575 Riverside Drive is a Doorman & elevator coop building just below 135th St close to Columbia University. There is a bike room, a laundry, a live in super and pied a terre' s are allowed. Parking is also available! There are 3 -2 bedrooms for sale ranging from $550,000 to $730,000 with reasonable maintenance. There is also a two bedroom for rent for under $3000. Whether this is a good area to live is subjective and depends on your requirements, as real estate professionals we are not allowed to offer an opinion on such matters, anyway. As others have said the best plan is to visit the area and form your own opinion of if it suits your needs. If you are qualified to buy or rent I would be glad to show you an apartment for sale in the building or the one for rent.
These are not my listings but as a buyer's broker I can show and arrange for you to buy any listed property in Manhattan at no extra cost or charge and probably save you money to boot.
Please give me a call if I can assist you further!

This luxury condominium contains â€œfirst class amenities,â€ and currently has 24 apartments for sale and 16 available for rent, ranging from studios to two bedroom units.
I'll echo what everyone's said re: agents not being permitted to comment on safety. It is indeed completely subjective, beyond what the precinct reports will tell you.
That said, I looked up the two apartments listed for sale in that building right now. If it were my money being spent (and I always like to operate as if it's my money when advising customers), I would take a HARD look at that building. The renovations look spectacular, the views from the high-floor unit are incredible, and the maintenance is manageable.
Columbia University continues to march uptown from the south end of the neighborhood. On the north end, you are anchored by City College. My personal opinion is that if I were in the market for a beautiful 2-br apartment on the island of Manhattan, I wouldn't feel that my search was complete until I went and checked out these places in person.
And to whomever is turning these homes over--well, if you're listening, WELL DONE. As someone who searches and sees a lot of Harlem/Morningside/RSD apartments, this is a beautiful example of how to do it.
If you want to visit this building, please get in touch...I'm curious beyond belief and very excited by what I see in the photos.

Everybody has their own notion of what a "good area" is. It depends upon what is important to you. Is it the schools? The cultural institutions? Parks? Subway access? Variety or restaurants? Crime stats? Decide what is most important to you in your own definition of "good area." Then visit the neighborhood and see how you feel there. I would suggest going in the day and going at night as well.
