4. Sylvan Terrace
Located in Washington Heights just next to the famed Morris-Jumel Mansion, Sylvan Terrace is a small street lined with townhouses that seem to have changed little in appearance since their construction in the 19th century. They were all built at the same time by architect Gilbert Robinson Jr. in 1882and were originally home to middle class residents. A common misconception is that they were built for servants for the mansion, but that is false. You may also recognize Sylvan Terrace for its appearance in the first season of Boardwalk Empire, used as the exterior of the apartment where Nucky Thompson moves Mrs. Schroeder (later Mrs. Thompson).
