  1. so now we are calling Morningside Heights Harlem…oh boy

    • Yes, Morningside Heights is a part of Harlem. It’s in West Harlem.

      “Harlem is located in Upper Manhattan—often referred to as Uptown by locals—and stretches from the East River west to the Hudson River between 155 Street, where it meets Washington Heights, to a ragged border along the south.

      Central Harlem—Manhattan Community Board No. 10—is bounded by Fifth Avenue on the east, Central Park on the south, Morningside Park, Saint Nicholas and Edgecombe Avenues on the west and the Harlem River on the north. A chain of three large linear parks; Morningside, St. Nicholas and Jackie Robinson are situated on steeply rising banks and form most of the district’s western boundary. On the east, Fifth Avenue and Marcus Garvey Park, also known as Mount Morris Park, separate this area from East Harlem.

      The West Harlem neighborhoods of Morningside Heights, Manhattanville and Hamilton Heights comprise Manhattan Community Board No. 9. The area is bounded by Cathedral Parkway (110th Street) on the South; 155th Street on the North; Manhattan/Morningside Ave/St. Nicholas/Bradhurst/Edgecome Avenues on the East; and the Hudson River on the west. Morningside Heights is located in the southern most section of West Harlem. Manhattanville begins at roughly 123rd Street and extends northward to 135 Street. The northern most section of West Harlem is Hamilton Heights.”

  2. No matter where it’s at…. let’s pay respects to an “actor of actors” a sensitive and humble individual, who enamoured millions, a deeply sensitive, and creative person and give him the righteous homecoming he deserves.. RIP….no matter who you are!

  3. Forget Game of Thrones. The Harlem empire is expanding. Watch out Washington Heights & Upper West Side, Harlem World is coming to claim you as theirs. The King of the North is coming!
