Beautifully renovated brownstone with all the modern comfort. The huge apt has 2 floors with a living room, gourmet kitchen, dinning/bedroom & half bathroom on top & bedroom/full bathroom at the bottom floor. Within walking distance to subways.

The space

The Brownstone has two units and I live on the top unit. This apartment occupies the two lower floors of the brownstone with about 1000 Sq ft of space. With your own entrance, the upper floor has a living room, gourmet kitchen (Viking refrigerator, 6 burner Dacor stove plus more), back yard patio, dinning room/bedroom (open space) and a half bathroom. The lower floor has one bedroom with one full size bed and one sofa bed, and a full bathroom. There is a common set of open staircase that connects all the floors, so it's not a traditional sealed apartment.

I’ll provide:
•Fresh towels and sheets,
•Shampoo, conditioner, and body wash
•Wifi access
•Kitchen utensils, plates, and cookwares
•Anything that you may need, that I may have

Guest access

A little about the area: It’s near City College, very safe, and a tourist attraction, especially during summer when busloads of tourists, mostly from Europe come to visit. We are also well known by the film industry as there is at least one filming (movie or TV) per month. Easy subway access to different parts of Manhattan (~20 min to mid-town and ~35 min to Wall Street) with A, B, C, D, and 1 all within walking distance.

Interaction with guests

I work from home and live upstairs in the same brownstone. I have 2 small dogs and 1 cat. I have my own entrance but we share the brownstone with one common set of stairs that has access to all floors. My preferences are for guests who will be out discovering NY, or attending conferences/meetings; guests who are personable and not very loud. I would love to get to know my guests, but respect everyone’s privacy.

Please contact me to check dates and tell me a little about you. I may even be able to give you some ideas as to what to do in New York.

Other things to note

Please note, the apartment is not suitable for people strongly allergic to cats since my cat will most likely visit you during your stay, nor for children between 1 to 4 years old (none walking babies are fine)..

As a matter of security, I also ask that you COMPLETE your profile fully and add a couple of pictures. I do not accept bookings from blank profiles.
A valid photo id is requested when you arrive. Thank you.

The apartment is in a great location close to a really cool neighborhood in NY. The location was perfect as we were close to bars and restaurants. As expected in NYC, parking isn't easy. Wendy told us where to park for the weekend with no problems!

Wendy is an awesome host. We had some travel issues coming up before I flew to NYC. Wendy was glad to work things out with us. Fortunately we eventually made it to NYC and stayed at her beautiful house. My friend was initially concerned about the safety in Harlem, but we felt very safe in the neighborhood during our stay. Wendy is very nice. She recommended us some nice local restaurants and brunch places. She let us stayed a bit late on our check out day. The check out process was easy--we basically just packed out stuff, cleaned up trash, and left. The house is spacious with your own entrance. We didn't interact with Wendy too much during our stay but she's always there when we needed help. Overall very nice experience beyond expectation. Thank you Wendy for being so considerate and helpful
