Fun Facts and History of Washington Heights

Named for Fort Washington, which was constructed to fend off the British during the American Revolutionary War, Washington Heights was largely farmland, with several stately manors peppering the hilly area. One such manor, the Morris-Jumel House, still stands today as the oldest building in Manhattan.

As the city expanded after the revolution, more and more structures were built in the Heights to house the growing population. The development of apartment complexes and row houses led to an influx of Irish immigrants in the 1900′s, followed by a large Jewish population in the 1930s-40′s. The area was a Greek neighborhood starting in the 1950’s and slowly gave way to the rising Dominican and Lantinx population that resides here today.

Washington Heights Buildings

Apartment buildings in this area sport gorgeous pre-war architecture and spacious five and six room apartments that seem downright palatial for Manhattan standards. The "Heights" is an area full of hills and side streets, meaning interesting architecture can be found in some hidden places. The row houses, apartment buildings, and businesses that are here are pretty short. High rise buildings are hard to find in this area, and that’s how the locals like it.

Atmosphere of Washington Heights

Sitting on the highest point in upper Manhattan, the subject of the hit Broadway musical “In the Heights” is a vibrant world of its own. The predominantly Dominican area now ranks as Manhattan’s 4th safest neighborhood, which makes sense given it’s suburban, family friendly feel.

The area attracts many young professionals with its extremely affordable rents. Between an array of fantastic eateries and mom & pop shops, you’ll find prestigious draws like the medical centers of Columbia University, the indoor New Balance Track and Field Center (home to the National Track & Field Hall of Fame), and the stunning Fort Tryon Park.
