Upper Manhattan

Upper Manhattan denotes the more northerly region of the New York City Borough of Manhattan running from 110th street up to 155th street. This definition of Upper Manhattan takes in the neighborhoods of Marble Hill, Inwood, Washington Heights, and parts of the Upper West Side (Morningside Heights and Manhattan Valley) and Upper East Side (the portion of Spanish Harlem south of 110th Street).

The tree-lined streets are home to some of the most elaborate architecture in Manhattan. In addition to the university, there are several other institutions such as the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine, host to numerous concerts, plays, and dance performances throughout the year, as well as Riverside Church, that make this neighborhood so culturally rich.

Its northern end has long been regarded as less notable and often associated with Harlem, though Morningside Heights and Manhattan Valley actually bear little resemblance to Harlem. Manhattan Valley has not quite gentrified, fitting the mold of other Upper Manhattan neighborhoods, but Morningside Heights boasts one of the borough's lowest crime rates, as well as the world-renowned Columbia University.

With the architectural beauty and relatively inexpensive apartments, Upper Manhattan is a great place to find a bargain while still living in the city. A subway will have you in Midtown in minutes, but with the many great restaurants, bars and shopping spots, you may never leave to begin with.
