We had a wonderful stay at Carolyn’s upper Harlem brownstone for 5 nights. Growing up in NYC I would not have thought of staying on the Harlem/Washington Heights border but times change and the neighborhood is now safe and beautiful. The brownstone is on a quiet block (for NYC) although there is some entertaining jockeying for spaces on alternate street parking mornings. Lots of families live in the neighborhood leading to lots of grocery/pharmacy, etc options for your needs during a longer stay. We got to explore new bagel shops (Bo Bagels) and new restaurants. The apartment itself is charming and comfortable. Lots of character and beautifully furnished. Carolyn is a responsive and charming hostess who lives at the property. Apartment looks like the photos. We recommend the apartment and the neighborhood.
Adorable property with a fantastic host! The location was perfect; tons of restaurants in the neighborhood and a quick walk to almost everything we had planned. The host was super responsive and extremely helpful. Would definitely stay here again! :)
