Real Estate Market Hot in Upper Manhattan

View of Upper Manhattan real estate

What was once the black sheep of Manhattan real estate, Upper Manhattan is now home to some of the hottest luxury apartments for sale. Traditionally encompassing the neighborhoods of Marble Hill, Inwood, Washington Heights, Harlem and part of the Upper West Side, Upper Manhattan contains some of the most historically rich and culturally preserved communities in New York City. New Yorkers who are searching for cheap rents and undiscovered entertainment hubs, like jazz lounges and lighthouses, have flocked to Upper Manhattan neighborhoods like Washington Heights and Harlem in recent years. For many young couples and artists, the quasi-suburban neighborhoods of Upper Manhattan have become a great alternative to buying in Midtown West and Midtown East.
