Your pied a terre on Sugar Hill. The secluded, book-lined, self-contained two/three bedroom garden apartment immerses you in Revolutionary history from the Battle of Harlem Heights through the jazz-age Renaissance to its vibrant present. The townhouse looks at the oldest house in Manhattan, the Morris-Jumel Mansion, George Washington’s headquarters for 1776′s Battle of New York and home to the infamous grand horizontal, Madame Eliza Jumel. At the time Duke Ellington dubbed the house “The Crown of Sugar Hill,” the immediate neighborhood was also home to W.E.B. DuBois, Paul Robeson, Count Basie, Lena Horne, Coleman Hawkins, Teddy Wilson, Andy Kirk, Don Redman, Canada Lee, Charles Alston, Dr. Kenneth Clark, Thurgood Marshall, and dozens of other Jazz Masters. The apartment, in what was an antiquarian bookshop specializing in those subjects, features full kitchen and bath (tub and shower, excellent pressure/hot water), a large bedroom with an antique double bed, a larger bedroom with a queen size, a sitting room with a single/daybed with desks, cable television, internet access, a/c, cassette tape & record players (plug in for MP3s), tape and LP libraries, and a full ornamental garden with a gas grill. Wine and dine al fresco on Sunday afternoons as the sounds of Marjorie Elliot’s Parlor Jazz waif from her nearby apartment.

Firstly, let me say that if you want to stay close to the 'sights' of New York this is not for you, being about an hours journey on the subway (very short distance away), down to the Wall Street area. If you want to stay...More

A host is only as good as his guest and I've been blessed with good guests. Just to say, that big claw-foot tub has a stopper under the drain, closed by a toggle under the faucet. It's a rather antique arrangement in which one takes...More
