Mount Morris Park Historic district in Harlem expands

The Mount Morris Historic district has now expanded to include practically all of the buildings from Adam Clayton Powell boulevard to Lenox avenue from 118th street to 123rd street. The expansion includes many beautiful brownstone homes as well as some apartment buildings. Homes that fall within a historic district need the LPC approval to do work to their exteriors. Over the last few years, historic districts are attempting to expand to preserve the character of neighborhoods.

Typical brownstones within the Mount Morris Historic district ask over $3mm and it’s only a matter of time before one sells for over $4 million.

What do you think of the expansion?
