New Manhattan Avenue Historic District

Manhattan Avenue Historic District
The Landmarks Preservation Commission recently created a new historic district in Morningside Heights on the Upper West Side.
The newly created historic district is comprised of 40 buildings on Manhattan Avenue between 104th and 106th Streets. Unlike many of Manhattan's earlier row houses, which were primarily built with brownstone facades in the classical style, the structures in the new Manhattan Avenue district combine Gothic, Queen Anne and Romanesque features.
Originally called "New" Avenue when it was created in 1868, Manhattan Avenue starts at 100th Street and continues to 125th street where it merges with St. Nicholas Avenue.
Manhattan Avenue irregularly divides Morningside Heights and West Harlem. Morningside is West of Manhattan Ave including Columbia University, Saint John the Divine and Morningside Park. To the East of Manhattan Ave but west of Frederick Douglas Boulevard (AKA Central Park West below 110th Street.) is considered West Harlem.
New York City now has 87 historic districts. The new designation means property owners need to get the Landmarks Commission approval for changes to building exteriors.
