Barnard College, founded in 1889, is one of the four undergraduate divisions of Columbia University. ...


Use of the name "Morningside Heights" for the neighborhood arose in the late 19th century as a replacement for Bloomingdale Village. This latter name had become associated with the Bloomingdale Asylum which once occupied the present location of the main campus of Columbia University, and as the neighborhood became a more residential location, people desired to shed that association. Following Columbia's move to the neighborhood from Midtown in the 1890s, residential and institutional development accelerated. Columbia University is a private research university in the United States. ...

Many of the apartment buildings and rowhouses were built for New York's prosperous middle class, but by the mid-20th century the increasing prevalence of Single Room Occupancy (S.R.O.) hotels led to attendant socioeconomic problems and a decline in the neighbourhood.

The expression single room occupancy or, more commonly SRO, refers to a building that houses people in single rooms. ...

The social problems in the area prompted Columbia to purchase much of the neighborhood's real estate, leading to accusations of forced eviction and gentrification. This process reached its apotheosis in 1968, when protests erupted in both the neighborhood and on Columbia's campus over the university's proposal to build a gym in Morningside Park. Allegations were hurled that the park's proposed separate entrance for Harlem residents on the lower level of the park was segregated, and that public park space was being annexed by a wealthy private institution. The university was eventually forced to abandon the plan, though it has still expanded its presence in the neighborhood markedly over the last few decades, and gentrification has proceeded apace. Recently, the university has been seeking to expand significantly in nearby Manhattanville. This article or section is not written in the formal tone expected of an encyclopedia article. ...

Many may now consider Morningside Heights merely an extension of the Upper West Side, though many residents do not admit to such a lack of distinction. In the last decade, some businesses in the area have started using the name SoHa (or "South of Harlem") to refer to the neighborhood. Examples of this include Max's SoHa restaurant and the former SoHa nightclub.

The real Tom's Restaurant also appeared in Seinfeld.

Arguably the most famous restaurant in Morningside Heights (and one of the most famous diners in the world) is Tom's Restaurant on Broadway at W. 112th St. After being featured in the song "Tom's Diner" by Suzanne Vega (an alumna of Barnard College), it became known as the daily hangout of the characters of the television sitcom Seinfeld. (Exterior shots of Tom's were used on Seinfeld; the interior of the restaurant looks very little like the fictional "Monk's Cafe," as the scenes in Monk's were filmed on a set in California.) Tom's is now part of the regular Seinfeld New York Tour conducted by Kenny Kramer. The interior shots most resemble the Broadway diner, found between 101st and 102nd street.

Comedian George Carlin grew up on 121st Street. In the comedy piece "White Harlem", which appears on his Occupation: Foole album, he said that younger residents would refer to the neighborhood as "White Harlem". This is due to the fact that "White Harlem" would likely be considered an intimidating locale by outsiders and give inhabitants thereof greater respect from outsiders, whereas conversely a young person from "Morningside Heights" would have a much great probability of being abused simply by virtue of the fact that they live in a locale called "Morningside Heights".

Morningside Gardens residents

Several famous neighborhood residents have lived in Morningside Gardens, an experimental co-op project built in 1957 between 123rd Street and LaSalle Streets, and Broadway and Amsterdam Avenues. Morningside Gardens was the result of Robert Moses' Morningside-Manhattanville urban renewal plan, and was successful in the sense that it combined the middle income Gardens with the NYCHA General Grant Houses to the East and North of it, and maintained a commercial strip along Amsterdam Avenue. The Gardens prided itself on being an integrated community and for most of its existence, those selling their apartments were not allowed to take any significant profit until 2006, when the co-op voted to allow residents to sell their co-ops for 80% of market value, or 3x what the previous maximum sale price was, per apartment. Many professional African-Americans moved to Morningside Gardens to maintain roots with the black community of Harlem and to enjoy the benefits of a safe and integrated community. Among those were Thurgood Marshall, first black justice named to the Supreme Court. Singer/songwriter Fiona Apple and science fiction writer Samuel Delany also lived in the complex as youths.
