Uptown West, from West 125th Street to West 155th Street, from Riverside Drive to St. Nicholas and Edgecombe Avenues

Best known for “Strivers’ Row” — which is actually more than one block of Harlem townhouses that share rear courtyards — the Harlem sub-neighborhood of Hamilton Heights has some of the most-desired townhouses in New York City. Parts of Strivers’ Row were designed by the noted architecture firm of McKim, Mead and White, and in addition to the gardens in back many of the townhouses have lovely staircases, fireplaces, pocket doors, and moldings. Even in the surrounding area, the conjunction of great subway access (the train stops at 135th and 145th streets) and beautiful row houses makes Hamilton Heights a lovely place to rent or buy a home.
