Chez Michelle NYC, it's two rooms on the second floor of a house built in 2001, on a street lined with beautiful 19th century brownstones.
Buses and subway are a short walk from the house. Walk 20 minutes to Central Park, or ride the subway 20 minutes to Times Square.
The neighborhood has many restaurants, and supermarkets - Whole Food is opening in summer 2017. 125th Street is great for shopping.
Michelle, who lives on the first floor, will be a discreet hostess, but present if you need her, for tips and recommendations.
