Mount Morris Park
The historic Harlem neighborhood of Mount Morris Park encompasses a designated Historic District approximately between West 120th and 125th Streets, directly to the west and south of its namesake park, also known as Marcus Garvey Park, one of Manhattan’s oldest public spaces. Mount Morris Park properties include grand 19th-century townhouses distinguished by opulent architectural designs with stately brownstone and limestone facades, many well preserved with fine interior paneling and ornate fireplaces. Mount Morris Park is experiencing a renaissance as a prime residential real estate area and is undergoing extensive economical revival. The park itself offers a beautifully treed setting highlighted by an alle of linden trees and includes a recreation center, an amphitheater hosting outdoor summer performances and an historic fire watchtower. Mount Morris Park is situated just below the main shopping area of Harlem and is served by convenient train service to other areas of Manhattan.
