656 W 171ST ST 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 656 W 171st St

Three and a half blocks from the AC and 1 trains, and between Columbia Medical and the J Hood Wright Park, this location will allow you to enjoy the tranquility of uptown living without compromising accessibility or proximity to commerce. Although it requires a commute to reach this far-uptown escape, the neighborhood's community feel and plainspoken demeanor make up for the distance. The building amenities include an on-site super, magnetic lock lobby doors, a marbled lobby, and rentable storage lockers. Justin DiGiulio (Jan 2014)
