1-3 guests - beautiful views, comes with a baby grand piano. Quiet residential corner, Frederick Douglass Blvd's cafes and boutiques, Apollo Th, Morningside Park and a 3 minute walk to transportation. Bus on corner. There is a sweet, sociable cat.

The space

We are an artist/architect couple with 2 children, and often vacate our apartment leaving one or more bedrooms open for a guest. Until July 26 the apartment is shared with one parent (Joseph) and one child (daughter). After that point the apartment is shared with Joseph only. This is a perfect time for you to come enjoy New York City for a very reasonable rate! Sweet, quite, safe 1-3 bedroom apartment near Morningside Park, Columbia U, Barnard, Union Theological and Jewish Theological Seminaries, several subway lines and many bus routes, both of which go to the airports. The bus stop on our corner goes directly to the Metropolitan Museum of Art! Very clean and safe building with video intercom. Very close to wonderful restaurants, boutiques and walking distance to Morningside Park and Central Park!

Guest access

Fully equipped kitchen (no dishwasher), 1 bath, living room, wireless internet, music.

Interaction with guests

Will interact as much as needed. Depending on time of stay, either just the dad, or dad and daughter will be there to share the apartment with you.

Other things to note

There is a lot of original artwork on the walls, and art and architecture monographs, and a baby grand piano in the living room. There is a cat in the house, who is sweet and friendly - whose litterbox is in the bathroom. The apartment is in a 5 story apartment building, with no elevator - and the apartment is on the 5th floor, so it is a walk-up. But the benefit, apart from the exercise, is that the apartment has lots of natural light and nice views. There is an air conditioner in the dining room, and ceiling fans throughout the apartment. There are washers and dryers available in the basement level in coop (next door building). There is a great grocery about 3 blocks away, wonderful cafe life just down the block. Jazz clubs, including world-famous Showman's, are steps from the apartment.

t was a pleasure to stay at Karen´s place. The location is so convenient, just two blocks away from the metro stop. The neighbourhood is safe at any time. The house is confortable and well distributed. The host Joseph was fantastic, he made us feel at home!! He was helpful and very kind. He showed us the neighbourhood, explain us stories and architectural things. He plays the piano and made us enjoy of his art. There's someone special in the house, and that's Stuffy...the real master of the house. He is very sociable. In a nutshell a great place to stay.

Nous avons passé un séjour fabuleux chez Karen et Jospeh. Le logement est superbe, dans un immeuble de type brownstone, dans un quartier sympa d'Harlem, tout proche de plusieurs lignes de métro qui desservent très bien tout New-York. Le confort des chambres était parfait! Nous vivions avec Joseph, le mari de Karen, qui est d'une gentillesse et d'une attention très appréciables. Il était très facile de cohabiter dans les parties communes (hors des chambres) et Joseph s'arrange en plus pour vous laisser l'appartement assez libre. Nous avons vraiment apprécié séjourner dans cet appartement typiquement new-yorkais!

Un séjour exceptionnel chez Karen et Joseph à Harlem. Superbe quartier avec la maison à deux pas du métro et des magasins. L appartement est calme et propre, avec en cadeau le ronron du genial Staffy, le chat géant de la famille. Joseph nous a fait le plaisir de sa passionnante conversation en français, de son piano chaleureux et réconfortant après nos longues heures de marche. Un lieu idéal pour visiter NY en étant dans la vraie vie newyorkaise hors des hôtels à touristes.
