Why Ray Wick chose Harlem

This private, full-floor apartment is located in a private Owner occupied townhouse, not a large anonymous apartment building. Although you will be self-sufficient in your apartment, the Owner is always available to you for whatever you may need during your stay: tips on sites and getting around NYC, arranging taxi service, emergency repairs, restaurant advice. Much like a private concierge. The townhouse is safe and secure with multiple entry locks, fire & safety systems, well-lighted entry and stairways, outside video security. Your family can be assured of privacy, safety, cleanliness and convenience. The neighborhood is served by 5 Subways with the nearest only a 2 block, 2 minute walk. All destinations are only a few minutes away.

What makes this apartment unique

Your private townhouse apartment will make you feel like your are returning home at the end of each day. Spacious enough to spread out and relax with all the conveniences of home: a fully equipped kitchen, high-def cable TV, free W-Fi, and, of course, big comfortable beds. Live your holiday like a successful New Yorker.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The apartment was close to the Metro line 1 where we felt safe walking to catch the subway. Ray, the owner, was very informative in showing us all of Manhattan highlights on the map on our first day. It was very helpful to understand the whereabouts of each neighborhood borough when taking the subway. Thank you, Ray!

Comfort and friendliness in Upper Manhattan

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my Mother spent six wonderful days at Ray's comfortable spacious and well located brownstone apartment. The area has everything...its predominantly Hispanic with a mix of students from the nearby Columbia University...everybody is so friendly ..chatting and smiling outside busy shops and cafes...we never felt anything other than safe walking around the area both a night time and during the day...the location is as Ray had said a short subway ride from downtown Manhattan so essentially you have the best of both worlds and always have the retreat and comfort of returning to your apartment after a busy day shopping or sightseeing around the city...I've stayed in a hotel downtown before but never again...the sense of living in a living breathing community is more enriching and leaves one with greater sense of having experienced a city. The local Grange restaurant has to be visited (Great Burgers and fine craft beer with lovely friendly staff) ..Cafe was our daily breakfast haunt (simple delicious breakfasts and homemade muffins to die for!..great coffee and hot chocolate too and yes, more friendly staff)...nearby River side park is a must..I ran through it each morning and alongside the Hudson River and down to the northern tip of Central park....picturesque and peaceful and safe..General Grants memorial building can be seen near the entrance to the park and is worth a viewing....one evening I went to the Smoke Jazz club (2751 Broadway) where you can enjoy live Jazz and eat good food at same time (be sure to phone and book as it sells out)...So...yes, I would highly recommend this Apartment and will certainly return for more of the same...Ray was a fantastic host ...meeting us at the Apartment showing us around and giving us all the information on the area including a useful map. On our departure he arranged a Cab to JFK and looked after our Bags while we enjoyed our last day in New York...10 out of 10 :)

Fantastic Accomodations!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I stayed at this apartment for 12 days while she participated in a summer dance intensive program and we were completely satisfied by our experience. The apartment exceeded our expectations in every way. The property is very close in proximity to all of the conveniences that you need... food market, drug store, restaraunts,etc... It takes just a few minutes to walk to the subway. We traveled into the city every day via the subway, it was easy to navigate and reasonably priced if you buy an unlimited pass for the week. The apartment was clean, well equipped, and spacious. We were able to prepare meals, and have plenty of space to relax at the end of the day. The apartment is located in a very quiet community and we felt very safe. Ray, the owner, is wonderful! He is very accomodating and helpful. We felt like we had our own personal conceirge during our stay. He helped explain the subway system, provided a multitude of restaurant and sightseeing suggestions and helped us secure a taxi upon departure. You could stay at a hotel, however, it will cost significantly more and you will not have nearly as much space. I am glad we chose to stay in Ray's apartment and would highly recommend it.

Excellent place to stay for a trip to NY

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was neat and had everything that was needed. Ray was wonderful in seeing that all of our needs were met. He had a map and outlined the places we wished to visit and showed us how to get there. He reserved the taxi for the return trip to the airport. The apartment was clean with plenty of towels, etc.

Im Urlaub leben wie ein New Yorker!

  • 5 of 5

Mein Freund und ich haben 9 Nächte in Rays Townhouse in einer multikulturellen Nachbarschaft in Hamilton Heights verbracht!

Das Haus befindet sich in einer Seitenstraße zum Broadway. Viele Restaurants und Cafes sind in unmittelbarer Umgebung, ebenso wie ein Supermarkt, eine Wäscherei, mehrere Kioske, eine Drogerie. Der Riversidepark am Hudson ist fußläufig (<1km) zu erreichen.

Das City College in der Nachbarschaft sorgt für studentisches Flair.

Die Verkehrsverbindungen sind prima:

Die Metrostation ((Linie 1 über über Times Square bis South Ferry) ist ca. 2 Min entfernt, ebenso wie verschiedene Bushaltestellen ober- und unterhalb der Wohnung.

Das Haus ist sehr gut abgesichert und bewacht (schmiedeeiserne Tore, Kamera). Die Wohnung liegt im 1. OG. Sie ist sehr geräumig und gepflegt. Sie ist gemütlich eingerichtet und wir fühlten uns dort sofort wohl. In der Küche können Speisen gut zubereitet und gelagert werden. Bei großer Hitze sorgt die Klimaanlage für angenehme Temperaturen.

Ray war sehr gastfreundlich und hilfsbereit. Er gab uns Tipps für die Stadterkundung und die nähere Umgebung. Wenn wir Fragen hatten, konnte er uns stets helfen.

Für den nächsten New York-Aufenthalt ist Rays Townhouse auf jeden Fall die erste Wahl!!!

Fabulous location, apartment and Ray!

  • 5 of 5

Located 2 blocks from the subway and a quick ride to everything. The apartment had everything we needed and Ray was the perfect host. We felt safe and secure inside and out. Several fun restaurants within walking distance. This place has it all!

A Fabulous Townhouse Residence in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The Apartment is precisely as advertised and the Owner is always available. The Apartment is spotless and spacious with plenty of room and very comfortable beds and sofabeds for our family. At the end of a long day of sightseeing, it is a joy to return to this Apartment and spread out and relax and prepare for the next day. The neighborhood is safe and convenient to all sites. The Subway is a short walk from the Apartment and in only a few minutes travel you are close to everything. Traveling on the Subway is very safe, fast and convenient. Upon arrival the Owner gave us a thorough orientation to the neighborhood, getting around, and money-saving tips that perhaps saved us hundreds of $$$. We would not hesitate to recommend this Apartment. It is a real find in NYC. We'll be back again.
