The day I was born in the early 1950s, they were living in Inwood and later moved to the outer boroughs and then to Long Island.



NOTE: Located in Inwood, you will find 2 or 3 blocks worth of single-family detached standlone homes wih the traditional look of a standalone home (i.e, detached standalone homes with a triangular-shaped roof, a front yard, side yards, and a back yard . . . rather than being brownstones or townhouses). It is the only place in Manhattan proper (other than Gracie Mansion, the NYC Mayor's official residence) where you can find such home types.


Below is from a posting I submitted on 12/15/2015 to another C-D.com NYC thread titled "Memories of Inwood (1940's) about this subject:

Do you know that, in Inwood (Manhattan), you can find the ONLY single-family detached homes in all of Manhattan that have the traditional look an layout of traditional single-family detached homes rather than being brownstones or townhouses (i.e., having a triangular- or pyramid-shape type of roof, having a front yard, side yards, and back yard, et al). There is a block or two blocks in Inwood that all or nearly all consists of these traditional-type single-family detached homesj. Certainly, one can find such homes in ALL the surrounding boroughs of New York City outside Manhattan (as well as all the areas outside New York City proper, of course) but to find such homes as these in Manhattan at all is an extreme aberration from the norm and a rarity. Though quite small homes, the fact that such homes even exist at all anywhere in Manhattan is very very standout-ish. They must be worth quite a bit of money (probably over a million each . . . just because they are in Manhattan). What is the old saying?: " Location, location, location!"

I think the referenced houses are in the Park Terrace West & 217th St. vicinity, as well as on Payson Ave., in the Inwood neighborhood of Manhattan. Here are some of the referenced traditional-type single-family detached houses in Inwood (flick through the selection of pictures on Flickr.com by clicking in the arrows):

Like this semi-attached home on W 217 Street with Private Driveway & Garage(!) which Zillow values at $1.59M -

I think it's worth the $$$ just for the garage!

The people who live in that neighborhood are not very happy about it all. 311 noise complaints have gone up exponentially.

The density of Manhattan can only allow for so much quiet. That location is commercial. The people who lease it want to make money. If the residential tenants want quiet, they should be the ones to leave. Not fair to handicap the commercial tenant like that.

Actually it's reopened under new management, but their season ends this week (end of Sept). They have to apply for a liquor license, as it was revoked for the address under the previous ownership. New owners vow to keep it a family-friendly place, rather than the kind of place it had been --- I guess it had attracted unsavory types and the like, and had made a lot of bad press and loss of goodwill in the area. I've never been in the establishment, but the spot is ideal...such a scenic spot for Manhattan. Before the GW Bridge, the ferries to NJ docked there.
(info about the restaurant above, was in a recent issue of The Manhattan Times, the weekly paper for upper Manhattan -- long published by Luis Miranda, the dad of the now uber-famous composer/writer of Hamilton and In the Heights).

I believe they’re trying to get houses on Park Terrace designated as landmark status

I understand that, but if noise is not an issue, why is there such thing as dialing 311 for noise complaints and why are these documented?
