The Morningside Heights neighborhood is home to the world’s leading academic and religious institutions who, together, help create a truly unique community in which to live, learn, and grow. Morningside Heights is located within greater Harlem, expanding from Cathedral Parkway and W. 125th St, with Riverside Park and Morningside Park flanking its western and eastern borders. Residents belong to both Manhattan Community Board 9 and New York City Council District 9.
