Alexander's Alley, located on 140th Street and Alexander Avenue in the Bronx, is named for a family of Mott Haven landowners and developers, Robert, Ellen, and their son Edwin Alexander. Mott built a nearby canal and successfully advocated the extension of the Harlem River Railroad (later known as Metro-North's Harlem Line) through Mott Haven.
