This is one of the buildings in the Manhattanville Houses complex, built in 1961, originally for middle-income people. I couldn't find out who lives there now, not even from the New York City Housing Authority. This is what they had to say:

SITE STATISTICS AND DESCRIPTION:Manhattanville Houses in Manhattan has six, 20-story buildings with 1,272 apartments housing an estimated 2,756 residents. Completed June 30, 1961, the 12.36-acre complex is bordered by Broadway, Amsterdam Avenue, West 129th and West 133rd Streets.

And now, even though it's only 10:00, I'm falling asleep in front of my computer. I'm going to put off filling you in on Manhattanville, the neighborhood, but it WILL be done sometime on this walk.


See map.
