About Morningside Heights
Morningside Heights is located on the west side of Upper Manhattan, running from West 110th to West 135th Street. The neighborhood has a reputation for having a college town vibe as it is home to Columbia University, Barnard College and the Manhattan School of Music. This has made the area popular with younger renters and students. It’s an excellent place for someone that’s looking to rent a room or share an apartment with a roommate. The large student population also means that summer rentals or short term subleases are easier to come by.
Due to the large population of younger residents, there are many coffee shops and small cafes in the area to provide places to study, socialize, and get a cheap bite to eat. Additionally, there are plenty of bars and lounges to hang out for those renters who are looking for nightlife.
Morningside Heights also has plenty of green space, making it great for pet-owners and families. The neighborhood is sandwiched between Riverside Park and the Hudson River on one side and Morningside Park on the other.
Another perk of living in Morningside Heights is the fact that rents are cheaper than on the Upper West Side. You can still find rental apartments in the area for under $2,000 per month, making the area very affordable by NYC standards. If you're looking to live it up a bit, however, there are also numerous luxury rental buildings in the area. Properties like Monarch Heights and The Enclave Apartments at the Cathedral offer tenants high-end residences with great on-site amenities.
