Washington Heights

Lying in the northern tip of Manhattan, Washington Heights has largely avoided the 47 million tourists that flood New York City every year. Staying in its secluded niche of the city, this neighborhood is the epitome of a diamond in the rough. Its reputation, formed during the crack epidemic of the 1980s and 1990s, has left a stain on an area with an amazing amount to offer. From the Cloisters and Morris-Jumel Mansion, to the Hispanic Society of America and Yeshiva University, there is something for everyone in the neighborhood that New York forgot.
