Manhattan Valley Movers

Manhattan Valley Movers

Tucked in the northeastern corner of the Upper West Side, Manhattan Valley, once known as the Bloomingdale District, is located between Broadway and Central Park West, south of W 110th Street and north of W 96th Street. As families and professionals are out-priced in Upper West Side proper, Manhattan Valley is becoming more and more popular. Gentrification has pushed out many Mom and Pop stores in favor of high-end shopping, although the neighborhood remains ethnically diverse. Less hectic than many other Manhattan neighborhoods, Manhattan Valley offers a more peaceful vibe.

What to Know Before Moving to Manhattan Valley

Learn more about life in Manhattan Valley before your move:

Types of Buildings

From the largest youth hostel in the nation to a hospital converted into elite condos, Manhattan Valley buildings range from 19th-century brownstones to a few sleek modern high rises. In the mid-1900s, many historic buildings were leveled and replaced with housing projects such as the Frederick Douglass Houses, between 100th and 104th Streets.

Starting in the late 1900s, the neighborhood went through a restoration that prevented additional demolition of pre-war buildings and updated many residential buildings. Fortunately, 85% of Manhattan Valley buildings were built before 1930 and remain intact. For example, the historic castle-like turreted New York Cancer Hospital was renovated into luxury condominiums that retain the beautiful original architecture. On Amsterdam Avenue, a gorgeous Victorian Gothic building, built in 1882, now serves as a youth hostel that can house 672 travelers.

Cost of Living

Although housing in Manhattan Valley is less expensive than in other areas of the Upper West Side, rents and asking prices are on the rise as gentrification continues. Property values run highest between Columbus Avenue and Central Park West.

Manhattan Valley Lifestyle

From a delightful farmers’ market to all the wonders of Central Park, the Manhattan Valley neighborhood provides a wide range of cultural, food, and recreational options. The wonderful Morningside Park’s Down to Earth Farmers’ Market, at the corner of 110th and Manhattan Ave is held under a lush canopy of trees and offers everything from asparagus to zucchini and apple strudel to zopf. From white linen brunch spots to quaint cafes, the neighborhood offers an array of restaurant and cuisine options such as Peruvian, Thai, pizzerias, soul food, posh Italian, and more. The new Whole Foods, located at Columbus Square, just north of W 97th Street, is an indication of the continuing gentrification. Diverse Manhattan Valley is a more peaceful neighborhood that offers a convenient but quieter lifestyle than many other Manhattan neighborhoods.

Manhattan Valley Neighborhood Safety

In the mid- to late-1900s, Manhattan Valley struggled with high crime that included drug use and the highest juvenile delinquency rate in Manhattan. Today, the neighborhood is significantly safer. However, if you’ll be walking at night, just be aware that some streets are safer than others. Columbus Avenue, with its lively restaurant scene, Amsterdam Avenue, and Broadway are well-lit and considered safe at night.
