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 647 W 172nd St

In a quiet Inwood/Washington Heights building and has on-site superintendent, magnetic lock lobby doors, basement laundry room, rental storage lockers, heat and hot water included, marbled lobby. The express train three blocks away offers a quick commute to virtually anywhere in Manhattan, while the George Washington Bridge and bus terminal are right up the street. Located on a quiet residential street the building offers a neighborhood feel, just a block away from vibrant Broadway and all its conveniences. Nicola DeMarco (May 2014)
This building has a great architectural style and the interior common areas and units are well-kept, with excellent access to commercial offerings, parkland, and public transportation. Julian Suazo (May 2014)
The area is nothing less than eye opening with parks in the area, fancy restaurants, the presbyterian hospital, the columbia medical school, local/express trains, ect. With a beautiful renovation done in the building you will find its inside renovations are just as beautiful as the apartments renovations. There are also many trains and buses for those who need to commute for work and other personal reasons. Stephen Rosario (Jan 2014)
