“The Taystee Lab Building is transformative. It will completely revitalize the growing Manhattanville Factory District bridging Columbia University and City College with the world-famous 125th Street Arts and Culture Corridor.”

Welcome to the neighborhood!

Situated on New York’s beautiful Hudson River, West Harlem is a neighborhood full of energy, culture and charm. It’s a short walk or bike ride on the Hudson River Greenway to the Taystee Lab Building. In a few blocks, you can stroll through Riverside Park, visit world-class educational institutions or visit the legendary Apollo Theater.

Connectivity/ Transportation

Just to the east is the 125th Street A, B, C and D subway lines. The A and D express trains are one stop to Midtown. Just west is the Broadway #1 subway line, serving the entire west side of Manhattan. The Taystee Lab Building is also easy to reach by bus, as many major routes converge at 125th Street and two-way Amsterdam Avenue. The West Side Highway and Hudson River Greenway bike path are two avenues just to the west. Bike commuters will enjoy the convenience of an indoor bike storage room.

Manhattanville Factory District

From the mid-19th to early-20th century, the historic village of Manhattanville was an energetic industrial neighborhood, bursting with breweries and factories. One hundred years later, the Manhattanville Factory District is once again becoming one of the most exciting places in New York.

The District delivers on a distinct national and city-wide need for life science and tech space while creating a vibrant business district connected to the neighborhood’s industrial history.
