We stayed in one of Dennis`s 119th Street Harlem apartments for 4 days in mid October. We found Dennis to be a very experienced hospitable host with a professionally run three (I think) brownstone apartments in a quiet street just off the main (Malcolm X) boulevard,
The apartment was large, sensibly refurbished and had all the utensils / furniture etc we needed. Dennis the owner knows the area and was a good source of advice. The New York subway system works - but needs to be thought through somewhat first if you haven`t used US subways previously.
We were initially a bit "wary" of staying in Harlem but we absolutely didn`t need to be and it was certainly much quieter and quite possibly safer than the near-Times- Square (39th Street) hotel we had stayed in several weeks before.

Harlem Hideaway is an oasis of cool, in this electrifying city, New York. We've been to NYC many times but this is our first time staying in Harlem. Staying at the Hideaway was delightful and convenient for Central Park and Museum Row. And because the 2 & 3 line run all the way to the Financial District, it was also convenient for our trip to see the 9/11 Memorial. We plan to return (and recommend the Hideaway to our friends as well.)
