About Stanley McIntosh
Rosalinda and I are long time residents of Harlem. In fact, we met at a jazz concert in Grant's Tomb. I was born here Rosalinda has lived in West Africa as well as Harlem. We have a son, Alberto, who is fluent in French and English. We both graduated from schools here. I went to Columbia University undergraduate and graduate school of Architecture and Urban Planning and she went to City College majoring in philosophy. We also lived and taught English language skills at the International University of Grand Bassam in Grand Bassam, Cote d'Ivoire. Rosalinda is fluent in Spanish, French as well as English. I am conversant in French and fluent in English. We renovated a house in Cote d'Ivoire hosting friends from Abidjan as well a housing students. I still serve as president of the block association on 132nd and you will see the efforts of our labor upon visiting us. Rosalinda enjoys decorating and we both enjoy reading and gardening.
Why Stanley McIntosh chose Harlem
The property is a legacy. My father bought the house in 1938. I grew up in the same house. This house as a part of the block has all of the old world charm and the scale makes one feel like one is in a small town despite the fact that we are in New York. I have witnessed the neighborhood changes and am glad that the renaissance now is having such a great effect on the community. It is exceptionally quiet on the block and extremely neighborly
What makes this Apartment unique
The apartment has the old world charm with modern updates. The kitchen is open, modern but has exposed brick walls. the living room has the original chair rails and the decorative fireplace is always so comforting. The bedroom with its exposed brick wall and is filled with light. It is hypnotizing and to see the birds and watching the flowers blooming is heavenly.

Great stay, great host
The place was great. Stanley was very accommodating, and extremely friendly. The place was exactly as described, and it is very reasonably priced. We picked it because it had a bedroom separate from the other parts of the space. My sister and I made our annual trip to NYC and slept better than we ever have since the beds were in separate rooms! Stanley has so many tips and a great binder with recommendations. You’re under 10 minutes walk to the 125th St. station as well as to the 132nd St. station. It’s only 15 minutes drive from LaGuardia, which was awesome for our early flight time out of there. We would definitely stay there again. Beds were comfy also. Tons of space. Loved it.
Cute & Cozy!
Our family of four stayed here and enjoyed the quiet and cozy haven we came home to each evening. It was so quiet...we were surprised to be right in the city and to wake up to no traffic noise...just birds chirping! Stanley is such a great host and was extremely helpful helping us secure an important delivery when we were not there to receive it. He will go above and beyond to give you tourist advice and help you out in any way!
Great brownstone in the heart of Harlem
Stanley was a very gracious and accommodating host. His brownstone was perfect, clean, and very cozy. Our family of 4 really enjoyed the location and Stanley’s suggestions of where to visit and eat. We’ll be back, Stanley!
It was great to host you and the family. I have to do some more researh since new places of interest, event and restaurants open frequently in Harlem these days.
Thank you for choosing us
Lovely cosy and quiet apartment in an ideal location for transport
Loved the apartment, it really did feel like a home from home. Stanley is a superb and charming host and we can't wait to return. Everything one needs is in the apartment and the options for both subway and buses make it an ideal location.
Thank you for choosing us and your very kind words. Looking orward to your next visit.
Great for family of 4

fabulous vacation apartment
This Harlem brownstone apartment was cozy, quiet, and very comfortable with good beds, a well stocked kitchen, and everything to make a comfortable stay. The neighborhood is close to transportation, has many nice restaurants, and options for groceries. Most of all, Rosalinda and Stanley are wonderful hosts and now we consider them delightful friends. A place not to be missed!
It was such a pleasure to have you both as guests It was really good to talk about our mutual issues and I am so glad that you were able to attend and enjoy our block association' Holiday celebration.
