Neighborhood Description

Morningside Heights is located in the northernmost section of the Upper West Side. Despite its geographical location on the UWS, Morningside Heights is referred to by many today as “Greater Harlem.”

Some also refer to it as SoHa, meaning “south of Harlem.” Before any of these names, however, the neighborhood was known in the 17th century as Vandewater's Heights. The emergence of several local higher learning institutions and universities in the late 19th and early 20th centuries led to the proposed names "Morningside Hill" and "Morningside Heights," with most of the local establishments settling on the latter by 1900.

The neighborhood has been ripe with residential buildings for several decades, tracing back to the late 1940s, when David Rockefeller started developing housing in the area. He recognized the desirability of Morningside Heights as a geographic location, in addition to the local involvement of several universities like Columbia in the area. Morningside Heights remains one of the Manhattan neighborhoods with the most higher-learning institutions. In addition to Columbia, this list includes Teachers College, the Manhattan School of Music, and Barnard College. As a result, many students, professors, and faculty members inhabit the neighborhood. Racial diversity is fully embraced, especially at private housing co-ops like Morningside Gardens, which replaced a slum upon its construction and has prided itself on being a close-knit community with varied demographics.

Along Morningside and Riverside Parks are large, impressive buildings, many of which are full service. In between these buildings, townhouses line the side streets. These townhouses are a mix of single family and multi-family structures. Morningside Heights is ideal for apartment hunters seeking new construction, as opposed to old world charm. In addition to the gorgeous Riverside Park, residents enjoy great food options like Italian eatery Max Soha and American café Flat Top.

Morningside Heights is east of the Hudson River, south of West Harlem, and west of lower Harlem. The neighborhood starts around W 110th Street and goes up to W 123rd Street. The subway is available via the 1 line at the Columbia University subway stop between W 115th and W 116th. Bus lines, such as the M4, M60, and M104, run along Broadway.
