The Harlem sub-neighborhood of Hamilton Heights boasts some of the city’s most desired townhouses, and is best known for “Strivers’ Row.” Parts of Strivers’ Row were designed by the noted architecture firm of McKim, Mead and White, and in addition to the gardens in back, many of the townhouses have lovely staircases, fireplaces, pocket doors, and moldings. Even in the surrounding area, the conjunction of great subway access (the train stops at 135th and 145th streets) and beautiful row houses makes Hamilton Heights a lovely place to rent or buy a home.
