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.

15 minutes from midtown, this is a place where families have BBQs in the park, where neighbors laugh on sunny stoops while the ice cream trucks roll by, where cyclists and joggers take advantage of river paths and foodies feast at new restaurants which pop up every year. Aaron Kinney (Sep 2014)
Amenities are among the best to be found in Manhattan, including an attentive, responsive staff, a fitness center and children's playroom, terraced gardens, and landscaped rooftop sun deck for watching the city below, or contemplating the stars above.
