Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

It will come as no surprise that your host is Parisian – the interiors here have a distinctively French feel. This sophisticated and classical restraint is paired boldly with bright graffiti artwork, a look that is just as diverse as its location. The apartment (up eighty-two steps in a building with no lift) sits at the top of a beautiful, century-old brownstone in the ever-vibrant neighbourhood of Harlem. This part of Manhattan has become hugely popular in recent years, owing to its rich history, diverse culture, outstanding food, and energetic nightlife.

About Harlem

Harlem has long been synonymous with Black culture. In the early 20th century, the neighbourhood was the setting for African-American-led movements in music, literature, dance and art – collectively known as the Harlem Renaissance – that featured innovators like Bessie Smith, Langston Hughes and Josephine Baker. That legacy is still evident today, especially along the area’s main thoroughfare, 125th Street, which is anchored by the Apollo Theater. Other highlights include...

This home is managed by Joe

This home is managed directly by its owner who will be your point of contact before and during your stay. Joe hails from Germany and Veronique (his partner) is Parisian. It was Joe whose idea it was to start hosting but, as it turns out, it is Veronique who has really embraced it and it has become something of a passion for her. They love opening up their home to guests and helping them have a great stay.
