About the property

2 Bedrooms, half a block away from express trains, close to parks, non-smoking

This 2 bedroom 1 bath apartment is perfect for the traveler who wants to experience all that New York City has to offer while staying in a quiet historic neighborhood. This treelined quintessential New York block is also half a block from the A and D Trains which take you to Times Square in 15 minutes.

Outfitted perfectly for any renter, this apartment is very comfortable and includes a washer/dryer. It is perfect for families and has a booster seat, pack n play and toys are available upon request. It is an open layout with a comfy couch, flat screen TV and a large dining table. 1 bedroom has a queen sized bed and the other a full sized and twin sized bunk beds. Fully stocked, the kitchen has all the amenities one would need to cook a 4 course meal, but why would you cook when you could eat out and have any ethnic cuisine steps away from your apartment!

Currently new legislation outlaws short term rentals in multi-family units (buildings categorized as 3-family or greater by the DOB. This house is a DOB certified 2 family house which makes it legal to rent short term according to the new legislation.

The House: This beautiful apartment is on the ground floor of a five floor brownstone row-house in the Sugar Hill/Hamilton Heights section of Harlem. The house was built in 1898 in Renaissance Revival style as a single family house for a family with lots of servants. During those years, this garden apartment was the kitchen and informal dining room.

During the 1920s the house was a speak easy and later a bed and breakfast. We purchased the house 3 years ago and renovated the house but preserved as much original detail as possible. In the first year, we lived in the garden apartment with our two kids while we renovated the rest of the house. Hence, its family friendly layout, bunk beds and access to family needs such as a changing pad and pack n play.

The Neighborhood: Sugar Hill and Hamilton Heights are a lovely neighborhood of elegant row-houses in an area that once served as the country retreat for the city's wealthy, at a time when the city included just southern Manhattan. Alexander Hamilton. a prominent statesman in the 1780s, built his country home, The Grange, on his estate just south of where 145th Street is now. Today The Grange is part of the National Parks system and can be visited at the north end of St. Nicholas Park.

When the train lines were extended north to this area in the 1880s the land was developed into elegant townhouses.

During the Harlem Renaissance in the 1920s and 1930s, African Americans made their mark on NYC as they had never been permitted to do so before. The north end of Hamilton Heights was known as Sugar Hill, for the sweet life available to those who could afford it.

The neighborhood is full of magnificent architecture in a variety of turn-of-the-century styles on quiet tree-lined streets dotted with lovely community gardens.
