Manhattanville is located at the southwestern edge of West Harlem, just north of Columbia's main Morningside Heights campus, bounded by the Hudson River and St. Nicholas Avenue between 120th and 135th Streets. The area was one of old New York's most important 19th-century villages. For decades, the area between the Hudson River and Broadway was a center of trade and light manufacturing, a legacy that can be seen in the onetime auto industry facilities like the Studebaker Building on 131st Street and the Nash Building on 132nd Street.
