My friend and I came to New York for the first time. We stayed in this very cute apartment. Our host Milton was the best. We got to enjoy all what New York had to offer. It was very very cold outside and every night we came home to a warm cozy apartment. Milton was nice enough to give a cheesecake that was very delicious. Harlem was a safe place to stay and I would recommend this place to anyone , it had close stores such as CVS and Whole Foods. Everything we needed was in close range to the apartment. Thanks again Milton for an amazing stay.
If you are looking for a quiet place to stay and away from crowd and noise and yet accessible to the city, this is the place to stay for a change. The subway is a stone throw and supermart is close by.
I Have No words to Explain My Stay... I can't say Enough about Milton and This Place... I started out with One Week... Now I went For Two... If I Keep this up I will Move in Soon... Everything is Accesible, Apartment is always clean... Milton's Hospitality is Beyond Reproach.... Great time... See You not enough sooner...
I have read quite several posts praising Milton the owner of this apartment but our experience exceeded them all. We have never had such a friendly ,knowledgeable and helpful host.
Harlem is a peaceful and friendly. We felt perfectly safe walking around day and night. There is a number of popular restaurants on Lenox Bvd. The subway station is 3 minutes away. Whole Foods is opening a large supermarket on the corner today (July 1). Staying there makes it easy to access The Apollo ( don't miss Wednesday's Amateur Night!!!), Bill's Place ( great music for jazz lovers- on weekends only) and the many churches that have Sunday gospel services ( ask Milton where to go).
The apartment has all the amenities you need : AC , a fully equipped kitchen, lots of towels, good working Wi Fi , TV, a sofa which can be used as an extra bed. It is perfectly clean.There is even a lovely garden.
One tip : Lines 1 and 2 of the subway which serve 125street on Lenox are express trains which stop at 72st and 42st. If you want to stop elsewhere get off at 96th street and switch to line 1 on the same platform.
