Welcome

Manhattanville formed in 1806 and flourished during the 1800s as the west side counterpart to its parent village of Harlem. The wide valley around present-day Broadway and 125th Street formed a unique gateway to the Hudson River between Morningside Heights and Washington Heights. Although rural, Manhattanville was the convergence of river, railroad and stage lines, representing one of 19th-century New York City?’s most significant, residential, manufacturing and transportation hubs. As fate would have it, this once-prominent upper Manhattan suburb eventually succumbed to the advent of mass transit and its distinctive features were absorbed by the city in chase.
