Our popular HB series that ranks the top 10 uptown micro-nabes is back for the best neighborhood countdown of 2015.  Harlem is a large part of Manhattan that changes block by block so we have put together a list of the best micro-nabes based on location, architecture, transportation, local amenities along with record closing prices when applicable. This is our own opinion based on reporting on the neighborhood for a few years and a new post will be made each day until the number one spot has been revealed.

No. 4: Lower Convent Avenue Historic District, West Harlem, 141st Street up to 145th Street on Convent Avenue including Hamilton Terrace.  Home prices made a big jump in 2014 on lower Convent Avenue over a year ago but 2015 had sales maxed out around $3.2 million so the neighborhood drops a bit to the Number 4 position.  With that said, some new records might just be announced for 2016 so the top three position could be established once more by this time next year.  The value of this beautiful historic district will be apparent to anyone visiting for the first time since the architecture is some of the most unique in Manhattan.  Over the past couple of years, great local spots like Il Caffe Latte or Sugar Hill Cafe along with those establishments closer to the Amsterdam and Broadway corridors makes this part of uptown feel more like a neighborhood to hang out in.  As mention previously, express trains at the 145th Street hub takes one to midtown in about 12 minutes so transportation is also surprisingly convenient for this part of Harlem.
