Harlem Hideaway Studio Apartment

The Harlem Hideaway Studio is fully furnished and located in Uptown Manhattan, in Harlem, New York City. The apartment is on the 1st floor of a landmarked private brownstone townhouse in the Mount Morris Historic District.

The all-white interior with 12' ceilings and a view of a tree filled leafy garden will instantly put you in a peaceful mood.

Enter from the front stoop through the ornate carved wood entry arch and you will feel like you have just stepped back 100 years in time. All original oak details which show the charm of gently worn history. Go straight ahead to your own apartment through the 10' entry door.

This Studio Apartment is very special from the time you open the door. The 12' ceilings create a special ambience and all-white room direct you to look out at the beauty of the peaceful private nicely landscaped back garden to which you have full access. Since it is in the back of the building you hear no street noise.

The apartment is furnished with high end furniture, such as an original leather Corbusier sofa and raw steel full length mirror, a queen size bed (memory foam mattress) and two bed stands. Also a 42'' screen mounted TV, with hundreds of cable channels, pivots out for viewing anywhere in the apartment. The bed area is carpeted for a more lush intimate feeling. The radio/iPod player holds an iPod filled with Harlem Hideaway playlist of jazz and blues. Books about New York and Harlem are provided, as well as current issues of Time Out Magazine to let you know what is currently happening in the city.

There is a large closet and plenty of extra overhead storage to hide that suitcase and other items.

The kitchen has quartz countertop, gas burners, microwave/convection oven, toaster, coffee maker, stainless bottom freezer refrigerator and is stocked with coffee and tea and plenty of storage. The refrigerator has a filtered water pitcher. Dine under the huge oversized pendant light next to the original massive black and white blow-up from a vintage science book.

Check out the quirky items in the metal glass display case and you may laugh. Linens, towels, iron/board and vacuum cleaner are provided, as well as lending umbrellas.

A 3 speed overhead ceiling fan and quiet built-in air conditioner/heater will add to your comfort, as well as separate adjustable bedside lamps.

The all white shower room with lit oversized medicine cabinet contains an outlet, as well as a shampoo, body wash and hairdryer. The separate toilet room has its own charms.

Large washer and dryer are just a few steps down in the basement.

The large backyard and the front stoop are both there for your enjoyment.

About Me
About Dennis Decker An enthusiastic New York and Harlem resident, always ready to give the inside scoop and recommendations on Harlem or NYC. Very involved in the neighborhood. Designer and partner of Harlem Shake, the popular local restaurant. A product, landscape and interior designer with numerous awards and items in national museums. In fact, the building has also been published in several magazines and appeared in films. A world traveller, as I flew for Pan Am for over 7 years. Dennis Decker purchased this apartment in 2000 Why Dennis Decker chose Manhattan This building is typical of the historic neighborhood. I was impressed that it still retained so much of its original form and material. However, I was very impressed by the atmosphere of the block, with friendly, open and involved neighbors.
