This Spring, Untapped New York is collaborating with Columbia GSAPP to create a mini-series of podcasts designed to welcome incoming students to the GSAPP family. Throughout the series, we explore architectural and historic highlights of Columbia University’s neighborhood and surrounding New York City communities.
In this second installment, Michelle Young and Justin Rivers of Untapped New York explore neighborhoods in Upper Manhattan where many of GSAPP’s students choose to live. They head from Morningside Heights to Harlem, Hamilton Heights, Washington Heights, and Inwood. Along the way, they point out culinary and cultural highlights of each neighborhood, including NYC’s largest slice at Koronet Pizza in Morningside Heights, Harlem’s Apollo Theater, the Audubon Mural Project in Hamilton Heights, and the many parks and views of Washington Heights. We also hear from Columbia affiliated residents of Harlem and Washington Heights who tell us about why they love their neighborhoods.
