Hamilton Heights | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Primarily a residential neighborhood, Hamilton Heights has a mix of brownstones, walk-ups and older apartment buildings, together with more luxurious apartment and condo buildings situated along Riverside Drive. Known for being a working class neighborhood in the past, now there are many artists, teachers and actors making their homes in Hamilton Heights.  

Hamilton Heights has a diverse population that prides itself on being a tight-knit community, one where neighbors know and respect one another, work together on issues that confront the community, support each other in difficult times, and spend time together socializing at block and seasonal parties.

Although there are many types of public transportation available, the area subway stops may require a bit of a walk, so you will need to plan for this time in your commute.

Hamilton Heights has a definite family-oriented vibe, and there are many playgrounds and activities for children. Additionally, you can find child daycare at reasonable prices. Riverbank State Park has many activities and recreational opportunities geared toward children. 

Although there are plentiful places to shop for groceries, everything from the bigger national chains to the neighborhood bodegas and delis, they are starting to show the impact of gentrification in the higher prices they are charging, especially for organic products.
