Hamilton Heights

Manhattan’s Hamilton Heights is something of a mystery to most New Yorkers, but don’t let the obscurity fool you; the neighborhood is rich in history and beautiful architecture. The primarily residential area is somewhat hidden by its out of the way location – it includes the Manhattanville neighborhood and runs from West 125th Street to West 155th between the Hudson River and Edgecomb Avenue. The quiet spot is principally known for City College on 137th Street, which is notable for its remarkable gothic architecture and academic excellence. This charming neighborhood has many angled streets that disrupt the grid and smaller buildings that give many sections an open, spacious feel not found in many other Manhattan neighborhoods
