Description

The landmarked and historic 409 Edgecombe Avenue is one of the most prestigious buildings in Sugar Hill. Overlooking Jackie Robinson Park, the building was once home to some of Harlem's most elite African American luminaries in the fields of law, civil rights, academia, arts and entertainment, including Justice Thurgood Marshall,  W.E.B. Dubois, Aaron Douglas, Roy Wilkins, and Elizabeth Catlett.

This 13-story building has a part-time overnight lobby attendant, resident superintendent, service elevator, and common laundry room. There are a new intercom system and a gym in the works. The building is pet-friendly with a 30-pound weight limit for dogs.

The building is convenient to the C train (2 blocks away at 155th Street), the A, B, C, D express stop entrance between 147th - 148th Streets (along with a large Foodtown market), and the #1 at 157th Street and Broadway. Jackie Robinson Park and Highbridge Parks are at your doorstep along with the Dance Theatre of Harlem, Sugar Hill Museum, Audubon Mural Project and the Morris Jumel Mansion, a historic site that served as General Washington's headquarters during the fall of 1776, and where Lin-Manuel Miranda spent time writing the musical "Hamilton". Alexander Hamilton's home, The Grange, lies just to the South at 141st Street.
