Sitting on a rolling plateau overlooking the Hudson River, Hudson Heights is a growing neighborhood characterized by its lush green space and family-friendly charm.
Featuring a mix of Art Deco and Tudor Revival architecture, the homes and apartments in Hudson Heights are full of character and construction quirks like sunken living rooms. Young professionals flock to the area for its relatively affordable rent and peaceful atmosphere. Growing families appreciate the vibrant greenspace and wealth of outdoor activities available for children.
Like neighboring Washington Heights, much of Hudson Height’s charm comes from the nature that surrounds it. A visit to the area isn’t complete without a trip to Tyrion Park and the famed Cloisters museum. Sprawling public lawns offer opportunities for long walks, biking, and a pickup game on lazy weekend afternoons. Bennett Park, which houses the highest natural point in Manhattan, merges outdoor beauty with natural history.
For a long time, moving to an affordable northern neighborhood in Manhattan meant giving up a convenient location to retail, restaurants, and cultural institutions. One look at Hudson Heights’ growing commercial market and participation in the arts makes it clear that this is no longer the case. Local markets stand shoulder to shoulder with trendy Pilates studios. Every summer, Hudson Heights participates in the Art Stroll, which highlights local artists by hosting impromptu galleries, readings, and performances.
