Room for Rent 4 Bedroom apartment in Harlem (NY-15872)
4 Bedrooms - Duplex, 2 Bathrooms - Sleeps 1

Halfway between Central Park and the East River is this room for rent located in a four bedroom apartment at East 105th & 2nd Avenue in Harlem. Here you won't find skyscrapers or tourist crowds, but a laid back neighborhood offering something for everyone. The duplex apartment occupies the 1st and 2nd floor (considered 1st by Europeans) of a 7-story building built in 2002 with laundry facilities and a security system.

The first room available for rent is bedroom 1 situated on the 1st floor. It is furnished with a twin sized bed, a wardrobe and dresser where you can store your belongings and has a TV with cable. There is also a mini fridge. But the highlight of this bedroom is the exclusive access to the backyard! You will appreciate having your own outdoor space to relax and sun in the summer months, or have a drink after work or school! You will share the bathroom with your first floor roommates. Going up to the second floor there is the kitchen, equipped with everything from oven and microwave to coffee maker and toaster.

* Please note that there is no access to the living room *.

All the basic amenities can be found around this apartment share. There is a "Fine Fare'' supermarket on the same block, pharmacies one block north on 106th street and many corner stores where you can get your morning coffee or last minute groceries. But there is a lot more to see in this part of Manhattan:

- The Museum Mile: designating Fifth Avenue from 82nd to 110th Street, the Museum Mile hosts no less than 10 museums, bringing richness and cultural diversity to The Upper East Side and Harlem. They include El Museo del Barrio where you can find an excellent collection of Latin American Art and the Museum of the City of New York dedicated to the culture, people, and history of New York, both half-a-mile away (800 m). A little further on 88th and 82nd streets are the world famous Guggenheim and the MET (Metropolitan Museum of Art).

- Central Park: no need to introduce this giant park in the heart of New York City, haven for strollers, athletes or daydreamers who can spend an entire day playing sports, walking around and enjoying the surroundings or simply lay down under the shade of a tree and relax!

- Restaurants: Walk 10 blocks north on 116th Street and you will find many affordable restaurants, including some of New York's best Mexican food! Try Taco Mix, Sandy, or El Nuevo Caridad. To find the original New York thin-crust pizza, head 0.8 miles (1.3 km) north to Patsy's pizza.

This area is served by the line 6 at the 103 Street / Lexington Avenue subway station. Take it uptown to go the the Bronx, or downtown for lower Manhattan or Brooklyn, passed Grand Central Station, a transit hub where you can transfer to other subway lines as well as trains to other cities.

The place is excellent! The first time I saw the room, I fell in love with it. I had a bigger room on the first floor, and it was fully furnished and noticeably quiet. The queen-size bed is also comfortable. I had my own fridge to place my stuff, and I could use the kitchen upstairs. Most remarkable is the hospitality of Izamar and Helio. Just say what you need, and Izamar and Helio are more than willing to help. You will never be disappointed to live in Izamar's house!

My experience at this apartment was absolutely beyond anything I expected to find when moving to New York. I came to the city for Graduate School and needed an apartment that was close to a subway station, quiet enough to provide a place to study, and furnished so that I would not have to bring furniture with me. This location provided all of these and more! Below I will review different qualities of the space that I find important: Neighborhood, Transportation, Room, Building, and the People.

Coming from a small town, moving to East Harlem was a big shift for me, both in terms of culture and geography. Overall, I found that the area around this apartment is cordial at first to new-comers and eventually settles in nicely to a fairly homely area. The street has many families, and oftentimes children are playing on the sidewalk and street with their parents close by. I never felt threatened when walking home at any time of the night, though exercising a certain amount of caution is still mandated as in nearly anywhere in Manhattan. There are several chain stores and restaurants within easy walking distance, as well as a grocery store and Duane Reade pharmacy. There is a strong Latin American presence to be felt in the community, and most store employees are bilingual. I even managed to learn a bit of Spanish and Portugese while I was here!

The central hub of transportation in the area is the 103rd St. station (5-10 minute walk), from which you can catch the 6-local train downtown or uptown. The line has many free connections a short ride down the line to give you access to almost anywhere in Manhattan in around 30 minutes. I also made frequent use of the buses. There is a Select M15 bus stop less than a minute from the apartment that can shuttle you around the UES and Midtown, as well as a myriad of other routes from the 101, 102, and 103 that are excellent for short hops home.

The room itself is remarkably spacious, with a high ceiling and ample storage space in the form of a large closet. While I was there the room had a queen-sized bed, a couch, coffee table, bed-side table, desk, chair, dresser, and small shelf. There was also a mini fridge, flat-screen TV, and two lamps. While the window does not have the greatest view (being a first floor), there is ample sunlight that comes in all day. I was worried about a first-floor room at first, thinking that people may look in, safety, etc., however the room looks into a small courtyard owned by the renters of this room that is well-secured. In addition, the windows sport tastefully wrought iron rods that remove any worry of intrusion. I felt very safe during my time here, both from the neighborhood and from the building itself. There is a shared bathroom on the same floor as the room that has a nice shower, toilet, sink, and mirror. There is also a second fridge in the hallway ouside of the room for tenant use (in case you have a lot of groceries). For the price being payed, this space is well worth it. I lived here for a little over a year and it quickly became home to me.

The building has a laundry facility with three washers and three dryers. Only once or twice during my entire stay were these fully occupied, so they are an excellent option for doing laundry. The building itself has security cameras and attentive tenants, as well as separate keys for entering the building and the individual apartments.

The People:
The individuals who rent out this room are among the kindest and most welcoming I have ever had the good pleasure of meeting. They made me feel instantly at home, despite being in a totally new environment. It seems that sincerely good people are a rarity in this world, but at least two of them live here.

I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a quiet, homely environment to come home to after a busy day in the city.

This apartment strong point is its location close to the subway station. There are lots of stores, restaurants, hairdressers etc around. The host family is very kind and welcoming.

I couldn't have been happier staying in this apartment.

The location is uptown, but a subway station is close nearby, as are stores you need for everyday stuff.

My roommates were absolutely wonderful, always willing to help and very sympathetic.

All in all, I had a wonderful and was very sad to leave.
