North of Harlem are these quiet multiethnic residential districts whose main attraction is the Cloisters , the Metropolitan Museum of Arts Uptown "castle," beautifully nestled in a bucolic setting with marvelous views and housing a magnificent medieval art collection.

Historic home lovers may want to seek out the Jumel Terrace Historic District, west of St. Nicholas Avenue between 160th and 162nd streets, which is centered on the Morris-Jumel Mansion, and the Dutch Colonial Dyckman Farmhouse Museum.
