The community is named Hamilton Heights named after our Founding Father Alexander Hamilton, who lived the last two years of his life in the area when it was still largely farmland; We are in the northern part of Manhattan Right by Riverside Park and Hudson River definitely a drop less busy than the midtown or even upper west or east side part of the city. Yet, we have many eateries, shopping, entertainment, parks, and other venues in walking distance for you to enjoy locally.
Hamilton Heights may lack a citywide reputation for quality dining options, but residents who know where to look find a respectable set of restaurants. Broadway acts as the major thoroughfare and features many of the best culinary finds, as well as the majority of the nightlife. Although the area maintains a residential feel, a few laid-back bars and lounges mean night owls don't necessarily have to leave the neighborhood to raise a glass. Most streets are tree-lined and many have small parks and sitting areas at each corner. A variety of prestigious colleges and institutions dot the community.
Beloved by area residents, Amsterdam Social on Amsterdam Avenue near West 147th Street excels at small plates and affordable wines. Diners rave about the hanger steak with chimichurri, as well as the boozy date pudding. They serve brunch on the weekends, too, with some of the best French toast in the city. For a taste of the Far East, check out Geisha Sushi on Broadway near West 142nd Street. With no expense spared on presentation and specialty rolls like the Fire Island Roll with wasabi and the American Dream with rock shrimp tempura, this sushi joint claims a top spot among uptown Japanese eateries. A little later on in the evening, grab a few friends and head to At the Wallace to challenge your balancing skills with the largest Jenga set in the city. More than just games, this dive bar lures crowds with its low-priced beer and quirky atmosphere. With decor ranging from exposed brick to checkered floors to literal handwriting on the (bathroom) wall, At the Wallace breathes new life into the neighborhood bar concept.
History & Culture
The area now known as uptown Manhattan remained rural for centuries after Dutch colonists purchased the island of Manhattan in the 1600s. Hamilton Heights is so named because Alexander Hamilton, the first Secretary of the Treasury of the United States and one of the founding fathers, resided there in his later years. Hamilton's house still stands today as part of Hamilton Grange National Monument in St. Nicholas Park. By the early 20th century, the first of New York City's subway lines had reached the neighborhood, and developers began residential construction in earnest. The micro-neighborhood known as Sugar Hill, stretching from West 145th Street to West 165th Street in Washington Heights, historically attracted wealthy residents and thus features some of the more opulent architecture.
Un giro nei dintorni
You won't need a car when your rent a Hamilton Heights apartment -- this neighborhood, like all of Manhattan, is extremely pedestrian-friendly. And while you could spend the majority of your waking hours in Hamilton Heights with little need to leave, extensive and reliable mass transit systems make for easy access to the rest of the city. The Metropolitan Transportation Authority (MTA) operates a 24-hour subway system and the 1 train runs through the heart of the neighborhood, with the A, B, C, and D running along its eastern edge. Commuters also have access to numerous bus routes, bound for both the Bronx and all points south. Given these options, commuters to midtown Manhattan can often make the journey in as little as 30 minutes. Many residents bike, particularly in the warmer months, and they tend to compete with less traffic than in other Manhattan neighborhoods. Car owners can find street parking more easily than in areas downtown, but competition is still steep. Also, weekly street cleaning means you can't leave your car unattended for long. Parking garages also exist for those willing to pay. For commuters who work a fair distance away, Hamilton Heights offers easy access to major thoroughfares such as Interstate 87 and the Henry Hudson Parkway. Taxis generally stay farther south of Hamilton Heights, but residents can easily call car services such as Uber.

I would like to describe myself as a very straight forward person who lives a very quiet and peaceful life. Except for Fridays and Saturday when my life gets quite exciting as I take every opportunity New York City has to offer, Movie, theater, parks… Restaurants; yes we have a few!
I am in the Veteran care service business and spend most of my time on the phone or computer. Oh! Yes I am not a spring chicken but my body can still keep up with my mind.
