Harlem: Harlem is a magical neighborhood so convenient to the rest of Manhattan yet with a history and a feel all its own. We are 2 stops away from midtown, but on a beautiful block with trees and up on a hill, where you can feel the sea breeze from the Hudson, and can walk down to the river's edge for a picnic or get to a bike path that can take you all the way down to lower Manhattan.
We are close to several historic sections such as Hamilton Heights landmark district, Sugar Hill, Striver's Row. We are so close to many major teaching institutions such as Columbia University, City College, Barnard, Teacher's College, Jewish Theological Seminary, Manhattan School of Music, Columbia Presbyterian. We are very near some gorgeous sights such as The Cloisters, St. John the Divine, Fort Tryon Park.
It is a diverse and vibrant area with plenty of history and charm.
We are a family of five in the food business and in construction. We are happy to help with travel plans and advice on food destinations and more.
This is a remarkably convenient location full of friendly families, beautiful blocks, and very pleasant to live in.
