Original over-sized photographic artwork creates a dramatic focal point. Enjoy sitting in the vintage government-issued dentist chair. The sofa folds out to become a full-sized bed. The well-stocked bookshelf provides eclectic reading. Original shutters fold out for privacy.

The kitchen features stainless steel appliances: full size refrigerator with auto ice maker, dishwasher, four burner gas range with oven and a built-in microwave/fan. Also provided are a blender, toaster, coffee maker, dishes and flatware, glassware and mugs, cooking pots and pans and utensils. There are plenty of cabinets with under-counter lighting.

The large windows also feature fold-out shutters for privacy, although you will love the view of the beautiful private garden below nestled under sheltering birch trees. A vintage oscillating wall fan is right across from the bed. Original sliding pocket doors keep the bedroom private.

Have a larger party or prefer a smaller unit? Check out Harlem Hideaway Studio, on the same floor (Home Away # 982538) or the Harlem Hideaway Guest Room (Home Away #993020) on the top floor. Both sleep two. Or you could also try the Garden Apartment (Home Away #3634519) that sleeps four.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Harlem Hideaway was a fantastic choice for our home away from home. Dennis is amazing and was helpful throughout the entire process. We are sad to be leaving and cannot wait to return.

We had a great time @ the Red Rooster our first night and the breakfast wraps @ Cafe Latte are a must!

An enthusiastic New York and Harlem resident, always ready to give the inside scoop and recommendations on Harlem or NYC. Very involved in the neighborhood. A product, landscape and interior designer with numerous awards and items in national museums. In fact, the building has also been published in several magazines and appeared in films. A world traveller, as I flew for Pan Am for over 7 years. Partner at the popular Harlem Shake, a restaurant I designed.

Dennis Decker purchased this apartment in 2000

This building is typical of the historic neighborhood. I was impressed that it still retained so much of its original form and material. However, I was very impressed by the atmosphere of the block, with friendly, open and involved neighbors.

The quiet friendly tree-lined street, proximity to express subway- only 4 stops to Times Square, closeness to neighborhood coffee shop and historic park, as well as the 125 St. corridor and Central Park.

I actually love sitting on the front stoop while having a coffee or a glass of wine. I love seeing the relaxed street life going by, and being a part of it. Since my block is dominated by private brownstones, rather than apartment buildings, it has a friendlier, small town feeling than most other neighborhoods.

EVERYTHING YOU COULD EXPECT

  • 5 of 5
We could not have found a better apartement for our 9-night stay in NYC! Everything was exactly as described. The apartment is charming, calm and clean - the perfect "base" for exploring Manhatten. We would love to come back again, and will surely recommend the Harlem Hideaway Parlor Apartment to all our friends!

HARLEM HIDEAWAY

  • 5 of 5
As I was recommending this apartment to a family member, I realized that I had never written a review. This is a great place to stay. We visited the city in December 2013, and stayed here. My son and I arrived a day before my husband, and would stay in Harlem again in a minute. Not very familiar with the city and without a car, my son and I easily, and safely wandered the city before our guide arrived. I would highly recommend this apartment building. It is swanky, stylish, well taken care of, and a great location. (And priced much better than Manhattan) The owner is helpful and easy to work with. Two thumbs up!

FANTASTIC, LIVING LIKE A NEW YORKER EXPERIENCE!

  • 5 of 5
My son and I had a fantastic holiday in New York and the Harlem Hideaway only enhanced our experience.
Our parlour was beautifully decorated and clean with all the amenities you could ask for including a full kitchen and laundry facilities.
Dennis is a gracious host who couldn't have been more welcoming or accommodating.
Excellent position - a 2 minute walk to the subway and perfectly positioned to explore Harlem and all it has to offer on foot.
Close to everything - subway, restaurants, shops (or should I say stores).
I couldn't recommend the Harlem Hideaway highly enough.
Thank you so much Dennis!

LARGE, QUIET, STYLISH APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
We were very impressed by the size of the apartment. It can easily be separated by a set of sliding doors to create separate bed rooms. My father had no complaints sleeping on the sofa bed, the queen sized bed in the bedroom was very comfortable. The bathroom is very clean, warm and hot water at all times. Bathtub requires you to take a bigger step to climb in. The kitchen was state of the art, all new appliances and fully equipped with coffee maker, numerous pots and pans, an oven, dish washer, very large fridge. It was great to make use of the kitchen and prepare breakfast and meals for the family. The apartment is in a safe area, only a few blocks north of Central Park. We stayed for Christmas - any worries I may have had about room temperature (high ceilings!) were invalidated: it was very warm and cosy! Dennis, the owner, was extremely nice and helpful with all questions that we had, not just about the apartment. We would always come back here.
