Neighborhood Description

Named for a Revolutionary War era fortification, Fort George is truly an epitome of American independence.

In 1776, the American army fought off the Red Coats from Fort George after the pivotal battle of Brooklyn, allowing safe passage for General Washington and his troops to escape to New Jersey and Westchester. It is actually one of five forts built by the Americans with the name Fort George.

Fort George is one of the sub neighborhoods of Washington Heights, running from W155th Street to W181s street, and is actually the highest point in Manhattan. The undeniable highlight of Fort George is Fort Tryon Park, which boasts stunning panoramic views of the Hudson River. During the summer enjoy rows of vibrant manicured gardens and cherry blossoms leading through the park to the Cloisters, the uptown outpost of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Dedicated to the art and architecture of medieval Europe, the Cloisters hosts rotating exhibits and its structure--which appears as an old castle--was actually constructed with the stone from old European churches and monasteries. In addition to the artwork and fascinating exhibits, The Cloisters also has an impeccably kept medicinal and medieval herb garden, located within a vine-covered courtyard that has absolutely breathtaking views of the water.

The Highbridge Park playground, also located in Fort Tryon, calls upon the park’s rich history as an entertainment venue as well as port of war. The park was actually a massive amusement complex from the late 1800s until 1914. Complete with two Ferris wheels, three rollercoasters, nine saloons, a pony track, several hotels, a casino, five shooting galleries, a tunnel boat ride and two music halls. The park was a coveted destination for New Yorkers looking for a day’s adventure and entertainment without having to leave the burrough. As it became more and more popular, however, residents of the area complained as crime rose and drunken chicanery escalated. The steady increase of negative public sentiment towards “Palisades Park” finally culminated in three arson attempts, the third of which razed the entire complex to the ground, and created the opportunity for the park that exists there today.

Fort George--and Inwood, generally speaking--used to be the wettest spot in town. At one point, more than 200 bars--mostly pubs--littered the neighborhood, filling up Dyckman Street with festivities (and drunkards).
