As a walk down the street shows, Upper Manhattan is rich in architectural history. As a walk down the street shows, Upper Manhattan is rich in architectural history.
The townhouses and brownstones that came to distinguish Upper Manhattan were built at the turn of the century, but they show no signs of fading into obsolescence. On the contrary, these historic homes are more popular than ever. Following in the footsteps of such luminaries as Bob Dylan, Harry Houdini, and Maya Angelou, power couple Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka recently renovated a Harlem townhouse that attracted headlines and set new standards.

More recently, Harlem effectively serves as both setting and another character in the much-anticipated film adaptation of James Baldwin's If Beale Street Could Talk. Off-screen, Corcoran broker David Daniels set a new record with the sale of an elegantly renovated townhouse at 109 West 132nd Street for $3 million. The following Upper Manhattan townhouses offer a rare opportunity to own a piece of New York history.
