Designed by prolific architect Emery Roth, Brooklyn Height’s St. George Tower was constructed in 1929 as part of the full-block St. George Hotel complex. The 30-story Art Deco tower at 111 Hicks Street was converted to 275 co-ops in 1984, leaving its east-facing apartments with views just as prolific. This three-bedroom duplex on the 22nd and 23rd floors has a 57-foot-long terrace that overlooks the entire Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Verrazano bridges–views that are completely protected and enjoyed by every single room in the home.

The 18 best places to visit in Washington Heights

By Devin Gannon, Mon, June 21, 2021

A hilly neighborhood with stunning public parks, incredible food, and community pride, Washington Heights is special. Not only is this area full of natural beauty (it has the highest natural point in Manhattan and boasts incredible Hudson River views) and historically important (it served as a strategic defense point during the Revolutionary War), Washington Heights has long been an immigrant enclave.

As development hit the largely rural neighborhood in the early 20th century, Irish, Jewish, African American, Cuban, Puerto Rican, and Dominican communities have all called Washington Heights home. Today, a strong Latin American and Caribbean presence remains, with Washington Heights and nearby Inwood considered the most populous Dominican neighborhoods in the U.S. With this month’s release of the movie adaptation of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s Broadway musical In The Heights, we’ve put together a guide of must-visit places in Washington Heights, from Manhattan’s oldest home to the city’s only underground street, with stops for roasted chicken and chicharrón along the way.

Taking up the top three levels of the Emery Roth-designed co-op, the residence measures 7,000 square feet with an additional 3,000 square feet of outdoor terraces.

The iconic El Dorado at 300 Central Park West has attracted celebrities such as Alec Baldwin, Moby, Bono, Ron Howard, and Bruce Willis. And it’s for good reason. The Upper West Side co-op is not only one of the most exclusive in the city, but it provides some of the best views you can get of Central Park. This four-bedroom unit that just hit the market for $5,750,000 is no exception; it offers full views of the reservoir and park beyond. It’s also got a classic-seven layout, perfect for someone seeking out that old-New York feel.

We’ve all admired six-figure New York City homes from a digital distance, saving listings that are way beyond our wallet’s reach. 6sqft has an entire column dedicated to these types of properties, in fact.

We’re rounding up the prettiest pre-war pads–most of which have classic details like high ceilings, decorative moldings, and custom woodwork–on the rental market for less than $5,000/month. From a classic six apartment in Washington Heights to a one-bedroom in a full-service white-glove building on Park Avenue, these homes are full of early 20th-century charm.
