About this home

Take in exciting, bold and modern pop art while relaxing in a stylish and spacious penthouse apartment! Beautiful two-bedroom apartment. Entire top floor of our townhouse. After a day filled with NYC adventures, the Pop! Art Penthouse provides a quiet, restful place to take a break and unwind. Steps away from the 2/3 subway. We can’t wait to meet you!

The Space:

About the Home

• Each bedroom contains a queen-sized bed

• The pull-out in the living room can comfortably accommodate two guests

• Alternatively, there are two single rollaway beds if guests prefer to keep the sofa put away

• Crib (pack-and-play) and high chair available on request

• High speed Wi-Fi

• Smart TV and Apple TV with Netflix, Hulu, and other premium services

• Amazon Alexa with Spotify

• Smart lighting via Philips Hue

• Keypad entry systems on the door to the building and the door to the unit so check-in is very easy (and, there is no need to carry around keys)

• The kitchen is stocked with all of the tools you will need to prepare or order in a meal (availability of staple ingredients varies)

About the Area

• Nestled in the heart of Harlem, this apartment is located on a quiet, safe, tree-lined street

• Steps away from the 2/3 subway lines, and within easy walking distance of the B/C subway

• Harlem’s vibrant food and beverage, cultural, and nightlife scenes surround this unit, and everything that the rest of New York City has to offer is just a short subway ride away.

Guest Access:

Guests have exclusive use of the two-bedroom apartment. There are keypad entry systems on the door to the building and the door to the unit (code will be sent prior to arrival), so check-in is very flexible.

The Neighborhood:

Welcome to the authentic, culturally rich Manhattan neighborhood of Harlem. This neighborhood, a short subway ride away from downtown Manhattan, is located just north of Columbia University in Morningside Heights and the Upper West Side. Beautiful, busy, and bursting with personality, Harlem is home to coffee shops, museums, shopping, and incredible restaurants.

And did we mention it was once home to Alexander Hamilton?

In the early 20th century, our neighborhood was the home of the Harlem Renaissance, an explosion of African-American cultural movements spanning dance, music, theater and art. That rich heritage is still present today, and you will love getting to experience it.

Our apartment is located on a quiet, safe, tree-lined street, steps away from the 2-3 subway and two blocks away from the ABC subway, connecting you to all of Manhattan. For a relaxing walk, head two blocks to St. Nicholas Park near the City College of New York and check out the Alexander Hamilton Grange National Monument. Or, check out all that’s happening on Harlem’s famous 125th Street, lined with stores and famous entertainment venues, like the Apollo Theater. View amazing art at the Studio Museum, scope out the National Jazz Museum, the Schomburg Center for Black Culture and El Museo del Barrio.

Looking for live music? Look no further. Harlem is a music innovation hub. Check out Amateur Night at the Apollo (Wednesdays), Minton’s, the Showmans Jazz Club. Or, grab a tasty libation at Bier International or 67 Orange Street.

Hungry? You’re in luck. Harlem has the best food in New York (but we may be biased!). Local favorites Red Rooster, Harlem Shake, Chez

Lucienne, Corner Social, and Melba’s can get you started. But that’s only scratching the surface.

Enjoy all Harlem has to offer, or hop on the subway and find yourself deep in the heart of Manhattan’s cultural attractions.
