The Harlem neighborhood at the center of West 125th Street to West 155th Street, from Riverside Drive to St. Nicholas and Edgecombe Avenues is known as Hamilton Heights.
It is best known for “Strivers’ Row,” consisting of some of the most beautifully restored historic townhouses in New York City, many with painstakingly renovated ornate staircases, fireplaces, pocket doors, and moldings. The stunning block of homes overlooks gardens in the back and offers the added value of subway access (with stops at 135th and 145th Streets).
These beautiful row houses are the best known, but overall this is a neighborhood with an unusually high concentration of historic single-family homes built in a variety of notable architectural styles ranging from Beaux-Arts to Romanesque.
Some more great reasons to call this neighborhood home are Riverbank State Park, the City College Campus of the City University of New York, St. Nicholas Park and access to the Hudson River as well as future plans that include state-of-the art environmental design and public art. Restaurants and nightlife in the area include many new and old favorites including a revamped version of the legendary El Morocco nightclub. Nearby, the neighborhoods of Inwood and Washington Heights are rich in culture and natural beauty with Fort Tryon and Inwood Hill Parks offering acres of unspoiled land and river views.
