HARLEM HIDDEN GEM! MANHATTAN 2 BR BROWNSTONE APT

Harlem Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Apartment - 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s) - 1 Bath - (Sleeps 4-6)

This is an ideal home base for a Manhattan vacation, especially for families. The apartment is located in Harlem on 129th Street, between 5th and Madison in a neighborhood of historic brownstones. A tree-lined block with a community garden and 2 playgrounds nearby. Private entrance on the ground level. The owners live above. Less than than a 10 minute walk to two major subway lines that take you to virtually all the major site-seeing venues in Manhattan. There is also a busline a block away that travels down 5th Ave. to Central Park, the Met and other museums.

The full kitchen and dining room means you can save money and have some relaxing meals at home during your vacation. A washer and dryer in the apartment means you can pack light-great if you have young children. A Pack-n-Play, booster chair or high chair are also available for your young ones. There are grocery stores, coffee shops, restaurants and shopping nearby. Everything you need for an affordable, exciting, yet relaxing New York vacation. All taxes and cleaning fees included in base price!

Community and Convenience: Our brownstone is located in Harlem, which is at the northern end of Manhattan. Harlem is truly a 'community' within a large city. Neighbors know each other and come out on their stoops to say hi. Most buildings are less than 10 stories, so you can see the sky rather than be surrounded by skyscrapers. Residents cultivate community gardens as well as their backyards. It has a friendly atmosphere that is different from many other Manhattan neighborhoods. Yet, our brownstone has very convenient access to see all of New York City's attractions in other neighborhoods. The M1 bus is one block away on 5th avenue and travels right alongside Central Park, The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim. The 4/5/6 subway (east side) is less than a 10 minute walk, and 42nd Street(Grand Central)is only 3 stops away. The 2/3 subway (west side) is also less than a 10 minute walk and Times Square is just 5 stops away(approx. 20 min).

Comfort: We travel often, and really appreciate staying in villas and homes where it's clear the owners care about our comfort and convenience. We try very hard to provide our guests with a comfortable, homey environment. There is a washer/dryer with detergent in the apartment, along with an iron/ironing board, and hair dryer. The bed linens are high quality and the kitchen is fully-equipped with microwave, blender, coffee maker, etc. as well as spices. The apartment has it's own thermostat and hot water heater, so your comfort is under your control. We live in the upper floors of the townhouse, so we are available for questions and directions as you need them. There is a phone with local service so you can book restaurant reservations, and call to make plans with others when you need to. We have provided a binder with listings of local grocery stores and restaurants. There is also wireless internet available if you like to travel with your laptop.

I grew up in Green Bay, Wisconsin and have lived in Minnesota, California and moved to New York City in 2003, when I married my husband. We have lived in Harlem for 10 years now, have 2 children, and love the fact that we can be close to all the wonderful things New York has to offer, yet have a wonderful space to retreat back to on a quiet block in a culture-rich area.

Jean Moreland purchased this apartment in 2001

My husband bought this brownstone in 2001, when it was a burned out shell with a tree growing up through the middle. He had always wanted to own a brownstone in Harlem. Many others were renovating at the same time, and we have forged a community of old and new.

This is a retreat away from the hustle of the tourist sites, where you will have two bedrooms, a full kitchen and laundry and space to relax in the living and dining areas. Yet you are still convenient to subway and bus lines that can get you to the sites quickly to enjoy all NYC has to offer!

BETTER THAN ANTICIPATED!

  • 5 of 5
This property was actually bigger then we thought it was! Very clean had everything we needed and we felt safe. We were provided with info on close restaurants, shopping, exc. we have young children and they were also very comfortable. We were provided a pack and play and a seat for our baby to eat in at the dining table. Linens were good quality and having the washer and dryer was a plus. We had a very comfortable and happy stay. Jean was very prompt with responding to emails and calls she was a wonderful renter. Overall we had a great stay and we are looking forward to coming back next year! Thank you Jean ur rental did feel like a home away from home!

Recommended for:  Families with Young Children
Owner's Response: Having traveled with our own kids many times, we definitely try to cater to family groups. We have a pack-n-play and booster seat available for young children, as well as some books and toys. The fact that we have 2 bedrooms and a sofa-bed, as well as dining space for 6 also makes it easier for families to relax after a long day of site-seeing.

IMPRESSIVE

  • 4 of 5
It was our first time using HomeAway and I'm so glad it was this property. Jean, the owner was professional and very nice. The place was clean and very well maintained. For most of our meals, we stayed in Harlem. The food was wonderful! We went to the Red Rooster and Chocolate - Both wonderful restaurants. It was very easy to get down to Times Square and other parts of the City. Jean provided so much useful information. Next time I plan a trip to NYC, I will DEFINITELY hope this property is available.

GREAT PLACE FOR A FAMILY

  • 5 of 5
We had a great experience staying at this brownstone apt in Harlem. Jean was very helpful, answered all our questions. Apt was comfortable and clean. With 4 kids in tow ages 5 thru 13, we found the walk to the metro doable and safe. Probably a 10 to 15 minute walk, depending on how tired the kids were. Grocery store was close by too. Overall a great experience!

The apartment was exactly as it was pictured in the website. We had a very comfortable stay and enoyed our time in New York. A safe neighbourhood should anyone be considering their stay here.

The subway is just a few blocks away easily accessible to midtown Manhattan. Thank you Jean for the wonderful stay.

This apartment is located in the ground floor of a brownstone on a quiet block in historic Harlem, which is at the north end of Manhattan. The Apollo Theater, The Studio Museum of Harlem, Sylvia's famous soul food, and President Clinton's office are all just blocks away. The lively 125th Street shopping district is a 5 minute walk---where you can get everything from Mac Cosmetics and Hip-Hop clothes, to African drums and shea lotions. Restaurants such as Marcus Samuelsson's Red Rooster, Chez Lucienne, and the Corner Social have created a lively culinary corner within a few blocks. It's less than a 10 minute walk to the 4/5/6 subway lines or the 2/3 subway lines which take you all the way up and down the East and West sides of Manhattan. Both Grand Central and Times Square are about a 20 minute subway ride away. The M1 bus is one block away and travels down 5th Avenue along Central Park and past the Met, Guggenheim and other museums.

Other Activities: It's New York City--you can do anything and everything!
