The apartment is almost exactly as in the pictures, maybe a bit more spacious. It's in great condition and the owner provides you with everything you need, from shower gel to even beer!
The neighborhood is actualy much nicer than you would think, it being in Harlem. I've had no problems at all with the neighborhood, and the neighbors(including the owner and his wife) are probably some of the sweetest people I've ever met. You would be lucky to meet them!
You have a lot of shops, bars and restuarants within a couple of steps from the apartment and the 1 subway line goes from 138. street. So the location is really convenient.
To sum up: A great apartment in a convenient location that I would definitely recommend to a friend!
