So I live in Morningside Heights. I kind of think it’s the best neighborhood in Manhattan, but you don’t have to agree.
Anyway, MH is right between the Upper West Side and Harlem. Slowly but surely, the UWS has been creeping up higher and higher. The frontier, now, is around 125th street.
Two block south of 125th Street & Broadway is China de Puebla, a delicious new Mexican-Asian fusion restaurant. It represents the changes in these parts. It’s gourmet, yet still affordable. It’s posh, yet unpretentious. I highly recommend after your stroll through my lovely neighborhood.
