About Carolann Greenup
I was born and raised in NYC and have lived here almost my entire life. My dad's old office was literally right next door to the world-famous Apollo Theatre, so my love affair with Harlem began early. I love the diversity and excitement of NYC! I think it is one of the best places in the world to live, especially if you cannot afford to travel. There are so many different cultures on display in NYC. And Harlem is in the midst of a second (third? fourth? twelfth?) renaissance which makes every day an adventure. Since I've lived in this neighborhood, I don't think I've ever been bored a day in my life.
Why Carolann Greenup chose Strivers' Row
The patterned tile floor of the vestibule, the spectacular woodwork which distinguishes the hallway and staircase; the fireplace with its pillars and tile work; the bay windows in the master bedroom - a brownstone is more than a building; it is a historical snapshot, a beautiful example of the elegance of a bygone era. This property is a living, vibrant museum. We manage and maintain it with a great deal of love.
What makes this Townhome unique
While I would never want to be bored, I also appreciate peace and serenity. The stately beauty of this building has a very calming effect on its residents which makes it very easy to relax after an exciting day of life in the big city.

Great place to stay while visiting NYC!
This is a hidden gem and I'm so glad we had the opportunity to stay here while visiting NYC. Carolann is a very gracious and thoughtful host who provided everything we needed for our stay at Harlem Comfort. The apartment was immaculately clean and very spacious, with air conditioning and comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen and a nice living room area. Carolann had even placed lovely fresh flowers around the apartment and had some wonderful food for us in the refrigerator.
The apartment is conveniently located, only a few blocks from the subway and easy to get anywhere in the city. It was quiet inside at night and very safe and secure. I highly recommend Harlem Comfort and would definitely stay there again!
I'm glad you enjoyed yourself, and you are welcome back anytime. Thanks for staying with us.
Wonderful Place To Stay!!
The brownstone is a true "home away". It is close to two subway stations, and is a comfortable place to return to each day! The apartment has everything anyone would need. The wonderful hostess has thought of everything that her guests might want.
The accommodation has a nice kitchen, plenty of room to relax and plan your next outing! We highly recommend it for anyone going to New York City!!
Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. Please come again.
Had a great time!
It was a lovely apartment. The neighborhood was quiet. Very close to two different Subway stations which allowed us to get wherever we needed to go.
Carolann and Anthony were excellent hosts.
I'd definitely stay there again.
We're glad you enjoyed yourselves. Come again.

We had such a wonderful experience staying here during our trip to New York with our 11 year old grandsons. The apartment was generous in size for the four of us and close to the subway. Our hostess went over and above, filling the refrigerator with great food and even arranged a ride from the airport which we greatly appreciated after traveling all day from the west coast. We had a great time!
We're glad you enjoyed yourselves. Come back anytime.
A beautiful, comfortable, safe, and historic place to stay to enjoy the best city in the US!
We have been to New York City many times before and have always stayed at your typical tourist-centered hotels. Not this time! We really wanted to experience the city and the people of New York. So many people might think twice about staying in Harlem. If that might be you, DON'T! Especially here with Carolann! She made us feel welcome, safe, and always know she was a call away.
As soon as we arrived, she was there to welcome our family and gave us a tour of the property. She even had the refrigerator fully stocked with essentials (milk, water bottles, orange juice), and had chicken dinner ready for us after a long day of traveling. All homemade! There was even freshly made banana bread.
As far as the apartment, it was beautiful! The reviews posted prior to mine do a wonderful job describing it. We have absolutely no complaints. It is beautiful. It was clean and sanitary. It was stocked with enough supplies for our four day stay (and then some). We never had any problems, and if we did, I am positive Carolann would have taken care of them immediately. We were so happy to have stayed there and to have met both Carolann and Anthony. They are such lovely people with hearts of gold. Thank you Carolann and Anthony!
Thank you so much! We are delighted that you enjoyed yourselves, and you are welcome back anytime.

Beautiful and comfortable stay!
Finally the dust has settled from our travels and I have time to review.
BLUF (Bottom Line Up Front) Book it and don’t second guess. It’s a very comfortable and well appointed apartment, perfect for the family of 4 or so. Carolann’s hospitality is second to none. We were greeted upon arrival and never had any doubt as to our safety and needs being met.
The master bedroom is very spacious. Big enough for all our luggage and room to move around. A family with infants could fit a “pack-n-play” in the room easily. Closet space is a plus!
The second room is not so roomy but the double bed sleeps one adult perfect and two would be cozy but not impossible. The fold out sofa was very comfortable for my 13 year old son.
Kitchen is great with coffee and snacks. We didn’t use it much but it was perfect for anyone that wants to cook at the apartment.
It is a 100 year old brownstone apartment so the age does show in the entry way but it’s so nicely updated and remodeled, you can barely tell on the inside.
Also, get a subway pass and walk two blocks to a clean and safe subway stop. Dismiss all the movies you’ve seen. The subways were always safe and even fun.( a few characters here and there) We never felt unsafe walking to and from the subway at all times of day or night.
Thank you Carolann and her team for the wonderful stay. We hope to do it again someday!
We're so glad you enjoyed yourselves! And that you had a good time. You are welcome back anytime. That building is an ongoing work in progress. We've been working on it for years. Who knows; maybe by the time you get back, we'll finally be done with the hallway!

Additional information about rental rates
Rates are non-negotiable and will not be lowered. If you are unwilling to pay them, please do not contact us. We do not give full or partial refunds for late arrivals or early departures under any circumstances. We cannot accommodate smokers. We appreciate your interest and are sorry to lose your business, but please do not contact us if you smoke. Entrance and common areas of this building are under 24-hour camera surveillance. Apartment is not child-proofed. Not recommended for infants, toddlers or children below the age of 6. Our website says that "This Owner Accepts Fewer Booking Requests Than Average." This is not accurate. We often have to cancel a guest's initial booking request and then redo it in order to lower the deposit amount. VRBO's system defaults to a large initial deposit, and we do not want to take a lot of money from our guests who may be booking several months in advance. You never know what can happen, and we do not refund deposits. We do not want to see anyone spend a lot of money up front which is non-refundable and then have to cancel their trip and lose a big deposit. So while it appears that we reject a lot of booking requests, we do not. We REDO a lot of booking requests. For longer-term stay options, please see our sister property, Harlem Comfort II, under listing 1064276.
