My wife and I stayed at the Sankofa for 11 nights in August. All I can say is that Debbie the owner made us part of her family and that thanks to her our stay in NYC was so much more than a holiday, it was special time for us.
The restored Brownstone, the weekend jazz nights, the Brooklyn people, the warm welcome and care given by Debbie - the whole experience was wonderful. The Sankofa is unique and I cannot recommend it enough. If you need somewhere to stay in NYC then you should check out the Sankofa. You may also be lucky enough to meet Eric Lemon but that's another story.
Seriously, love Debbie, love the Sankofa, love Brooklyn - go see for yourself.
