According to Street Easy, the median price for apartments in Washington Heights is $365,000, making it one of the least expensive neighborhoods in Manhattan. Compared to other neighborhoods, apartments in East Harlem go for a median of $467,000, and in the Upper West Side apartments are at a median of $967,000.
