George Washington Bridge
Washington Heights is Manhattan's highest natural point (265 feet, in Bennett Park)
Washington Heights, which runs from 155th Street to Dyckman Street from river to river, is a bustling urban area with a busy commercial center.
Washington Heights is known for it's five and six-story prewar and post war apartment buildings including Lafayette Gardens at 330-40 Haven Avenue. Washington Heights has Art-Deco and Tudor-style coops, row houses, and post war brick buildings.

Great shopping and dining - there's everything from bodegas to bakeries to bars available along Broadway, St. Nicholas Avenue and 181st Street.

The area's easy access to transport - it's just 20 minutes to Penn Station on the 'A' train - are advantages as well.
In Colonial times, this was the country: the place where wealthy New Yorkers came to build private escapes. Manhattan's oldest house the Morris-Jumel mansion, which served as General Washington’s headquarters in the fall of 1776 still stands at 160th Street.

Today Washington Heights is a value neighborhood. It is a great neighborhood for folks who have been priced out of downtown yet it is still on the island.

Current prices range from $275,000 to $375,000 for 1 bedroom coops and condos. Two bedroom coops and condos range from $400,000 to $725,00. Some 3 and 4 bedroom apartments are in $1 million plus range.

Beautiful Fort Tryon Park includes the Cloisters, a museum of medieval buildings imported stone-by-stone by collectors. and breathtaking views of the George Washington Bridge and the Hudson River.

So take the A train up to 181st street in Washington Heights to enjoy a great residential neighborhood and an affordable apartment.
