500 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.
