About Bill Kammer

Retired NYC Public School teacher, now a full time 'back to my roots' Jazz musician (Berklee College of Music) living in the soul of New York - Harlem. In the past ten years I've seen Harlem grow to what it is today, and want to share it with the world. This is why I have decided to post my duplex apt on this site. I hope all my guests can get a taste of the Harlem culture during their stay with us.

Bill Kammer purchased this townhome in 2001

Why Bill Kammer chose Manhattan

I love Harlem for its Jazz history and hoping to further the tradition.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much. We really enjoyed our trip to NYC (I'm still singing "I love New York") and the cozy, comfy apartment. It was well appointed and in a convenient, wonderfully interesting neighborhood. Loved it!

Charming Duplex

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful place to set up our home for the week. Bill is a responded fast to all my questions before we arrived and was available if we needed anything while we were there. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get! I have to say that "2" is the magic number... 2 floors, 2 bedrooms and 2 full size bathrooms. Kitchen & eating area was perfect of us, might be tight for a bigger group. It was super clean, very comfortable and had just the right amount of warm touches to make feel like a home and not a process rental apartment. We hit one of the hottest weeks & the AC never failed. Bill was so worried about us staying cool that when we arrived home one night there was a note with an extra fan waiting at our doorstep. We did not need it but it was so nice he was worried about us. Super quiet home & neighborhood. It was convenient to buses, subway, groceries and restaurants. We loved the place so much that we are hoping to stay there this winter.

A very well maintained brownstone in west Harlem!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay in W Harlem at Bill's place. Bill was very helpful and informative on our arrival! We were close to the main subway line and once you figure the subway out it is the cheapest way to get around the city! We Found taxis to be cheaper than über when we needed to go to the theater. There is a grocery store and CVS 3 blocks away right off the subway. If you have trouble climbing steps this isn't the place for you as there are several steep stairs. This was not a problem for us though. Thank you Bill for a great place to stay in NYC!

Very good spot to explore New York City!

  • 5 of 5

It was a great pleasure to stay at the house of Bill. When we arrived the house was clean and Bill had bought some fruit, bread and drinks for us. Everything we needed was available. The location ( in Harlem) was quiet and nearby 2 different subway stations, supermarkets, nice restaurants and Central Park. We had a great time in New York City!!

Clean and comfortable.

The property was very clean and comfortable. It had everything you would need for an extended stay. So much better than staying in a hotel. We really enjoyed our visit to New York!

Cute! Reminds me of "Sex in the City" apt Carrie lived in

  • 4 of 5

First impression....oh, my, stairs leading to rooms a little tight. Upon entry, amazed at the layout of rooms...cute and comfortable. Property was clean, well-maintained. My sister and niece stayed in rooms on 2nd floor, my son and I stayed in rooms on 3rd floor. Owner Bill resides in first floor and never intrusive, available when needed. Neighborhood entertaining, busy, safe, convenient access to subway (about two blocks), small grocery store (around the corner), Marcus Garvey park (around the corner). Bill left a binder with very helpful tips/information to get around NYC. Staying here was a great experience for it allowed for immersion into the neighborhood culture and opportunities to experience NYC like the citizens. NOTE: Would have appreciated instructions on how to deal with trash and NYC recycling guidelines to reference.
