Manhattanville is a diverse residential and industrial neighborhood in uptown Manhattan. Many residents may refer to this area as West Harlem. Like much of the city, this area has been gentrifying; Columbia University purchased a large chunk of real estate here to support its expansion.
You'll still find lots of warehouses, a live poultry market, and clothing shops along the main streets. An above-ground subway line runs along Broadway, bisecting the neighborhood. Older brick and stone apartment buildings provide most of the limited housing stock.
The West Harlem Piers Park provides two acres along the Hudson River for fishing, kayaking, or just hanging out. You'll also be near the sprawling Riverside Park.
