Runs from 110th Street to 115th Street, St. Nicholas Avenue to the Hudson River.

A cross between the Upper West Side and Harlem, Morningside Heights boasts some of the city’s most impressive architecture. Turn-of-the-century apartment buildings – many adorned with marble lobbies grand enough to house a presidential reception – and row houses dominate the neighborhood. The expansive pre-war co-ops located on Riverside Drive in Morningside Heights offer amazing views of the Hudson River. Condos with flowing layouts, graciously proportioned rooms, and the high ceilings that make Uptown living so elegant are also abundant in the Morningside Heights area.

More Once referred to as the Academic Acropolis of Manhattan, Morningside Heights is certainly known for its numerous scholarly institutions — Columbia University, Barnard College, Teachers College and Manhattan School of Music, to name a few. Yet, apartments are for sale as well as for rent because Morningside Heights is more than just a “college town.” For example, it is home to St. John the Divine, the world’s largest gothic Cathedral, where construction was new in 1892 and continues using modern technology today. Morningside Heights, though, is not all limestone, granite and Gothic spires. Broadway, filled with bookstores, cafés, specialty stores and restaurants galore, is the main thoroughfare of Morningside Heights. Morningside Park (named for the east-facing slope that catches the morning sun) is a 30-acre oasis of rugged hills. Deemed too difficult to develop apartments on, it was designed as a cultivated wilderness by the famed architects of Central Park. Fifty-foot high rock precipices, playgrounds, renovated ball fields and picnic areas are perfect for an adventure or an afternoon of luxurious relaxing. And nine months out of the year, the park hosts a weekly farmers market. Also, not to be missed – 267-acre Riverside Park features a bird sanctuary, a skate park and a fine set of clay tennis courts just to the south. Less
