Karen purchased this Townhome in 2007
Why Karen chose Hamilton Heights
I have always loved the famous brownstones of New York and have always wanted to live in famous Harlem. I got both with this home.
What makes this Townhome unique
We renovated it in 2007 and tried to keep as many original details that were left since it was built in 1901. It was and is a labor of love. Many of our guests enjoy the original aspects of the home.

Location, Location, Location!
We had a wonderful stay in Hamilton Heights. The set up was perfect for two families (each with one child). We each had a bedroom and bathroom on separate floors to ourselves. The location could not have been more perfect. Pop up the street and walk two blocks to the subway. There is also a park down the street along the river. Be sure to eat at MamaSushi around the corner...FANSTASTIC! Thanks for a great stay.
The unit was GREAT! Nice location, clean and close to subway!
The appartment was just wonderful, like living at home. The owner was so nice and helpful. I had my daughter and three grand-daughters (18 ys old). We enjoyed staying in the unit and would do it again. The beds were more than expected!
Great location. Perfect size for two couples.
We really enjoyed the area and the different shops/restaurants etc. The river park is a great bonus in the area as is the proximity to the subway.
We'll be back next time we're in NYC again with other folks.
Dealing with Karen was great and she was always quick to respond to any queries. Norbert was there to welcome us and show us the apartment. We had a great chat with him whilst he was briefing us on everything including the neighbourhood. Would definitely recommend to anyone else.
Great 2 bedroom 2 bath near subway, very clean and quiet
We really enjoyed the apartment. There 4 of us - my husband and me and two 17 yr old girls. They had downstairs bedroom with en suite bathroom. We were upstairs with hall bath. Our shower was great. Bedrooms are large. The apt is very clean and nicely furnished and very quiet. The pool is across Riverside in the state park. We didn't use the jacuzzi. Window AC units did fine. We were there for a heat wave and even being gone all day with AC off, the apt was not hot. Karen lives upstairs and was responsive to the few questions we had. Only thing we could have wanted was a microwave. Subway is 2 blocks away. Coffee shop, a grocery, restaurants, pharmacy, McDonald's nearby. Little farther north than we originally wanted but we had to have 2 baths. It was a good find and we recommend it.
A perfect place to experience all New York has to offer.
2 stories of such New York character! Karen's Harlem gem is close to the subways, parks, shops, and has everything you might need for a quiet night in after exploring the city. The nights were quiet and the days held the potential energy of what we wanted to make of our stay. Karen was available by phone or email, and always respected our privacy.
Many thanks to our hosts!!
This Apartment - Above and Beyond Expectation
We are just returning from our vacation in New York and staying at Karen's apartment in Harlem. She was helpful in answering questions that we had as this was our first visit to New York.
The apartment was just as expected and maybe even a bit better. It was clean and supplied with everything you would need to make our stay very enjoyable - extra towels, housecoats, coffee, food, spices for cooking - little extras to go the extra mile.
Being 2 families and having 2 bathrooms and 2 bedrooms made for some privacy and space for us. Bed and linens were clean and very comfortable - hotel quality.
We highly recommend this apartment if you are planning a stay in New York. It was a 2 minute walk to the Subway with a direct 20 minute ride into Manhattan. A great place to stay!
