Maya Angelou
’s writing hastaken her all over the world. She’shad the chance to see everythingthat dierent cultures, countriesand neighborhoods have to oer. Her op-portunities to choose a new place to livehave been ample and varied. Yet, she con-tinuously returns back to Harlem where sheowns a home on 120th street in Mount Mor-ris Park. The same thing that constantly drawsAngelou back to Harlem is drawing tons o newbuyers to the emerging neighborhoods o Up-per Manhattan. It is the welcoming communityand comorting eeling o home. There’s a to-getherness elt in the areas o Upper Manhat-tan that binds the residents and creates a truecommunity atmosphere.Whether you are new to the neighborhood orhave been a resident or many years, it doesn’tmatter, you are embraced as part o the com-munity right away. The area is quickly becom-ing home to all dierent types o individuals,urther adding to the diversity o this histori-cally rich and cultural neighborhood. Thereare opportunities or everyone, rom excellentgut-renovation brownstone investments orthe savvy businessman to brand new condo de-velopments or the young proessional to quietsuburban streets where a amily o ve couldlive comortably and saely.
Diversity is Key
“The key to Upper Manhattan is its di-versity,” says Anthony DeVivio, Directoro Sales at Halstead Property’s Harlem o-ce and Harlem resident. “What we’re see-ing are younger people, business-men and amilies moving into theneighborhoods who want a largespace without breaking their in-come. The area just has some incredible space. It’s alsoseeing a growing inrastructure, new bustling busi-nesses and condo developments, big banks and su-permarkets, gourmet restaurants. There’s accessibletransportation. It has everything you need in the cityand yet it’s a true neighborhood, maybe even the lastreuge or that neighborhood mentality in all o Man-hattan… and it’s strength lies in the diversity.”This diversity is apparent in all aspects o the neigh-borhoods, rom the people to the buildings to the his-tory to the culture. Everywhere you look you noticethe vast assortment and variety, the dierent charac-teristics that blend together to orm a solid and stablecommunity. Chiey, you notice the progression andtransition o an up-and-coming area.Upper Manhattan denotes the most northern regiono Manhattan. It lies above 96th Street and consistso Inwood, Marble Hill, Washington Heights (includ-ing Hudson Heights, Fort George and Sherman Creek),Harlem (including Sugar Hill and Hamilton Heights),Manhattan Valley and Morningside Heights. It is a dy-namic and lively area and is quickly becoming the new“it” neighborhood on the island o Manhattan.“Buyers in the Heights are looking or value, space,quality o lie, nature and community,” says PerryPayne, Senior Vice President at Prudential DouglasElliman, “and we have it all in spades in WashingtonHeights and Inwood. These neighborhoods are ull o creative, smart and involved residents who love hav-ing all Upper Manhattan has to oer.”Simone Song, Founder and Principle Broker o Si-mone Song Properties, LLC agrees that the experiencein Upper Manhattan is unlike anything else, in bothliestyle and aordability. She sees “An establishedneighborhood where you get much more value oryour money. Hudson Heights and Inwood are uniquein that the residents have the cosmopolitan mindset o New York City, but the ambiance o a small town. Plus,the river views, the parks, the quiet, are all qualitiesthat are ound in Northern Manhattan.”The residential streets are lined with trees and gor-geous brownstones and are within walking distanceto nearby parks and schools. The humming businessstreets display commercial chains such as Best Buy,
