Manhattan Neighborhood: Manhattan Valley

Manhattan Valley is the Manhattan neighborhood between Central Park West and Broadway from 96th Street to 110th Street on the Upper West Side of Manhattan. 

Named for the slope of Manhattan Avenue, this neighborhood has a few quiet blocks with gorgeous townhouses, brownstones and the distinctive architecture along Central Park.

In 2007 the Landmark Preservation Commission designated Manhattan Avenue between 104th and 106th Streets a historic district comprised of 40 buildings.
Many of Manhattan's earlier row houses were primarily built with brownstone facades in the classical style but the structures in the 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.

One of the first changes to the neighborhood was the conversion of the former New York cancer Hospital site into new condos at:

The Castle, 445 Central Park West, Manhattan Valley,
455 Central Park West between 105th and 106th Streets.

The castle like structure is a restored French Renaissance style chateau building originally built in 1887. It has intricate wrought iron gates, arcaded loggia and imposing circular towers and slate roof. The building has 5 round turrets because at the time it was built corners were thought to harbor germs.

Columbus Square is a new 710 unit glass rental complex built on Columbus and Amsterdam Avenue. The five-building residential complex houses two private schools and also has about 500,000 square feet of retail space, including a Whole Foods and TJ Maxx. Amenities include gyms, roof decks, bowling lanes and a pool. 

Avalon Morningside Park a new rental building at One Morningside Drive and 110th Street, has a 2 story glass entrance with 296 units.

The Ariel, two new luxury residential towers across the street from each other at 99th & Broadway. One (built next to the famous art deco landmark Metro Theatre) has 31 stories with 73 units. The other is 37 stories with 65 units.
