There are so many great places to eat in my neighborhood that I’ve decided to start a little series about them, the Manhattan Valley Neighborhood Eats. For those who don’t know, Manhattan Valley is a neighborhood on the Upper West Side of Manhattan in New York City, bounded by West 110th Street to the north, Central Park West to the east, West 96th Street to the south, and Broadway to the west. It was formerly known as the Bloomingdale District, and is still occasionally so called. (according to this Wiki article on the neighborhood)
My neighborhood is awesome because there’s so many food and drink choices due to all the different types of communities that live here. Being the an extension of the Upper West Side, there are brunch menus galore. Being near Columbia University, there are quite a few pub scenes that are fun and definitely worth going to. And finally, being a neighborhood that is still in the process of gentrification, there are still a lot of cheap, quality eats. Yum.
