Washington Heights Apts & Neighborhood Information
Washington Heights is the Manhattan neighborhood just north of Harlem from 155th Street to Inwood up to Dyckman Street.
The area is known for its hills and the cliffs–a real change of scenery for Manhattanites. The neighborhood’s best-known cultural asset is The Cloisters–located in Fort Tryon Park–where the Metropolitan Museum of Art exhibits its collection of Medieval art among serene walkways, dramatic Medieval architecture and leafy paths. You’ll find plenty of parks here, including Bennett Park, Fort Tyron Park, Fort Washington Park and Riverfront Park. Artists from Washington Heights and the surrounding communities participate in the annual Uptown Arts Stroll each summer, and there are several branches of the New York Public Library.
