Spacious living and dining room space (15x20''= 300sq ft) with access to a balcony offering a tremendous colorful view where you can clearly see the Yankee's Stadium, the Hudson River and the gorgeous George Washington Bridge. Kitchen is also open for use, not very spacious but symmetrical and perfect for film shoots. Funky bathroom and Bedroom's hall also open for use. Cultural safe neighborhood (just not very clean, but that's expected from Harlem... or New York in general). Note: A little noisy on Sundays due church activity downstairs, so for film shoots try to avoid the weekends if you're recording sound.
Even though the outside hallways look very cinematic, we are not allowed to shoot or gather here. Please keep everything inside the apartment. Smoking is allowed only at the balcony area, balcony's door must be closed so the smoke doesn't come in. Bedrooms are completely out of reach. Can't stay later than 10pm to avoid noise issues with neighbors.
Sofia was kind and flexible. She allowed us to arrange the furniture how we needed it for the party, and all of the guests had an awesome time blowing bubbles off the balcony. We appreciated her flexibility and kindness.
Sofia's space was magnificent and amazing for a friend's birthday party. Clean and well kept. Sofia was a joy to work with on this, was responsive, kind, and helpful. If you are wondering whether or not to get this place for 2 hours or more, let me be clear you should, because I was unsure to pick anything if at all and picking this made my day and made someone's birthday special and it will too for you! A Great Place and a wonderful Host!
