West Harlem, NY —
West Harlem is my favorite neighborhood in Upper Manhattan!

I love the Parisian and multicultural feel of this beautiful Manhattan enclave nestled between Morningside Park, St. Nicholas Ave and the Hudson River. It’s very easily accessible on its eastern side with the A, B, C, D subway lines and on its western side with the 1 train, it is also conveniently accessible with the M3, M4, M5 bus lines.

West Harlem has a multitude of bars and coffee shops offering a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. My favorites of these are Hamilton Bakery, Chipped Cup on Broadway, Hungarian Pastry Shop, Sugar Hill Café and Monkey Cup on Amsterdam

It’s also the home to some of NYC’s most beautiful architecture, with beautiful wide airy avenues, truly giving a Parisian feel to the area.
