About Washington Heights

Vibrant. Diverse. Growing.

Washington Heights or “The Heights” is a thriving, diverse neighborhood just North of Story Hill and west of Highway 41 and Washington Park.  The Heights is a vibrant family-orientated community, supporting a growing business corridor along Vliet Street, including the recent openings of several small businesses, art galleries, a movie theater, and a wide variety of restaurants and bars.  In recent years, residents of The Heights have enjoyed increased activities in Washington Park, including the Urban Ecology Center and free summer concerts at the park’s band shell.

Living in The Heights

“My wife and I have lived in the Heights since 2009.  The reasons we chose the Heights to buy our first home and start our family was the affordability of home ownership, the quality housing stock, and the proximity to great parks.  The reason we will continue to live in the Heights for many years to come is the people.  The Heights, and the other near west side neighborhoods, have strong neighborhood associations with active, passionate residents.  We receive great leadership form our elected officials as well as from our district police department and assistant district attorney.  Beyond the great people living and working in our community, we also love frequenting the uniquely-fantastic businesses along North Avenue and Vliet Street.”
