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.

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.

Tranquility in the Big Apple

Ahhh! Who'd da thunk so much peace and tranquility can be found in the bustling big city of New York?

We had two and a half packed days in New York city and the comfortable Harlem Hideaway studio was a great place to come "home" to after our busy days. Dennis welcomed us upon our arrival and gave us the tour of all the amenities of the hideaway. He also gave us tips on nearby places to go eat and see in the neighborhood within walking distance. The place was quiet, the bed was comfortable, and like it said on the information guide in the room, "hot water and clean sheets!" Who could ask for anything more!?

We had breakfast every morning around the corner at Il Caffe Latte, ate soul food at the amazing Amy Ruth's, and dined at the fabulous Red Rooster---all in the area of the Harlem Hideaway. I really love this area and next time we come to New York City, we will definitely be back to the Harlem Hideaway. A lovely refuge and great find! We will be telling our friends and family about this great place to stay.

Thanks so much for your hospitality and all your suggestions! We enjoyed oursleves thoroughly and hope to be back again!
We recommend your guests to see as much as possible of the city by foot. We have walked clear from Yankee Stadium to Brooklyn during our stay. A walk across the Brooklyn Bridge is a must, as is the corn bread at Red Rooster.
Happy New Year!

Thank you so much for helping make our first time in NYC memorable. You really thought of everything we could possibly need! The apartment was beautiful, quiet and relaxing. We really enjoyed being able to cook a meal at "home." Most importantly, thanks for the first aid kit! :) We will be back and recommend Harlem Hideaway to our friends.
