"On the upswing"

Washington Heights is a good place to live if you are looking to combine the excitement of Manhattan with a relaxing, airy, historically rich and modestly developed neighborhood. If you are like me and you would rather live in a pre-war building as opposed to a high-rise that you have to get whiplash in order to look at, then look no further.

The quality of surroundings in this neighborhood is still somewhat sporadic, but a new wave of development and gentrification a-la-Harlem is sweeping in. This is creating a more desirable outlook on the whole area, and many products and services that would've ignored the neighborhood 5 years ago are giving it serious consideration.

This is especially true of lower areas of this neighborhood, where new cafes, restaurants, bars, fitness facilities and living spaces are becoming available. If there manages to be a nice balance struck between local flavor and changing demands, I see Washington Heights as a good place to live for years to come.
