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.

Perfect location to calm down

You didn't promise too much when you said we'll quickly feel like at home. That became true after the first day in your beautiful studio and this hidden spot far away from the noisy streets While NYC is an adventure, your place is the perfect location to calm down with jazz music, enjoy the evening and make plans for the next day. That's what we did, day by day. We enjoyed it very much and are very thankful for all your recommendations and for making our trip to NYC and for making our trip to NYC an unforgettable one.
