Comfort and friendliness in Upper Manhattan
Myself and my Mother spent six wonderful days at Ray's comfortable spacious and well located brownstone apartment. The area has everything...its predominantly Hispanic with a mix of students from the nearby Columbia University...everybody is so friendly ..chatting and smiling outside busy shops and cafes...we never felt anything other than safe walking around the area both a night time and during the day...the location is as Ray had said a short subway ride from downtown Manhattan so essentially you have the best of both worlds and always have the retreat and comfort of returning to your apartment after a busy day shopping or sightseeing around the city...I've stayed in a hotel downtown before but never again...the sense of living in a living breathing community is more enriching and leaves one with greater sense of having experienced a city. The local Grange restaurant has to be visited (Great Burgers and fine craft beer with lovely friendly staff) ..Cafe was our daily breakfast haunt (simple delicious breakfasts and homemade muffins to die for!..great coffee and hot chocolate too and yes, more friendly staff)...nearby River side park is a must..I ran through it each morning and alongside the Hudson River and down to the northern tip of Central park....picturesque and peaceful and safe..General Grants memorial building can be seen near the entrance to the park and is worth a viewing....one evening I went to the Smoke Jazz club (2751 Broadway) where you can enjoy live Jazz and eat good food at same time (be sure to phone and book as it sells out)...So...yes, I would highly recommend this Apartment and will certainly return for more of the same...Ray was a fantastic host ...meeting us at the Apartment showing us around and giving us all the information on the area including a useful map. On our departure he arranged a Cab to JFK and looked after our Bags while we enjoyed our last day in New York...10 out of 10 :)

Dieser Vermieter kümmert sich um Apartment und Gäste mit Empathie und Fürsorge
Sehr schönes Apartment, gepflegt und funktional zugleich, ruhige Lage in belebtem Viertel, sehr praktisch für Selbstversorger und mit guter Anbindung. Obwohl ein typisches "Ankommensviertel" für viele lateinamerikanische Zuwanderer, ist es weder anonym - man kennt sich bestens - noch unsicher und die Strasse sogar vergleichsweise sehr leise. Man ist zu Fuß schnell am Hudson, in Harlem oder auch im Central Park.
Gute Ausstattung und vor allem ein sehr fürsorglicher Vermieter, der hilfreich ist, ohne aufdringlich zu sein. Ray wohnt im Haus, kümmert sich um sein Gäste mit sehr guter Einführung und perfekten Hinweisen. Er gibt praktische Tipps, ist immer erreichbar und reagiert unmittelbar. Wir können ihn und das Apartment nur wärmstens empfehlen.
Moved my daughter to college in New York from Texas. The apartment was a distance from her dorm but easy access to subway. It was nice to get out of the hussel and bussel of the city. Apartment is spacious and much more comfortable than a hotel. Owner met us upon arrival and was available if we needed anything. Apartment is clean and well kept.
Very comfortable, very clean and a great location. Ray was a very attentive host which we really appreciated! Can't wait to go back again! I highly recommend this apartment for your NYC vacation. Double thumbs up. Thank you Ray!
Surprising find in Hamilton Heights
We were suitably impressed with the quiet, comfort, and safety in an area that we had never explored before. We've been to NYC dozens of times over the years and typically stay in a hotel near family in midtown. This time, we went with Ray's apartment and found it to be exactly what we needed.
Full disclosure: this area may not be for everyone. It's a bit gritty (we wouldn't have enjoyed walking with our children past the "Romantic Depot" on the corner of Broadway and 139th). Then again, we encountered no vagrants or troublesome behavior on the streets.
Overall, this is a working class neighborhood with lots of families. We enjoyed a couple nice meals at The Grange restaurant, and took the opportunity to explore sections of Harlem that we had never seen before. Riverside Park was a real treasure (but only during daylight hours).
Ray was a wonderful host, greeting us personally on Day One (waiting on the stoop as we arrived), and he continued to be a friendly face throughout our five-day stay. The apartment was clean, spacious, and comfortable. A/C in the bedroom worked fine; the three story walk-up was no problem, and we were amazed by how quiet the surroundings were at night.
This was, by far, the most economical and authentic stay that we've had in New York. We had become so accustomed to gentrified and touristy NYC, that we welcomed the change of pace.
Thanks Ray for your hospitality!
My daughters and I throughly enjoyed staying at Ray's apartment for our week in beautiful NYC.
He couldn't have been more helpful to us with our numerous questions, being that it was our first visit. The apt was comfortable and clean as well as truly getting the feel for NY living.
The only suggestion I may have for Ray, is to purchase a "Keurig" coffee machine. We had a difficult time with the older "Mr. Coffee" maker he had in the apartment and it required filters which was really inconvenient.The pods are so much easier and better quality, in my opinion. I usually had to wait to get into town before getting my morning cup or 3!
Otherwise, we can't wait to return!
