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 Harlem

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

Quiet and cosy apartment in Harlem

  • 5 of 5

Bill put us up on a very short notice because the apartment booked months before had sudddenly been cancelled. So it was Harlem instead of Chelsea which was quite a challenge. The neighborhood is safe but still a little bit rough, especially at night. However, we felt very comfortable in Bill´s nice apartment. He was very helpful and the apartment is very spacious although the bedrooms themselves are small. The kitchen had all the necessary facilities and equipment. Our suggestion would be to throw the seventh (!) bed out of the room and instead offer a real dinner table and real chairs.

Perfect for a girl's getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Three of us came from three different cities to meet in NYC to celebrate my sister's birthday. Bill met us upon arrival and gave many useful suggestions on things to do and places to eat. He also made a notebook for convenience of the guests, highlighting these things. The residents on our street were extremely friendly and made us feel very welcome. The condo is very close to the subways and easy to get cabs. Bill was a very good host and we lacked for nothing. We will return! Thank you, Bill, for making our stay so nice.

Fall Family Vacation

  • 3 of 5

First let me say Bill was a great host. He was very welcoming. He was accommodating when our flight was rescheduled to come in earlier which was a life saver. Having 2 bathrooms with 3 teenagers was an amazing feature. The main living area is the house is super tiny and not really good for lounging together after a day of walking around the city. Overall, the unit gave everyone room to spreadout though. The beds in the actual bedrooms are not really fit for 2 people and are very hard. I actually ended up sleeping separate from my husband on the bed in the main living area. The bedding and pillows are in serious need of an upgrade. The towels are rough and some of the fresh ones I pulled out of the linen closet had a smell so I didn’t use them. The unit was close to the subway and grocery store which was convenient. I’m not sure I would rent this place again based on the bed/bedding/linen situation but we made it work!
