    Jumel Terrace Bed and Breakfast“Perched on the highest elevation in Manhattan, the neighborhood feels like a slice of Colonial Williamsburg airlifted into the city.” -NY Times

Jumel Terrace

Your pied à terre on Sugar Hill. Perched on the highest elevation in Manhattan, the neighborhood feels like a slice of Colonial Williamsburg airlifted into the city. The townhouse looks at the Morris-Jumel Mansion, George Washington’s headquarters for 1776′s Battle of Harlem Heights and home to the infamous grand horizontal, Madame Jumel.
At the time Duke Ellington dubbed the “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, Johnny Hodges and dozens of Jazz Masters.
The self-contained garden apartment shares the garden floor and private entrance of Jumel Terrace Books, an antiquarian bookshop specializing in Harlem Heights' history - from its roots in Revolution through the jazz-age Renaissance to its very Now now. It still swings.

…another June, another sunny honeymoon.

Picture a little love nest Down where the roses cling. Picture the same sweet love nest And think what a year can bring.   No more reserving a place in history. Jumel Terrace Books, Bed & Breakfast closing Aug. 1st, 2015. Whoopie.
