Washington Heights

Washington Heights

Deriving its name from Fort Washington, a stronghold built during the Revolutionary War, Washington Heights is one of Manhattan’s largest neighborhoods. It hosts a large Jewish population and a thriving Dominican community. In fact, Washington Heights is arguably the center of Dominican-American political, creative, and athletic achievement in the US. Recently, the neighborhood has become hot among first-time buyers and recent college graduates seeking affordable Manhattan housing. Thus, Washington Heights is in transition as its population becomes more diverse and real estate values creep upward. Highlights: The Cloisters, Fort Tryon Park
