Washington Heights

Quiet On the rise Near park

Extending from 155th Street to Dyckman Street, Washington Heights is home to some of the most interesting geographic features in Manhattan.

The neighborhood’s lofty name is derived from the fact that—at 256 feet above sea level—it is situated at the highest point in Manhattan. Because of its steep inclines, numerous "step" streets (one of which has 130 stairs) connect one street to the next.

The population of Washington Heights is over 150,000.

Descriptions of 515 Edgecombe Ave

The wide open living and dining areas have recessed lighting and receive wonderful light perched high upon Edgecombe Avenue overlooking the trees of Highbridge Park and the site of the famed Polo Grounds. The walk-in laundry/storage room features a Bosch W/D, utility sink and built-in shelving along with plenty of space for extra storage. Transportation is fantastic with the C train down the block, a short walk to the 1 train and the M2 bus at the building's doorstep.
