Today, New York's most iconic neighborhood has once again
taken flight with an infusion of
new energy.

Starwood Hotels and Resorts recently opened an Aloft Hotel on 124th & Frederick Douglass Blvd. Whole Foods is coming to 125th and Lenox in 2014. Celebrity chefs like Marcus Samuelson are serving up hot new flavors in the bistros, bakeries and supper clubs. Business is booming, as a growing number of boutiques are setting up shop to cater to a style-conscious clientele. Art galleries are popping up and organizations such as Art in Flux are bringing culture and creativity to the community. When it's time to relax and unwind there's plenty of green space with the wide open meadows of Central Park to the south and the rugged beauty of Morningside Park to the west.

With parks, art, shopping and entertainment all within easy reach, this legendary community is now more vibrant than ever.
