Morningside Heights, Manhattan New York a great place to live

Real Estate Agent with Douglas Elliman Real Estate

Morningside Heights is bounded by the Upper West Side to the south, Morningside Park to the east, Harlem to the north, and Riverside Park to the west. The streets that form its boundaries are 110th Street on the south, Riverside Drive on the west, 125th Street on the north, and Morningside Drive to the east. The main thoroughfare is Broadway. With the recent gentrification of Bloomingdale, the neighborhood immediately to the south of Morningside Heights, the southern boundary of this region is sometimes stretched to 106th Street and at times even 96th Street.

The neighborhood has also been referred to as a "college town" within New York City, the "Academic Acropolis," the "Acropolis of New York," and "Bloomingdale Village." School includes: Columbia University, Barnard College, Union Theological Seminary, New York Theological Seminary, Jewish Theological Seminary of America, Manhattan School of Music, Teachers College, Bank Street College of Education, St. Hilda's & St. Hugh's School, The School at Columbia University, Bank Street School for Children, The Cathedral School, New York, and for the younger residents, Columbia Greenhouse nursery school.

Morningside Heights Food: Restaurants & Groceries

TOM'S is known as the Seinfeld diner, although the actual Seinfeld did not film there, but that is the diner the characters often meet and chat. It is best to come during the week, as on the weekends are a tourisy diner. The Broadway shake is key, as are French Fries with gravy. The roast chicken dinner is good.

French fries with gravy? Really? That's something I'd expect to see on a menu in one of our rural towns down here. I guess a diner, is a diner, no matter where you are =)  And my parents would probably order those in a heartbeat!

You did an excellent job of describing the surroundings. So good, that I almost feel like I'm there! Very vivid description =)
