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 643 W 171st St

Seeing that you can get much better space in a newer building with better amenities for a whole lot less money and still be 15 minutes from midtown, the secret is becoming the standard. Only steps away from the A/C/1 trains, supermarkets, shops, parks, restaurants and Columbia Presbyterian Hospital. Very safe neighborhood with lots of families, students and young professionals.
