Bordering Harlem to the South along 155th Street, Inwood to the North along Dyckman Street, the Hudson River to the West, and Harlem River to the East, Washington Heights is a charming gem located in Upper Manhattan. The hilly area is abundant with parkland and offers stunning views of the Hudson River and the Palisades. Following in lieu of Harlem, the neighborhood is the next uptown destination, with spacious apartments, affordable rents, and a high prospect for future growth.
Nearby, to the north of Washington Heights, Fort Tyron Park houses one of New York’s biggest attractions,The Cloisters, a museum specializing in European medieval architecture, sculpture, and decorative arts. The neighborhood is also home to American Academy of Arts and Letters and the Columbia Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Hospital. Despite its relatively troubled past, the neighborhood was the third safest neighborhood in Manhattan, after the Upper West Side and the Upper East Side, according to NYPD crime statistics. The area is well-served by the subway, with residents having access to the A, C, and 1 trains. Washington Heights’ affordability, greenery, safety, and diversity establishes the neighborhood as an attractive place to live and as a prime investment opportunity.
