Situated in West Harlem, this apartment in a traditional brownstone building is warm (outside is minus 8 F), well equipped and very easy to live in. The owner, Milton, met us on arrival, after he had been very easy to communicate with leading up to our trip. The apartment is fully self contained, so you can shop locally and cook at home, or try the local eateries such as Mannas soul foods. Subway is a 10 minute walk, convenience stores and a supermarket are a few minutes away. Its a fascinating area: try the local free walking tour for starters. Good internet and bathroom with a hot shower.
Stayed here for a week and had a great stay! It was a great apartment for our needs and requirements. Loved having the Wifi and coffee machine to enjoy. Had everything that we really needed for our stay and really enjoyed coming home after a day in the city to this apartment. Was in a very convenient location, only a few blocks to the subway. The subway had an express line of just two stops to Times Square which took about 12mins. Milton the owner met us and provided a very warm and friendly welcome and also lots of handy tips and information. A most pleasant and happy stay thanks!
Second floor flat in old Harlem. Price was good for two bedrooms, and we could spread out a bit. Air Condtiioners worked well. Unit is across the street from several block size housing project that can a bit noisy late in the evening. Close to subway at 127th street (5 block walk). Short walk to local grocery, several local eateries. There's a new Whole Foods within a reasonable walk, so area is in "pre-gentrification mode." Would not suggest staying with children as neighborhood is a little intimidating, but we felt perfectly safe during the day and early evening.
Location in upper Harlem is a little too far from Central Park to take advantage without a subway ride. Apollo Theatre is three blocks away.
Miltons apartment was great for our family of five adults. The location on edge of Harlem was no problem and we felt comfortable travelling on subway till late at night. There are three subway stations in easy walk so you dont need a car.
Plenty of room for all of us and the facilities were great.
Milton was a great source of of local information about eating etc..
Would recmmend thi stay to anyone looking to get a real feel for New York
