Washington Heights Real Estate

Washington Heights is the Manhattan neighborhood just north of Harlem from 155th Street to Inwood up to Dyckman Street.

The area is known for its hills and the cliffs—a real change of scenery for Manhattanites. The neighborhood's best-known cultural asset is The Cloisters—located in Fort Tryon Park—where the Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibits its collection of Medieval art among serene walkways, dramatic Medieval architecture and leafy paths. You'll find plenty of parks here, including Bennett Park, Fort Tyron Park, Fort Washington Park and Riverfront Park. Artists from Washington Heights and the surrounding communities participate in the annual Uptown Arts Stroll each summer, and there are several branches of the New York Public Library.

Within Washington Heights is the community known as Hudson Heights, a residential neighborhood made up of mostly pre-war buildings in the Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Neo-Classical, Tudor and Gothic styles that has become a sweet spot for buyers who want considerably more space for their money. The New Balance Track and Field Center in the Fort Washington Avenue Armory maintains an Olympic-grade track, and mountain bike races take place in Highbridge Park in the spring and summer.

Washington Heights is a vibrant, neighborly community with plenty of food finds, and a number of upscale wine and food shops and businesses. Washington Heights is connected to New Jersey via the George Washington Bridge and the neighborhood is served by the C and the A subways, with Port Authority only 5 stops away via express.
