Washington Heights Real Estate
Small-Town Community in Washington Heights
Just north of Harlem and west (across the Harlem River) from the Bronx, Washington Heights is a tight-knit community where neighbors get to know each other at block parties or from the comfort of their own front stoops. Washington Heights is located far from the madness of Midtown, giving it a much quieter and more down-to-earth vibe—and much more affordable real estate. It’s still very accessible by subway, however, so it’s a popular spot for professionals who commute to Midtown. Additionally, Washington Heights is home to the George Washington Bridge and Fort Washington, the highest point in the city. Washington Heights enjoys beautiful views of the famous bridge, as well as the Hudson River and the cliffs of the New Jersey Palisades.
If you’re looking for an affordable community with a close-knit feel and a lot of character, then Washington heights might just be the place for you.
