Descriptions of 526 W 123rd St

Morningside Heights has many charming restaurants and stores, not to mention a lively nightlife, so it is not simply a place for those who are in search of a quiet, historically hallowed area (although it certainly is that too It marries the Ivy League splendor of Columbia University with the notorious neighborliness of the Upper West Side. Although this neighborhood's coffee shops fill with studious co-eds by day, Morningside Heights' streets tend to empty as the evening progresses. Diplomas aside, Morningside Heights' riverside park offers plenty of recreational space and its simple restaurants sell cheap eats. Justin DiGiulio (Aug 2014)
(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. Only blocks away from Columbia University and Subway(1, A, B, C, D) which is only a short ride to Central Park and the incredible Upper East and West Side. Hardwood floors, doorman and not to mention a patio complete this perfect opportunity for any student. Brian W. Murphy (Aug 2012)
Walking distance to the famous Apollo theater, lots of shopping and fine dining along Harlem's restaurant ro with Red Rooster, Corner social, Cove Lounge, Sylvia's and more just to name a fe with. Great for Columbia students as well as City College, only a 20 min train ride to downtown Manhattan off of the 1, 2, 3 lines. CieraMarie Mitchell (Jun 2013)

I have renovated units with close access to all local supermarkets, bars, and restaurants and walking distance to trains and buses. Allan Pimble (Jun 2013)
The vaulted ceilings and brick walls are reminiscent of a winery in Sanoma, but the neighborhood outside is classic New York. Literally 3 minutes to Columbia campus, Morningside or Riverside Parks and a short 5 block walk to the 1/A/B/C/D trains. Andrew Martinez (Aug 2012)
Measuring 1100 plus square feet this is a great way to share living expenses in this vibrant and much desired neighborhood. Althea Ffrench (Dec 2012)
