Exploring New York City from your holiday apartment in Sugar Hill
In the past, many people have mistakenly thought of Harlem as a single neighbourhood but it too has its own districts, with their own atmosphere. Sugar Hill got its name in the 1920s and it reflects the ‘sweet’ life of the wealthy black population who lived here. It runs from 155th to 145th Street, north to south and from Amsterdam Avenue in the west to Edgecombe Avenue in the south. Even today it is an area of handsome and substantial apartment blocks and in 2000 New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission made it a historic district.
