Mott Haven

Mott Haven

This Bronx neighborhood is known for its small historic districts which give a glimpse into the borough's nineteenth century history. The main Mott Haven Historic District can be found on Alexander Avenue, mostly between East 138th & East 141st Streets. These beautiful blocks consist of four and five story rowhouses of Gothic, Queen Anne, and Romanesque architecture. This historic district of red-bricked townhouses is only part of the story. Another historic district is the Mott Haven East Historic District, which is located on East 139th & East 140th Streets, between Brook & Willis Avenues. These two blocks are quite distinct, with the familiar red-bricked rowhouses, as well as homes with stone facades and front gardens. Residents of Mott Haven apartments have access to plenty of public transportation. The number 6 train can be caught at the Brook Avenue Station, as well as the 3 Av - 138th Street Station, both located along East 138th Street. For commuters living closer to the west side and the Harlem River have the option of hopping on the numbers 4 & 5 trains at the 138th Street - Grand Concourse Station. If you work in Midtown East, it is worth noting that Mott Haven is only three stops from 59th Street & FIfth Avenue on these express trains. Residents living in North New York apartments have the option of catching both the numbers 2 & 5 trains at two separate stations near the north end of town.
