When people discuss living in Manhattan, they often overlook the island’s northernmost neighborhoods: Harlem, Fort George, Hamilton Heights, Hudson Heights, Inwood, Manhattanville, Morningside Heights, and Washington Heights. And that’s a shame, because this area is perhaps the most naturally beautiful section of the borough, with expansive parks that include Manhattan’s only remaining natural forest and salt marsh.
If hiking, biking, sunrises over the Harlem River, and sunsets over the Hudson River aren’t enough for you, Upper Manhattan is also home to the Cloisters, part of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and Manhattan’s sole remaining farmhouse, Dyckman Farmhouse. Restaurants and bars such as Kismat and Le Chéile feature live music and comedy; bookshops and other venues offer classes on everything from salsa dancing to writing. Plus, Inwood and Washington Heights are among the most affordable neighborhoods in Manhattan. What’s not to love?
