownstone street in Harlem, very close to local restaurants, grocery stores, and subway lines to get downtown quickly (the 2/3 express is only a couple blocks away at 116th). It is convenient while also being very quiet for sleeping at night.
Katrin is a gracious host and is available to answer any questions or provide help if needed. Check-in was simple.
We would highly recommend staying here whether you are visiting NYC for the first time, you have been to NYC before and are looking for a break from the midtown craziness, or if you are locals like us that just need a temporary place to call home!
Very nice place to stay.
The owner is a very nice person to deal with. She has decoreated the apartment with various nice drawings, some made also by herself. The apartment is very spacious, good for a couple or three people, it is well funrnished, all appliuances work very well.
I was there for about a month, moving from the faomus Upper West, but I wish I could have stayed longer this artistic apt of Harlem!
Harlem is the most happening neighborhood in New York right now! Have you eaten at Red Rooster? Have you listened to Jazz at Cecil's? Have you gone to church at St. John the Divine? Have you visited Columbia University? Have you seen the New York Marathon? Have you checked out Amateur Night at the Apollo? Have you biked around Central Park? Have you been to the Guggenheim? All these are within 15 walking minutes from our house!
