Top 20 Morningside Heights, New York vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
Located just above the Upper West Side, Morningside Heights is most notable for its green spaces and being home to Columbia University. As you'd expect of a neighbourhood surrounding several schools, this is a popular place for the student population to live, but you'll also find long-established families living here thanks to housing that is more affordable than other parts of the city. There are plenty of coffee shops and cheap eats catering to the student population and you'll also find a number of bars, but these are restricted to Broadway and Amsterdam Avenue so the side streets, where most people live, remain quiet. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the terrific Riverside Park, which runs down almost the full Western side of Manhattan island. It's about a 35 minute train journey to reach vibrant Downtown. This neighbourhood will mainly appeal to guests visiting their kids at college.
