NEIGHBORHOOD HISTORY
The apartment is located between Convent and St. Nicholas Avenues on 147nd Street in historic Sugar Hill area of Hamilton Heights.
The neighborhood is safe and offers several parks, including the Jackie Robinson Park, one avenue East of the apartment; and the recently built Riverbank State Park, embedded in Riverside Park which runs along the Hudson River the length of Hamilton Heights, and is 3 blocks West of the apartment.
The community derives its name from U.S. Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, who lived the last two years of his life in the area when it was still largely farmland; specifically, he lived in what is now known as Hamilton Grange National Monument on 141st street, between St Nicholas and Convent Avenue.
Historic Hamilton Heights comprises of
- The Hamilton Heights Historic District, which is a national historic district in Hamilton Heights, New York, New York that consists of 192 contributing residential rowhouses, apartment buildings, and churches built between about 1886 and 1931. Most are three and four story brick rowhouses set behind raised stone terraces. The three churches within the district are St. Luke's, the Convent Avenue Baptist Church, and St. James Presbyterian Church. Architectural styles include Queen Anne, Romanesque, and Beaux-Arts
- Sugar Hill Historic District Extension, is a neighborhood in the northern part of Hamilton Heights, which itself is a sub-neighborhood of Harlem. The neighborhood is defined by 155th Street to the north, 145th Street to the south, Edgecombe Avenue to the east, and Amsterdam Avenue to the west.[3] The name originated in the 1920s, when the area became a popular place to live for wealthy African Americans.

Named to identify the "sweet life" in Harlem, it was a popular residential area of rowhouses for wealthy African Americans during the Harlem Renaissance, including W. E. B. Du Bois, Thurgood Marshall, Adam Clayton Powell Jr., and Duke Ellington. Langston Hughes wrote about its relative affluence in relation to Harlem in his essay "Down and Under in Harlem" published in The New Republic in 1944.
Sugar Hill/Hamilton Heights are both designated as Landmarks by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission and The National Register of Historic Places. One of the highest hills in Hamilton Heights slopes up from the Hudson River at 155th Street, and contains the Trinity Church Cemetery. Many individual buildings in the district are also landmarked, including Shepard Hall on the CCNY campus, and the building that once housed The High School of Music & Art.
The Historically Famous St Nicholas Pub is only 2 blocks North of 147th Street on 149th & St Nicholas Avenue.
In this location you escape the noise and crowds of mid- and downtown Manhattan, but the subway ride downtown takes only 15 minutes to Central Park, 18 Minutes to 42nd street- Times Square, and 20 minutes to 34th Street – Penn Station.
Hamilton Heights is the home of City College of New York (CCNY), Dance Theatre of Harlem, The Harlem School of the Arts and Aaron Davis Hall.

    This apartment is perfect place to stay for you time in New York. Its very clean and comfortable with plenty of space to relax. Its hidden away which gives lots of privacy. The very safe location is walking distance to some awesome bars, but if you need to head down town the subway 50m away. It only takes 10mins to Times Square with the express. ///This review was written by an official member of the 9flats.com team///

    Chike is super friendly, and a great conversationalist. He will generally be around most of the time and available to help out if you need anything. He has lived in NYC for quite a while and has some great knowledge on the area and figuring out subways. ///This reivew was written by an official Member of the 9flats team.///

It was an excellent place to stay and the people there were always very nice. would highly recommend this place and when I return I will for sure rent this apartment again. NY was very close and the bus was just on the other street, definitely loved it and recommend.

We diddn`t miss anything in Jeff`s appartement. This is a very modern appartement with really all you need, spacious clean, dishwasher, oven, microwave, washing maschine, modern bathrooms and very comfortable beds. The only disadvantage is perhaps the location as it is in West New York and you need to get to a bus through the Lincoln tunnel (which is sometimes crowded) or a ferry to get to Manhattan with extra costs. The bus services are very good, we never had to wait for a bus. It takes up to 30 minutes to go to Manhattan. The skyline from the New Jersey side of New York is amazing and we enjoyed to live outside the noisy and busy parts of New York.
