at 110th Street, 125th Street or 155th Street are some common usages.[citation needed] Upper Manhattan

and parts of the Upper West Side

(Morningside Heights and Manhattan

and other elevated railroads brought people to the previously rustic Upper Manhattan. Until the late 20th century it was less influenced by the gentrification that had taken place in other parts of New York over the previous 30 years. Like other residential areas, Upper Manhattan
is not a major center of tourism in New York City, although some tourist attractions, such as Grant's Tomb, most of Riverside Park, the Apollo Theater, Fort Tryon Park and The Cloisters, Sylvia's Restaurant, the Hamilton Grange, the Morris–Jumel Mansion, Minton's Playhouse, Riverbank State Park, Sakura Park, Sugar Hill, Riverside Church, the National Jazz Museum in Harlem
and the Dyckman House
