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 Strivers' Row

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!!!

Spacious and fun with lovely hostesses!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I were in NYC for the first time and really appreciated having Sandy and Marsha help us learn to get around the city. And they spoiled us with great food! The third floor was light, bright, and very spacious. Loved having a bedroom area, living area, large bathroom, game area with ping pong table, and kitchen area with a well-stocked fridge and a wide variety of snacks and breakfast food. We are looking forward to our next trip and will definitely stay here again!

Spacious and full of character, with very attentive and welcoming hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted with the property. Everything was as promised, and the property has an eccentric charm that made our visit a great success. It has good access to the subway, and there were some very personal touches that made us wish we had a longer stay. The bathroom is spectacular.

Unique and well worth it

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay in NYC. My fiancé had never been to The Big Apple and Sandy and Marsha made her feel right at home and helped with the comfort of the big city. The loft is shabby chic and in the middle of Harlem. Sandy had a walking tour book of Harlem, which gave us some great insight in the history of the neighbourhood.

We were able to park our car without a problem on the street, just offset from the house and it was fine when we returned to it two days later. We used the subway and cabs to get around, which just adds to the adventure.

Two things to keep in mind, the loft is open, so if your going to get amorous, don't be shy. Also, the tub is great as a jetted tub is, but a quick shower is a little more problematic. I'm a tall guy and I wasn't sure, while showering, was I supposed to be sitting, kneeling or standing. [sometimes I over-think things (I stood)]

The treats, fresh orange juice and pastries were outstanding.

Sandy and Marsha's loft made our engagement weekend that much more unforgettable.
