From the northern part of the Upper West Side to Harlem to Inwood, Upper Manhattan boasts some of the city’s most impressive architecture: Turn-of-the-century apartment buildings (many with marble lobbies grand enough to house a presidential reception) and row houses dominate. The expansive pre-war co-ops located on Riverside Drive offer amazing views of the Hudson River and the condos offer flowing layouts, graciously proportioned rooms, and high ceilings that make uptown living so elegant.
