Our apartment is tastefully furnished with a fully equipped kitchen, bed-linens, towels, everything you need to make you feel at home. Staying in a turn-of-the-century Brownstone in New York City is an authentic experience in itself. We have beautiful art on the walls, great books in our bookcase, cable TV and wireless internet for entertainment and business.

Some of the most beautiful Brownstone Streets in the City are located in this neighborhood as well as many excellent coffee shops such as Chipped Cup, Cafe One, and restaurants like NoBo, Anchor Wine Bar, and Dinosaur BBQ.

AND the greatest grocery in the world: Fairway Market. Riverbank Athletic Park, located 3 blocks away, is a 17 acre athletic complex with full track, tennis courts and indoor pool.

About Darlyn

My husband was a sea-captain for many years, traveling through Asia, Europe, South America, the Middle East and Africa. He loved cities, culture and travel. New York was always a favorite of his and we wanted our own place in the city to call home.

Darlyn purchased this townhome in 1998

Why Darlyn chose Manhattan

Because Harlem and Hamilton Heights has so much history.

What makes this townhome unique

Broadway, Opera, Theater, Dance, Ballet and an easy subway ride to The Botanical Gardens. The worldclass art museums and restaurants are easy to access. Experience the incredible energy and people of this fabulous City.

A Harlem Brownstone with 2 fireplaces and 11 foot ceilings.

Wonderful apartment in a fun, lively, inexpensive (for NYC) neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for 10 days in April. We both work in NY, so commute every day and enjoy having a place to call "home." This apartment was perfect. I thought it was better than the photos. Subway was a few minutes away, and we were able to park on the street every day. Great restaurants and dive diners in the neighborhood, plus tons of small stores, wine/liquor shops, etc. We felt very safe day and night. Apartment is well stocked and comfy. The couch is a little small, but we were fine cuddled up on it. Bed was comfy. The one con was that it took a few minutes to get the shower the right temp, and it sometimes changed mid-shower, but I can live with that. Also, the bedroom has lots of light, which is nice, but if you like to sleep in, be prepared. There are blinds, but it is a little bright. Would definitely stay here again.

Great time in Hamilton Heights

  • 4 of 5

Just spent an extended weekend in NY. My wife and I loved the brownstone and our time spent there. Everything was convenient, grocery on the corner, subway about 3 blocks away and plenty of restaurants in walking distance. The only issue was with the cable TV, but we didn't come to NY to watch cable, so no worries. This apartment gave us a feeling of being pseudo-New Yorkers for a weekend!

Cute, clean, home away from home

  • 4 of 5

Our firsf visit to New York City and this little apartment made it feel like home. Nice quiet place to come back to after the hustle and bustle of downtown all day. Two blocks away was the subway line that takes you everywhere you need to go. Used Uber cabs back to the airport and the car was there in 2 minutes to pick us up. Place was very clean and had great coffee in the cupboard :) The pull out beds weren't amazing but my Mom loved the queen bed in the bedroom. We ate at a couple of the small restaurants right down the street and all the food was amazing. So glad we tried it out. Would love to go back some day.

Beautiful Brownstone

  • 4 of 5

Lovely place to stay away from the busyness of Times Square. Easy travel via the subway #1 Red. Cool to get a taste of the New Yorkers daily life staying in a brownstone in Hamiton Heights. Great near by grocery store on 138th. City college is amazing and great restaurants close by. Thank you to Darlyn for looking after us!!!
