Dennis Decker purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Dennis Decker chose Manhattan
This building is typical of the historic neighborhood. I was impressed that it still retained so much of its original form and material. However, I was very impressed by the atmosphere of the block, with friendly, open and involved neighbors.
What makes this Apartment unique
The quiet friendly tree-lined street, proximity to express subway- only 4 stops to Times Square, closeness to neighborhood coffee shop and historic park, as well as the 125 St. corridor and Central Park. I actually love sitting on the front stoop while having a coffee or a glass of wine. I love seeing the relaxed street life going by, and being a part of it. Since my block is dominated by private brownstones, rather than apartment buildings, it has a friendlier, small town feeling than most other neighborhoods.

We love this home away from home
Best location and experience of NYC we could ever arrange!
My husband and I stayed for a month in this great appartment. Everything you need is just there!
We enjoyed every day. Dennis is easy to communicate and gives you lots off information abouth the neighbourhood.
With the subway around the corner you can visit every part of the city. Greenwich Village, the Bowery, Tribeca etc.
And also Queens, Hoboken , Staten Island and Brooklyn.
After a day full of impressions it was always very nice to come
" home" at the appartment.
We had a great time!!!
My wife and I spent the month of May living in this Harlem apartment to be around our daughter while she was having her first child. We have used VRBO in many places with much success : Paris, Idaho, Hawaii, and Georgia. This Harlem experience was as nice as any we have had. The property owner, Dennis, is a wonderful person as well as a top notch host. He provides a quality experience in one of the great neighborhoods of New York. We were provided everything we needed to live like we were at home and had so many interesting options to experience NYC just out our door. We loved it all.
The best place to stay in New York
We spent nearly 4 months in this charming cosy cocoon. The Parlor Apartment provides everything you need: it is luminous, calm, comfortable (very well heated during Winter which is not always the case in NY) and close to subway and bus stations. The neighborhood is also very nice. We extended our stay there because we felt at home. Dennys, the owner is the perfect host. He is very discreet but also considerate to his guests, always happy to help.
Don't hesitate to book it. it is worth it!
Second tine and hoping a third.
Our second stay at Dennis´ parlor was as good or even better than our first.
Dennis is always ready to help, to advice, to propose current events in the city according ours interests.
Any technical comments about the nice apartment, the historic house, the warm neighborhood have the big plus of the human factor, the lanlord.
We are planning our third stay.
Charming city getaway
Comfortable and cosy accommodation. Our host met us on time, he was friendly and welcoming and briming with helpful hints on how best to get around Manhattan, what to see and where to eat We felt at home.
