Dennis Decker purchased this apartment in 2000
This building is typical of the historic neighborhood. I was impressed that it still retained so much of its original form and material. However, I was very impressed by the atmosphere of the block, with friendly, open and involved neighbors.
The quiet friendly tree-lined street, proximity to express subway- only 4 stops to Times Square, closeness to neighborhood coffee shop and historic park, as well as the 125 St. corridor and Central Park.
I actually love sitting on the front stoop while having a coffee or a glass of wine. I love seeing the relaxed street life going by, and being a part of it. Since my block is dominated by private brownstones, rather than apartment buildings, it has a friendlier, small town feeling than most other neighborhoods.
We enjoyed NY, for an important part due to your charming, comfortable and quiet apartment (and its friendly and helpful landlord).
We certainly will advice friends who plan to go to The Big Apple to see whether you have plavce for them.
And may be one day we will be back in your city.
First-timer/New York 'rookies' we had NO idea where to stay on our recent trip & thus, sold on pictures & price decided on Harlem Hideaway......we feel very lucky indeed! Location is so handy to subway, neighbourhood has the best people watching, so many great places to eat & drink super close. We loved getting in amongst it and found ourselves eager to get back to our little place at the end of huge days walking this colourful city. Dennis is the perfect host, great advice for our stay, he has literally thought of everything! Beautiful building & décor, quite haven after the endless midtown crowds. Hey you can even just sit out on 'the stoop' and watch the world go by - Just do it we say!!!! Thanks Dennis & Harlem Hideaway for a most memorable time - Lynda & Dave, New Zealand
We have stayed in every unit ! We absolutely love staying at Dennis's place! We would highly recommend Harlem Hideway! We have stayed at other airbnbs across the country and Dennis's place is by far the best!
We stayed in this unit for 7 nights and absolutely loved it. Harlem was a beautiful place to stay in, everyone was so friendly. The unit is close to the subway so easy to get anywhere and its so close to Central Park.
Dennis was great to deal with, very responsive when contacted. He even printed some tickets to an Ice Hockey game for us 😊
Would highly recommend this accommodation and will be staying there when we come back to New York in the future.
Dennis is a great host and the hideaway is a good choice for a quiet, comfortable bed in a building with great character. Convenient to the subway, local food, restaurants-- we had a lovely stay.
The apartment was perfect for us! I couldn't have asked for anything better. The area is great, and everyone in the neighborhood was friendly! I highly recommend staying here!
