Even the northern end of Morningside Park is south of the southern end of Manhattanville, so the article's claim that the park is Manhattanville's eastern boundary is incorrect. Perhaps the boundary is St. Nicholas Park, which is directly east of the City College campus and is almost due north of Morningside Park.

Boundaries seem pretty off[edit]

The claim that Grant's Tomb is part of Manhattanville seems like a far stretch. Claiming anything at all south of 125th is a bit of a stretch. South of 125th is just about universally referred to as Morningside Heights. Shoreranger (talk) 17:41, 25 June 2008 (UTC)

Updated the northern/southern boundaries to 134th and 122nd (per the already included citation), not the hilariously wrong 125th/110th (which is morningside heights). Still needs more love though. 2620:10D:C0A3:1003:3E15:C2FF:FEC9:CAF6 (talk) 15:59, 29 July 2014 (UTC)

The boundaries are still way, way off. It says that the western boundary of the neighborhood is Morningside Park, but nearly every location cited in the article is WEST of Morningside Park. Doesn't make sense. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 165.1.250.236 (talk) 14:38, 27 October 2014 (UTC)

The east/west boundaries in the article are totally wrong. As per http://www.villagevoice.com/news/close-up-on-manhattanville-6403537 the boundaries are: "Real estate agents tend to say Manhattanville runs west of Broadway, stretching from the mid-120s south into West Morningside Heights. But if we apply the Ivy interpretation, Manhattanville extends from 120th or so north to 133rd, from Broadway— or even Amsterdam Avenue —west to the Hudson."

I live between 123th and 122nd (on Broadway) and I'll say that residents believe, that there is overlap between the two areas, with Manhattanville occupying much of on the northwestern borders of Morningside Heights. IE: Just as Morningside Heights is either part of the Upper West Side or Greater Harlem, much of Manhattanville is part of Morningside Heights. Brandorr (talk) 16:31, 17 July 2015 (UTC)
