☞ READ: Catching Up with 88 Morningside

We were going to follow up on new condo development 88 Morningside but Curbed recently posted on the sales and even had some interior photos: LINK.  The 73-unit building hasn't finished up yet on the upper floors but 13 contracts are already out.  One of the model apartments shown in the article (last photo) has a surprising view of the boarded up building next door on the north side of 122nd Street but it would seem buyers are attracted to the direct west facing view of Morningside Park along Morningside Avenue.  Columbia's main campus is a less than 10 minute walk in the same direction and express subway access is 3 blocks north.

The quiet, brownstone-lined side streets in this part of Harlem could easily be considered landmarks but like the corner building, some are in better condition than others. Price ranges are form $300K-$900K which is kind of in the affordable category for Manhattan.  For more on what's going on with that building next door, check out our previous post: LINK

  1. The view of the boarded up building sure would be depressing. Hopefully someday soon that eyesore will be renovated.
