This apartment in Harlem offers good and bad points :

The good things : 1/ This nice crossing apartment is on the top floor of a two storey brown stone. 2/ Bedroom overlooking a quiet small garden. 3/ The owner explains that the street section is safer than elsewhere in the neighbourhood because Bill Clinton drives down the way to get to his office in Harlem 4/ External staircase recently repainted 5/ Sufficient domestic appliances. 5/ Entertaining manner of the owner - famous in the art world - of presenting NYC, the Broadway musicals and jazz bars.

The bad things : 1/ Dirt and poor maintenance : Rotten fruit in the kitchen cupboard ; old, thick spider webs at the bottom of the 2 bedside tables ; upon arrival 2 cm of dust under the bed ; dirty window panes ; black tile grouts in the bathroom ; unclean refrigerator and toilet seat ; unclean and dark carpet and rugs. 2/ Very old and uncomfortable sofa bed (in the living room) and bed mattress (in the bedroom) making a long stay painful for one's back. 3/ The owner eventually acknowledges that she didn't check the work of the cleaning company she asserts to have paid for a full cleaning service 4/ getting hot water on the top floor is a matter of patience. Only shower, not bath, is possible (leaks/closing plug) 5/ Walking from the subway station 125th Street (4/5/6) to the apartment is a security ordeal, especially during night hours. 6/ Rent too expensive

We have used this apartment twice now for interns and both times has been a great experience. The owner of the building is extremely helpful and great to work with

It's a very nice apartment in a great Harlem neighbourhood -- people are nice, hardly any hipsters, music and food are great. The owner, Thelma, is a fantastic host! Try it before the area gentrifies!

The apartment was great! It is very large in comparison to most NYC apartments. Also, the apartment was super-clean and all important appliances were available.

However, I have to say that the highlight of this apartment is the landlord. She is such a nice and helpful person. It was an amazing joy to meet her.
