285 FT WASHINGTON AVE in Washington Heights

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 285 Ft Washington Ave

Amazing landmark neighborhood near Jay Wright Park, great location just steps to the A train, fast commute to midtown and lower Manhattan, minutes to Columbia University Medical Center and NY Presbyterian Hospital. Prewar walk-up building, heat and hot water included, pets okay upon approval. Steven Hanna (Jul 2014)
I have a plethora of beautifully renovated units throughout all of Manhattan close to all forms of public transportation, walking distance to local supermarkets, restaurants, lounges, and parks. Washington Ave just steps from the A train. Kenneth Francis (Jan 2014)
