About Sandy Wagner

My partner Marsha and I are both native New Yorkers who spent many years travelling the world. Marsha is an attorney and I am a part time mortgage banker and entrepreneur.

Sandy Wagner purchased this townhome in 2000

Why Sandy Wagner chose Manhattan

We moved to this house because it is a spectacular, gracious home. Most New Yorkers do not have the luxury of having the space we do. We feel very lucky to be living here

Loved, Loved, Loved this Loft!

  • 5 of 5

We (a mom and two teenage girls) stayed in this charming, sunny loft for 6 nights. We loved it! It has great character, is very comfortable and also fun with all the extras (ping pong table, workout equipment, books, games). It's location is ideal, with two different options for subway travel (5-10 minute walk). The neighborhood was lovely, quiet and safe. Sandy and Marsha are two special ladies, sharing their home, as well as yummy treats everyday. We enjoyed breakfast every morning with the items left for us. Loved, Loved, Loved it!!!

Unique Comfortable Hospitality in Harlem

  • 4 of 5

We chose to stay with Sandy and Marsha to be close to our son's apartment 4 blocks away and were very comfortable during our stay. The house is lovingly restored and furnished and they are very attentive hosts. For just one instance, the dining area was stocked when we arrived- ground coffee, orange juice, bagels, yogurt, etc.- in short all the makings for a simple breakfast. On several days Marsha also presented us with fresh muffins and other great home-baked goods! There is not a full kitchen, but we did not miss it as we either ate lunch and dinner out or ordered in. Easy walks to two different subway lines made travel downtown a snap, and Sandy was very helpful with all questions about directions. The only proviso we mention is that the apartment is an open plan- both sleeping areas are in the open space and the bathroom is the only fully private room. That said, we loved staying here and recommend it as a unique and pleasant base for a few days in New York!

Comfortable, convenient and full of beautiful antiques

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in the Loft in Harlem. It was convenient to the subway. It is beautifully decorated with antiques. We never felt unsafe coming and going to the subway. No matter what time we returned to the Loft, there were always people out walking. Sondra was a very gracious host. She and Marsha are very friendly. The loft is just as the pictures depict. Very spacious for NYC! I would recommend this property to anyone wanting a quieter place to stay away from the busy Manhattan noise and traffic.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

My son and I stayed for three nights as a Spring Break get away. We really enjoyed the home and found it to be a convenient location for all of our sightseeing. Sandy was extremely accommodating and a great source of info for our daily plans. The home is in a nice neighborhood of Harlem and a convenient walk from the subway. The 3rd floor sunny loft was all as advertised - we hope to go back again soon!
