About

Note: the Guest Room has been amended for the safer option of NO SHARED SPACE with the owner. 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 up the carpeted stairs to the top floor to your own private huge room. The Guest Room is located on the top (3rd) floor of the building. There are no other bedrooms on that floor. It is the only unit rented as a room, rather than a separate apartment. However, many guests prefer this room over the others, as it has its own attributes which makes it special. Its charming retro feel will definitely make your stay in New York special. The Guest Room is entered by a separate private entrance from the main hall. It is large (18’X18’) and has 3 south-facing windows which have their own original shutters for privacy or to darken the room. It faces the street down below and a clear view of the sky and treetops straight ahead. Although the Guest Room does not have a formal kitchen, it does have a small refrigerator/freezer, toaster oven, microwave, and coffee maker, along with cups glass, dishes and utensils. These are all neatly hidden in the large armoire between the decorative fireplace and the closet. The Guest Room has a high definition LED flat screen TV and wifi, as well as a radio/iPod player with an equipped iPod with a Harlem Hideaway playlist of blues and jazz. The queen size bed has a memory foam mattress. It has an antique desk and dresser, a bookcase with unique books and two relaxing woven chairs next to the vertical magazine rack containing vintage magazines and comics. It has an adjustable ceiling fan and lights with dimmer switches. During the summer it has an air conditioning unit. The graffiti wall is the entire west wall. It contains thousands of signatures of bygone friends and guests (some very famous). A marking pen awaits your own addition to the wall. The all white bathroom is five steps down the private internal hall. It is not shared and is dedicated only to the guests in the Guest Room. It has a skylight and claw foot tub and fan. The lights even dim to suit your mood. A hairdryer and outlet is provided, as well as a magnifying mirror and special gifts in the medicine cabinet for the ladies. Monogrammed bathrobes, soap and shampoo are also provided. Got Laundry? There is a full size washer and dryer in the basement for your use at no extra charge. You also have access to the beautiful shared backyard as well as the front stoop. For an additional $25/night you have total access to the outside terrace on the same floor. You are up in the trees and it is a peaceful and relaxing way to have a cup of coffee, glass of wine, or eat a meal.
