Welcome to West Harlem – an ideal neighborhood for people who want to be close to the serenity of Central Park, while enjoying the conveniences of city life – and all the hustle and bustle of wide commercial boulevards filled with soul food, and jazz music. A hub for many college students attending Columbia University and The City College of New York. Charming historic buildings and a diverse array of restaurants give this neighborhood a soulful flair. A local hotspot is the neighborhood’s Piers Waterfront Park with dreamy views of the Hudson River.
West Harlem is a neighborhood where you can find less expensive housing compared to the Upper West Side – with an equally outstanding quality of life. For this reason, West Harlem has a higher rate of college-educated residents than any other part of the city. This made it the perfect neighborhood for the expansion of Columbia University, with a new campus and a vast parkland designed by the famous Italian architect, Renzo Piano. Locals spend their weekend down at The Piers Park, which has a fishing pier, multiple lawns, as well as a boat dock. Public favorites include lazing on the grass basking in the exceptional views of the Hudson River.
We want to make sure anyone can get a taste of this growing culture and neighborhood, so we’ve renovated some wonderful rooms and listed them at an extremely reasonable renting price. As always when you rent with June Homes, the homes and rooms come with furniture and cookware, so no moving truck required!
