From West 135th to West 155th Streets between Riverside Drive and St. Nicolas and Edgecombe Avenues, Hamilton Heights was named for the former home of Alexander Hamilton and is a small neighborhood in Harlem. It has several historic districts including Hamilton Terrace (east of Convent Avenue and north of West 141st Street) because of its beautiful townhouses and Strivers' Row (West 139th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues) mostly because of its Stanford White brownstones.
