The original 120 year old drawer cabinet separates the kitchen from the dining/living room area. There is plenty of room in the drawers to use it as a dresser if the living room as used as additional sleeping area. There is a 3 speed fan in with a dimmer light in the living room area and a dining table with 4 chairs and an adjustable dimmer light above the dining room table.

The large bedroom facing north to the beautiful private patio of the brownstone has a walk-n closet with a washer/dryer and a full length mirror on the door. The bedroom has sliding screened glass doors with a view of a very quiet, peaceful deck area. There are sheer curtains for privacy as well as an electric bar gate which lowers and raises at the touch of a button.

About the neighbourhood
The quiet friendly tree-lined street, proximity to express subway- only 4 stops to Times Square, closeness to neighborhood coffee shop and historic park, as well as the 125 St. corridor and Central Park. I actually love sitting on the front stoop while having a coffee or a glass of wine. I love seeing the relaxed street life going by, and being a part of it. Since my block is dominated by private brownstones, rather than apartment buildings, it has a friendlier, small town feeling than most other neighborhoods.
