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.

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.

It was a great experience. I felt like I was home even though I had never been to Harlem NY. There are plenty of great places to eat right around the block and most places in the city are easily accessible. Overall it was a great stay and I would definitely recommend for others to stay there.

My first time using Airbnb and I'm in love! Emma's place was located in a very safe, quaint, quiet neighborhood that's close to everything you need when staying in the city. I traveled with my two adult children and we were very comfortable in our own apartment with our own private entrance. The bed was so comfy! Emma met us upon arrival and gave us the keys a oriented us to the unit. She left snacks for us which came in very handy since we arrived a bit hungry! We walked all over the city, shopped and ate in great restaurants during our stay. Now that I know about Emma's, I will surely take additional trips to NYC!

Emma was very kind and attentive. Her home is very spacious and had everything I needed for my week-long stay. Communication was always fast and easy, check-in was smooth, and she even provided some food staples so I wouldn't have to worry about breakfast. The apartment is very quiet and comfortable. The wifi was a bit spotty in some places, but that's to be expected in the basement. The neighborhood is lovely and vibrant, and easily accessible via public transportation. I had a lovely stay and highly recommend Emma as a host!

I booked my family here for a few nights and they had a comfortable stay. The apartment was clean; well-stocked with beddings and linens; and, a well-functioning kitchen. It is located in a semi-basement but there is access to natural light and a patio at the back. The only challenge we encountered was the narrow set of steps leading down to the apartment which made it a bit hard as my guests had large suitcases. Emma was responsive and accommodating to requests. I would recommend to other visiting guests.
