I lived in one of the studios in this brownstone while I was studying at Columbia last year and I cant recommend it enough! I felt at home very quickly - the apartment and building are very well kept and Luther and his team work year round to maintain it in the great shape that it is in. Also, as a single girl, I felt very safe both in the area and building, particularly because Luther and his family live there too and he is accessible at any time of day. Finally, the location is fantastic, with parks, wonderful restaurants, and the subway just around the corner. My only regret is that I only got to know Luther and his family towards the end of my stay as it was the best part of my experience! They are wonderful people, who unlike most landlords, care for their tenants and for building meaningful relationships with them. So if you are looking for a home away from home, this is the place for you!
