About Mott Haven Neighborhood

Neighborhood Map image

Perhaps no other neighborhood in the Bronx has seen as much change as Mott Haven. Right across the Harlem river from Manhattan, being the first stop in from the city, and having plenty low-cost real estate up for grabs made this a perfect choice for developers looking for the new "it" spot. Mott Haven is one of the few areas of the Bronx that have historic attached townhouses that are synonymous with the classic New York City townhouses, predominantly found in Manhattan and Brooklyn. Gentrification has meant that many new luxury developments have gone up, as well as trendier eateries and businesses. Of course, this means that real estate prices have gone up right with the new art galleries and coffee shops. The artists' vibe is apparent in the South Bronx, with graffiti art and galleries that have popped up in the area.
