Not everyone can say they've lived in a historic, 19th-century landmark in this city! Feel extraordinarily lucky to be a part of Doctors' Row, featured in guidebooks and shows, including Boardwalk Empire—all of Harlem's history with modern amenities, including a brand new Whole Foods two blocks away! Easy commute anywhere in Manhattan, Metro North train station with views for days, lively, local uptown scene, bordering Columbia's campus.
Guest are expected to treat Doctors' Row as the restored, historic landmark that it is. Quiet and respectful visitors only.
No smokers of any kind. Likewise, the house was built in the early 19th century, so there are three flights of stairs that are fairly narrow; not ideal for guests with bulky luggage.
A Harlemite for more than a decade and an adjunct at nearby Columbia University, your host is a writer who's written about food, drink, travel, and culture for the Wall Street Journal, US Airways, Air Canada, The New Yorker, and WHERE Magazines. Known for her expertise on all things New York, she also runs an underground supper club and is happy to guide you on a "chicken and waffles" (!) tour of Harlem.
