Manhattanville

Walking around New York City  offers so much architectural history. I stumbled upon this little neighborhood or what’s left of it. Most of it has been bought out by Columbia University. If you walk around here you can get a sense that Manhattanville was a city separate from the rest of Manhattan. This bridge spans Mother David’s Valley the scene of The Battle of Harlem Heights in the War of 1812 where George Washington had been involved.  The area feels like a scene from another time earlier in the 20th century. For the most part there aren’t many people who walk around here. Most people stop around Broadway unless you’re walking down to the Fairway Market, Dinosaur Barbecue or the Hudson river waterfront. There is an old cove here that was the entry point to this area and to the rest of Harlem.
