Thread: Whats wrong with Morningside Heights?

  1. #1

    Default Whats wrong with Morningside Heights?

    Ive found a couple of Apartments and studios in this area at good prices so Im wondering whats the catch? I dont mind if its a loud place or anything like that I just want to know the truth

    Morningside Heights is nice; Columbia is located there.

    Realtors, however, often re-brand dicier areas with the names of their better neighbors.

    Just be sure you're actually on the heights.

    Can you tell me an estimated range for the heights? Oh and are their any real bad areas near there? I dont mind loud or busy. I actually like LIFE! just not danger. lol

    You're OK south of 120th Street and west of Morningside Drive.

    The advice above is true about 120th st. The reason it is cheap is the area down the hill from Columbia ( the "heights" previously referred to) is right next to Harlem.

    Sorry, that's not "next to" Harlem- it is Harlem.
