Every conceivable amenity available including HD flat screen TV, elevator, garden (with dining and lounging furniture, gas grill), gorgeous rooms, full designer kitchen (GE Monogram appliances, farmhouse sink, quartz counters, copper ceilings), museum-quality furniture and contemporary artwork, fully air-conditioned and heated. Each of 5 bedrooms has its own elegant private bath with sink, toilet and shower and/or soaking tub. Billiards room, media room with huge flat screen and full laundry room. The home is a landmarked brownstone built in the late 1880's and gut-renovated to Architectural Digest standards in 2006-07. It is located in the landmarked Mt. Morris Park section of trendy Harlem, at the corner of Mount Morris Park West (a/k/a 5th Avenue) and West 123rd Street. Convenient to the 2, 3, 4, 5 & 6 trains, 5th Avenue bus lines and easy ability to hail a cab anytime of the day or night. Safe, free on-street parking. The neighborhood is very safe and very pleasant and boasts numerous beautiful brownstones, churches, parks and restaurants. We have excellent quality linens, complimentary coffee and tea, spa slippers and soaps. There is a piano in the Living room. Renters have access to the entire home (5 floors including exclusive use of elevator, LR, DR, kitchen, billiards, media and laundry rooms, garden, 5 bedrooms, 5 full and 2 half-baths, sleeping up to 12 guests). Rentals are for the entire home and are for a minimum of 3 nights at $1000.00. There is a one time 250$ cleaning fee. 'VERY IMPORTANT NOTE FOR VISITORS: Our property is a single family home. As such it is NOT subject to the new New York law, signed by the Governor this summer, that prohibits the short-term rental of housing units. That law only applies to buildings, such as every apartment building in NYC, containing 3 or more 'dwelling units' (i.e., separate apartments). Our home is not covered by this law because it is a single family unit, and therefore our rentals are completely legal. You may therefore be assured that renting from us will not be in violation of any laws and that you are at no risk of being unable to occupy the premises because the authorities have taken legal action against the property owner.'

Interaction with guests
I love greeting all my guests and making sure they are comfortable in the home and the neighborhood. I have made NY my home for many years so I am full of helpful tips to help navigate crowds and access tickets, reservations and free things too!. The home is your in it's entirety. No other residents on premises when you have the house.

The house was a perfect fit for 3 generations. It is ideally located. Joyce was the perfect host. If one wants to get the flavor of Harlem,both historic and present, one must stay in Harlem. I shall return.

About the neighbourhood
This Harlem mansion is located in the Mount Morris Park section of trendy Harlem. We are two blocks from the subway which is 15 minutes from Times Square. We are close to all other tourist sites, museums and shopping. The neighborhood is safe, historic, friendly and fascinating. The Red Rooster Restaurant is just around the corner, Paris Blues, Barawine. The neighborhood is full of restaurants. You never have to leave the neighborhood. But, if you do, the subway is two blocks and your can be anywhere in Manhattan in 20-390 minutes. It's fantastic and then come home to quiet streets and home at the end of the night. We are located on the edge of Marcus Garvey Park where are there are playgrounds, a swimming pool and flowers blooming. There are great restaurants, jazz venues and m...
