Encyclopedia > Marble Hill, Manhattan

Marble Hill is the northernmost section of the borough of Manhattan in New York, New York. It is separated from the rest of Manhattan by the Harlem River Ship Canal, which was dug in 1895 to connect two portions of the Harlem River bypassing a very circuitous portion and leaving Marble Hill as an island. In 1914, the old river was filled in, physically connecting Marble Hill to the borough of The Bronx and the North American mainland. When a judge found it to be legally still a part of the borough of Manhattan (and the County of New York) in 1939, the Bronx Borough President declared it 'the Bronx Sudetenland', referencing Hitler's 1938 annexation of a region of Czechoslovakia.
