The space

An urbane, bright study-guest room in the storied Sugar Hill Historic District--the Washington Heights bluff overlooking Harlem. Conveniently located near the blue A/C subway (metro) line and several bus routes. Ideal for the intrepid single traveler seeking an urban experience steeped in authentic neighborhood ambiance.

The study-guest room's living area includes a firm twin (single) bed, 3-drawer clothes chest, hanging closet space, a/c and a lockbox with key for valuables. Study area includes a work desk, free wifi and shelves of NYC-related books, maps and guides at your disposal.

The fully-equipped kitchen is also shared.

Any race, nationality or gender and gay-friendly.

I offer every guest a free walking tour of several sites of local interest, including:

* Dance Theatre of Harlem
* Marjorie Elliot’s Jazz Parlor
* Hispanic Society Museum
* Morris-Jumel Mansion
* Trinity Church Cemetery & Mausoleum
* Church of the Intercession
* Yankee Stadium (Bronx)
* Hamilton Grange
* Convent Avenue Baptist Church
