Manhattan Valley is a small area of the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City. Running from 100th Street to 110th Street, it is a markedly lower-class section of the otherwise well-to-do Upper West Side, sharing similar demographics with the adjacent neighborhood of Harlem. Formerly known as the Bloomingdale District, the area went into decline in the 1950s and 1960s and unlike the rest of the Upper West Side, has been slow to gentrify.

ManhattanValley is a neighborhood on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City, bounded by West 110th Street to the north, Central Park West to the east, West 96th Street or 100th Street to the south, and Broadway to the west.
ManhattanValley occupies a natural depression running east-west across Manhattan, declining rapidly from high rocky bluffs at the western border of modern Central Park, and following west the valley created by what was once a minor stream draining from roughly the area of the Harlem Meer into the Hudson River.
ManhattanValley has gentrified significantly since the 1980s, along with the rest of the Upper West Side and Harlem, under steady encroachment north from the "traditional" Upper West Side and south from Morningside Heights.
