About Hudson Heights
Hudson Heights is a quiet neighborhood on the northern side of Manhattan. It starts at 173rd Street and extends north to Fort Tryon Park, and from east to west it goes from the Hudson River to Broadway. The George Washington Bridge cuts through the neighborhood, but most of the traffic continues on to I-95 and beyond. With the A train traveling through Hudson Heights, residents in the area can quickly get on the subway. Stops are at 190th, 181st, and 175th Street. Several buses travel through the neighborhood as well, and the line for the 1 train is just a few blocks to the west on St. Nicholas Avenue.
Because of its location on the northwest side of Manhattan, the overall atmosphere is fairly peaceful. J. Hood Wright Park and Bennett Park are small green spaces located within the neighborhood, and the sprawling Fort Washington and Fort Tryon Parks are nearby places where one can take a stroll without having to navigate crowds. Just north of 190th is the St. Cabrini Shrine, a spot that draws many spiritual visitors.
Some of the residential buildings are quite large, with various types of apartments located inside. The buildings that face the Hudson River have wide-open views of the Palisades in New Jersey and the boats traveling up and down the water. The smaller buildings are dotted along the side streets, and there are wide sidewalks and more street parking availability than you might find in other parts of Manhattan. Restaurants and stores are concentrated along Broadway, a fairly busy street. 181st is another street where many businesses have put down roots. Many of the establishments are family owned, having been run by the same people for decades. A few trendy spots are in Hudson Heights, with most being more down-to-earth eateries and cafes. Local grocery stores and drug stores make it convenient to pick up the basics.
