About kerolayn cofsky
From Beacon Hill to Sugar Hill, we are two generations continuing our family's legacies in Harlem. We garden: nurturing the peonies brought from China as wedding gifts to our maternal great-great grandparents in 1880. We create: she is an art historian who restores old houses and fine art textiles and he creates everything from concept to product to the 'buzz' for the next new idea in the men's fashion industry. You'll stay in his top floor pied-à-terre since he is now often in Hong Kong, Boston or on the West coast. Yes, we love jazz: he specializes in early jump blues and the evolution of early Black rock n' roll. No, we don't cook but are very successful reservation and suggestion makers, having enjoyed the treasures of this city for the last 4 decades.

Carolyn is a lovely host, with excellent communication, tips on the local area and helping to address any of our requests. The location was close to subway, 10min walk to the Yankee Stadium and close to local amenities.
New York experience
The apartment is furnished in accordance with period of building. The beds are comfortable and my children all slept well. The view is great and the area, for us, was perfect. Would definitely come back and refer to friends.
New York New York
Close to subway 2 minute walk. Clean apartment and quiet tenants. Love the old brownstone and history
Charming and spacious
We had a wonderful stay at Carolyn’s upper Harlem brownstone for 5 nights. Growing up in NYC I would not have thought of staying on the Harlem/Washington Heights border but times change and the neighborhood is now safe and beautiful. The brownstone is on a quiet block (for NYC) although there is some entertaining jockeying for spaces on alternate street parking mornings. Lots of families live in the neighborhood leading to lots of grocery/pharmacy, etc options for your needs during a longer stay. We got to explore new bagel shops (Bo Bagels) and new restaurants. The apartment itself is charming and comfortable. Lots of character and beautifully furnished. Carolyn is a responsive and charming hostess who lives at the property. Apartment looks like the photos. We recommend the apartment and the neighborhood.
Fantastic Place In NYC For Families
My family of 7 just returned from a week in New York where we stayed at Carolyn's place. It was absolutely perfect. There was plenty of space for all of us. The location is also perfect as it is a very short walk to the subway and it was only a 20 minute ride to Midtown. If we ever make it back to New York I would definitely stay here again.
Perfect in every way!
We spent 5 nights in Carolyn's Sugar Hill apartment on a family trip to New York for our daughter's graduation from Columbia Univ. This apartment has the charm and features that one would expect from a 100+ year old 3rd floor walk up. brownstone. The location is great and is right around the corner from the train station which we utilized every day. The family area is spacious with plenty of room for the 6 adults in our group. There is a beautiful large, square marble table for dining. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything we needed. We were concerned that one bathroom would be an issue but we made it work. The beds are adequate for a short stay. Carolyn is extremely attentive and easily accessible when needed and is always a text message away. She provided suggestions for sites to see in New York and recommendations for how to get around the city. Thank you Carolyn for your hospitality!
The C & A metro station (155th & St. Nicholas) is around the corner. Connects with the B & D one stop away (7 walking blocks - 5 minute walk); the 1 train is 3 blocks distance (W 157th & Broadway). Excellent bus and subway transportation (A,B,C,D,1,9) to both east and west sides and to and from all three airports; Columbus Circle is 11 minutes away and midtown is 20 minutes away via the metro located around the corner. Via metro, JF Kennedy Airport is approx. one hour, Newark approx. 1.5 hours and LaGuardia 1 hour by city bus.
The apartment is located on the norther portion of Manhattan. Midtown is 20 minutes away, downtown and Soho about 30-40 minutes. The subway runs 24 hours and returning late in the evening is a comfortable and safe commute.
