"A School Zone With Apartments Thrown In"

This street has a lot of apartment buildings, but what is even more amazing are the schools on the street. Each school system that was found had a large playground for kids to play in. This really made the area convenient for the students.

I would definitely recommend this street for parents with children.
Pros
  • A peaceful neighborhood feel

"West 144th Street"

Another residential block in Morningside Heights. This street lacks the grandeur of some of the other busier streets, but nonetheless offers some nice housing options for those of you trying to save some cash. There are all kinds of little shops and stores to buy household goods for extremely cheap, and as you enter the more predominantly Dominican neighborhood, the food becomes very authentic.


This street is close to the A train at 145th and is pretty heavily trafficked by people.
