area is very nice and pretty safe. Especially later. We have lots new stores, bars, restaurants plus new buildings are growing. The A and 1 trains just few blocks away, and in some cases right across the buildings.
Like West 192 and Bennett or Overlook Terrace and West 185. Of course west off Broadway all the way to
Fort Washington is much nicer, but also much pricier.
I am a single woman also and living here for 6 years never had any accidents. So if you interested to live
in Washington Heights I will be happy to assist you in your search.
You will never find the answer via e chat...at the end of the day you will have to feel comfortable
with your neighborhood....
Something that Washington Heights has to offer that is missing in high rise environment is a really neighborhood feel...Yes, like Park Slope : )
It will not take long before you know half the neighborhood....Yes, so it's quite safe : )
If you are checking out Washington Heights tomorrow swing by my open house
on 474 West 158th Street Apt 1....
Best of luck Aimee !!
I notice that you are in Queens. The most important unkown variable which directly affects my earlier advice, is what is your purchase budget and financial situation for both monthly payments and also to pass a co-op board screening process. Without knowing that, is it even feasible for you to look in Washington Heights? Typically, most places range from $300K in the areas you would even consider for safety and practicality.
My best advice is to take your time and to work with someone who listens to your needs.
I understand your concern. I do recognize that im not in the 212 area, but I do have extensive experience there. Moreover, I want to provide aimee with another avenue in which she can ask for information. I am not rambling for her to call me to make her my client but to help her make a judicious decision.
