Jumel Terrace Books

Located at 426 West 160th St. within a few steps of the Morris Jumel Mansion Museum and the Highbridge Park is Jumel Terrace Books and B&B run by Kurt Thometz. This is a hidden gem or "Nugget in the Rubbish" as Mr. Thometz refers to it on his website. The store is open "by appointment or serendipity" and is the only bookstore specializing in local Washington Heights, Harlem, Harlem Heights, Sugar Hill history, both African and American.

We encourage our visitors to support this establishment and to visit his shop and find out more about our local history in Upper Manhattan.
