Why Ray Wick chose Hamilton Heights

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

This was my third time staying at Ray’s property and just like before it did not disappoint! Ray has always been very responsive to questions and each time has greeted us at the door upon arrival. He takes the time to make sure you are familiar with his place and makes himself available should you need anything. The brownstone has always been neat and clean. And it’s such a great size at a very reasonable price. So much better than the cubicle of a hotel room at twice the price. It’s the perfect place to unwind after spending your days taking in the sights of the city. While it’s just north of the main attractions of the city the subway is super close and so easy to jump on to land you at your destination. Already looking forward to our next trip back! Thanks 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 :)

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My daughters and I throughly enjoyed staying at Ray's apartment for our week in beautiful NYC.

He couldn't have been more helpful to us with our numerous questions, being that it was our first visit. The apt was comfortable and clean as well as truly getting the feel for NY living.

The only suggestion I may have for Ray, is to purchase a "Keurig" coffee machine. We had a difficult time with the older "Mr. Coffee" maker he had in the apartment and it required filters which was really inconvenient.The pods are so much easier and better quality, in my opinion. I usually had to wait to get into town before getting my morning cup or 3!

Otherwise, we can't wait to return!

Terrific stay in Harlem!

  • 5 of 5

Not only was the location great (close to a grocery store, and only 3 blocks to subway), but Ray was a wonderful host. Met us upon our arrival, and also arranged a cab for us out to LGA, when we headed for home after 7 days. I highly recommend renting from Ray. This apartment was a big part of the reason we enjoyed our first trip to NYC so much...

An amazing stay in New York

  • 5 of 5

A very clean, comfortable apartment. There is plenty of room to spread out and to properly unpack if you're staying longer than a couple of days. The listing accurately described the apartment. The owner provided excellent customer service with the provision of maps and where to eat in the neighbour hood etc. The subway station was very close - a five minute walk away. This line took us most of the places we wanted to go. There was a local laundry on the corner about 30 metres away. You could do the laundry yourself or have it done for you. A supermarket was about a block away - you passed it on the way to or from the subway. We enjoyed the benefits of staying in a neighbour hood a bit removed from midtown and downtown Manhattan. It was good to interact with the locals and to practise some Spanish. We would definitely recommend the apartment to friends and relatives and if we return to New York we will definitely stay there again.

Fabulous stay, thanks Ray!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed on the top floor of Ray's 3 storey apartment for over a week. Great location and safe, an easy trip on subway to downtown. The apartment comfortably accommodated the 5 of us. It was our first time to NY and was great to finally met Ray who was very welcoming and quickly made us feel at home after a long flight from Australia,. Ray provided helpful tips on getting around NY and nearby places to eat. I would highly recommend his place to stay. Thanks! Richard & Michelle
