Washington Heights Real Estate Market Overview

Endless Hudson River views and panaderia options would be downright exotic anywhere else. But not here. A growing count of urban escapists and next-generation locals will attest: there are plenty of things to love about life in Washington Heights. Not far down that list you'll find The Cloisters. Wander the grounds' majestic hills, buildings, and woods for a day that feels like a trip back to medieval times.... (In fact, The Cloisters are an extension of The Metropolitan Museum of Art.) Maximize the worlds-away vibe and grab a table with a river view - not hard, since the entire neighborhood offers them up. For a particularly tasty one, hit La Marina for grilled lobster, fresh cocktails, and live music all summer long.View more
