Push open the heavy iron door and enter Fahnestock House! We're here to provide more than just a place to sleep. High ceilings, large windows, lime-washed walls and furnishings collected over time. Simple, but luxurious.

The space
Our home was built by Return E. Fahnestock in the 1880's. When we purchased it in 2008, it was in a state of serious disrepair. We have slowly been bringing it back to life over the last 12 years. This flat is named after the Fahnestock's grandaughter, Elizabeth.

History welcomes you and invites you to enjoy this third floor space. A cozy bedroom with nooks and crannies make it special. The antique headboard and original bathroom corner sink all make you think of times past. Head on through the sunny living room, the old floors creaking beneath your feet. A great place to longe with a book or relax in the evening with some quality netflix time. Enjoy a leisurely cup of coffee perched at the window bar. The original windows form what we call “the tower”. A lovely place to watch the world go by.

The kitchenette has a stove, mini fridge and microwave. There is a great leather chair and couch with a tv/with bluray player for watching movies. The queen bed features an antique brass headboard from Italy and a memory foam mattress. The bathroom was just remodeled, however we were able to keep the original tub and corner sink. Most of the walls feature a lime wash treatment and many of the furniture pieces are collected items. All things we loved about our European travels.

We invite you to follow along on our insta account @ fahnestockhouse. We talk about all things House reno and Airbnb goodies!

Guest access
Guests will enter the house through the very heavy iron doors original to the house. You will pass through the foyer with an original mural (hopefully to be restored one day!) and up the main staircase all the way to the top and the door is marked with a 3.

Other things to note
The TV does not have an antennae, meaning it can only be used with the bluray player to watch movies on dvd or through netflix and other apps. Guests will have access to our netflix account using a guest profile.

Street parking in front of the house is free all weekend long and 6pm - 8am weekdays. It is metered parking during the weekdays at the rate of $1.50/hour. Some of the nearby side streets(Lemon and Lime) have free parking and would be available anytime.

This is a third floor apartment and requires you to climb a lot of stairs.
