We have lived happily and fearlessly in friendly Harlem for 14 years, we were considered pioneers. Today the neighbourhood is changing a fast pace, and some people actually do not consider our address true Harlem! Come soon! A great mix of immigrant Africans from all countries, locals of all nationalities, young and old, families and singles. Their stores and churches dot the area, along with all national stores like Starbucks and pharmacies. Brilliantly located, it is less than 1/4 mile walk to top of beautiful Central Park, a public swimming pool and fishing, a mere 1/2 mile walk to formal Conservatory Gardens and the northern start of the famous Museum Mile on 5th Avenue. Buses right outside the building gates take you down the same east side, or Lincoln Center and Museum of Natural History west side, downtown to the Village, Soho, by express subways one block east or west offer the whole city to explore. We also offer a cottage near the beach in Hampton Bays, Long Island, a two hour drive away on the Atlantic coast.

An Anglo American family, I run my own Vintage Couture Curatorial consultancy, my husband is a Communications Director in the Health Services, two children, a boy aged 14 and a girl of 11.
