The apartment is located in a diverse cultural neighborhood with a rich history in the arts. It is 3 blocks south of Riverside Park where the 'Invisible Man Sculpture' of Ralph Ellison (150th St and Riverside Drive) is located. Mr Ellison's last home was across from the site at 730 Riverside Drive for many years. The community has long been a home of choice for other noted artists and professionals.

There is also a very diverse selection of quality food establishments in the neighborhood, such as Unione - Cafe Bar (Italian) at 149th, Harlem Public, Cova's (Italian)at 12th 138th Street, Tanto Dulce Cafe on Broadway, Starbucks at 145th & Bradhurst, Picante Mexican at 139th & Broadway, the Grange at 1635 Amsterdam, Ecuatoriana Restaurant (Ecuadoria/Spanish) at Amsterdam Avenue between 143rd and 144th, Sweet Chef Southern Style Battery at 122 Hamilton Place, Dunkin Donuts at 148 & Broadway, Raw Soul Restaurant & Juice Bar at 145 between Edgecombe & St Nicholas, McDonalds at 145th and Broadway, Burger Kings at Broadway & 143, Subway at 146th and Broadway, etc. The neighborhood also has a number of deli's and newspaper stands for people on the go.

There are daily and weekly tours offered in the neighborhood including walking tours of the Sugar Hill/Hamilton Heights area where you can see the home of Alexander Hamilton, the main campus of City College of New York at 141st and Convent Avenue.

A nice walk south will take you to Grant's Tomb at Riverside Drive and 122nd Street in the Morningside Heights neighborhood of Columbia University, Union Seminary, Manhattan School of Music, etc. You can also easily get there by public transportation.

The apartment is also two blocks from Riverbank State Park(entrance at 145th street) which is a secure venue offering all types of physical activities, including but not limited to, tennis, handball, basketball (indoor and outdoor courts), baseball, track, skating (ice-skating during the winter), swimming (indoor and outdoor olympic sized pools),a children's jungle gym, etc. The park also has indoor performing arts space and an amphitheater on the Hudson River.

Interaction with guests

I live upstairs in the main house so I am usually available if needed.

Other things to note

There are a lot of wonderful restaurants in the neighborhood as well as a large state park, Riverbank that has lots of activities. My favorite is the path that runs along the Hudson River for walking , running and riding bikes.

Emma is the perfect host; she greeted us in a friendly, caring and welcoming way. Emma even provided a few food items and milk and juice to help us settle in when we arrived. We appreciated that Emma sent us a note to check out to see how things were going during our week's stay. The space was clean and had lots of room for the 4 of us (3 Adults and 1 Baby); and the location was excellent- close to a beautiful park (Riverside Park), the Subway and grocery/drug stores. We hope we can return again one day!

Emma was very nice and helpful! The place was spacious and clean. We had our own entrance so it was easy to go in and out at any time. There were multiple air mattresses and a cot to accommodate our large group. And Emma left snacks and breakfast stuff for us to enjoy! Only heads up is that I had no service at all in the apartment with AT&T (other carriers were fine)

Emma was so pleasant and had everything we could need, just like home. She was always available by phone, helpful, felt safe, comfortable for our family of 4 with air mattress and couch. Spacious for an NYC apartment and back patio. She was sweet to have started us out with a OJ, milk, coffee, & apples. Everything was thought of, and we appreciated her attention to detail in house rules. Emma, thank you, again! Can't wait to come back:)

Emmma was a great host. She was very understanding and willing to help in any way she could, no matter the time of day. The neighborhood was quiet, access to the subway was only 1 block away, plenty of small stores and restaurants near by. I would definitely stay again.
