Condo/Apartment
This fabulously located one bedroom apartment on the third floor of a classic brownstone is clean, quiet and comfortable. It is perfectly located and set-up for tourists and those visiting for study or business. You’re only minutes away from Times Square via the subway at 125th St., and after a day enjoying the attractions of New York City, you’ll love coming back to relax in the sunny living area, catch up with friends at home via the free wi-fi connection, watch some television, soak in the tub or take a quick nap on the comfortable queen sized bed before heading out to some of the funky bars and music venues of Central Harlem.

If a quiet night is more your style and you like cooking for yourself, there are great food stores close by for supplies, and a well-equipped kitchen to transform your ingredients. For those guests able to stay longer there is plenty of storage space in the apartment.

You’ll find the Apollo Theater here and other historic buildings, many transformed into contemporary music venues. Marcus Garvey Park is about 10 minutes walk away and Central Park just a few blocks further south. It’s a safe, friendly and fun neighborhood, with lots of great restaurants and bars nearby – a taste of real New York. The apartment is in a quiet street between Malcolm X Boulevard and Seventh Ave. Transport - The closest subway (2/3 line) is just 5 minutes walk (4 blocks south). A few blocks east, about 10 minutes walk, and you can access the 4,5,6 lines and Metro-North. More
