☞ SEE: Inside the St. Nicholas Townhouses

We covered the historic St. Nicholas Avenue blocks at 147th Street in the past but always wondered what they looked like inside. This weekends NY Times has a slide show on a family renting out one of them for $3,500 a month and raising their three kids in Sugar Hills. With smaller apartments going for much more on the Upper West Side and a ill father's wish for the family not to move to Brooklyn, Harlem was the natural choice. See more in the NY Times: LINK. The closest subways to this block are the A,B,C,D trains at 145th Street. Interior photos courtesy of Chester Higgins Jr. House photo by Ulysses.

  1. This family laments the loss of 'ethnic' neighborhood choices in the Upper West Side. Why not try the true-blue 'ethnic' neighborhood restaurants on Amsterdam, a couple avenues over? Or the 'ethnic' Senegalese restaurants in South Harlem? Perhaps they're too 'local' for this couple and their kids. We must be aware of, and support, our neighborhood restaurants!
