Shhh… It just might be one of New York City’s best kept secrets. It’s got a little more space and some affordability. It offers multiple parks, river views, great ethnic restaurants and according to residents, a sense of community.
Hudson Heights, an enclave of Washington Heights sits on a plateau atop a bluff overlooking the Hudson River. It’s inhabited by resident locals who have lived in the neighborhood for decades as well as artists, actors, young families and the newly arrived, all searching for more bang for their buck.
Like many neighborhoods in New York City, this section of Washington Heights was renamed by real estate brokers looking to attract a variety of people and distinguish the area from the greater Washington Heights neighborhood. Hudson Heights is bounded by the Hudson River to the west, Broadway to the east, 173rd Street to the south, and Fort Tryon Park to the north.
Walk through the neighborhood's tree-lined streets and you’ll quickly see its prewar charm that dots the neighborhood. Architectural details like Gargoyles, turrets and Gothic style aesthetic are on full display. And we can’t forget the healthy mix of Art Deco and European Tudor Revival either. It’s like a case study in 20’s, 30’s and 40’s architecture right before your eyes.
