Neighborhood Guide to Harlem and Washington Heights 

From famous graves to restaurant faves, New York City landmarks to modern-day activist murals, spend a day taking in the sights and sounds — and hidden gems — of the vibrant neighborhood that American diplomat Henry Kissinger, Yankees star Alex Rodriguez, and Pulitzer Prize-winner Lin-Manuel Miranda have all called home. 

Trinity Church’s uptown cemetery is a serene urban green space for locals and tourists alike — a place to find sanctuary amid the bustle of the city. Located in Upper Manhattan on the border of Hamilton Heights and Washington Heights, the cemetery is the center of the city’s Heritage Rose District, abloom in spring and summer with centuries-old varieties. Many notable New Yorkers are interred on the historic grounds (not to be confused with the downtown churchyards of Trinity Church and St. Paul’s Chapel), including John James Audubon, John Jacob Astor, Eliza Jumel, and Ralph Ellison, to name a few. 

Come for a quiet moment of reflection— stay for the day. Here are a few of our favorite things to do, see, and eat in the neighborhood.
