Named after the last fort of its kind, which was built in 1776 at the intersection of Audubon Avenue and 192nd Street, Fort George is an NYC neighborhood rich in history and cultural significance. This enclave of Washington Heights is filled with lovely brick buildings built in the 1920s and 1930s as well as new luxury buildings that are one the rise. Families looking for quiet streets with a suburban feel while still staying in Manhattan will find themselves at home in this neighborhood.
Walking along the streets, it’s common to see an eclectic mix of restaurants and cafes including upscale coffee shops, Dominican restaurants, and soon there will be North End, a seven-kiosk food hall similar to the types you’ll find in the heart of Manhattan. It’s safe to say that change is coming swiftly to this area, and its future is looking bright.
