Morningside Heights is encompassed by the area between Riverside Drive on the east and Morningside Drive on the west, as well as 110th Street to the south and 125th Street to the north and defined by the presence of Barnard College and Columbia University. But there's more to this upper Manhattan neighborhood than college town energy, although there's plenty of that.
While much of Morningside Heights' notoriety comes thanksto a wealth of locations with prized places in NYC history -- from Columbia University to Beat Generation hangout The West End Bar to the Cathedral of St. John the Divine to Tom's Diner, the hangout for the gang on Seinfeld -- there is no shortage of new construction condominium development in the neighborhood. The Apex, completed in 2010, offers residents views of Central Park and Columbia University, as well as an impressive suite of amenities. And 88 Morningside Avenue's views of Morningside Park and Central Park has made it another of the neighborhood's new construction condominium success story. A college town and more, Morningside Heights is still writing its own history.
